He has to find some guards. This team has none right now and Mashburn isn’t coming back.
Not going to be high end of B1G, cup board's really bare, El Amin is in the portal and wants to play another year, that is the type of player you can get and are going to need.He has to find some guards. This team has none right now and Mashburn isn’t coming back.
Well, considering we were one of the worst 3-point shooting teams in the country yes Battle is an instant upgrade.Here I’ll fix it: Do these two players scream improvement?
Back the question I was responding to... I’m not on Johnson’s back, I’ll root for him to succeed... maybe even buy season tickets for the first time this year - but these two players don’t do anything to ease my unease at this hire. Of course he’s going to fill out a roster with scholarship players. This was my first post on the hire, so I’m not one of the folks bashing it on the internet.
I just don’t think signing these two guys does anything to suggest he’ll be a good coach or recruiter. It doesn’t necessarily suggest that latter either.
He could be, but so could anybody else they brought in. Who knows, he has no head coaching experience to base an opinion on. He's been an assistant under unsuccessful coaches, and others have said that you can't pin that on Johnson, either. So basically, the only thing we can pin on him is the point that he was brought here to be a good local recruiter.What if just maybe he’s actually a good coach and not just a recruiter?
This is hard to know. He gave really generic answers to his style of play and improving 3 point shooting percentage. "Live in the gym and get more reps" doesn't fix fundamentally flawed mechanics.What if just maybe he’s actually a good coach and not just a recruiter?
Oh no... now we have New Mexico to contend with for our home town players! /sOnly one NCAA team reaching out to Fox:
maybe it’s semantics, but I wouldn’t call this great. I’d call it filling out a roster. Nothing about these two players is going to get me excited, or give me hope that he lands big ten caliber recruits out of high school. These guys are arguably not big ten caliber after several years in college.
great maybe if we were Saint Thomas
Holy inefficient...Would rather we struggle with a young guy than have a guy come in who is going to jack a bunch of shots up. Every offense is different but these don't look greatNot going to be high end of B1G, cup board's really bare, El Amin is in the portal and wants to play another year, that is the type of player you can get and are going to need.
