It may look like
a layup drill anyway. They aren't likely to be very good on defense. This team is going to need to win some track meets to pick up W's I'm afraid.

I have a hard time believing that rumor.
Even if Nolley, Cone and Bede all averaged 40 minutes each there are still 80 more minutes to fill and that's not all coming from Horne and Wilkins, and Johnson isn't going to sub in for guards and wings who need a breather. Coach MY worked hard to get players reclassified from 2020 to 2019 just to have enough bodies to field a team. I'd be surprised to see any of Cattoor, Alleyne, or Ojiako redshirt, especially now that Bongo is out. Another injury would be a quick end to that redshirt.

Maybe Arvin is thinking about Aluma.

I was speaking more to the defense...
But both moves were made in-season when you entered your first game of the year with pretty much the same roster that ended the season

If you need big in-season changes, to both offense and defense in consecutive seasons, there was a problem in how you either built the roster or how to put it in a position to win...neither are good.

There is a thought among coaches that Buzz treats his program as more of a GM than a traditional coach. He just wants to put a roster together and then have guys on his staff who can figure out how to make the pieces work. He has a general idea of how he wants his teams to play, but he is more macro than micro.

This thought process leaves you open to things like entering a year without contingency plans when injuries/suspensions happen, needing changes when your philosophy becomes stagnant and you become super easy to scout.

I say what i said about credit because:

1) Buzz loves credit
2) head coaches typically dont give their assistants the credit for philosophy changes because if it doesnt work out, you are essentially throwing the assistant under the bus.

Someone asked about his family - they will be staying in Maryland until the end of the school year.

With Fritz, Tulane is no longer a pushover
I'm a little surprised GT went with Collins instead of Fritz. But I think Fritz will be in the ACC soon. Perhaps even as our next coach in a year or two.

Maybe we could have planned better but we were doing ok on offense
last year until 5 got hurt. I'm not sure why they would want to run the offense through KJ instead of through the all-time assists leader in school history. As for the roster, the team lost Clarke on 10/31, and they still thought they could get Nolley before the start of the season, too. I imagine they had to adjust to those losses as well.

Also, I'm not sure what you mean about credit. Kudos to Buzz for letting McNeilly take the credit for something Jamie actually did? I didn't think most people even knew he did it, and I don't believe Jamie was telling people about it. He's always seemed to be extremely loyal to Buzz so I can't see him ever doing that.

There was a lot of square-pegging a round hole during Buzz's tenure and they were slow to react on a number of the issues

Kudos to him for letting McNeilly take the credit, but it should have happened from the jump, the roster was what it was many months prior

But they most definitely pay players prior to and during their time at Duke...and yes, they have to

Kentucky has a similar set-up...Kansas as well...theyre only competing with the high level prospects with a handful of schools

I dont believe the silent Duke commit thing either, though I dont think he selects VT in the end

Jamie was also the one who revamped the offense to run through KJ last year
...so he saved our season one year by changing the defense, and then the next year by changing the offense. He doesn't get nearly enough credit for the work he did while he was here.
