The worst part is Jeff paid 500k for the honor
That assumes that Bzzzzz would have taken us as far as Tad has, which I think is a stretch.
i doubt Jeff would have turned the team over to AB, allowed Levi to find his niche from the arc and/or putting the ball on the floor, and we'd not have finished in the top 15 in scoring O with almost 80 a game. i suppose Roberson was too good to keep off the floor, but you wonder how Bz would have used him. which is an indirect way to point to our improved rebounding this year.
we won a lot of games with tempo and the break....would not have seen that with JB.
Did Jeff run the same Princeton Offense system at Wake that he ran at Colorado?
Correction mick. Bz would have never found Roberson.
Bz was recruiting Roberson before he left.
My understanding was the dre was Boyle's guy, all the way. Where'd you get info? (curious, not bashing)
As I remember it, Abatamarco found Roberson while Bzdelik was still here, and when Boyle said we needed a rebounder, Tom brought Roberson to him. Can't find a source, so if I could be wrong. I think they were talking about this during one the Big XII games on TV.
My recollection is that the assistant from aTm was the primary recruiter on Dre and had seen him more than hold his own in AAU versus some of the top B12 South prospects. Abatemarco was focused on the east coast recruits we were after. fwiw, the AllBuffs profile on Dre wasn't created until April 27th of las year. Bz was hired at WF just before mid-April.
It was Abatemarco who found/recruited Roberson. I dont know if it happened when Boyle or Bzdelik was the coach but either way Bzdelik hired the guy so he should get the credit.
Edit: I just rememberd reading an article in the denverpost in the past couple of days that said that CU began recruting Roberson when Bz was still the coach.
Impeccable logic. Nice to know that Bill McCartney recruited K.T. Tu'umalo this year. You know, since he hired Brian Cabral.
this person is sometimes dumb.
Was it this article? http://www.denverpost.com/cu/ci_16880034
The one that says Boyle met with Roberson at UNC ahead of Roberson stopping by CU?
Nope this was from a couple days ago. Hold on ill try and find it...
you aren't talking about the paige opinion article are you? Cause I really question someone using paige as a source for "facts".
Ya, it was the Paige article. I dont know why you dont trust Woody. He has tons of connections and sources and has been in the buisness forever. Plus integrity is the first rule of journalism. Either way it was Abatemarco who "found" Roberson and since he was hired befoe Boyle it would seem likely that Roberson was originally a Bz recruit.
"Bzdelik was responsible for seniors Cory Higgins and Levi Knutson and freshman Andre Roberson (who was being courted by CU before Boyle joined the Buffs)"
Uuuuuuuh. Hmmm. Have you read much news lately?
Give it a frigging rest!
woody is like a garden hose. lots of stuff comes out, but do you really want to drink it unfiltered?
Sorry, I didint realize that the pursuit of acurate information was frowned upon here.
Roberson's AAU trip to Boulder was on April 18th. Bzdelik to Wake Forest was reported on April 13th (presser the next day). Woody is right that Roberson "was being courted to CU before Boyle joined the Buffs", but it was after Bzdelik had left. It was 2 days before Boyle was hired (April 20th) and, as I referenced in the other article, Roberson had met with Boyle first. There is no indication that Bzdelik ever talked to Roberson. All we have is Abatemarco telling Roberson that he didn't know who the CU coach would be since our HC during the initial visit was McClain on an interim basis. Roberson then made his official visit to CU on April 27th (after Boyle was the HC) and signed with Boyle on May 3rd.
You really have to be ignorant (i.e. Woody) or willfully trying to belittle Boyle if you stick with the opinion that Roberson was a Bzdelik recruit.
Who owns the diamond, the man who finds the rock that encases it, or the man who goes and mines the rock?
Shut up, dude.
codene says no.
The chick who gives good head
Somehow it also works out that she continues to own that rock even after she stops with the head.
