This Guy (http://illinois.scout.com/a.z?s=169&p=8&c=1&nid=5387828) is on an official visit this weekend.  I would be surprised if he leaves Manhattan without pulling the trigger.  There has also been speculation that this guy (http://espn.go.com/mens-college-basketball/player/_/id/56647/ibby-djimde) may transfer and follow oscar - this seems less likely.

we really need him. we'll have nothing from the class of 2019. unless murphy can actually stay healthy. like when pack/bradford/miguel become super studs, probably their junior year, it would have been great to have both gordons and murphy as seniors. that is a potential top 10 team. instead we'd only have one of them, and the biggest question mark of the 3. then we'd have to depend on the new guys and 2021 was a big whiff.

If we replaced him with a halfway decent shooter then it would be an upgrade.
Title: Re: Potential transfers and new guys
Post by: ChiComCat on March 16, 2021, 02:23:37 PM
Dajuan has constantly felt to me like he was on the verge of putting it together.  He's had some stretches where he and Miguel have gotten aggressive, played off each other, and done pretty well.  He also started going to the basket a little more aggressively.  I don't know that he'll live up to his recruiting hype but I think he will be really solid for us if he stays.

The kid from American University could be a solid get between his shooting and PG skills.

Yes, couple this with what ChiCat said, yes losing DaJuan would be a massive bummer. This staff needs to rough ridin' develop some players, any players, please. We can't be a program with no upper classmen, we aren't rough ridin' Kentucky, we have to have players in this lineup for 3 and four years and we never ever get that. If either DaJuan or Montavious leaves we will have 3 out of 10 players in the 17-19 classes who didn't transfer out, that's obviously awful. So we're either going to be at either 20% or 30%, maybe even as low as 10% of players that should be in the program who didn't complete their eligibility. There is no way another program in the country has turnover that awful. Greggggg was cussing out his players and punching them and crap and he didn't lose that many players.

also mcguirl is a great example of a bad-mediocre player becoming a solid contributor just by staying around. nino williams, southwell, DJamer also come to mind. our 5-6th best players need to be like this if we're going to be a top 10 kind of team.
Title: Re: Potential transfers and new guys

I feel like McGuirl probably became a solid contributor by everyone else leaving more than by himself staying around.

There is absolutely no rough ridin' way to positively spin losing three of your top seven players, two of which were starters. Two sophomores and one that just transferred here a year ago. I don't give a damn if we're replacing these players with the Monstars. I don't know how oscar can be trusted to do this again.

Gene Smith fired Thad Matta in June because of Matta's inability to build a roster that can win.

Yeah, I was actually pretty encouraged that oscar found a way to get this team moving in the right direction, but jesus christ, having half your starting lineup transfer, and the attrition is certainly not over, is just a total punch in the gut. eff oscar. eff oscar forever.

BREAKING: Minnesota star Marcus Carr has entered the transfer portal, per a source.
The 6-foot-2, 195-pound combo guard averaged 19.4 points, four-rebounds and 4.9 assists this season, earning Third Team All Big Ten honors and earning his place on the Wooden Watch throughout much of the season.

Yeah, the only two players even remotely interested in rebounding are apparently gone. I'm sure that's perfectly fine for a team that went 4-14 in conference.

He was handed the keys to the car, couldn't crack double digits points per game and shot 23% from three. I liked his rebounding, but man, the kid was real limited offensively.

I'd say this jank ass offense and his starting senior point guard dribbling at the top of the key for 15 seconds every possession can be pretty limiting for most everyone else.

I was willing to ride it out because I thought people would actually stick around and we'd see some development. NOPE. This will once again be a roster with one player who has been in the program more than a year. It's over, it's time to cut bait.

Replace them with what, with who? It's not like he's had a hard time filling rosters. He'll definitely replace them and whoever else leaves, he's forfeited the right to get the benefit of the doubt that anyone will work out in the short or long term.

Seriously, what makes us think these freshmen won't be out after next year if oscar is still here? DJamer, Wes, Dean, Barry, and Kam were the lone exceptions and he's now going into his 10th recruiting class here.

The portal didn't exist when Baker Mayfield transferred. Yes, walk-ons which Petrakis isn't anymore, are subjected to the same transfer rules as scholarship athletes because their non-covid eligibility clock, 5 years to complete 4, is the same regardless of scholarship status. Walk-one do go in the portal because they can go from non-scholarshipped at Arizona, to being on scholarship at Bowling Green.

