It has been and continues to be my opinion that Goose starting and playing major starter minutes is not a recipe for a team with legit NCAA aspirations. His offensive game is just too limited and while a really good defender, he isn't Tony Dobbins level, that to me he would need to be to justify him being our starter at the 2.
That said, I do agree with Trap, that until a players comes up and seizes the starting position from him, he will remain our starter. Mooney will need overwhelming evidence to make a switch. To date, neither Dji or Roche has provided him that.
You should put an asterisk every time u say that like...
*except the two seasons Goose has already done it for NCAA teams. Double asterisk 19-20'.
It just reads funny to me otherwise. I think u mean this year only with this specific set of players right? We'll see but I think we end up scoring wise probably quite similar to last year fwiw. But sure come take his minutes. If we had someone who could I'd get behind. I really don't see who can do things better athletically, turnovers, defense, etc. Roche can shoot it a hell of lot better for sure, but I'm not seeing major 25+ mpg for him right now. Little more specialist. Maybe next year. But only 3 games in, still a lot to play out.
