Dennis Felton's second team was the least talented hoops squad I have ever witnessed in 20 years of watching SEC basketball. Given that the roster had almost twice as many walkons as scholarship athletes, it's a reasonable assumption to say they may have been the least talented basketball team in the entire history of the SEC.
That group won two SEC games.
That's why I thought it was almost impossible for another SEC team to ever go winless in conference play. Until last night. Last night's Georgia Bulldog basketball team gave up the fight, and were mauled by a bored Tennessee team by 31 points. They had 18 field goals and 23 turnovers. In the first half, they had twice as many turnovers as FGs.
Winless is certainly a scenario that's now on the table. The Chattanooga paper says the last SEC team to go winless was the 1953-1954 Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. How long ago was that? I'm pretty sure that Vince Dooley was a point guard for the Auburn team that hung at least one of those losses on Tech.
Said a different way...Tech's O-Fer was roughly 20 years prior to desegregation.
Georgia's players need a locker room brawl, a night with the girls from the ice capades, trust falls, or something to bust this slump. They have to find it in themselves to not quit on each other and these coaches. The stigma of an o-fer won't make finding a job easier for the assistants, and these are hard working guys with families.
Dig deep guys. Don't embarrass yourselves further. You're not this talentless. This isn't a coaching thing any more. This is way beyond that. This is player thing.
