That’s the notion that seems to floating around in Cal’s head a little bit, at least according to what he said yesterday [via Cat Scratches]:
“I think I’m going to try to play Jarrod a little bit,” Calipari said. “They played one-on-one a little bit, the guys that aren’t playing, and Jarrod won going away because he played harder. Well, then he should be out there. Why shouldn’t he be playing? Give him a chance. So I may throw him in the game.”
So there you go. Cal seems to have made a habit of picking a different guy who he says is going to see increased playing time, only to run pretty much the same rotation all year. So, needless to say, it’ll be pretty surprising if this really happens. But, if it does, I’m all for it. Polson has put in ample time keeping Enes Kanter company this year, and now that Enes has clipboard responsibilities, the Nicholasville freshman might as well see some clock. But remember…if he comes in the game, just run the offense.
