  1. Need to get him in a masters or doctorate program. Maybe he want to go to law school at Akron.
  2. Considering the year he had this year, I cannot imagine him getting another contract unless there is a complete turnaround in their upcoming season.
  3. Does anyone know how many years of eligibility he has left?
  4. Going to the transfer portal allows the student athlete to relive their high school recruitment process where coaches were kissing their butt. Then comes the reality of working hard to get playing time and having to please the coach to get on the floor. Little wonder so many kids are opting for the transfer portal.
  5. This would be his 4th school. Maybe round 2 in Akron would work better. I am sure Groce would jump at the opportunity to bring him back. (LOL)
  6. Little known trivia, Kobe's dad, Joe "jelleybean" Bryant, was a star for the La Salle Explorers
  7. Great point! On occasion I will check on our former players and share their successes.
  8. I wish Ali the best of luck and I understand his desire to play closer to home. If he works on his game, he could be a good Big East player. However, my prediction is the MAC championship and the NCAA game against UCLA will be the highlight of his college career. Although Ali was our leading scorer, he also led the team in minutes and shots. Freeman actually made 10 more baskets with 100 less shots. Unless he improves his game, I just don't see him leading his new team in minutes or shots attempted and he will average less than 10 points per game.
  9. Does anyone remember a time when after the season this board went pretty much silent and we did not have to worry about players transferring in, players transferring out, and where they were going?
  10. This is the new college basketball. We can probably expect this every year. I sure Zips fans are disappointed in that we thought our students loved Groce and would not transfer after winning the MAC and almost knocking of UCLA. We also do not know what Groce told Azziz regarding his future. Azziz was a project in that he had bad hands, not a good rebounder and was very slow moving his feet even for a 7 footer. There is a reason that Wynn got playing time instead of him. Groce might have told him that next year was going to be a struggle because they were going to be playing pressing defense and he may not have fit into their plans. Thus far the only transfer that really hurts is Ali but I would rather him transfer than have a disgruntled player on the roster.
  11. Ali had his moments but in the UCLA game he was a no show in the 2nd half. Big players shine in big games and he just faded. The last shot was terrible and cost us an opportunity to win the game. He is not a good rebounder and gets pushed around under the basket. He obviously had an attitude because he did not start in the Northern Illinois game. He score 20 points in that game and Groce put him back in the starting lineup. The one thing I disliked about Ali all season is that he would talk to the opposing bench. I think if he were a high character guy he would stay with Akron. He needs to put on some muscle and work on his inside game. I will keep track of where he goes but my prediction is that if he goes to a big program he will come off the bench and average 8-10 points. We still have a great nucleus of player and I just do not see his transfer as being a major body blow to this program.
  12. Yes, come over Ben, the last MAC star transfer worked out so well. (LOL)
  13. Thanks for the update. Great that Kwan is making money in the sport he loves.
  14. The last call on the moving screen was very weak!!!
