    To me, it helps tremendously that we'll be looking for one big piece, rather than several (in all likelihood).

    Why if you are jumping to defend him would you do so by listing the negatives? (I'm not defending him, or the opposite. Just seems an odd question.)

    This class will be a big help, this year's team lacks length but it also lacks athleticism. Being small is fine, if you are quick and athletic or can shoot, none of those areas is really a strength for us. I think the incoming class will upgrade the talent in the program but the bigger impact will be with their size and athleticism. That goes for Johnson as well but I think his impact will be more evident in the box score than the younger guys, even though I expect them to be productive as well.

    i don't want to spend the next 9 months arguing every point, but I just don't get the faith/optimism around improved defense just because players are long/athletic.

    THT, LW, Lewis, Griffin, Burton, etc are all stud athletes and their defense stunk under prohm. few players mastered the "slow close out with hands at your side" better than nick babb. Solo is a 4th year junior and he still gets dunked on from pick and rolls.

    i mean devon dotson felt disrespected because he thought we were intentionally leaving him open....and we were trying!!

    good defense requires discipline, practice, teamwork, fundamentals, repetition, etc.

    we have so far to go on defense...i hope we figure it out next year...i'm just very, very skeptical, that is all.

    How do these transfers keep falling into Freds lap? I was told it's nearly impossible to get good transfers anymore.

    I would have taken King, but his 3P% worried me about him coming here.

    Can you imagine going from a Wisconsin team to a Fred-coached team?

    "You mean I can shoot the ball with more than 3 seconds left on the shot clock?"

    On a positive note, I won't have to dig around some other website to find out how he's doing at Nebraska. Someone on here will be keeping tabs of every point he scores and be quick to post all about it.

    Agree. And Wisconsin has not missed a beat since he's left.

    Wait-- do I see some actual "we didn't want him anyway" responses? We need an immediate impact transfer. I imagine this kid will be immediately eligible. He was the leading scorer on a team headed for the NCAA tournament team. Our staff had a previous relationship with him from recruiting him hard out of high school. This is literally the exact type of player we need for next year.

    I was not one of them but there were plenty that didn't want him to begin with.

    Are you talking about responses from today? Because there are none on here.
