    McKnight

    Went to the game last night and I was really interested to see how all the freshmen would play. I noticed McKnight didn't come off the bench untill the last 45 seconds. With our lack of bigs does anyone know why he isn't playing at least a little more than the last minute?

    Re: McKnight

    Not ready yet. I'm pretty sure he didn't start practicing until last week.

    Re: McKnight

    Talk all fall is that he has the longest way to go (which is kind of scary considering our frontline).

    He also just starting practicing due to some health issues.

    I don't really understand this - ready for what? It didn't look like they were running any complicated offensive sets; seems like it would have been an alright opportunity to try and get him a few minutes here or there and get some game legs.

    Also - I would think that of all the competition, he would be be MOST ready to get some minutes against these early non-con teams. Maybe tomorrow he'll get a couple minutes in.

    I'm hoping its just that he started practicing late. Earlier in the summer people were talking about how he had the most upside of any recruit.

    Re: McKnight

    Don't expect much from McKnight this season. He should be redshirting but the staff doesn't have that luxury right now. I wouldn't be surprised if he redshirted next year to be honest with you.

    do you think if (hypothetically) Royce White was eligible, that the McKnight redshirt would have happened?

    Can't guarantee anything but yes, I am sure it would have been discussed at the very least.

    The games count now... Practice happens during practice and during the last 2 minutes in a 30 point blow out....

    Re: McKnight

    Early non-con games against the Northern Arizona's of the world are nothing more than a scrimmage that counts on your record. It's a good time to get everybody in the game, if you ask me.

    I do, of course, trust CFH; I apparently just had some slightly inflated expectations for McKnight.

    I didn't expect much from him, but I DID expect all nine of our available players to see at least two minutes of PT in these early non-cons.

    I think you're underestimating a team like NAU. I'm sure we'll have some easier opponents on our non-conference schedule where CFH can clear the bench, but NAU isn't one of those games.

    So, do you feel entitle to that?
    Maybe you should just wait and see
    what Fred does to get his team ready
    for the season.
