We’ve been missing that kind of toughness from our lineup. When you are missing one of your enforcers, his sweet jumper and his tough defense, it hurts us. Everybody is glad to have him back.
We've been a team that has ebbed and flowed all year. When we're good, we're going, but when we're bad (we're not). We haven't gotten a voice to shake us out of it. We've got people trying to play us out of it, but we're missing a voice. We've just got to go to work Sunday, settle down and say 'ok, we've got this' and hope for a better end to the weekend.
We've been in contact with the commissioner of education and at this point in time, she has given us permission to waive all days that we missed because of our current circumstance. What we anticipated would happen in Houston instead has happened in Lufkin, Texas, so at this point, we're not required to use our weather days. We still have cold weather coming and we might have to use those at that point in time.
Now that we've got our lineup straightened out the last month, our rotation may be similar to some of our real good teams, ... We're not as good defensively, we're not as good a rebounding team, but we're a much better shooting team. It's different, but it's got some similarities in areas that are key to winning championships.
We've said from the start that there was no doctor shopping, but Mr. Limbaugh should not have to give up his right to doctor-patient confidentiality to prove his innocence. The medical records that the State has seized and reviewed now for nearly six months show that Mr. Limbaugh received legitimate medical treatment for legitimate medical reasons.
We've got to know that it's going to be a tough game. We can't think that just because we are playing at home that it will be a walk in the park. Obviously, they showed tonight that they want to end in second place in our conference and want home-field advantage, so it's going to be a huge statement, because this is going to be the team will either going to end our season or going to be the springboard to our championship, so we'll have to deal with them.
