Calhoun recruited Oriakhi from the Tilton "lack of fundamental school" as referred to here. So ultimately if Alex did not have the skill set to develop why would Calhoun have wasted a ship on him? Was this a misjudgment on the part of JC? Is talent evaluating part of the recruiting process? Is developing a players skill set out of high school the sole responsibility of the player or does coaching also play a part in development? It seems reasonable to structure the blame around the high school coach several years after a player has departed to college. Right? Of course it does!! LOL It seems like AO has enjoyed his summer in Europe with his new Missouri team (CBS blog entries by Pressey and Alex). Change is healthy. No different than going to a better job with good benefits. I think several here expect him and this Missouri team to fail miserably. After all Alex has no ability and Missouri just chokes every year. Right? It will be interesting to see if all the prognosticators here are correct when March rolls around regarding Missouri and AO. That at least gives the season meaning from a more tangible perspective.
