According to the grasshopper, this is exactly what you would expect to hear when the coaches talk to each other during games.
HS - “So Seljaas and Nixon aren’t doing much in the game so far, should we take them out or keep playing them?”
DR - “Let’s keep them in and give them at least 20 minutes of court time to see if they can play as well in the game as they do in practice”
15 min. later…
HS - “It’s still not happening, should we take them out and try Dastrup?”
DR - “No way, he doesn’t do well in practice so he needs to sit”
HS - “Maybe we could try him for a couple minutes, Seljaas and Nixon are killing us out there”
DR - “Okay, get him in there… but only for a couple minutes until he starts doing better in practice”
HS - “His defense is a little shaky but he is really productive and has turned the game around for us”
DR - “let’s get him out now, 4 minutes is long enough, even if he did score 5 points, grab 3 boards, block 2 shots and get a steal. He needs to do that in practice”
HS - “I realize I’m a defensive specialist, but Dastrup has game and he gives us a spark. He needs more than 5 minutes a game… we might need him down the stretch at the end of the season”
DR - “Heath… I brought you in to improve the defense, not come up with some plan to help us finish better than third in this conference”
HS - “Yeah, I know… sorry I suggested we play Dastrup more”
DR - “It’s okay, no worries. If he doesn’t like the way we do things here in Provo, he will transfer out… just like so many other good players have done”. He isn’t local talent, so nobody around here will care"
HS - “It’s hard to understand this philosophy, but I’m trying”
DR - “Did you hear about the kid from Payson? It’s kind of a drive to recruit him but we could go check him out this friday. He’s 6’2” and scores like 25 a game. He can’t play defense but that is why you are here"
HS - “This is going to take some getting used to”
