    1/9 Games

    The problem in the Texas game was not only were they without Dean, the best player, but then also didn't have Stokes. It will be interesting to check in and see how they do the rest of the conference season as they slowly get healthy.

    ESPN's Top College Hoops Coaches

    First I never said there was an absence of talent, I questioned your "riches of talent" statement. Weber's first year at KSU he inherited a team that went to the NCAA tournament the season before as a 8 seed won one game and finished 5th in the conference. A team that lost it leading rebounder...

    ESPN's Top College Hoops Coaches

    If you use the criteria of the present and projected future then Weber would seem to be about right. Again forget what happened at Illinois and look at what he did last year. He had almost the exact same roster issues as we had yet he got his team to the tourney with a little room to spare. He...

    ESPN's Top College Hoops Coaches

    There are usually a million and one reasons why list like this have no credibility. The fact that it has Weber at #40, especially with their stated criteria of "where the program that they coach now is headed, present achievements not past performance", doesn't seem to be one of them. This past...

    2/15 Games

    What world are you living in? Baylor is absolutely more talented! There is a reason that they were picked pre-season to finish in the top 3 of the Big 12. There is a reason they had 2 players picked pre-season to be all Big12 as opposed to KSU having one player picked as just honorable mention...

    2/8 Games

    That really isn't true! There are 5 guys still on the roster who were Martin's players. Of those only 3 start, the same number of Weber's recruits who start for us. He has no remaining point gaurd on the roster from Martin and no player over 6'7" left. And no one ever called the players Martin...

    For some reason I can go in and edit my posy but any way the full context of what I was saying was this: Ok, maybe the problem is we have 2 different views of what 'similar' means! So I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that most people wouldn't consider inheriting a roster that contained 4 out...

    Ok, maybe the problem is we have 2 different views of what 'similar' means! So I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that most people wouldn't consider inheriting a roster that contained 4 out of 5 starters as players that would play in the NBA as similar to inheriting a roster which if lucky, wil...

    Exactly! which is something he seems to have learned from so far with how he is recruiting at KSU so far.

    The Bruce Weber Thread

    Yes I do keep bringing up the ranking because the rankings do matter in determining talent especially of underclassmen players. With that said even if you ignore the rankings the talent level and expectations for the teams weren't anywhere close to similar excpet in a superficial way. Both teams...

    The Bruce Weber Thread

    You are correct it was 1 McDonalds AA not 2. I was thinking of Rich McBrides earlier high school ranking but nonetheless what he inherited at Illinois was a roster full of highly ranked players who had played for a conference title. That isn't anywhere comparable to what he took over at KSU. As...

    The Bruce Weber Thread

    They were a pretty decent team last year, no more no less. They brought back 4 of 5 starters from a team that finished 5th in the conference and one no conference tourney games and 1 NCAA tourney game. From that team they lost thier 2nd leading scorer, top rebounder and # 3 guy in minutes...

    The Bruce Weber Thread

    I agree with this completely. It's why I believe he wasn't a good fit for Illinois but will have good success at KSU. At Illinois you have to recruit some of the Chicago kids that are highly ranked. You just have to no way around it. At KSU they don't have a hotbed talent area that they are...

    The Bruce Weber Thread

    I'm still not quite sure why so many seem to want to believe this based off of what happened here. When he cam here her inherited a roster of a couple McDonalds All-Americans and several top 100 guys so it was easy to see his recruiting wouldn't keep him at the leve of talent that he inherited...
