Eh. We've seen enough freshman have outstanding seasons at SU to realize the possibilities. Buddy's woes are irrelevant to anything that Girard will experience. Completely different players. Buddy is a jump shooter who needs his form to be almost perfect to be at his best. Buddy is also struggling a little bit with the pace of the game at this level but I have no doubt he will get there. JGIII is a shooter. Period. Off the screen 3, 25 ft 3, stop and pop, fade away and runners. Nothing at all like Buddy. There is no reason that JGIII can't be the next Gmac. He could even be better. As great as Gmac was he left plenty of room for someone to come along and shoot higher percentages than he did.Buddy's shooting woes is an indication that Girard is quite likely to face the same shooting challenges his freshman year. Fan's expectations are typically unrealistic for our freshman receipts.
