it has to be a mental thing....you're not going to play as hard against a little kid.  there's no way that this little d-bag should be able to get rebounds against kids twice his size.

Those "varsity" teams would get smoked by a lot of freshman teams and some 8th grade teams.

Is this oscar's first big that might be good, that didn't just like fall into his lap ala Claws? DJamer ended up being better than we thought he would be, but largely because his early play set the bar so low. Would be nice if oscar just started landing very serviceable 3 star bigs with offers from other "good" P5 programs. Would take.

Mario McKinney is now listed as warm for KSU on 24/7; new.
Cam'ron Fletcher is now listed as a warm one too.
Liddell and these two all are from st. Louis and want to play together.

Yeah, I was hoping that McKinney, Liddel and Beran would at least make it onto campus... those three were always a long shot, but I hoped that we could at least get a visit.  KU offering Christian Braun probably takes all of our momentum that we had with his recruitment.  Maybe KSU can still get visits from the first three or things will develop with Thorpe, January, Tandy or Camara.

Thorpe (#147), Camara (#123), January (#121) and Bruan (#113) all had nice jumps in the new Rivals rankings.  McKinney (#126) and Tandy (#118) fell a little.  Any of that group would be great.  I have no clue if we are still in the game with Liddell or Timme.

I figured Braun would jump on the KU offer.  Sucks, but that’s how it goes.  I feel bad for Weber and his staff.  They recruit really hard but struggle to close the door on top notch recruits.  I would break it down like this for our last three scholarships:

Braun: Gone to KU
McKinney and Liddell:  Both dripped us, probably going to Missouri
Timme: Dropped us
Tandy: Wants a UK offer, maybe if he holds out and it doesn’t come we might get a second look.
Camara: We got a visit, we got a shot I suppose
Thorpe: We were recruiting him early, hopefully it pays offf
January: No clue

I love this story

Quote
completely renovate and retrofit Memorial Stadium and build a new locker room and workout facility underneath it. The school was going to take on a bonded debt of $445 million
...
The Bears now owe at least $18 million per year in interest-only payments on the stadium debt, and that number will balloon to at least $26 million per year in 2032 when Berkeley starts paying off the principal stadium cost. Payments will increase until they peak at $37 million per year in 2039, then subside again in 2051 before Berkeley will owe $81 million in 2053. After that, the school is on the hook for $75 million more and will have six decades to pay it off. The stadium might not get paid off until 2113

Not bad.  Still kind of disappointed on not catching bigger fishes.
DGordon might be another Pullen.  Guards from Chicago are tough bastards.
Walsh is just a good kid that is thrilled  to be at Oscarland. 
Like Gordon played at Lawton.  This area has produced good players.  He scored 20pts a game last year and has a good mid range shot.  6'8".
MonteM is a forward who has a motor.  High speed and high flying.

I have watched a lot of film on these guys. Dejaun Gordon is not much like Pullen.  Maybe closer to The Flush.
 Wash will be the star of this class.    Maybe Sneed would be the best comparison except maybe an inch shorter and he handles it better.  Big strong athletic shooting guard who should be a high level defender. 
A Gordon will be interesting.  Underweight 6 ft 8 guy who can shoot from the perimeter.  Very hard to predict how good of what type of player he might be in the future.

  I don't disagree except that he is 6ft 8 and can shoot from three.   I am wondering what I would think of him if he weighed 225 instead of 195.  One summer with the current S&C coach could change my opinion.  For example, Trice put on 42lbs this summer and Mawien 25.

I've been thinking about comparisons for both of these guys to other KSU bball players since I've followed KSU hoops (Cartier Martin's JR year).
I've said before that Montavious Murphy is a taller Wes Westicles with a better jumpshot, which I still think is the closest comparison for him. But we've never had a player like Dajuan Gordon before. Because he's one of the tallest players on his HS team, he plays a much different role there than he does on his AAU team, and I think that his play for us will be much more like his AAU highlights, where his game looks like a mix between Denis Clemente and Dominique Sutton. He will be hands down the most athletic player on the floor for us next year.

Looks like we have one to give for 2019, pretty weird deal to enroll him early and jettison him before the other 19 cruits even got here but whatever.  I’m guessing Nigel Shadd and James Love will be transferring too.

