    If We Are Going To Be Young

    Then be young and play the young guys. If we are going to lean on that as a crutch, at least get the guys some PT so there isn't an excuse next year. I appreciate what Petey has done but him, Thompson, and Haluska (maybe even JVB) should be taking a back seat to the young guys. Buckley had one minute, Eik 9, Hamilton 12, Boozer 12, Man 0...

    Re: If We Are Going To Be Young

    Fair enough...I'm all for earning playing time in practice...but if you continually don't show up for games, there needs to be consequences...experience couldn't hurt our youngsters, and maybe it'd even be motivation to practice better.

    Re: If We Are Going To Be Young

    Good point. This Saturday the action moves inside the lane so CB will have have his hands full so someone will have to hit a jump shot. If not, expect to lose very big at home.

    I'm just giving you crap.

    I think you're right to a certain extent in that it's time for Buck, Eik, Booz, and Ham to get more minutes.

    But we are playing young guys...DG, CB, Lucca get the bulk of minutes, aside from Petey.

    Re: If We Are Going To Be Young

    If Lucca's not completely healthy (and it's clear we aren't a postseason team)....why not let the guy get healthy?

    I actually like the thought of Lucca coming off the bench.

    Would you rather have him get healthy or miss out on the experience he will gain the rest of the season? He has a lot he needs to work on but some of these areas he's struggling in might be because of the injury.

    Re: If We Are Going To Be Young

    I'd just like to get a syringe of Bryan Petersen and inject it into every player. As soon as you step on the floor, you bust your ***, and if you screw up, you screw up giving your hardest effort. It wouldn't hurt so bad if we were making aggressive mistakes, but we're so damn tentative. Brackins said it about perfect in the post game interview. He was asked about the night, and just plain said we need guys who want to take a shot. These guys miss 2 shots and their confidence is gone. Craig has the shooter's mentality now. Last year if he missed a couple, it went to his head. This year, he keeps firing away.

    Re: If We Are Going To Be Young

    If a person cannot score nine points in a game, he can be subbed. That means one person is indispensable at this point.

    I wonder why Greg hojds his timeouts so long? The game might be over before you use them. Maybe he does not know what to tell his players after a nine minute scoring drought?

    I think he is...he said he was 95% a couple of weeks ago in a press conference.
