Shaka cost us a win again. 

Why play zone 16 mins is second half, they killed us. 

8 OT games this year, 7 of which we were up and choked bc we can't be coached up. 3 seconds left and we can't inbound a ball bc nobody knows to go to the ball. 

So F'ing frustrating to blow it again.

Shaka will be back be he doesn't deserve it 



Zone allowed all of those threes to be taken.

Bamba's 4th foul against both Duke and today were total crap and not having him in OT was a killer in both games. Dylan has to just feel awful. Just make 50% of your free throws dude and it's game over. 

Ever since we signed that ESPN contract, I feel like we've been cursed in all 3 mens sports. Just gets old.

Anyone hear anything about Smart to Louisville? I’ve heard it from more than one person. 

I find it ammusing that his name is linked with any jobs.  The ridiculous thought that the Houston rockets were trying to hire him a few years ago led to a contract extension by Patterson for no reason.

I dont watch MBB religiously at all but I've seen more than two games where foul trouble in OT games has cost us...no discipline...bamba better clean that up at the next level cuz it's worse there...I give their performance all year 4 thumbs down!!

VCU to  TEXAS was too large a jump...lets cut our losses now and go shopping for a new HC...Smart is way in over his head

It's not necessarily that.  He isn't coaching the same game as he did at VCU and it makes ZERO sense.  We hired the "HAVOC" coach.  Even VCU threatened a trademark violation if we used that.  

Year 1 he didn't press at all and the "excuse" was that he didn't have his type of player to do so.  

Fast forward to year 3 (after the year 2 WORST record in UT history) and he still isn't running the offense or defense we hired him for.

This alone should have him gone and what is confusing about it is that his lack of success should make him try the VCU type of ball.  Works for West Virginia so there should be no excuse.

The lack of shooters also shows his half court "dribble until 5 seconds left then heave a shot" doesn't work wither so he should stress high tempo.

All this tells me what I need to know.  He isn't a good coach.  He got lucky with a team that hit every shot one year.  


He's a terrible coach.  ZERO X's and O's.

Wasted every big man he had here wit ha lack of low post offense.


He can't be fired fast enough and we wont amount to anything as a program until he is.

