about 20 minutes or so. 20 minutes I'll never have back but that's ok.

I haven't seen any of these guys play and have no idea of the actual level of interest (both ways) so I feel a bit ridiculous talking about this but I generally feel ridiculous talking about most of the stuff that interests me so... BIGS Potential Options: Chukwu - sounds raw and bigger schools seem...

Highly doubt we get this kid, but he sounds like a real point guard.

This is a bit disappointing. Thought we might have gotten this kid with the early notice, the connection to Williamson, and the up-and-down style of play. Sounds like X was in him early too though and who knows, maybe the conference upheaval swung the kid towards them. Wasn't concerned about the Wil...

I don't know if you can make any assumption on his shooting based on the 34% he shot from three in one year of high school ball if you haven't watched him play much. It's not a huge sample size and you would have no idea how his shots came about in the flow of the game. He could be the only threat o...

Fairly complementary article on Demetrius from Rant Sports. http://www.rantsports.com/ncaa-basketball/2013/05/08/umass-minutemen-bolster-future-with-commitment-of-demetrius-dyson/ That article read like it was written by a guy who has never seen him play before. Generalizations, everything based on...

Let's Give Them Something To Talk About, Part I: Recruiting

Since it is the offseason and there haven't been any inflammatory tweets in a few days to discuss, and since the dust has sort of settled with Farrell/Freeman leaving and Dyson/Hinds arriving, the roster situation has become a bit more clear. Looks like there will be 3 scholarships available for 201...

Not sure how much he'll contribute this year, but seems like he's got some size and athleticism to work with. Now its up to the staff to develop him (an area I think the jury is still out on with these coaches). Seems like a great kid too.

[quote="iwearglovesndhat"]Again my only question was if you weren't willing to put the info out there because it was pretty fucking inappropriate to put in on a board, then what's the point of saying you heard something? But since you apparently just posted it because someone asked if anyone had hea...

You guys can poke fun all you want I don't want to put it on a message board. If you really want to know what I heard PM me. If not that's fine I don't really care Then why even post that you heard something? What is the point? I don't get it. Is it the attention? Seriously, I am just curious. I ha...

Sounds like he is really on the rise. Would love to get him here, can only hope the early interest and relationship w/Williamson plays in our favor. He seems like a pretty smart kid too so maybe one of our strong academic programs fits an interest too. And maybe his lack of bulk will scare off some ...

I think it's safe to say that 12 players aren't going to get playing time. Ideal world (as in really low chance that this all happens) for me at least: FRONTCOURT Cady turns up his conditioning, learns how to finish inside, always attacking the glass: 30-32 mpg. Bergantino gets more comfortable on t...

Hey a cryptic message about rumors on a message board! Awesome! Let's try and put some suspense in the air! How about just not saying anything if you're not going to say anything?

I am pretty hopeful when it comes to Gordon -- just as much for his attitude as his abilities. Attack the rim, attack on defense, attack the boards. Maybe it'll be infectious and rub off on some his teammates, especially guys like Putney and Cady who can sometimes just drift around on the court or p...