We are in on some decent options for grad transfers and kids that got released due to coaching changes.

nobody:


stunted:
i crunched some numbers on players ranked 100-150 listed at 6'10" or taller (32 players)

- have to go all the way back to 2009 since a guy ranked in there was listed at 7'.
- 2 guys undrafted, 4 guys drafted. however 7 are still in college.
- the 4 guys drafted played 4 years, the 2 guys undrafted declared after their junior year.
- 10 ended up transferring. 29 guys stuck around second year, 24 third year, 17 fourth year.
- 11 guys averaged 10 points or more at some point. 7 of those in power 5 conferences.
- 12 guys averaged 5 rebounds or more at some point.
- the highest rebounds/game is 8.
- only 2 guys averaged 6 points or more in the first year. average first year ppg was 3.
- second-fourth year averages ppg was 3, 4, 7, 8. rpg was 2, 3, 4, 5

we're looking at 9mpg, 3ppg, 2rpg the first year :flush:


*i guess 6 guys out of 25 at least sniffing the NBA is alright actually. and ppg/rpg isnt the best way to measure their impact.

how many open scholarships did they have? their last class was pretty good. not blue-blood elite though. only 2 commits last year that are barely top 50, the rest are oscar-level recruits. it looks like without cheating they'll miss out on the top guys 2 years in a row. recruits were just toddlers when they won the national title.

can't play in allen fieldhouse if you get drafted. kids are paid lining up to play there.

it seems like he is way closer to being a 3 star than a 5 star. his stats though, woof. wish him luck anyways. i think ku is being gifted stars. they have one guy, harris, his only offers are tulsa and missouri state. not top 150, and has 4 stars. not really unknown either, he's ranked 39th as a pg but he's the only one ranked worse than 23rd to have 4 stars.

they're handing out 4 stars to everyone now, muscadin and their juco guy would be 3 stars in the past. 3/5 recruits last year are 100+ types. self has never had this little talent. while that means most of our own class would be 3 stars in the old system oscar has proven he can get far in the tourney without top talent. they'll be good this year but in the future, seats going to get hot.

Let’s do some scholly math

Departing seniors Mak, Pierson, X
Transfers love, shadd, SNW

So that is 7 scholarships occupied.  Mike, Carti, Levi, Sloan, D Gordon, A Gordon, Murphy
Incoming Players: 6 Pack, Kasubke, transfer big i forget name,  7 foot dude, Miguel, Seryee



So if we are still pursuing Donavan we are still expecting one departure. My money is on Carti.

This hasn't been ruled on but no chance of this happening for winter sports athletes. What some people are forgetting is that a lot of these seniors had already completed their eligibility. 12 conference tournaments had been completed. Only the AAC, SWAC, and Big West had not started their tournaments. The Ivy obviously hadn't either but only four teams play in that tournament.

Also I don't think Cartier is leaving.

It's already going to screw over incoming freshmen in spring sports if large numbers of seniors decide to stay. Incoming freshmen could start singing NLI's back in November - many teams in many sports in many levels of the NCAA would have already essentially had their incoming classes complete/finalized by the time all this stuff went down.

1. Part of the legislation that will be passed to allow the spring athletes to essentially freeze their clock, important distinction because it will effect all athletes, all classes, will be to give schools scholarship relief. No freshman will be losing their scholarships. The bigger issue will be how these scholarships will be funded, especially at smaller schools. The schools and conferences will not only miss out on important revenue from the media rights from the basketball and baseball conference tournaments, but they lose all of that NCAA revenue. 99%, not an exaggeration, of that revenue is generated from the championships, almost all of which is from the basketball tournament. The bigger decision from the NCAA isn't the spring athlete eligibility decision but how they're going to fund these schools and conferences.

Right, and it's the NCAA, so it'll end up being the schools that can afford it will do so (some Power 5s) and the schools that can't (most of the rest), won't. If you're in a middle of the pack conference and you can bring back the 2018 conference lacrosse player of the year or an incoming freshman at the bottom of your class (but can't afford both - it's not just the scholarship, but the housing, the stipend, etc.), who are you going to choose? There's going to be a lot of losers in this situation.

Let the hairsplitting begin... if you use the 247 composite rankings, oscar has recruited exactly one 4-star recruit in his tenure at K-State and that guy transferred (Malek Harris).

If we count the current class, oscar has now recruited two 4-star recruits in his tenure (Nigel Pack being the other).

oscar's retention rate for his signees isn't great (meaning the players he signs exhausting their eligibility at K-State). In fact, he has never signed a class where every player in that class ended their careers at K-State. That Foster class is a good example - only Westicles finished at K-State (Foster, Johnson, Thomas all transferred). But, is that rate much better/worse than most schools? It seems worse to me, but, it would take a fair bit of time to compare/contrast to know for sure.

