Josh Gasser feels great

Josh Gasser feels great 


So I drove down to Chicago to see Josh Sharma and Payton Pritchard and who do I bump into?

None other than Josh Gasser, who was working the adidas camp.

Thanks for continuing to pile on the Badger Hoops coverage in July. Can't get enough. We know what Josh will give us. Given that he'll be much improved physically, it is obvious he will also be much improved, especially on the defensive end.

When did we last have this many good/great players returning? 1941?

Did hernias become contagious amongst the team members like the flu bug did this past season? tongue

Not much recovery time with hernia surgery - i have been thru it and it took away the awful pain that comes with them every so often!

Great stuff.  Thanks.

Would LOVE to see Sharma and Pritchard team up together for the Badgers.  Would be a GREAT combo. 

Hope they're discussing that and that they commit soon as it would likely help getting a great wing and perhaps another big.

So Jeff, what about Sharma and Pritchard? Did they play and did you see them?

Jeff, according to this Josh Sharma's parents have moved to Hawaii.  Is he staying in Massachusetts for his senior year?

And like his parents, who recently moved from Lexington to Hawaii, Sharma is smart, too. He recently scored a 31 on his ACT's, according to Carroll (the high score is 36).

Carroll said Sharma's visit to UConn was great and that he had visited Boston College the day before. This summer, he's planning a Midwest tour to see Ohio State, Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, Northwestern and Michigan. The only official he's made so far has been to Wisconsin, back in January

Recruits cannot take official visits to schools until their senior year of High School.

This is the hungriest I've seen a Badger team.  Can't wait for next season to tip-off.

Official visits are permitted in junior year.

Re: Josh Gasser feels great 


This season is looking more and more like it could be a perfect storm of having all the pieces for a run at the national title.  Kaminsky drew raves for his play against top teams at the end of last season, Dekker is looking really good (and bigger) this summer, and, just as significantly, Gasser, one of only three players to be a starter as a true freshman under Ryan, is finally healthy and should also be better in this his fourth year as a starter.  A lot is being said about how good Kaminsky and Dekker will be, Hayes too for that matter if he makes a typical freshman to sophomore year jump (our front court this year will average something like 6' 9" and 240 lb.), but a healthy hustling Gasser could be as valuable to the team as anyone.

You mean like last year? biggrin

Seriously though, a few bounces the opposite way in the Arizona game and UW loses. Lots of weird things happen in the tournament and you need a bit of luck along the way.If Wisconsin and Kentucky end up on the same side of the bracket they could have lost before the final four. All I'm saying is Wisconsin could actually be better next year and not even make it to the Final Four. I'm just going to enjoy the ride.

(post isn't really directed at you, dcamp. I've just been seeing a lot of "final four lock" talk around here)

"Make a run" does not mean it is a 50% chance or anything like that, just that our chances are better this year (in my opinion) than in any previous year, including the season where we were #1 for a week.  With two all-Americans and likely first round draft picks of our own, a front court that averages 6' 9", and two senior guards (the importance of that can't be understated), this is a year where we finally match up on paper with the best in the country.

Last year there were some who were willing to write the season off before it even started be we short (an ailing Gasser as our small forward) and thin (Kaminsky and Dekker as our two young relatively inexperienced bigs) and lacking depth (we were going to have to rely on unproven freshmen) in the front court.  Compare that with this front court, two likely all-Americans and a potentially unstoppable brute in Hayes.  Like night and day.  It is just a whole different feel this year.

Re: Josh Gasser feels great 


I found it interesting that Gasser said, " Last year…by April I was just exhausted. I really want to be healthy.” There were some who worried that Gasser was playing too many minutes. This year there should be more depth.

Also, this is a time for dreaming of what could be, not so much for being realistic. Last year this time we were looking forward to replacing three front line starters... turned out pretty well, but it could have turned out differently.

Gasser was referring to the constant rehab with the knee and the hernia issue.

Re: Josh Gasser feels great 


It's hard to try & temper expectations and not have it feel like a bit of a debbie downer or something. It does take some luck & good bounces no matter how good you are. That said, winning through the season helps and we'll being the year as a heavyweight beyond what we've really ever had before.

All that said, this is really probably as much or more for myself than anyone else, but the best thing to do is just try to focus on enjoying the ride. No matter what this team does in the tournament, there's going to be some terrific basketball to watch over the course of the season.

Engage the good posters, ignore the bad, report as inappropriate the problems. Message board rules. Thanks.

I will take that bet. If he makes it, I will stop posting here for one year. If he doesn't make first team, you will stop posting here for one year.

Stl has been proposed similar bets in the past. History suggests that he will pretend that he never saw your post.

Yes, UW was in attendance. Great facility. Not-so-great area.
