I haven't seen this Hester play,but I read that Memphis and South Carolina are both interested in Moss. 

 

Memphis, SC, and Akron are the one's I've heard most.  If Memphis replaces Tubby Smith with Penny Hardaway, it's probably a done deal for him to go there.  If they keep Tubby, it could get interesting.

This is a good read.  Not sure why but the article makes me think the MAC will divide up not necessarily East and West but by the go getters and mediocrity.   I see Miami joining Akron and a few others in the first group.  Skip please feel free to set me straight as always.

Sometime around the tourney I read something about Steinbrecher wanting to scrap divisions completely and going to a 22 game conference schedule.

I would like that.  I didn't mean it would literally break up into the haves and have nots but that right now some schools have had new coaches for a few years now and just aren't getting traction unlike say Cal State Fullerton.  And there may be an even more dominant core of top MAC teams.

Old Tubby was whining a couple of weeks ago about how often college basketball players transfer. This from the guy who's been one of the most transient coaches in college basketball. Hypocrite.

Tubby to DeKalb?  Tubby to Kalamazoo?

 

Is this our version of BobcatAttack's TOS thread?

I don't know why people here are so openly hostile to the guy I long considered the second best coach in the MAC!  Steve Hawkins has done more with mediocre talent than any coach in the league.  On the other hand, he's the guy responsible for recruiting the talent at that level.  And he's probably on the ol' hot seat for 2019.  Did anyone notice the attendance at our game there?  Not sure if it hit 1000 corpses.

Ohhh.  I was thinking Time Off Soon or Terms of Service or Termination on Sight.  I guess all three could apply

Not sure if this has been mentioned anywhere yet but Virshon Cotton is transferring, according to his Twitter. He stated it was mutual decision between him and the coaches.

Probably for the best. But right now we're without a true PG.

 

EDIT: sorry, I'm a little distracted. I forgot about Loren Jackson.

Hester can run PG as well

Bittersweet. I think his potential, talent wise, was quite high. But ultimately he wasn't the best fit for this team and the culture Groce is trying to build. 

 

Having two scholarships open is huge in my opinion.

Virshon had some great moments we will always remember with Western game and BG game as well.  But I still remember watching him go after Jimond and there was the suspension that was pre-pink eye.   When Virshon had a big game, Groce let him do the post-game interviews.  I appreciate that Groce is able to make a hard call and put sentiment aside in order to build a team.  (If that's how it played out).

You don’t give up on a talent like Cotton, especially with his ability to want & make a game winning shot as a Freshman. Those are hard to find. 

Remember What Ivey was like as a Frosh/Soph. Does that mean Groce would have given up on him too. 

His transfer is a big loss.

It was mutual. They "gave up" on each other, which I think is a bad way of putting it.
