Where is this guy at. One minute against Kent State and this guy gets 0 points, 0 rebounds, 0 steals, 0 assist and 0 blocks. He can't even commit a foul to get on the stat sheet because he's not even around anyone on the court. This guy is playing games with his future and doesn't even care or maybe he is just a one hit wonder and has a concussion. Can anyone confirm if coach smacked him over his head before he got on the court .

Well, one minute is no time at all, J., to accumulate stats. To be fair, he needs a longer run in a game to get acclimated to the flow and to his teammates. At the same time, the red flags are definitely up on Taurean. Is he damaged goods, is he ill, is there another explanation? Because what we're seeing so far does explain his stat line last year at The Hall, very meager.

Given the high expectations on Thompson, I can see why there are questions as to what might going on, but perhaps there are issues that are understandably private in nature. You never really know what is going on in someone else’s life.

Watch the 2:00 minute to 2:02 and explain what is going on with this rebound and Taurean.

October 30th practice video watch 0:19. He looks like he is fine.

Coach post game interview.

If I were to read between the lines Taurean you have one chance to try to see the court in college and that is against WMU. Right know it sounds like Brandon and "surprise guy is taking all your minutes for the rest of the year". Winters are cold in the D.

Something seems not right with him. I feel sorry for him at this point.

looks like his shoes are screwed to the floor on that phantom board....
In Greek mythology, the Titans were greater even than the gods. They ruled their universe with absolute power! Well that basketball court out there tonight, that's our universe. Let's rule it like Titans! (with apologies to coach boon)

All I can do is pray for this guy at this point but someone in Cali Hall needs to step up an talk to this guy, if he is purposely tanking isn't going to solve an issue on or off the court. He needs to realize all he is doing is shutting the door on opportunities and his future. If it is something else I hope the best for the guy but it doesn't look like basketball going to be in his future.

JDetroitTitan, you deserve the 2020 JackAss Award for this post. Totally insensitive post with offensive remarks. This young man does not deserve your personal attacks.

He definitely looked like he was not quite "with us" in the one minute of action I saw him play. Seemed to be running around in a different virtual reality.
