No respect I tell ya, no regards neither
the SEC media expects us to finish in the bottom half of the SEC East, and 8th in conference in men's basketball. We have no one on either the first or second team. I expect at least 1, if not 2, to make the post season list.
Today was also media day, and the head coach and senior PG were on hand to give their thoughts. There were some great things said about Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, about both his talent, and how he's quickly taken to the team and followed the leaders of the team. Coach Fox also expects us to be able to focus on defense, and if the incoming depth can develop, to play at a faster pace. Ware, from Powder Springs, also notes how the returning sophomores have made strides, and we'll need Marcus Thornton and Donte' Williams to bring that better understanding to go with their talents as we replace a lot of our points and rebounding up front.
As Fox said, "You can replace talent, but the new guys are going to have to learn on the job and grow up in front of your eyes, and hopefully that will be a fun process.”
