There is no way in hell we were ever going to have Macon, Barford, Babb, and Whitt all on roster this season.  That's a nice fantasy. For one thing three of them wanted to play the same position.  Most likely if Babb had thrived here, we would have Babb instead of Barford, not a favorable swap, and still be in the same boat when Garland's problems arose.  Nobody recruited Garland to redshirt him this season.

Whitt wasn't mismanaged.  He played plenty as a frosh, and I don't think he was that big a loss.  He's a PG in his third year of college ball that shoots treys less often than Manny and converts 50% at the line when he rarely gets there.  His handle is nothing special, and he isn't a plus athlete.  He is pretty good on the drive. If he were around, he wouldn't be starting on this team, and there is no way his parents would let him hang around to be nothing but quality depth.  He's probably better off walking the ball up the court at SMU at their granny pace.
I know you've pointed out these obvious things before, and so have I, but it amazes me how the fantasies of our fans endure.  Having your cake and eating it too seems no problem for some.  I might also point out that when Whitt was here he was steadily trashed for his awful shooting form (and its usually awful results).  You would have to imagine Beard, Barford, Macon, Hannahs, Watkins, Babb, and Whitt all happily co-existing last year. That's more than half the roster.  Quite likely Macon and Barford never would have even been recruited, much to our loss.

Sit up, put your feet on the floor, put your drinks down. Now don't leave towels in your locker. I think theses coaches are no nonsense types. Discipline and attention to detail on the filed starts with instilling discipline and attention to detail off the field. I have no problem with that.

  Cronin is 90-94 with a good curve.  Lee has been sitting 92-95 this fall with a good curve. 
Can the season already start?

Cronin is the young guy that I think could be a "dude" for us.  He had some freshman yips last year but when he has it going between the ears he looks really good to me.

These are all very nice.  However, personally, I don't care too much for the alternate "home" jersey - the one with the white sleeves.  Just not a look I care for.

Otherwise, I like them all very much.  Cannot see whether or not the pants have a small Hog on the front-hip area, but that would be my personal preference.

Also - if you're up for it - I'd like to see the solid red and solid white jerseys with contrasting piping around the shoulder area, like our Petrino era Adidas jerseys had.  This picture of Mallett (below) shows what I am talking about.  I always though that was a very "clean" look and updated our classic solid jerseys without "re-inventing" them.  Unfortunately, the two variations in 200/09 also had either "tusks" or white blocks under the armpits.  I always wished they were just solid other than the piping.

I know some people don't like the red pants, but I'd like to see them paired with any of the road jerseys, with - OF COURSE - the traditional red helmet (or red chrome, for "special" games). 

like this?

Just sayin..fun ain't gonna cut it in sec......doesn't matter who is coaching...one of toughest leagues in womens basketball....they need to play better defense..that's it

But that's not just it. You keep referencing last year's games (when it suits your purposes), as if they have any bearing on this year's games. That has "agenda" written all over it.

He played for Argyle, TX which means he was a teammate of Cole Hedlund. Interesting

It also means these are his favorite socks

5 stars from other states don't want to come to Arkansas.
Because of all the slanderous crap Nolan said about the UA?

I complained a few weeks ago about this new staff's recruiting but I am very impressed with how they are closing out this class now

 Too Early... Crow's not finished yet. Come back next week. You need a bigger plate.
