I think it was because when he got his chance, he played pretty poorly.  Just a teammate lifting up another.
So he was upset about his playing time.

Upset about trying his absolute hardest and that his efforts, ultimately, were a disappointment. It's not easy letting down your teammates.

I'm sure that feeling is familiar to a lot of people on MUScoop. Especially those still living in their parent's basements.

Upset Jop gets more playing time.  Has Shaka lost this team?!?!?
Ramsey head thoroughly up his ass.

One of the many things that has impressed me about Coach Smart in his 1 2/3 seasons at MU is how he has empowered his freshmen to play fearlessly.   
    One of the great scoop traditions is to complain and debate about playing time for freshmen.  Jimmy Butler is a wasted scholarship, play magic Dawson more,
Dawson Garcia less,  Theo was playing his best ball, why sit him after 12 straight good minutes.    This is a continuation of that tradition.
    I like Ben.   I think he is very talented and will be very good.   I would like him to play a few more minutes just so that Oso doesn't wear out.  I hope this week gave him an opportunity to get ready to contribute more down the stretch.  I think MU will need him.

You could have shortened the sentence with the bolded and it would have been much stronger.  ;D

Agree that Shaka gives the freshmen a chance and hope that Ben can "contribute more down the stretch". I just think it needs to be in games where we do not have to worry about every point. I like Ben and he needs time on the court to show what he can do, but he scares me in games with tough opponents.

You're not wrong.


But I do feel offended.  ::)

I'm simply not very concerned about Oso wearing out. There are just so many long time-outs in college games, especially in the last few minutes of close games (exactly when one would think players would "wear out"). Guys are getting far more rest during that stretch of any typical close game than they're playing basketball.

I'll be pretty surprised if Gold gets what either of us would call "significant" playing time in most non-blowout games for the rest of the season, so I guess we'll get an opportunity to see which of us is right on this one.