Coaches wiff on recruits all the time and players transfer out because of it. It’s not a oscar Weber thing, it’s a college basketball these days kind of thing. We all know it too, but blaming everything on oscar is much easier for some people with lower basketball IQ’s (not you). :th_twocents:

Well we've at least gotten to the point that any concern for the players is absolute bullshit, unless it's Frank.

I don't care the oscar ran these guys off.  Carti is the only one that would make a difference next year and, at most, that would've been enough to get us to the NIT so whatever.  I just also don't pretend to care that Frank was rumored to be about to lose Shane and Sprads.

The last time we had a class this big was 2015, which had a success rate of 3/7 (Dean, Barry and Kamau). If we can get three star/solid support guys out of this class, coupled with a star and two solid support guys in the last class, I think we'll be doing ok. Our record next year will probably still be pretty awful, but I think the team will be a lot more fun to watch.

Our class is good enough to compete but not good enough to do it right away.  It'll pay dividends in 2 to 4 years.  oscar has success and recruits at the level of a pretty good mid-major.  It will continue to be cyclical unless we keep some JUCOs or get transfers.  I would've like a transfer in this class so we can burn the sit-out year while the team isn't competitive, but we also weren't an attractive destination.

Nuance is something, huh? I'm pissed that Weber was allowed to run another complete team off. Either be better at identifying targets for your crap offense or be better at coaching them. He did neither and got a pass. People seem to be fine with him doing this again because the first time he did this, it yielded Brown, Stokes, and Wade. I don't think there is any way this class yields a conference championship and an elite 8 and the goalposts for measuring oscar's success will change again. People are already making excuses for how bad the team will be next year. If you sign a top 15 class there is no way you should be having a terrible season.

a large segment of our fanbase has decided to measure oscar on things that don’t appear in the W/L column and that changes how his success is defined.  so ya we didn’t struggle this year or won’t next in their mind’s eyes

I don’t agree with the premise of signing a top 15 class translating into instant wins, there are several examples every year of that not panning our. I think he should and would have been fired at the end of this year had the pandemic not happened because I see another 4-14 type conference season again.  His 2017 and 2018 recruiting classes were inexcusable and put the program in the position we are now.

Post by: treysolid on April 23, 2020, 06:28:19 PM
Being realistic about this class, I think there's alot to like. Selton and Pack are my best bets at being future stars, tho I could see Selton potentially going the Malek Harris flameout path too (~20% chance this happens, imo). Kasubke will probably have a similar development arc as Will Spradling - small improvements every year, maybe you find stuff to nitpick at because he's white, but the overall product isn't as good when he's on the bench. I could see Bradford being a total flameout just because our staff can't develop a traditional post player to save their lives. The other guys will all get Bruced, except for maybe one rando who is a complete DITR.

You definitely aren't using the term moving the goalposts correctly. When assessing the current state of the program that 2019 conference championship doesn't mean anything, not when it is followed up by a last place finish, that championship is history, not the present.

What does instant wins mean? I think, at the very least, the expectation should be that this is a bubble team.

Here's the top 15 classes
Kentucky
Duke
North Carolina
Oklahoma State
Tennessee
LSU
NCSU
Gonzaga
Arkansas
Auburn
Texas Tech
Kansas
Michigan
Kansas State
Stanford

I know that not every top 15 recruiting class makes the tournament, usually 12 or 13 make it a year, but how many of those other schools do you think have a fan base setting as low of a bar as we are? oscar has been here longer than almost all of those coaches, certainly all of them who aren't blue bloods or consistent contenders. Are we saying that he's the 15th best coach on that list of 15 programs? Our fans love to crap on Boynton, but I'll be damned if his program has seemingly passed oscar's, 13 months after oscar won a conference championship.
Title: Re: Master Dudes Thread

Yea I think the expectation should be a bubble team when you are going to have six top 150 guys on your roster.  2019 Georgia is a pretty good example of a group of really talented young players not translating into a winning season.

i think a.gordon and murphy will turn up being jamar samuels type of players. d.gordon will be dom sutton or xavier sneed. pack will be like Deathbite. not a bad start. just need someone to be a star.

Because boredom...

Below are oscar's first seven recruiting classes (jury is still TBD on the last two). You can haggle/debate the rating of good, very good, average, etc. But, it's pretty hard to label the failures below as anything other than that (failure being defined as a player that contributed little - if anything - to the program).

Under that premise, there are 23 players in these seven classes and 11 were failures. There can't be many b-ball programs that sustain success with a recruiting failure rate right at 50 percent.

For the oscar fans, perhaps that's a testament to his coaching ability. For the oscar haters, this horrific recruiting speaks for itself.

