Not defending Stoglin's play - he deserved to get benched. But if I had to guess at why he played like he did yesterday I'd say he probably knew he had to have a great game for us to win and, like all scorers, he was trying to shoot himself into getting hot. The kid is a total warrior that hates losing more than anyone else on that court. I just don't believe he was jacking shots just to be selfish. He just couldn't get himself into a rhythm and really hurt his team in the process.
It is easy to see why Stoglin gets fruserated when he is out there...I'd take my chances with the ball in his hands, even if the shot is a little wild...Stoglin would be a different player if he was surrounded by better talent...
Fuck off. The truth is the truth dickhead. Watch and see.
he's a selfish, Bobby Sura gunning motherfucker who ought to score 28 a game shooting as much as he does. Not everyone in the program or fanbase thinks he's the savior. Turge will straighten it out and a bunch of people experiencing groupthink on here are in for the shock of their lives when he gets suspended.
why does it take this to get the rare cross-race comparison
That fckng bastard Bobby Sura!
Sure he's a selfish gunner. But really what other options does he have to pass to? I'd rather see Stogs take an offbalance 3 than Faust or Parker an uncontested 3 because it's still got a better chance of going in.
But this Stogs/Turge thing is hardly new, it's been brewing all year. And it may get ugly and could very well end up bing DOB all over again. With all that said I can't blame the coach for wanting his players to do what they are supposed to do.
Stogs is the BEST player on a pretty bad team. I love the fact that he was pissed that he was benched I WANT our best player to want to be in the game knowing he could help. Gary Clark comes to mind with the blow ups he used to have with Gibbs on the sidelines. I also live the fact that Stogs came back on Twitter and owned his tweet and said it was his fault - The kid is what 19 - 20 y/o? How about we give him a break and SUPPORT our TERPS!!!
If Stogs switches into Gilchrist mode after this year then I am buying a fucking Missouri hat.
Heard turge on with bob haney this afternoon, he said it is all good now. Everyone was frustrated, cares about the right things and it the consequences of acting out like that have been clearly laid out and everyone understands what is expected.
