IMHO ..Franklin isn't a D1 2 guard. He can't shoot consistently..when wide open. I hoped he would grow into the role..but he's got some issues obviously he needs to deal with.

Funny thing is Franklin already de-committed from USC before picking Cal. I'd guess he ends up at a place like SD State or UNLV. What would really be funny is if Tubby Smith recruits him to replace J Cobbs and now Devoe.

Maybe Gary winds up at the clearinghouse of Cal rejects -- Fullerton. Would be close to home.

I am starting to wonder about Montgomery and his ability to manage the egos of star players. This is something that he should have been able to manage.

Managing a star player's ego is a lot easier than managing the ego of a scrub who thinks he's a star.

That's too bad. I wish him well. He had a bad (erratic) night in the SDSt game---almost out of control. Good luck to him wherever he ends up---ironically---SDSt.

He would not have even been starting if we had a better option. Good lord the kid couldn't hit the broad side of a barn. He may be a good to even great shooter down the road but he did nothing for us.

Go Bears!

Rossi's shot - 01-05-2011, 02:32 PM

I've seen him play and he easily has the most D1 ready shot (a quick, high release) I say all this knowing that Franklin was suppose to be a great shooter as well...and that hasn't exactly been the case.

I don't see this as a loss at all....I was worried the day he got benched that he'd be a problem. He hasn't had to work for anything...if Baylor still wants him all I'd say is that I hope we play Baylor!
Only way it's a loss is that we didn't have many bodies to begin with...

Go Bears!

Did you see Powers in the Hartford game? I wouldn't count on him, unless that was a really bad night for him

CRAP!
if taking 10 shots and making 3 is "putting it in the hole" then I say we just give MSF those extra shoots and see what he does! I'm guessing he'd do better than 30%
I'm guessing you were trying to say that he was a threat to score but the reality wasn't playing out that way. At some point he was killing us not only with his shooting % but the shots he was taking were terrible...leading to pts for the other team and momentum for the other team (and away from us)...he also had some brutal turnovers and wasn't contributing at all on D.

probably b/c there was nobody else on the bench with near his upside; which I guess turned out to be downside.

Go Bears!

His dad wanted him at the point and they're going to go to a place where they will be promised that opportunity. The thing is, will that promise be kept once that new coaching staff figures out (if they haven't already) that he's not a PG?
