This Year Proves We Need Elite

Talent recruited or we have to wait to see good talent develop their game. Cade C showed why he is the projected #1 pick this year, just taking over the game down the stretch. MM also showed his chops in the 2nd half, yet I didn’t see him getting to take the shots down the stretch for us. Unless we have another Mason Jones story where a kid develops into a big time player with time in the program(maybe Devo or KK or Williams) Muss better start signing top 50 talent, ready to play and excel day 1…studs!

Weren’t 3 of last year’s class pretty highly rated?

I personally think this roster is talented.
There are deficiencies but overall, this is a pretty talented roster.
I think this team is lacking several things tho:

  1. Toughness
  2. An identity
  3. A “go to “ scorer
  4. Inside presence on both ends.
    There just seems to be something missing on this current team besides talent tho.
    I just can’t put my finger on it. They don’t seem to be buying what Muss is selling.

All 4 freshmen were top 100 recruits according to ESPN. None were top 20 recruits. I think that everyone needs to let the team play. If they don’t have acceptable results, then let the discussion begin.

swinesong, I really think Jaylin Williams can give you 1 and 4, he just needs confidence. I think if he went out there with a confident mentality and got 20-25 minutes a game, he’d be an 8 point 10 board kind of guy, maybe even hit double double - his stats point that way already, just has low PT. You know Notae wants to be #3!!! - but I think his best role is a spark off the bench.

Agree with all your points.
Notae definitely doesn’t lack for confidence.

I think the only real problem with this team is not a lack of talent but rather a lack of a true point guard. We have a plethora of 2 guards that are adequate point guards but no player that can truly run the team on the offensive end. Our guards fall into a mindset of dribbling to create themselves a shot rather than a few dribbles to pass to someone that is open. I say that and I really like this team, the players, and the guards on it. Just none of them play the point with a point guard mentality.

Any of the three and we probably beat OSU and Tennessee at their place.

Jaylin Williams is shooting almost 63% from the field. Needs to shoot more. He’s hurting the team passing up good shots in the offense.

Don’t know if it’s confidence issue or what.

CEM’s history is to play rangy combo guards at the point. Beck would most fit his MO. At least on O the guy that could really improve this team is probably Daryl Macon. He was good in a lot of areas where this team is a little suspect. He could handle without TOs, score against good D when the O breaks down, get to the line, and close games.

Pargo was no slouch his last year. I would love to see this team with him at the point. You really couldn’t go wrong with any of them. Like I said earlier this team just needs point guard play. I truly believe everything else would begin to fall into place. We don’t need an All-American or even All SEC point guard, just a quality college point guard. I really like this team. We just don’t have a “Last Five-Minutes of a Close Game” point guard
