Florida def. Auburn, 78-69

That's a wrap. Florida scored for too many easy baskets and Auburn didn't.

Frankie Sullivan was awesome. Tay Waller wasn't.

That's your story.

I'll add more later.

I will not worry about it. No matter what i think, they will not listen to me. They will do what they will do. I will still pull for AU if the hire a new guy or fire Lebo.
Why not hire that dude that coaches the UT womens team. He can really coach.

Some Auburn basketball observations (just one man's opinion).

-To blame Lebo totally for tonight or this season is unfair. The talent disparity tonight was very evident. I will not go into the reason for that disparity because I have too many times.

-Whether or not Lebo stays or goes I am ok with the decision. If they do let him go then they had better spend some money and get someone that fires up the fan base.

-I have said more than once that Sullivan is one heck of a player. Who over is the coach next year needs to run the offense through him. Not only is he a good athlete but he understands the game as well.

-I was very disappointed tonight that with his job on the line Lebo showed not fire or passion.

-Not that we would have won(with terrible defense)but that was some questionable officiating. very ticky tack when it came to Auburn.

-The young guys look like that could turn out to be solid players. the team will be much better next year (although the record may not).

The head coach is ultimately responsible for the success of the team. He has no option but to be at fault for failure.

I was able to log in to the campfire via blackberry but I couldn't post anything. Bummer.

CH=B - if you can't blame the coach, then I don't know who in the hell to blame. Al Gore maybe?

My heart was hurting for Tay Waller. I really like that kid and I know he's going to re-live that game for a long, long time. I hurt for him.

Frankie Sullivan is exactly what everybody thought he was. A gamer and a winner. Although I wish he didn't get quite so much air under the three ball.

Chuch Person as the head coach? Mmmm ... I don't know. I think I like him to much to see him do that to himself.

9:33 PM  
Blogger Phormerly Phred said...

For the record, I think Billy Donovan is 100 times better at X's and O's than Jeff Lebo, as evidenced by the 25 or so uncontested dunks that Florida had tonight.

when's A Day?

9:55 PM  
Blogger Jet Hates UAT said...

I'll be the first alarmist.

Chuck Person concerns me greatly. I'm not convinced that handing the keys to the program to a guy who's never recruited a player, nor coached a game in college basketball is a solid plan. Yes, Chuck is a name, but it's a distant name to the youth of today -- and that's who matters.

Are the AAU brokers and HS coaches going to fall at his feet? I don't know.

Does Chuck have a plan, or just a vague notion? I want a guy hungry to be a successful college basketball coach with a plan ready to sell the program and the plan.

Don't forget Lebo was a great at one of the most prestigious programs of all time (UNC). I would not hire Person just because he was an Auburn legend. We need a coach with experience and someone who is looking for a very difficult challenge.

I think Auburn needs a change. Lebo is a good guy but it's time for Auburn to move in a different direction.

10:08 PM  
Blogger Jet Hates UAT said...

Scott ... I'm definitely for change. But I'm not sure Chuck is the change we need.

PF- Yes

John Brady should get a look.

Can we get the coach from Sienna, Niagra, Sam Houston State, Butler, Robert Morris, Montana?

Seems these guys make the tourney every other year in weaker conferences. They get talent. Look at Gonzaga. Anyone know where they are located? They decided to go bigtime several years ago and never looked back.

Cincinnati has West Virginia sweating right now.

Imagine what I could at Auburn.

10:15 PM  
Blogger Miller said...

I know these smaller schools play in smaller conferences, and maybe the focus is on basketball more than football... but, they aren't in a major conference with tv deals... They also don't have facilities that beat the Beave... much less better. But, they are still able to attract talent, and get to the tourney, and make a run every once in a while.

I don't think AU has a leg to stand on using the facilities excuse, because that is all it is, an excuse not to go out and put forth the effort to recruit talented players.
In basketball, especially college basketball with top players (freshmen) hopping to the NBA first chance they get), all it takes is 1 difference maker and some role guys to make a run. If you don't put forth the effort to try and get 1 guy to come in to be a difference maker, then I don't want you here.

