Well, we just lost one to MSU................

And somehow that was because of Mike!? Just seems to me that the kid/family made a decision based upon things other than basketball. I don't know that but I feel pretty sure it wasn't because Mike didn't make a good enough case.

End commitment to AR to go to Miss St?  Reason is for proximity to family member for health reasons?  Driving distance to FL State, FL, GA, AL, AUB, and GA Tech are all closer drives.  There are several other drives that are very similar in distance to his home as Miss St that provide quality basketball opportunities.  Staying close to father is not a sound reason when you drive multiple times farther distances and don't choose Florida State, Florida, Georgia Tech, Georgia, and Auburn.  All of these schools were a very reasonable distance.  A five star going to Miss State doesn't add up other than Dad being an alumni of that school.  Still, that is an odd commitment when he hadn't committed to them already.  I smell a rat.

Your problem is that you see inferiority when you look at the University of Arkansas.  You have bought the media message hook, line and sinker.  The opinions you offer make me question your reason for being a fan...

I believe that I see the University of Arkansas for what it is... a fine state university in an attractive area to live.  I'm extremely proud of our efforts to be competitive in all aspects.  It is not Harvard, Stanford, Princeton, Yale or Duke - nor is it intended to be.  But I also know that the University of Arkansas offers as good an university experience and opportunity as the University of Kentucky, the University of Florida, Mississippi State University, the University of Kansas and other state universities.

Arkansas should be recruiting against the latter schools, but we haven't been.  Mike's staff has us recruiting mostly against schools that offer a lesser college experience.  This is not a criticism of those schools.  They simply don't have the resources to offer more to their student athletes.  No shame in that.

Don't bother trying - you cannot convince me otherwise.  You may point to lottery picks, and I would explain that they would have been lottery picks elsewhere - including Arkansas.  I would point to players that went to certain schools expecting to come out as lottery picks, but didn't.

There is no way to prove which of us is right.  It's a waste of our collective time.  You believe that Arkansas is inferior - and I disagree.  Perhaps you haven't traveled much; or you are inclined to believe that what others have is better than your own simply because of who possesses it.  I see things differently - what others have is great.  Luckily, we can match it.

True, we are without the recent tradition of success that certain other schools have enjoyed.  I believe much of our tradition has been lost due to claims of racism and the abandonment of Arkansas recruits of the Razorback tradition.  Both of these burdens are terrifically difficult burdens to bear.  We have the passage of time to get past the former.  The latter... we are a unique tradition and pay coaches a lot of money to ensure its continuation.  In fact, Arkansas has less to "overcome" now than ever before.  Industry leaders are nearby - Wal-Mart, Tyson, Stephens, Dillards...

I believe that winning starts at home.  When they are going to Stanford and Duke, I'm likely to understand their "business decision" if they prove to be attending that university for reasons other than a "one and done" basketball experience.  For all others, I'll question their business acumen.

Of course, none of this applies to Reggie Perry because he is from Georgia.  But I do believe that Arkansas should not lose Reggie Perry to any schools other than Georgia Tech and Georgia.  In fact, Arkansas seems to have a competitive advantage over the other schools because Reggie is friends with our committed recruits.

WOW! You were able to discern that from one post stating that Arkansas is not as good of program as Kentucky?

Correct. But around here, it's not.


Unless your jocking it up so tight players can't breathe.

You're taking it up with the wrong person. I'm just a dude talking like you. Don't want to hear anyone tell me how I should feel or react to something so long as I'm being reasonable.

Do any of you actually have a dad?
« Reply #404 on: July 17, 2017, 01:40:32 pm »

Perry going to Miss St only makes sense because of his dad.

A 6 hour drive is manageable for home games. Especially in a town where the Perry family probably has friends to stay with overnight as well since his father is an alumni. So it is much easier on his father if he plays in Starkville.

Secondly, if your father weren't having health problems it would be tempting to play at the same school as he did anyway. Wear the same jersey #, etc. If your father was very ill the pull would be even stronger, if you loved him. Most of us want to please and honor our father's.

Third, Ben Howland isn't worth zilch for improving NBA stock. In the last two years he has taken 2, 5 star rated kids and turned them into transfers, not one and dones. Too many of you are being smarter by half on this one.

Sucks to lose such a talented kid but it looks like he really does care about his dad in this instance.

was his dad not in the picture when he made his original, dramatic, heart felt commitment?

manageable drives, same jersey numbers, and convenient places to stay overnight didnt all just become relevant 2 weeks ago.

Yeah, still shady.  Dude is acting like Perry's girlfriend just gave birth to his dad a few weeks ago.

"Well, when he committed to Arkansas initially, he didn't have a dad.  His girlfriend just had his dad, so everything changed.  He has to do what is best for his dad, which is clearly to move 7 hours away to a complete shizhole."

This has been going on longer than two weeks. I know for a fact the Perry family visited Miss St over a month ago.

It takes months for any illness to get diagnosed. In my mom's case it took years.

Yes, you are right about it having been going in for a while.

