Ask yourself: “Is this really what we have to do to win?”
These OADs are the “fools gold” we’ve all been talking about for a few years now.
It’s the “let’s take the lazy approach” to college basketball. After all, it is hard to find good players who will work their butts off through college. And I mean WORK! I mean maximizing their time to make it all about basketball and academics.
We get a team of these guys and we beef up our developmental coaching, we are going to win a lot of games. More than we win now.
I don’t know how much more of this OAD drama I can handle. The quality of D1 has dropped so far it is unrecognizable.
But until we change to a true developmental program, I’ll cheer on the big talent. It’s about all we have now.
I don’t want us to become another Duke. Duke was the laughing stock of college basketball last year… losing with all that NBA talent. Coach K looked like a washed up coach. He could hardly have wished for a better scenario than he had.
I miss real basketball!
