Tim Tebow and Friends

Great story. Chronicles how Tebow spends time with children and adults who are suffering from various physical ailments.


Terrance Woodbury Interview

He's playing great for the Austin Toros. In a fantastic city, getting his chance to showcase his talents in front of various NBA scouts.

Still has good form on his shot. He'll have to put it on the deck consistently and go strong to the basket to really round out his game, but if he commits to rebounding and defending, some team may pick him up.

Worst Stat: Free Throw Shooting

I don't think I've ever heard of a college team doing this badly from the charity stripe. They shot 83% and we shot 11%.

Box Score

I have a recommendation, and that's that we run a different offensive set. Florida used a lot of baseline screens to get their guys open. I'd like to see Fox teach the Donovan sets to his players and see if that doesn't make the triangle offense better when we go to it.

I'd also post up Gerald Robinson and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and run a few clear-outs so that Robinson's driving lanes are less cluttered.

Trey Thompkins and Travis Leslie are not coming back. We need to quit using that for an excuse. It won't get us anywhere. We need to recruit replacement talent and develop as quickly as possible the guys we do have.

We looked really bad and we've got to try something different.

Stopped Watching

Hate to say it, but that's the truth. We looked terrible. Struggled just to get Florida's lead down to 13, and I guess that was a moral victory. From there it looked like they might win by 25. Hopefully, Donovan will put in the bench-riders and we can make the final score look respectable.

I didn't post after the Alabama game because I was frustrated. I don't like losing to Anthony Grant because Georgia's continued losses only strengthens Grant's ability to recruit our state as well as his. I think this year's loss to Alabama makes it three straight over UGA in just a short period of time (end of last year and this year). As I have posted before, Grant doesn't need any help. He is an elite recruiter, getting all or most of the talent from Alabama, plus picking up the best big man from Georgia in Nick Jacobs.

A blow-out loss to Alabama, and now the same to Florida. Vanderbilt might be worse. They are more talented than Florida, in my opinion. Don't know when it ends. Discouraged.
