He’s Gone

He’s give us so much over the last few seasons and so we just have to be happy for him. I wish him the best, but when you’ve done almost everything you can do at the university, why stay? Greener pastures await and I sure hope that supporters don’t begrudge him the opportunity of a life time. GOOD LUCK!

One of the main questions that might be behind the wait is whether or not ‘testing the waters’ can help a player or not. Roy Williams does not think so and I can only guess that the four gentleman are wondering if he is correct. The evidence shows that Roy knows what he’s doing. Look at this list of players who participated last season and then look at the draft results. Only one first round pick participated and Daequan Cook was projected as a mid to late first rounder before the camp and that is exactly where he was drafted. There are a few examples of players that moved  up into the first round such as David Lee,  Jason Maxiell,  and Jordan Farmer. Most players that play are either picked in the second round or un-drafted.  Basically, the ‘waters’ are not a variable.  I’m guessing that the Carolina way is to make sure that these guys don’t declare and then not get guaranteed contracts. In the case of all four deciding Tar Heels, that can not be done.

Dan Wiederer comes through with a behavioral analysis:

Remember the giddiness with which Hansbrough declared his return a year ago? Now contrast that with his staid demeanor at last week’s banquet.

It either spoke of a player finding it hard to say goodbye or of a kid struggling to figure out which decision will be best for him.

I’ can’t wait for the book on Pyscho T’s non verbal communication. I would still buy a t-shirt. Come on Thierry! Scousers score two! Dolphins are going to the Super Bowl. Eric….I’m shocked.
