Efton is not ready for prime time. He is presently not a factor.

Can we also install another offense. It’s not that difficult to do. The one we are running is not working with our personal.

That left handed hook shot is awful

Yeah let's just revamp the entire offense mid season, should be easy especially with the 2 guards being out we expected to run the offense and a couple days of practice between games.

Come on people, do you seriously not pay any attention the games?

Seems like he’s regressed in my opinion.

Competition stepped up big for Reid going into conference play.

Mid majors aren't blessed usually with quality bigs. There's quality bigs all over the SEC and he can't match them for that. When he tries to match their physicality he picks up foul after foul.

Unnecessary fouls and moving screens are the things that need to be fixed now.
I agree the competition made the difference, but those things should be competition related issues.

Reid is still new to basketball a bit and learning as he goes. He has the skill of a 5 star center but the understanding of the game and body of a 3 star freshman and thats what's killing him right now.

Remember the story of him niot even making the basketball team in 8th grade despite being 6'5 because he was that bad...

He was a late bloomer.

Reed will be here at least two years if not more. Well at least he should come back

I agree. You can tell most by watching him off the ball. I hope he is a student of the game, and not just happy to be here. Seems like a great kid. Hopefully he comes back next season only limited by his athletic ability.

It looked great early in the year. Since just before SEC play, it looks like a scared heave at the basket. Just not tough enough physically or mentally for the big time yet

I agree, but he needs to sit until he gets up to speed. I am hoping that he will become a dominant player. As of now, he is not helping us. Seems like a good kid with a good attitude.

He needs to live in the weight room all off season. He gets pushed around by other bigs and it has completely affected his game and confidence.

Alex Fudge, Justice Williams and Efton aren’t ready to be consistent contributing SEC players.

Mwani is all defense and he’s not playing smart - think lack of offense is frustrating him on D.

Days can give you 20 or 3…seems to be trending more towards latter.

Eason and Murray are trying their arse off but getting zero help.

Gaines has a very low PG IQ as a starter. He is role is a bench guy that brings energy off bench.

Hope Pinson can come back and be the glue bc this shite looks really bad. Yes, I know tough schedule but we are averaging less than 60 points without X. That’s beyond atrocious.

We can't play days and Eason 40 minutes a game at the 2 big spots. Someone has to play some and believe it or not Reid is quite a bit ahead of Ezewiro and Colbert and O'Neal we just can't rely on.

Reid has done a good job keeping himself off the court in SEC play already. He aveaged just 16 minutes a game in SEC play before today.

I disagree, fudge is ready. You saw it against Arkansas. A little bit. Seems like a few of these players are a season away from being able to run the offense wade has them playing.

Fudge had one good game…his offense in other games has consisted of a dunk or air balls/shots that only hit the backboard.

All 3 will make big improvements for next season

How would that work?
His minutes should stay the same and there is probably one goal from the coaches that he has to accomplish every game. (don't foul out front/move feet/off rebound etc..) He won't get better sitting on the bench. He just needs to go through these growing pains so the game will slow down a little for him - plus we need his minutes. O'Neal isn't completely well or we'd be seeing more of him.
