    eric musselman

    eric musselman is no longer part of the cal coaching search, he's just not an optimal cal fit but his daughter should would've been a lot of fun on gamedays at hass that's for sure

    coach musselman has described cal as "a dream job" & still owns a house in danville, his 2 teenage boys from a previous marriage reside in the bay area, nor cal is his home

    nba sources have told me he's a fiery & tenacious workaholic, that he demands 100% of his staff at all times & that he's a tremendous gameday coach...he would be a fabulous strategist along the lines of coach mike montgomery, the bears will call time outs in tight games & score off in bounds plays, we will out scheme opponents

    coach musselman brought in 2018 superstar jordan brown for an unofficial visit to nevada this summer that by all accounts went very well...wife danyelle describes herself as 2nd mom to players & is very active with the on campus official visits

    as for the future of cal's monster class i'm gonna see if the athletic department can finalize the deal with coach musselman & who he retains/hires as staff...it's absolutely necessary for the future of the cal basketball program that he build his team around coach nicodemus christopher, he's the real deal for guys building nba bodies both physically & mentally...good luck to yanni in hopefully taking a step forward in his career with the nevada staff if dave rice is promoted internally as the head coach, huf will not be returning to berkeley...hiring current los angeles laker assistant coach & former cal basketball staff/player tireless worker theo robertson should be a priority along with the current staff which will be essential in retaining cal's remarkable both athletically & academically go all the way up class (2017)

    the cal athletic department will not hire a head coach that does not already have head coaching experience

    coach musselman could potentially bring championships to berkeley if he hires the right staff (coach nic), keeps together cal's go all the way up class (2017) & successfully keeps jordan brown home in his late summer/early fall collegiate decision...i'm looking forward to hopefully meeting him in person in the near future

    and yeah coach musselman knows a thing or two about mutts of mixed descent too & that's a good thing

    travis decuire



    travis, i would've never started the monster if not for you, gregg gottlieb & theo robertson...you will always be a special california golden bear, ok maybe a montana grizzly bear

    life is definitely not linear#

    ivan rabb

    ivan, congrats on your decision to enter the 2017 nba draft, it's 100% the right decision, nba scouts are aware of the impact of your debilitating mono (which some dumb azz cal fans never quite understood) & the poor gameday schematics of the prior staff which negatively impacted your season

    taylor's foto summarizes the bears abject failure to feed young ivee in the virginia game, he's open for a low post entry pass but the ball is never delivered to him

    check out this link (not ghostwritten by me believe it or not):
    http://rushthecourt.net/2016/12/26/i...source=twitter

    "the ultimate point i'm beleaguering is that california center (not accurate, he's actually a 4 that sometimes slides to the 5 in small ball) ivan rabb didn't touch the ball for the final 4 minutes in last week's 56-52 loss to virginia...rabb, the second highest vote getter in pre season all america voting, took only four shots on the evening and did not touch the ball in the final four minutes of a crucial non conference loss"

    this is the #1 challenge facing the cal basketball program, we will not be able to beat elite competition until this ongoing problem is fixed

    ivan, i feel your frustration, this **** frustrates me as much as it frustrates you but some of this is also on you, you gotta more vocally (try yelling for a change, the quiet **** clearly isn't working) demand the ******* basketball from your teammates with your catching arm pointing to where you want the rock delivered to you & then you gotta relentlessly attack the basket & impose your unstoppable oakland will upon the game...quit hesitating (probing) when you got the ball, it's just allowing the double team to arrive, attack immediately & fearlessly

    let's do this, so tired of this ****

    the time is ******* now#

    the jigsaw puzzle

    what wheels don't fully understand/appreciate is the complicating factor of this search in not only finding the right head coach (which is critical for retaining cal's 2017 go all the way up class & also the pursuit of 2018 superstar jordan brown) but also the right assistant coaches so finding out who dennis gates might work with as an associate head coach (the answer is joe pasternack) is part of this process along with the fact that arizona is still playing in the ncca tournament this thursday nite in san jose

    the football head coach was much simpler: identify & hire the right head football coach which pez & mike williams nailed & then give wilcox 100% autonomy in hiring his assistant coaches without any pressure to compromise (such as the significant support for returning ron gould to berkeley)

    this search is like a 1000+ piece jigsaw puzzle with lots of moving parts, they all need to fit together seamlessly

    Can you summarize what he said, or provide a link? The one tidbit I heard, I didn't really disagree with.

    --- EDIT --- Okay, I found what he said. Like what a lot of people say in instances like this, there might be a kernal of truth in there, but a lot of it might be his own bruised ego.

    If getting an assistant is what's driving the choice of HC this search would be even more off the rails than anyone has suggested.

    cal coaching staff

    bluesaxe, selecting the right head coach that can build a staff (that is capable of recruiting high gpa true student athletes, something that martin & webster struggled with during their first 2 years in berkeley, they got better with the 2017 class) as outlined below takes time particularly at the world's #1 ranked public (#3 overall) university in the world

    at academically mediocre schools you just identify the best possible coach, offer him a ****load of $, recruit the most talented top 100 2.5 gpa dumb azzs that you can sign & then start practicing in your state of the art dedicated basketball practice facility with minimal distractions from schoolwork & **** like that, there are no worries

    cal isn't that school

    Quote Originally Posted by Shocky1 View Post

    the bears cannot afford to bring in assistant coaches who don't get cal's unique academic challenges from day 1, there's no time for a learning curve...i fully expect the next head coach (interviews with the selection committee tuesday & thursday of this upcoming week) to bring in 1-2 of the following former california golden bears:

    dennis gates: the misinformed reports that he's being considered for the head coaching position are inaccurate, he's a priority as a top assistant coach that can recruit & sell cal academics having graduated from berkeley in 3 years during his playing days


    theo robertson: cal's leading 3 pointer of all time was cal's business operations manager under coach montgomery, an assistant for the golden state warriors under steve kerr & is currently implementing the warriors offense for luke walton's los angeles lakers...theo told me about jordan brown back when he was in middle school, guy is a recruiting junkie


    richard midgley: former bears hardnosed englishman who ventured to america for high school not knowing anyone, he's been a highly successful coach at modesto christian & is currently a nba scout for the atlanta hawks


    lou richie: richie knows literally almost ever high school coach in california, he's coached up the bishop o'dowd dragons to a california open division state championship with young ivee & was originally offered an assistant coaching job by martin when he got hired by cal (lou turned down the job & it went to yanni hufnagel)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wPsA3TsK1Uk

    full disclosure: robertson, midgley & richie have been my floor guests multiple times at haas & i consider them friends, they are all hard working high character guys who bleed blue & gold

    the world according to shocky (will happen)#
