It's weird how these narratives take hold--suddenly, among a large group of followers Caris was not good last year, and now the narrative is being further embroidered with the notion that Beilein somehow failed him. It IS true, I think, that the offense was not operating with a high degree of efficiency yet at that stage, when he went down. . . There was some of the standing around that people have been saying we had this year, which in fact I haven't seen.
This is not directed at Guestavo, btw--I'm talking about the general trend of Caris conversations, including at mgoblog.
