Good Luck to him at UGA.  RB is not a position I am super concerned about, but would have been a good addition.

Hearing the raw excitement and fire from the new coaching staff has me cautiously optimistic for this year and very optimistic for future years.

Someone mentioned in another thread that they weren't sure the Bucks would ever get back to 09-13 years where we were right around 30+ wins per year.  If Holtmann can win 23, 22, and 25 games at Butler...I would imagine if he gets better recruits, etc. that we would easily be back to the near 30+ win mark at some point.

 Holtmann cannot meet with him because he's already signed with a different school. The only thing he could've done was talk to him before he left. After that, it's all on Kyle Young. If he wants to follow his coach, he needs to ask out of his letter of intent, then commit and sign to Ohio State. Ohio State can't have any contact with him until that point.

I love the article and the energy coming from the team.  One point of concern is Dave Richardson being retained, but based on early indications, if Holtmann doesn't like what is coming out of the weight room, I guarantee he(Richardson) wont be there long.

As for building trust and renewed excitement, I hope that continues and leads to good things this year, not just in the future.

There is definite work to do and I am waiting to see if we add more players to this class before I set my actual expectations for the W/L of the season.  Yes, we lost Lyle and Thompson, but we gain K. Wesson and Funderburk (hopefully).  

I think with the current roster, we can at least go .500, but won't say for sure until a little later this year.

Comment 16 Jun 2017

I would agree that we really won't know who is in the class until they sign on the dotted line.  First, Ahrens from what I can find was not offered by Holtmann when he was at Butler.  As I said though, IF we get Young this year, and Holtmann wants Hunter who he did heavily recruit and who is rated higher than Ahrens...I doubt a coach is going to bring in 3 SF in a 2 year period.    

Based on those assumptions, I don't think Ahrens gets back in the class...but I am not Chris Holtmann, so I have no idea what he will do.

Comment 16 Jun 2017

I don't think Ahrens stays in the class either based on the players that are being offered, especially if we pick up Young this year.  

I feel bad for him if he doesn't but it was by his own choosing.
