Looking at the B1G next year, unless there are early exits by non seniors many of the teams do not lose much from the senior classes. That said the league could be good as well next season. On coaches, I do not disagree that some change may be needed. However, if your a top young coach is a situation such as we have here a good decision????

IP I am aware we got CJ last year from JUCO. I do like him and what he can add to this team the next couple years and I dont intend to rag on him at all. However IMO he, at this time, is not near ready to be the point G on this team if this team is to compete at the top of the league night in and night out. Thus the reason Thad is hot on Mark Smith for the point position plus several others.

Lets hope he does well enough to be the freshman of the year in B1G or at least on all freshman team. With that and some others stepping up their games and maybe a grad transfer/JUCO point guard this team might be in the top half of conference next year. Yes I know, alot of "ifs".

Whats the latest on the NC State job. Thats Miller's alma mater. Whether it be Thad or some other coach this program needs this kid. Plus he is a point G. Watch the NCAA games. The great teams have great point G's. Watched his dad play for four years at OSU. His dad was all in and all effort. He was tough and never gave in. Was not a great athlete or physically gifted but was absolutely a guy you wanted on the court as long as he could play. If son is from same mold, lookout as he has skills.

If it is all at a possiblility then Thad better make it happen especially if it brings Mark Smith given that he plays point guard. Do nothing and have another marginal year and he is giving the same speech Groce gave yesterday.

Lets accept bid but start Bell, Tate, Wesson, Thompson and Jackson and make sure they get excess of 33 minutes each. I know but I dont care about whether they are guards, centers, or forwards just play em. Bring Potter in for short rests for starters only and throw them back in. Maybe the frosh will learn about how good of condition you need to be in to play at this level.

Not much worried about the B1G tourney or the NIT. What happens will happen. Will not win more than two games in either. Could lose first game on both. What I am more concerned with is will this staff find a p guard to turn this offense into something that works instead of sputtering. Grad transfer? JUCO? Got to find someone.

Thad has always relied on good recruits that fit together and complimented each other and defense. Both of which now has regressed over the last couple years or more. IMO he has never been at the top of the coaching ranks as far as x's and o's/game/bench coach but with good recuits and a buy in by them defensively his teams won championships. Now I think it will be difficult to bring in top 50 players the way this team has looked the last two years. I hope he can do it. It will likely have to come back using recruits that are easy sells i.e. Ohio kids. First of all he needs a point G. This team looks the same next year without one.

This team needs another option at point guard for next year and thats assuming Beverly needs some time to develop as most agree. Where does he find that? Likely only as a graduate transfer at this point or possibly JUCO. We add KDB back in, likely subtract TT and Lyle as they move on with Loving, and add K Wesson and Funderburk. To me, at least on paper, next year looks alot like this year. Unless of course some guys make some substantial improvements.
