Does anyone wonder why Tucker didnt get any min. and why McAlphin got min..... I dont understand Gary. He would rather play walk-on McAlphin and the most unathletic terp... maybe ever in David Neal... than Bowie, Tucker, Walker and Dupree.....

Tucker had the flu, McAlpin played well defensively and Bowie and Walker got minutes.

Before you insult players you should do some research.

You are insulting coach Williams because you act like you know more about how to develop his team than he does. He has only won about 600 games and 1 national championship so of course you know better than him. Let me know when you get a head coaching job in the ACC so I can make uninformed comments about your performance as a coach.

Neal has earned minutes by raising his game in practice. Gary plays the best player at the moment.

Come on folks.....David Neal would not start in Division 2. Gary, to his credit, is immensely loyal to upperclassmen (who can get him coeds) and who practice like they are possessed. Ever team has a Neal so I applaud him for his ability to dupe Coach and stay on this team

So now no one is allowed to have an opinion. If you read my first comment i said does anyone else wonder why. I love Gary.... i know i couldnt coach anywhere near the level he can.... but you are honestly going to tell me that David Neal is the best option at the 4 spot for the present and future of this team.... I dont care that the man cant hit a lay up or an open jumper.... watch how he gets worked on the Defensive end.... David Neal needs to be sitting on the bench.... or maybe even sitting in the stands

Yeah but Neal has the one sleeve thing and I think that makes him intimidating....he's had a good moment or two. I think he's basically there to give Boom and Gist a rest from time to time.

Neal is def there to give a rest to Gist and Osby.

Neal does get worked defensively but he has also had a few fouls called om him that were all ball. He is no Byron Muton or even Jamar Smith but he does provide a fresh body who is somewhat experienced. I think we will see his performance improve- and we might really need him after the reg season.

What has Dupree and Milborne showed you? They are both inexperienced.