I've been pretty clear about this, you just don't want to accept it. I don't like him getting a pass for the program failures. Also let's be clear, the good players in this class were the ones he signed early. The players that were run off were replaced by these April signings, in a pandemic. Most coaches only get to do this once, he's now done it twice in six seasons. Congrats to him on signing the #14 class in the country, how much should we care if that yields 8th in the conference and then has 4 more transfers next April?

Why wasn't Gordon better

His per 100 possession stats are in line with Barry as a freshman, but Brown had a much higher usage rate. I'd presume a large part of that is Barry didn't have to play with a guard that had a usage rate anything close to what Cartier's usage rate.

AC or DC?  and I'm not talking about Aaron Collier and Darryl Cunningham. Obviously DaJuan, just wanted to get a 1992-1993 Kansas St highlight video reference in there, that I used to watch on repeat.
Title: Re: Master Dudes Thread
Post by: ChiComCat on April 27, 2020, 09:21:28 AM
I though Dajuan was good on wide open 3s.  He had flashes where he seemed to take over a couple of minutes of the game, I think the WVU win had some of that.  I was hoping for a little more but mostly I just want to see flashes of the upside in freshmen and I still think he has a lot of it.  Angel had some good/bad flashes his frosh year where I think DG had less high end flashes but also fewer glaring mistakes although some of that could be that it's easier to hide mistakes when you're not the PG.

I want someone on the team to push their teammates because oscar won't do it.  I think Barry helped cover that while he was here but we'll need someone else to step up.  Carti/Sneed didn't seem to have it last year and it's probably unfair to expect a frosh to instill toughness in a team, particularly one with those two returners.  This year we'll get a better idea if anyone has that either out of these guys or the freshmen.

Having a contingent of Chicagoland players – Cymone Goodrich and Jada Thorpe on the K-State women's basketball team – along with Gordon, has helped Lewis get settled in the Little Apple.

Oscar is running (badly) this 4 out, 1 in offense. It's not working because he can't recruit shooters. And oddly, he is stockpiling bigs with four centers and two forwards currently on the team when as a rule he only puts one big on the floor at a time. And his only recruit so far, another big.
The stock-piled personnel seems designed for a high-low post or double-low post offense. What am I missing?

Ez is good too. He's probably the worst of the three offensively but the best defensively. Linguard had a start that won't be forgotten, but he has a game that will be frustrating for a lot. He's a finesse face up big that doesn't like to do the dirty work inside and he can't guard my toddler. Davion is the best of bunch by far, he likes to bang, he's okay defensively, but certainly will get better, he's a poor rebounder. He's also the type of player, until he gets better defensively, who will live in foul trouble, so we absolutely need the depth. Of course the inevitable foot trouble always looms.

Well ksunimrod, stats can be tricky. See here at ksuheupzu, we run a style of offense that thrives on what we call "low percentage shots". These are the types of shots, usually late in the shot clock, where a guy heaves an off balance 3 somewhere between the NBA 3 and the half court line, and often with a hand in their face. Surprisingly, these shots go in at a much lower rate than more traditional shot choices.

This makes total sense now!  I've been practicing that very move my whole life in driveways and on playgrounds (maybe throwing in a few awkward head fakes too...)  and my percentage is basically the same.  I can only conclude there must be some sort of incentive for recruiting non-traditional students of the game?

 Kidtrell Blocker 6-foot-5 combo guard

How about your first Big 12 offer from Kansas State?

“As far as Kansas State, one of their assistants had seen me play against Our Savior Lutheran and one of their commits last year and he said I was one player that stood out against like six high-major players and he was at a lower school at the time so he thought I was this high-major guy with tons of offers already, so,  when he came to K-State and seen I was under-recruited and still available, they’ve been on me since.”


Where do things stand in your recruitment as far as possible suitors?

“St. John’s and Montana State have been recruiting me. West Virginia, Alabama also reached out to my coach but haven’t heard anything from there yet.”

Our biggest need is more roster spots so we can get an actual point guard and move pack off the ball.

If Antonio Gordon is actually gone  :crossfingers: do we have anyone worth a crap we could replace him with?

He's the best 4 we have and before he got hurt or whatever is gong on, he played his role, d and rebounding, nearly perfectly. He just needs to chill out on the 3s arcs he started doing that.

Agree on Antonio, but I think he's gone. Hopefully Murphy can be healthy for a season.

Absolutely agree that we need a valid point/combo that can handle playing on the ball to move Pack off for the majority of the game.

Kris Parker and Zaide Lowery, Zaide doesn't have many offers so anything could change. He's from my neck of the woods and he went to school not far from where I graduated.

