DJ Not Starting Has Potential Problems
« on: November 25, 2020, 10:06:00 PM »
DJ not starting has potential for big problems. Kid obviously has major elite capabilities and should not be on the line behind McEwen.

Kid already quit one team over playing time issues. Mental Health is code word for I am not a starter.

Not saying there is a problem with this now.  But at some point we are looking at another Kobe King situation. Or DJ taking his free year and going to a coach with more common sense .

This is the kind of mentality that we need to get rid of as a culture.  Who are you say he was lying about mental health issues? The kid had every right to put his mental health first.  I'm glad that the younger generation is starting to recognize that.

You are a teacher and around kids that play sports . They get worked up about this stuff . There were  some initial tweets from Carton  at the time complaining he did not fit into Ohio States plans .  That means he was pissed  off about his role.

I disagree. It’s amazing. This is the type of deep cut analysis that would definitely warrant a Pulitzer.

Can we, as a MU Scoop community, nominate?

I forgot. Herman was along with Quentin Grimes. Experienced his official visit to Marquette with him. Guessing Herman was also with DJ at Ohio State and knows the ins and outs of what happened.

What an idiot. This crap has no place on a Marquette basketball forum.

I'm also around students who email me to say "I'm going through a rough patch right now, sorry I wasnt paying attention in class."  If a kid tells me their mental health is suffering, I'm going to go out of my way to accommodate them, because mental health is that important.  Kids can't learn if their heads are in the wrong place.  I don't know much about sports psychology, but I gotta imagine it's the same.

Could angry tweets have been a reflection of depression or anxiety? Absolutely.  Assuming that someone is lying about their mental health issues is the pinnacle of not giving a crap about other people.

This has more to do with Herman trying to find a knock on Wojo, and bring attention upon himself.

This is 180 degrees wrong.

Carton did not sit out a year like ”regular” transfers and get a year to get used to the new system.  He is better compared to a grad transfers like Chartony, Katin and/or Carlino.  By this metric, he looks good.  I remember how ”lost” those grad transfers looked in first few games.  Carton looks a lot more comfortable.

Let's see where Carton is in 10 games.

Remember Nick Noskowiak . Said he had mental health issues which really was an excuse for other problems. I was ripped on this board for pointing that out early before it all came out . Then people apologized

What I am saying is DJ is an extremely elite player . I would hate to see Wojo inadvertently throw literally one of the top players in the Big East under the bus .

Carton is the kid who leads us places because he has the speed to compete with real teams . Got to keep him happy.

You don’t think a 16 year old kid having behavioral issues could possibly have mental health issues?

This is humorous because many wanted Wojo to throw Markus Howard under the bus and change his game [pass more] when he was here
