Came back into town for hoopfest this past weekend and got the chance to meet meech and have a lengthy conversation with him on music, sports, and his upcoming role for the team among other things...seems like a great kid who is really focused.

Welcome, Meech! We can't wait to see you in a Zags uniform in K2!

Hope Goodson settles in quickly and enjoys what the Inland Empire has to offer.

Original Poster claims to have had a lengthy discussion with him about music. Like all Texans, I assume Goodson finds it very difficult to choose between the two types of music: Country or Western?

Goodson said he was very excited to be here and said he is ready for the spotlight in a very confident tone (not to be confused with cocky). When asked if he was upset that jeremy came back he said not at all, he will have a year to learn from him and whenever his time comes he will be ready and surprise a lot of people.

and the conversation about music was all about rap...just to clear the air!

I've heard from 3 separate sources that Demetri is a very good young kid....Raves they were! 1 from a parent whose son is a teamate, 1 from a local heart doc there and another source that he will not disappoint when it comes to him as a player or a citizen. These things matter. Great student there at Klein as well. I'd expect him to really mean it's an opportunity to spend a year learning. I suspect we struck it rich with this one. It's been quite a while since the Zags had a true point guard ( vs a combo).....however we found him, we found a diamond.

would you not consider raivio to be a true point guard??

Had to move over for Pargo, as Jeremy is more of a "true-point". Poor passing vision. Derek is the classic 2 guard in a point guard body. Miss that jumper though.

The fact remains that Few has done an excellent job of bringing guys in at just the right time -- Meech can learn from Pargo who learned from Raivio who learned from Stepp, etc.

If Pargo had left I would have been very worried about Meech facing too many minutes early -- or that Bouldin/Gray would have to play out of position.

My credentials are established as soneone whose predictions don't always come true. OK, maybe not very often at all (Theo Davis was exactly what we needed, Robert Sacre would have a huge impact freshmen year, etc). So I will throw this into the mix: Meech is flat out gonna be key to some great years! My nickname for him? Linch pin.
