High end talent but that box is about to get checked as Pitt is about to land a top 40 player in the 22 class. Big week for Pitt basketball
After reading about his college commitments I’m less worried. With cuse apparently didn’t feel close enough to the staff.Dior Johnson is an interesting case. Playing for 10 different high school seems like a major red flag. Capel is without a doubt on the hot seat. So, can't blame him. Johnson is uber talented. Capel is essentially handing him the keys to the corvette. Gotta take the talent, especially if you're fighting for your job. Just hope the kid can stay in there mentally.
I would say that it was 90-10with Dixon being run outta town. The 10 was that Jamie was never really crazy about the move to the ACC. He had to change his entire recruiting territory.PA set the record straight for me with Dixon. Was he run outta town or was that a mutual parting? If you have time you can go beyond cliff notes I'd really like to know what the hell happened because you guys went from a hell of a program to this and it's sad, as an outsider looking in. I've visited y'alls boards in the past and you have a large pretty friendly community.
TBH, I think its the second---took some time----and possibly a combo of both. I don't think UNC's run was a fluke----ya'll were playing well going into the thinng.Replacing Manek and the team playing like they did in the tournament and not like they often did in the regular season. Was the tournament a fluke or did it just take time for Hubert to get them doing what he wanted? IDK. If it's the second one then they really aren't missing a whole lot.
I don't care if Self ran 5 cheerleaders and and two goats out there----Dude seemingly always gets the best out of what he has----Figures it out, and adjusts to his personnel..-Young, new pieces ..
With that, questions about both offense and defense
-No proven big man..

Oregon was a little different as they are kinda loaded at guard.
Come to Pitt get your shots brother and head to the NBA after a year. Either way you are right Capel is def on a very hot seat. His job is directly tied to DJ. This is kinda like being at the Casino with only $100 left. Might as well throw it all on red and hope you can stay in the game one more round.
Ditto except just guard.Evidently we are missing wealthy alumni who are willing to pay for a point guard.
Naaah....We don't need three or four, etc, etc...But being we already have ONE who shot 39%, I guess another shooter or two, would be three....Just need to shot MORE, and hit around 35+%...Do that, and IU becomes a problem. Got some guys capable, i.e. Bates, Kopp and Gunn. Eventually, the shooting curse has to be lifted-----right?or three...or four.....or....
