Default Re: Would you consider the Mens Basketball Team

I voted yes (for right now). Most of our visible athletic teams are pretty good and the basketball team right now is not very competitive. Right now we are in the bottom of the SEC, sort of like Kentucky is in football. However I, like many others, see promise in what Frank Martin is doing. I think that next year we will be more competitive,and the next year we will be a SEC contender......so I am not complaining but I think right now we are bottom of the SEC.

It's only been about 5 or 6 years since that win over number 1 Kentucky and about 8 years since we won the NIT, back-to-back. We haven't been in the NCAA Tournament, which is the problem. Frank Martin knows how to get teams to the NCAAT and win games there, but he has to be given adequate time to get us there. In Frank McGuire's first 3 seasons we were 6-17, 11-13 and then 16-7. It takes a little time.

Absolutely not. The team is working hard and playing as well as they can. The problem is they are young and are working through growing pains. If the effort wasn't there, then yes they would be an embarrassment but that isn't the case.

A black eye? That's quite harsh, don't you think? No, a black eye is a brawl between football teams, or a coach raping children. A below average basketball team isn't a black eye.

I say no. The squad we have this year has been sticking around I n games you would say they would not have a chance. Looking at how many fresh play and our lack of senior leadership this is a damn good team. I see this team being a thorn in some butts later down the line. I give it next year and the year after with the group of guys we have now and this program will make a 360 just like out football team did.

For now, yes. We look ridiculous playing in such a nice arena like the CLA while being as inept at the game of basketball as we are.

To me, it creates the appearance that we are really trying to have a good program, yet our attempts pathetically fail.

It won't be for too long though.

I see your point and agree with you. I think you mean the program will make a 180 dude.
A 360 puts you right back in the same position ;)

in·ept
iˈnept/Submit
adjective
1.
having or showing no skill; clumsy.

This is the definition of inept. Our players clearly play and understand basketball. They have skill. Maybe a better word would be inexperienced, which is not the same as inept.

Yes we are trying to have a better team. We are doing the right things to draw the best recruits we can. We have a big name coach. We have a nice, big arena. These things take time, and to say that we are inept in no way describes this program or where it is headed.

Disappointing yes but black eye hell no. Martin has a long way to go, Horn left this program in just a little shape then when Fat Brad left for Tatertown. This is going to take some time, but we are the point of the season that the stupid mistakes shouldn't be happening now.

Default Re: Would you consider the Mens Basketball Team

You would swear Frank is in his 12th season as coach with no type of upside. The basketball program is not a black eye on athletics. But just from listening around, it seems a lot of people are just impatient with watching the team grow.

As someone said, Staley had her fair share of critics too during her first 3 years. Now she has one of the best programs not just in the SEC, but in the nation. Frank is going to do the same thing with the men's team and despite the record, you can already see the improvements happening.

Y'all just wait. This team is going to be good.

Watching them grow up is like watching a teenager grow up. If it was easy, it wouldn't be any fun and the finished product wouldn't feel as sweet.

This team really needs to pull out one of these close conference games. Geting blown out on the road and then losing buzzer beaters at home can be very demoralizing to a young team and a not so young fanbase. If we quit on them now how can we expect them not to quit on themselves.
