Doc Posted November 5, 2010 Report Share Posted November 5, 2010 "Twice already this preseason Brown said the worst thing that happened to the program was coming so close to UConn in that epic 2006 NCAA Tournament opener. He admits he became consumed with stockpiling talent regardless of fit, thinking that's all that was missing from taking the next step." I like the underlying gist of this, but it bugs me to no end how this is worded. the BEST thing that happened to UA was the UConn game- I've never been happier watching a game than I was for the first 30 minutes of that game. It was the worst thing for Will Brown's career - the lessons he took out of it have his neck on the line. The assumption that "the program" and Will's career are synonymous annoys me. my stab at the rotation (in approx minutes estimate): Black /Logan / Moore / Ambrose/ Devlin/ Metcalf / Puk / Watts (when healthy)/..... and then spot min for Lindfors. I know Will is not high on Jake, but he seems lower on Hatcher. I do see anyway, at least to start the year, that Metcalf, Devlin and Puk can cover 80 minutes. And that isn't considering fouls, and all of these guys are raw and a step slow so that's a real issue. Metcalf is a big boy and even with extra condition, I'm doubtful he can be a factor more than 20/5 minutes a game. It seems Lindfors will have to some time out of necessity/ if he gets it together he likely could be our best post defender. Allen has proven that he's not much of a pinch hitter- seems like he'll either have to earn some solid minutes in the rotation where he can get comfortable and get his shot going, or else he's going to drop out of the rotation. And it's never a good sign if your last name is Iati and your coach is talking defense, defense, defense. If Watts can handle the ball well enough that he and a 2 guard can get the past half court and into the offense, I hope we go with that line up. Tartt and Hatcher seem like the true odd men out to start the season. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
