    Is next . . . what is Sam Elarky's Twitter?

    Since Monty can't get it done, I'm gonna have to.

    [I'm just kidding. But it's kinda sad.]

    I think that Monty is too honest to be a great recruiter. The kids with big egos who think they need one year of college before they start in the NBA don't want to hear the truth. They want someone to blow smoke up their ass.

    Maybe Monty should watch MCA's film, Gunning For That #1 Spot. RIP, MCA.

    You are on to part of the issue. To compete with the citadel of dysfunction in westwood, all Monte has to do is fire good coaches and hire AAU guys who will bring their stars for a year...and then Sandy has to hook up with, oh, say Adidas, and have it be the sponsor of a certain recruit's tennis pro sister, in order to have Adidas be able to advertise in an 'all in the family' kind of way. This is big, ugly business. I have to believe there are enough real basketball coaches and programs left in the conference that they will be gunning for the bruiegos in a very big way this year...to expose them for the collection of uncoached talent they will be.

    This is so much self serving BS.

    Is there a huge underhanded AAU system in Poland?

    Did Monty lie when he was at Furd to get the Collins twins and others?

    We aren't only losing out on premier talent (for whom this theory might apply), we are losing out on 2nd, 3rd and 4th tier recruits.

    If we are basketball fans, we should all watch this movie. It is great. Through a connection (the only time in my life where I had a connection) I actually went to the debut and after-party. MCA seemed like a really cool guy. He will be missed.

    The Collins twins fell into Monty's lap. They were all set to go to fucla but Harrick got caught paying them--excuse me, "recruiting them improperly." Just google 'jim harrick ucla dinner'. He got fired, they went to Stanford. It's a red herring when talking about Monty and his recruiting.

    We have the Monty that he's always been, the rest is revisionist history. Some people are just being duped by outsider(s) not to stand for "settling" for upper-half-of-the-Pac finishes while he (hopefully) builds something bigger & better.

    Yep. Monty not recruiting is Monty's fault. Period.

    Loved MCA. Part of my youth is gone with him. I watch this and smile:

    NO. You cannot build bigger & better with the kind of recruiting MM and staff are delivering to date.

    Then we should do it.

    I'm tired of losing in the 1st round of the NCAA Tournament or not making it at all. There is nothing wrong with shoe companies or recruiting players hard. That's the American way. I'd like to root for a winner sometime instead of giving it the old college try and getting embarrassed at least once a year on national television.
