That isn't how I remember it. Within a week of the decision, people were predicting OU

Can't it be both guys?

That he wanted to be showcased AND he knew the staff better?
It isn't an either or. Both can be the right answer

I could have sworn that up until like a day before the decision Coachtalk was saying that the OU coaches "felt good", as well as the other teams' coaches. Then like minutes or an hour later he either edited or posted again that he thought it was OSU. But up until that point he made it sound like OU had a very good chance, that they were selling him on this, and that...Very confusing...

For the record, I appreciate some of the info Coachtalk brings to the board, hope he keeps it up! Like another poster said, we should probably just move on from the Bryce deal at this point...

Coach was saying osu for at least a few days before the announcement. Bob pryzbylo at soonerscoop said it was osu about a week before his announcement too. Every legit source has cited the relationship with osuís staff as the deciding factor.

Fair enough. Like I said, I appreciate the info he and others bring to the board. I wish some of those other guys would come out of hiding that used to bring it. What were their names? Postman was one. Talk about some pretty legit info..

I went back and looked at that thread on scoop.
It wasn't until the 11th that Bob started to say it was osu. he committed on the 13.

It was still very up in the air 5-7 days from the commitment.

I'm not sure why it matters...it just seems that now after the fact, people are making it out like people in the know knew for a long time it was osu. That wasn't the case

Coach told me in late April he thought BT would pick OSU. Here’s a PM exchange with him on April 29th:

My PM:

Here’s why. If I was Boynton, I would use what he did with Cunningham as my selling pitch, and then I would repeat it until Bryce believes he originated the idea. BT’s situation is basically the same except he’s going into his sophomore season.

The so-called experts on the Insider board seem to think OU is in a “good place.” I just don’t have a lot of confidence in their reporting on basketball.

What say you?

His response:

Gut says Osu as well but I’ve been talking to bryces dad until 1 week ago. He’s gone silent. I’m sure a lot of folks on him. I’m not the type to bug.

Ou makes the most sense but I’m a homer.

It’s all good. I don’t need WT to like me to bring info. I share when I can. Don’t when I can’t. Not 100% all the time. Especially when he brought his tu info 12 days after the commit.

Believe me, I couldnít care less that BT chose OSU! I predicted thatís what he would do and I was right.

I weighed in on this discussion for one reasonóto defend CoachTalk. He may not be right 100% of the time, no one I know can make that claim. But anyone who at least tries to bring good information to this board is going to get my support.

With that, Iím finished with this discussion! If I never hear or see BTís name again, it will be too soon to suit me.

[quote=BoulderSooner;680216]this is 100% fact ..


coach knows much more then he can share publicly ..

and has great sources ..

he is 100% spot on about Brady ... and that is from my very very good sources when it comes to his family ..[/QUOTE

I am just really puzzled that uncertainty caused Manek to leave OU and leave for a new team, yeah I get a basketball Blue blood, that was horrific last year and has a new, first time head coach. That seems like an awful lot of uncertainty plus he is not even guaranteed to routinely start or be as featured so this country boy just dont get him bolting irrespective of family explanation.

I never said it wasn't both. Matter of fact, they are kind of tied together.

Moser needed to be able to convince Bryce (and his father) as to how Bryce would fit in a Moser offense. That is easier to do, and get trust, the longer the relationship has existed. But it wasn't the simple fact that Bryce new other coaches longer, it was more that Bryce didn't know Moser enough to trust him on how he'd be used.

Give me a break. My info was as to the "why" something something happened. It wasn't predictive in nature, thus the timing really doesn't matter. I can't help when I ran into somebody who would be in the know. It happened to be about a week after the announcement.

Like I said in the post above this one, your info isn't really "wrong", I just don't agree with how you took the facts, concluded on them, and presented it. For the last time, yes, it had to do with how well Bryce and his father knew Moser, but only in the context of building trust on use. You focused on the relationship, when the real reason is Bryce and his father just couldn't get comfortable with usage, DUE IN PART TO THE SHORT TIME KNOWING MOSER.

SO anyway, Alondes is going to Wake Forest. Looking at what they return he should start there and probably have a good season.
