Because that was a problem before.

That was exactly my thought when I read your subject line.



Have some patience, FFS.

I really liked this

John:  “At the end of the day, it’s not my decision, whatever coach sees best.  If he sees me playing all 5, then I’ll play all five.  If he sees me playing the 4, I can do that, too.  Whatever helps our team, I think we’re all willing to do so.  I know we’re all in it for the same reasons.  We want to win.  Whatever coach draws up, we’re going to follow it.”

A common theme from the players who have been interviewed by Dodds.  Jamal, Ed, and now Theo have all said some version of this.

Ya.. Definitely sounds like comments from players on a team with a poor leader for a head coach

Yup. Seems like the guys who bought in are still here and those who didn’t wrote a letter and left.

I'm happy the players are all on the same page. I'd expect that in July. I'll be even happier if a real journalist can write similar stuff in February/March.

Can't write an article in February/March when it's July.

On his way to becoming another Faisal or Harris? FT's are there already.
What, you still throwing up bricks? What is this, a Masons convention? Clank, clank! I need, like, a welding torch to play in this league! I got an idea, let's just stop right now and gather up all these bricks and let's build a shelter for the homeless so maybe your mother will have a place to stay

Who is this Faisal guy everybody mentions with Theo? Was he just as strong if not stronger?

Faisal Abraham was an enforcer.  A bad man.  A banger.  A terrible free throw shooter.  Theo is bigger.

Great shot blocker too. Body fat percentage of maybe 2%. Pure muscle.

Also called for a BS foul on Sean Smith with .7 seconds left in the 1995 NIT final.

Here's Faisal blocking a shot as a senior during the 1997 Conference USA tournament. Both Faisal and Mike Bargen (lower right) were listed at 6-7 on the roster. But Bargen's arms look like pipe cleaners in comparison.
"Let's get a green drink!" Famous last words

When he wasn't in the weight room at the Old Gym he was lifting in the Rec Center. 

Mike Deane had a very amusing nickname for Faisel too.
