  1. Yes, he was a Pitt recruit, to play WIDE RECEIVER as I recall.
  2. Grand Rapids definitely plans to use him in a "better role" than Akron. They plan to not make him the focus of the offense or give him more credit than he is due for his level of effort.
  3. No, not at all. That's what I expected of the game.
  4. Lil Cray looked good in the scrimmage which had all of the defense and intensity of the NBA All-Star game.
  5. That was pretty awful. I bailed early, after the men's scrimmage. The sound system was the system of the DJ and anyone speaking to the crowd was unintelligible, especially the shrill young lady attempting to emcee the event. The events were poorly planned and disjointed with delays and confused participants. The music of the DJ was deafeningly loud. There wasn't a ticket rep in the building. Just...awful.
  6. Chapman's dad was a KSU coach and he spent a lot of time there as a kid. As such, he was probably pressing waaaaaay too hard.
  7. I wonder if Nick Harney pouts during summer league games.
  8. I sure hope Bethune-Cookman and Lipscomb are back. I can pay for my season tickets just by scalping my tickets for those two highlight games.
  9. I get it, his actions hurt a promising season. I think you miss my point that he was not even a borderline NBA talent. Also, it has been 2 years, I think it's time for us all to get over it.
  10. Tree was a fantastic MAC player. He was not, nor will he ever be, an NBA talent.
  11. If he wouldn't adapt, there's no way NBA players expend the effort his defense requires.
  12. I wouldn't give up a good college job for a non-premier NBA job and certainly not for that group of toolbags known as the Houston Rockets.
  13. Well now you've done it. You know this is going on your permanent record, right?
  14. Sure, I'd love the Zips to be in a P5 conference, but it's a two way street. If I was single, I'd like to date Kate Upton, but she probably would not return my call. Those conferences have to want you, and that's not happening without a sustained period of success against teams of that level. I would opt for smaller advances, to a conference like the AAC. As for critical posters, this is an online discussion forum, People taking a contrary position or asking questions is part of a discussion, not a cause for excessive whining.
  15. He's not an NBA player, well, maybe the Nepal Basketball Association. He can dream, but he's not even a solid NDBL level talent at this point.
  16. The only goof on here that I recall wanting changes was some guy with a name like Old Man Crowe, after the tournament. Making suggestions to improve the schedule isn't an indictment of the program's leadership. GoZips was corrected for essentially defaming the Courage Award winner by completely misidentfying and mischaracterizing her.
  17. I think some of us understand that UA is trying to improve the schedule, but at the same time, I can't understand the pi$$y attitude towards fans wanting that stronger schedule or challenging the credibility of statements about things like UA joining the ACC or questioning UA turning down $60K to play. It's a DISCUSSION based forum, not an "I'll take my keyboard and go home now" forum because you're somehow offended by the other side of the discussion.
  18. Hope it gives him the sweats. I actually meant Bethune Cookman, but my point's the same.
  19. OK, since the decision has been made to again pummel the cold rotting carcass of this poor damn horse, the odds of a MAC team getting an at large bid are slim. That being said, the chance of a MAC team getting an at-large bid that has luminaries like Gardner Webb on the schedule is 0%. I'd rather have that slim chance rather than none, even if the team has to play for $60K. it's like playing the same damn par 3 golf course every day. At some point, you have to try something new and better. Oh, I hear they are now looking into joining the AFC North or the Premier League.
  20. Easy there sport, I never said we were.
  21. If anyone legitimately believes that our university has any chance of joining the ACC, I want what they're having. If anyone in the athletic department is wasting time on it, I think I want my money back. As for the attitude that we're too damn proud to take $60K for a game, you might want to look into a lifetime NIT pass as the Bethune Cookman's of the world and 21 wins over patsies will get you no respect nationally or from any selection committee.
  22. I think he was just that deep on the depth chart. I don't think he was in the discussion to play at OSU this year. He just wasn't a top 10 team talent. However, that does not mean he can't be very productive at the MAC level. His high school highlight videos are certainly indicative that there's some talent there.
  23. I am hoping Warren Ball can help make us our shortcomings at RB. He's been buried on the bench at OSU, but being behind guys like Hyde and Elliott is certainly not an indictment of his talent.
  24. Very impressed by the depth and quality of our receivers. Have just the opposite impression of out DB's, though a couple were decent.
