#106908 Recruiting - 2019

Posted by jimbo on Today, 09:45 AM

JG was offered by Duke. Good to see a local product get some A+ offers.

 

It really makes you wonder about the star rating system on verbal commits. By my count he has 9 power conference offers as well as a number from other quality BB schools. How does he only rate a 2*?

Today we were driving through NC on I-40 and passed the exit for Durham and Chapel Hill. Sort of like I-90 and the Albany or Loudonville exit....sort of...maybe....just a little. And our hotel has ESPNU!!

We had company and I missed most of the first half. What happened that caused coach to bench Nichols? Just lackadaisical play? He said he wanted to send a message.

Bench production is beyond pathetic. Over 40 minutes and 2 points?? No wonder they don’t usually get much time.

I joined late in the first half and then again just before Nichols tied it. Second half was excruciating but good fire and effort. Solid D. Stire used to dunk all the time when he was an underclassman so it was nice to see another flush. The sad truth is that this team, on any given night, is good enough to beat any team in the AE and bad enough to lose to any team in the league. Truly Jeckyl and Hyde. So I don’t get too high or low. Just watch the game and enjoy.

Going to be in Albany this weekend and want to see the new scoreboard in action. Does anyone know if they charge for parking at womens games?


Went to a game on MLK Day and it was $5 at SEFCU and free at Dutch.

Haven't seen really much of Fruscio and I don't really know anything about his talent level,
but his energy and enthusiasm I like.  Wonder if putting him in for a few minutes here and there 
to hound some of the opponents guards would be an option?  Just to harass a bit, run around
like a madman for a few.

Ummm, never mind.
Hahah. I put my hand in my heads and just laughed. That was bad.
Edit: I meant head in my hands . My command of the English language there was as poor as Nick's handling of the ball lol.

I was gonna say...I sit behind you at Casey and I’ve only seen one head so far.

I’m all for burning the redshirts, not just for this year, but next. But that’s why WB gets the big bucks and I comment on a fan board. Hell, start Fruscio. The kid will be so excited he’ll be bouncing from side line to sideline. Wax on, wax off!!! Get the Karate Kid in there !!!

Besides defense, it appears to me that this team desperately needs someone vocal and with fire in his belly. And that person has yet to step up. It’s hard to believe that after getting their a$$es handed to them in the first half no one was upset enough to fire up the team. Then to come out completely flat in the second half to dig the huge hole. Ten minutes of passionate playing does not a game make. Where is that leader? Who is that leader? WB needs to try and find one, but they should naturally develop.

Who has shown some fire on the court? After a hard foul? When they are behind?

According to Wyland’s show, at halftime CB went into the locker room,, pulled out a chair, crossed his legs and said “since nobody on this team is upset about this game, I’m not going to be either.”
