Halftime Notes (UGA-Miss State)

A few quick notes from the first half of the UGA-Miss St game...

-- Hard not to notice the boos from the crowd as the teams walked off the court at the half. And the place is maybe 2/3rds full... maybe.

-- The ratings for this game must have ESPN missing the days when they had hockey to show. They may just skip the first half in favor of World's Strongest Man from 1996. Love that Magnus ver Magnuson.

-- 16 turnovers for Georgia in the first half, including 11 in the first 11 minutes.

-- Ravern Johnson has 21 points at the half. His career high is 26. He started 5-of-5 from 3. That's so Ravern.

-- Ricky McPhee: 7 minutes, 3 points, 3 rebounds. Trey Thompkins: 10 minutes, 3 points, 1 rebound.

-- Thompkins didn't even see the court until the 11:43 mark in the game. Wonder if that is some sort of punishment?

-- Georgia's bench has 13 of its 24 points.

-- How this is only a 12-point game is beyond me. Of course, Mississippi State has missed two dunks.

-- Damon Evans wasn't talking at halftime.

-- Handful of football recruits here, along with Coaches Searels and Garner.

-- God bless the UGA band. Their renditions of 80s standards are all that gets me through some of these games.

glad you at least enjoyed the band. here's one that reads you blog all the time. good stuff! wish i could say the same thing about the hoops team. price played pretty hard for a good while in there. trey was subbed in and out at very weird times and our offense continues to look like anything but.

i think felton's time left at UGA is fleeting. i just hope we make a damn good hire.

So, David, does the 'Cuse have any assistant coaches worthy of a promotion? We need to get a list together in case we miss out on the likes of Scott Drew, Sean Miller, Jeff Capel, Reggie Theus, Brad Stevens, etc, etc.
