Yeah, it's starting to remind me of Gary's "flex offense" in that he won't change it to fit his personnel. I think that Williams' stubborness cost Maryland a win or two during the NCAAs in the mid-90s when he had Smith/Rhodes/et al (though no one was beating UCLA that night they dunked the Terps into oblivion). It also hurt his late 90s teams with Profit & Stevie Francis, though Francis had the good sense to say "#### it, I'm the best player on the floor" (the only time Francis showed good sense) and took over some games they needed to win badly.
He FINALLY got off of it and - shocker! - won a national championship with the Dixon/Baxter/Blake group, though he caught lightening in a bottle there.
To be honest, I don't even know what Turgeon's offense is supposed to BE. At least I could see Gary's "flex" when it was being run, as much as it made me puke sometimes.
I was really excited for this year's squad. Losing Jackson hurt immensely; though he hadn't played well he got attention from opposing defenses. Bender also hurt more than his production would make one think.
For this team, now, to be good they need Nickens & Wiley to shed whatever kryptonite has been messing with them the last two years.
