Well I can remember some posters here making the argument that one of Self’s biggest (perceived) failings is he “plays favorites” to win every game in place of giving the (percieved) more “talented” freshmen valuable minutes to learn thru growing pains and mistakes, which then comes to supposedly hurt the team come March.
I don’t have stats here to put this in real context, but it sure feels like Grimes has been given more than ample playing time. Don’t think this is Selfs fault this time.
Is it me, Or does Grimes just not look that althetic?.. (I never looked at his high school hilites for any context) To me he looks more or less average athletically at best, a tad slow, and sluggish more than explosive. Selden ( oft compared to Grimes) as we remember struggled his first year, but to me he always showed athleticism. The potential seemed there.
