Players First

I've just finished reading "Players First" by Calipari, and I think there are quite a bit that Painter can learn from him. No, of course not the cheating part, but really, just show that he cares...

PJ won 3-pt contest title (dunno the level of competition, but we need every available shooter)

The "tweak" doesn't work for Ronnie

If only it is this simple ... "On Monday, you will not shoot one basketball. You will pass. We’re going to run less plays. You will create shots." Sigh.

This is the kind of people we want in our Athletic Department

Too bad he is at Michigan. But from Tom Brady to Desmond Howard to many current Wolverines, a lot of Michigan athletes have given credit to Greg Harden (Associate Athletic Director) for their success. Harden acts like a concellor and he is able to connect with the 18/19 year olds and gave them the tough love message that they need to hear. It's important life lesson that if you are not getting the PT or other issues, running away from the problem (like transferring) or playing the victim role won't help. Now compared that to, ahem, say Nancy Cross whose job is to blame the donors ...

IU (or aO$U) Education is negative value - seriously

To be exact, the Education major at IU (or OSU) brings negative value. So does an Art major at Wisky. Don't let your friends go to IU, unless they have too much money (and time) to waste.

Why I am cautiously optimistic for Bryson at the point

10

Based on the article, it seems like both he and Painter know what his problems are. He needs to make better decisions b/c his bulldog approach doesn't work against B1G defenders. The fact that he takes it as a personal challenge, and that he *WANTS* to be a PG give me optimism that he CAN do it. After all, as Painter said, he doesn't know whether Scott can be a PG, but he does have the ability and a lot of that just depends on him wanting to do it.

A hard look at Purdue defense/offense shooting numbers

- He has turned into an amazing defensive player - He erases a lot of mistakes, that is how good he is in the paint. - He is definitely going to be a great rim protector - You will also have to defend his outside shot and that is something he developed. Is he describing JT or JJ?

Painter thinks our team is in a good place right now

2

While acknowledging we can't let a win camouflage our weakness, Painter sounds optimistic, "It's fun when team starts to play together more and play harder. It helps to sell your point and get them to understand what we have to hang our hat on. Our team is in a good place right now. It's what you want as a coach."
