re: Alabama Basketball | Off-season & Recruiting - GenesChin
[quote]Yeah, it's pretty wild that a college player would get wrecked by 4 HoF centers that have like a dozen NBA MVP awards between them.[/quote] :Lol:...

I normally would root for the 11 seed underdog but it felt wrong when it was a blue blood like UCLA. Wild game and credit to UCLA. Cronin had them playing at an elite level in the tournament...

[quote]If he want to go home, he would've jumped on that Marquette job. [/quote] In a vacuum Alabama is a better job than Marquette. Without extenuating circumstances or the desire to coach at a school exclusively dedicated to bball, you don't leave Alabama for Marquette. Wisconsin job should ...

[quote]I am fricking stunned that this guy shows up less than a week after our season ends. Stunned. [/quote] I came around in December and asked how things were going too....I’m just not on the rant much anymore. I legit came in and congratulated you on a truly awesome season. Not sure ho...

re: Alabama Basketball | Off-season & Recruiting - GenesChin
[quote]Not sure belittling or outright bashing our players [/quote] I did not mean “role player” in a derogatory way. He was a defensive stopper which is an essential role. He wasn’t a Lebron “carry Delonte West to a finals “ centerpiece though I still think if he had 4 years under Oats he co...

re: Walker Kessler - UNC - GenesChin
There was a rumor awhile back that Powells issue at Auburn had to do with a fight at skybar where he got a skull fracture. Would make sense why Kessler is a little concerned...

re: Alabama Basketball | Off-season & Recruiting - GenesChin
[quote]without Herb,[/quote] Herb is going to be a loss. He felt like he fit well into the CBB role player mold. You just don’t find too many 6’8 guys who can be a secondary ball handler and passing playmaker, gritty defender both inside and out and alright shooter as a senior. He’s the type ...

re: Alabama Basketball | Off-season & Recruiting - GenesChin
Also, I was always pretty positive about the Oatz N Hoez hire. I've genuinely been pretty pro/optimistic Alabama basketball other than saying Avery Johnson sucked as a coach. He had pieces to play the Mick Cronin suffocating defense 45-42 W type games but instead just potatoed I've been a Herbie...

re: Alabama Basketball | Off-season & Recruiting - GenesChin
[quote] and Auburn is good again.[/quote] I follow CBB well beyond Auburn and have barely watched a game. I'm arguably as big a Zona / Georgetown fan as I am an Auburn fan. It is just my sports following & interest whether college/pro has waned a lot since COVID rolled around. Not sure I'll ever ...

re: Alabama Basketball | Off-season & Recruiting - GenesChin
Congrats on the great season! I haven't been following CBB much this season (barely even Auburn) do to IRL stuff but wanted to tip the cap to a great yr 2 for Oatz 'n Hoez Also, fricking absurd that Baylor is in the Final 4 in large part due to former UA commit Jared Butler (key offensive player)...

re: Auburn Pro Day numbers - GenesChin
[quote] That is a great move by Auburn, especially with Covid as it limits travel of scouts. Would be great to see SEC schools allow smaller school kids to join the pro days. [/quote] I'd imagine it is in Auburn's interest since it likely brings more scouts to our pro days. Also can't hurt to d...

re: Harsin contract: 6 years, 31.5m (+ Assistants) - GenesChin
[quote]I do think at major colleges, if you want to compete, they all have to include that type of payout if fired.[/quote] Probably right. It is really hard to imagine we are pulling Harsin across the country from his alma mater BSU, which he clearly loved and basically has a near lifetime guara...

So Cooper doesn't qualify on minutes but his Assist Rate per KenPom would be #1 at 57.5 nationally. Next highest is around 49. Powell is #73 nationally at 31 His fouls drawn per 40 would be top ~5 Nationally ...

[quote] I knew the ISU record was not a true reflection on him as a coach. [/quote] He has a lifetime record of 38-38 including arguably the worst season in AU history. Guy is a class act, I know him since he still lives in the Auburn community. Hell of a guy, great D Coordinator, terrible Hea...

re: #tAuburnBasketball Thread - GenesChin
[quote]Now do Chris Paul.. who is a much better comparison. [/quote] Chris Paul made 3 All NBA Defensive teams and is better athlete as well as shooter. The comparison for Cooper right now would be Trae Young who is also defense optional but elite distributor/ball handler. If Cooper can s...

[quote]You just described Rondo.[/quote] Rondo is a bigger, better athlete than Cooper, great defender when engaged and peaked pre 3pt revolution. Hard to see Cooper undersized, without a great 3pt shot and not a great defender making the jump to the NBA after 1 year unless he is okay being...
