Carti and Sneed are probably the most athletic players we’ve had since Walker and Sutton. Just my  :th_twocents:

Yea I’m just going to agree to disagree on the athleticism point but I am LBBIQ.   I do think oscar got 4 really good basketball players in Pack, Miguel, Bradford, and Kasubke but the 2019 class has been a major disappointment.  He doesn’t have any instant impact guys lined up for 2021, so you basically have had 1 good class in 6 years and that crap will get ya fired.

Marcus Foster was pretty athletic even after he got fat.

Was he? I remembered his game as more similar to Pullen where he has that shifty create a shot with leverage type of skills not the I'm going to drive to the hoop and slam the ball over your head with my 40 inch vertical type of skills.

He could definitely get to the rim. He decided to try and become short Antoine Walker, but he could absolutely thunderdunk.

This is pretty objectively untrue. He's stayed employed with kstate for like the last six years off of one class.

It's very possible this freshman class is good enough that he repeats that trick.

That dunk vs Gonzaga might be my peak boner ever, during a basketball game.

I remember freshman Westicles throwing an alley oop to freshman Foster from half court for a dunk and thinking, "damn, they're going to be a superstar duo in a couple years."

See, everyone says this, but I never remember him executing a crazy dunk in action. He’s the most glorified athlete oat in practice, that never showed it on the court.

What's the point of being athletic if your game is comprised of shooting corner threes? Athleticism is only relevant if it's utilized.

Oh, I agree, just thought we were doing an all athlete shoot off. Sutton is probably the most athletic we’ve seen. I hate B walks knees tho, could you imagine how bad ass he would have been before his 10th acl injury?

I think athletic in this instance means handles more than anything right?  I’m probably equating athleticism more to strength and speed than elite dribbling ability.  X was as big strong and fast as it comes but he didn’t have the handles to consistently beat dudes 1 on 1 in the half court.

Wes was at least as, and probably more, athletic than Sneed and maybe Carti

Marcus Foster’s Vince Carter type  dunk over a dude on a breakaway was about as athletic of a play as I can ever remember a cats player doing.  It felt like he was destined to be an NBA player but I guess he was too short.

I’m like 99 percent sure I was watching that dunk with @ksupamplemousse at The Foundry (rip) in Westport. Was an unreal play

For sure, again his coach didn't feel it was relevant, he might be the most underutilized cat OAT.

Yea I’m just going to agree to disagree on the athleticism point but I am LBBIQ.   I do think oscar got 4 really good basketball players in Pack, Miguel, Bradford, and Kasubke but the 2019 class has been a major disappointment.  He doesn’t have any instant impact guys lined up for 2021, so you basically have had 1 good class in 6 years and that crap will get ya fired.

Is there room for anyone in 2021 yet? The one dude we got has a lot of good offers.

I think technically the one is all they have open for 2021 but they will run off a few more I think.  The one 2021 they have reclassified from 2022 so I think the expectation is he will likely redshirt in 2021.

There is no way they're going to keep both of those sophomore power forwards.

This is weird.

Maybe the apathy factor is greater here in TITLETOWN but it feels like KSO is 10x more in the angry  "fire oscar NOW" camp than gE right now.

KSO is full of reactionary emotional dweebs. we are much more level headed
I mean, gone are the days when gE used to bring this level of energy to the question of who would coach the 'Cats....

Might even jettison both of them
