I couldn’t turn it off.... I was there.

It was fun to watch anther set of faithful suffer for a change.

That KD is one tough little MF. A shot to the junk and another to the nose and there he is
In the middle of the final regulation time scrum.

Good win.

Everyone in the place knew it. Every man in the place felt it.

And on Bandoumel... his drive. The hoop in OT happened right in front of me. The look on his face going to the hoop was total determination. He’s coming along nicely. Getting three years from him may be a true win.

I think this will not play out. IMHO, Georgia and Vandy are both going to be middle of the pack SEC teams. They aren't going to make the NCAA tourney, I don't think, but they also aren't going to be a huge stain on anyone's tournament resume, especially in their building.

Vandy has warts and can't defend, but they shoot the ball from three well enough to beat several teams in the SEC, and Pippen is a good enough point guard to generate good looks on a consistent basis. Davis struggled defensively with him more than any opposing point guard this year. Very quick with good size.

Our victory over a middling to lower tier SEC team has people on this board celebrating.
People are drinking the kool aid and missing the overall picture.
We have compiled an impressive record against a terrible schedule.
Our conference might be the worst its been since the AAC started and will likely be a two bid league to the NCAA. We will have to win the tournament in Fort Worth to get an NCAA bid.
The sad thing is this could've been a year to sneak into the NCAA tournament bc all of college basketball is topsy-turvy this season. But we handcuffed ourselves before the first tipoff in November with a schedule that will be laughed out of the committee room. And a weakened AAC means less opportunities to earn quadrant one and two wins.

I like winning, but I'd love to win an NCAA tournament game or conference titles.
We are nowhere in any tourney projections for a reason, even with our record.
I'm not asking for an NCAA title, just a coach who can take our roster and get a win in the tourney. And we're not blowing by Memphis or WSU this year for an AAC title.
Jank has done nothing this season to show me he's the man who can make things happen.
We're two months into the season and we have no identity on offense other than run down the clock and jack up a shot whenever someone feels like it.

Just relax and enjoy yourself! It's basketball season and we are at least competitive this season. We'll find out soon enough how the season goes and what happens with the coaching staff too.

Well hes only asking for what LB couldn't do.

And I think the model with the weak schedule worked for football - that was a fugazi , and we were ranked almost the entire year.

Apparently griping and moaning about the weak schedule will make it improve. We have enough people doing it that it should be in the top 10 hardest soon.

I have to say coming back from 15 down with 6 minutes left was exciting to me even if we were playing the Nashville Boys and Girls Club. It was a fun game to watch.

Nothing can be done now other than to go through the season and see what happens. I can only imagine the displeasure if we were to somehow get to the dance and God forbid, win a game.

I would be thrilled if that happened. I would be shocked if it did.
It's no fun watching the program fall apart and then having someone in charge who doesn't care.
Football is fun because we're winning and we have an obvious plan that's being enacted to sustain success.
Jank is hoping to get by with minimal effort. So, sorry that pointing out obvious flaws in the model our coach is employing upsets everyone.

Well do it just one more time so maybe we will understand what the problem is. And then go close the barn door because the horses got out.
