Mandatory Credit: Marvin Gentry-USA TODAY Sports Georgia coach Tom Crean said his team's 80-64 loss to Ole Miss was his fault — just not for the reason one might think.

After Georgia fell to Mississippi for its eighth consecutive SEC loss Saturday in Crean's first season, the Bulldogs coach spoke at his postgame news conference about his team's lack of mental toughness.

It was his fault, Crean said, "because I'm the one who decided to keep these guys" after replacing fired predecessor Mark Fox at UGA.

Bill Belichick Gives Kirby Smart and Georgia the Ultimate Endorsement

Bill Belichick Gives Kirby Smart and Georgia the Ultimate Endorsement ​With the Super Bowl coming up on Sunday in Atlanta, the Patriots and Rams are already on site getting ready for the biggest game in football. With New England heading to their record ninth Super Bowl, there is no doubt that a laser-focused approach is the name of the game. Such is the case whenever Bill Belichick is in charge. But in the midst of all the noise and excitement building towards Sunday, the head coach took some time to hand out some praise that had nothing directly to do with Super Bowl LIII. Apparently, he's a fan of Kirby Smart.

Crean said the following after the loss to Ole Miss Saturday, according to Kentucky Sports Radio: It’ s all on me because I ’m the one who decided to keep these guys . Because the last thing I can do, with making decisions , on keeping guys in the program in the spring, is now get overly mad at them

Georgia doesn't have the richest history in men' s basketball, but it has produced SEC champions and About that, coach Tom Crean was cringing Saturday. Crean was scheduled to meet with the “It' s all on me because I 'm the one who decided to keep these guys ,” Crean said during his

Say what, now?

"It doesn't mean that they are not great kids," Crean said, "but very few programs when there's a takeover, when you have guys that haven't done it at any point in time really in their career, a lot of those guys, they move on. That's what happens in a job change. And I didn't do that. So I'm not going to complain. We've just got to keep doing everything we can do to fix it and make it better."

Think about what Crean is saying here, that it is basically standard in college basketball for new coaches to run off inherited players that aren't good enough. And those players — even ones that didn't want to leave — have then, of course, been subjected to NCAA transfer restrictions and even restrictions from the school itself on where the player can go.

Goody Bag: Being Buddy Boeheim, Hoosier Patience, Shayok Thriving & More

Goody Bag: Being Buddy Boeheim, Hoosier Patience, Shayok Thriving & More Syracuse freshman Buddy Boeheim can’t stop smiling when talking about the experience of playing for his Hall of Fame father, but it’s been a more strenuous experience for Jim Boeheim. “It’s hard to coach your son. It’s too hard,” Jim Boeheim told me after watching his son tie his career-high with 13 points on Wednesday night at Boston College. “I would never do it again. You’re worrying about the game all the time, now you’ve got to worry about your son, too.” Let’s make one thing clear: On one hand, Jim Boeheim loves many aspects about coaching his youngest son. The two are extremely close.

Thomas Aaron Crean (born March 25, 1966) is an American college basketball coach and the current head coach for the Georgia Bulldogs.

Thursday, Indiana fired Tom Crean . Gregg Doyel says pressure from an angry fan base attributed to the move. Indiana coach Tom Crean watches as his team prepares to scrimmage during IU' s Hoosier Hysteria on Saturday, Oct.

These comments were not a good look for Crean or the sport in general, and there was an outcry, as it came across as if he were throwing his players under the bus.

Former Kentucky standout Antoine Walker, serving as an SEC Network analyst Saturday, said Crean will lose his team over it.

"I think you lost the players," Walker said. "I think tonight it's kind of stick a fork in them. Players are not going to want to play hard for you."

Seated next to Walker, fellow SEC Network analyst and former Ole Miss head coach Andy Kennedy was more diplomatic. But even he admitted, "I don't really understand his motivation for saying it other than just being candid."

As Kennedy noted, "Sometimes you can get in trouble by being too candid."
