Very true. If OSU had a couple of shooters they'd be decent.

Rotnei is such a clown, it has been and will always be about him. You can't change that.

But it's okay that WW was that way? Or Tiny? Or TMG? Or a number of other players that we recruited, or are recruiting?

He's a great shooter, of course he is going to have a big on an ego. Funny thing is, is that he knew WW was going to be a cancer long before OU figured it out.

You dont have to apologize. On top of being a better person, less selfish, a harder worker, he's flat out just a better player. Cade could rebound, defend, and score. All Rotnei does is look for his shot, or stand around and pout when his teammates are not spending all their effort trying to set him up for shots.

His dad can cry all he wants, but Rotnei stands around way to much. If he spent more time working to get open like a Richard Hamilton or Ray Allen, he would get more shots. Since that's obviously all he cares about. He and his dad.

Who said it was OK? This thread is about Rotnei, the other players you mentioned have been discussed at length...no need to go there. Probably a reason why we don't have a head coach right now. I would still have taken WW over Rotnei, hands down.

You can have an ego and swagger, nothing wrong with that. But judging from his perceived mindset which is backed up by his loud mouth uncle, he is about #1 first, the other four guys on the floor second. It's about him and how many points he scored in high school, its about putting up big numbers so ESPN will flash his name at the bottom of the screen after it shows Arkansas lost again.He honestly believes that he should run around the offensive end and everyone should set screens for him. At some point in life, Rotnei (as well as the others you mentioned) will realize that you need the help of others to achieve goals, you can't do it yourself. Unfortunately for Rotnei, he will probably realize that after his eligibility has expired.

32 minutes a game....averaged 1 assist.

That's pitiful for a lead guard. Kid can shoot though, will give him that.

ONE ASSIST?

Are you kidding me? I didn't know it was that bad.

geezus.

As Abe would say he averaged exactly one more assist than a dead man.

that's not just pitiful, it's complete BS and he needs a slappin'.

With all due respect...it was 1.6 assists.

Didn't get a game with more than 3 assists until March 2nd.

How can a guy who's averaged over 7 three point attempts per game over 90+ career games complain that he's underutilized?

because this is a kid whose HS coach (uncle?) designed the entire offense around him for years and made it so he could put up 50 shots a game.

Clarke took almost 80 more shots than any player on the Arkansas team this season while handing out a Mother Theresa-like 49 total assists in just under 1000 minutes played. Sounds like the kind of guard who gets a coach fired more than one you should build an offense around. Even the Jimmer averaged 4.3 assists this year.

I'll honestly admit I liked Clarke out of HS and wanted him to be a Sooner. Yet after following his career closely, and watching his father and uncle grant more interviews than the Bomar family, I am so glad that that he decided to take his talents to Fayetteville.

Mother Theresa handed out more in one lunch than Clarke has in his career.
