    Maaaan that’s stretching things. So you’re postulating that all the negative press is helping the recruiting efforts? Miller has proven to be a great recruiter I think he’s likely redoubled his efforts and it’s born fruit. Which has been amazing.

    Giving up any facetime for the program is just plain stupid and bad business. It’s not about giving Greenberg information, it’s about using a platform to give potential recruits information. In the widest platform available. Again, if he carries this with him for long enough it is going to impact the program negatively. It may just be a matter of time.

    Well multiple possibilities. Miller is killing it because he's a great recruiter, he's killing it because people think he cheated and got away with it, but another possibility is certainly that kids think Miller and UA got wronged and in a sense it's helping him.

    I think the fact that he persevered and didn't just quit or tell UA to fire him might be helping him now.

    I really don't know I'm just saying I don't think the ESPN stuff is harming recruiting if it were, he wouldn't have this great class.

    I pointed out earlier UA was the only school to not suspend someone. There's more differences, USC killed it in recruiting, but they hired the dad of an elite player, who's an AAU coach, that's how they did it. Louisville is killing it too, but they fired their coach, their AD, and hired a new coach. Of all the schools involved in the FBI story that are recruiting well, UA is really the only one doing it with the same situation, minus Book.

    I watched about the last quarter and a half so I missed the first quarter explosion by both Mannion and Green. When i was watching Mannion was missing his jumper but making one spectacular drive or pass after another. Does a great job keeping his head up on drives.

    Green has grown he looked 2-3 inches taller than the last time I saw him, they list him at 6'5" he might be taller unless Mannion is shorter than listed. Green doesn't play much defense so not a surprise that Nico lit him up.

    The kid in that game who impressed me was the big on Green's team, Braxton Meah, needs to get much stronger but man he dunks everything near the rim and he has very impressive hands for a young big. I looked him up on 247 and there doesn't seem to be much of any buzz on him, he sure looked like a Pac 12 level recruit last night

    Alabama is a must win game to get into the tournament. Big game that will be heavily discussed in March if we want to play in the tournament.

    NCAA will likely use this loss to keep us out of the tournament. No matter what we do in PAC 12. Then again, you can’t fall behind by 19 points on the road. Painful loss

    Coleman has fallen off of a cliff since Maui. Akot has been a monumental disappointment. Why isn't Doutrive playing? He has at least looked okay when on the court, as opposed to Smith and Barcello.

    My expectations before the season that this wasn’t a tourney team so I won’t be that disappointed.

    I had the same expectations coming into the year as you (no tournament) but I will disappointed if they gel in February and this loss and PAC 12 weakness is used to keep them out.

    Sounds like the team went to the strip club before the game ala Varsity Blues.

    The lack of effort and poor coaching are astounding.
