But, boy, the product on the floor this year was chock full of problems. Weak on rebounding**, weak on defense, weak on getting the ball down low.
Unable to put folks away, unable to win on the road and unable to focus, it seemed at times. Just generally weak, but with great dunking.
Baby steps, I guess.
Update from the comments (anonymous):
We went from a completely uncompetitive team last year to a team that was in almost every game we played this year. Yes, we lost a lot of close games, but you don't learn how to win those types of games, especially on the road, in just one season at a program that has been inept as Georgia's has in recent years. ...Hey, I didn't say I wasn't hopeful, I said I wasn't impressed.
Don't know where you get your comments about rebounding and getting the ball down low. I'm guessing you just watched a few games and decided now wasn't quite the right time to jump on the bandwagon. We were one of the better rebounding teams in the conference and our offensive execution was night and day compared to last year. We pretty much got any shot we wanted. ...
If we can keep Fox around for 10+ years, I promise you this program will finally start to reach the enormous potential that it has always had.
**But the commenter is correct, Georgia was No. 2 in the SEC in rebound margin and No. 1 in defensive rebounding, if No. 7 in offensive rebounding, per secsports.com. I am quite honestly shocked by that.
