Memphis has a lousy first half
« on: October 20, 2017, 05:00:53 am »

And then scores 42 in the second to beat a pretty good Houston team.  Now 6-1.

Mike Norvell, hmmmm

I like the way they never gave up and kept fighting to win.
Beginning to like this coach.

Houston has had some 2nd half collapses this year, too.  Can't do that against Memphis or you will get beat.

Come to think of it, you can't do that against too many folks and win.

Not saying Memphis has a great defense but their defense is relative to what you find at those programs and Houston is usually one of the saltier offensive teams in the country.

Anyone honestly think CBB (year 5) could beat Memphis this year under Norvell (year 2). I've seen others claiming CBB needs more time to build his program for SEC. But could he beat Memphis this year???

live in West Tennessee and get local news out of Memphis, so see Norvell a good bit.  I am very impressed with him, feel he is a good salesman for the Tigers and seems to be a very good Coach, but not sure how success in his conference translates into the SEC.  Bret was very successful at Wisconsin, but to date, not so much at Arkansas.  As much as Bret's detractors discount his Wisconsin tenure and credit Alverez, Norvell is winning with a lot Fuente's kids as well.  This is just his second year as a Head Coach.  If we change, it will be devastating to repeat this process in the near future, so while I like Norvell, I am very cautious.

It is so much fun to watch a team that fights and plays hard.  Our team is so slow and plays so half assed.  They and their coaches will say they are trying and playing hard, but when you see two teams go after like those two did on Thursday, you realize that it is a lie.  Maybe not a lie,'I just don't think that our coaches or kids really even understand what is required.

The Hogs do play hard, give 100%. 

Problem is, any team will always reflect its leadership, regardless if it's a football team or a sales team.  A great leader will make everyone better; a less-than-great leader will make a great team mediocre.

I think today we find out what kind of leadership this Hogs team has (maybe we already know, but I'm willing to give the benefit of the doubt); the talent is there--maybe not as deep as we would all like, but there's a lot of talent.