Interesting interview on 810 where the guest was talking about D1 coaches no longer relying on good freshman recruiting classes and instead heavy transfer portal.  Way more value in older kids who have matured physically and their talent can be properly analyzed.  Also too much risk developing a group for a couple years to lose them to transfer portal.

So if oscar does this right, he’ll bring in a few freshman and hit the portal hard every year for players who can immediately contribute.

Just to keep everyone up to date these days, it's a massive tease to bump this thread without any actual recruiting updates and you can get arrested in 50 states for doing it. I'll allow the rest of the week for non sense bumpings in here until after Tangs opening presser (tomorrow at noon, on espn+).  Anything after that is in massive violation to this thread. Tread lightly and go cats!

Some of you need to relax. JFC, it's been a week. I can tell a lot of you are going to be exhausting through this process. Many of the assistants just put ink to paper. Let the final 4 conclude and collect your pelts afterwards.

I’m not one to get emotionally attached to recruits until I see them listed in the starting lineup but this is sunrise academy and would be nice to get somebody from there.

Or maybe just post either Dude or Hard Worker, or something along those lines, so that I can follow this easier?

I wanna helicopter my dong as much as the next guy, but ima wait til we actually land somebody before I unzip. I think the journey of a single recruit starts with $10,000, but lots of hustlers "talk" to recruits. Whether or not we land any remains too early to see.

Who is willing to be the first dude to put their career in the hands of a bunch of coaches that are on the come up, but have never been "the" guy before? It would be nice to get some positive momentum.

Discussing what the staff is saying publicly and how it makes you feel is not turning on someone. The message seemed to go from we are elevating and we are getting dudes to we want to be careful who we bring in and they need to be the right fit pretty quickly. Pretty slth talk the last week.

I thought he was a bit bold in his presser about a quick turnaround but I didn't doubt his sincerity.  Even with Pack in the portal, I still expect we'll bring in more talent than we lose in the portal.

I really want that first domino to fall though.  I think if Tang can get one decently high-end player, he can really sell being a part of something new and exciting in Manhattan.  Getting that first quality player to commit to a new coach and an almost empty roster is going to be a challenge though.

yeah that's kind of exactly what i was trying to say. he said all the right things, all the confident in him long term on my end. i just think there may be more 'rebuild' here than we all wanted at first. but who knows. could snag a bunch of transfer studs that we aren't aware of yet in the next month.

I’m not going to try to predict what things stupid fans will or won’t say, but I think anything better than basically last place in year 1 should be viewed as a significant improvement vs. the last three years. As for season 2, yeah everyone will hope for a tourney bid, but whether missing one should be viewed as a failure depends on a ton of factors yet to be determined.

According to 247 he had 2 Top 150 guys in the last 6 years (Nijel and Sneed) and zero top 100 guys.  His recruiting wasn't good.  It wasn't even average.  You don't finish 10,9,9 with good recruiting.

I don't care what the ratings were of oscar's recruits were. He and his staff were either horrendous at evaluation, landing the plane, or both. I also won't give a damn about the number of stars of Tang's recruits either. Kansas, Baylor, and Tech all had teams that way over performed what their recruiting rankings indicated that they should have. Those staffs do a good job with evaluation, getting the players they identify, and development. I don't know why we're acting like Tang was out recruiting Duke and Kentucky while he was at Baylor, he wasn't.

I frankly didn't see the Houston offer. That's comforting. A&M, too. I like Buzz. Before took his current job, he was one of the coaches I thought of when Oscar cultists whined "but who are we going to get to replace him?"

You would think a maxed-out G-leaguer would have a good chance of getting a 10-day callup and the auto $100k plus that goes with that, too.

dubdub, ignite salaries are up to $500,000

zif', ignite players aren't eligible for 10 contracts as they aren't yet draft eligible. The ignite team is a G league team of not draft eligible prospects.

but why?

He was born on Omaha, NE and his family moved over to Iowa when he was 2 years old. He was part of a state championship team in central Iowa (Des Moines suburb) as a sophomore (along with Tucker DeVries/Drake and Payton Sandford/Iowa) before he made the move to Link last year. Rumors he might be heading back to Des Moines for his senior year, but based on how many prep schools he was linked to last year, who knows.

We have Nowell, Ish, Cam Carter, Colbert, Taj Manning   plus Jarret Valencia and Dorian Finister are silent commits.   They have 6 more slots to fill which I think Antoine Davis will be one and Shawn Phillips feels like another one that is pretty heavy lean for us.  I am less confident in landing  Julian Phillips but seems likely that our third assistant coach still not being officially hired is indicative of some kind of behind the scenes motion for a stud 2022 HS player or two.

