Report 8 games in: what do we now know of the Hodge era? in Mean Green Basketball Posted 1 hour ago I do think we have some deficiencies over last year, especially in the 5 spot. I want Sissoko to have a huge breakout as much as everybody else, but Allen needs to be the starter and let Sissoko build up his confidence with bench minutes. We are really missing those consistent 8-10 points from a post that seal games away, and let you build leads. Buggs and Noland need to be a little more consistent. Even with that said we have been in games, in the last moments we have missed layups and shot ourselves in the foot. I don't know if that's pressure/mental lapses/coaching/, etc., but if we can at least force the other team to beat us that would be a huge improvement.
