Underperformed wasn't the correct word I suppose. I'm certainly not trying to blame Trent. But he hasn't followed the typical arc of a guy who had such a phenomenal freshman year.He hasn't underperformed at all. As a FR, we had very little firepower, so we needed him to score. Since then the talent around him has gotten much better. And he, being a smart team player, has learned to defer more.
I'd also say that "deferring" isn't necessarily what we want we better players are added. We just want to get that much better. The career paths of both Trent and Giorgi tell me that BU needs to do a better job of melding old and new talent to maximize both.
