Re: 2020 Recruiting

You seem pretty sure he meant it to be public. When it comes to recruiting I have no idea how people outside the situation (and often even inside the situation) can feel so sure about anything.

For hobbies though I ordered a tetherball set from Amazon. Game on.

Re: 2020 Recruiting

I’m thinking maybe Odukale meant to send that edit tweet to the Pitt graphics dude directly. I mean he followed him right around the time of the tweet and then deleted it a little while after. Or maybe I shouldn’t give this another thought. In other news, this social distancing stuff has made me rea...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

Well maybe he’s going to play for Pitino at Iona. Joking. And the first guy on his follow list is the Pitt graphics guy I believe. Alex something or other. Would be surprised if it’s not Pitt. Between today’s Twitter activity and that Corey Evans dude flip flopping back to Pitt as the favorite, I th...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

From the Things You Notice When There Aren’t Any Games To Watch Dept: Odukale tweets that he needs an edit (presumably for some type of announcement) and then starts following someone who works for Pitt.

Might not mean anything. Might mean something.

Re: 2020 Recruiting

I saw Corey Evans now thinks Pitt is in a good spot for Odukale -- although he said we have a better shot than most people think. Or something like that. It was in his Tuesday mailbag column where he always seems to answer questions about, Pitt, Duke, Kentucky, and UConn.

Re: 2020 Recruiting

I can’t figure Walker out. He’s certainly shown flashes but they been just that — flashes. I don’t think his situation (starting mid season) or sporadic minutes have helped but he’s had four good to excellent offensive games and then a bunch of forgettable ones. His shooting has been pretty bad too....

Re: 2020 Recruiting

I also think despite CP’s struggles shooting the threat of having him out there does help with spacing. Tre is already being swarmed as it is but without that threat the spacing would be even tighter.

Re: KAEO: Tre Mitchell

I think Tre is fairly young for his class so I think with normal physical maturation and working out he will get stronger. If he gets quicker too...that’s a scary thought. I think he’s been turning it over a bit more after a stretch of cutting down on that, but I think that might be from having to d...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

Re: East and CP I also would like to see what East could do on offense where he doesn’t have to initiate the offense and serves as a secondary ball handler and could attack some close outs. He’s got a pretty unique game on offense. Most of his threes come off the dribble and not catch-and-shoot. Mak...

Re: KAEO: Tre Mitchell

I think you could make an argument that he is the best player in the league. He’s become a pretty solid defensive player and he is such a crafty beast on offense. I think there are arguments for other players as well, but there is a pretty solid argument for Tre as well.

Re: Game 31, 2019-20: Rhode Island (3/7)

Quick follow up I didn’t love that last call on Mitchell after rewatching it but I don’t think this is the game to complain about the officiating. It was pretty shitty both ways I think a little more so against URI.

Re: Game 31, 2019-20: Rhode Island (3/7)

Welp almost had it. If anyone other than Tre had hit some shots we win that game but they shot a combined 8-32. They competed though — to start off 2 for whatever they were and battle back says something. Rhody’s guards made some big plays — Dowtin little pull up and then Russell with the drive and ...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

I don’t know how often it even needs to get to that point. I think there are plenty of coaches who tell kids — maybe not so directly (or in some cases maybe so directly) — that it would be best if they found another school to play at whether or not the kid wants to be there and whether or not the ki...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

I am guessing the proposed new transfer rules are just as much about making it easier for kids transferring out to find new homes without sitting out as it is for kids transferring in not having to sit. Serious fuckin’ nuance right there. All of this talk of history has me deeply longing for Anton B...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

I've always been in the "you can never have too many guards" camp for college hoops (probably a bit too much in that camp if I am being honest). I think we could be a good team with the guards we've got, not sure we can be a great team though. I do think Garcia sounds like he is going to be very goo...