Baker Mayfield wasn't screwed anymore than anyone else who transferred from Big 12 school to Big 12 school when the school he or she is leaving either doesn't grant the release or is slow to. The rile has now been changed. Tech did eventually release him but it was after the semester started and Baker had already red shirted so OU ended up being granted an extra scholarship. Knowing Baker, it's pretty safe to say that transfer wasn't as simple as him not wanting to be there anymore and he just looked at schools completely on the up-and-up. I'm not willing to give Baker, his family, and OU the benefit of the doubt on there being no shenanigans.

Way different than football, there will be places for all players who are D1 quality. There are 357 D1 programs and I'm willing to bet that all 357 currently have scholarships available. If anything, in basketball the transfers have more of an adverse effect on late signees.

is he here for 2 years?

so we lose two sub-30% 3 point shooters and replace them with two guys over 30%. there's highlights of markquis pulling up 10 feet behind the line early in the shot clock. oscar is like lebron, give him shooters and he wins basketball games.

Smith has 1 to play Nowell has 2.  Smith replaces Dajuan and Nowell replaces Rudi.  I think we upgraded both positions for next year. Will be interesting to see if they backfill Antonio’s scholly with another 4 or give it to the high school pg Alston Mason.  I think they go small ball with Smith playing the 4.  Starting lineup is all 4 star players and a 5th year senior.
 

Likely starters for next year

Pack
McGuirl
Selton
Smith
Bradford

Subs

EZ
Nowell
Kasubke
Monte(if his knee cooperates) if not maybe we see Lewis

Smith is not better than DaJuan lol. He is probably a better shooter, but defense, rebounding, energy, not even close. Especially for being 2 (3?) years older and playing 2 more seasons of major college basketball.

Nowell is super tiny.  We need a PG and he had good assist numbers but the size difference in P5 could hurt him.

Also, I'm going to need to know slap the floor numbers for Smith to decide if he is a better defender than Dejuan

He's leaving a third school as a sophomore, that's ridiculous. His numbers weren't great at UNLV. If he's the caliber of transfer TJ is going to get, I'm very confident that they will remain cemented in d.a.l. TJ is supposed to be a recruiter, imagine landing a transfer, with all of these players in the portal, that you know will only be a role player in your program. Damn, even oscar found two guys who should have significant roles on the team.

I'm not as excited about these players as some of you although Massoud certainly seems like a Bruceian player so maybe he'll improve.  I'm not sure Nowell can consistently get buckets at the P5 level at his size but we did need a PG to help keep us get under 20 TOs a game.

I'd like to see some guards/forwards that will attack the basket somewhat consistently but that appears to be all on Miguel at this point.

I was genuinely surprised to see how shitty their non-con schedules have been his 3 years there.

Assumed they're the type of school that would schedule a significant amount of those paid to play P6 basketball schools, but not much of a sample size to see how he handled it.

I’m still not convinced this is a tournament team and it is going to likely put the squeeze on Selton’s minutes which I don’t like.  We should be a much improved 3 point shooting team so that will be fun to watch. Hopefully Pack elevates to another level next year and can put us over the top.

I'm going on record now by saying Nowell will struggle to score efficiently and guard anyone, at all.

Interestingly enough, KU got a very similar player in Joseph Yesufu. I'm confident that Self will be able to get him some shots though. oscar's offense has been trash pretty awful in creating good shots for people though and being 5'7" or whatever Nowell is, won't be beneficial to finding his own shot.

Oscar's trash offense is why I think you take 4-6% off the shooting percentage of the newcomers.  They may look like upgrades on paper but by the time they get Bruced, they will be the same players we always have.

Dejuan never lived up to his hype. I loved his energy, but he was raw. The #burnitdown crowd wants to elaborate how much oscar sucks for losing shitty players they never liked in the first place and ho hum about legit level transfers coming in. It's so bizarre. The 'zifried's of the world are like "oscar sucks at not getting good juco players like Justin Williams ":lol:" and never lands legit transfers!" and BOOM! He's rough ridin' crickets, planning his next attack on the next goalpost to move. Everything that was requested of oscar to keep his job if he was going to stick around, has been delivered since the end of the season. Let some of us glow a bit and stop stuffing stat sheets down your eyeballs, at these players last stops, at other shitty squads.

