Has anyone considered that we had 3 Srs. and a Jr. who were all a shell of what they could do because of injuries?

There can be a lot of reasons why someone comes into a situation unprepared.

Not laying in ambush for you... Just really curious as to what you, or anyone else for that matter that thinks the way you do, think is the reason.

Not trying to necessarily (or unnecessarily) stir the pot either... Although the question may do so. But that's what message boards are for, right?

Hoping this discussion stays civil and enlightening. 8-)


Go read the PG threads from last Feb/March. Hundreds and hundreds of thoughts.Time to move on.

Enough about Mintz on the Ballock thread.
Let's talk about Ballock on this thread.
With that said, I am glad Ballock is being talked about as a possible PG or at least a Point Forward like Gibbs was used.

We have a lot of wing players now And next season. I for 1, have no qualms with Ty-Shon & Mitch getting minutes as frosh. Having said that, I would suspect they will get a minimal amount of time, as the returnees will see the bulk of pt. IMHO the 2 frosh will make the best of the time given, as both appear "college ready" and we should see little drop off when they are playing. Eager to watch them play & learn. ;)

As to why he was unprepared... I don't think so. Lots and lots of why he should or shouldn't have gotten more PT. But not why he was unprepared.

Question, Jerry... have you always been a bitter person... Or is this a recent development?
