so, we have had a lot of discussions about the recruiting and if its any better than DH's classes. some feel its no different in terms of talent level. some feel its better. the stars seem to me to be about the same. and no, i dont want to get into a star debate. what the point of this thread is.... player development. with DH, i cant say that i saw any great player development. what i saw was just guys gaining experience. that is where and how they got better. it was not from coaching, imo. in the one year embree had, did anyone see much player development? we saw tony clemons get much better and development over the season and dang near become a monster late in the season. i think a lot of his improvement had to do with coaching. who else would you say made great strides over this last season that would be due to coaching? i am not sure i can think of any. i ask this because if this class is similar to DH's classes but can be coached up, we have something. if CU does not have the coaching talent to coach up the kids, are we in for DH part 2? seems to me that we are pulling in some better talent than what DH was pulling in. i base that only on the type of teams the committed players were also considereing. i personally put more value in that than stars. that is just me though. however, if the players cant be developed.... none of it really matters. does it? what do you guys think?
