At first it was the appendix situation, but I remember BB saying that "some players" did not show for camp in shape. If Getz was one of those (whether because he couldn't get into shape with the appendix problem or because of distractions), it would explain his step back. However, I would hope that he is enough of a elite/dedicated athlete to get back into shape during the season. Maybe that's not possible with the rigors of the schedule??
