I really hope Colvin starts getting more minutes. His suspension is over so we can stop ******** about that. An inexperienced Colvin is no worse than an experienced DG. We might as well start getting him as many minutes as possible.
They all do things well, I just wish we didn't have to rely on them so much to create things on the offensive end. They are fine handling the ball up the court, but the decision making and finishing ability once they penetrate into the lane is lacking.
Where is he at on the turnover rate? Watch him play defense for a little while. When they were trapping at the end of the game he gets pushed around like hes not even there. There is more to playing point guard then assist to turnover ratio.
DG is not going to get better. I have watch 2 1/2 years of the same thing over and over. Buckley and Colvin have a chance to improve with more PT. Unfortunately DG will be the starter for 1 1/2 more years.
Agree. I was not impressed with DG early on when he was a freshman. McDermott has effectively banked his ISU career on Garrett as the point guard and it has been a failure and I do not see it improving. Mac has not had a plan B other than Buckley which is not promising. Kind of like a football coach saying this is my QB win or lose or a bb manager saying here is the pitcher that is going to take us to the world series.
The point guard play is not working nor is the overall sense of urgency with this team. There are other issues such as rebounding, team itdentity, etc.
I think it is time to start over. Our coach is a nice guy and his players seem to play that way. We need a nasty coach with a mean streak.

Do you folks even watch basketball outside of ISU games?[/QUOTE]
I do watch alot of basketball and Nebraska is the only team that DG would compete for a starting job. I have not watched Colorado, so I'm not sure there. The other nine teams have better point guards (most have 2 or 3 better).
