Hogs Hoop Season Mercifully Comes to an End [Poll]

The Hogs fell to LSU Thursday in the first round of the NCAA tournament, 70-54, ending their season at 18-14. The season wasn’t a total bust, but it’s hard not to be disappointed in how the Hogs have played the past month.

After knocking off Vanderbilt on the last day of January, the Hogs went into February seemingly poised to make an NCAA tournament run. They were on most experts “bubble teams” radar and with road games ahead against LSU, Georgia, Tennessee and Auburn (all teams with losing records), most people felt that if the Hogs could ever get over the road hump, they had the potential to make a run.

It was not to be. The month of February turned out to be brutal for the Hogs as they lost 7 out of 9 games (and other than the LSU and Ole Miss losses, the games weren’t even close).  It was probably one of the worst months of Hog basketball I’ve watched since Nolan’s first year.

The thing that was most disappointing to me was how it seemed like our guys just quit at the end. True, there were a few players who stood out and refused to quit (BJ Young, Mickelson come to mind), but there is no doubt the team as a whole was out played, out hustled and out classed for the last month of the season and some of that has to fall on the coach.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I am a Coach Anderson fan and by no means am I calling for his head. But, it was obvious to me he had lost control of his team in the final month of the season. They simply weren’t giving the effort.

Now to our poll question: How Many Seasons Do You Think Coach Anderson Deserves to Turn Things Around?
