It’s obvious to me that if Smith is healthy it’s time to play him. What can you lose? Of course there could be things going on in practice that we do not know about. But if Smith is truly a lottery pick (I don’t see it)
then time for him to show it.
It’s also time for the coaching staff to take some responsibility for the way the team closes games. Muss said they executed the game plan perfectly the first half. But I believe the main reason the Hogs were ahead at the half was AM couldn’t throw it in the ocean. The 3 before the half was a killer momentum wise. I noticed Smith was very upset when that shot went in because he was taken out of the game. I just wonder if that is the reason he didn’t get back in game.
