Decent bench coach who can't recruit vs good recruiter who can't coach
Hold up now. OU was in the Final Four in '16, the Sweet 16 in '15. I want to say they made it to the Elite 8 in '09 (the last year Blake Griffin was there.)
When Rick Barnes was at Texas he had a couple of Elite 8's, a couple of Sweet 16's, and a Final Four over that decade and a half (or so) span.
True, football is the money maker. But, there's some success in basketball that has to be acknowledged as well.
My point was not clear enough... VCU coaches going to the football schools have not been much of a success and certainly not a sustained success.
Didn't Blake Griffin go to Okie State?
Nope, he's an Oklahoma Sooner,.. you should Google before you quack.
My bad--have that issue myself at times.
Everything I've read and heard about him seems to suggest that he's a young basketball version of Nick Saban and the complete antithesis of Johnny "I'm in over my Head" Jones..........................
He sorta sounds like miles.
