I am sincerely hoping - as I think the entire AU family is - that this is THE year that we see the turn around promised years ago. I like the roster and the addition of Canada was huge and a lucky break for AU. But, the saying goes, "the harder you work, the luckier you get" so here is hoping that there was a lot of hard work that will contribute further to the "luck" needed when that final shot needs to drop!! Looking forward to the Bahamas tourney which should be pretty telling.........WDE
All I hear is from Barbee is blah blah blah, blah blah... blah blah blah, and blah. It's time for results. Too many players transferring, too many players not producing on the court... and too many coaches not getting it together. Don't mean to be cynical or whatever, but we can all agree it's time for AU basketball to do something.
The proof is in the pudding. Hope it is good.
The journey is hard, for AU BB, we all fully understand. I too expected another frustrating season, as all the new and unproven players will make for "chemistry" issues. If he can put 5-7 winners out on the court, who prove to the world that they can compete in the SEC, then I will call the season a success. Anyone who expects miracles is either naïve or doesn't understand college basketball. I would even look upon a breakeven season as two steps forward. I think CTB is doing the best he can to "develop a team". I have cut him more slack than the rest of you, it would appear. I too am growing weary of being run off the court in the conference. I hope that we make the opposition know that they had to come to play, next year.
good point guard play changes everything. We've not had one in a long time.
I WANT...to believe you Coach.
Hire a shooting coach.