Don’t quite get why someone would be a silent commit at this point, but both of those seem more like Dudes in the rough than instant impact Dudes. But if Davis commits and we can land one of the HS studs we’ve been linked with I’d feel pretty good about at least being solid next year.

Every program has developmental players, you can’t get 13 dudes on the roster who all can have an instant impact for obvious reasons.  I’m no scout so I can’t speak to if those two dudes are worthy of a P6 offer but seems unlikely that this staff is going to bring in players that they don’t expect to be able to contribute eventually.

Yup   It didn’t take a rocket surgeon to figure that one out. Tweets out an edit with his four choices and then says oh yeah BYU is included after raving about how great his visit to K state was. Then radio silence for a week. Seems strange for someone that’s leaving his dad’s team to showcase his skills at a higher level to position himself for the NBA draft to pick a team based on the peanuts of NIL when compared to NBA money

Im one of the biggest sunshine pumpers on this board and I love Tang.

Who do you see as an instant impact player so far? Our 2 transfers averaging like 2 points a game? A 3 star recruit no other power 5 wanted? Or a juco player who has potential but is raw right now. We need Davis and a few Mark Smith types.

My level of excitement is necessarily about how good we’ll be next year. None of the players we have for next year have proved much at the D-1 level, but it looks like the coaches are gearing up to play a more exciting style of basketball and there’s definitely a ton of dude potential among the players we’re bringing in.

Correct, but these are unsure dudes too. Nobody was flipping their crap in excitement when former 4* Ish was transferring in from WF, but damn, you get a dude from LSU who averages 2 ppg, time to flip some crap in excitement! :lol: I know this is rapid fire recruiting, because of the current situation, but the KSO types out there on twitter banging their chests are embarrassing themselves right now.

Cheating and NIL are far different things, for now, lol. oscar embraced NIL, at least publicly, we discussed his comments in contrast to Gene's. No coach, Tang included, is going to be down for the already bastardized version of NIL, even Self has spoken out against this pay-for-play.

Kids are entering the portal with an NIL ask attached, supposedly.  It's grey area free agency.  This, and the reactions to it over the next few seasons, are going to change college sports.  I am not sure how, but I suspect the rich will get much much richer, and the rest will turn in to D3 ball.  Maybe something completely different.  No clue, but I feel comfy saying that they aren't dealing with comparable circumstances now and it's just gonna get more weird as we move forward.

I don't know what Tang meant by better players being available later, but snagging anyone testing the NBA draft waters seems like a good thing.

Quote
The next month will be wild. The second wave of high-level transfers will come after the June 1 deadline to stay in the 2022 NBA Draft or return to college. A bunch of stars could opt to run it back, but the teams that scooped up a lot of transfers right at the beginning might not have the room to add a few more even better players.

lol. No way that’s a real site.

You serious Clark?
Isn’t Jeremy Crabtree one of the people running that?

Yes they poached basically every decent recruiting person from rivals.  They are the most legit rating service operating imo.
What is it now? Rivals, 247, espn, this one, etc. People seem to pick and choose which one works out for their agenda. oscar was recruiting these type of guys the past 5 years. They’re not “dudes” however. Just guys we’ll wait and see with. That’s all.

Rivals and 247 have been the most used sites in the past 5-20 years. oscar has had a a top 20 class with Davion, Miguel, Pack, etc. I guess I should move goalposts when a recruit doesn’t land to on3.

I agree this is the type of recruit we typically got with oscar.  On3 really does have the most robust scouting dept now imo, rivals is gutted.

They didn't finish last and with 3 weeks to play, they were playing for an at large, even after all their covid crap early on. That's great if you want to accept mediocre recruiting, but I thought we were elevating here.  :bawl:

Massoud isn't clearly better than the guys we're bringing in.  If we judged Nowell by the same standard we're judging these guys (before he stepped foot on campus), he wasn't much better than these guys either.  Also, part of the reason why we need all these rough ridin' transfers is that the roster was hot garbage last year outside of Nowell, Smith, and Pack. 

But, by all means, let's crap on Tang for not fixing 4-5 years of roster mismanagement in 4-5 weeks.

Nowell was a bucket machine before transferring here and had success in the tourney. We knew he was a good transfer:

Ish was a 4 star recruit like the guy we just got from LSU and had more success before he stopped here than the dude from LSU:

Nowell was the only true PG on our roster. 

None of this is meant as a dig on Nowell because he is really good.  oscar thinking the team was better without our only PG, and a top 3 player on the team, starting is mindblowing.

