    A year of spectating was difficult for Josh Fortune and George King, but both believe it will be beneficial.

    Lots of great stuff in this piece by BG.

    I particularly liked this section from the King part of the interview:

    Offering a leadership presence is something else King believes he can do. He acknowledges the great difference between assuming that role in high school and at this level, but claims his high school team in San Antonio “had three leaders . . . there’s a difference between the team captain – the guy who shakes the referees’ hands in pregame – and a team leader.

    “I do believe I can step into that role, be that guy and pick up everyone – even myself. But hopefully there’ll be somebody to call me out. I feel like we were more friends than teammates (last season). There wasn’t someone to call people out.”

    Tad was interviewed on News 4 Sunday night. Sounds like he's going to get a lot tougher on the players. He said one of his mistakes was thinking the players would kind of figure it out and turn things around on their own. The guy doing the interview, I can never remember his name, asked, "You were a stock broker. Would you advise buying stock in next years team." Tad didn't actually give a resounding yes. But he said he's going all in.

    So, all in all, meh.
