i'm fine with high expectations but throwing Steele under the bus this early is not the answer. finding one small minute detail in one game doesn't define Steele as a coach yet you use that as him being a "deer in headlights". what if you made one small mistake at whatever job you have and then had every stockholder ready to fire you for that??? doesn't make sense.skyhops wrote: ↑Tue Mar 10, 2020 10:35 amWhy is it wrong to say is more intense, that is a fact. I hope things change but the deer in the headlights from Steele is getting not to mention the hot mix that showed him not knowing who had the ball and who was in the game against CU. Steele has had top 25 recruits the last two years and veteran teams, I’ll give him another to get “his players” then it’s time to get nervous. Watch Kelseys up tempo offense and tell me his doesn’t have a better offense than Steele (still no rich father in-law donor though). I guess I just have higher Xpectations.
what kind of recruits did Steele have TWO years ago??? those weren't HIS besides Welage and Hankins. he's had ONE class he's been able to recruit on his own and i'd say he's gotten A LOT out of the dudes that have been healthy which are Carter, KyKy, and Freemantle.
Kelsey's up tempo offense would not and cannot equate or make the jump to the BE. he can do it in his conference because his opponents aren't as good as defensive teams. and it would take him at least 4 years to recruit guys that would be able to handle that type of tempo vs the BE.
Steele can't run that type of offense with the guys he has because he doesn't have HIS guys yet. he knows who he has and what kind of players they are right now. he knew from the end of last season that this team's defense would be what carried them and that if they bought into defending, they should be in pretty much every game, and minus a couple, they have been. he knew they wouldn't be able to outscore teams so he''s taken them from like a KENPOM DEF rating of 90 last season to in the teens this season. that is a HUGE jump. that's why we still have a shot at the NCAA tournament. that's called COACHING.
once again, if you THINK Kelsey is more intense than Steele, that's fine. that's YOUR opinion. doesn't make it true from watching a couple games and listening to one interview. but that's fine.