You are ocd if you have actually driven and timed it and naive if you simply buy what a mapping software says. I used to travel a lot and the mapping software tends to overestimate drive times.

So at Kentucky they run everything through 1-2 players or do 8-10 players share the ball?
That's exactly what I was going to say. Kentucky would seem to be the total opposite of the point that 'too many players play in this system'.
At KY, every recruit is the proverbial 5-star recruit. That makes Cal's recruiting even more impressive, and what also makes him underrated as a coach. He not only convinces those guys to sign with KY knowing full well there will be four other 5-star recruits signing in the kid's same class---but he also gets them to play well as a team. I've never noticed a whole lot of prima-donna behavior on those teams. They generally play hard and play together.
Do I think Cal is a great bench coach? Not really. But his recruiting and 'team first' coaching are off the charts. And that leads to a ton of wins.

I do not disagree, but it is going to keep Mike from getting the Monk's, Perry's etc.

I do disagree about he GS comparison. 1 those guys are getting paid, and the management can go out and get free agents.
Disagree.
Preaching team concepts and no egos didn't prohibit Nolan from getting Huery, Day, Mayberry, Darnell, Corliss, Wilson, G Alexander, D Hood, K Reid, did it? Every one of those players was either a McDonald's or Parade 1st or 2nd team All-American.

Because Nolan could recruit. Mike, not so much.

What I see is you said Mikes system isn't conducive to top high school players. When I pointed out that KY runs the same system....somehow that proves I have problem with reasoning ??? Yes KY has numerous lotto picks over the last few years. That was not the point you made. The only difference between MA's system and KY system is KY is doing it with better players. I will say this MA is more concerned about defense than KY otherwise about the same system. The BIG difference which people seem to ignore:

 Kentucky is the most successful NCAA Division I basketball program in history in terms of both all-time wins (2,237) and all-time winning percentage (.765). Kentucky leads all schools in total NCAA tournament appearances (56), NCAA tournament wins (124), NCAA Tournament games played (174), NCAA Sweet Sixteen appearances (42), NCAA Elite Eight appearances (37), and total postseason tournament appearances (64). Further, Kentucky has played in 17 NCAA Final Fours (tied for 2nd place all-time with UCLA), 12 NCAA Championship games, and has won 8 NCAA championships (second only to UCLA's 11).

Not saying Arkansas basketball does not have a record to be proud of but compare the two it's not even fair. Now if we were consistently losing top players to Auburn...I  could see the butt hurt. So you tell me which person has an easier job to sell Calipari or Mike? That should be enough eliminate a lot post on this thread!
But, Nolan was going head-to-head with Kentucky in his prime. Toe-to-toe with Pitino and all the KY tradition.
People remember that and therefore don't just throw in the towel and expect KY to come here and raid all our recruits.
The right coach can put a stop to much of that.
They realize Mike isn't that kind of caliber, so he can't stop it.
Actually the players themselves realize it first, and that's why they're leaving.

+1, He's a coach and a man of ultimate integrity and the Mike critics just can't stand that. ::)
So since Nolan recruited better are you implying he had no integrity?
Or are you saying good recruiting and integrity don't mix?
Not buying that.
Nolan is proof of that.
I don't think he cheated, and he recruited extremely well for a while.

So what if he goes where his dad went?
If this commitment sticks, I'm actually ok with it.
Why? Because this is one of the logical places you might have expected Perry to go---considering his dad's history with the school.
If the Hog commitment hadn't happened so long ago, would anyone have been surprised at Perry to MSU? Not me.
And it IS much closer to home than Fayetteville is.

Dude! Kentucky raids EVERYBODY! Heck I'm so glad the state now produces the type of player that Kentucky wants. Your recollection of history is...different I don't recall Nolan beating KY in recruiting now he did beat them on the floor some but I don't recall Nolan taking players from KY. By the way Mike is 4-7 against Kentucky and had a 3 game win streak against them. Nolan 7-12.

Nolan - NC, NC runner Up 3 Final 4's, an elite 8, couple more sweet 16's all while at Ar. Mike , 3 noshows a 8 seed and a 5 seed. You really want to compare the two.

Oh, and in the year when Mike's team beat KY twice, KY ended up NCAAt runner up and Mike's team ended up losing at Cal in the NIT.

Moving the goal post. The point was made that Nolan went head to head with KY. It appears Mike has too. Neither coach out recruited KY. The reason KY is expected to get the best players from Arkansas is because they have done it to nearly every state in the union. We're not living in a bubble. You say the right coach could stop it, there is no way to prove that as it hasn't happened before. Arkansas will NEVER pay a coach enough to do what you are asking.

