I just caught the very end of Lazar Hayward's interview on local radio fave "The D-List", and he had some interesting things to say. They asked him about what the open gyms have been like this summer. He responded that he thought the open gyms would drop off a little in intensity this year because the guys coming in were so young and they wouldn't know what it was all about. HOWEVAH... It turns out he was pleasantly surprised by the intensity and the work ethic that each of the new guys has already brought to the table. He then went on to point out that the guy he's been most impressed with thus far is Dwight Buycks. He said (and I'm paraphrasing here) that if he had to pick one of the new guys that's going to be a major contriubtor this year, it's Dwight Buycks. Obviously that doesn't mean all that much, given that it's only August 4th, but it's still interesting to hear what your senior leader/best returning player has to say about the new guys coming into the program. And it's an interesting topic to kick around: Which MU newcomer do you think will have the biggest impact this season?
Plus, with the Brewers recent slide and my ever diminishing interest in football... when is Midnight Madness again?
