    It's slow so I thought I would share a highlight video I just found of Maishe Dailey as a high school senior. His time at Iowa was not very productive. Not exactly sure why. He does have a slender build for being 6'-7" and might have had trouble with the physical play of the Big Ten. As mentioned on this board before, Maishe actually played some point guard for Iowa. I think he could play positions 1-4 for us, even play point-forward. Yes, there is such a thing where with LCJ on the court Maishe could bring the ball up the court and initiate the offense himself. I am thinking he is likely to pick up for X at the wing and Ali will back him up (Damn, I liked X. Cool guy, great player).

    I have faith in Groce & his system.  Let Maishe play free and run & gun and I'll bet he has a really good year for us.  He was one of the best players in NEO his senior season.

    It was a 1 game suspension for who knows what. I wouldn't read too much into it. Now if he had multiple suspensions or was kicked off the team, that would draw some red flags for me. 

    +1.  1 game doesn't worry me about the kid's character.  He was just being a young man.

    Murphy in a prior article quoted an absurdly low figure for the operating expense for the CC team. I'm wanting to say it was something in the neighborhood of $10k, maybe less. The same article if I remember correctly mentioned the CC team had 1.2 scholarships so $10k wouldn't even cover that. I do think the university should have provided some transparency on what the real cost savings was. It certainly had to be more than what Murphy previously mentioned, but at the same time it has to be one of the lowest cost olympic sports. 

    +1. This is embarrassing.

    To be honest, it tells me who is interested in Akron’s football program & who is just here bashing.  That is a pretty big pick up.  Let’s hope it works out for both sides.  I was really just seeing if anyone noticed.

     

    I could have put it on one of the cutting threads & stirred up some negative comments about the program 😂 

    It's now safe to say one can see a pattern has developed which shows what kind of player Arth is interested in and what kind of player is interested in Arth.  The article notes Kelley-Powell's intelligence, quiet nature,  and cerebral approach to the game.  Arth is recruiting a bunch of sincerely well-rounded, intelligent student athletes.  If these guys can win it really looks like Arth is building a culture which we, as fans, should be able to take a whole lot of pride in.
