From now I'll just plan on being pissed off for our men's basketball games, and it will be my special ranting and raving at the world time. It means I can cancel my usual time for doing that which is most of the time.

No, we don't. Not if they are calling fouls on us non stop and just a few on them. If it was even than maybe.

Take a step back from it, that's what I did. I've been a huge fan all my life, biggest I know. Eventually I decided it wasn't healthy to get that emotionally involved in it, it just had me in an awful pissed off mood all the time. I've taken a step back and am now barely even a casual fan. Some might call it giving up or being a fairweather fan, but I'm not pissed off every Wednesday and Saturday so that's what matters to me.

I don't blame him for being angry....but the players are coming together. That is promising , the damn officiating is another story in the SEC.
I absolutely agree with everything you said! Still waiting to get the same calls as the
opponent from the refs - won't hold my breath!

I actually feel better now actually that I got pissed off. Good endorphins. My mindset right now is only caring if win we so long as the game is on. I was expecting zilch this year honestly. Knowing we have a good WBB, football team, and baseball team really helps as well.

I can understand playing aggressive defense, but the team simply makes too many stupid fouls: out of control, off-balanced fouls, poor execution fouls, frustration fouls. IMO it hurts us in the end of games. If your team is already a poor-shooting team and a poor free-throw shooting team, then fouling the opponent and sending them to the line for free offense is bad. But our team is young and there does appear to be potential for better days. Notice, Shaw, and McKie look to be solid players that will be contributors down the stretch. Henry is very raw but has talent, and even Ringer looks solid at times. So there appears to be hope for the future, but all the fouling is just another form of a lack of discipline IMO, and this team has had a lion's share of that for years, even before Coach Martin took over...

We have some simple things we can do to improve I think. One is not let Williams run point much. His only asset to us is as three point shooter and foul shooter. If he is going to drive he needs to draw contact every time because he is missing those floaters and contested layups. And he is sloppy with the basketball and makes dumb passes. Notice should be our point guard.

My preseason expectations was making the NIT, but like last season it isn't worth getting real invested since we are still recovering from the Horn cluster****.

Channel that energy, go to the games and take it out on the opposing team and the refs. It's quite therapeutic for me.

We should be an NIT team next year... If we can't at least make the NIT in 2015, then it is worse than I ever imagined