AU's team is made up of several role players, and that is it. No size, no floor general. That's not because of an AAU restriction (which you can still recruit those kids through other avenues... just pick up the phone... it's a lame excuse).

No, I don't know who the right fit would be for coach at AU. But, after 6 years, I can definitively say that it is not Jeff Lebo. He may be one of the nicest guys in the profession, but he's not working out at AU. It is time for a change. The perfect time actually. New Arena, losing most of your starters (so new lineup)... perfect time to bring in a new coach to inject a new energy into the program.
New energy = renewed interest from the fans.

Good morning all. If you all read my comments I said you can't completely blame Lebo. Yes it is his team and he is ultimately responsible, but how can you not see the impossible task that he has. I'm not saying he has done a great job, and I don't know if he is a good coach. I don't think anyone knows because he hasn't been given a full deck of cards to play with.

6:23 AM  
Blogger CH=B said...

Its silly to think that facilities are not a major factor in recruiting(miller). You also can't underestimate the factor AAU coaches have on where a kid goes to school. So Lebo has had probably the two most important recruiting factors taken out of the equation. What do you expect any team to look like when you do that?

6:26 AM  
Blogger CH=B said...

And who are these people on here push Barkely? That would be the absolute worst thing Auburn could do. He is a clown that would ruin us. We don't need his racism, drinking, gambling or adultery antics at Auburn. I will say I do drink from time to time and I do gamble from time to time, but you mix them together and in excess and you have issue. Plus he has diarrhea of the mouth.

6:30 AM

Ok enough out of me this morning. Obviously I'm in the minority for showing any support to Lebo. Like I have said before I can see going either way with him.

When does spring practice start? That is something we can all agree on.

I don't frequent that area, but I know that it's still there. That whole boom of high rise condos was a little ridiculous for this area, and now seems to be mostly unpopulated. You drive down that section of Gulfshore, even in season, and see a good 50% of the units in those buildings with their hurricane shutters still dropped. The same can be said, to a lesser extent, for the high rises on Marco. I hear Cape Coral and FMB are similar, but have never been to either.

Luckily the coyotes didn't get any animals of value, like a dog or something.

I half expected a blog entitled Lebo Watch, Day 1 today. After all, it is firing season.

I'll send my neighbor's dogs to them right now.

Oops. Coyotes have allegedly taken small dogs out of their back yards down here. I don't really believe it, because this is way out of their known habitat zone, but that's what the news says.

The occasional alligator eating her is my biggest fear. She's usually skeptical of birds of prey, and just chases ducks and cranes and stuff. I'm not sure what came over her, but it was obvious she realized her mistake when she came running in.

Okay. I'm out for the weekend. Keep an eye out for Jay G chasing Lebo.

I will never own a house within 1 hour of a hurricane-prone coast, in California, between St. Louis and Memphis, or on the slope of a volcano.


I also won't live with alligators.

I did make it back on but see no fireworks from JGT. But it is early.

Well THT, then I guess I shouldn't even bother mentioning to you that I am selling my lake house on Volcano Island just off the coast of Florida in a gated community where everyone else is a former gang member from California. I was gonna hook you up.

The urban legend we heard when living in Ft. Myers was that the DNR killed a gator in Cape Coral with 8 flea collars in it's stomach.

A kid was theoretically eaten by an alligator in Decatur a few years ago according to my office mate. Supposedly alligators show up further north of their normal habitat more often than you would think.

I choose to believe him because it is awesome to think their are alligators around.

Michael, maybe Harrison would be interested in the volcano lake house. He could move there with his remaining cats, hide behind his keyboard and field punts.

My fishing buddy saw a gator in Lay Lake near Bham a couple of year ago. It's that dang global warming I tell ya.
