The greatest strengths of Dennis Felton are his high sense of integrity and his relentless work ethic. Felton genuinely works his ass off trying to make the Georgia Basketball program better. If you're drawing up requirements for a successful coach, those would be two of the first handful of attributes that you'd seek.
Unfortunately for us, recruiting, game management and player inspiration would be pretty high on that list, too. Those are areas where Felton is not as strong.
Last night, Georgia continued its track record under Dennis Felton of complete ineptitude on the road. I can sort of deal with being talent deficient, but it's awfully hard to swallow watching a team lose because they lack consistent hustle or play dumb.
If you are outrebounded on the offensive glass 23-10, that's a hustle issue. Particularly, when your front court is the strength of your program, and you're playing a team that won't finish in the upper half of the ACC. When you consistently give up 18-28 turnovers, that's an issue of basketball intelligence. Both of those are coaching and recruiting problems.
You can't get beat on loose balls and surrender 4th chance offensive rebounds to your bitter rival. You just can't.
