I will discuss because I have thoughts and opinions and I care about this team. I would say I am somewhere in the middle right now to maybe slightly negative about my overall feelings (not near as negative as some but not feeling great). First off it is not hard to see this as a rebuilding year with not only what they lost but also the schedule has been really hard (personally too ambitious). Most people will say I am crazy but they have not played a hard team yet, all of these are annual strong women teams that make the tournament, some just see the names and think they are pushovers because they aren't known in men basketball or football. If they have played some of the other schedules across the country and in the SEC there record would probably be a lot better (even ranked teams), not that I am saying they are better than those teams just comparing schedules. You talk about recruiting, I think the past couple classes actually have improved significantly but the big problem is losing Grace Berg and Akira Levy in my opinion. I was afraid of that and seen it coming with Grace because guess what high ranked recruits want to play and with Akira I am not sure I still get that situation but losing those I think is one of my biggest issues with the roster. Also when you say why is this a rebuilding year well look on the bench and see 3 highly touted transfers not being able to play and also they have signed 4 star Jayla Kelly for next year as well as the Australian girl (not sure of her impact) but then you add in Frank and Blackwell and the other future recruits cant say that future isn't bright. Agree completely about Frank but not sure what your issue with Blackwell is, yeah she is struggling but you act like she sucks and will and always suck, players aren't top 10 recruits and more significantly on USA basketball if they can't play, maybe it's not playing most of her senior year but maybe give her more 5 games her freshman year before talking like you are about her. Personally I think both need to start and just let them go for a while. Yeah I am frustrated with Amber, when she got voted pre season all SEC I thought to myself if she has that kind of year this team will succeed but I just think her ceiling isn't that high (not night to night but full season). Your record talk is nonsense, there are a lot of teams they play that are worse than what they have played and it's not like half the SEC is usually that tough but we will see. A couple general thoughts to close and I am not saying this will happen but teams do and can get a lot better during the season, look at Missouri State ladies last year, they played a lot of hard and strong teams in noncon last year had a record of like 2-10 but ended up making sweet 16, like I said not predicting and obviously SEC more difficult conference but I follow both and see a ton of similarities in schedule scores etc. Last thing is my 2 players I am most confused about on this team, I don't understand how Troup was someone that was offered and committed to South Carolina (because no matter how much you hate them and Dawn Staley they know talent and I hope the current transfer from there is better) and lastly I don't get Garner, she was ranked in the 60s which is a pretty good ranking and she gets like no time and is like an afterthought, someone with her size that was supposed to have the ability to be ranked that high I would think would make at least a decent impact.
