Quite right about no one calling Bradley a powerhouse, and I never meant to imply that anyone did, simply stated that they aren't.
Isn't simply stating something doing just that, not making some weird condescending remark about being "mighty". Maybe take a break from this thread, you don't want it look worse than your Naadir Tharpe take.


In terms of East, I'm bummed as I thought he'd be a player. He was the only player on the team able to make his own shot outside of Mitchell. He may have struggled for a stretch but I thought he always at least played hard. I hope he tears it up at Bradley.

Damn, have you been waiting for 5 years to throw down that Tharpe line on me? You really played the long game on that one, well done. In hindsight my take on that situation was dumb.

Where does the "mighty" quote come from, you lost me on that one.

Holy shit. THIS right here explains everything. Everything. Dude spews out constant shit, gets indignant when challenged, and yet can’t even keep track of his own posts within the same damn thread. 8 hours apart. No “long game” here. What a bullshit artist.

The MVC's footprint may be easier for his family to see games as well.

In his twitter post he thanked his teammates and friends for helping him get through the last year and that he doesn't know if he would have made it without them. That immediately got me thinking that he was homesick, or never really felt comfortable in New England, so maybe his transfer was inevitable regardless of the roster and recruiting situation. Now maybe the difficult time he was referring to was being the starter and then getting benched? Who knows, but my mind jumped to a kid that was far from home and needed to get back. Regardless, go get 'em Sean.

He landed in a good place. I'm glad for him.

ESPN's transfer ratings (from list here https://www.espn.com/mens-college-baske ... 21-2021-22):

37. Sean East II 6-3, 185 pounds, PG, Fr., UMass
Committed to Bradley
An intriguing point guard prospect who will have three years of eligibility remaining, East averaged 9.3 points and 4.9 assists during his first season of college basketball.

Samba is "just outside" their top 50 list and would be 57th. There were 1 or 2 coming into the A-10, but none to UMass.

Good list. Carte'are Gordon remains quite the mystery.

Imagine the hype on here if Umass was getting a freshmen transfer who put up the numbers of East.

Hype is a wonderful bitch. No doubt people would be jumping for joy.

Reality: UMass Fans - "This PG who averaged 1.4 PPG last season is the going to dominate the A-10 next season"

But really, I'm excited for Noah, but Joleon is right, the board was way too harsh on East, only a freshman, with tons of improvement left in his game.
