Considering where this program was before he got here, I'm perfectly fine with what he's doing.
He does have 2 of his best recruits coming in next year and the year after.
Please beat Indiana. I hate Tom Crean. -----------------------------------------------
Bo Ryan's Big Ten record 126-51
Tom Crean's Big Ten record 11-51
Where they were before Bo Ryan?
uhhh how about when they were a final four team in 2000
How many final four's has the great Bo Ryan led the Badgers to?
<Prior to Bennett arriving in the mid 90's we only had 1 NCAA tournament appearance since the mid 1940s. And If you hate the style Bo Ryan uses, you would have hated watching the Badgers under Dick Bennett as it was an even slower pace.
Bo Ryan will get there eventually, like I said, his recruiting is improving, and the Badgers have NEVER had this long of a stretch of Consistent success. I like where the program's at.
If you had to bet who would get to a Final Four first with current school, I'll take Crean.
Crean will be getting McDonald's All-Americans multiple. Great players get to Final Fours.
Bo's a very good coach but he needs more athleticism and offensive creators. In March, with all things equal, the team that can create wins. That's why Butler waxed them. That's why Cornell and Davidson waxed them, too. All could play defense but those teams were way more explosive beyond just shooting three's.
Taylor should be allowed way more freedom within the offense. Efficiency is nice but in the end, explosiveness is far more important.
Is Murray State really any good?
Now Marquette is up 76-71 with 12 minutes or so left. Good sh...it.
I'm pretty torn on Bo Ryan, I do like the consistent teams he has put out there, but it does get pretty old always losing earlier than they should or to lower seeded teams in the tournament.
Best win is against Dayton.
Great 3pt. shooting team, protect the ball, forces turnovers, good on the offensive glass. Little weak on defensive boards and points per possession.
