He didn't show much at KY because the great coach would not/failed to let him play. The very brief time on court were productive, Tubby needs a least 2 schloarshps he is presently 2 over the allowed 13, Please, Adam transfer to school that will let you play and appreciate you as a person and player, Tubby needs your scholarship, get out now, Tubby wasted a year of your career,

How can you say playing in 8 games and averaging 2.5 minutes is productive. Who this year really stepped up, not many of the players did. If Morris never came back, uk would one been in a worse situation. He probaly should transfer though because with Meeks and Jasper coming in, who knows what type of playing time he would get. The only reason he should stay as if Tubby could get everyone to play as a team. Remember what happened in 96 when theplayers put their egos aside and played as a team.

Greg, even if the players put their egos aside this team would not even come close to touching the 96 team. That team was stacked with NBA talent. I want to see our team stop the starting line up of Delk, McCarty, Walker, Mercer, and Pope with Sheppard and others coming off the bench. Now that was a talented team that could of beat any team in the tournament for the last probably 10 years. There may have been ego's, but there was also talent

I would never compare this years team to the 96 team. Some say the 96 team was one of the best of all time, not the best, but one of the best. Rememember the back ups in on the 96 team won the title in 98. All I am saying is that if the team we have now could put their egos aside like the 96 team did and play together as a team we could have something special. I think the players need to remember that Kentucky is all about tradition. When the players come here, some of them are still use to being the star in high school and they can not accept that they r on a team. The players know that there is no "I" in team, but there is a "ME".

I think we would be better off if Tubby would drop Woo, Gari, and Sims. The three of them together didn't do much at all this year. Rondo is leaving Along with 3 seniors Williams is transferring. That is 8 scholarships freed up. For this year he could go out and get some "decent players" to get us through. There are a few recruits left they are not great, but may at least have good hands. Surely to god anything is better than the piss-poor play of our seven footers. When you are 7 feet tall and can't catch a lob for a dunk there is something wrong. I think he sould get every left over in the state. At least boys from Kentucky usually play hard and that is a hell of a lot more than I can say for this pathetic squad form this year. There is talent there, but none of them have any heart. I will take Richie, John, Darren, Sean, or Jeff any day of the weak over any single player we have this year.
