Sean Miller's recruiting has been beastly since his arrival in the desert.

Furthermore, I'm reeeeally looking forward to this season. With Andre Drummond now heading to UConn the amount of NBA talent this year is outstanding.

Glad the KU and UCLA fans posted. You guys realize you're the ones hurting the most from Sean Miller's brilliance?

Not that Arizona basketball ever went away, but we're going to be in the mix for championships for years to come. Very exciting times. And all of our games will be on national television, so all you bitch ass UNC and Duke bandwagooneers can watch too.

Hope you're all ready for a lot of this next year:

Should be an interesting year for KU, considering they should have a tougher regular season schedule than last year. Also kinda glad they are not as highly ranked going in, as I find that being highly ranked in the preseason is pretty overrated.

Use the eye test and you'll figure out that there aren't as many upsets as the media likes to claim. They just say cliche things like that for the drama. There are some who call a 9 beating an 8 an upset. That's just ridiculous, but it's said all the time. The only real upset I can think of past the first weekend was VCU beating Kansas in the Elite 8.

KU has a history of losing to mid majors in the tournament. While I can't say I expected to VCU to beat KU, it came at no surprise. Bill Self simply isn't that good of coach; there, I said it. And from what I read on KU fansites, it seems many fans agree with me. The dude is so desperate he just offered a two star juco transfer from Florida... this is while he's trying to recruit TK; he doesn't seem so confident to me. With that said KU has a great tradition and will always field good teams.

KU won the whole tournament in 2008, and time before that was 1988, so I expect the next time to be by 2028. In the meantime, I will enjoy giving my hopes up.

I watched UofA hoops since i was baby and when i got there i sat through 3 different coaches (granted, we still went to the tourney) and then left right when Miller came in. I'm fucking PUMPED.

It's basically to the point that Miller is landing the majority of the recruits he targets. Even if they don't land Tarc, there are two other big men they are targeting that would be solid additions. They plan on adding another big man regardless of landing Tarc or not.

If Miller knows he isn't going to land someone, he stops pursuing. It happened with Josh Selby, Doron Lamb in the past and now Shabazz Muhammad this summer.He doesn't waste his time and he knows how to talk to kids. They still think they have a legit shot with Tarc.

I don't think it's actually that critical for him to put on weight, seeing as he'll be playing on the wing plenty. He just needs to start practicing against stiffer competition from what I've heard, it's become too easy for him on the AAU circuit. He's too quick and agile for the big guys, and too long for the smaller ones.

Jerrett on the other hand definitely needs some weight.

A predisposed dislike of the white 7 footer eurocenter + I've not actually heard much positive stuff about him other than his NBA-type body.


He just sounds like dead weight. I hope im completely wrong in the case that he comes to Zona.

I'm serious though about my previous statement. Someone like Shabazz Muhammed knows he's only going to be in the NCAA for one year. He needs someone who can develop him for the NBA. He wants to win a championship.

Knowing those three things, no matter how behind Miller and Zona are in his recruitment, don't you think it'd be worth throwing out a few messages to him saying, "Lets win a championship."? I played HS basketball and never even thought about DI, but if i was in Shabazz's shoes I'd definitely consider the idea. He knows everyone on our team, we're going to win and we'd be super close to home for him...

His father believes that UCLA can sell Shabazz's brand better than Arizona apparently. He's all about the hype, he said that if Tarc commits to U of A, then he'll definitely land in the Pac himself. If Kyle Anderson also commits to UCLA, that's a lot of hype for the pac 12, and Shabazz would be the face of all of that hype. Amazingly, that would mean the #1, #3, #4, #6, and #9 players would land in our conference. We should just be grateful that the talent on the west coast has finally come back around, and be thankful that we have the pipeline from Findlay Prep and the Oakland soldiers firmly pumping.

It doesn't look like we're getting Tarc, which is a shame. Although I am curious why there is some sort of weird collective thought that he sucks around Tucson... I don't get why he's being tagged with the tall-clumsy-bumbling-whiteboy archetype. He's got a high ceiling, and he already has quite a bit more skill than your average highschool big man. Not to mention he is a legit 7 footer, and any 7 footer with an inkling of skill is a blessing on the college level, where the legit 5 is a rarity.

Fair enough. I guess I'm exposed to college football douchebags too often to pick out the just plain enthusiastic ones.

As for Joshua Smith, if he can keep the weight off, I can see UCLA benefiting huge from having a center like him. But if he can't, I could see them slipping up just like last year. Still, I think it's a good start. I'm excited to be going to UCLA for the beginning of rebuilding, it'd be nice if they could make a run of it in a couple years. Not with Arizona doing the recruiting they have been though.. so props on that you smug fucker ;)

Right on. Considering our team has lost some heart breakers in the past, I try to hold my smugness to a minimum. There's just a lot to be excited about...

