Or their strategy was way different.


I was thinking the same thing when I saw this thread. The Saul, and even the JC staffs both seemed to keep things closer to the vest, while Boals' staff has the approach of letting everyone know who they're offering. I'm not sure which approach might be better until we see a few more recruiting classes.


Going out on a limb that Saul and companyís strategy failed miserably.


And we'll know if Boals failed in a couple years. Offering a lot early has a big downside. Guessing you were never recruited for D1 ball.



Someone is still pouting! You cast a wide net early and narrow or it narrows as ithe process unfolds. Each year, aside from offers, you will begin with a hundred plus contacts and evaluations and each year you knock that list down. You may want to move on Jerry.


Trust me, I played ball at a higher level than you did. Who's pouting? Instead I am disappointed in the immature posters who supposedly have degrees from Ohio acting like Saul was a ZERO. Grow up to those it applies to ... I can names names but I wont. It's obvious from reading posts.


Overly sensitive today? No one is acting like Saul was a zero, those are your words. Saul is a great person, good coach, heís proven that at other places, just did not work out here. And no one really cares about your glory days. Tim OíShea played high level ball too, man that really translated well.



Your drivel is just that .. drivel. And you played ball where? Read your prior post .. and if able to comprehend then message me back. You know zilch about college basketball recruiting, perhaps because you were never recruited.

I really donít know if there is a positive correlation for cheerleading and basketball, I know that the they have cheerleading competitions, but they donít have a national signing day and they donít drive revenue like division 1 basketball. I think the rebuttal was directed at Jerry who says he played ball at a high level.


Nobody despises to lose more than I do. That's got me into trouble over the years, but it also made a man of mediocre ability into a pretty good coach. Woody Hayes

LOL. Must be nice to live in a fantasy world. Reality is it was NOT you being recruited.

No it wasnít me, but Iíve had a lot of personal experience, both inside and outside the process. Your attitude that since no one else here was actually recruited then we know nothing is laughable. My comments on this matter were simply fact, the process begins years out with a wide net that is then narrowed down. But at the end of the day, I do not need you to validate my career or knowledge of college athletics, a field that today I still work in.

FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE! I don't know who they'll be, but it really appears that we're going to get a couple of really good ballers!!! I don't foresee us having to "settle" for marginal Division I or high Division II players; that's for sure!

Thank you for validating my point. I guess that is as close to "I was wrong as you'll ever get". Get in the last word, as you always must. I'll not reply. I wish we had an IGNORE feature here. Go back, and READ, and comprehend ALL of your posts here. Comprehend your condescending attitudes in many of those posts. Mature, and realize many people know, as much, if not more than you do.

Iím not wrong, I simply stated I was never recruited to play DI basketball, that makes me a lesser person in your eyes so be it. Again, been involved in the Collegiate game for 30 years now in one form or another. The fact is all coaches cast a wide net, but instead of disputing facts, youíd rather degrade others. Thatís fine, most on here understand that about you.

You offer a unique perspective to this board from your background. Playing and/or being recruited at D1 is not a prerequisite to recruiting or just having an informed opinion on the subject. After all, if that was true, Coach Saul should not have been allowed to recruit coming from his experience only playing at D3. And Coach Boals was recruited by large programs.

I am optimistic for the Bobcats. Boals has proven he can recruit, especially during his years with that team up the road. I don't think many coaches could have done what he has in such a short period of time.

Starting to make a little more sense as Scoonie just left the o$u coaching staff for the Memphis Grizzlies'. Word is that his son will not play for Dublin Coffman this upcoming season.

Haliburton and Bane both drafted in the first round of this week's NBA draft. Haliburton 11th and Bane 30th.
