I think OSU BBall is a great gig but Brad Stevens is not coming here. He is head coach of Eastern Conference #1 seed and runners-up with the #1 pick on a young roster. He won't be the coach here. 

Donovan - there is always a chance. He's in a tough situation in OKC with Westbrook potentially leaving and Warriors locking up the West for the foreseeable future. OSU has resources to come close to salary (Don't think OSU is giving out 6 million/year when competing with Thad's buy-out)

More realistically - Tony Bennett, Buzz Williams, Steve Wojciechowski (Marquette), Danny Hurley (Rhode Island) - think all of these guys are in play, young up and coming, potential for great recruiting.

Very outside the box guys that I would be very happy are Buzz Williams and Dana Altman but both are very unlikely. Don't think Shaka is looking like a good hire (unlimited resources at less of a rebuild at Texas and finished last)

Gene mentioned recruiting as one of the foundational reasons for letting Thad go, so doubt it will be someone like Holtman or Kelsey.

As crazy as this sounds Donovan, Sean Miller, and Mack are in play here. Donovan the most likely and I cannot believe I just typed that. Mack is a Xavier alum and Miller is in a good situation with next to no ties to OSU or Big Ten having to coach against his brother at the school that fired his mentor.

I think Conley will have a better career simply because he will be drafted later and onto a better team. Lattimore is maybe more talented or has a higher ceiling but will likely be drafted by a bad team and is likely to be exposed more often. 

Not based in any reason or logic. Just my two cents. Hoping both have great careers! Titans could use both and/or Hooker

Wow John Dirksen?! Good for him. You know when you take a kid like that from Mercer County, you are getting a winner that knows how to work. Would love to see him camp and earn an offer. MAC! MAC! MAC!

Any list for me starts and ends with Gregg Marshall from Wichita St. Someone like Jeff Capel could get a look. Archie Miller and Chris Jent would be okay, prefer to get a change in culture. 

Comment 18 Jan 2017

That's a great point. I did miss Kierre. Not sure if he's a true TE or the H-back flex. So the TE/FB version of the h-back.

Comment 15 Jan 2017

A lot more rhythm short throws from the offense this year with deep to mid crossing routes to soften the box. JT I hate to say just doesn't have the arm strength for the outright deep ball. Wilson hopefully will encorporate more screens and swing passes. Short accurate throws to get the ball in space.

Comment 15 Jan 2017

I think TE is faux thin. The reason I say that is we have Alexander, Hausmann, and Farrell there with two being true FR last year. Expect Hausmann to push for some major time.

Comment 12 Jan 2017

Loving was bad. If this team wants to win moving forward the offense has to go through Lyle and Thompson. Loving and Williams spot up and Tate high post/cutter. Thompson is probably our best player, the offense should run through our 7 footer in the post.

Matta deserves 1 more year to right the ship. But if gone at the end of this year --> Gregg Marshall from wich st is at the top of my list if I'm Gene Smith

Comment 17 Dec 2016

I love Marta and think Jent would be good. Gregg Marshall would be great. Matta just hasn't been the same since his health (back) has gotten worse. In my mind he can coach here until his contract is up barring some unforeseen run or title game appearance in the next 3-4 years. If he steps down or resigns. Greg Marshall, Jent, then Archie or Chris Mack

With the last two commitments pledging before even visiting is that the trend we will be seeing with only a few spots remaining? Kids committing to make sure they aren't left out? 

Glad to have Dobbins and Haskell in the fold and having an on campus visit after a commitment is likely to strengthen their pledges but was definitely curious.
