Hindsight is 20/20- The 2019-20 Texas Longhorns thread

I wouldn't say he started "over" him, different positions and all...but neither one looked ready to play.

 

Obviously Saturday against Purdue will tell us a bit more

Man I did not know what to expect from Luke on this staff. It was interesting and weird to witness but I have to give Shaka credit, he did not seem bothered with how active & vocal Luke is on the sideline. When Luke barked orders, he had the players full attention. Shaka looked comfortable being more of a fatherly figure. Effort was there for the most part, a few guys were immediately singled out by Luke when they failed. 

That was good fun.

That's what Shaka needs to do to succeed here- be the Mack Brown father figure/CEO type; recruit well, but delegate to your assistants, especially now that we have a real deal staff in place. Add Greg Brown III and then hopefully KJ Adams and Shaka will be here for more than a decade. Will all of that happen? Probably not. But that's Shaka's best bet to survive here imo.

Damn, I keep waiting for the blast off portion of that gif. (isn't there one like that?)

Couldn't find it and wasn't going to dig through the ScattyBevo to find it.

Not bad -- a tight win over a below average team from a mediocre conference. At this rate, we've got a decent chance of making the NIT again this year.

I'm extremely impressed with Gerald Liddell. Trading away Roach's spastic decision making in the clutch for Liddell's calm demeanor  and AJ1's great decision making will hopefully bode well for this season.  Gerald seems like he'll do whatever you need him to do at the whatever time you need it. He killed a lot of potential Purdue runs by making some crucial baskets both in the first and second half.

Liddell is a great example of getting extra practice and playing time in the NIT. Outstanding game and Purdue folded at the end of the game and we hung only their 3rd loss at home in 59 games. Keep working hard and good things will continue.

I only caught the last 7 mins or so of the game, but liked what I saw.... just need to get a third big man consistently contributing defense and boards off the bench... still not sold on Febres getting almost 40 mins a game when he is shooting poorly and offers very little defense or rebounding ... be nice to try/see other options during the preconference games

Yaklich is the real deal.  How long do we keep him?  Can we clone him?   Will we extend Shaka for 10 years the day Yaklich takes a HC gig?  Mack Brown is a great comparison....

Yep Shaka is a fine CEO - recruit and say motivational things (both of which he is good at) and let Berry and Yak do their jobs without interference. I’m ok with it

Do you know how he does his ratings system at the beginning of the season?  Is the bulk of the ratings initially based on each team's performance in prior seasons or is it totally based on their performance this season?

i remember doing a post last year where i threw out 3 or 4 blind resumes and asked shaggy (surly, whatever) to identify them. Long story short, the post showed that Banks' first year at G Tech was comparable statistically to the first year stats of guys like Bamba, Hayes, and Tristan. The fact that Shaka named him to his gold medal winning Team USA squad makes his loss all the more puzzling.
