It began with Mark Price. As Ewing will find out, recruiting will be difficult with little to no ties to AAU coaches but Georgetown's history should help a bit.

 

Best of luck to Pat!!!

Charlotte fans thought the same with Mark Price but that card has yet to work. The AAU coaches have become these kids' agents and if you can't create strong ties with the coaches then it is going to be a tough road ahead.

What Ewing does have working for him is Georgetown's history of big men and his history of working with them. Alot is going to depend on what assistants he hires.

Well although I appreciate the player that Price was, Patrick Ewing he was not.

    • I am as big of a Cam fan as there is, but no he's not perfect. BUT, I will say, in his defense, a good deal of his shortcomings are due in part to offensive scheme and design.  You brought up Brady, whose offense is designed around getting the ball out quick and with timing and letting the receivers make plays.  The biggest complaint on this board since Chud left has been the lack of quick hitting, easy completions created by short, quick routes.  And while I see a lot of articles now about how Cam lacks accuracy on short and intermediate routes, and has ranked as the league worst, at least in 2016, he didn't struggle with such issues under Chud.  Our screens were a lot crisper for one and the routes were more varied and creative.  Furthermore, the last two or three seasons' decline in short and intermediate accuracy coincides with having a receiving corps among the leagues worst in getting separation.  Now, we draft two guys that are quick, fast and can get open in a hurry and overhauled the receiving corps with Shepard and Johnson as well.  I think people are going to see the accuracy problem was more due to scheme and personnel than it was Cam.  If healthy, he's going to have a ridiculous year.
