Thad "can't recruit"????? man. Thats news. We've missed on a lot, but you can't go back after the fact and say we cant recruit. I don't think the program is as far away as it seems. One guy like this one, to go with the newly focused search on Ohio kids we have, and we're right back in it.
Thad lost that strategy....lock down Ohio kids, and add a big national fish every once in a while, and I think he's finding he has to re establish some relationships, which he will. Like it or not, the fact that we let Archie head to Bloomington, shows me that he's gonna be here for the foreseeable future. If we get this kid, one of the grad transfers, and Kam comes back, watch out.
No one can win here, there is no good solution. Either Conley is in fact guilty of these crimes, and deserves full prosecution, or this woman is lying, and is going to cost Gareon millions of dollars. This just sucks.
My interpretation of this mess, is that Conley got himself in a not great situation to begin with, then was an asshole to this girl (got what he wanted and sent her packing), and she was mad about the whole thing and figured she can at least get a nice civil suit out of this, or at least try to ruin him because of her embarrassment.
No one wins. Either Conley is a terrible person who committed an unforgivable crime, or this woman is the worst. Either way, I hope for a quick resolution, and again, when you get in bad situations (drinking, women, promiscuity - especially as a soon to be millionaire) bad things happen.
I believe the UCLA game is in Vegas...the 3rd leg of the UCLA/OSU/UK/Unc round robin thing.
I don't agree that we're the same as last year....we're a little better. The first half at Va was super impressive. I certainly don't expect a final four run, but I think youre looking at a team that goes something like 22-8 in the regular season, get a 5 or 6 seed, and maybe depending on matchups ends up in the sweet 16. Time will tell
