Not sure what you mean by nationally relevant, I think UC is seeing now how relevant they are and how relevant Mick got them. If nationally relevant means finishing the year in the top 25-40 and first round exit, then I agree with Bohn, UC can do much better. Mick must have agreed as well as he was willing to put his alma mater/recruiting in limbo waiting for another job offer.
Your info is wrong. Brooks had other offers

He just recruited himself to cincy.


And Iíll stop debating you if you donít think mick made relevant again.


Remember itís fans like you who are setting the bar incrediblely high for Brannen.

I hope he lives up to your expectations

Well guess rivals information is wrong then.

6-11 in 13 years of coaching in the NCAAT play is not setting the bar high.

Let's break down everything you've said that was wrong. The idea that recruits "fall into" anyones laps is ridiculous. I know the thing is to not give Mick any credit for recruiting, but your pushing the limits of insanity if you don't give him credit for guys he actually got. Brooks had offers from St. Johns, Seton Hall and South Carolina.

Curtis decommitted from Xavier and now your saying his best offer was from a MAC school? Okay... Oh and he was ranked 150 nationally, only three AAC schools have a higher ranked recruit (and Wichita State's one better recruit is from Wichita). Even if we can do better (debatable that we can do much better consistently) he was still an excellent recruit and would have been the 5th highest rated recruit Mick has gotten since 2010.

Finishing top 25-40, yeah. We can check that, no surprise that UC finished in the top 25 each of the last three years, that's pretty nationally relevant. And while Mick didn't go far in the NCAA tournament, we've only had a first round exit 4 of the last 9 years.

Seton Hall, St Johns & South Carolina All offered brooks.


Brannen is 0-2 in the NCAA tourney.

If he misses the tourney 2 years in a row, I want him gone and let the new Coaching search to begin. we can't afford to miss 2 tourneys in a row in a brand new arena.

So in my opinion JB has 2 seasons to work some before a fan base with extremely high expectations starts calling for his head.

Add in that Curtis Crippled his own recruitment by wanting to stay in Ohio. He was not talking to schools that weren't in Ohio. It was down to OSU, Xavier and UC.

His loss will be felt down the line. He is ranked 114 in the new 247 rankings. And we dont have single player signed for 2019.

I have no idea what he is doing. I unfollowed him.


But he seems to change his mind a lot. But I feel for him, both coaches that recruited him to Xavier and Cincinnati left.

JHub stated that "Brooks recruited himself to UC." Isnt that falling into Micks lap? Brooks may have had other offers but they were not listed on rivals, which I was going by initially, but seems to not list them for whatever reason, take that up with them.

When Curtis was deciding after decommitting from X, again according to rivals had offers From Kent State, Toledo and Akron, along with UC, all of those are MAC schools.

LOL @ first round exit only in 4 of last nine years, again setting the bar fairly low for JB, he only needs one S16 in 13 years to match the prior coach.
