    this dude is an absolute athletic freak. I would be surprised if he doesn't start for us next year. Another great find

    He’s going to be so awesome for us next year with JD and JQ throwing oops to him. Really good defensively, quick hands and obviously a good shot blocker with that vertical. I agree, I’m expecting him to be starting or really in contention to start game 1. Should be a good fit for us.

    i got bored so i decided to go look back to when oats was hired. turns out this thread was started in march of 19, two weeks before avery was fired. that happens on page 22. oats was hired on 35. 22-35 is hilarious. as are (most of) our initial reactions.


    i would really like to know how high up on byrne's list oats actually was

    yeah most of us were pretty caught up in the matta/pitino nonsense. then boom, oats, out of nowhere. i think many came around pretty quickly after the initial shock but i didnt read far enough to see who were the holdouts other than svg

    your first post after was "so how's the baseball team?"

    two years later the answer is still the same: bama baseball is vandy football

    I meant more my posts slobbering over Pitino or Matta. I actually think I was probably laughing at anyone who thought Pitino wanted to come here, which is equally stupid.

    Though, if healthy, he is an awesome coach.

    In my defense, I was listening to bad insider info at the time and I have little actual basketball IQ.

    iirc in one of the many pods oats was on this year he said he got a call from byrne the day buffalo got knocked out, which was the same day avery was fired. byrne asked about flying up the following day for an interview but told oats he wouldnt get the job if he told anyone at all about it. there were two days between the interview and the hire. so if he wasnt #1 he was #2 (behind beard i would guess)

    Beard would have never come here. I can't see any real upside to that move for him then. If Matta wasn't healthy and wasn't looking to take a job (which it seems like he hasn't been ready to do), I don't have a clue who else we would've been looking at. I think it's a really good chance that Oats was the #1.

    thinking about it now, ttu wasnt knocked out of the tourney until 4/8 that year. so there probably wasn't even a phone call.

    I think I wanted Pitino but honestly I just wanted Avery gone. Oats is a fucking badass though. Couldn’t be happier with the hire.

    I think I wanted Pitino, mainly because the SEC had become so slimy with Wade, and Pearl.
