  1. Pretty sure that B1G athletic scholarships are not 1 year renewable. It is a conference rule that those scholarships are good for as long as the athlete still has eligibility to play at that school. That doesn't mean a coach can't strongly encourage a player to leave, but the scholarship can not be pulled.
  2. You never know which Altman Moos is chasing! http://cloudtbirds.com/sports/mbkb/Jordan_Altman_bio?view=bio
  3. Northern Iowa let a kid out of his LOI eight years ago when there was a coaching change at Creighton. The new Creighton coach and UNI coach were friendly. The kid might have made a difference at Northern Iowa!
  4. Sour Mash was always a good time, no matter the venue.
  5. Timberline, live at the Royal Grove.
  6. Every basketball program complains about the effectiveness of their crowd. 8,440 of the fans at PSU made no noise at all Friday night. Because they weren't even there! Yet, somehow, their team was able to overcome this obstacle and win the game. Keeping track of who stands and for how long, who yells and how loudly, who arrives late and leaves early, are petty complaints. More important things to worry about. 4 pages now, and nobody has explained yet about how selling beer will fix everything! What's up with that?
  7. Uncle LaVar must have told Jordy about a great opportunity in Lithuania.
  8. Katina Powell is a very persuasive recruiter.
  9. 139 D1 games are being played today, employing 417 referees. I wouldn't go so far as to say there were 414 better referees, but then again, somebody had to be #415, #416 and #417. These guys deserve a nomination.
  10. I think most schools have vacant scholarships. I'm not kidding when I say Oregon has had at least one, and usually two unfilled scholarships every year. Maybe they are an exception, I only know about them (and Nebraska) and not about other teams. Most schools lose at least one, sometimes two players to transfer every year, which actually makes it rather hard to keep all the scholarships filled. It makes sense to have room on your roster for a potential late transfer (like Syracuse and Oregon did). And if they have to then sit out a year, that just makes your practice squad that much better. I'm not as concerned about the vacant scholarships, as I am about the talent level of the players currently on scholarship. I think the last two recruiting classes have improved that talent level, but more steps need to be taken to compete in the top half of the conference. I would like to have seen the addition of a JC big man. Even if he turned out to be only average, or below, it would have only been risking a two-year investment.
  11. Wow Dana Altman is leaving scholarships open? I know you are joking but....I would be surprised if he has done so 5 years in a row. Either way, nobody would probably say a peep about not utilizing scholarships if we were coming off an elite 8 run as opposed to two losing seasons. Actually, he has. At least one, sometimes two (or more!) each year. Sometimes one will go to a walk-on.
  12. Don't know why he would be visiting Oregon right now. The team is in Spain.
  13. Looks like this Lawson guy would come with two, possibly three, really good credentials! http://www.cbssports.com/collegebasketball/eye-on-college-basketball/25563443/inside-college-hoops-tubby-smith-is-facing-his-first-dilemma-at-memphis
  14. Shoulder might have been dislocated by Buckeyes tugging and pulling on him whenever he tried to move without the ball.
