That was terrible. A kid with advanced post moves, who averaged double figures without a college ready body isn't an adequate post threat? This guy clearly only follows a couple of Pac 12 teams (UA, UCLA).
Agreed on its atrociousness. Eammon Brennan pays little to no attention to the Pac, that was known well before this.
There is a lot of kool-aide being consumed in the comments to those articles. Colorado is still an afterthought by many in this conference.
I don't really see the issue with it. It's a worse case scenario. Personally, I expect Scott to have a great year, especially with a few more pounds on him and with more minutes at Power Forward. But he did struggle in Pac-12 play, especially late. Some of that was likely related to him getting thrown down/face planted against ASU, but he did struggle against bigger players.
I think I am more worried about his defense, tho, then the offense.
How does that make sense? Scott as a Freshman averaged 10.2 points and 5.7 boards a game, how is he not a interior threat already?
I found these comments funny...
^^by the same guy^^
He doesn't write that he isn't an interior threat already. At least the way I take it, he writes that he isn't the type of threat needed to take the team to another level. I'm assuming by another level, he means Sweet 16 type/Top 3 in the Pac 12 type of level. In the context of worst case scenario, with the knowledge that Josh definitely struggled his last 10 or so Pac 12 games last season (6.3 PPG, 5.3 RPG, 39% FG% his last 10.5 games with ASU being the 0.5 game), don't really find anything he wrote to be terribly offensive.
Nothing is terribly offensive, it's just not a very good piece...on CU or any other team.
