Criticism is often just “analysis person x doesn’t like”.
If Devin was this ill and that was causal for his ineffectiveness (the exact same types of ineffectiveness that I covered in my breakdown of his play at LSU which gave me pause in projecting him, and exactly what we saw in the preseason) then he should NOT have been playing. It isn’t heroic to compromise your defense because you’re compromised. And it’s not good coaching to put a player in position where he has to voluntarily “tap out.” White is NOT the kind of guy who is going to beg out of a game so this is on the coaches.
For the sake of White and the sake of the team, LVD should have played the Middle and Bucannon the Moe.
