    What kinda voodoo magic can ANY coach do, when his 2 ALL conference guys don't perform like ALL conference guys? Throw in the curious case of Nate Johnson.....it gets really weird, no?

I like Paul, but he’s been one of the most frustrating players that’s played for x for me. I expected a much higher ceiling coming in as a top 35 recruit
    Maybe we now know why after 4 years, it's time to move on. I think Paul has been a warrior and a great representative of Xavier. He has given a lot to this program and I'm thankful, but playing 5 years at one school is a long time. He is who he is. I was expecting him to have a big year, but he's not playing like a 5th year all-conference player. Maybe he'll find some magic down the stretch.

    With Johnson, I believe opponents cover him and don't let him get many free looks. Now Kunkel gets better looks because he is not swarmed by defenders.

    Kunkel is in constant motion and moves way better off the ball than Johnson does.

    Johnson doesnt get good looks b/c of this and the fact that we can run plays to get him good open looks either.

    Can Ben Stanley not play? Is his knee or Travis Steele keeping him on the bench?

    Could he not provide some quality minutes when Hunter and Freemantle are playing like headless chickens? Is he really that much worse than those two?

    All this talk about our weakness at forward and there is a big dude right on the bench.

    Did practice points originate with Steele, or is that a carryover from Mack or Miller?

    Golf is a relatively simple game, played by reasonably intelligent people, stupidly.

    Screw practice points--what about GAME points. He was a 20 point scorer, admittedly in a much lesser league, but so was Hanky. Why not give him a few minutes. What has Hunter or Free given us so far that is irreplaceable?
