  1. Rutgers took a flyer on the guy who'd been the HC at Stoney Brook for something like 12 years. It's hires like that which make people think the mid-major flavor-of-the-month hiring process works.
  2. Personal was what people were getting about firing Tim Miles and Doc Sadler. Happy he's losing his job; he doesn't deserve the buyout; he should be paying us; etc. That's personal. And that's trashing someone. Saying there are some issues and some off-season changes probably need to be made is just being critical but I wouldn't classify that as trashing anyone. Observing that a given set of recruits seem to have a common shortcoming is not trashing recruits, either. Or players. It's just making an observation. FWIW, I disagree with HB on something. He seems to think tha
  3. "Trashing" to me means mean-spirited and personal attacks. Suggesting that some changes need to be made is not trashing. I agree completely with HB on this: some changes need to be made in the off-season. I think Fred probably knows talent, but I think he's relying on a schmoozer who isn't really a hoops guy to do that initial screening for him. That ain't no way to find diamonds in the rough like Miles was able to uncover. Abdelmassih might have his place and might be able to fill a role. But Fred needs another recruiting guy. And my best recommendation is to go find someone who c
  4. Lincoln and Hell have something in common today: They have both frozen over. I agree with NUdiehard here. Hey, it happens. I often disagree with NUdiehard but it's usually me that's wrong. So, the fact I agree with him here could be a good sign or a bad one. I think our biggest problem is talent and, as I've told some people privately, it's just an odd combination of players that this staff has assembled. NUdiehard calls them one-dimensional. I'd say it's actually more troublesome than that. It's not just an issue of being one-dimensional. It's that, while e
  5. First of all, let me just say there's some macabre humor in reading an argument among several posters about who is the worst player on a bad basketball team. Second, this was a good bounce-back performance after Ohio State. While the fans might be folding up their tents and getting ready to head home, the players haven't. We sucked out loud at Ohio State, and it would have been easy for the players to just phone it in after that. Instead, they gutted out a performance that had them playing Michigan State even in the 2nd half. That's actually encouraging.
  6. They call it a delay of game. I'm wondering what it is about flopping that delays the game. If refs don't call a charge and the defender just hits the deck, play just continues. What's the delay? I hate it because it invites inconsistency in officiating. One time down the floor, Teddy Allen spins toward the defender, defender flops, and Teddy gets whistled for a charge. The other end of the floor, same official, and it's a blocking foul or a flop against us. Seems like we're never the beneficiary of inconsistent calls.
  7. If Eduardo is 228# now, as his ESPN profile says, I wouldn't be surprised to see him come in close to 240# next fall. I wish he had Yvan's rebounding determination. I would love to see those two matched up head-to-head in practice. Someone in another thread wondered if Yvan this year would be able to score on Yvan from last year. I'm really curious if Eduardo from this year can score on Yvan from this year.
  8. UPDATE: CSU won. Biggest comeback in Mountain West history. The reason I bring up Mensah is that he and Eduardo seem like pretty similar players. Eduardo needs some reps. Getting Covid was a huge setback for him. I'd love to see what he can do when he's fully in playing condition. He's a bit raw right now, but you can see the potential there. He has nice, soft hands. He moves pretty well. He's extremely long and he's fairly athletic. He's not perfect. He has some rawness to his game. But if he develops his footwork, learns some spin moves, and just gets a feel for the g
  9. According to his profile on ESPN, Ed is 6'10 and 228#. According to 24/7, he was the #214 recruit in the nation coming out of Compass Prep I'm watching CSU vs. SDSU* right now and their starting center, Nathan Mensah, is averaging 10 and 8 on 62% shooting. According to 24/7, Mensah was the #297 recruit in the nation coming out of Prolific Prep. And he was 6'10 205# coming out of HS. According to his ESPN profile, he's 6'10 230# now. He's the starting center on a team that beat #22 UCLA and #23 ASU. P.S.
  10. Not any better than he does now. His defense is his best trait.
