    Re: Taggart article

    I am not real impressed with his play. He is surrounded by stars allowing him to catch a little reflection from the spotlight. I don't think he would survive as a 'goto' guy at any school in D1.

    I'll second that. He still doesnt impress me. I think if he would have stayed here, he would have half-butted it.

    Re: Taggart article

    He didn't put up any effort while he was here. He seemed way overatted out of high school. And ill agree with keepngoal that he is surrounded by alot of really good players who make him look better than he really is.

    Re: Taggart article

    I wonder if Calipari lets him swear? Wasn't that one reason he left, because Mac said he doesn't work that way?

    The big thing he told Mac was that he didn't want to work as hard as Mac wanted him too...specifically, defensively.

    Honestly, who says that to a coach and expects to be patted on the back for it.

    I think that pretty much highlights why they didn't click...although it looks bad; long term it was probably a good thing that most of the players left during the coaching change. There was some potential cancer among them.

    I was just curious to see what Memphis has coming back as far as big men. Dozier is a junior and they have over 580 pounds in two sophomore posts (Pierre Niles 6-8 310, Hashim Bailey 6-10 273). If anything Taggart may be well bruised.

    Re: Taggart article

    "Taggart is one of the bigger reasons we are where we are today," Memphis coach John Calipari said. Straight from the article. I have also heard them say on the broadcasts that Calipari thinks Taggart is going to be a special player at Memphis. I guess you all can continue to knock this kid but his coach (who has coached two different schools into the Final Four) seems to think is an OK player.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    Re: Taggart article

    I remember when he was here there was a long stretch where he had 0 assists. Does anyone recall how many games that was or was it the whole year?

    I hope Taggart proves me wrong. But I have yet to see a coach (outside of Knight) down play a player to the press that is on his team. Consider the source, I guess.

    Otherwise those that still see Taggart as a great player with great potential as of right now, probably want ed WM to still be our coach.

    I agree, coaches typically say nice things about their players in public.

    However, the fact remains that he is the 6th man and a key contributor on a team that is in the Final 4 with a legitimate chance to win it all. I think that might qualify him as being a pretty decent player. Memphis is a pretty stellar program right now...over 100 wins in the last 3 years with 2 Elite 8s and 1 Final 4. You all can keep knocking the kid but I really think it looks petty and foolish to do so.
