    I was posting it once a month but in the off season I am going to try to do it once per week.
    Thanks. I just didn't know how to find them. I am a computer idiot.

    Question 1: Does he see his dramatic late season turnaround taking some of the pressure off of him, or putting more on, as he looks to next season?

    Question 2: What effect did his Christian faith have (if there was an effect) on his life/attitude during the up and down year?

    Adversity

    Pronounced Ad-ver-si-ty, meaning a “condition marked by misfortune, calamity & distress.” Derived from the Middle English adversite & Latin adversitas, ad- towards & vert to turn. So Adversity comes from “turning towards” someone OR OPPOSING them, an opposition.

    That would be Quentin Wright’s 2010-11’s season in a nutshell. And he will be the first to admit that he was wondering, just like many of you, “What was going on?” Was it his injury? Was it things going on in his life? Was it in his head? From where was that said opposition coming?

    His story is something befitting of a Hollywood script complete with a Rocky ending where he vanquishes all of his foes right in the very land of Sylvester Stallone’s cinema creation, Philadelphia. It is a drama in three acts which even includes moments of self-doubt, a love interest, friends & foes. And it took so long to tell that I had to separate it into 2 parts complete with our usually absurdity & insouciance. For more of Quentin's interview click here....

    Sounds like a huge communication breakdown between Cael and Quentin. Either Cael was pushing his style too hard on Quentin, or Quentin believed Cael wanted him to change his style more than was actually true. Either way, I don't know why you mess with Q's style, as you can see it's pretty effective.

    If you continue reading, Q says that eventually he incorporated his style with what Cael was teaching him & he attributes winning the NCAAs because of that...

    Yes I read the whole thing. When he was struggling and telling the coaches he wasnt getting "their style" why wouldn't the coaches say "do what you feel confident in" instead of insisting that he keep trying? It took Quentin deciding he was going to do it his way and not the coaches, that seemed strange.

    Gotcha...
    Not sure. I guess one would have to ask the staff that.
    It all worked out in the end though.