Also, I always saw Smith's size/weight as an advantage. We had some trouble putting a body on him this year. I think he'll be a fucking beast by his senior year (assuming he stays that long).


EDIT* Pauly Pavilion is no more, right? I think I recall reading something about a new gym...

knytt
09-11-2011, 12:58 AM
Well his weight can be an advantage for sure, it's the possible fluctuation that scares me more than anything. If he gets under control, which I'm sure he will, we'll just be hoping he stays till senior year.

And yeah that's the only bummer. Our games are split between the L.A Sports Arena and the Honda Center while Pauly gets rebuilt. Which is gonna take forever from what I hear. That's the UCLA norm though, forever under construction.

After watching the Red-Blue game, I must say I think we're even better this year. We relied a lot on one player last year every game, yet somehow he made it happen game in and game out. Much more balanced, we'll probably lose more games this year, but I feel like we're tougher to defend and maybe a little tougher defensively. NJ is a baller, Josiah is fucking fast, and Chol and Sidiki can make a little bit of the impact. The returners have all improved a lot. It's gonna be fun. Everyone has had us in the "most overrated" category going in to the season, which isn't unfounded, but I think we'll be great this year.

After watching the Red-Blue game, I must say I think we're even better this year. We relied a lot on one player last year every game, yet somehow he made it happen game in and game out. Much more balanced, we'll probably lose more games this year, but I feel like we're tougher to defend and maybe a little tougher defensively. NJ is a baller, Josiah is fucking fast, and Chol and Sidiki can make a little bit of the impact. The returners have all improved a lot. It's gonna be fun. Everyone has had us in the "most overrated" category going in to the season, which isn't unfounded, but I think we'll be great this year.

HOLY BALLS SIDIKI JOHNSON IS A BEAST. Dude was hitting threes, turn around jumpers, battling for bounds... I'm very impressed with him and I think it's way too early, but I do see him developing his turnaround and perimeter game as did a certain number 23. I'm very impressed.

Losing KP is a big loss. But he's with the team and can be back playing within a month if things go well.

Pac 12- Tony Wroten Jr. is legit, UCLA's post presence will be dangerous and watch out for Oregon's defense. Super excited about this season.


UNC is ranked #1 in the nation. Y'all probably already know that.
Just wanted to mention it. :)

Did UNC lose anyone of importance this past season? You guys will be good but you'll fail in the postseason (xo)



Anybody else out there want to talk hoops? Pac 12 or not! Hey Momo Jones is playing for Iona this year; I hear they're going to be outstanding! What else....

oh it looks like UA has a legit shot at this Kaleb Tarczewski kid from NH. Grant Jerrett, Brand Ashley and Zeus would make the best front court in the country. Zona's looking good. 8^)

I honestly don't like Tarczewski but you won't see me post that anywhere else but here. Could ruffle some feathers with some folks. He admitted to having conifidence issues and he's a lug around the basket. I trust Miller can get the most out of him if he chooses UA, but I just don't have the most confidence in 7-foot white guys who play soft around the basket. Andre Drummond made him look like Kirk Walters in Vegas.

Whoa, seriously? I hadn't heard he left. What was his reasoning?

Officially? He was "homesick" and wanted to be closer to NY.

The real reason? He didn't want to battle with Josiah Turner and Jordin Mayes for starters minutes and he was basically nudged out the door when he was caught drinking in the locker room. He had almost transfered after his freshman year but decided to give it another go.

It means that his big mouth could potentially cost Arizona another recruit. What that idiot doesn't realize is that when he goes public with info like that (calling Tarc a silent commit when in reality he isn't), other schools have insiders in the media that pay attention to that and KU has put more pressure on the Tarc recruitment since then. I still think Arizona has an excellent shot but that guy needs to learn when to shut the fuck up about stuff. He's more concerned with "beating the competition" than providing legit information and helping the basketball program. The sad thing is that he has been able to establish connections over the years and he burns almost every bridge he crosses.

I think I told you that he almost single-handedly cost the team the Josiah Turner commitment. Turner was locked in to Arizona for at least two-to-three months before he officially committed but his dumbass sent media coverage to an event with Turner where media wasn't allowed. Doris Ward (Turner's mother) saw the guy there and totally lost it. Turner almost went to another school (Kansas or UCLA were still involved) because of it.

This must be a first draft with the official version to come later--they've mistakenly omitted Washington.... ........ .

Like Aurgasm mentioned earlier Tony Worten Jr. should be a good one, but Terrance Ross is our stud. By all accounts he's primed for a big year and could be NBA bound already. We also lost our three top scorers in Thomas, Bryan-Amaning, and Holliday--the latter two being our two best defenders. I'm not sure what to make of this Washington team so I'll maintain a policy of cautious optimism until we can reassess things at the beginning of conference play.

