LOL...literally, I laughed outloud!
1st recruit he brings in: 3* PF out of high school. When is the last time that happened at SEMO?
I believe Tyler Stone and Niņo Johnson were. Josh Langford was top 100 so probably 3 or maybe even 4.
Stone was a Mizzou recruit and he transferred so that doesn't count.
He just said there star level coming out of high school, and Stone was so that is why I put him.
I meant he brought in a 3* from high school. Didn't get him as a transfer.
You might be right about Nino Johnson though.
Gotcha. I just thought you meant players who were 3 stars out of high school, not necessarily where they went first. Therefore Langford wouldn't qualify either. So I guess Nino would be the qualifier, a few recruiting services had him at 3 I believe. But I like Anderson's potential better already. Anyone who played at Oak Hill has game.
Yeah, too bad Nino and Nutt never really worked well together. I am hoping Ray will be a good player developer and can really make something of this guy and Marcus Wallace (showed a lot of potential last year)
I'm banking on if anything, Ray is a player developer. I just hope he is able to show it. I believe he was well on his way to showing it at MSU put kept getting hammered by injuries to his best players that he was developing (as well as dismissals. I think he should be able to put together an OVC title competing team in a few years.
Telvin Wilkerson was also a 3* recruit. Same year as Nino but obviously left after his freshman year.
Isaiah Jones was also a 3-star recruit out of HS. You can't win the OVC without multiple 3 star guys actually, pretty much everyone has one or two.
So it seems that SEMO has had several 3 star guys, maybe they just didn't have the coach to get it done. Apparently SEMO felt that way.
I have seen his individual workouts. Intense. I would definitely say from a development standpoint head and shoulders above where SEMO was.
No, not really. People just completely underestimate the talent level it actually takes to be competitive in the OVC. Murray has 5-6 3 star guys every year, Belmont similar. Murray even has a 4-star guy this year. UT-Martin has 4 or 5 this upcoming season.
Having one, maybe two, really doesn't get you anywhere in this league other than 6th-7th place.
Not if you can develop players.
3 and 4 star guys can be developed too.
Yeah those were the guys I'm talking about. I'm just saying SEMO had 3 star guys, but not as many as other programs. To compete with those programs you have to be able to develop those guys that you have better than other head coaches at other programs. Apparently SEMO felt that wasn't being done.
The new assistant recruited Kenneth Faried, so there's that.
Hey start your own thread, don't hi jack mine! This one is dedicated to the firing of Ray. He is winless at SEMO how long they gonna put up with this?
Allstate you're correct. A zero in the win column doesn't look good. However does a 3-0 start to the season get you to jump on board?
Soo...who is this new assistant?

Nutt wasn't getting the job done. Everyone was picking SEMO to win the division two years ago, I believe, and the team barely made the playoffs. Nutt simply lacked the ability to develop players and it was obvious.
