It does matter and they do owe a little explanation when you hire a guy who seems to be under qualified for the position. It matters when you ask people for donations and to buy season tickets.No, it's does he win. I don't care if they're all from North Korea. Too many people have a hard on for Coyle. Who cares who he interviewed or what he said at the press conference. Coyle put his neck on the line with the hire. That's all that matters. If Ben doesn't work out in a few years, Coyle and his reputation will take a hit - maybe he will lose his job (but only if PJ doesn't work out). But who cares what he said in a press conference. Like it or not, athletic directors don't owe explanations to fans on why they hired someone. They make the decision they feel is best and they live with it.
Combo Guard...yes you are all right Point just being that lots of combo guards can play point...which is why they aren't shooting guards.I am taking the term 'control guard' to mean additional ball handlers who can assist in controlling the ball, bringing it up the court, etc. As opposed to PG, who runs the offense and primarily distributes the ball. Am I right, CoMn? Close, but missing nuances? Or a straight up whiff?
Porndog mentioned Harold Yu, a 7'3" center prospect, in post 1055. Here's one of several available videos for Yu:Looked at Yu's highlight reel and came away somewhat impressed by his shooting stroke, footwork and shot blocking ability. Whether we want to invest 4 years on this guy is another question since he may be viewed as a project (Konate, Gaston) by many. He already looks farther along than Freeman so I'd be inclined to take a shot.
He must be pretty good, he is the only one on his team that score in the video....lol. Reminds me of Randy Breuer with that 3 inch vertical leap. He look kinda soft and slow.
This kid would get destroyed in the B1G way too soft, he makes Robbins look like Thor.
We don't need them that badI mean I would love to be wrong on this but I think he would get swallowed up by the physicality of the B1G. His shot release looks slow, he looks like he could block shots but the time it took for him to get there on the defensive rotation tells me that B1G guards would be at the cup before he could rotate over there. I know we need bodies though.
