THREE FOR BART: Sophs, Rondae, Oregon

Three For BART is a daily (or really close to that) drop of three thought provoking articles for your commute or day. Submissions for inclusion taken at:

  1. Deonte Burton, Kennedy Meeks lead Breakout Sophomore Formula candidates – Dive into this study (the link) and you’ll find that our own Pac-12 conference gets a shout out. Que Johnson, the Cougar, seems poised for big things as a sophomore based on his limited role with alpha output last season. Additionally, Wynn doesn’t really note that he’ll now be playing in a higher octane offense for Coach Ernie. Look for a study on Pac-12 Freshmen-to-Sophomores in the coming weeks.
  2. Column: To Start, or not to start, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson – Start. You start RJH because he’s likely to fulfill the first four letters of that word, S-T-A-R. It’s not a question but I appreciate the effort and the statistical try at quantifying it. The DW isn’t wrong in noting he was more productive off the bench. But that was a different team. Now, 2014-15, isn’t so much about replacing Aaron Gordon and Nick Johnson so much as developing a new identity.
  3. University of Oregon responds to KATU story in letter to alumni – Maybe I’m an idealist, someone who doesn’t think a given action is rooted in pure evil, but I choose to believe Oregon didn’t overtly delay the expulsion of Dotson, Artis, and Austin for APR purposes. But maybe they did. The key point here is I think it’s a great question for KATU to ask because things lined up as such. The school has responded.
