There’s a certain frustration that we hired both Illinois State assistants in August and McIntosh chose the Ducks in June. He might have chosen them anyway, but boy, a game like tonight, I think it would have helped to have a McIntosh in the rotation.
People have been encouraged by Simmons’ play recently, but, honestly, I’ve been pessimistic. I just don’t have confidence in his decision making or his knowledge of where the ball needs to go. He seems like a guy trying to play fast just to play fast as opposed to a guy in command of the offense.
Wonder how different it would be if we had McIntosh instead of Simmons. On the other hand, I have to guess that Simmons has been crucial in Z’s development, as I imagine he really pushes him in practice.
