Shaka Smart, Dominoes, & SotG
« on: November 21, 2021, 12:38:41 PM »
Have you noticed that Shaka has been naming the "Domino" of the game? Seems like the guys are buying into it.

Quote
Smart constantly preaches the importance of having a positive impact. The idea is that if a player does the right things, his attitude will have a domino effect carrying over to each of his teammates.

“Each and every person in this program is a domino,” Clemson transfer Olivier-Maxence Prosper said as he discussed Smart’s message. “You’re either a positive domino, which means you’re doing your best to help this team win. Or you’re a negative domino, which means you’re bringing the team down. We’re trying to eliminate the negative dominoes and have everybody be a positive domino.”

Time to rename SotG?

It’s just great to see other outlets covering our team. From national writers to non partisan local guys like Charleston. We weren’t even an afterthought for the last few years.

Going to his profile and reading his posts is quite entertaining.  Here is my favorite:

Kam Jones is brutal.
Have some patience, FFS.

Let him be.  If Shaka falters, he gets to be the 'I told you so' guy.
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

I laughed.

Laughed again!

If Shaka falters, he gets to be the 'I told you so' guy.

And then you can be the other "I told you so" guy for telling us this!

Shaka also refers to being an energy giver or an energy taker, similar to Buzz he seems full of fun imagery to analyze the game and his players.

I take time to categorize both the people and the tasks in my life like this. It helps me decide where I want to focus my energies in the long run, or at least be aware that I will have to tackle a draining activity/person that day to get my mind right for it. It has helped me a lot.

A golden opportunity for Marquette to pursue Dominoes as a team sponsor and also to give MU athletes a shot at some NIL cash.

Who is this NIL, and is it too late to execute him or her?

I was really hoping for a Colin Robinson mention with the energy takers.
