I keep hearing CoachB is a great x and O's coach where does this come from? We are young but can't keep players here? It seems to me talent level is here and we seem to get out coached more times than not. If we are a great defensive squad them how do we continue to blow big leads?
I coach youth basketball and what you hear is true. CB is a solid X's and O's guy. The M2M defense is some of the fundamentally best you'll see. Offensively, there has been no one develop into a true outside shooter. Down the stretch FSU insisted on taking the inside and force it to the outside. We had good looks but no points (3-16 on ptr). The lack of outside shooting - now that part, I don't know if that is coaching or lack of skill. As far as players leaving CB, I think that is due to style. CB is a heavy dose of pass and screen with motion from underneath. Looks very mid-west style and there are southern guys who might not like it. That's my two cents.
We play good D and it seems like we get good looks on O, we just don't have guys that can consistently knock down shots. All BB can do is design plays that get our guys open and put them in effective defensive sets. I think BB is a good coach, but you can't win if you can't knock down shots.
