How's everybody doing? Plenty to talk about this week. Who wants to get things started?
Hey Pride, very good. Basketball is in the air. Very excited for tomorrow's game.
I was at today's practice, and I have to say I was impressed. There was really good energy. I think the guys are happy with the move. Cain is a very passionate, hands-on coach, so hopefully he can get the most out of the resources they have.
Can't argue with that. Being 23, I still have a while before I have to pick family over basketball.
I wasn't surprised that it happened, but the timing didi catch me off guard. I thought they'd wait until the end of the season. It does show a sense of urgency from Christensen though. I think he knows that if the Pokes don't reach a bowl game, he could be gone.
I like Cain as the pick for interim d-coordinator. He's basically the opposite of Tormey. Young, can relate to the kids, a definite motivator. He'll bring energy to say the least.
He's never been a coordinator on any level, but right now it's not about making big changes. All he needs to do is get the most out of his players and avoid big plays.
Lots of question marks on starters. My guess is Grabau, Adams, Sobey, Cooke and Nance. I think Washington, Hankerson and Granberry will also play a lot.
Haldorson and Sellers have also come on in the offseason. They'll need to add a boost on the interior.
I think that's a good move. He still said he thought the guys were thinking too much. He wants to make things easy and let them play fast. With a team that doesn't have a strong understanding of schemes, it's best not to add more to the mix.
