    thoughts on the first three seasons for mcdermott...

    It is hard to believe that mcdermott has not had a player play three seasons for him. The only player that has been with the program for three seasons is Alex Thompson and he sat out the first season. I thought it was a terrible decision to bring him into the fold.

    This team will never excel until we get a two that can create and be quick enough to get his own shot. Plus we need an athletic three. I think we are about the only team with a white two guard.


    The best thing that could happen to this program is for Haluska,
    Peterson, and Thompson to graduate. None of them have any business playing in the big 12. Diante Garrett is a year away. Brackins is the only legit big 12 starter we have and he is top five player in the league. Garrett will be a legit big 12 guard after one more offseason of improvement.

    I am optimistic about Hamilton, Boozer, Eik, and Buckley. I think the all look to be good young players. I think that Boozer should be starting over Peterson in my opionion. Hopefully next season a new comers will be able to help us, we need a suprise starter.

    I am frustrated that this team can't dig down deep to beat an average k-state team at home.

    Re: thoughts on the first three seasons for mcdermott...

    I just wanna give the guy 4 years. If next year is the same song and dance, he should be shown the door.

    I agree about the addition by subtraction thing that will occur next year with the out-going seniors and incoming guys. We upgrade drastically in talent and athletic ability, two things haunting this team.

    Re: thoughts on the first three seasons for mcdermott...

    Over and over I have to remind myself I would give him 3-4 years. Yes I get nervous with the way things look... but hope still holds out. After all I'm a cubs fan too.

    Race has nothing to do with it. Larry Bird, Steve Nash, John Stockton, Jeff Hornacek, Dirk Nowitzki, Detlef Shrempf, Steve Kerr, Jerry West, Bill Walton, John Paxton, Luke Longley come to mind to name a few. I know not all of them are guards, but just making a point.

    Did you really just include Luc Longley in the same sentence with Larry Bird, Jerry West, Bill Walton and John Stockton?

    Cmon.

    it is very rare to have great white two guards hoiberg and hornacek are a dime a dozen. How about willie warren, i would take a guy with 3/4 of his ablility. Its not about race but it is at the same time. I want a Willoughby(sp.)

    I'm sure Gene Chizik feels that Greg McDermott is an absolute success.

    I'm going to wait until the season is over before I judge him on his first three years.

    Re: thoughts on the first three seasons for mcdermott...

    Hornacek and Kerr are the only two guards that you listed. Hornacek is the only starter at the 2 position that you listed.
