  1. Maybe I'm missing something, but when I clicked on the list it has him as #4
  2. She's been on the job less than a month. I think we have to give her more time before expecting signings.
  3. Is this something JG could have been invited to, or is he a year past that opportunity? I ask, because there are guys listed as being from the G-League.
  4. When I first read the topic, I thought you were saying that the NBA and G-League were merging. I knew it wasn't correct, but that is how it read.
  5. I still think we need two more bigs. You have 13 guys that can be on scholarship. 3 bigs is the minimum. When Linssen was hurt last year, Okoro constantly had to worry about getting into foul trouble. We don't necessarily need a superstar as the 3rd big, but we need someone who can provide depth.
  6. Some team like Detroit will get busted while the pay for play runs rampant among the blue bloods.
  7. I look at Crespin as Traore's replacement and that we still will need Linssen's replacement.
  8. And if that happens, isn’t Linssen in the exact same spot he is now anyway.
  9. Here’s an idea. Can we throw some NIL money at Linssen to come back and use his final year of eligibility?
  10. https://www.espn.com/college-sports/story/_/id/33858420/sec-pac-12-commissioners-visit-washington-pursuit-help-nil-policies-source-says Looks like the Pac-12 and SEC are trying to get something that makes the situation less pay for play and more kids being able to hustle to put a little bit of money in their pockets. Hopefully, something can get pushed through.
  11. File this under I don't think it will happen, but what about DePaul deciding that it will never be able to compete in the Big East and moving to the A-10. They would add an instant rivalry with Loyola. I could see them thinking that they have a better chance of having Dayton or VCU level success in the A-10 than being a perennial doormat in the Big East.
  12. I am a big fan of what Okoro did at the end of last season, but some on this board are projecting him as if he will be one of the best bigs in the country next season. There were times last season, especially before the ankle injury, where Linssen was the better of the two. I think that Ford is looking for that same sort of tandem situation for next season that he was supposed to have for most of last season with Okoro and Linssen. The pitch is come play for a top 25 caliber team where you will be in a tandem with one other guy and get a lot of minutes. I doubt any other team in the top 40 presently has only one other big on the roster to compete with.
  13. I know that Saint Louis is really far from his home, but those schools are really, really far.
  14. Not saying they would be my pick, but I wonder if they are considering Vermont?
  15. If he was paid to stay, that's just the state of college basketball now. I'm not saying that you are, but no one should be blaming a player for taking advantage of the rules as they are. I would totally agree with you if you said that you despise the new way of doing business in college basketball. I would totally disagree with you if you think Yuri's actions are somehow going to have a negative effect on our program that wasn't already going to occur at some point. This was destined to happen in this new system. Yuri was just the first.
