Recommended Posts

i have a good friend that is all about all things michigan.   he swears that michigan NEVER plays games academically.   i agree that is hard to believe, but this might the situation.  

what is more head shaking is carolina again exposed as a participant in academic distress of a former athlete.   sure that is on love for the most part but makes you wonder.

Thru google. Acceptance rate at Michigan is 23%. Acceptance rate at Mizzou is 77%.

Roy, this isn't a Love being in academic distress thing.  It is specific to the rules Michigan has in place for the credits required for upperclassmen in his specific major to enroll.  If Love would have started at Michigan and had the same credits he has now, he could play for Michigan.

That % at MO is a bit misleading.  State law says that if you graduate in top 50% of your graduating class MO must accept you.  Now you don't get to stay unless you meet the normal progression requirements.  MO has a high dropped rate for Freshmen.  There are a number of kids from less competitive schools than what students may experience in the State's larger population areas.  Thus some of these kids are just not prepared for the academic demands.

So you are saying google should put an asterisk on the info?  😁

There it is! The other visitor from last week commits. 6’9” South Sudanese-Australian Kuany Kuany commits to VCU after graduating from Cal in the PAC-12. Provides 9 ppg and 4 rpg last year in just over 25 mpg.
 
It is going to be really hard to figure out which teams helped themself the most, but VCU looks like they reloaded with several transfers.  I believe they have only 1 or 2 freshmen recruits, which may be the sign of the

Its been really quiet.  Maybe wishful thinking but I want players that have the ability to be in the starting lineup or at least rotation players for these last two spots. 

Maybe wishful thinking but a power forward who can step out and hit the mid-range shot or 3 would be awesome.  Would love to see a 2 big lineup possibility.  A tough ball-handling guard is a must.  Get'um Ford and Staff!

Possible recruiting violations in Columbia?  Reports that Caleb Love and Gates had dinner this week when it was supposed to be a dead period.  🤞

 

Dave Matter is saying it didn't happen.  

Dave matter is saying it didn't happen because the AD and staff said do you want to ever step foot in an interview again?  Several people have said it happened and he was spotted during a pretty busy time in the restaurant fwiw.

Dead periods do not mean no contact.  Just no contact initiated by the coaching staff.  A player can still contact the team.

Edited Guy Phillips Correction - No in person contact during the dead period. Hopefully Gates and Mi$$ou get the death penalty.

To paraphrase an old coach, they’ll probably put Cleveland State on probation for the sins Gates commits at Missouri.

From what I read, it would have been prior to the dead period which began on Thursday, but that since Caleb Love would not have been beyond 48 hours of his decommitment that he would not have been back in the portal and recruitable. Gabe seems to be convinced that Mizzou will not pursue Love and that Gates was at dinner with a potential coaching candidate. It will be interesting to see how this plays out, if he ends up at Mizzou I think it becomes obvious that this dinner happened and that they inadvertently or not were in violations of the rules.

Serious question: why are there even “dead period” rules anymore?  Players are paid, tampering happens with every single player, transfers don’t sit… it seems so arbitrary to enforce a period of no contact with recruits.   At this point, may as well make anything outside of threatening recruits legal.  Sign guys to multi year, legally binding contracts… only way to prevent it.   NCAA athletics are forever changed and there’s no going back.

Maybe because some people are still students and want to be left to study. Not every one is a “grad transfer” who is in it for a fifth year of basketball only

He does not have a full sample size for this past season....But he does have enough stats to make some projections.

First his slash line for the last season...58.3% (also his career shooting ave) /  76.3% (FT)...As he isn't a 3P shooter this translates into 2P% and FT%. ...A+ / B+.

Of significance ...had he played a full season (only played 20 games) he would have been ranked as 62nd ITN on 2P%.  

If he is shows up in a Bills uniform next season...he is projected to shoot 55.9-60% from 2P land and 76-77.2% from the charity stripe.

Computer says ...he could be a major difference maker IF he plays at least 500 min this season (around 17min/gm...played 14.5 min/gm this past season)

If he is can stay healthy he would be a really nice player.  His problem has been an injury history has resulted in him either missing games, playing hurt or working his way back into game condition.  His injury problems started with a knee injury in high school.

Thanks for the analysis Wiz. Credit to Malcolm for improving his FT shooting. That 76.3% was a big step up from his prior campaigns.

No news in awhile, so just throwing this out there.

According to Tigerblueprint.com said that Malcom Dandridge could return to Memphis
