The article on Kipper didn't make me angry, it just seemed like BS to me. What about that he learned the offense in the off-season or that he is going to listen to coach and trust his judgement? Of course, I hope to eat crow all season as Kipper comes out but I highly doubt it and the article...
Honestly trying not to vomit after reading Kipper's piece today. I honestly don't think he even gets it. I know we shouldn't put down our own but this specific player drives me and coach Underwood nuts.
I will always remember an interview he did where he said that all that mattered to his kid was that Rob and his mother believed in him. If your kid believes you believe in him/her the sky is the limit.
I would worry more if the team wasn't complete. But this team on paper is complete.
We no longer after Cockburn have a glaring hole. Until Ayo moves forward this position at Illinois is hard to sell for a highly ranked PG. You always have to recruit in this world of transfers, early draft...
I am surprised Samba stayed. At times when he needed to play, Underwood still wouldn't give him minutes. I thought highly of him in his limited tick and I wonder how he improves while being with Fletch and training year round. If he is committed I think we still may have something here.
I don't think Underwood's style was ever going to beat Beilein. They were so well coached at Michigan, great spacing, great roster construction. Beilein did a great job there, I am more than ready for Michigan to get knocked off their perch.
Watching the tournament you can tell that we not only need a Kofi but we need 6'9'' power forward who is athletic and aggressive. I think he was trying to get that with Higgs. Underwood knows what he needs to recruit to fix this team
