Can't believe I'm saying this because I was one of Barbee's biggest supporters in November, but this is absolutely ridiculous. 3 seniors in our starting lineup in his third year, and we look significantly worse than we did in Lebo's last year. All of this in one of the weakest years in league play I can remember.
Even if we manage to somehow beat Tennessee or Miss. St., how can anyone defend this crap, and how does Barbee keep his job?
The dude is awful. Basketball can be turned around with one good recruiting class. Hell, it can be turned around with one good player. Barbee hasn't gotten it done in three years. I doubt a fourth is gonna get us there.....
I understand why we don't have players. It's what he does with the guys when they're on the court is what I don't like. No movement in the offense, no off the ball screens. It's the center coming out to set a high screen then pass it around with no one moving and jacking up a terrible shot. He wants to run the dribble drive and we don't have the players. Sometimes you have to change your philosophy to cater to what the players can actually do.
