    Another loss for the b-ball team today. We are currently 340th in the nation (out of 350) in turnovers per game. That’s almost impressive.

    I couldn’t really watch the 2nd half.

    So what are the chances this Edwards kid sticks for 2 months? The good news is that he’s committing to a total tire fire, so there’s no realistic opportunity for a collapse on the court.

    I wonder if an off court mutiny would do it.


    If he sticks, that’s awesome. I love having a good b-ball team.

    He answered questions about the Crean shit. So I’m guessing he knows the deal.

    Heading to Athens tomorrow for a (long) weekend and DBT. Anything new open up in the last year or so that's worth adding to the usual list of spots to check out/eat/drink?

    He sticks. It’s been a done deal for a while - the most important people in his life want him in Athens. This season is irrelevant. And this isn’t CFB recruiting.

    It's nice that Crean didn't have a total meltdown again after tonight's loss. Hopefully he got that completely out of his system.

    Just went for a weekend and we did Seabear, South Kitchen + Bar brunch, Hi-Lo along with Old Pal, and caught some soccer at Royal Peasant. But likely if you frequent Athens youve been to those places, just my two cents. Plenty of good options around town, hard to fuck up a good time.

    They don’t give a shit in general. Zero problems with what Crean said. This bunch deserves it.

    It's not a great look to say this before the game:

    Probably hard to publicly blast a coach who already hates you if you're trying to keep your scholarship and maybe extend your bball career overseas or in the D-league. Crump's mom was certainly pissed.

    Yea and that same day he was hyped as fuck that his boy Anthony Edwards was coming.

    Makes me think the media and Crump’s mom aren’t all that important.

    They don't, particularly. This season's record doesn't matter either.

    I just think it's a potential concern that Crean already made some dumb comments when he's been known to rub people the wrong way or be difficult at his prior stops. Not saying it's some damning indictment, but something I'll keep in the back of my mind moving forward.

    He walked it back. Clax and several other players even tweeted about it.

    I agree, it’s not a good look. But what do we have to lose? Crean fucked up and said what everyone else is thinking, for better or worse. It’s year one and Crean is at shitbox of a program now and historically. We’ve got 3 top 100 players committed and the potential to add another one. It’s all about recruiting. Keep getting them in here and he can call McGarity a cock sucker for all I care.

    All I'm saying is that a coach known for being a prick and wearing thin on everybody doesn't inspire a lot of confidence in me if he's already so frustrated in year 1 that he spouts off. Again, it's not necessarily a big deal right now, but I'll point to this moment as a harbinger if Crean never amounts to anything.

    Seth has been very AJC-y about this Crean incident. I mean, he's nonstop tweeted/written about it since it happened.

    Seems reasonable to me, but we probably disagree about that. I only saw 1 article talking about the comments and then 1 article talking about the apology.

    I like having writers who aren't afraid to take our coaches to task unlike journalists from neighboring states who seem to be sycophants.

    Maybe it was the nonstop tweeting.

    Taking a coach to task is fine when it's warranted. Even after it was made known that Crean had a team meeting and walked it all back, Seth was still going with it. It's a coach in year one dealing with a team that a dumpster fire would feel sorry for.

    His story about Malkolm Parrish a few weeks ago was fantastic. He did one last week about the 1994 recruiting class featuring Kirby, Hines, and George Lombard. He’s been doing good stuff, in my opinion.

    His article on Anthony Edwards and recent comparisons to 5*s at bad programs was also interesting.

    Is Dean a journalist or a site administrator or what? That line in college sports/recruiting has always been interesting to me. Like, what is a journalist’s responsibility if he learns newsworthy information that a school or player does not want released?

    No idea. He obviously covers the team (goes to game, goes to practices, etc) but doesn't seem to put out a lot of content. I've never understood what he was supposed to be doing.
