Iím not mad that mick left or the John Brannen is our new coach.

But there are UC fans who made the last few years miserable after every loss. People acted like the Mick Cronin era was this oppressive regime and that John Brannen is this beautiful breath of fresh air. Itís not hard to see I liked Mick Cronin, but it was also clear a huge portion of the fan base thought we could do better. And a lot of them think a John Brannen is the guy. So my expectations are high. If this guy is better then our old Coach then Iím all for it. I want to win. But I also donít want to see this team take a dip this season. I want to make the tourney, I want to make a run.

So im considering this season a pickup right where we left off kinda deal. Iíd critic the game the same way if mick were coaching. You have Keith Williams, Jarron Cumberland, Tre Scott & Jaevin Cumberland in your first year as a UC coach, you have 2 of your guys in the starting lineup and you have a sold out arena to boost you. I expect results this year. So Iím just pointing out things that I see. If Mick Cronin coached this years OSU game, I think itís fair to say people would have critiqued his handling of Jarron Cumberland, his lack off playing time for elite freshman and his defense in the 2nd half.
I know Iíd personally have those same comments no matter who the coach was.


Next year can be the rebuild. This year we need to win. Because if recruits arenít signing with Brannen because they donít know him, then next year they wonít sign with us because we had an all American and didnít win with him. Brannen has to use Jarron Cumberland to win but also make a name for himself.

No.

He is not supposed to be a senior in high school.

He was always a 2019 recruit. But when he had his issues, he was going to go to Prep school and be a 2020 recruit.

But then there were rumors that his prep school didnít want him and he went back to his original class. He is every bit of a college Freshman as anyone else

My biggest point was that we basically played just 7 guys. Clearly that took a toll on the defense in the 2nd half.

Harvey never saw the floor in the 2nd half.

And McNeal played more minutes then anyone else. He simply cannot do that when he applies the kind of effort he did.

Brannen said it himself he only played 7 guys and wasnít happy about it

There is no depth at the pg position, that is why McNeal played the most minutes, Adams-woods is a question mark right now still adapting to playing pg

Concerning Cronin not playing elite frosh soon enough had to do with a lack of good options in front and a demonstration of better value by certain frosh. Harvey has not accomplished that yet and he may not considering the quality options in front of him. But if he does eventually outplay even 1 of them he is going to be very very good.
