I am very impressed with the attitude of all our players. Yesterday, Jitim Young was on the local news talking about the international flavor of our team. He seemed to excited and happy that his enthusiasm was infectious. He is a great leader and I look for him to have a huge year. Jitim represents everything that is good about college basketball.
We still are a very young team. That is one area that worries me. This makes me think we are one or two years away from really making some noise. This is also frustrating because there are some deserving players who might miss out on something that they helped build. I felt terrible for Tavares Hardy and Collier Drayton when we didn't make the post season last year. Let's not repeat that with Winston Blake, Aaron Jennings and Jason Burke.
I am going to try to make it to as many games as possible because some great things could happen in Evanston. We might still be a year away from making a national splash, but I am looking forward to an improved team and a great season.
These are just some of my thoughts. I am interested to hear what others have to say.
