I know a lot of HS coaches as well.  Many love Bo.  He always made time for the WBCA.  Never heard one coach describe him as arrogant. 

My coaching friends have by in large liked Bo, Buzz, Wojo & Shaka.  Crean (predictably) was the outlier who everyone hated.  Not hard to argue.
I can't think of a single D1 HS coach who didn't laugh at his arrogance...but acknowledge his success...when he was at Platteville/UWM.   I was out of that group by the time he was at UW. I interacted with him as a player and found him to be arrogant and insincere as well.  I have a number of friends that played for him. I'm surprised by your commment...I just thought it was common belief.  He didn't make many friends in the coaching ranks with his colleagues either.

Or his players, literally telling recruits not to come to Madison, during official visits

Bo had the ability to convince you he was Jerry Petigue’s starting power forward on the 1964 Cuba City state runner up team. 

Gard can’t convince a recruit his first game is Greg.

Really? Cause I know for a fact that Bo was hard to play for. When he coached that USA team of college players, nobody in that locker room like him.

And that’s straight from the mouth of one of the players on that team.

I knew a lot of HS Bball coaches for many years....nearly every one of them liked and admired Bennett.  Nearly every one of them found Bo to be an arrogant POS...though he backed it up. 

My understanding is Decker wanted MU and Buzz didn't want anything to do with him/his family...and Frank the tank developed past anyone's hopes.  Bo had to have a little luck to have the post season success he had (no different than TC with Wade), but he could coach. 

Gard is in serious trouble.  I honestly hope he remains just relevant enough to keep his job...if you have to pick a coach to recruit against in-state he is about as good as it gets for MU.

My dad was a longtime HS coach in Wisconsin. He could not stand Bo Ryan. Off the top of my head, I can quickly name a half-dozen of his colleagues who also were not fans.

Evan Turner averaged something like 7 minutes a game on that team and in less then a year, he was the number 2 pick in the draft.

Yeah, that might show that Bo is a better evaluator of talent than he's being given credit for.

Yea and Bo absolutely was obsessed with Quincy Pondexter, it offsets.

Right. Which is why I didn't say "great" or even "very good."

Whether Gard is "great", or Gard is "good", let us thank him for our food.

Curious to know, did MU or Wisconsin try and recruit that kid?  Surprising he barely played at Illinois the first year, goes to Santa Clara for a year,has a special season, next he is first round draft pick, now killing it for GS?

Wojo offered…..others would now how serious he recruited him…….UW didn’t offer and I don’t think recruited him at all.

Might have been some other circumstances in play there.

Curious did MU or Wisconsin recruit this kid since he is going to be drafted tonight?  He transferred from Illinois to Santa Clara so there was
a chance you could have gotten him after he left Illinois?  Really would have helped the Badgers!

Which would explain asking the same question 13 months later.

I have no memory of him whatsoever.  And I didn't remember you asking about him last summer.   When I saw the current thread I used the scoop search function and found the old thread.    It made me chuckle.
