This was kind of the thinking, I guess. The other hope is that if the Zags do statistically cannibalize each other, maybe he could swoop in and steal CPOY. I guarantee it won’t happen, but still.I don't think Barcello is a bad pick at all, to be honest. He was consistently in the top 10 in the country in Win Shares. Actually ended the year with more WS than his conference point guard counterpart, Jalen Suggs.
Barcello was also a HM All-American last year. And if you take the 3-point percentages from the past two seasons, he led the country. His ceiling may not be as high other 3rd rounders, but you won't find many in that round with his floor either.

Eff Bryce and his bro. Yes I’m salty. Add him to our team this year and we are probably a top 12 team.
Roman Penn, Drake.
Malik Williams, Louisville
Nick Muszynski, Belmont
So you’re saying there’s a chance?
There’s one dude there I’ve been considering for a few rounds.
Darius Days is Preseason First Team SEC.
I don't know why SEC does 10 and 8. Curious to hear the explanation. What's the benefit?10 players on the SEC Preseason First Team, though. For scoring in this league, it will only be 5 players on the 1st Team. Would be nice if the SEC broke it down with three teams of five. But yes, Darius Days is a nice prospect.
WeAreDePaul is an LSU fan. So, you know he's going to be the very next pick.
Muszynski is nice. Fun player to watch. He has excellent footwork. If Belmont rolls through the conference, as many expect, he could be HM All-American.
Jimbo should take Garrison Brooks with the very last pick.
-Xavier Johnson decommits from Nebraska
-XJ subsequently signs with Pitt
-Capel encourages Trey McGowens to reclassify and sign with Pitt
-Tension between XJ and Trey escalates into locker room fight; punches are thrown
-Trey transfers to Nebraska
-Bryce decommits from FSU and follows Trey to Nebraska
Weird turn of events, seeing how the frenemies both had ties with Pitt and Nebraska. But, Xavier Johnson deserves some blame for sort-of running Trey out of town... and go ahead and blame Capel for not have better control over his locker ro om (think Au'Diese Toney had issues with one of those guys too)... and maybe assign some blame to Tim Miles for not retaining XJ.
But yes, having top guys decommit sucks. Virtually impossible to compensate for the loss of a top-caliber player.
Didn’t realize it all goes back to Xavier Johnson. Eff him too then lol.
Bryce was our first commit of that cycle. He was ALL Noles. Had a relationship going back years with our coaches. He and his parents even helped FSU recruit John Butler (also from South Carolina) and Bryce also had a hand in recruiting Matthew Cleveland.
Then Trey goes to Nebraska and bam.
I just hope it doesn’t turn into a multi-million dollar mistake for the kid. Bryce is a perfect fit for FSU’s system and would have very likely been a lotto pick if he came here.
Stop sending me mixed signals
Time to draft your own Redeem Team. Just don't take Garrison Brooks in the 2nd Round
That's a really tough blow. Didn't know he was actively recruiting Butler.
It'll be interesting to see how things turn out at Nebraska. I'd be inclined to think FSU would be much better for his development. Obviously it's hard to ignore the tugs of a family member. Nebraska has been a lackluster program for a while. It's freakishly impressive how they can field a mediocre team and consistently sell out their home venue.
Dont worry we dont know what to make of louisville either. If all the pieces come together i think we can be dangerous, if not well, we will be watching the tourney from home again.I don't know what to make of Louisville. Feel like they have 7 different guys that could be the most valuable player in for the team. I think people are sleeping on UL a little bit. They're going to be tough.

Haha, was just giving you shit, man. All goodThose are separate talking points.
Before the draft started, I mentioned that you probably shouldn't take Garrison Brooks in the 2nd Round, like you did last year. At this stage in the draft, however, I don't think Brooks would be a bad pickup at all. That's all.
