This was the 2nd game I've watched this season. I have a couple thoughts.

This team is competing, but you see that it's a team made up of freshmen. All these things you guys point out can be traced back to one thing: the mental toughness that comes from playing numerous games at a Div 1 level. They have to LEARN from this game. Notice has to learn that each and every play, each moment can be the difference btw winning and losing. Don't spike that ball and who knows what happens. Each turnover, each foul could have been the difference.

They also have to understand how important free throws are. They are FREE!!! Free, uncontested points. When you miss 12 of them and lose by one, this is something you have to fix immediately! It's the first and easiest way to steal a couple games in the course of a season.

They'll get there, but it's gonna take another season. I doubt it will happen this year.

Just got back home after attending the game, tough one to watch in person. Bad decisions, bad execution, could not buy a free throw. Ole Miss was decent but completely beatable, but we were just erratic. We were forcing shots and missing layups, and looked LOST to start the second half. Maybe the guys were stung by the thunderous roars for the football team.

Good thoughts. I agree. I am always pi$$ed off when we miss more than enough FT to have won the game. Lost by 1 and missed 12 FT!!!!!!! This team has very little margin for error. Like you said, each mistake can be the difference in winning or losing.

Can you imagine how many free throws they will shoot in practice tomorrow, other than Brenton Williams?

Yeah, I mentioned earlier that Frank should put them to work on free throw drills until their arms go limp. After listening to his press conference, he may actually do that. Sorry guys, but you will thank us later.

Since there are no classes on Monday, they have ALL day to practice FT's, defending without fouling. Sindarious was great. It is obvious that they want to win, BUT missing that many FT is inexcusable.

As someone who did stand the whole game alonh with many other students, I ask you, did you stand? Today was a huge step for the fans aand students in showing support for our team. That's the most gamecock fans I've seen in that arena since devan downey played for us. No we don't have the best student section but there's a loyal bunch in there. Were still in the process of creating a culture just like our basketball team is. Dont criticize us until the rest of columbia shows up consistently

What say you, Frank Martin? You know Spurrier would say something if it happened to his team.

maybe you have to say, "timeout" instead of just the hand signal

OOOOO i just watched the post game, Frank seems to think "we got the timeout" (idiot)
