That anonymous coach obviously likes Tad but doesn't really know how he operates....we have had 1 redshirt in his time here and 2 transfers that sat out....but Tad can coach it
And I also agree that the Pac 12 as a whole minus Arizona is a mystery
2 redshirts - Jenkins & Gordon.
Two redshirts, three transfers, & a post-grad prep player in Tad's short tenure.
Still incredulous as to how King burned a year of eligibility not playing.
Played in 27 games for 128 minutes.
We really need to get out of the football mentality when it comes to redshirts guys. 99% of the time, if a guy isn't getting minutes, you don't want to redshirt him. You want him moving on within 4 years so you're not using a scholarship there. This isn't a shot at King, it's just a statement in general. There's a much smaller roster in basketball, so you don't have the luxury of using a RS on a guy unless there are serious reasons to do so. Gordon (academics) was a good one. Jenkins (weight) was probably going to be a good one. Using one on a guy just because he didn't get a lot of playing time usually isn't - unless he's sitting behind 2 McDonalds All-Americans.
listening to tad talk about him in the article on buffzone kind of makes me wonder this too - it seems obvious that tad knew he wasnt quite mentally there last year (and it showed in his play - he picked up quite a few cheap fouls) I wonder why he didnt RS either, though it could be like goose said.
-I'm not in football mentality. I barely post there. I'm a CBB head.
-This is true for guys like Stalzer/Mills.
-He was sitting behind multiple top 100 guys & was the epitome of a late-bloomer. There were legitimate reasons to do so: balancing the classes w/r/t wing players, getting acclimated to the program bc he clearly wasn't ready, & academics were a question mark.
King could easily be our best wing in '17-'18, but it's too late now. I'm all #RollTad too but, he's not perfect in any aspect.
In basketball, you normally do not redshirt. Idea is to move guys through the program and also to have the redshirt available in case of injury.
After reading that king grew an inch and put on about 20 lbs in the off season, it does make me wonder.
That's a huge SOPH class of:
Fortune (after sitting out this year, will be in same class as above)
Did you hear Tad's comments on King after the scrimmage?
That class was supposed to be this size anyway had jenkins stayed.
Don't wanna say I was right, but...yeah, I was right.
explain? I don't see 1 thing you were right about
