    Look That is fair. But you can't say a team that lost by 2 was not competitive. If they lose by 30, they are not competitive.

    SC’s coach berrated the refs and they over turned the intentional foul - which shouldn’t have happened. Even the play by play guy was in shock, but I didn’t see White get mad. Then the push off at the end - White didn’t even get mad. It was a terribly designed play so maybe he was mad at himself, but my God, White should have been all over these refs. What a disgusting loss.

    That is what happens when there is no fire in your kids bellies. He is looking for answers. But his answers are in this young group and next years class. He has no one in veteran leadership with any fire. Great kids, just too mellow.

    He is probably doodling his schematic for a time machine. He is probably ready for these seniors to graduate and the young guns to mature to an impact point.

    White had to realize who his “toughest” players are and play them in crunch time. Nembhard is one of them. You also have Johnson, Ballard, Locke and Okauru.

    More likely the complete lack of movement of the rest of the team. Guys go to a spot and just stand there. I don't understand why

    Well we can kiss our tourney hopes bye, right? If we can't beat USCe, how can we steal a win against one of the better teams in the conference?

    If you think you can coach edge and passion into kids that have none, you likely never had kids this chill.
    I mean you can see the frustration in his eyes. These veteran kids are just chillin' out there.

    A poster said on the recruiting board that Mark Richt peed sitting down and his players took on his persona.

    He advanced a team that Billy could not win with to the doorstep of the Final Four in his second season, but why mention that fact right?

    This is akin to posting about Muschamp's Sugar Bowl.

    Ken Pom offensive rankings since White arrived:

    85
    25
    41
    62

    With the reliance on transfers and the loss of a couple of players early, there hasn't been one group over the entire time on which we are reliant. If the explanation is purely that they are too relaxed, we shouldn't see 3 Top 15 defenses in that time. Our worst defense in his tenure has been ranked ahead of our best offense. Defense is, if anything, more effort-oriented than offense.

    He might not have been talking about this game, but rather the overall landscape. I don't think just trying to sneak into the NCAA is where we want to be...

    Realistically I only had middling expectations this year. Losing to South Carolina at home is worse than middling. Remember that last year we had a rediculous amount of home losses (offset by surprising success on the road). The home losses especially are starting to pile up.

    Nope. It is proof that he CAN elevate talent. Because, ya know, he did.
