    I am so disappointed in our coaching staff this year. First, they go all in on QG. Then they assign our least experienced assistant to our top targets. Hops not the HC yet, why wasn't he taking the lead w QG and other top NE targets. This has been the worst recruiting year since Carmelo came to SU. I saw this happen before Troy Weaver came in as an assistant coach; remember LaSean Howard and Sam Spann. Oshae Brissett and Bourama Sidibe might be nice players but pale in comparison to the talent Duke brings in each year. The immediate future looks bleak until we shake up our coaching staff.

    Our recruiting pales in comparison to Duke (and UK) virtually every year.

    The once in a blue moon we get a Top Ten recruit is a huge deal for us -
    those programs usually get multiple Top Ten guys every year.

    Duke and UK are on their own tier when it comes to recruiting. No shame in that. I bring it up all the time, but there is no reason why SU couldn't be on the same level as a program like Zona. The fact that Zona can come into SU's recruiting stomping grounds and land more top 50 players than them is flat out embarrassing.

    Time for change people and a BIG change, "Clean the House". Like I said in previous post, JB to retire and for us to get the best coach available out there and some top recruiters/assistants and start rebuilding and do it now so with all the scholarships for the next few years we can build a respectable team and a staff that can recruit and teach our players, "mainly the bigs" how to play. I haven't seen a SU team regress so much in one year and it isn't because we lost so much talent because we got good players to replace them, its the whole team. I see coach JB is not as intense at coaching as he has in the past few years and maybe due to him ready to retire. But as far as Hopkins, he is NOT the right replacement for JB, and as far as the asst, coaches, they were great player for SU while they were here but they are not coaches that can recruit, "maybe other than Autry" but we need ones that can teach these young players how to play and work as a team. Yes you are going to blast me but I as a SU fan is killing me to see this just continue and I see it is getting worst.. jm

    I've never really had a problem with our recruiting until this year. While I've questioned some of the guys we've gone after the past few years the overall body of work was acceptable.

    Seems like you have the same frustrations and know we could be in a lot of trouble in the coming years.

    I love your opinions and knowledge and while appreciate your reports and keeping us all in the know, but right now you're scaring the hell out of me.

    I heard JB is telling kids not to come here and is instructing the assistants not to visit any kids cuz he wants the program in the worst possible shape when he leaves

    It's laughable and disturbing at the same time. Maybe the recruiting restriction of being only able to have two coaches on the road at the same is hamstringing the staff. (I'm trying very hard to give them some loophole). Still, this is really looking like amateur hour.

    JB snoozing at multiple recruiting events and sending GMac to recruit a gang of five stars should be scaring the hell out of you more than anything I post and say.

    Oh, it does...... I've voiced it a few times on here but I try not to harp on it as I don't want to get trashed for talking about the golden child.

    I said what I had to say on here fearing I was going to get the raft of God put down on me. However I found out that there are a few others on here feel the same.

    Gmac... I'm not afraid to say it. He was a great player here and deserves all the love in the world from SU. But that does not make him a coach or a recruiter. It's time SU looked outside the past players base and brought in a recruiter like they did with Weaver and Murphy. Without the AAU ties you don't stand a chance with some of these kids.
