UK? Really? If that is what he wants then he can settle for 4th best. I seriously don't care one way or the other in regard to Blue but a recruit choosing UK over OSU is pathetic.
I get your point but adding a 4 star player to 2017 class is pretty damn impressive work for a new staff.
Welcome Casey. Hope you post often.
A lot of people, including myself, would like to see Goodwin at OSU. Not sure that qualifies as fawning over. I seriously couldn't care less about Bazley or what kind of career he has. The fact that Holtmann didn't go after him says all anyone needs to know about this kid and OSU. Was what he said true? Very likely but it did not need to be said by a recruit. We all think things we never say outloud, especially in public. He should have just kept his mouth shut and decommitted. It is called class and manners. This kid showed neither.
I think OSU fans reflect the general population. If any of the blue blood hoops schools had football programs that contended for a NC most years you would see them quickly become football schools. Football is just more popular. However, I don't understand why some people seem to think you can't be passionate about both. Maybe I just have more free time than most. I have been a huge OSU hoops fan for years but will admit I have not enjoyed the recent teams. I probably watched half of the games last year. It wasn't about the losing, it was about how unlikable the team was. It was bittersweet to see Thad go but I don't think I could have tolerated watching the program continue down the same path. I don't expect great things from this year's team but I wouldn't be surprised to see them pull some upsets. At least this year the low expectations are the result of the program going in the right direction.
The one thing I hope for this year is better effort
You and me both. This team may lose more games than last season's squad but I anticipate them being much more enjoyable to watch. I can live with the growing pains.
What is going on
Well obviously Funderburk couldn't get his shit together. Beverly's high school coach was recently hired as an assistant at North Carolina St. He didn't have a relationship with this staff so I understand his decision.
This staff isn't afraid to make noise. Hope the new strength and conditioning coach is hired soon as our guys are going to have to play a lot of minutes.
We'll likely never know whose decision it was. If Beverly thought he would not get much playing time later in his career he might have wanted to leave now and not waste a year with a transfer.
I know Thad coached there but we didn't steal him from Butler.
Why in hell would someone spend the time to give a detailed update of UM's recruiting on an OSU forum? Makes no sense at all.
There is always that chance but Scoonie bleeds Scarlet and Gray. I talked with Dominiq's mom Nikki about a year ago and she said he is a Kentucky fan. Hopefully he has matured since then ;)
Completely agree UA. I also think many are underestimating Goodwin's skill set. In the last 2 years he has significantly improved his overall game.
Other than Holtmann who did we steal?
What OSU and Butler thing?
