It's going to be hard to stop modern offenses doing that. And it's not something it seems like he wants to correct given his comments. He'd rather try to beat you with pressure and rebounding. I think he wants to fix the offense, but he's got pretty bad scheme issues there too. I'm hopeful, but these are the things that worry me. He wasn't playing modern basketball at UNCG.
Oh, I guess I did. His team was very good at three point defense in 2018 and 2021 though, so hopefully he's learning.

I do like not fouling, but Sampson has success with the commit so many fouls the refs stop calling them strategy.

I am also fine with Wes Miller, I do wonder why Scott Nagy wasn't interviewed if we are going the veteran coach route. But I suppose Wes is quite a bit younger and a bit more successful.

Pedon might outrage a lot of the people who want Martin. He's not much (if any) more qualified.
Hes beat 100 top 50 teams, dude hes from a small conference what the hell do you want.

Sorry, didn't include the /s tag. Poking fun at Justin because that was one of his favorite complaints about Brannen.

I was on board with many of the other names. Marty, Archie, gates, tang, etc

Personally I wanted Martin and Exel but that must have fallen apart

Why?

We just landed a guy who had legit interviews at UNC and by most accounts was the runner up.

Hes young, hungry, relatable, and knows defense.

Offense can be fixed with better players.


I can understand not loving him. But saying John was better is just short sighted.

Im excited, and I just listened to CBS sports podcast and they did a 10 minute segment on our hire and they seem to love it. So does Goodman, borzello, and others,

LOL most of college basketball thinks we hit a home run except UC fans. John Brannen was a nobody to the national media.

This is a far better hire than Brannen, he was in running for UNC job lol. You think Brannen had chances like that?

What is modern about Martin and Van Exel though? We are going through an entire rebuild. We need a guy whos been a head coach.
