Didn't win Conference Tournament and blown out in the 2nd round of the NCAA tournament.  Wasn't a talented team, padded wins with a weak schedule and god awful B1G.  

Comment 20 Apr 2017

Agreed with not trusting the WRS yet.  All we heard about was Bin Victor all Spring long and to be honest he looked extremely raw still.  Never went and attacked the ball and used his size to his advantage.  I still think he has far and away the most potential on the team, but there's a reason Urban has been listing him behind Campbell, Dixon, TMC etc.

It's as easy as this.  The program is devoid of talent throughout the roster.  That is attributed to one of two things:  1.) Poor talent evaluation and the inability to land elite recruits  2.) Poor player development

I think we can all agree its a combination of these two things going on within this program.  Unfortunately for Thad, those are the two highest priorities of a head basketball coach.  

Comment 19 Apr 2017

A real on-the court answer is this:  Thad's only successful teams came on the backs of five-star recruits.  The only non 5star player who developed into something special was Evan Turner, and we never made it past the sweet 16 with ET.  W/o 5stars, Thad is your run of the mill college basketball coach being out worked and out coached.  I support him for what he has done for the University, however this season is his last chance.  He is no longer landing 5star kids and won't be any time soon.  If he can't take this veteran team and win 25+ games then it's time to hang em up coach.

Thats the reason he dropped from a sure-fire first rounder to the mid fourth round or wherever he eventually was picked.  He was in several fights at UF, failed drug tests etc.  Enough to kick him off the team?  Maybe so, but Urban knew kicking him off the team and sending him back home was a death sentence for the kid.  Every break home the Gator coaches would constantly check in with him to make sure he was staying out of trouble.  Kid was doomed once his dad passed away and he never learned how to deal with that.  Didn't help that his mom was pretty shitty all around as well.

We know JT is getting it this year, but I can still absolutely see Haskins in 2018 having a great year and leaving as a RS Soph.  Burrows in 2018 as a RS Sr if he (hopefully) sticks around and then Jones from there on.

Ya that comment was the only time I have ever heard anyone say anything negative about Athens before.  Congrats on sending kids to two great universities and awesome towns.  

Comment 14 Apr 2017

Bragg was charged with domestic violence and then caught a drug charge before he was suspendedKU.  DV was eventually dropped but do you really think our program needs this headache on the team on top of our other struggles?  Pass

Same situation as Blue Smith.  Staff is letting the the less thought of in-state kids have their space and if senior film/camp is impressive turn on the heat and go after them.  Smith and Taylor are always talked about on the boards, but the staff clearly isn't super high on either of them or else they wouldn't be considering UK.  This way we avoid another Sibley and Clark scenario.  Trust it.

Ehh I'll wait for the fall release which is the big one.  These look like something my dad would wear.  Shout out to the dad's out there!

Comment 10 Apr 2017

OT is a big position of need in this class after a couple misses last cycle.  Jackson is going to end up a Buckeye bit we need a high-end second OT, this would be huge.  

Comment 10 Apr 2017

This stuff is fun to talk about, but we won't see it much this fall like the articles alludes to.  We might roll it out early on in the season to get it on tape, but I don't expect to see Hubbard in a two-point stand much come B1G play.  I think it's more valuable to keep the DE's fresh so you can slide Boa inside next to Jones in the rushmen package with Lewis and Holmes/Hubbard on the outside.  Fresh pass rushers in the fourth quarter are more valuable than a small wrinkle where we stand up Hubbard imo.
