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.
We are going from vulnerable at the 4/5 to absolutely stacked
Wilson had offers from Kansas, Arizona, and West Virginia fwiw and a thousand smaller schools
Arizona fired Miller
LSU will keep Wade.
its hard to keep your job when you cheat and still dont win
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
Wow look at our old pal Stone Cold being 100% correct again. Many posters are saying he can’t miss.
If you’re gonna word doc everyone, Odin , at least give Sammy credit for being right before everyone.
i forgot to go back and quote those. iirc someone had expressed interest in oats the page before though
it was johnlocke, not to be confused with juicy locke
Pop the tapes! He can play
Edit: Furman has matched up with plenty of P5 opponents that Gurley played well against
Lol at some clamoring for fucking Mountain Brooks coach
God, the amount of people who wanted pitino...EMBARASSING!
Forgot that Kira and Petty entered the portal
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
I'm not sure exactly what I've posted, but shame me please because I was on the train for sure.
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 feel very good about almost all of my past bama basketball takes
Tbf, the baseball team was looking good.
Jk lmbo baseball.
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.
This one stuck out to me. Instead we got a shit talking scoundrel and I love him
Sorry for singling you out Gus. All love
Let the record reflect that I am liking all the bad Nate takes now and did not like them initially
this was one of my favorites during the search
Petition to make Scott Van Pelt change his name to Stan Van Gundy
Would be interesting to know. Hire happened pretty quick didn't it?
I wanted Thad Matta.
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.
At one point before the 2019 season I proclaimed Smitty to be our best receiver. It's out there somewhere.
We’ve all been duped by LeonardWashington
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 stand by my takes wanting to add Bucky as an assistant coach.
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.
There's some good stuff starting around 532 , posters trying to run Oats out of town 15 +/- months after taking the job.
If I remember correctly, most if not all wanted him as an assistant to help land Watford.
the night of the wku game is gold, too
That day sucked. I thought the days of losing to Slick Rick Stansbury were over.
I think I wanted Pitino, mainly because the SEC had become so slimy with Wade, and Pearl.
i think we can all agree that we're happy with where things landed. except gump. but that's only because he's the only true bammer who always demands more.
I did a search on pitino yesterday itt and it was bad
I’ve eaten my crow regarding oats. I was obviously wrong. No regerts.
