    AAU connections do not win games and championships on a consistent basis. Yes, the city schools may be a bit different, but you have to buld from the ground up for long term success

    You are right. That is precisely why these a d and principals need to hire someone who knows what they are doing for the long term. The only way to compete with that is to build a program where the team is better than the individual talent. It takes a lot of work but it can be don

    I am not doubting what Moeller does. I am just stating what it takes to have long term success at a public school.. the private schools play by a different set of rules.

    you are correct. I was referring more to the public school scenario. I was also making a point that very few public schools in southern Ohio have any really sustained long term success. That is all. Also, the ones who have had long term success have a coach who has been there a while and...

    I wish both Coach Dixon and Coach McCollough the best. However, ties to AAU has absolutely zero/nothing todo with building a successful high school program. Great coaches build it from the ground up to develop long term success. Not just one two years of being good once in a while.it is not...

    My point was it is not just him. He would be a great hire. There are also a couple other great veteran coaches that were available and applied, but these local a d and principals don’t seem really serious about getting a championship pedigree coach. Only people the “know” or an alumni or who...

    Catscats and bobcat, interesting that you brought up Coach Pullen. What he did at Dunbar was quite impressive. His age should not matter,nor should any other coaches age. There have been a few other older, experienced, successful coaches who have applied for the coaching openings in southern...

    State Tournament leaving Columbus?

    It was just a thought. Toledo seats 9000 for basketball and the long drive would only happen once every 4 years

    Bored Coach Thread - Offense

    As I said, just a thought. If a coach knows how to teach team offense properly, the fastest player dribbling cannot and never will be faster than a pass. Also you have to teach post moves to make it effective. As I said ,everybody has different philosophies

    State Tournament leaving Columbus?

    How about regionalization the final four and rotating it. Northwest/ Toledo-Bowling Green one year then Northeast/Cleveland Akron the next year. Then Southwest/ Dayton Cincy. And Southeast/ Athens. .just a thought. All these places Have big enough arenas to host the final four

    Bored Coach Thread - Offense

    I would agree with you to a point. The quickest way to get in the paint or to the basket is a great pass to the post and teaching post players how to make a move.. Ball movement not dribble drive. Ball movement and player movement and knowing how to screen away from the ball. But everyone has...

    Cincinnati Princeton 2022 SG Bowen Hardman Commits to Ohio State

    Care free. Yes , a lot of college coaches go to aau events, mostly to see how kids play against others at their same level of play. However. aau is horrible for skill development. Most aau ball is one on one shake and bake and get my stats. AAU might be faster paced than the way some high school...

    Gopher, there is some truth to what you are saying and what has been discussed here. First, the "schools" you mentioned are not real high school teams. There is a reason they cannot be a part of their states athletic association and are not eligible to play for a state title. These are boarding...
