Was up early this morning was surfing TV, just came across by coincidence on ESPN 2. There we were playing Georgetown in 2013 around Christmas - just beating them like a drum. - -Mercy we had talent everywhere - would of been a great time for a Nattie.
Tarik Black ( 17 points ) - -Embiid ( Fr ) – Wayne S. - - - Wiggins - - Lucas - - Mason – Tharpe - Then believe saw Greene sitting the bench - just a good old fashion butt kicking like ended up 86-54 mercy what we could do with these guys now Especially with what seems like a very down year talent wise and scoring wise. – ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

@jayballer73 that unit was very raw. This team should outperform them if we can get our roles right.
@approxinfinity I wish
Black > McCormack
Embiid > Dok
Freshman Mason = hurt Dotson
Freshman Mason < healthy sophomore Dotson
Wiggins > Ochai
Freshman Selden =< Garrett
Ugg. Could be a first weekend flameout. I hadn’t thought about the talent critically. Maybe the sum of the whole can be greater than the individual pieces?

Don’t forget Perry Ellis.
And this was the year Traylor posted an 18 PER. His best season by a long shot.
The Stanford game I will never forget. An absolute low point. I’ll leave it there … kind of. J. Dawkins > 2014 Tournament Self
Self blamed Wiggins off day. Took zero responsibility. I remember Wiggins saying he always had people on him. Again, the inability to counter another team’s scheme. We talked a lot about moving him off the wing to the high post. An adjustment Self obviously didn’t make. From a New York Times article, “Self said Wiggins had an off-game. “I’m sad for our team, and I’m sad for him,” Self said. “It wasn’t our day, and it wasn’t his day today”."
I loved those days on this site … vigorous debate.
Good lord, we finally pressed late in that game and amazing things happened. Couldn’t do it earlier of course.
And before the tourney, knowing Embiid was out.
I guess I didn’t leave it there. We pressed near the end and go back in it. I did a post, pre-tournament, that suggested we simply play at a faster pace without Embiid.
That took me down the rabbit hole. Deep breathing. Thinking happy thoughts.

THIS team is raw aside from Doke and Marcus.
Dotson is NOT comfortable running a team yet. Agbaji is not a playmaker, not a pure shooter, and still a bad decision-maker on slashes. David, Braun, Silvio, Enaruna all have a long way to go.
