Bootleg Audio: Trent Johnson Preseason (II)

In this second installment of our preseason sit-down with the Stanford Basketball head coach, topics range from an undersized lineup to March Madness. From gameday coaching to defensive deficiencies. From the Alabama loss two years ago to the lineup variety he is exploring today. Trent Johnson talks freely in this preseason interview, so pull up a chair and have a listen.

These three clips take Stanford fans deeper into the mind of the Cardinal head coach as he approaches this team and the game of basketball.  He discusses the implications of a smaller roster in 2005-06, with the challenges that will bring as well as the versatility his players need to carry.  Johnson comments on the areas he values in a team, where he needs to see this squad to improve.  On game day, a head coach cannot watch everything on the floor at once, and Johnson describes for us where his eyes roam and how he coaches between the horns.  Finally, talk turns to March Madness - how it differs from the early season and how unfair it can be judged.
