I was like my old self after the loss last night (20 years back). Wife threatened to take the remote from me and watch a Lifetime movie if I didn't chill.
Felt great to be passionate about basketball again. I calmed down and she offered me a Capri Sun...

That said, I like this team and their chances to have a really good year. We won't be playing P5 front courts much.
What we lack is "above the rim" players. That was the difference Wednesday night, not our woeful shooting or erratic guard-play. We made a comeback and got w/in 2 points but we just couldn't keep them off the boards and they made us attempt Globetrotter-type shots to avoid blocks instead of creating body contact and going to the line.
Also....observation only (not being mean)
Stalcup isn't much taller than Washington. He just has a sizable head that gives him about 4 more inches....am I wrong or did anyone not notice?
You need to find a different tree to bark up; especially since one of our unathletic, overmatched frontcourt guys leads the nation in double doubles; including an 18 rebound performance against Georgia [7 offensive, 2 more than any Georgia player].
It appears that we cannot count on consistent production from Wright and Stove, let alone Plaisance and Stalcup; the freshmen will have to take up the slack.
