What exactly is that?

Hired Dennis Gates, who spent years apprenticing under Ham at FSU and is a great developer of talent and up and coming coach (coach of the year at Cleveland State).

And now Gates just hired Charlton “CY” Young, who has been an assistant at FSU for almost a decade and coached with Gates for much of that time. CY has massive recruiting networks in the southeast, particularly in Georgia, and also is a ridiculous eye for under the radar talent. First (and only) coach at a high major school to offer future lotto pick Devin Vassell. CY isn’t much of an X&O guy but he’s so so good with team culture and relationships.

To be honest I want Missouri to be good in basketball. Our rivalry games are on a different level when the games are good.
Agreed, except from the Illini perspective. When both Illinois and Mizzou are relevant, Braggin’ Rights is one of the coolest rivalry setups in college basketball … when Mizzou is pathetic like this year, their side is like 30% full.

the problem with mizzou basketball last year is not the talent because there was good players it was the coaches style of play the defense was terrible the three point shooting was bad.any time you loose by twenty points to the kangaroos on your home court thats bad .

I know next-to-nothing about the coaches they brought in, but the cbb guys that I respect seem to be pretty intrigued .. so I'm intrigued.

Love the Shaw commit and Carter and Gomillion (sp?) look like they could be portal wins.. however, Zou needs perimeter shooting bigly. Losing Gordon hurt.

Not really a fair comparison. It’s not like KU football is packed with fans.

Win games and there won’t be a shortage of fans for MU bball and KU fball.

They are all FSU guys from under Ham. FSU has been pretty darn competitive under Ham.

I don't think they are finished bringing in talent.
