What will be different next season? Will KMitch return? Will the commitment too the Defensive End of floor be better? Will the isolation offense and poor shot selection be different. Will there be in-game adjustments that actually work? This was a team with FF talent that Kevin McGuff coached to a Sweet 16 loss again. Until the Lady Bucks learn to value defense as much as offense, they won't progress. Until they learn that the assist is a part of basketball, they won't be any better offensively.  As a comparison, in yesterday's Elite 8 Game, Connecticut had 20 assists on 30 made FG's. This is just not a well-coached team and it's easy to see why they lose.

That's such a bullshit narrative that people who don't know basketball perpetuate. Last year the top ranked recruiting class was Louisville and the year before it was Baylor, 3 years ago it was Duke. Geno doesn't just get all the best players, he just coaches the ones he gets better than any other coach in history. His Senior Class this year consists of Saniya Chong, who was the only player he recruited 4 years ago and former walk-on Tierney Lawlor, who answered a Breanna Stewart tweet to tryout becaus ethey didn't have enough players to practice. Kevin McGuff is actually a better recruiter than Geno, he's just no where near as good a coach.

I've heard it all before, this team will beat Connecticut, that team will beat Connecticut, Connecticut is ripe to be taken down, well 109 straight wins says otherwise. FSU had their shot and came up short when their best player missed a shot at the buzzer, MD came close twice, but no cigar. Connecticut has too much firepower on offense, they play defense without fouling and Geno and CD always find a way to tak away their opponent's best offensive player. Like they did last night with Sykes from Syracuse. Everyone said this was the the year to get them, not likely!!

I don't know what Irish team you watch, but they are aren't tenacious on the boards, their leading rebounder is Brianna Turner and she only averages 7.5 per game. They're in the middle of the pack in the ACC in rebounding and rebounding margin, now Turner is out injured. The problem tOSU wil have is defending ND, especially Lindsey Allen and Arike Ogunbwale. Westbeld will be a non-factor, she always is and Boley runs hot-and-cold, Mabrey can be a threat, but if she's not making her outside shot she won't be a factor either. Jackie Young is a stud on both ends of the floor and will be tough for tOSU to match up with, that said if the Buckeyes can bring the defensive intensity they brought in the first half of the Kentucky game and KMitch has a one of her signature game, tOSU can beat this team. They still can't beat Connecticut, but they don't have to play them yet.......

Lattimore's injury history has to be a legitimate concern, as well as his minuscule body of work, but his ball skills, hip turn. closing speed, change of direction and ability to shadow receivers were on full display this season and all were superior. While Conley may have had more film, I don't believe at any point in his career he had better film.

Comment 05 Mar 2017

As long as the current staff remains in place, these things will continue to happen, McGuff apologists notwithstanding, the Lady Bucks made no adjustments to an offense that obviously wasn't working. Why not go inside to McCoy more? Waterman was effective in the high-post, did they exploit that? Doss' wild forays to the goal and Sierra Calhoun's inability to hit jump shots were killing them, do either of them know how to shot fake? It's not surprising and some of us predicted this before the season started. It doesn't matter how much depth you have if you don't know how to utilize it....

Connecticut Women are as close to a lock as you're ever likely to get in sports. You speak about next year, let's talk about this year. They probably have 3 AA's again in "The Wonder Twins," Samuelson and Collier and Gabby Williams, whom Jay Bilas described as the "most complete player in college basketball." Their current seniors, all two of them, if they win 10 more games will have a career record of 155-1 and 4 Nattys and have never lost a game at home. Next year they will bring in the #1 recruiting class in the nation, including national Prep POY Megan Walker a 6'1" wing, as well as five star guards Lexi Gordon, Mikayla Coombs and Andra Espinosa-Hunter, all between 5'8" and 5'11". They also have two transfers; former ACC POY Azura Stevens, 6'6" and former All-SEC 2nd Teamer  Batuoly Camara, 6'2". If you couldn't get them this year, with the brutal schedule they played and after graduating the first three selections in the WNBA Draft, then how do you get them next year? I'm a Lady Bucks die-hard, I just hope KMitch comes back for her senior season, balls out and breaks Kelsey Plum's scoring record. 

Comment 15 Feb 2017

As long as Kevin McGuff is coaching this team, there's no chance. If you think Connecticut is great this year, just wait until next year. They add Azura Stevens who was ACC POY at Duke, they add Batuoly Camara, an all-SEC player from Kentucky, who are sitting out as transfers. They add the consensus #1 HS player in Megan Walker, as well as three other top 20 recruits. They may not lose a game until 2020.....

It's amazing that more people on Message Boards aren't paid millions of dollars to coach football teams, since it's such an easy thing to do. The Atlanta Falcons had a record-setting offense this season, doing exactly what they did to get them the lead they enjoyed. How about the defense getting a stop, just one, does anyone believe that could have made a difference? 

Comment 23 Jan 2017

After Zwick, who ended up being probably the all-time bust in program history given the hype he got, I'd have to say Jamaal Berry. He was one of those Florida recruits that was a must-get for tOSU and he didn't do much at all.....

Kiper, Jr. is the progenitor of this "cottage industry" he makes a great living at it and that's great for him, but no one in the NFL or College takes him McShay or any of these other knobs seriously. What the hell is a 'Draft guru? anyway? If any of them had a shred of credibility an NFL Owner would be paying them millions. Kiper, Jr. and the rest are simply fans with too much time on their hands and the analysis they provide carries no more weight than any group of guys sitting around a Barbershop or a BDubs discussing sports. Real NFL Scouts and Personnel people have talked to UFM and told him where his players are likely to go and to whom. 

NFL teams don't draft for fans, they draft players that they believe fit their scheme. Teams that change coaching staffs frequently have bad drafts and bad teams because they've previously drafted players for a scheme they don't use anymore. A prime example is Josh Norman, in a man scheme he's not a lock-down guy so much, is he? It's silly season in the NFL and Kiper, Jr. and guys of his ilk will keep spewing garbage as long as fans keep listening and shelling out their hard-earned dollars for those bullshit Draft Reports....

Isn't it great that for once none of the questions involve who's going to play defensive tackle or the D-Line rotation. For you recruitniks, forget about Marvin Wilson, he's not coming to C-Bus!!! Players at that position from his part of the world go to SEC schools, almost exclusively and while he'll toy with your emotions until NLOI Day and Birm and the rest of the recruiting guys will speculate for days on end about what the tea leaves say or something they hear from a friend of his HS Coach or his cousin's, brother's, nephew's girlfriend's hairdresser who lives next door to his next-door neighbor, he's going to LSU, book it....

Comment 05 Jan 2017

You stole my thunder BR, but I agree 100%. I don't really follow recruiting until NLOI Day, but this fantasy of Marvin Wilson has gone far enough. He's all-LSU, all the time, get used to it, I don't have any inside dope and I don't have any sources in Houston just that players from that part of the country always seem to wind up at LSU. Grown and Sexy coming back will more than make up for it though, he was on the sideline for the Fiesta Bowl and he and Mickey Marotti have obviously become better acquainted since the injury, he is ripped....
