    A big part of the success of a college program is being able to recruit guys in when there's competition. Winning helps, but I think some coaches are just able to draw guys in regardless of the talent that players are going to compete against for minutes.

    Did Winston steal your girlfriend? The Big Ten coaches unanimously selected him to the first team all big ten team. Between the games they had against MSU and the game film they watched, they saw most every minute he played. Now you're calling out people because they think the same thing...

    He was big ten player of the year. He turns the ball over a lot. He gets a ton of assists. You're certainly entitled to your opinion, but you're in a distinct minority. Just guessing, but I'm betting most of the people voting on these awards have seen him more than you.

    no, you didn't misread. You kinda have to look deep to get the info. for hotter recruits, it's not a big deal because there's plenty of activity. for recruitments like this, you have to be careful because it languishes for years.

    I wouldn't put it that way. But it does demonstrate that he's got the ability to connect.

    Well if all of our information is coming from YouTube, isn't it safe to assume that all the staff's info is coming from there too? What makes you think they might have other avenues to evaluate players?

    That would require Miller to not sign in the fall. Possible of course, but the first signing date is essentially after a game or two.

    Precisely. Of course this type of modification happens sometimes. Great shooters step back and get guarded closely. Chet Frazier is laid off.
