We already did. A redshirt is a redshirt - doesn't matter if it's "medical" or not to the NCAA until you apply for an extra year. If he doesn't play this year, then he can legitimately argue he missed two full seasons for medical reasons, and probably be granted another year.At what point do we medically red shirt him?
Kind of unfortunate as he had stretches especially at the end of last season of really good play scoring around the basket, rebounding and blocking shots. I was really hoping he would bounce back from this injury faster and be the 4 man we need to add some versatility in our lineups.I think we can scratch the idea of ever expecting anything from Diarra, if it happens it happens but certainly nothing should be expected. Hopefully he can somehow get over the injuries and have a successful career but it's chronic stuff.
Wilson at the 4? They’ll wipe the floor with him.Yikes, he might not even help up this year. I thought he was going to be here in early to mid-December. I wonder if he had a set back. I think we will be seeing Wilson and Polley at the 4 a lot considering how bad our bigs are.
Maybe because he has already been used there in 2 games in a row. Substituted for Polley. Yes on defense against big guys he will be at a disadvantage but he is the best athlete on the floor so he can hang with most people there. Polley will get the most minutes there but Wilson will get some there since our 4’s all suck.diarra will be back at some point... this shouldn't open the door to akok playing in the spring. that would mean seven guys are competing for minutes at the 4 and 5 spots..
the program is best served by keeping akok hidden in the weight room, away from nba scouts until next fall.
PS- i dont understand the sid playing PF talk at all. he's only 177 lbs! that's less than everyone on the roster except vital who's barely six feet tall!
