    Let’s keep it on Crean fellas

    I think it’s fair to say anyone coaching UGA has some work to do. If not Crean, who? Sure, there’s a lot of talent in Atlanta, but there are some big money boosters from big programs dropping big “suggestions” to people go to programs other than us. It’s a corrupt sport. Whatever happened to the investigations in to Nike $?

    For the most part truly elite HS Basketball players don't want any part of Georgia and its really hard to figure why. Crean needs to be given A LOT of rope here as a complete culture transformation is in order.

    Ok, after watching the game I would like to make a couple of comments. We tried to give away the game. Over 20 turnovers , and the inability to move the ball around to get a decent 3 in the second half reminded me of just about every recent year. Yes we got the win against a bottom dweller but that is my take. We are better this year, but not really moving the needle like well coached teams I watch. You can't blame everything on a coach , but this team doesn't show the fundamentals of well coached team. Changing culture is really tough and I couldn't say a lot of others could do a lot better. Hopefully we keep improving , and maybe we get a team that could catch fire one of these years.

    Good coaches everywhere are struggling this year - Duke, UNC, Michigan State, Kansas. Crean at UGA. Not sure what the reason is but it may be affecting CTC as well.

    That was one **** game, but it’s always better when you win. There was a stretch where neither team looked like they had played organized basketball. I’ll say this stretch at least buys Crean some time with me. I don’t expect much from the tough stretch coming up.

    3 sec wins in a row. He probably gets a 5 year extension and pay equal to Kirby. Been a long time since basketball has had this much momentum. Cutting nets down soon

    And just like that, back where we were...

    Team defense is atrocious. Bama was picking apart the coverage and didn't help they were having a great night shooting.

    The big iceberg I see is that we don't have an incoming stud for the next recruiting class so once again, we're going to pushing out this same lineup next season with the addition of grad/JUCO transfers which will, once again, take time for them to gel as a team. Another bandaid.

    Is anyone hearing anything on the recruiting front to bring some hope? Trying my best to stay up but man...another down season.

  • UGA66UGA66 Posts: 4,135 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    I wouldn't cut down the nets just yet....Crean has not made any strides with defense against ranked teams.

  • KaseyKasey Posts: 28,881 mod

    At least he isn’t Jerry Stackhouse.

  • AnotherDawgAnotherDawg Posts: 6,761 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Is he struggling at Vandy? I haven't followed that closely. Although I did see highlights of Scottie Pippen, Jr. lighting it up the other day. Made me feel old.

    Dawgs upset #20 Mizzo ! KD Johnson should be starting!!

  • MikeGriffithMikeGriffith Posts: 3,681 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Nice win over MIzzou, came from 13 down to beat No. 20 Tigers.

    Good coaching, good chemistry. Still out-manned and two tough games on deck with Gators and LSU.

  • WoodstockDawgWoodstockDawg Posts: 250 ✭✭✭✭ Senior

    Great win tonight over Mizzou! Still supporting our young men. They have been laying it out there nightly. They do look good when it comes together and they are hitting from the 3 pt line.

    Cannot believe Crean gave up 78 points to LSU. At home!
