I feel better about Guerrier, likely were in top 3 before committing to Syracuse. His game seems to fit well with what we run. The need for a stretch 4 is there as well.

Guerrier ain't happening. Ask yourself when's the last time Illinois beat Oregon for a recruit that had both as viable options going into decision day?

Do you mean you’ve never been correct, or just that you haven’t been right since 1963? 😉🤣

I WAS right on Tyler Ulis that went on to Kentucky and NBA. Saw him play several times in Chicago Hts. That one was by only sleeper pick that made it big.

Eh. Distance has been an issue with his family before wrt Oregon. I'd assume they have a better chance between sustained recent success, stability, and Mennenga, but "ain't happening" when you're in the last round of choices just seems like excessive pessimism to me. And this is coming from a dude with clinical depression.

Have a feeling Chet is going to replace some of the recruiting lost. I just wish we could get a second Asst. onboard with strong recruiting background. I know that these things take time but it is dragging out a little too long.

I really don't think the opportunity cost of the delay is much. So I don't think this is "too long". Like most, I'm concerned about getting a top guy in here. From our view, the "delay" means that we're not getting what we want. The reality is likely different. While a few obvious choices apparently have opted out, there are plenty of people that could end up filling this that will make me happy at the onset. Alexander doesn't thrill me but I'd be happy. Not many guys out there that would thrill me.

Wins and losses in the future. The next staff will be weighed by their tourney success. I don't want to be thrilled now. I want to be thrilled in March. (better yet, April)

FWIW UGA related accounts are what Bergeron has followed most recently on twitter.
