I thought Travis Steele handled his hires fast and quick and also picked guys who had deep recruiting ties to a certain region,

Now they have a top 20 class.

We need to make a splash with at least one assistant. I have zero desire to make UC NKU 2.0 and him keep his same staff

One recruiter from a good region. One top NKU assistant who knows the system. Maybe One former UC player. Then fill it in.

We have time...no need to rush hire. Brannen can reach out to recruits right now. Getting the right people in place is what we want. If we miss out on a few recruits so be it.

TheLivingLegend will become famous soon enough
Everyone should just relax. TheLegend has submitted his application via the UC job posting webpage. I expect a call from UC athletics at any moment.

The university of Cincinnati would like to thank you for submitting your resume. However, we do not recognize “4/20 enthusiast” with two winky faces as “skill set you guys need on the roaching staff”. We do however share your viewpoint that “Roach JB will light it up” and that Xavier girls “are better suited for radio”.

So let's just discredit the NBA, where the pros play I mean, where you have a CAREER where you RETIRE. That is where these kids are aspiring to go.. It's harder coaching grown men I personally think, challenges of that certainly helps with younger men. Like I've said before recuriting is nothing than being personable and selling a program pretty cut and dry, everyone has ties some the same ties hence some ties don't even matter really but to the aspect of getting a foot in the door.. With most recruits being associated to UC should Garner respect. Cronin seemed more focused on his guys, he did try for splashes here and there... Hopefully Brannnen can get some solid guys in here to help. He doesn't seem like the winning personality type tbh, maybe great at X's and O's but you still need talent there's a package to being a coach.. he's gotta make the right moves n no we can't have an NKU overhaul this is UC we really should be and shouldn't be trying to get in a major conference at least as far as b-ball is concerned
