Larry Brown isn’t an AAU level coach. I’d be shocked if he’s not providing them with the specifics of their failures along with providing a detailed plan for success. Whether these guys and Penny buy into what the old gieser is saying is hard to guess. If they listen then Brown can absolutely show them the path to reaching their potential and that’s the scary thing about Memphis State this season IMHO

1. I think Larry Brown may be too old to really to really lead the team.
2. I don’t think Penny will let Larry become defacto coach due to ego etc.

You may well be right. I understood most folks thought Penny didn’t know how to coach and that was holding Memphis State back. Nobody can say Larry Brown doesn’t know how. I’m not thinking Penny just hands the keys over to LB, but Penny isn’t stumbling around in the dark with a resource like LB to tap for directions.

Sure they could IF they listen to Brown. But it is pretty obvious Penny isn’t. Or maybe Brown’s style is not something the new breed of players wants to listen to. Either way it’s not happening so far. I just hope it doesn’t click in till January.

You have a child in a man’s body running that program. Therein lies the crux of the problem.