Tarc is a good get. Is he going to end up being the 7th best basketball in his class 20 years down the road when we look back? No, probably not. But he is probably the 7th best college basketball prospect because of his superior size and fluidity, making him a can't miss impact prospect. And don't hold it against him because Drummond made him look bad, Drummond makes everyone look bad.

And don't hold it against him because Drummond made him look bad, Drummond makes everyone look bad.

I know all of this. I have covered / scouted Tarc in person before. I was not impressed with much. He was maybe the third or fourth big man I saw all weekend behind Drummond, Upshaw and junior Brian Bridgewater.... and Bridgewater is 6'6". He also openly admitted after his struggles in Vegas that he has confidence issues.

He is far from a "can't miss" prospect. He'll be fortunate to crack the rotation in his freshman year and will have to battle for time as a sophomore (I've even heard that he could potentially redshirt his first year). He won't beat out Chol, Sidiki, Ashley, Jerrett or even Kyryl right away.

Miller likes the guy so I will trust him assuming he can land him, but Tarc is probably one of, if not THE most overrated prospect in the 2012 class. He is just another Jeff Withey in my eyes.

I'd argue Withey, has been horribly handled, and his own mindset has killed him. He COULD have been quite good, but he never developed because of the situation he created for himself. He's a project, every 7'0 HS senior not named Andre Drummond will be.

They just have a lot of battles on the recruiting war and lately a few of the recruits that KU thought they had locked down or a really good shot at (Josiah Turner, Brandon Ashley and now Tarczewski) all chose to go to Arizona.

It probably doesn't help KU's case that Bill Self is a total jerk-off.

After watching the game last night Chol is going to play a bigger role than I thought he would and Sidiki Johnson is probably going to play a smaller role than I originally thought.

Pretty much copy/pasted what I commented on your FB Gribzz, but to the rest of the board, I'll expose you to my crack-head opinions-

Maybe past 5 years we've been seeing more and more of this. Imagine a major conference team gets blue-chip, high-end recruits. They jump to the pros after 1, maybe 2 years max.

Mid-Major team, like Middle Tennessee or Kent St (who handled Huggy-bear's West Virginia squad pretty easy yesterday too), gets 2nd and 3rd tier recruits. They sit on the bench and don't play much their freshmen and sophomore seasons. Even get, OMG! Red-shirted! They mature physically, they learn the game, they get savvy. And all of a sudden their starting lineup has 3 seniors, and 2 juniors. They're the much more mature, smarter, and even stronger team because they've developed their games in every possible way.

But this year, which could be nice, had a lot less talented freshmen jump to the NBA because they were too afraid of a lockout. So this year could be one of the better years for college basketball in awhile... and in the end make the NCAA tournament have the favorites more likely to shine through... I highly doubt it will be a Butler-UConn final where you're seriously wondering if the best teams played for the National title.

Well, he did tell the Columbus Dispatch, before last season even started, that he was sticking around for at least 2 years to work on his game, so no one (in Columbus at least) really thought he was going to leave.

It looks like he's expanded his mid-range shot to be a lot more effective. His free throw percentage is likely to go up as well according to coach Matta.

He's a beast, no doubt, but a beast that is surrounded with a a lot of young talent, sans Buford who is prolly 36 years old.

Thank god for a NBA labor dispute to get him scared about going pro early huh? He's gonna be a monster this year, but he does have one more season of beefin with this guy too: Trevor Mbakwe (they had a couple of decent wars in the low post last season)-

If my Gophers can just get "average" point guard play this season, they should be solid. When Al Nolen got hurt last year, they went in the tank. But they brought in 2 point guards to try and "right" that this year.

Agreed...I was stoked at their strong start last year, despite all their offseason issues. After Nolen went down, they definitely never recovered. Tubby will still bring them in, they still got some height and they still have Mbakwe the beast.

Solid game by your boys...Duke got rattled early, recovered, then they just couldn't put anything together after that second OSU run. As much as I hate Buckeye football, their basketball teams the last two years have been easy to root for. Duke's a very good team, not great, this year but they needed a reality check and last night's game served them well.

Nevada has been overvalued so far, they were predicted to win the WAC mainly because they had 95% of their roster returning, (and they play in the WAC). They've shot awful so far this year, and I really don't see much improvement on the horizon because they have no dedicated 3-pt shooters and a disjointed offense in general. The talent is there but the pieces aren't being used right.. I think UW will pull away late for a comfortable win..

Still...hoping Nevada improves while the season goes on, Burton the PG is an NBA talent that needs help.

The Reeves Nelson saga is such a black eye for Ben Howland and made a mockery of proud program. Howland looked weak, desperate, and at the mercy of a player he clearly thought the team couldn't succeed without. With that kind of institutional discipline and control can you really be surprised with a team that has guys vastly out of shape and not hustling on the court?

Also, Nelson needs professional help. The really sad thing is he'll probably transfer to play his senior season at some shitty school when he could have completed a degree at one of the best schools in the country.
