Well... Reading up on Coach Robinson, I read something where he built the texas defense to what it was in 05' national championship team. He got the team mentally tougher. Mentally toughness has alot to do with everything. So while Coach Robinson is getting the players MENTALLY tougher.... You have Barwis, who is getting the players physically tougher and mentally tougher, as well. Adding these two types of coaches together is great. Maybe thats what coach Rodriguez was looking at. Someone who he can trust when hes not around the defense to get the defense tougher.
Mason NEEDS this, Pistons, after all you've put him through
