About the Hoops Program

Georgia obviously has to play better, but I'm not sure if that's going to happen this year.  Dean Legge wrote an article about the need to find some path towards something better.  It's a good read.

I don't have a problem with Fox's squad losing to a very good Florida team in a rebuilding year. Nor, do I have a problem with them losing without 2 players making the trip. I don't even have a problem with them getting completely blown out.

I do have a problem with these numbers:
  • 14 made FGs vs. 19 turnovers.  Having more turnovers than assists is one thing.  Having more turnovers than made baskets is another issue entirely.
  • 5 made FGs in the first half on 14 shots. How in the hell do you only get 14 shots off?
  • 3 offensive rebounds. How does a team with 22 missed shots only snag 3 offensive rebounds?
  • 5 to 19. That was UGA's assist to turnover ratio.
I'm not going to break into a "Fire Mark Fox" chant or anything right now. What's the point? As if that would solve anything this season.

But things do need to improve because a 20 loss season in Year 4 against the broader backdrop of the results in Years 1-3 simply isn't acceptable.

I have a problem with it being a rebuilding year in year 4.

Come on Paul! Start the's time for him to go and we all know it.

chris said... wrote an earlier piece that said this goes back to the lack of recruiting. Why will this staff not update their recruiting style?

The fans deserve better!

I have a problem losing to Florida at anything. The attitude about Georgia baskeball has to change. So many say "Who cares?" Many others excuse or ignore the repeated failings. The culture of winning must spread from football and tennis and golf (and maybe women's basketball) to the entire athletic program. Just win, baby. You think Mark Richt would have fired Willie if he'd been coaching baskeball? No. It was fan pressure that wrought the recent changes in football. We demand more, we get more. We settle for less, we settle for less.
