We have a half court offense and everything. JJ is gonna have us in the NCAA if we go 60% in the Acc with a Signature (Duke or UNC) win.
I endured both Hussey and Stokes. I thought Greenburg was about as good of coach as we could expect. When Weaver fired Greenburg I was pissed. Especially with an excellent recruiting class coming in that included Montezl Hazzel. So far JJ has exceeded all expectations. Part of his success can be attributed to having D Green as the team leader. Damn! Green is balling! Love how JJ is letting the guys play with no fear. Superior conditioning, sound fundamentals, good D, turn em loose. We are out manned and under sized but we are balling. We got some shooters. Most of these guys can shoot. If we beat WVU next week we will surely be ranked. The students and locals in the NRV are stoked. Go to the game and get loud. Its fun rooting for a team with no quit.
JJ can recruit, and he's coaching a very recruitable style
I wonder if Montezi Hazzel is having second thoughts? Imagine this team with JJ's coaching and attitude with Montezi. Now JJ has something to sell to recruits in the next recruiting cycle.
Not to mention if Doedoe would have stuck around, this team could be competing for an ACC Championship
I don't blame DoeDoe at all for leaving, Greenberg really didn't make good use of him. And yeah this team would be very good if we still had him. Oh well..
With both of them and Greenberg we would be 5-2 now at best, and averaging 63 points per game.
I dont think Montrezl is having second thoughts...he gets really good minutes for a freshman at Louisville....
While I don't think MH is having any second thoughts, I can't help but wonder how good this team would be with BOTH MH and DFS. Would solve our depth/front-court/rebounding issues. That said, none of that is on JJ and I could not be more pleased with him going forward, he must have had a really hard time coaching under SG if this he prefers this offensive style!
I love JJ and the team and how they're playing right now. Let's keep this in perspective though. When Green is on the bench, this team team really struggles on the offensive end. This will be a very different team next year without him. If we don't pull a PG in this class that can contribute big minutes right away, it will be a long year next year and this offense won't look nearly as good. Hopefully Rankin can progress a lot this year.
VT is number 4 in the country in offense.....
JJ can recruit. If he continues down the road he is on even if we don't have a sterling season he will nab some winners. He believes in the guys he is working with and his coaching ability along with the respect he shows them is enough to win over a lot of people imo.
