    Tubby better start making some noise soon, unless things at UK have changed terribly. Patience with the pride of Lexington is not usually long. Personally, I think it is time for a change.

    I actually think that there is no shame in losing going away to Memphis. By March, they will be looked at as the same caliber team as UCLA--top 5 material IMO.

    Regarding Ramel Bradley, I have a tendency to agree with you. I honestly thought with Rondo/Sparks gone he would begin to relax more and his play would reflect that.

    I know we are only five games into a long season, so I am not ready to scrap the Bradley point guard experiment just yet. Although with Carolina looming in ten days, he had better learn to take care of the ball in the open court.

    In actuality, I think Bradley makes a better # 2 guard than he does a point guard. Problem is that # 2 is the only position that Crawford can play because he is undersized to play small forward in the SEC.

    The way I see it is that playing five games in less than seven days is not an ideal way to start the season. Especially with a Tubby Smith coached team. It is normally the end of December until he actually settles on a substitution pattern with his reserves. Until then, you are going to see alot of mixing and matching.

    I wonder if we'll see Randolph log some time at the 4 when Carter comes back? It would be a nice way to change things up against larger teams.

    I too am beginning to really get sick of Bradley's street-ball antics. Wow, after watching that Memphis game, what a shame their diaper-dandy Freshman PG chose Memphis over UK... he'd have supplanted Bradley, no doubt about it.

    I like these Freshman, they've clearly all got lots of growing to do, but the fact that they'll be relied on so heavily this season can only pay dividends in seasons to come...

    The cost-benefit anaylsis between the inexperience and lost offensive production via substituting Jasper for Bradley is becoming closer and closer when considering Jasper's unselfishness, ceiling, and "true-PG" abilities...
