"Expert" weighing in. Connor brings good defense, passing, and rebounding. However, when Connor is shooting 18% from 3 point range, he shouldn't be playing much in my "expert" opinion. It was absolutely killing our offensive flow and Keegan's inside game when defenses were so easily collapsing down not having to guard CMac.Of course the coaches know the players and what they have way better than we fans do.
The coaches have been doing this, and ONLY THIS, all their professional lives. They have forgotten more about basketball than any of us know about basketball. Nevertheless, the "experts" on here are constantly questioning why Fran starts "so and so" and why "so and so" only gets so many minutes.
Anyone who knows anything about basketball knows Connor has always brought a lot to the table. Yet the "experts" on here wanted Connor benched. And now he's hitting the 3 ball, which makes him an even bigger threat. Now the "experts" want him to play and to come back for one more season!!!
When all the "experts" on here wanted JBo benched, Fran, the actual expert, did the opposite by moving JBo back to Point Guard; this was the turning point of the season, of course. And now Fran is being mentioned as a B1G Coach of the Year candidate.
Something clicked and he's hitting threes. While he's doing that, he deserves good minutes and it makes this team WAY better. /expert out
