Never said "to bench EJ", I did say limit the minutes of the guys that wont be here, Agee, Crawford, Perez, Thiam etc. next year, Get the future more playing time .
playing Ej 15 minutes is not starting him, which is benching him Have you ever scene a college team bench their seniors with 10 games left or at all? no players would come here
EJ aint getting benched. He deserves to play based on past performance, but he's the only one that kind of gets a pass (maybe agee too, but nowhere close to EJ). Nobody should have any issues with pulling players from games because of bad play, mistakes, or lack of effort. Cluess is the King at that quick sub when he sees something he doesn't like. Done it to EJ many times over the years.
It's too bad his leadership doesn't seem like it panned out this year though. Maybe he is behind the scenes, but it doesn't seem evident elsewhere.
Really looking for the players to show great heart tonight, even if it’s a losing outcome. Just leave it all out there. Gaels have finished last place only one time in MAAC history. Even without TC on the bench this team has no business being in the cellar of this conference.
