I see where UNI fans felt he could be a good one down the road... nice player!
This year is going to suck...worse than we thought.
Next year will be pretty good.
18/19 will be damn good.
Carlson is dependent on his confidence level. He's always, going back to HS, struggled to have high confidence at all times. He's picked up 2 techs this year. He played out of his mind in both games. After the second one Jake sat him on the bench to tell him "That isn't good". Since then his confidence is gone and he isn't the same. Maybe he'll get it back....hopefully.
The talent is there, it's just really young and really inexperienced.
