    Weber wanted him but the fan base wouldn't let him make an offer

    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.

    I believe this is when this board started to go crazy over too many mid range jump shots. It's obvious basketball coaches across the NCAA are listening to what we're saying.

    Smart coaches will have their defenses play the player. Why defend the line if the guy can't hit from there? You guard players how they deserve to be guarded. If a guy is capable of hitting from the longer distance, then you'd need to guard him at the longer distance even if he was 2 ft...

    If staff wants him, great. But I won't get very excited about adding a junior who averaged 9ppg. obviously, he brings depth which is important. but the stats aren't much to get giddy over.

    My guess is he saw it. I guess it's how you define the Mendoza line for recruiting. If it's purely a percentage, then I'd first say I didn't care and then I'd follow up with how we actually can't quantify it very well. If it's about quality of class, we clearly aren't anywhere close to the...

    Recruiting isn't much about compelling cases. It's about making a guy want to play for you even when a compelling case can be made for another school.

    Kinda funny because I don't consider the lack of guards "understandable" nor acceptable. We have to keep stacking guards. If we had played well this last season we would be adding one I'm sure.

    Basketball recruiting isn't about percentages. It's about the quality of the class. Who cares if you land 4 out of 12 if all 4 players are mediocre. We have a top 50 player. That alone puts us in the midpoint of recruiting.

    i didnt say don't worry. Anyone below the Mendoza line is basically among the worst hitters in baseball. we are so far above that measure it's ridiculous. far below what I want, but hardly as bad as you're saying.

    Hard to say we're below the Mendoza line when people project us in the top half of the conference.