Do you think Massoud will play more or less minutes this year vs last year?  You clearly didn’t look at the 2021-2022 LSU roster.  Colbert would have played(and scored) plenty for the 2021-2022 cats.

This crap by wacky and stunted is so incredibly stupid, it's hard to believe it's sincere.

Nowell transferred a year ago, we can literally go back and see the reaction on the board. No one knew he was going to have any impact at all. A 5'6" backup point guard who quit a 10th place Sun Belt team because he wasn't getting enough playing time.

Ish wasn't a starter, he started 8 of 53 games. He started those 8 games for a team who won 9 conference games in 2 years in the 5th or 6th best power conference.

Missouri fans were openly mocking us for taking Mark Smith, we hoped we would win the "trade," hoped.

What Massoud was could have been predicted, Smith and Nowell were complete shots in the dark, again we have to go back like three pages on this board to see the truth behind this asinine narrative.

jerrell is listed as center and the guy in front of him was a center averaging 6 points a game. shaq's son who had heart surgery got more minutes than him.

doesn't change the fact that he scored 2 points total against powerhouses like northwestern state, belmont, mcneese, ul monroe. massoud has done better against actual competition.

i like him but he's a project.

I'm not arguing that at all, I have no idea if he's going to be good or not. You are overstating what Massoud was when he was at WF. While I have argued over and over again that Massoud is an average college basketball player, that does not equate to a Big 12 starter.

I'm not talking about what individuals were excited about whom. You being excited about those guys and down on these guys perfectly tracks the narrative that chongs is talking about and why I don't think this skepticism is legitimate. Since April of 2012 you felt as if you need to balance the negativity towards oscar, stunted has been doing the same for the last two years. You guys are shouting down people in this thread like chicat, willie, chum, and rusty who weren't never Brucers to seemingly make some point, even running down a website that couldn't care less about oscar Weber narratives.

My biggest worry is these guys did this before NIL/transfer portal hit. They were great back door guys. I think it makes their job even harder that all of this is out in the open now. I don’t think much will change in college athletics, other than smaller programs not being able to compete with bags of cash. I think he was great at what he did before we opened free agency in college athletics. I hope I’m wrong and he kicks complete ass and finds a way to overcome the new norm. Which kinda sucks, btw.

My biggest worry is these guys did this before NIL/transfer portal hit. They were great back door guys. I think it makes their job even harder that all of this is out in the open now. I don’t think much will change in college athletics, other than smaller programs not being able to compete with bags of cash. I think he was great at what he did before we opened free agency in college athletics. I hope I’m wrong and he kicks complete ass and finds a way to overcome the new norm. Which kinda sucks, btw.

Backdoor guys? What does that mean? Our head coach recruited to Baylor good enough to eventually make them national champions. Our lead assistant recruited to Texas Tech good enough to take them to overtime of the national championship game.

NIL isn't going to change what college basketball is, blue bloods getting a shot at all the top talent and other programs occasionally landing one of them, then having a free for all for the players rated 26-300. K-State isn't broke, our coaches are proven recruiters in similar places. We'll get guys, I'll restate what 33 said, what needs to be seen if they can develop players and manage three program.

You can’t convince me that Baylor basketball didn’t pay a lot of dudes before the open market existed. That’s all. I hope he can coach them up. I just see big time recruiters at programs are usually giving a bag to someone. No way Baylor became what they have now without doing it.

Might not be the guy that I saw something on - I'll see if I can find it.  It could also be that they just pulled offers when they came in and planned to reoffer whoever, but wanted to do their own evaluation.

I'd love to know who the premature signal was about.

I thought I saw he reoffered a player that was oscar-cruit.  I'm sure there are less damning reasons possible, but l assume that they pulled it thinking they could do better and then decided to reoffer as they missed on some dudes.

It was nguessan the whole time, tang and the gang just tweet it out when they take the commitment. The commit can announce on their own timeline so the casual follower is left confused.

Yeah low BBIQ here, but I don’t really understand talking about a transfer’s ppg unless they played as a starter.

If the criticism is that they weren’t good enough to be a starter at the school they transferred from them fine, but it seems like other than coaching changes, lack of seeing the floor despite confidence in your abilities is the #1 reason you would transfer in the first place.

Tang has underdelivered so far based on his own self-created hype, but you cannot watch that highlight reel and say that we've had a player taller than 6-foot-5 in the entirety of oscar Weber's tenure with those skills (ability to post up, hit a 10+ foot jumper and possess a good deal of athleticism) other than Claws.

Will that matter? I have no idea. But this kid's highlight reel shows more ability than pretty much every forward/big oscar ever landed other than Wade.

