    Garrett

    So I sat down with the intention of ripping on him, but decided I haven't seen enough games this year to be fair. So I'll ask a question instead.

    Is Garrett as bad as he looked tonight, or did he have an off night. If this were an 8th grade team, I would assume his dad is the coach.

    He did the same thing against KU. I hope McD benches his ***, until he pulls his head out of it.

    Me too. He has hit a wall and is falling back fast. He needs to be pushed. McD HAS to make changes, or its his ***.

    Re: Garrett

    This may not be a popular idea around here, but I think if the reigns were loosened a bit on DG he would play much better. I don't think he is the right player for this system, and I think that when he can display a bit of creativity and play within his game he is ok. I would love to see him develop his jumper a bit over the summer, get a little stronger, and take over the 2 spot when Colvin takes over the point. He is not meant to set up an offense and make good decisions, but rather is a slasher, playmaker and hopefully can develop into a shooter.

    He makes plays alright, they just go the other way.

    Colvin is NOT, repeat, NOT going to be the cure all for this team. We are hanging all our hopes on a true freshman point guard?! He might start but that doesn't mean he won't get picked clean often.

    Can I ask why everyone seems to think he will come in day 1 and be the next Steve Nash? Because some website has him at #92 or whatever? Yeah, because they've NEVER been wrong....

    That said, I think DG needs to sit the bench. Seriously, how much worse can Buckley be if he can't even sniff playing time right now?


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    Is Buckley that bad where he can't start stealing some of his minutes?

    Re: Garrett

    I still support DG, but he really needs to be benched for the start of the game saturday. He has hit a run of poor form, and inconsistant and forcing
    crap. He needs to pull his head out.

    Re: Garrett

    At the very least he should have his "last guy announced during pregame" status revoked.

    Re: Garrett

    Put Petey and Buckley at point until he gets his act together. Let him figure out if he wants to play.

    Re: Garrett

    I agree. Give DG a GOOOOOOOOD benching. One of two things will happen.

    1. He'll pull his head out of his ***, step up, and start playing with some intensity to keep from losing his position

    OR

    2. DB will seize the opportunity and be the player we all hope he can be.
