    Hopefully he retires in the next few years!

    Terrible shooting will not win games but I wouldn't read too much into that. They had not worked much on offense but with a few less missed layups (yes layups) and it's a W. It's very bc early fo r a scrimmage but the defense was causing trouble and rebounding was great.
    Expect significant progress by the next outing.

    I went and watched a decent portion of the game. The offense wasn't that bad - they just didnt make many shots. We will probably live and die by that this year because I dont think we are athletic enough yet to get many free points. Going to have an iffy front court and they absolutely have to stay out of foul trouble.

    They'll be fun to watch and will be well coached, but we need next year's recruiting class to get here.

    I think Kiir will ramp up to D1 speed pretty quick and contribute. That should lessen that concern.
    But you (May have) heard Wade going on about cleaning up the details in his presser. It's hi s thing and it works. The happier he is with progress there makes inordinately large contributions to success. It's that way with all top flight teams and always has been.

    Pretty refreshing to hear his dissatisfaction. He said he isn’t blowing smoke and so far I believe him.

    This is what I want to hear a coach say. Probably the most glaring statement was "we knew the pitfalls, they just had to see it". That's leadership folks. That is directly addressing the standard and placing the execution on the players. Not a finger pointing session, just an early reality check. I like it, a lot

    Classic Wade.
    And players that want to excel want that.
    And players that don't, whine about it and never get better.
    And no matter how much better they get, there is always room for improvement.
    That's Will.

    No blowing of smoke, ever.
