Interesting thoughts, Marty. Probably something to that. I do think though that even where there are players that don't have the normal attributes or play a normal position, there should still be improvement from one year to the next.

Niles Numbers are definitely not the entire story I agree with that. But weren't you the same guy who told us Dyson can't shoot from deep because of his three point shooting % as a senior in hs and not actually watching him play? With TV and Riley, we get both -- we have watched them play and have l...

Good point on the injury for TV. Perhaps that did set him back from becoming what he could've been. As for expecting too much in terms of player improvement there is a bit of truth to that in some areas. Some players have already maxed out their abilities -- Freeman is a good example of that. Barbee...

Ok. I guess we just disagree. I looked at Vinson as a freshman, shooting 46% from the floor, averaging almost 10 points a game, 5 1/2 rebounds a game in 25 minutes. Those are very promising numbers for a freshman are they not? His sophomore year was a huge disappointment and while his #'s rebounded ...

My point had nothing to do with the expectations for TV and Freddie coming out of high school. It is based on my expectations from their play during their freshman years. I expected more out of their careers after their freshman seasons. Freddie was disappointing for 2 1/2 years and TV turned into a...

I think the player himself and the coaching staff/program as a whole are equally important to a player's development. Obviously the player himself has to want to improve, but it is the job of the coaching staff to give the player the tools to improve. And even if the player doesn't want to improve i...

Plays with another target, guard CJ Anderson. Would be a good get, but seems like he will be SEC-bound.

With Putney, I would just like him to do other things on offense besides launch threes and throw down alley oop dunks. He's obviously got the length and athletic ability to shoot over most defenders. Part of that is on him and part of that is on the offensive gameplan. And on defense his length and ...

Teams shot 42% from the floor and 32% from three point land against us -- those are pretty good numbers (they are worse than our numbers on offense and I didn't consider us a very good shooting team). Although I guess when you look at the shooting numbers in college hoops as a whole, everybody kind ...

Turner moved back to '15. I guess Kanter is a '14 target now.

Let's Give Them Something To Talk About, Part II: Next Year

Next year is a crucial year for the program with the conference unrest, another year of heightened expectations, and the final year of Chaz. I put together a list of 7 players/things/ideas I think are going to be critical. 1) Cady Big and Strong: During A-10 play, it looked like the lights were real...

about 20 minutes or so. 20 minutes I'll never have back but that's ok.

I haven't seen any of these guys play and have no idea of the actual level of interest (both ways) so I feel a bit ridiculous talking about this but I generally feel ridiculous talking about most of the stuff that interests me so... BIGS Potential Options: Chukwu - sounds raw and bigger schools seem...

Highly doubt we get this kid, but he sounds like a real point guard.

This is a bit disappointing. Thought we might have gotten this kid with the early notice, the connection to Williamson, and the up-and-down style of play. Sounds like X was in him early too though and who knows, maybe the conference upheaval swung the kid towards them. Wasn't concerned about the Wil...
