i AM NOT A FAN OF BLOGS AND THESE PLAYERS YACKING AWAY. I LIKE AO, BUT IF YOU ARE LOOKING AT VERSATILITY AS A TEAM CONCEPT AS WELL AS PLAYERS THAT FEED WELL OFF EACH OTHER WITH THEIR SKILL SETS, TO AND AD WORK WELL IN THE UCONN SCHEME. EGOS MAKE IT HARD FOR THESE GUYS TO ACCEPT CHANGE THAT DOESN'T ALWAYS INCLUDE THEM, EVEN THOUGH IT MAY BE BEST FOR THE TEAM. FORGET THE TWEETS AO AND PLAY BALL.

Wow, Eamonn Brennan must be struggling to find stuff to write about. Alex will be fine.

ESPN has been a garbage can filled with rubbish for a good part of this season.

Lots of inaccuracies, but he did get some stuff right. Alex needs to show up effort wise and at times make 3 foot shots. We have options now with AD who is improving every game. He's a big component for us especially on defense so we need what he brings but I just don't know if it's a motivation issue or a lack of skills issue.

"if there's one thing we know about Calhoun in his career, it's that he has no qualms benching a veteran stalwart to make room for impressive new talent."
----------------------------

I'm trying to think of when was the last time this happened?

anyone?

calling AO a veteran stalwart is insulting. he'll be fighting TO for minutes in the long run anyway, and im confident he'll get his fire (and swagger) back.

Do we count starting Kemba over Beverly as benching a veteran for younger talent? :p

Could this dope be a Syracuse grad looking to deflect attention away from the bordello that is the cuse program?

He must be talking about senior night in '95 when he let Boo Willingham start and play the first minute with Travis Knight then coming off the bench.

Brennan writing, "If there's one thing we know about Calhoun in his career, it's that he has no qualms benching a veteran stalwart to make room for impressive new talent," is a misinterpretation of the situation. Oriakhi was a starter at the four last year, not the five. Drummond is replacing Chuck in the starting rotation, while Olander is replacing Oriakhi. Olander's been impressive so far, but it's inaccurate to describe him as "impressive new talent" (I think the description was meant for Drummond). His talent is not more impressive than Oriakhi's and AO's benching isn't anything other than a message for him to start playing to his potential.

Rash isn't the only example. Murray Williams and/or Lyman DePriest went to the bench when Scott Burrell and Nadav Henefeld came in. Brian Fair went to the bench when Doron came in. Eric Hayward started with the Marshalls, then became a bench player as Travis Knight developed. Tony Robertson became a bench player his senior year after Ben Gordon developed. Rashad Anderson went to the bench when Rudy came in. Sometimes, he has allowed the veteran to start while the new guy has played starter minutes off the bench (Chris Smith and Phil Gamble, Ricky Moore and Rudy Johnson, Kemba and Craig Austrie, Ray Allen and Eric Hayward, Ben Gordon and Tony Robertson during Ben's freshman year).
