Why the Todd hate? Pretty sure Shaka would have replaced him if he felt like you do.

Todd's awesome - He's not the miracle worker some portray him as. I always chuckle when I read "Give him a year with Todd Smith and he'll be a new man." There's a reason guys under Wojo didn't improve toughness/strength and lots of guys with Buzz/Crean did. It didn't have anything to do with Todd Smith.

Are you Fluffy's brother or son?  Relax.

He's actually a lot closer with Fluffy than his brother or son is.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

Yep. Coaches set the physical training priorities. Todd just follows the marching orders.

Wouldn't it be great if our existing players had an actual strength and conditioning program. That might help alleviate some of our rebounding woes. Unfortunately Todd's track record suggests that this will not be happening.
Todd did an incredible job with Justin. Look at his body change between freshman and sophomore . He put lots of muscle on Oso who was skin and bones. Those are two example , there are so many more . Todd does a great job.There is a reason he has kept his job under three separate Head Coaches.

Positioning has a lot to do with rebounding. What I do not see on this team is a shot blocker.

OK, Dodds.

He desperately wants to be a moderator and is auditioning. Hoping to get that shiny deputy’s badge from Rocky.

If you're expecting an NAIA player to come to the Big East and put up anywhere near 10 and 6 you should really recalibrate expectations.

Duncan Robinson transferred from D3 (which is a lower level of competition than NAIA) to the Big 10 and put up 11.5 and 3.5 in his first season. Not quite 10 and 6 but he was a different style of player than Wrightsil.

Personally, I'm not expecting 10 and 6 from Wrightsil, but I do think he is a Big East level starter. I think we will really like what he brings on defense.

I mean you could very well be right Hound, but my instincts say that it's not an enormous stretch.  There are a number of programs that coveted this kid and he was the NAIA POY.  I just don't think Shaka would want him if he didn't feel he could be a high impact player and lessen the blow of potentially losing JLew.

I have no idea how good/bad Todd is.  I'm guessing, given the coaches that he's served under, that if he wasn't top-notch he would be gone.  What in Todd's track record suggests he can't do his job?

I like his experience as a productive, winning player w/4 yrs under his belt. I like his age. I mentioned to MarquetteMike he’ll go 10/5. I don’t think SS would waste roster space on a 4/1 guy, or thereabouts.
make Marquette basketball great again

Y’all better get used to rebounding deficiencies with Shaka as coach
Tis a shame, 'tis a rotton shame, for if ye can enjoy the walkin’ ye can probably enjoy the other times in yer life when ve're in between. And that's most o' the time; wouldn't ye say?

As I recall, TC wanted to take him along down to IU,IU, but Todd wanted to stay at MU ! ! !  8-)

All his teams were mediocre to bad at rebounding

Really?  I didn't realize that.  When was the last time MU had a dominant rebounder?

Henry averaged 9.9.

Fair point Tower.  But I can't remember if anyone else on that team could clean the glass.  I'd like to snag a Bacot type guy on the roster.

Luke was a good rebounder as well that year.

Shaka's last five team rankings by TR%

313
51
304
206
175

Marquette at 313 had the second lowest team ranking of any at-large to make the NCAA tournament.  The lowest?  Miami, who made the Elite 8.
