As for (#1), I don’t see how Mack gets that time based on what we saw. Keep in mind he left HS 2 years ago. Combine that with DJ, McGusty and potential transfer/recruit, I have trouble seeing how Mack will get the burn.
- The freshman coming in is a better talent so Mack gets passed. McGusty passes him as soon as he is eligible. I'm hoping Mack can give us a solid 8 to 10 minutes per game next year.
- Well, he will be a redshirt junior so if he is in shape he should contribute. Larranaga has a good reput for getting some quality minutes out of late blooming big guys. We need the kid to give us 10 to 15 minutes per game without being a liability on the court. Hard to be optimistic.
As for (#2), my concern is not just how unathletic Miller is but how much better Gak was this past season in his fewer opportunities. In Gak’s first game for us he showed more potential than at any point in the Miller tenure. Keep in mind Gak too was not in shape for this level and had less experience at UM. I think it is quite telling how Miller is redshirtting at this point and it isn’t because of an injury.
On a side note: does anyone have any quote/article from before the season that Miller was going go redshirt?
