Just don't understand how some of you think JB can do no wrong. He is not perfect and quite simply getting beat in recruiting lately. Talk all you want about development but recruiting talent helps too. What about Horford? No one said a word about the staff unable to keep him around to help. Is it ALL on Horford. The staff couldn't recruit it's own guy to stick around. That was a fail. Simply put. Our last few recruits ate not up to big 10 champ standards. Improvement needs to happen. We ate in on a lot of 2016. But that is a world of difference than actually landing them. Because we failed to land our big targets the last 2 years with exception to Chatman.
So what if we're not getting every guy at the top of the list? That's part of the game.
You don't ever mention FIT which is just as important as anything else. FIT is why a guy like Spike or Stu can come in and be successful at Michigan where they might not at another college.
I don't think anyone is suggesting Beilein is going to make Duncan an NBA player. But at 45% shooting from 3 with a 6'7" frame...what better coach to use him than Beilein?
It's about fit and system. Not stars.
Yes, Booker, Kennard, etc we missed on. But we went for them.
MAAR and Dawkins weren't top of the list but the situation changed when we took them. And we wouldn't have taken them if we didn't WANT to in THAT situation.
...you can't seem to understand that though. You'd rather just whine.
