I actually live in Maryland and I'm a Titans fan. When I was getting into football the Tennessee Oilers(Yes, they were the Oilers for two years in Tennnesse) were my best friend's favorite team so I decided to root for them and I've been a Titans fan ever since. I'm telling you this incase I talk about sports in the Maryland area. Don't worry, it's not a Ravens fan on the wrong board.
UT is going to be very good next year. One HUGE thing they need to work on though is FT shooting. I see no reason at all why Ramar, JaJuan, Chism, and Childress can't be decent FT shooters. JaJuan has improved alot every year, and could probably be an 80% guy next year. Ramar seemed like he improved over the course of the year a little. He can be a deadly player if he becomes a good FT shooter with his ability to draw contact at the rim. There's no reason Chism and Childress can't be good FT shooters, both guys have soft touches and good rotation, they just need to work at it. I don't think Duke Crews will ever be a good shooter, lol. His motion is just wayyy to herky jerky, and his shot is flat. He looks like he's throwing a shot put.
But, Ramar will have a year of PG experience under his belt (if you didn't know, he's never played PG before....I'm telling you, kid is gonna be good), JaJuan and Lofton will be seniors. Chism got alot better over the course of the year, and he should continue. Childress will be a good roleplayer/3pt shooter.
The only senior on the entire team is Dane Bradshaw, and frankly, I'm glad he's leaving. Yeah, all the announcers want to do is slurp up to him about how he "does all the little things," and I commend him for that - he plays hard and gives it his all. But what good is it to have a player that's good at all the little things if he's TERRIBLE at all the big things. He's a 6'4 forward that is a horrible defender and a flat out liability on offense. His starting spot can be much better utilized by a more athletic guy that can actually defend and shoot.
Im glad someone finally has the same as me on dane bradshaw pitbull, ive always said he is a liability for us on offense and he proved it thursday night with his layup misses. i think were getting a transfer by the name of prince from arizona next year, correct me if im wrong, so hopefully he can step in and be an upgrade immediately. If noah and horford leave early, we have a great shot to take over the east and possibly the sec.
TitanHope, I made you a sig last night, but I wasn't very happy with it. I can post it if you want, and you can decide if you want it or not. I'll make another one if you don't like it...and don't hold back, it don't bother me to make another one, I enjoy it. So if you don't like it, don't take it.
I'd very much like to use it now, so take your time whenever you get around to making another. A second option would be very much appreciated, since I agree its missing something... Maybe un-blurr the jersey or add in his number/position? The font "Hope" is written in is looks a bit feminine, but I actually think it fits well. Anyway, entirely up to you, but this one is very nice! You. Are. Awesome!
