  • Just something else to talk about besides recruiting, de-commits, and OC search.

    I just want to know what the general feelings are for the basketball program. Here are some of my thoughts.

    - I'm thrilled to have Tony Barbee and glad he finally got his contract signed. I think he is just what this program needs and I'm fully confident that he will have this team in the top tier of the SEC in a few seasons.

    - For me I think a good measuring stick for this program is LSU. The last couple of years both progams have been awful. This year we have about the same record and went to over time against them at their place. I expect us to beat LSU at home next time we play and IMO CTB will more success than LSU in the next couple years.

    - If we make the NIT this year it will be huge. I consider this team at least respectable and watchable compaired to past years and I'm excited about the future.

    Feedback and opinions are welcome. And lastly I'm not and English major so forgive the misspellings and grammar errors.

    I think they are playing better. He still needs players.. When the crowd is in it these guys are hard to beat. But these guys only play when that is happening and that is a problem. I think Coach Barbee will take us there with time.

    I agree that we still need players and I do think we play much better at home which most teams do haha. I think the last couple games (since the UK game) this team has at least played hard. Of course games against USCe, LSU, and Ole Miss aren't world beaters but we did give them all they wanted. After the Vandy game I think CTB ripped the team a new one and it's being showing in the effort IMO. Plus, I think CTB is recruiting better and once he gets the talent in combined with the effort that he demands from his players we should be a pretty good team.
