Default Better off?

So he went to Florida. If you listened to the scuttlebutt it was because of the competition with Odomes. If so, we're better off without him.

We may never know all of reasons Koulechov chose Florida? He was a proven shooter from deep, so that would have given him at least one advantage over Odomes. But assuming they played pick up games during the visit, Rashard's athleticism and strong moves to the rim would not have been lost on Egor. Odomes was also a starter last year.

One thing is certain, grad transfers don't want to spend their final season coming off of the bench.

Rashard avg 10/4 as a starter in 27mpg shooting 11% from 3pt, being 1 dimensional offensively and an average defender on a team that was screaming for anyone to step up.

Yeah a guy that averages 18/9 48% from 3pt, being a multidimensional scorer and an average defender is scared of PT.

He chose to go to UF which has of talent returning on a elite 8 team and a top 15 recruiting class. he must be scared of competition

the kid chose UF. could be any number of well-documented reasons on here (in the other thread).

he got his degree from a very good school...spent some time in the great American southwest...being a foreign player....had a chance to play ball in Florida. see something new. why not?

i wish we would have got him....but hey. better he makes a lot of 3's for UF than watching him light it up *against us* at ISU. we'll see how he does....the caliber of competition will go up for sure.

Canyon Barry came off the bench for Florida this year. Who knows how they will use Koulechov.

I don't think we are better off without him...no matter how we would have used him. Whether he is better off is a different story (he obviously thinks he is for one reason or another).

This is just speculation but I imagine UF's large Jewish population was a big factor

If this is true, I don't know that it means we're better off without him but it does speak to the respect others have for the depth on our roster. The roster is good and pretty deep. The downside is that it means it'll be difficult to add players who want to play immediately. It's a nice problem to have. It's certainly better than lacking talent and being able to add 1 guy like Koulechov.

I'm perfectly happy going into the year with Young, McGusty, and Odomes as our starters on the perimeter -- I've said previously that might be the best backcourt in the Big XII. Unless the extra time allows James to develop into the player we thought he'd be, though, we really need another guy. Shepard and James might end up being all we need, but they definitely don't give me goosebumps.

I believe you're selling Odomes short.

Aren't you the same clown who said Trae was going to OSU and definitely not OU?

Why didn't you come back to eat some crow...

This season hast helped. as far as OSU goes..He was teammates with Lindy Waters, good friend. Likes Underwood and one of the asst coaches. His dad has a good friendship with a former OSU player. Also good friends with Jawun Evans who tells him good things.

Also gets advice from KD who hates OU.


Dad wants KU though. KU is most likely.

KU OSU and OU in that order

if I had to put % Id say 80 KU 15 OSU 5 OU

And wasn't there another one that said we had quit recruiting Trae? I guess that could technically be true now since he's signed. HA
