I think Moser has done a good job, considering he is clearly taking the long approach and not the quick fix approach. I think you have to give a coach at least four years to build something and to be fairly evaluated.

Seeing Oweh and Los gives me hope that Benny and Luke are also going to be good players when we finally get to see them. The Cooper kid really looks like the real deal. I don't know anything about Cole, but Moser seems to be doing a good job of talent evaluation at least with regard to high school kids.

I would prefer we move on from CJ, Jacob and jB, but don't like the idea of running kids off just to win games. If they buy in and work hard, the program should bear responsibility for doing the best they can with them and not just look to its own interest, even if it costs us some games. Of course, I just don't know how the kids feel about things and what type of kids they are.

In short, unlike some, I still am of the opinion we are going in the right direction even if it is at a slower pace than we wanted.
Put me NOT in this camp.. we play to win.

We can avoid adding some questionable characters (i.e., not sell our souls), but this is a results business. We need results ASAP

No, a .500 Big 12 team isn't a 4 seed at worst this year. Neither TCU nor ISU are currently projected as 4 seeds by ESPN. So again, no, not "at worst".

And we're talking about next year. You know, when the conference brings in 4 teams, one of which is really good and the other three of which are pretty bad. So the conference is going to get diluted by a small bit.

I said 8-12 seed. I can easily see TCU/ISU types, or OSU if they were to win on Saturday and be one game won from being .500, as being seeded 5/6 on the low end and 7/8 on the high end. Again, next year the conference won't be as strong with the addition of Cincy/BYU/UCF, so in theory, a similar record won't get the same seding. Maybe my 8-12 is off a bit, but it's probably 7-10 instead. But sure, get mad about it.

Who is mad here?

I was wrong about the 4 seed projection, as tcu is listed as a 5 on bracket matrix at 9-8 record (and they will be finishing .500). You make a valid point that the big12 will be worse next year with the 4 new teams, also. Perhaps a .500 record will be closer to 7-10 range next year.

The above being said, I would not be upset by everyone coming back, I just don't see my bottom three getting much playing time next year.

Love to get Godwin back as a walkon, but I am in the camp that he would help next year even as a scholarship player.

Been watching NAIA's videos of Cooper. After last night, I can't wait to see he and Oweh on the court together. They are both crazy athletes. Couldn't believe Oweh last night, he had a couple drives that should have been on Sportscenter. Unreal. Love, love, love Los and Oweh. Man I hope they come back. I think they could be really special.

As far as additions, we need an athletic big addition. And a pure shooter on the wing would be nice as well.
Who is YaYa? The Missouri kid? I think he may retire from basketball due to health reasons.

If youíre smart you try t sweeten the pot to get him and Hill back. You need their experience in this league if you want to make the tourney.

Not sure the competition was great. Iím in kc, do not familiar with Jeff city class size. With thatÖ any kid that is 6í11 and even halfway athletic should have those statsÖeven in kc.

I havenít heard that but i hope we arenít relying on him next year. Northweather might be solid eventually but obviously wasnít ready this season at all. We have some real work to do in the portal.

Can we all agree on these things?

1) OU is the worst team in the league - whether it is by a long ways or it is close - their record indicates they are the worse.

2) PM has recruited two nice freshman and has another couple coming in who could also be good. His HS recruiting has been good, maybe even very good.

3) His work in the transfer portal has been largely successful off the court - landing highly-sought after players, but they have largely underachieved and been inconsistent in the Big 12.

I am sure there are more things we might all agree on, but, for me, I just don't see a way forward for PM. Maybe Cooper and Collins are really good players and maybe Hill and GS stay and maybe Oweh and Uzan stay and improve their jump shots - Oweh especially, but that's a lot of maybes in a crazy good conference, which adds Houston next year.

Even if all the above maybes work out - hard to believe this would be the case, but let's pretend they did. I still think OU is no better than a middle of the road team in the Big 12. Is middle of the road in the Big 12 what any of us thought would be the case in year 3 of PM's tenure?

I want to believe PM can do it, but it feels like there are too many maybes to get OU into the tournament next year.

I hope he proves me wrong!

I think thatís pretty accurate. Iím not entirely sure I agree that he has landed many highly recruited players in the portal. Grant was, but Tanner didnít have a ton of big time offers and Jacob surely didnít. Bam Ö not sure who else offered. He has obvious talent but I donít think we beat out a lot of high majors for him. But Iím nitpicking because I think youíre right on the big picture stuff. There are so many ďifsĒ and ďmaybesĒ that all need to work out for us in order to make real headway. If any of those things donít work, especially if the two freshmen and/or Hill leave, we will probably be even worse next season.

Agreed. You have to consider them the worst team right now, even if not by a long ways.

Definitely. If he can continue his HS recruiting, retain them, and develop them (at even mediocre rate), there's no question he'll be successful here. That's obviously three important IFs that are all far from certain.

This is the one I'm not sure I would agree with. We've missed out on a lot of guys that would have really helped. It's understandable to miss on the 5-star equivalents to schools like KU and UT, but we've missed on more of the 4-star types to schools like TTU than I'd like. I think most of our transfers have been the equivalent of 3-stars. Sherfield is the only guy I would consider a 4-star or higher, and he's been a clear hit on the court.

I would absolutely be happy about middle of the road in conference next year. That would indicate clear progression and likely mean his HS recruiting is paying off, he's developing guys, or that he's stepped it up in the portal. The problem is that if Sherfield leaves, there's a TON of work to do to get this team to middle of conference, and I can't say that's something I'd bet on presently.

I agree. But I felt, OU would be better than middle-of-the-road even in the Big 12 in year 3 of PM. Maybe that was too much to expect, but I thought the PM hire was a homerun. And, now, I am not sure it wasn't a backwards K.

This (along with the late game management) is my biggest concern with Moser. Iím not sure how much of that is on him or the broader OU MBBall infrastructure in play (bad NIL set-up). Especially as CBB becomes even more NIL driven. I lean toward the outside factors as opposed to Moser-specific evaluations blowing up hence why I am personally more sanguine about him as a coach.

I'm not sure how it will all play out but Moser is going to have to hit the portal hard in the offseason. Not sure he can be successful. We may look at next year's roster and wish for this year's one.

I donít know anything other than what was posted on here over the weakened, but the fact that Jalen was asked about his plans today and declined to say he was coming back or even indicate he was strongly considering it is definitely not encouraging. I wonít hold it against him if he decides to leave. He certainly didnít think he would come to Norman and miss the tourney his Junior and senior years, and he canít feel confident in that turning around next season.

With those 5 guys leaving, thereís opportunity to bring in more talent. The flip side is, it could also be a disaster. I would hate to lose Hill but I also understand why he would leave if given a better opportunity.

Moser is on the hot seat. If he doesnít upgrade the talent in the portal, next year will be his last.
