When does baseball season start. I can't be let down by 3 teams this year, can I?

I realized before the game that w/ the exception of Jenkins, all of the other regular players were on the Vandy team last year. As a result, you would think that they would be accustomed and comfortable running the offense. In fact, many were touting that this would be the year that Vandy would want to "run." As we've seen, the offensive continues to be dysfunctional and haphazardly run. To be sure, this Vandy team is NOT fast. I can't think of a recent (post-Maui) game where Vandy clearly outran the other team.

The primary reason, however, Vandy lost this game is Stallings' decision to bench Beal and (more so) AJ for such a long time at the beginning of the game. It's one thing to make a point by allowing others to start, it's another not to play your 6'11" center for approx. 5.5 min. at the begining of the game. The absence of AJ at the begining allowed the Hilltoppers to open it up. A coaching failure.

I didn't get to watch this game but i think it is absolutely ridiculous to claim that not having AJ for 5 min causes us to lose. THERE IS A REASON WE DIDNT START HIM...HE HAS SUCKED! I know he has hit some free throws and showed moments of making some shots this season but when he doesn't have the ball he is a lazy, absent-minded, bad for the team player. His rebounding is god awful, he defends on the perimeter when he shouldn't, and he can't pass around the block. Not to mention he has no idea when one person is guarding him or three. Remember when he was an NBA prospect..wow that is a joke. Between his decline over the past two years and Beal's "want to be an all star scorer" mentality this team is going nowhere. If those two guys get their head on straight the sky is the limit for this team. Until then we can just hope Taylor can put the team on his back..if only Shan could teach him how to drain the long ball..

I'm really bothered by the Vandy crowd that showed up. It was like me and 300 other people. The other 3 schools made us look silly.

I want so badly to believe that this team will end up like the 2007 team, who had a similarly slow start. But though he has the skill, Taylor hasn't shown the heart or the gumption of a Byars-like team leader.

Furthermore, in 2007, Alan Metcalf came back from an injury to spark things--this team will have to find that spark withen themselves.

Though Jenkins was a non-factor tonight, I liked seeing him get hot in the end of the game against Illinois. If that had happened tonight, or if Taylor had finished the way he started, or if Good AJ had decided to show up, this would be a win.

Something's gotta give with this team.

R. Funke said...

"withen themselves." Real good.

AD said...

I agree with Anonymous 12:26, at least as far as the first paragraph. I was coming to say that we shouldn't chalk this all up to the decision to sit AJ. Maybe opposing teams have to spread out just to respect his physical size, but there are a lot of weaknesses on this team and not very many strong points. I don't really see a clear leader.

Thanks for the blog and twitter coverage tonight.

No heart.

going to a game in my own damn town and only a few fans there. wtf..........

not only that, we blew tonight. hard. no aj? what the heck? what was that starting line up?

goulbourne needs a more permanant spot on the bench....

i'm so mad. no way to even express it really. we are a really bad basketball team right now.

Steve said...

Ditto the lance comment.... I cringe every time I see him on the court.... we need to get our rotation down to 7 players and let them gel together.

The only thing stalling's new lineup accomplished was a bigger mess. If stallings doesn't know what he wants to do, what does that do for the team. I feel that he has a lot to do with the way the team is performing. Step back and evaluate yourself coach.

We're in trouble

The team is a reflection of the coach. He must have freaked out over losing at Illinois to end up messing the team up even worse. And yes, american idol still does suck.

I was able to earn such kind of cash because I read some really great home based business reviews. At website named www.home-businessreviews.com
