Tom Crean blasts Georgia’s roster after blowout loss
Tom Crean is having a rough first season as the head coach of the Georgia Bulldogs — so rough, in fact, that he essentially threw his entire roster under the bus on Saturday.
Crean blamed himself for Georgia’s predicament after an 80-64 home loss to Ole Miss, essentially saying his players weren’t good enough and he had no one to blame but himself for keeping them in the program.

It’s rare that you see a coach so brazenly slam his players in public like this, but Crean has clearly had it in year one at Georgia. The Bulldogs are 1-9 in SEC play, ahead of only winless Vanderbilt, and it doesn’t look like things are going to improve anytime soon. Crean clearly doesn’t think they will this year.
The coach got a big commitment and a hefty payday from the school, so Crean isn’t going anywhere. It sounds like he’ll be doing a whole lot of recruiting, though.
