  1. Caught a glimpse of the two deep. Some really young guys with some important roles.
  2. I am speaking without any real information however, my guess is this is why transferring has SERIOUS downsides unless you are a straight up stud. My guess is he was trying to go up, FBS level, and had nothing going and waited too long to possibly come back to the Danes. Coaches will need to plan around you and I would suspect his scholarship was given up. There are ZERO questions this is a downgrade for Levi, who was a warrior for UA. It's really too bad.
  3. I dunno, just glad he's not going to Colby (unless of course he wanted the job, and then I'm bummed for him). Colby is a super, super small school...tiny enrollment. If was the "real" Colby (up in Maine) then it would be a really good DIII job. Fantastic support / facilities from the Alfond family...even more than they give UMAINE. Colby-Sawyer...meh.
  4. Job search should start and end with Matt Bourque. It won’t.
  5. Fizulich was previously recruited by Ivy’s and PL teams, and also held a PEO from Villanova. Ketner was almost a done deal to Bryant before take a prep year at WA. Yea, both guys definitely have some skill for this level and will provide depth at practice. Question is will they be glue guys like Fruscio and others before him. I would guess yes. But Fruscio was a special breed of kid.
  6. Yep. Agreed Paper great. Let’s see them play and come together as a team. That’s the key.
  7. Looks like we just got a commitment from Aaron Reddish. Top 400 recruit, top 76 sf. 3 star player. Little bro of Atlanta Hawks star Cam Reddish. 6’7 small forward.
  8. Wow. That’s a super bizarre move. Historically bad program in a pretty weak league. ACU’s run was an anomaly. Maybe he didn’t see playing time for himself with the new group or, vice versa, we had to recruit his spot because he made it clear he wasn’t coming back.
  9. It’s official. Woodward just pulled a fast one.
  10. Did I say something funny to make you LOL? I’ve been saying doles and hutch were staying for a month.
  11. Excellent that it has been confirmed. The team looks really good right now on paper...but so do a lot of other AE teams.
  12. Totally underwhelming. Wish him the best, represented the school well...took care of his academics, and I hope he kills it out there. But this is a lateral move IMHO...CMU is not a good MAC team. Had a spurt a few years ago...but is not a traditionally solid team. Tony Barbee may pull it together again (he was wonderful at UTEP, a disaster at Auburn)...so let's see. But terrible facilities, terrible fanbase for the level of ball being played...confounding move. Would have understood a move out west, like Kai.
  13. If I were a betting man, I think most of this is correct but with my personal opinion sprinkled: if Healy stays and hank hasn’t graduAted, Hank stays. If Hank has graduated, he may move on, regardless of Healy. As for Healy, the transfer portal is a funny place this year. If this was last year, I would say Healy was 💯 gone. But with so many transfers and no matter how well he shots, Healy is coming off of the tail end of 18 months of injury to his hip. I think two seasons ago, he’s scooped up early. This season, he may be playing a waiting game for Coaching staffs to settle on the bigger fish first. In the end, he may not like what he sees out there for choices. However, I also believe Coach DK can’t wait around forever. So, this could be an interesting one because I don’t think Healy’s choices are as grand as they once were. A really interesting move, pure speculation, would be if Odom had a spot for a shooter at Utah State. I think Healy would fit in well as a part time sniper. Kondrat was a walk-on so it doesn’t impact the scholarship situation I think Jojo will have a difficult time latching on anywhere but a D2 at this point Love the kid from the limited info I have on him however, he just hasn’t been the player he was since he left NAU. He would provide relief at the point for us if he stayed I think Doles is staying. He’s at every practice and there is a mid-Atlantic flair to this team with Maryland and Philly kids He was at Drexel as well so I presume there is some mutual fam iliarity with the staff Personally, he’s an inked in starter for me, only question being will he play center or power forward considering Newman’s arrival and Dre Perry and Drumgoole Depending on where coach slots in those guys will likely lead to Doles’ position or, quite frankly, where Coach decides Doles will play is the decision on those guys My gut says he stays and becomes an All-AE player
  14. There is nothing wrong with the statement. Forget 1 vs 4 years. The statement is factually and grammatically correct. He is joining for the 2021-22 season. That’s a fact. NLIs are yearly renewable. in any event, too much is being read into the line, IMHO. Thar said, one and done may be the new reality.
  15. I know. Was just thinking Eli is slacking. I did one of my own when I was bored. But if we keep some of the guys who have not already transferred, we will have a special team. right now if everyone stays, we are maxed on scholarships. I’m ok with what we have if that’s the case. We have two offers out for bigs next year. if anyone else leaves, agreed...we should nab a big
