[quote]King will also be back[/quote] How in the frick did I forget about him?:lol: I actually consider him the X-factor for next year. Could be one of our best players if he lives up to his previous hype. Updated: G - Sexton G - Petty SF - Key PF - Giddens C - Hall 6 - Ingra...

I know we've done this before, but in an effort to keep this thread from committing suicide... Next year, I got: G - Sexton G - Petty SF - Key PF - Giddens C - Hall 6 - Ingram 7 - Norris 8 - Reese 9 - Davis 10 - AJjr 11 - Smith 12 - Jones 13 - Austin (I see him transferring thoug...

[quote]So did we frick up not hiring Mike White ?[/quote] I don't get what some of you expect/think. Don't get me wrong I thought there was a decent chance we'd be better, but let's look at the facts. We lost our only good offensive player from last year's roster (this year just proves how amazin...

[quote]There is no way all of our players hit 20 in a row. I'm not sure one of our guys could do that. [/quote] I would've loved to have seen Jimmie do this, but I have no doubt the majority of the roster could. I shot around 55-60% from the line in HS (and actually shot better from 3 my senior ...

6'3 and Under PG/SG: Kyrie Irving, Jeryd Bayless, Brandon Jennings, Eric Gordon, Derrick Rose, Mike Conley, Randy Foye, and Brandon Knight. Past 9 drafts. Might have missed a couple. And if you're including this year Malik Monk, DeAaron Fox, and Dennis Smith are all 6'3" and under and I would b...

[quote]No offense but this is bologna and not even worth talking about right now. How many TF 6'2" lottery pick combo guards can you name? Any "scout" that thinks he is is feeding you a line. Coaches are encouraging him to stay 2 years right now. That could change depending on what happens but we'll...

[quote]What are y'all going to be saying when Alabama wins 82-80 today?[/quote] Don't see that happening. The one thing we have going for us, is we usually dictate the pace of the game. Slowing down the game hurts the rhythm of the young guys and opposes what UK wants to do. Normally I want to se...

[quote]Any expectations for Herb Jones next year? 6-7 and 183lbs. DraftExpress says he has a 6-10 wingspan.[/quote] I wouldn't expect too much his first year, but I've heard the staff is extremely excited about him. A lot of potential. The 6-10 wingspan pretty much just means he has a slightly ab...

[quote]Sims had a terrible game vs Ohio Skate and so did Kiffin[/quote] I wouldn't say terrible, just one really bad play (the pick six), and he still wasn't the reason we lost that game. Elliott ran for 230 yards on just 20 attempts and their offense scored 35 points with a replacement QB. D...

[quote]So far, we've yet to win a national title with a dual-threat guy lacking in the throwing dept[/quote] Blake Sims breaks the passing yards record, but lacks in the throwing department? Anyone thinking Coker or McElroy were better passers for us are high on something. Sims was not the proble...

[quote]Jalen needs to improve next year. If he doesn't, Tua or Jones should get a serious look. [/quote] Respectfully disagree. Jalen posted unheard of numbers for a true freshman, and even if he doesn't improve, he'll be the starter unless Tua just blows the staff away. I can agree that the best...

[quote] It may seem that way, but at least this season (I'm too lazy to do past years) it simply is not true[/quote] You've proven me wrong for this season. I've seen less SEC basketball as a whole this year than I have in the past 10 years. But I've seen this pretty regularly throughout SEC pla...

[quote] This comes from two things. First, Auburn is #13 nationally in FTA per FGA, suggesting their game is to get put on the line. Second, inability to defend Austin Wiley forced fouling[/quote] Third, the home team in SEC play almost always receives a lot more attempts at the line than the aw...

That freshman at Auburn was one guy, and a beast at that (5-Star, 6-11, 255 lbs). If you'd notice he abused Hall even worse when he was on him. When it comes to post D, Taylor is very solid, hence why you see him in more when the opposing team has a dominant big inside. Hall is one hell of a player...

[quote] He has, but his defense is still a serious liability.[/quote] Huh? He's a very solid defender especially in post D. Not sure what this is in reference to. The biggest knock on Jimmie is his FTs and rebounding. ...
