Oh? Then you could argue that the schedule isn't hard enough. No point in playing a school that isn't from the upper half a major conference.

err. not where i was going. I am just saying that playing tough teams consistently is a good thing. so far, we've been doing that for the most part.

you don't want to schedule many cupcakes, especially with a young team like this

Right on. Get better by playing the best. It's why we hose Clemson in football every year.

1 step forward, 2 steps back. No dribble penetration, no attacking the basket, no offensive sets to create shots. Swiss cheese defense. And Frank very clearly just quit after a certain point tonight, which is very disconcerting. Night and day from last night's team which actually looked and felt like a D1 basketball team.

I wouldn't necessarily say that. If that was the case, we'd have a lot more than a 5 streak on them. I think it helps, but at the end of the day, you play like your coached. Dabo made them soft, and until he leaves, it'll be that way.

Consistency...which is something we knew would be an issue with so many freshmen and sophomores playing.

It is going to be a year where we don't know which team will show up...the one that beat St. Mary's and pushed Baylor to the limit, or the one that will get blown out, like the one tonight or against Oklahoma State.

I don't think we are inconsistent. We are just a bad team right now. We still need better players, shooters, scorers, ball-handlers, defenders. Guys that just play with better control with the ball, and more control of themselves and know how to defend and beat a defense. We need players better in ALL of those areas. We also need who we do have to play more together as a unit. Yeah, we beat St. Mary's, but it looks like they didn't show up. We won't make it to any tournament counting on teams to have off-games and getting outplayed by teams like SC Upstate and Manhattan. I am not going to accept any excuses about how we are playing, but it is going to take a lot to time for this team to get better and we just need to accept the lumps. Try not to think about it too much. Enjoy the Holidays, enjoy the Capital One Bowl and the other bowl games, enjoy the success of the Women's basketball team, enjoy football recruiting season and the upcoming baseball season, but don't even worry about our Men's basketball team right now, because if you do you won't enjoy it. It's a mess right now that is trying to be straightened out.

Who said they did? We WILL be good, but it takes experience AND talent. Even Kentucky is struggling with a young group of top recruits.

Worry about it all you want but it's not going to do you any good. How about this, here is my one big pat on their backs for all their effort for the entire season, win, lose or get crushed. Might as well as get it all out of the way.

Sorry, but I physically can't watch my team play poorly and get embarrassed. I can't do it. I'd try to gouge out my eyes if you tied me to a chair and to make me watch. If that makes me a "Fairweather" fan than so be it. This is this fifth year in a row this team has been this awful, as a fan you can only take so much of this. I don't feel I am obligated as a fan to witness anymore of the same ineptitude than I already have, and I think that goes for all of us.

I tried, but I am done for this season or until they are ready to be a real basketball team, because they are not ready right now.

I agree, they are young and this is what you get. Just wait for 2 more years when we are in the sweet sixteen. That will be fun.

Not to worry..we are young, young, young...inexperienced, inexperienced....at some point we will actually be able to make a shot when we need one and perform on defense when we need a stop...but not to worry that will happen when we are old, old, old...and experienced .. experienced...I got some pigs that fly...one day I will eat my words..but I don't need to worry for a while...I hear Kentucky and Fla are dropping out of basketball...
