He's not writing the cats off yet... They've still got a couple months to get it right... However, they really can't lose very many more games unless they plan on winning the SEC Tournament.
I really believe that this years team lacks veteran leadership. "Uncle Julius" is the closest thing this team has and he is learning an all new system the same as everybody else.
Last year had Darius Miller to rally the team and take big shots. The year before that was Josh Harrellson, before that was Patrick Patterson and the holdovers from the Billy the Clyde era.
Recruiting could really get interesting if this team continues to regress. I know the NBA drafts on talent alone, but Archie Goodwin and Alex Poythress both would be better off coming back for a second year. Add in the Harrison twins and James Young and it might be more loaded than we thought.
