This may be one of the most disappointing showings in MW's tenure.
I've said this a couple of times with the football staff, but it must be said in a slightly different context with the basketball coaches as well: we need to decide what we want to be as a program. If we are good being the 4th-7th best team in the SEC playing most of the year on the NCAA bubble, playing at a glacially slow pace, and not being embarrassed by the coach's personality, then Mike White is our guy. If we want more than that, he is not. Time to make that decision. Because we have years of data at this point. I think we can do better than 4th-7th best team in the SEC each year as an upper limit.
Basically, he is a less jerky and less entertaining Andy Kennedy.
This team is too cool.
It took 36 minutes for Scottie to score his first basket.
It really is not hard to tell if a team is well coached or not.
There is an unfortunately long list. I am not sure this breaks the Top 5.
I really don't get why MW didn't hire someone that knows how to coach offense. I'm not sure what his specialty is, but it sure isn't offense. Good coaches know their own weaknesses and hire accordingly.
Just look at how many of the 5-star players from the 2018/2019 recruiting classes are now in the NBA or balling out for their college teams. Now look at how little development Nembhard, Scottie, and Tre seem to have gotten from Mike White.
Because we stink at everything.
Watch Scottie tap that loose ball ... and lose it. Our guys constantly seem to be "thinking" or worrying about a mistake, not playing. When Cheese played it wasn't this way but now it seems to hit every player? I like white but it is just disappointing to watch his teams play.
Agree Hall. It was a an important game and he completely failed. This is not a strong UK team and we were not competitive. Keytontae would have made a diff, but they look so far lost that I don't know how much of a diff he would make.
there is something to be said for this.
This isn’t a tough group. And the little toughness it had went down with keyontae. As proud as I was in the games that immediately followed his collapse, this is just as disappointing. Very little grit and toughness. Got beat up last two games by teams that wanted it more. Much more.
I think white feels bad for Cam so it is now a contest which team loses more in the Sec.
Will we score 50?
Same as Duruji slapping the ball out of bounds instead of just grabbing it.
This game has not been good on my voice as I finish with Covid!
The only justification for keeping White around is if the school no longer cares about competitive basketball (or sports)
Agreed, we aren't Duke. But our program for 15 years was on their level.
Inbound sets is his strength I guess.
As if the game wasn't bad enough already, now they start playing Bon Jovi on the PA.
