Also, look, I value safety as much as the next guy, but I don want to be yelled at for not announcing that I “slowing, stopping, stopped, rolling, going through.” It breeds such a hive mind mentality and doesn teach cyclists to think for themselves and scan the road. That takes all the joy out of a ride for me. Especially when C riders start bickering that they don want to be 4th in a pace line, they want to ride 2nd or 3rd, as if it an insult that they not in front..

The guy was a basically just a run and jump, dunks/blocks/rebounds guy his freshman year who had a serious fouling problem. Not only did he seem to learn an entire arsenal of low post moves over one summer, he also made significant strides with his shot, and I think he only ended up fouling out once this whole season. I still have major concerns with Bruno’s post defense, but I think the rest of his game projects well going forward..
