I'm gonna go with this is a reaction to Bamford's tweet more than the announcement of the new coach itself. Like he's on the look out. Or he knew ahead of time and was just teasing his followers.

Great Hire! Stoked. Recruits Australia very well. Hello, pipeline.
Recruits Australia well -- see St. Mary's. I LOVE this hire.
To play devils advocate, he's only recruited 2 Australians in 5 years and in 5 years has never recruited better than a 2 star player to Winthrop.

However, I have no doubt that this man can coach. His success in the Big South says it all. Plus, I have seen only very positive remarks from college basketball analysts about the hire.

LETS GO UMASS!!

It's a tweet that NBA players would make around the trade deadline whenever big news or big rumors were around the corner. Like ohhh damn, I'm interesting and my eyes are wandering, I'm looking out!

Hopefully he doesn't throw out a bunch of emoji's before any news breaks about him staying or going. He'll give Umass fans a heart attack. Please no hour glass emoji's a la Isaiah Thomas.

Really happy with this hire. I think Shrewsbury would have turned more heads among casual fans, but Kelsey is more proven and a safer candidate to succeed.

I'll echo the thoughts earlier that his proven ability to promote programs OFF the court is a huge bonus. The program simply needs new life, and I think this is a nice boost.

If the players don't come back to play for a coach like Kelsey, then I frankly don't think they're worth catering to in the first place.

That helps a little bit. I think. Sorry, I guess I am just an old man.

I need to see evidence of this supposed Australia pipeline. Xavier Cooks – absolutely, no question, great get for Winthrop. But before we anoint him, who else are we talking about?

Winthrop's Big South championship game from this year. In the first few minutes you'll see something you didn't in Amherst the last 9 years: A ZONE OFFENSE!

Found a couple things on a Clemson board while stalking for info on Kelsey:

"As a Winthrop alum, I have met coach Kelsey many times. He's a great guy. High energy. Takes time to talk with everyone and creates events to get students hyped for the games. Not sure if he's a big enough hire for Clemson but he's gonna be a great hire for someone when they discover him."

"Met him at a Winthrop recruitment event last year. I talked to him for nearly an hour. That guy is awesome! By the end of the night, he took the stage and knew the name of everyone in the room...and something about them. Even my name, which is Dekle. He sold me on Winthrop that night, and my daughter, a freshman there, goes to every home game."

Best case scenario: Pat Kelsey can be our Gregg Marshall. Also an ex-Winthrop coach. Oooooo la la ;)
