You have to realize that a lot of these theories are just speculation and wishes with no real substance.

Not a fan, but I will survive.

I have zero knowledge of the guy.

any reason you don’t like the signing or were you just hoping for a bigger impact guy?

Stuen is Coach Ford's 27 year old nephew. Played for Ford at Ok State. Promotion is good for Stuen's resume early in his career but of minimal benefit to us right now.

Part of it is I would have liked a somewhat more robust resume and he has come across on Twitter as a little immature a few times.

I assume we are saving a lot of $$$ with this hire-Steun's new salary as the junior AC versus Macon's salary as the Associate HC.  At first glance I am not a fan of this move.  I don't like the family connection and I don't see what SF brings to the table, especially since he has never recruited and Macon was a top recruiter.  Additionally, watching games it was clear that Travis relied on Macon both while the game was in progress and during timeouts.  Hopefully he doesn't put the same faith in a new, family related, Assistant Coach.  This is clearly NOT an adequate replacement for the experience we lost when VM departed.

Having said all that, I hope I am wrong.

I actually don’t mind the hire. He’s not going to be Macon, but I will bet a pretty penny he’s going to be a dynamite recruiter. 27 years old. 

Going to be a hell of a lot better than Tanner Bronson as a recruiter. Can guarantee that.

i was actually leaning along these lines.  Based off of social media he seems to be very personable with the players.  A young face who can relate and also seems to know x' and o's isnt a terrible thing.

You can't set the bar much lower!
