    Maybe the biggest Dawg BBall recruit since Dominique.

    I’m excited for the season. CTC has the coaching skills of Fox (maybe better, but tome will tell) AND the recruiting skills not seen in decades. We are a program who could literally launch in to the top 20 consistently for the next 10 years. Our fan base is ready!

    Would love for UGA to make the tournament consistently. In a state with this much talent that shouldn't be an issue.

    I had gave up on Georgia BB, but I will be watching the Antman every chance I can.

    Mike keep giving BB updates.... I enjoy knowing what's going on with the team. Hopefully they will give us something to cheer for this year!

    To my fellow Dawgs we need to get behind this program and support them. We were a sleeping giant in FB to a degree but with the BB talent in our state/region.... Crean's got a chance to build something special! But this group of players has to step up and have good season...

    Go Dawgs!

    Gawd help us if Crean can't coach better than Fox. Remember, Fox took a roster with 2 ALL SEC players and lost to Belmont in Athens in the 1st round of the NIT. His coaching skills were worse than his recruiting skills.

  • TuckyDawgTuckyDawg Posts: 460 ✭✭✭✭ Senior

    If he makes Georgia a contender, he will be out of there in three years.

  • greshamdiscogreshamdisco Posts: 2,031 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Edwards could have gone pro already although a year will make a huge difference and him less risky as an investment. It would be a miracle if we keep him around more than a year. It will be a fun year though!

  • MikeGriffithMikeGriffith Posts: 762 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    It will be a fun year at The Steg, I'm sure! There were some fun times last season, as bad as the results were.

  • KyotoPhantasyKyotoPhantasy Posts: 67 ✭✭✭ Junior

    I think Crean is very aware of the potential of UGA BB. If UGA is a contender in 3 years, the school will pony up to keep him. Only a few schools could take him (KY, Duke, Kansas types), and they are not ones that will come calling.

    @MikeGriffith any news on money being spent on the Basketball program?

  • TuckyDawgTuckyDawg Posts: 460 ✭✭✭✭ Senior

    Antman is for sure a one and done. I should have make my post a little clearer. I was talking about CTC being gone.

  • GeorgiaGirlGeorgiaGirl Posts: 964 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    yeah college basketball isn't like college football, you can go one year and leave. Edwards is one and done unless something awful happens.

    Not the worst thing in the world for Georgia despite how bad 18/19 looked. If Edwards shows well and improves on his weaknesses (he sometimes is too much of a ball hog and isn't the best at defense outside of 1 on 1 defense), that looks great for future guard recruits. Then the rest of the class is pretty good and a guy like Sahvir Wheeler could be Tremont Waters esque in that he's also a program changer.

    They had very good players last year, just reckless with the ball and relearning fluid basketball.

    the offense was rigid and methodical under Fox.

    Crean has a freer flowing offensive game and coaches them up instead of just staring at them like they are a kid that is acting up at church (Fox’s approach).
