  1. Your attributing a middle aged male intellect and mindset to 17 or 18 year olds.
  2. If the value of a specific school's degree had any role in the mindset of 17 and 18 year old basketball recruits, the Ivy League would leapfrog the ACC, SEC and Big 10.
  3. Eastern Michigan had a front line of 6'9", 6'10" and 6'11". They were 15-17.
  4. Not conceding a damn thing. Just being rational enough to realize that no team duplicates the two of the best players in its history on a regular basis. KD recruited 2 of them in 16 years, yet we're to expect Groce to get them every year? The staff has a duty to turn over every rock and try to get every talented player that can help the team but the reality is that quality big men don't grow on trees.
  5. It's also unreasonable to use Zeke and Big Dog, arguably the two best big men players in UA and MAC basketball history as a measuring stick for big men available.
  6. The league Zeke is in is a new league started by a group of owners that weren't happy with the way that the old Canadian pro league was run. As I recall, the old league had a ridiculously low salary cap of around $150 to $200K for the entire team.
  7. Let's be honest. We'd be happy with 27th year transfers if they'd win the MAC and get to the tournament. We certainly have preferences as to team makeup, but in the end winning trumps those preferences.
  8. He's played in it multiple seasons. I think he may still be playing. If you can't tell, I am still recovering from my frustration from the "Harney years."
  9. Any league in which Nick Harney has starred is not one that emphasizes defense or effort.
  10. Buffalo. In the words of the immortal Ric Flair- "to be the man you gotta beat the man."
  11. Exactly. Many may recall Banks started at the start of last season. I am not "fawning" but I think this roster shows a continued growth of talent on the roster. I damn sure won't be happy if it is a 2 or 3 win growth, but I do see things trending in the right direction (other than they haven't found that source of unlimited 6' 11" talented D1 players).
  12. St. John's isn't what it once was but a kid with a ride there should still be able to be a contributor in the MAC. Technically, Marquelle McIntyre is a holdover from the Dambrot era.
  13. Looks like last year's offense- lots of effort but too little movement! Sorry, couldn't help myself. GO ZIPS!
  14. Interesting. I wish the kid well. He always played hard.
  15. No grousing here, just an observation.
  16. He's a little busy watching the Elton John movie for the 7th time. Here's another article- https://www.tallahassee.com/story/sports/2019/06/10/terry-bowden-joining-clemson-football-coaching-staff-unpaid-intern/1411736001/ If Terry's position is unpaid, it leaves UA, I assume it leaves Akron on the hook for the full boat.
  17. Mike Davis is solid but it sounds like he has a teeny weensy bit of Marv Marinovich in him. I think the kid was probably the most ball dominant player we saw all year. I suspect that Mike benefited a little from Antoine being his son in getting the job and Antoine benefited from Mike being the coach with no limitations placed on his game.
  18. Interesting article on Detroit Mercy's Antoine Davis who took approximately 900 shots (really only 26) at the JAR this past season. Daddy-ball at the D1 level. https://www.si.com/college-basketball/2019/06/03/antoine-davis-detroit-mercy-mike-davis-nba
  19. My point was that WVU will do something OSU won't- play the "lesser" Ohio schools.
  20. It is nice that the largest in the State of West Virginia will do what the largest university in Ohio won't.
  21. Translation- "I screwed off academically for the last 4 years and believed I could succeed solely on my athletic talent, or I have a higher opinion of my skills than the college coaches, so I am going to prep school to qualify or further showcase my skills. Please respect my decision of choosing prep school over junior college."
  22. Aaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh, finally some damn news.
  23. Very odd looking shot. It goes in, but it isn't pretty form.
