OK three intersquad scrimmages have been completed and only one, the Bobcat women, have yet to hold theirs. Previously this week I made it to the three that were held and thought I would let you guy’s know what my thoughts were.
Now when I go to an intersquad scrimmage I usually go to check out new players and see what if anything the returnees have added to their games. The format that I am going to use is to just comment on thing that I observed that I did not know or that surprised me about the player. For the most part I am not going to repeat what I have already written elsewhere in this blog. The other thing to keep in mind is that sometimes a player will have a bad night or they may play well above their pay rate in the scrimmages. These are impressions from a single night of basketball, actual results may vary.
I saw something very positive from every player on the court. There are in my opinion the top tier of 8-9 players, but after that there is a log jamb of the next 6-7 players who are all look like they could contribute next year. Redshirting is going to get interesting for Huse. The guy’s I thought might be candidates for a redshirt certainly are no longer sure things.
Did not play:
Casey Trujeque – Casey was ill and was suited up but did not play. Saw him after the game and he did not look well at all.
Ryan McIntyre- Also sat on the bench dressed up but did not play. I am not sure if he was injured or ill.
Steven Davis – Was not at the scrimmage, but did show up afterwards
Erik Rush – Technically Erik was on the floor for a few minutes but was struggling with an ankle problem and Huse pulled him.
