listening to the lax sports network coverage of the Five Star Showcase All Star game and them praising kids for playing up.....LOL....ironic since the kid they were praising is reclassed and technically playing down in their All-Star game.
That was one of the most ludicrous statements about that particular player I've ever heard. I'm sure Mark send them all the talking points, and the Maryland folks just repeat like its fact. Actually sad
Its comical and sad...the old man acts like a tough guy and than reclasses his kid.
Kids a great player I'm sure. The old mans Ego is off the charts. Can you imagine calling Cottle and saying, hey make sure you mention me and my wife during the broadcast, I attached a picture of me playing 100 years ago. but its all about the kid.
Saw him play up close and he's terrific, even at the 2022 level and at the HS level, I just think its a joke that they purposely call out playing up...no additional hype needed and it discredits any true Sophomore that is playing up.
S did the same thing with his kid. Oh, he's playing up ... blah blah blah. No, he's a holdback. The newspapers all bought into the garbage and the kid sets records as a "freshman" being up to 18 months older than other freshman. And, I have to say the kid is an amazing player and would still be without Daddy's shenanigans. That's the true shame of it.
This board loves to rail at the unathletic parents "who never played a sport in their life" pushing their kids but completely misses the glaring one who played D 2, was too small to be successful, and pushes their kids to make up for their own deficiencies, holding them back because they're small too ...
