My biggest pet peeve, besides people being taken advantage of by others, is waste and misuse of resources.

Morelos shot 37% from the three last year, and it was a big positive for the team.


House shot 40% from 3 as a Jr. He was then given the freedom to shoot whenever he wanted, from wherever he wanted, and ended up at 31% his senior year, with a 60% increase in 3PA. Just because a player has a good season doesn't mean he deserves a free pass to do whatever he wants.

Eh, a lot of the people whose posting styles would posting styles would most accurately be described as acidic only act that way online and are actually pretty level headed in real life.

For the most part, I don't even talk with my friends or family about sports. My brother and I occasionally talk and laugh about what an awful coach Kennedy is, and how he still managed to score a big contract and an 10 year gig despite awful results, but that's about it. I just drop in on occasion to speed type a rant so that you all aren't hoodwinked by the "Kennedy is building something!" tripe. He's a bad coach who doesn't teach fundamentals (or any sort of offense), trots out some of the most clueless rotations ever, and who's gotten lucky with a couple of recruiting classes. That's why he's made the dance 3 times in 19 tries.

(Plus, my job, which involves reading gobs of very dense material off a computer screen, is very intellectually draining so message boards are a nice, convenient way to take a short (well short-ish ) break)

We're not going to make the tournament this year, just accept that now. We all knew that there was going to be a drop off after last season. Losing 4 starters is insane for team's not named Kentucky.

However, I was still excited about this year. I thought a starting lineup of Davis, Trocha, Hogg, Gilder, and Caldwell was going to be great, and we'd still have a solid bench. Both Caldwell and Corprew being declared ineligible was a huge blow, but hey, maybe we could still sneak in to the tournament?

But early on the signs have been there:
-Eubanks is either still too injured to play or is just bad. I expected him to provide solid bench support.
-Vila's height was exciting, but he's shown zero ability. Hasn't even seen the court the last two games.
-Miller is the same as he was last year - solid defense, awful offense. Dude still has the literal yips under the basket. He's fine for a period of time to give players a rest, but not much else.
-Hampton isn't near the ball handler Collins was and still hasn't shown the shooting ability he had at Lipscomb.

If we count Hampton, that still leaves us with only six guys who can significantly contribute to the game. It leaves zero room for any of the starters to have a bad game and always leave us susceptible to wearing out. We don't look sloppier because Stansbury's miracle coaching walked out the door, it's because the few players we have are TIRED.

We essentially traded House, Jones, Caruso, and Collins for Williams. Think about that.

Next year, JJ and Flagg alone will provide a huge boost. If anyone else pans out (Chandler, Starks, Jasey, transfers) then we're easily set for another Sweet 16 run. But until then, it's time to lower expectations and just support the team.

Exhibit B on the consequences of guaranteed contracts with no buyout clause.

No point guard. It's not going to get better this year.

I've reserved my scorn for Kevin Sumlin right now and am just operating under the premise that his shittiness just bleeds over into every other sport.

The only time Aggie Basketball under Billy Kennedy has performed better than I predicted thus far has been the 2015-2016 season.

They performed worse in 2011-2012 and exactly the same as the 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 predictions.

I haven't watched the last few games. I get losing to UK and USC. What the hell happened against UT?

I think a non-zero amount of 5A teams in Texas could beat this LSU team
