Default Soonersports.com: OU to Play in 2020 Diamond Classic

The picture brings back some great memories. Will we ever have a team this good again? [sigh]

Yeah, but Trey Phipps is not going to get OU there. OU needs a massive talent infusion, and they don't have that coming for at least 2 years.

Say what? OU loses its best player next year. Everything else is a question mark other than Brady Manek.

Tiny, I wish I could agree with you. But now that I have seen this team play, I’ve got to admit that I was overly optimistic before the season started. I still believe we have the talent to be a good but not great team with the right kind of coaching. Unfortunately, nothing I have seen so far gives me a lot of confidence this coaching staff is any better at player development than they were last year. Oh, how I would love to be wrong!

Eleven games into the season and half or more of our players still look lost on defense, especially in guarding the three point line. Our offense is basically an exercise in dribbling and passing around the perimeter that all too often ends in a one on one attempt to score. Our rebounding is the worst I have seen in years, mainly because no one except Doolittle has a clue how to get—and hold—their position on the boards. Most don’t even try to get an offensive rebound. They scatter like a covey of Quail as soon as a shot goes up.

There’s more, but I have already said too much. I’m going to crawl back in my hole and hope we’ll see some improvement soon.
