Both players were probably given an honest assessment of the PT propects next season.Wow
Did Tad lose the team at the end of the season and now the program after the season??? Seemed like a really close team at the start of the year and now they all cannot wait to all get away!
I think Kountz is spectacular attrition. athletic but a living breathing turnover. I don't know about Dombek because we never saw him play. Watching him in warmups I know he is VERY athletic but I also know he still needs about 40 pounds to keep from getting pushed around like a leaf in the wind. Hope they both go somewhere and do well and that Tad can find someone solid this time.Dombek never played, and Kountz was unplayable. Good attrition.
Whether Bey, Kin and whoever you want to name left the program after last year, there was no way Kountz was going to see the court next year. That dude has regressed like crazy and his attitude sucked down the stretch. He will likely find a niche as a role player at a Big Sky-type school (Hell, maybe DU where he can go 6-23 every year). We got instantly better with Dombek and Kountz leaving. Now, what Tad does with those roster spots likely decides if he is still here in another 2 years.With Gatling gone, there was OT available. Hopefully this means that Barthelemey is as good as projected, rather than Kountz being jaded. Kountz regressed as the year went on while Parquet improved noticeably.
Agreed on Parquet. His play the last couple months was encouraging and he should have earned an expanded role next season.With Gatling gone, there was OT available. Hopefully this means that Barthelemey is as good as projected, rather than Kountz being jaded. Kountz regressed as the year went on while Parquet improved noticeably.
Attrition, whether good or bad has to be judged on what is put in its place, as well as the mood on the team and the way they were playing. Seems like any form of chemistry was dead at the end of the year? If it works out better, then good for us, but the way Tad talks about the players all the time, always seems to take the blame for player development off of Tad and the coaches. Every single player, even Battey and even Kin regressed, so good attrition, as well as chemistry, are all out of wack!!!be honest, Kountz is very good attrition. Stop with the BS
Wright will be back. Especially if we sign a couple of good transfers to ease his mind. So what you likely have next year is:So this is who we think we know will be here next year.
Barthelemy, Parquet, Daniels, Schwarz, Clifford, O'Brien
Need 4 to 6 more. We're hitting both ends of the recruiting spectrum. Kids that leave early for the pros and kids that leave as underclassmen because Tad whiffed.
And here I was down on Luke O'Brien, heck he may be starting next year.
