    The loss of Carter and Miles was under estimated. Then essentially losing Konate and Beetle was the tipping point.

    Injuries do matter but this team beat Kansas, and lost some close games, so enough talent is there to do better than lose by 31 points to anyone.

    Of course injuries matter and they have had huge impact on this season.  Anybody can have a bad game and lose by 31 points in this league when they have had the injuries we have had.

    The article’s headline is interesting.  “No Excuses.”  Then the article is devoted almost entirely to making excuses.  Yes, injuries have hurt this team.  So have poor recruiting, an inability to teach defense, an inability to teach your players how to pass a basketball.  There is a lot more to this disaster than just injuries.

    The inability to teach is not the problem, the problem is a bunch of knuckleheads on the team that think they know more than the coach’s and refuse to listen to the coaches.

    Exactly.  These are the same coaches who “taught” a national top 10 defense over the last couple of years.  While I’ll admit freely that the one drawback I’ve seen over the Huggins years has been crisp, quick passing, and great ball reversal, still overall the passing has never been terrible – far from it.  Recruiting, however is always a less than pure science and is always subject to less than objective criticism.  The fact is, you’re trying to project 17 & 18 year olds into a program competing in a upper echelon conference.  That is just not an exact science.
