Wofford Loss: What Needs to Happen

Georgia lost for the first time ever to Wofford. They played with a lot of poise and hit their free throws. We can't seem to shoot the ball.

1. Free throw shooting drills

Bring in Mark Price. Do something. Dustin Ware should be money late in the games. Chris Barnes needs to hit at least 6 or 7 out of 10.

2. Reduce Turnovers

Too many easy give-aways. Tennessee will absolutely kill us if we are this careless with the ball.

3. Recruit

I'm not ready to give up on this year, but it's hard to ignore the obvious. Travis Leslie and Howard Thompkins are players. If we can get a couple of others like them, even if it takes until next year, we ought to make it a priority.

Initially, I thought we needed a center most of all. Someone to replace Albert Jackson when he graduates. Now the obvious answer is that a center is down somewhere on our list of recruiting priorities.

We need a shooter. I don't know who's left on the board, but since we missed out on the Georgia talent this year, we should scour the world until we find a big shooting guard.

4. Bring on Marlon Brown

If Brown only has a few catches this late in the season, then he's not going to be used much for football. On the other hand, he is a big two-guard, a tough physical basketball player, and someone who could definitely help our hoops squad. In my opinion, as soon as football is over, Fox ought to be over at Richt's office, asking that Brown put sneaks on for the remainder of the basketball season.
