And exactly what is considered a success? Was this year a success going just over .500 in conference, losing the last four and another 1-and-done in the tournament? Not saying you are, but getting the feeling that many on here will not consider Boynton successful unless he rings up consecutive Sweet 16s right out of the box.
I've said similar since he was hired.

He hasnt even run a practice yet and some have already stated this is a failure. Just not sure he'll get a fair shake from a portion of the fan base. No idea how big that portion is.

Quirk - What a lame post. Of course the past is important, as it tradition. It give us a bar to measure where are in the present and shows what we can become, and right now our basketball program doesn't measure up very well to Iba and Eddie. You must be a

I keep thinking and saying here that the Eddie Sutton era represents a lesson for OSU and therefore it should be a tradition that is kept up. The lesson, in my mind, at least, is that if you want to attract good recruits you are going to have to win big. And if you are going to win big you must hire a big time coach who has a history of big time success. That was Eddie Sutton. There have been exceptions to this, but the odds are in favor of relying on this formula for success. Who really wants to play for a no name coach when your future is geared to wanting to be prepared to play at the next level? That is the reason some of the great wrestlers have picked OSU, just so they work with John Smith because of his success in international competition. So pay the going rate for success if you want success in Stillwater. Did Brad Underwood have the kind of success that matches his demand to jump from one million to 3 million? I think not! But if I was the AD, I would have then gone out and hired a coach who has proven to be worth 3 million. So instead of keeping Eddie Sutton in the past, I think what he taught the school should always be kept in the present when anyone is wondering why have not been going anywhere in basketball for the past several years. One and done at the NCAA tournament is what needs to be kept in the past. I hope that Mike Boynton proves me wrong.

Living in south Florida for many years, this is the first time I have actually heard about recruiting in this area by our coaching staff. South Florida is a recruiting mecca for almost any sport yet seldom do we recruit this area. I know it costs money, but having a coach that is familiar with the high school coaches is a must, and someone on the coaching staff ( I have not heard who it is) has already made their presence known. When I wear one of my OSU T-shirts lately people have come up to me and wanted to talk basketball and football. That's never happened before. Go Pokes!!!!

Why not strive to be on the level of KU or UNC?

Good luck getting a kid from south beach to come to Stillwater. Just sayin. No doubt a lot of talent but no chance.

Graham brothers they aren't. We'll see if it works out. Hope they are big 12 caliber.
Pretty sure that Dawson is ranked higher than either Joey or Stevie. You made a statement in your post that is completely false and because you've been called out it proves that you're about as smart as a mud fence.

Class of 70 - Agree 100%. Got to think that Castigleone would have found a way to keep a coach who was endeared by the fan base. That's what good leaders do, find a way.

Come on now. Underwood wanted more than he has proved that he is worth. Apparently you wanted to risk a repeat of the Travis Ford contract fiasco.
