Surprised about Gordon, but, in Tad We Trust.
Ben Mills suited, but didn't play in a 20 point win at home. Are we ever going to give him a redshirt year to not look like a beanpole?
Trust me, we do not want ben mills redshirting.
Suprised that niether Talton or Stalzer redshirting. seems strange to have two similar guards in same class. That said, I thought talton looked pretty confident last night, he was far and away the most surprising player for me
Jenkins really needed a year to bulk up. With Gordon, it's not the worst thing to get him and Scott into separate classes.
I don't know where I'm going with this. As usual, trying to think it through, not quite understanding some of the decisions, and bowing to the genius of Tad Boyle.
In his post game comments it sounded like Tad had talked to Talton about red-shirting and he didn't want to, Tad had been adamant that he wasn't going to force anyone to red-shirt. I also really liked how he played, he is probably our second quickest player laterally next to Ski.
Redshirting Gordon makes sense....with the 2013 class you are missing the banger inside and he matches up with those recruits well and can replace Scott if he leaves early. Talton and Stalzer will probably never be more than good guard depth with how Boyle is recruiting studs at that position
That would equate to an older beanpole.
Boyle said in his post practice comments that the decision to red-shirt Gordon ddn't come until Friday morning, that after the UNC scrimmage he was floated the idea, that he was only going to get 5-10 minutes a night.
but ya, I'm worried about our frontcourt depth. big teams are going to be a problem, once again this year.
agreed, but he did say if SHT wasn't healthy he wouldn't be redshirting.
Simba was a new man. He is definitely no longer the slow bug eating simba. This is the simba that kicked Scar's ass.
OT, but hell yes. There was some point where there was an open rebound, and I saw a Buff go flying through the air after it. I instinctively thought it was 'Dre before I realized that, OH MY GOD, it was Simba. He looks healthy, and ready to rock.
I thought at the Buffs Maddness that he seemed to be one of the most talented kids on the floor, but seemed a bit timid. This is probably a good thing to allow him to feel more comfortable, and stronger, but I really think that in a few years, he is going to be the kid to watch out for.
Best guess is Gordon's redshirt decision is not strictly related to basketball.