Good example - remember Antonio Gordon? Two years ago, he started most of the time and averaged 4.9 ppg and 4.6 rpg. He transfers down to a 19-15 Southeastern Louisiana team last year that plays in one of the worst conferences in the country and his numbers go down across the board.

Would you rather have the 3 ppg kid from NCAA tourney team Va Tech? Or the 3 ppg kid from Southeastern Louisiana?

Westicles couldn't shoot when he got on campus (and didn't really develop that skill until his senior year) and was a role player until his junior year. If anything, this is a guy with more baseline skills who could develop into a player at or above Westicles's level. Will that happen? Who knows. But this isn't a trash-level player with no business having a D1 scholarship like so many of oscar's recruits.

Wade not getting drafted is on NBA scouts or perhaps his health, but it's hard to blame oscar.  A redraft of that class may have him as a first-rounder.

I'm not all that worried about getting guys drafted.  I don't think K-State has a shot to consistently recruit a lot of those guys although Tang intends to find out. There are plenty of fantastic NCAA players but might not be league players.

Totally fair...

But, the point is that the two anti-Tang/pro-Oscar chowderheads are shitting on everything Tang's done with one of them touting Oscar's NBA successes, which, by any measure, is the worst in the Big 12 during his tenure. Two NBA role players in 10 years is... not good.

The fact of the matter is that Tang is, on the whole, bringing in better players than Oscar even if they are underwhelming compared to what Tang (stupidly) boasted about during his opening presser. The easiest measure is just to take a look at the offers the incoming kids had out of high school and/or as transfers vs. where the outgoing kids landed.

And, of course we'd take a bunch of Barry Browns, but who's to say any of the kids we have can't become The Flush (that dude who none of the 13 D1 home state schools in Florida offered and who was a role player/part-time starter his freshman year on a bad team that went 5-13 in the Big 12).

You find the same people in most Royals circles.

Huge is looking forward to seeing these athletes with length in a shut down zone defense, leading the league in blocked shots, offensive and defensive rebounds and put backs. You can’t outscore us if you can’t get a shot off, or rebound your missed shot

#1 Markquis Nowell 5’8” guard
#2 Camryn Carter 6’3”guard
#3 Dorian Finister 6’5” guard
#4 Taj Manning 6’8” forward
#5  Ismael Massoud, 6’9” forward
#6 David N’Guessan, 6’9” forward
#7 Nae’Qwan Tomlin 6’10” forward
#8 Jerrel Colbert 6’10” center
Smellis the Jayhawk and the worst beat writer in the history of K State beat writers confirms Huge’s original impressions. Take that, Sprax.

I always thought "long" referred to wingspan more than height.

"long" in basketball is measured kL/r, where k is inseam, L is height, and r is waist

when we hired Tang i thought we were hiring a Huggy recruiting impact-wise, but really we were hiring a Frank, but a Frank without the benefit of an initial class lined up by Huggy (beas, walker, etc). so i still think Tang will get dudes but it's going to take more time than i wanted to think at first.

I think it really sets a nice base for 2023-2024 if they can land the primary HS targets they are after for the 2023 class.  You will have Cam Carter, Tomlin, Culbert, Nguessan all carrying over as multi year guys with some HS studs like Blocker or Dai Dai to sprinkle in on top of the regular mix of one year to play impact guys. If they actually land Emoni Bates this year it would be a slam dunk of a class really.

You could say the same about most of these recruits, whether it be limited playing time, or coming from high school.  I'm with HugeCat, too optimistic, but there is no where to go but up!
Title: Re: Master Dudes Thread
Post by: WildcatNkilt on June 23, 2022, 10:38:36 AM
Our defense and rebounding should be better.  So that is a plus.  I don't think we will be very good, but I do think we will be better than last year.  I also think we will get up and down the floor better than we did under oscar which could equate to more points than we all expect. 

I expect lots of blocks, fouls, rebounds, and dunks with this team.  Most of the points coming from inside the paint and probably 2nd-chance points.  A good shooting team will smoke us at the 3pt line since we'll probably be playing a ton of zone.

What is the difference between a “decent” team and a “bad” team? No one said we were going to win the big 12 championship. I’d be willing to bet we’re closer to decent than we are bad.  Was last year’s team decent or bad?

Kansas State: “Kansas State is a completely new coaching staff. Coach (Jerome) Tang came over from Baylor and Coach (Ulric) Maligi came over from Texas. They’ve both believed in me since the beginning, when they were at their old jobs. They’ve always told me what they can imagine me being at the next level. So just their trust in me and willingness to watch and allow me to develop underneath their program is a big thing for me.”
