    Depends on how eager Phelps would be to help his former employer that fired him. I think the relationship between him and Miller is fine, but I wouldn’t get the sense that he’d push Bittle hard to go to UofA

    Not sure but he's buddies with Simpson too.

    Apparently the dad said he's going to a private school strictly because of Covid they think private school will be safer. But lots of people are thinking it's because of Phelps

    It was only right that with everyone else becoming eligible that Akinjo would as well. This is a big-time boost for the team.

    99% certain there will be. The bubble idea is gaining traction

    Probably the deepest team we have ever had, but no stars. Perhaps play them all less time and have them go all-out when they play?

    I'm still skeptical of a full season although UCLA sites are saying the same thing it looks more and more likely.

    With Arizona I still think the big question is the guards, if Akinjo and Brown play much together will they actually pass the ball. The foreign kid looked really good in that video so maybe he winds up playing more. I did see one guy on a UCLA board who says he saw Brown quite a bit and thinks his rep as a chucker is unfair, he was not on a good team so they needed him to score so he shot often, won't play that way at Arizona.

    And then how quickly Miller can get all the new kids to learn his defense

    I just hope zona gets the akinjo that showed glimpses as a freshman not the awfulness that he exhibited his second year before quitting at gtown.

    This is a team that Miller should be able to develop. There isn't a one and done on this year's roster so you won't have kids tuning Miller out while auditioning for the NBA Draft. There is no more such thing as UA good in terms of recruiting players. Miller needs to get talented kids and develop them, something he hasn't really done as a HC at UA because he hasn't really had a chance with all the one and dones. UA has been missing continuity, not talent. If Miller can start landing 3-4 year 4 star guys and actually do his job as a HC then UA can start to regain some of its national brand I feel its lost the last few years.
