[quote="FanofPSU"]However, the minute distribution of Babb v. Woodyard is sending the message: "transfer if you want playing time in college basketball."[/quote]
Are you still in school? Take logic. This is a false dichotomy.
Are you senile? Transfer to a mid or low-major program like Loyola, MD (near his hometown) where the talent level is lower and he’ll get minutes.
My point is that is he wants to play meaningful college basketball minutes, he needs to go to a lower tier school.
I may be senile, I believe that is a difficult thing for one to self-assess.
However, I will help you out a bit. Other options:
- Practice better
- Work harder
- Go to class
- Have a better attitude
And you will play more.
All those kinds of things could be the message being sent by not playing. I am not saying Cam needs to do any of those things. I know nothing about his situation.
All I am doing is calling out the stupidity lack of logic in saying that not playing in a few games is a message to transfer.
Its been more than a few games - look at his minutes against quality competition vs minutes in crappy OOC games. But let’s see how it plays out the rest of this year and next.
I think you are still missing the point, which is:
==>> Not Playing Does Not Necessarily Equal “A Message To Transfer”
Nothing before now, now, or in the future changes that.
We are talking into the wind. You are missing my main point - if Cam ain’t playing this year, he sure as heck ain’t playing next year when Buie comes into town. Its not about being told to transfer, its about getting an opportunity to play/start college basketball. I don’t think its going to happen for Cam at PSU, and if he wants to play college basketball, he’s got to consider the future, and (barring injuries or a dramatic skill level change) the only option is transferring.
Buie, if he’s anywhere near as good as advertised, is getting 25 min a game in the backcourt. He’s a top 100 prospect.
Make up your mind. In your first post you said “ED must be sending a message to Cam that he should transfer”, now you are saying “Its not about being told to transfer”. ???
You should be better than this. If you read the entirety of my posts (instead of taking distorted tidbits) you would see that my point is that ED is sending an implied message through playing time distribution. Many different ways and methods to send a message…
Better than what? I haven’t a clue what has you so upset with me. You have failed miserably in trying to get your message across.
I read the entirety of your posts and I still had no clue what the message was that you were trying to convey.
Your first message suggests that you think that ED’s telling the kid to transfer. I thought that was clear. But your later message says “it’s not about being told to transfer”, which at least to me suggests you are backing off from your original position. If you weren’t backing off then wtf were you saying.
Now your most recent post seems to be reverting to (or reinforcing) your original position that you think that ED wants Cam to transfer.
If that’s true, then I must point you directly to Tim’s post where he says
“==>> Not Playing Does Not Necessarily Equal ‘A Message To Transfer’”.
Please explain how you can dismiss all of the other potential messages that DeChellis may be trying to send to Woodyard?
