Stu Douglass "Not Mainstream" Podcast, Episode 7

Submitted by thatguycharlie on December 13th, 2018 at 1:37 PM

Episode 7 of Stu's podcast "Not Mainstream" was released yesterday (Anchor or iTunes). The summary is as follows:

College coaches get too much credit for the development and play of under-the-radar kids, nit picking potential problems that could arise for Michigan basketball, everyone needs to take it easy on the Michigan bench guys and why it's very difficult to crack Beilein's rotation mid-season, interview questions from college I would answer differently now (aka with more truth), and more Twitter questions!

Pretty cool view into past teams and how we should interpret things happening now. He also shouts out an MGoComment on the South Carolina recap.

He may have a future doing this. You can tell he is beginning to learn the craft. He goes to bat for Austin Davis with empathy and relays what it is like to not be considered a leader or a star in Beilein’s eyes. He has pretty good self deprecating humor. Also, he graduated from Carmel High School - go hounds!

I've listened to a few of these podcasts and they all just kind of suck.  I sure hope he has a day job because I can't see him being successful as a podcaster once he runs out of Beilein stories.

What does he have to say about not being a star’s impact? Who does he credit for the development of players? From the summary, there sounds like potential bitterness from a former player. Of course players have a huge role in their own growth, and I have observed Beilein is stubborn to play players until they can do twenty backflips blindfolded, but what has Austin Davis and the Blame McLimans of the world done to prove playing time? If a coach asks for a certain thing, listen to them and do it. The more talented, The I get the leash—but he often benched Moe early in his career due to his foul troubles and would leave him there for the rest of the game. Zavier has to re-earn his position. So what does Stu actually say? The summmary is pretty vague and seemingly critical of a coach who has taken UM to two Tourney finals and more Final Fours.
