Well that is just cold as ice. Talk about throwing your players under the bus.
Couldn’t happen at a better school.
As if he was going to recruit a whole boatload of players to replace the ones he “kept.” What a slime ball.
Yeah, he is a total weirdo and an insufferable personality. They will eventually be decent under him because he will get some players, but I wouldn't want him.
Same. It's just frustrating that he's about to sign one of the top 5 recruits in the country and will end up with 3 in the top 100 in his first recruiting class. We're in the ACC and Pastner is pretty much working under the Gregory transfer model.
No doubt he will have them in the tournament sooner than later. It is a frustrating state of affairs all around.
The guy is just saying out loud what everyone has observed regarding the personnel. You can do all the teaching and game planning you want, but if the personnel you're operating with can't finish then you're left having to state the obvious. The same cliches over and over get very stale. At least the guy is aware of the shortcomings and he's in the process of upgrading the situation.
OTOH, this what GT has done, according to the AJC; Tech is shooting 29.3 percent from 3-point range, including 20.5 percent (18-for-88) in the past six games. After Friday’s games, the Jackets ranked 339th of 351 Division I teams in 3-point accuracy, last among power-conference teams. So at least we have this.
Give me someone who will state the obvious, and not be afraid to call one's charges out, as a whole, versus someone who continually provides us with coach speak.
Well...Pastner calls his guys out, too, by name even, saying "so and so needs to play better, and he knows it". But to me, that is different than just flat out saying none of your guys should have been on your team to start with and you should have processed them out. Even Saban has more tact than that.
That was an inexcusable thing for a coach to say. “This is on me because I did not run these guys off when they failed to be stand up guys and leave.” This will ultimately hurt his recruiting
Unfortunately, it will not hurt his recruiting at all. Coaches like him recruit kids just like him.
I'll just add that they also like to recruit guys that can play the style they want to coach.
What a dick
Sadly it won’t. The statement needs to be taken at the time, and in the context, it was made.
The better players out there now are going to see this as an opportunity.
No reason we are not recruiting better in basketball. No reason.
I can think of one reason: we’re not paying the players as much as other schools. I don’t even know if we are paying them at all.
Well, doesn't look like the fallout is hurting him much. Why would a Top 5 kid go play somewhere for a year where he can't possibly win a Natty?
iiwis. The cesspool is getting 'em, and we ain't doesn't bode well for us.
UGA will be a #10 seed in the tournament next year. Then after he leaves they will be back in the struggle to make the NIT. Not worried.
Assuming that he (Crean) isn't able to repeat getting more top recruits. Right now the percentages are favoring him being able to repeat the feat of landing "perceived" top talent.
I think he will improve their bottom line from where Fox had them, probably make the field more often than not if he stays long enough. I also think he will get frustrated that uga fans still won't care and he will jump as soon as he can to a basketball school.
More trips to Ron Bell's place?
