I've been writing Forrest Griffin's book (UFC fighter) and he said back in school, fights that "just happened" he always won and fights that was "I'll see you after school" he's lose. Mainly because it was "jump in" vs. "think about all day and think about how you can mess up." Maybe this is Lavy's approach. Instead of Bob thinking about how he'll need to step up in certain games, throw him into the pool and see if he can swim.

And if he fails, Lavy has something to go off of to shut up people who say he should be playing ahead of Bouch. Whether you agree with that or not is up to you, but it will give him the "Remember Bob's last start?" excuse.
