  • The Wes Miller thread

    Seems like Wes needs his own thread going into the season.

    I'll start it with an article from Justin Wiliams on his first 90 days ($)

    David Cobb of CBS recently graded the big coaching hires

    Cincinnati - Wes Miller - A

    Cincinnati is lucky to have landed an upgrade in Miller after its cringeworthy parting with John Brannen after just two seasons. Miller was regarded as a serious candidate for the North Carolina opening, and deservedly so after turning the UNC Greensboro program around and leading it to five consecutive 20-win seasons. The two-time Southern Conference coach of the year is a great candidate to carry on the legacy of Bob Huggins and Mick Cronin, both of whom enjoyed extended runs of success with the Bearcats before jumping to even bigger gigs.

      Not quite sure I would qualify KSU and WVU as a bigger gig than UC at the time Huggs left the program.

        Was thinking the exact same thing. Even at the present I wouldn't consider either of them bigger gigs than UC.

          Good call. I didn't even catch that. I was just fixated on the positive publicity with the "A" grade.

                I see a huge upswing in this team. I know it is early but I predict some big wins.

                  All aspects of Bearcat land are looking pretty darn good these days!

                    Beginning w/ CWM and continueing with all the pics supplied by GoBearcats31, and with the potential of these new recruits, who could possibly NOT be excited about bearcats bball. I too expect some big wins this year

                      • On Wes Miller: "Competed against Wes a zillion times. He's a whale of a coach, a program-builder. I think that job is built to win and I think he'll do really great."

                        Not sure where/when he said this, but via Keith Jenkins:

                        UC's Mason Madsen on Wes Miller:

                        "No one's said this to his face, but we've all said it in the locker room, we feel like we're playing for the best coach in the country. That might sound like an absurd statement, but you could look back in 10 years and be like, they were right."

                          Well in just three days we will see what kind of team we will have for 21-22. Its been quite a l on time when I've been this psyched for a bball season to start.

                            Here's an excellent piece by Justin Williams ($) on Wes Miller's development as a coach, his tenacity and ability to teach:

                              The Athletic's list of 40 rising stars under 40 in college basketball - coaches, broadcasters, players, executives, administrators, etc.

                              Wes Miller makes an appearance and funny enough because it was before last night and w/o revealing too much $ info it says "it's only a matter of time before he wins big in the Queen City"
