It looks like CMG is going to replace Asbury (who retired) with Kobie Baker. I know nothing about him to tell you the truth and being honest I doubt he'll have an impact on the team.
Here's his resume from rolltide.com.
I'll say it's underwhelming, but let's be honest... did anyone think we were going to get some "big name" assistant. I didn't. Saying that, I doubt we'll see any changes this coming season which is not a good thing.
Bamamag has a good writeup on Wimp Sanderson and his emphasis on the SEC Tournament.
I wish CMG would adopt this strategy... conference tournament games prepare the team for the big dance.
The writeup goes into more than just the SECT... just read the article.
Mississippi State (Alias spells it M$U) has parted ways with 3 players from their SEC West winner and NIT runner up squad. At first I thought this would hurt the Bulldogs, but looking at their roster it seemed to be a case of not enough basketballs. The Delks were probably going to be squeezed out of PT next year.
So far, only 5 SEC players have declared for the draft... 4 from the mighty Gators (you know their names) and LSU's Glen Davis (who I predict to be a major flop). As usual I expect a couple of mis-informed kids from this conference to declare as it happens just about every year.
LSU's Ben Voogd is transfering back west (probably somewhere in Oregon). I guess he's homesick... and probably sees that LSU is going to suck next year.
How did Auburn get Dean Smith and Roy Williams to visit their campus? A coaching clinic is scheduled for May 4th and 5th. Jeff Lebo does have some pull.
