As it says in our title block
A million opinions. And so it is that I offer up a dissenting view on the Eric Devendorf injury. Please do not misunderstand me here, I am not happy that Devo's season is over after Saturday's injury, however I'm not exactly upset about it either. Losing Rautins, that was more of a devastating blow to this team and this season's hopes, and yes, that was frustrating as a fan. To put it bluntly, its a shame that it took a season-ending injury to accomplish what the coaching staff hasn't had the balls to do in 3 years with Devo --- reign the kid and his cockiness in for the benefit of the team as a whole. I wish Eric a successful recovery and hope to see him on the court again next year -- playing team basketball and giving maximum effort, while keeping his trap closed. And while I'm not tossing the towel in on this season by any means, at least now Boeheim has to play the bench - and that will pay off in the years to come. As for this year, Jonny, the backcourt stage is yours to operate and this is one Idiot who is going to enjoy the shows.
