B randon Sager planned to take a more hands-off approach this season. He was going to limit his yelling and instruction from the sideline in an attempt to allow his Negaunee Miners to develop organically. But the uncertainty and inconsistency of season openers has a way of changing even the best-intended plans, especially when you miss 10 of your first 11 shots and find yourself on the wrong side of an early-game run.
Then, you probably have no choice but to raise your voice.
“I wasn’t going to yell tonight or this year, but that changed when we didn’t listen to instructions,” Sager said with a laugh.
