    It's been brought up, but most of Steve's recruits have either left early because they were good enough to or told they were good enough to, or they have left because they were not good enough. There is no problem with having great recruits but if your role guys are not Big 12 caliber, you're not going to succeed. They're either going to stay here and we won't be good, or they're going to transfer elsewhere.

    Maybe the new class and the new transfers will fit well with one another but I think that's only going to happen if Steve can land Big 12 ready guys, which are going to be hard to come by. It seems as though Steve has gotten in early on a couple of them, which is promising, but doesn't mean we're going to end up with them.

    Steve's offenses have been pretty free flowing honestly. He doesn't stick you in a stagnant offense where you're robotic, rather he runs quick hitters to let guys make plays. Last year's largest issue on offense was we had a bunch of combo guards and a bunch of centers. We really didn't have a 3 or 4 man, and after Tyrese went down, we didn't have a PG. When Tyrese was healthy, our offense wasn't THAT bad, but we weren't making any shots, and a ton of those shots were wide freaking open. We didn't have anyone outside of Tyrese and Bolton who could effectively take the ball to the basket, and Tyrese is so unselfish that even if he did take it to the rack, he'd see someone open and pass it to them which usually led to a missed shot.

    One is the obvious one that we all thought would have left as soon as the season ended. The other is likely a big man

    Steve Phrom recruits like the Cleveland Browns. May hit a couple big ones but misses so often the team sucks and has lots of turn over and unrest.

    I don’t want to be the Cleveland Browns of Big 12 basketball.

    I don't think Grill leaving is a serious issue as far as impacting what this team's ceiling can be, but what really is a kick to the nads is the fact that if we couldn't already say it, we sure can now: the 2019 recruiting class is the worst in the program's history. Just a complete waste and lost year. More players will be added in the coming years, but right now Tre Jackson is a lone ranger in the class of 2023. You simply can't have this kind of attrition at this level. Prohm faces a monster of an uphill battle now, as he tries to recover from one of the worst seasons in program history, and possibly worst recruiting class in program history. I'll always cheer for the Cyclones regardless of the coach, but this needs to change dramatically for the better if prohm is going to survive.

    Grill, at best, probably a role player on this team. I would have been ok with him being a 4 year role player honestly. Maybe he never averages more than 7 ppg in a season, but he could've been a nice guy to have off the bench for energy and shooting. What I don't understand is what does Caleb want in all of this? Does he want to be the star? One would think being a contributing role player on a team he grew up cheering for would be enough for him. If it's a deal where he didn't think he could compete with what prohm is bringing in next season, then good riddance. Regardless of the reason why, I always hate to see people go.

    Listening to the title IX pod, they mentioned Jay is doing a podcast with Conditt Sr and will be posted soon. If so, it’d shock me if GC was another transfer

    At least they were good in the 1940s and 1950s. We were not.

    When I posted that Grill, Lewis, and Zion will not be here next season, I was scoffed at like I didn’t know what I was talking about. Funny how things change.

    The LeBron/Kyrie/Love Cavs were a pretty great team.

    Great enough to beat the Splash Brothers Dubs once, a historically great team, one year, and still challenge them with depleted rosters other years.

    What is going on with this training staff? Two players playing with a broken wrist and another with a concussion this season.