Post by: sonofdaxjones on April 15, 2021, 10:58:15 AM
These are all role players. 

oscar has put together a nice team of role players which may scratch and claw their way into 6th place next year and possibly be a bubble team.

I hadn't realized that having a revolving door in the basketball training facility and backfilling with role players superseded the requirement to win actual basketball games.

If what WackyTuck says is true, then we have the easiest P5 athletic department to work and coach for in the entire country.

Decent pay, good swag, nice offices, good perks, few expectations.   :thumbsup:

Oscar's trash offense is why I think you take 4-6% off the shooting percentage of the newcomers.  They may look like upgrades on paper but by the time they get Bruced, they will be the same players we always have.

Agreed.  We need someone to come in and implement an offense that gets shooters "Ultra Wide Open" rather than just wide open as I'm sure that would've helped these snipers we keep recruiting.

oscar’s offense doesn’t generate as many good looks as it should, that’s legit.  It definitely drops our shooting percentage.

Some of you guys need new material. We've had a great spring in recruiting. I'm optimistic. Go cats!

I don't know how you can claim it's no big deal that we lose Dejuan and then do backflips when we get someone objectively worse in every statistical category other than 3pt%.
Dejuan never lived up to his hype. I loved his energy, but he was raw. The #burnitdown crowd wants to elaborate how much oscar sucks for losing shitty players they never liked in the first place and ho hum about legit level transfers coming in. It's so bizarre. The 'zifried's of the world are like "oscar sucks at not getting good juco players like Justin Williams ":lol:" and never lands legit transfers!" and BOOM! He's rough ridin' crickets, planning his next attack on the next goalpost to move. Everything that was requested of oscar to keep his job if he was going to stick around, has been delivered since the end of the season. Let some of us glow a bit and stop stuffing stat sheets down your eyeballs, at these players last stops, at other shitty squads.

My point is you call Dajuan shitty and Massoud legit despite that Massoud has been objectively worse (and was also a highly rated recruit that did not live up to the hype).   It isn't that I have a burn it down agenda, I'm looking at data.  It's that you want to be right in propping oscar up more than you want KSU to be good at basketball.

Massoud was forced to play out of position at Wake Forest though and this will not happen as a Wildcat.   He will be an integral part of the team next year that wins the Big 12 and contends for a national championship.

Smith replaces D Gordon and Massoud replaced A Gordon.   Newell replaces Rudi.   It’s an upgrade at all three spots.  Also Massoud was forced into the 5 spot at Wake last year so his his stats are skewed.  It’s why he shot lower from 2Pt than 3Pt last year.

there is no such thing as a oscar fan, he's a dork. just non-haters. i would have been for his firing if he had a bad offseason. but the oscar haters hate him even when he's in the tourney or winning big 12 titles. we are the objective ones.

these 3 guys aren't home runs but that's fine. i always thought if nobody major left (and no major addition), the freshman class would be pretty good next year, and a top 15 kind of team in 2 years. replacing the lost guys with slight upgrades is a nice bonus. i'm putting a lot of value in their shooting because we had zero last year. it's really going to open things up for miguel and bradford to operate.

I'm certain that you aren't the tuck I had this conversation with on twitter, but oscar's offense at K-State has been inarguably bad. Whatever metric you want to use, shooting percentages or offensive efficiency ratings, K-State has spent most of the last decade in the bottom half of the conference in these stats.

I know his teams struggle to get open, in rhythm shots. If you think it's just payers missing open shots, then you blame oscar for recruiting players who can't hit shots

Wake fan on reddit re Massoud: "I like ish. But he was one of the most frustrating players to watch. Bad shot selection, no effort on defense, cannot dribble, and is one of the least athletic players I've seen. Other than the insane game against Pitt, he was disappointing."

Another Wake fan: "Was too unathletic to be a 3, and not strong enough to be a 4 this year ... "

Seems to check all the Oscar boxes except that he has outside shooting ability. Obviously, he isn't going to help on the boards or be much inclined to on a team weakened by the loss of its to best rebounders.

It's an open question whether Massoud is athletic enough to slap the floor. He might just flick it, and call it good. Now the 5-7 midget PG, he'll slap hard with both hands, but still be a midget.

I wouldn't think so. It's more a matter of style of play. That viral tweet of Candace Parker dunking on Shaq about the pick and roll in today's NBA is a perfect example of why a limited skills big is no longer something sought after.
