Re: The Official 2018-19 AU Basketball Thread with Final 4 Aspirations!
Does Purifoy come off the bench or does he replace Doughty?

I love the way this team is playing right now and I hate to disrupt that chemistry, but I don't know if I could justify leaving DJ on the bench for any appreciable amount of time.

My question still hasn't been answered.  To jmar's post above, it does look like they are rushing shots trying to be productive...perhaps in fear of losing PT?

It would be a shame if depth were a liability rather than a luxury.

They average taking 31 three pointers a game. I understand that's their forte but with Spencer, Purifoy, Okeke, McLemore and Wiley ranging from 6'7" to 6'11", you have to establish some inside presence.  If all a team has to do is guard the perimeter and watch a couple of guys who drive it on occasion, you really limit yourself. 

The turnovers?  I got nuthin'.  Just take care of the ball. My wife does.
You guys ever thought about the fact that the guy who coined the term, "coined the term", coined the term?

I take back my previous comment.  Mrs. Snaggs needs to lead a week's worth of practices.

That’s exactly what happened against both state and ole miss. Esp ole miss. Inside presence was absent. It breeds other issues on the perimeter.

Re: The Official 2018-19 AU Basketball Thread with Final 4 Aspirations!
So...now they look like last year's team.  Streaky, to be sure, but this is the best version of this team: all the bigs getting involved to take heat off the perimeter.

Harper and Brown need nothing said, but how about Doughty, Dunbar and Okeke?

Horace stepping up his game and Wiley learning how to play through the contact is getting me moist.

The officiating was garbage, but our guys took care of business and threw down some FUNK in the process (see: Malik Funbar and Chuma "How My Balls Taste?" Okeke.)

The breakout (this season) star of the game, though, was Anfernee McLemore.  The kid is back and he has shaken the gremlins that accompany recovery from an injury as gruesome as his.  Great to see him swatting, dunking and balling-the-fudge-out.

Next up: @A&M...who beat Bama today on a buzzer-beater 3.

Screw Georgia!
Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

McLemore (this is fudgeing Awesome) finally looked like his old self.  Was good to see him back, hopefully, he can keep it up.

Yeah...that's a fun conference game: never in doubt and the team gets to play fast and loose...just like ya momma!

We get the KY Jellycats at home Saturday.  I was considering schlepping to the Plains and doing my best Oliver Twist impression for tix outside the stadium....

Until...

I found out that Jason GoddamnMotherfudgeing Isbell will be in Destin Saturday afternoon. 


I'll be there instead.

On the not-so-bright side...Danjel Purifoy is sounding discontented on Twitter.

I can't paste his tweets here for some reason, but he's talking about "being on the outside looking in" and whatnot.

Probably because he hasn't done shoot when he is in the game. I haven't seen him make 1 play while he is on the court, and it's not from lack of PT. Dude just hasn't performed when he has had the chance.That's on him.