By the way Mike is 4-7 against Kentucky and had a 3 game win streak against them. Nolan 7-12.
I'm not narrowly focused on Ark and KY going after the same guys. I'm speaking at a higher level than that. Recruiting as a whole.
I listed all the top recruits Nolan signed while he was here. All of those guys are the same caliber of players as the Allens, Monks, and Goodwins of today. That is, they were on the blue blood list of hot-shot recruits of the day. Corliss, Day, Mayberry, Hood, Reid etc etc. Nolan was yes, signing as many hot shots back in the day as the 'blue bloods' were. That was the whole point. And that in turn allowed the great success back then. It's quite simple: you get some of the top recruits, you win a lot. If you don't, you take a backseat to the KYs, Kansas, UNC's and Dukes.
Even though Nolan liked to say especially later that he had Burger King all-americans instead of McDonald's he was being disengenuous, because he signed and went after a lot of the McDonald's guys.
The fact is, Arkansas WAS a blue blood program for a while---all because of great recruiting.

Think higher.
Don't worry so much about being 4-7 against KY.
Advance farther than them in the NCAA Tournament. That's the goal here. Nolan did that sometimes, Mike not yet.
Sure I enjoyed beating them twice a few years ago, but as someone said by March that year they were torching us. Better talent. Those freshmen take a while to jell usually but by March they were clicking. Beat 'em early is usually the case. They're just freshmen no matter how talented they are. So sometimes you can beat 'em.

Pargo was one that both programs wanted.
I really prefer this to be a macro level discussion and not micro-level as just Ark vs Ky. I'm thinking Ark vs college basketball and what it takes to be highly successful.
Besides, in Pargo's day, Nolan wasn't recruiting as well as he once did, and Tubby wasn't a great recruiter either.

I don't know whether to be afraid of what Howland is building at MSU or be skeptical of what he is brewing.

Can't say I like this one getting away but then again no kid is ever a Hog until they sign on the Hogged-line so he technically never was "ours" to begin with.
I like to reserve judgement on a coach until the season is over and gauge them on results on the court rather than what could-have-been with recruits. I guess that is my old-school way of thinking. We just didn't have this much information at our fingertips 20+ years ago to see all the ones that got away unless they were in our back yard.

Jerry Reed drove from Atlanta to Texarkana, TX and back in 18hrs in a truck hauling 400 cases of beer in the late 70's.
Don't think so..the Texas side was dry back then.

You can't really compare Nolan's recruiting to today's college basketball.
What's happening with the one and done kids wasn't an issue back then.
The reasons and motivations for recruits were different - kids chose a school knowing they would be there a few years.
For the one and done kid's - it's temporary, a 9 month stopping point to the NBA. For the most part, they don't care about the school or the program.

did he not have a dad until 2 weeks ago?
was his dad not in the picture when he made his original, dramatic, heart felt commitment?

manageable drives, same jersey numbers, and convenient places to stay overnight didnt all just become relevant 2 weeks ago.

Is that not the truth?  What a silly thread.

I'm not narrowly focused on Ark and KY going after the same guys. I'm speaking at a higher level than that. Recruiting as a whole.
I listed all the top recruits Nolan signed while he was here. All of those guys are the same caliber of players as the Allens, Monks, and Goodwins of today. That is, they were on the blue blood list of hot-shot recruits of the day. Corliss, Day, Mayberry, Hood, Reid etc etc. Nolan was yes, signing as many hot shots back in the day as the 'blue bloods' were. That was the whole point. And that in turn allowed the great success back then. It's quite simple: you get some of the top recruits, you win a lot. If you don't, you take a backseat to the KYs, Kansas, UNC's and Dukes.
Even though Nolan liked to say especially later that he had Burger King all-americans instead of McDonald's he was being disengenuous, because he signed and went after a lot of the McDonald's guys.
The fact is, Arkansas WAS a blue blood program for a while---all because of great recruiting.

I leave you to re-writng history. The year we won National Championship how many players off that team went on to a successful NBA career?

One. Corliss.  Beck and McDaniel spent a season or two in the league. Darnell Robinson was drafted but never played in the NBA.

Sound to me that Mike style is similar to the style of the NBA champions, Golden State Warriors. Mike Anderson is really ahead of the curve in the college game because he is asking kids to sacrifice some of yourself for the greater good of the team. This me Mentality does not fit the team concept. I think some people got in the ear of Reggie Perry and convinced him to decommit.  I don't knock the kid at all because it's his opportunity and he is in a position to do some great things for his family.

I really don't want Mike to sell these kids a lie. The brand is Arkansas Razorbacks basketball!! Not Reggie Perry, Malik Monk, Bobby Portis etc...

 Nice.  And RP should know that lots of minutes and possession can and will be earned, but if RP wanted time and possession that he didn't deserve then that's fine.  I care more about Arkansas winning than recruiting.  They should be synonymous but not if players put themselves above the team.

This thread is comical.

I had a great dad until he passed away. He'd tell me to man up and honor my commitment.

Re: What difference does Reggie Perry de-committing from the Hogs make?

I saw Perry at the Real Deal. In my estimation he's a similar player but way more skilled and athletic than Bobby Portis. So yeah, losing him is a huge deal and goes from taking the program a big step forward to continue to being stuck in mediocrity. That big of an impact.

You are ocd if you have actually driven and timed it and naive if you simply buy what a mapping software says. I used to travel a lot and the mapping software tends to overestimate drive times.

They expect people to drive the speed limit............................
