Also, the coach of Thursday’s opponent, Bo Ryan of Wisconsin:
Can no one ask him about Ratliff's playing time?
That is the first time I have seen this teleconference audio on this site and would be a loyal listener if it was a weekly thing.
When available, we'll post it up.
I don't understand the lack of playing time unless Coach Sampson is not happy with A.J. Last year his contribution was key to several games the Hoosier's won. He has looked rusty and at times uncertain as to shoot or pass.
There is no doubt in my mind as we approach the toughest part of our schedule that we need the leadership of AJ Ratliff. I don't know how things are going to happen but his experience will be vital in the course of our remaining season.
Although I like the teleconference thing….it seems KS friends and family were asking questions given the softballs thrown at him……
What is the number where I can call in on the next one……Here is an excerpt*Umm coach thanks first for autographing my sons picture for his room….now why they hell no screens for any damn body on the team?
*Hey coach next question…..I noticed DT lost a lot of weight and was going to be a compliment for DJ, was this a waste of his time? He is another player that could use a block to block screen to help him gets some shots and points.
* Well since no one else wants to ask a decent question here I go again coach….I noticed during pre season when we played teams that increased our blood sugar count we were putting up 90-100 pts….now we have ran less and a fastbreak has become a thing of the past. Do you plan on implementing the 4 corners offense anytime soon?
* Finally question coach……Coach have you secured a location for the victory parade when Mike White makes a lay up. It seems he is getting close to making his first one as the ball is actually touching the back board these days. Or coach, if at all possible , my mom can't make a lay up either so she would like to start for you against Wisconsin.
(I really like our team, oddly enough I love KS as a coach, just pissed that these things aren't even on the radar. I don't claim to know ALL there is to know about bbal but I have played at the collegiate level and coached at the H.S. varsity level I know enough.)
