Wow...what the?!? JB gets Belichick-like when asked about Girard immediately after his opening monlogue:
I noticed, and it reminded me of Parcells with Romo. Wise tactic if you ask me.Wow...what the?!? JB gets Belichick-like when asked about Girard immediately after his opening monlogue. "Can you talk about Girard? How he...", interupts with a curt, "Yeah he was good...(slaps podium rhythmically, then raises voice) Anything else?!".
Would anyone here get that ticked off from that question? Over 13 minutes left and he asks "Anything else?". I haveven't watched beyond that(about 2 minutes in), but wanted to post this to see what others thought.
For anyone wanting a review who doesn't feel like watching a long presser, I will try to contribute:
After the first 4 or so minutes, there isn't much more dramatic. Although it felt like over half the presser addressed the students' angst, JB is staying on the very popular side, which made it rather dull and uninteresting. He did make a point to insult the President toward the end, which I think would excite a good percentage of this board. I haven't followed this story or read more than the first few pages of the 15 page thread yet, so I have no idea what was even written(does anyone? asking seriously), or if it even falls under this blanket term that is so often used lately...
But Boeheim says the students were bitter at him because they thought he didn't support him by misinterpretting his words, and also because they thought he had more power than he has(zero, according to him). I think JB is a bit like a young Skywalker, in that he doesn't realize the power he weilds(or else he just is very humble, and/or doesn't want to admit said power).
I plan to take tomorrow off from this to rest and regroup, so I wanted to get my thoughts and questions out there now.
He was still angry about losing out on Isaiah earlier in the day.
i think everyone knows that, but the question is what is the value add of what jb says in the post game pc, or moreso the way he says itForget what JB said after the game, the quotes from Buddy and Elijah about Girard are the important ones.
“That kid doesn’t fear nothing” “best PG play I’ve seen”.
His teammates seem to have bought in. That’s all that matters.
That will actually be a duel that will be highly anticipated. I agree that Joe won't back down to Tre but the reverse is true as well.If Girard was the PG on the team last year we would have won 5 more games.
I’m sure there will be nights he goes 4-14, but he isn’t going to be the type of kid that gets intimidated by Tre Jones.
His pressers are uncomfortable- it’s like watching your first episode of The Office and waiting for Michael to say something cringeworthy.i think everyone knows that, but the question is what is the value add of what jb says in the post game pc, or moreso the way he says it
What Girard did, and how his teammates respond when he's at PG do raise the excitement level for SU fans.Forget what JB said after the game,
JB has never been at his best in a situation where he feels like his judgment is being questioned.But he's been angry at the press all season. First there was the issue of how many players will be part of the final rotation and his statements that after 44 years he can evaluate players and if you don't like his judgments you can get another coach. Then came the exchange with Brent Axe over whether he has a quick hook. He's twice gone to the "Did you see the game?" well and "we play the players who give us the best chance to win the game." Somebody in the press, (the fans don't bother him as much - he has lower standards for them) questioned his ability to coach or if he should retire, etc. and he's still steaming over it. Somebody "lost faith in him".