    • Rankings Storylines: Longhorns, Aggies off to hot start in Texas   Sam Spiegelman • Rivals.com   The inaugural Rivals250 was unveiled for the Class of 2021 and there is plenty of Texas flavor included in the rankings. There’s a quartet of five-stars inside the top-11 of the group, including  Tommy Brockermeyer , who opens as the No. 1 offensive tackle in the country and the top player from the Lone Star State. As we gear up for the season, Regional Recruiting Analyst Sam Spiegelman examines some of the biggest storylines, trends and observations surrounding the enormously talented group of players inside Texas for 2021 and what he’s looking forward to. RIVALS RANKINGS WEEK FOR 2021 CLASS: Monday: Top 10 revealed | Will USC nab No. 1 Korey Foreman? Tuesday: Rivals100 revealed | New five-stars | Mind of Mike Wednesday: Rivals250 revealed | Teams that should be pleased Thursday/Friday: Position rankings revealed Saturday: Team rankings revealed CLASS OF 2020 RANKINGS: Rivals250 | Position | Team | State HOT START FOR HORNS         Quaydarius Davis (Sam Spiegelman) Tom Herman’s team found its stride this summer as it began to add quality reinforcements to its 2020 class and landed some major foundational pieces to next year’s group as well.  Quaydarius Davis ,  Billy Bowman Jr.  and  Jalen Milroe  highlight the Rivals100 commitments for Texas, while  Hayden Conner and  Derrick Harris Jr.  are notable pledges from the Rivals250. There’s certainly a long way to go before Signing Day in 2021, but there are clear paths for the Longhorns to continue their in-state tear. Five-star offensive tackle  Tommy Brockermeyer  is a Texas legacy and  Savion Byrd , another five-star tackle, has distinct ties to Austins. The other two five-stars atop the state rankings are running back  Camar Wheaton , who has been a steady visitor to Austin, and  Bryce Foster , who’s teammates with Conner and is feeling the heat to team up in The Forty Acres. Elsewhere, Herman and his staff have done early work getting into good spots with notable ranked prospects such as  Ja’Tavion Sanders ,  Tunmise Adeleye ,  JD Coffey ,  Landon Jackson ,  LJ Johnson Jr.  and  Latrell Neville , among several others. It’s certainly possible to see the Horns land multiple in-state five-stars before it’s all said and done. SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS WITH TEXAS FANS AT ORANGEBLOODS.COM FOUNDATION IN PLACE FOR AGGIES         Shadrach Banks (Nick Lucero/Rivals.com) It should come as no surprise that like Texas, the Aggies have hit on a few of their top junior targets early on. That includes Rivals100 wideout  Shadrach Banks Jr.  and their quarterback of the future,  Eli Stowers , who is sitting just outside the Rivals100 but will certainly have a chance to crack it with a big fall. Of course, this is Jimbo Fisher’s program and that means the best is yet to come.  Bryce Foster  is a Texas A&M legacy, which gives A&M the early edge with the nation’s best guard — yes, someone who’s affectionately nicknamed “The Mountain.” Elsewhere, the Aggies have also positioned themselves well with a bevy of in-state targets such as  Donovan Jackson ,  Jaedeon Roberts ,  Marcus Burris  and  Reueben Fatheree . If nothing, it makes for some intriguing in-state battles between Texas and Texas A&M for some of the best in America. LONG LIST OF IN-STATE QBS AND THEY COULD BE LEAVING THE STATE         Preston Stone (Nick Lucero/Rivals.com) Two of Texas’ top signal-callers have given early commitments to the in-state powerhouses. That, of course, is  Jalen Milroe , who has surfaced as the face of the Horns’ 2021 class as the quarterback and the lead recruiter of the group. There’s also  Eli Stowers , an early Texas A&M pledge that the staff fell in love with after watching him sling it at camp this summer. There’s still plenty of dominoes that need to fall, though. That includes the state’s top passer,  Preston Stone , as well ranked quarterbacks  Garrett Nussmeier  and  Dematrius Davis Jr.  and intriguing three-stars  Sawyer Robertson ,  Behren Morton  and  Shedeur Sanders . With spots in Austin and Aggieland already reserved, signs point to a lot of this Texas talent heading out-of-state. Texas was a quiet leader for Stone for some time, but Milroe’s commitment opens up the door for USC or Alabama, or perhaps a local program like SMU to steal to a potential five-star talent. Nussmeier camped all across the Southeast and even into the Midwest. Davis has been closely linked to LSU, Florida State and Nebraska, but Texas A&M continues to recruit the state champion. ROOM FOR RANKING SHIFTS?         Cody Jackson (Rivals.com) A quick glance at the talent inside Texas this cycle shows that the state is very heavy at quarterback, offensive tackle, wide receiver and defensive linemen. Naturally, that influx of talent makes for intriguing rankings debates at multiple positions. Stone debuted as the state’s top passer and plays in an offense where he’s in line to produce incredible numbers, but there’s a case for Milroe, Nussmeier, Stowers and Davis to all make a charge for that spot. Brockermeyer is the No. 1 tackle in the land with sophomore film that leaves little doubt about the ranking, but an injury will sideline the five-star this fall. Could fellow five-star Byrd or Jackson make a convincing enough case to close the gap on Brockermeyer? Banks replaced Davis as the state’s top wideout, but this is going to be a wildly competitive battle to the finish line. Neville is another Rivals100 talent that changed teams and could star in a high-octane offense this fall. Oklahoma pledge  Cody Jackson has shades of  CeeDee Lamb  in his game and will have a chance to play the same role in the same Foster High offense. Another name to watch is  Ketron Jackson , who made the Rivals250 cut and should be in store for a breakout campaign at Lancaster this season. PLENTY OF POLARIZING PROSPECTS         Shemar Turner (Rivals.com) There are five-stars and four-stars, and then there’s always a few prospects that you gravitate toward because they’re so versatile, a little bit hard to size up but the potential is real. There’s a few in Texas’ 2021 crop for sure.   Dametrious Crownover  added a fourth star and cracked the back end of the Rivals250 and it’ll hard to fully evaluate the talented Grandview athlete until he settles on a position. He’s a basketball player and that natural athleticism, vertical ability and strong hands usually translates well to the tight end position. Several programs are also after Crownover at defensive end, where he’s a bit raw but there’s a lot to like about his ability to chase down quarterbacks.   Shemar Turner  is another four-star inside the Rivals250 who has yet to reach his full potential, but he flashes a lot of promising signs that he could be a havoc-causing defensive end or outside linebacker off the edge. Turner turned in a big camp season and plays all over the front seven for a loaded DeSoto squad. He’s in store for a big junior campaign if he can put everything together on the field.   Marcus Burris  is a tight end, a defensive end and a defensive tackle. Whatever position you put him in, expect to be impressed. He’s listed as a tackle on Rivals because, ultimately, that’s where I expect him to fit in. All of the athleticism he flashes catching passes could come into play down the road when we’re evaluating him against the other top-flight tackles in the country. And then there’s  Reuben Fatheree , a 6-foot-8, near-300-pound mammoth who is one of the most intriguing offensive tackles in the class. He’s also a star on the hardwood and played both right guard and left tackle a season ago. Fatheree has impressed this offseason and is coming into his own as a pass-blocking tackle. https://n.rivals.com/news/rankings-storylines-longhorns-aggies-off-to-hot-start-in-texas
