Disclaimer this is my opinion   As far as this season goes on offense the thing that hurts us the most is how unbelievably bad we are at passing. We don't know how to set each other up, we d

They are shooting lights out because they're wide ass open 

Just not a lot of high basketball IQ guys on the floor

When we look back at this season those Kentucky and Ole Miss home games are going to really hurt. SO close to picking up 2 really really good quality home wins but just could not pull out a close game. Same for the LSU game on the road. We just did not finish the job there when we were up 16. Our tourney resume would look a lot better with even just 2 of those 3 games had we won.

I’m sure this wasn’t the type of game CBS envisioned when it was scheduled. This certainly isn’t the level of play most of us expected AU to play at this season for that matter. Just a big disappointment all in all.

Bruce and his staff needs to start recruiting big and very physical players if he ever wants go up against teams like Kentucky and Duke and have a better chance of beating them. We only have 1 player who's 6-10 or 6-11. We need more in our line up.

So we shot the 3 badly once again and our bigs are not near the same level as UK's, so therefore can't compensate for the poor outside shooting performance. So we can surmise that unless our guards and other 3point shooters catch fire for the remainder of this season , we will barely win enough of our remaining league games to get an 8 seed in the big dance, probably win our  first round game and get embarrassed by the 1 seed in our 2nd round game.  That takes care of 2018. So looking at 19-20 we have 2 new big men coming in and are losing our top scorer in Brown. We better hope both of these big men come onto our team  in beast mode from the get go or next year will be same story different year.

Gonna be really interesting to see if they can recover from this beat down. Again, it’s like last year’s finish, just falling more and more behind the good teams. 

Dude. We had won 5 of our last 7 before this. Knock it off already.

Which is why I said good teams. Who has AU beat in quad 1?

Washington. Yah we have not won against the quad 1 teams but you are underselling how close we are. We lost on the road to LSU by 5 who has beat UK and rocky top. The only 2 times we look like we have not belonged were today and on the road vs ole miss. The other games we have been right there and so close but did not get over the hump. You have been negative throughout this whole season and act like we are further away than what reality is. We have overachieved honestly this year. Mustapha to Samir is a huge downgrade and so is last years A Mac to this years A Mac. He just is understandably not the same since his horrific injury. We are laboring but hanging in there. We have to shoot really well from 3 to have any sort of chance. We failed miserably at that today. But I expected this kind of outcome on the road at Rupp against a team that is more talented and more athletic and longer at every position. The key game for us down the stretch is Miss ST at home. We HAVE to win that.
