Re: 2021-2022 Schedule

^ tough game. Looks like they beat Purdue this past NCAA tournament. They landed that kid, Abou Ousmane, who we looked to be recruiting last year.

Re: 2021-2022 Season

We're replacing Tre, one of the best big men in the A10, with Buttrick who avg. 3 and 3 at Penn State. It will be a long season, probably MM's last. Oh, c'mon, baseline47. Everyone knows it's not always the best guys, but the right guys with the right system and coaching. We have great guys in the ...

Re: 2021-2022 Season

^ That's an odd comment that doesn't really add anything. Those who follow the program might be interested in others' perception of how we look in relation to other conference teams. I don't understand the point about local writers either. Would you prefer something from, say, a Russian writer? A jo...

Re: 2021-2022 Season

This A10 offseason power ranking in the Dayton Daily News by Dave Jablonski doesn't say much about us, but ranks us 12th out of 14 teams.

Bump. Can we get a headcount?!

Re: 2021-2022 Season

A not very complimentary preview of the 2021-2022 season. Unfortunately, this is pretty much how I feel. I've been ranting about the frontcourt for weeks and they feel the same way I do. https://staringatthefloorboards.wordpress.com/2021/07/02/atlantic-10-2021-22-early-season-preview/ Wow! Very lit...

Drat. Jumped the gun. Thanks, MG. If the season goes south, blame me, not Matt.

Re: 2021-2022 Season

Did we escape with *only* two transfers (not counting Carl here)? Kudos to McCall for keeping most of the team together in a year when the transfer floodgates opened. Now, time for him to address the public & let everyone know what's what for this upcoming season.

Re: 2021-2022 Season

^I think that's probably right, with Garcia as a starter. McCall definitely seems to value loyalty, and these guys, other than Steadman, have been around. If a starting lineup like that comes to pass, our bench, in the aggregate, might be more talented than the starters. Nice situation to have if ut...

Re: 2021 Recruiting

Just reclassed from 2022 to 2021. https://www.zagsblog.com/2021/06/21/2022-three-star-forward-jai-smith-signs-with-overtime-elite/ I am confused. The article says he signed with that new league. Why would he still be looking or getting offers? My mistake. Looked quick and thought he signed with a n...

Re: KAEO: Tre Mitchell

Following in Marcus Santos-Silva's footsteps.. Beard's had success with transfers, and he seems like a very good coach.

Hope it works out for him. Guess this thread can recede into the archives now. Coulda been something special somewhere special. Now just shuffling around, like so many..

Re: KAEO: Greg Jones

I like this signing. The team's been missing a physical wing for some time. I'm sure he hasn't been guaranteed time, and he seems like a smart kid. So long as he has a good attitude and can occassionally help with D and rebounding, that's pretty good for the last scholarship. Hopefully the roster's ...

Re: KAEO: Greg Jones

Interesting. The staff were certainly prioritizing maturity in the frontcourt. We now have a few guys with size and games under their belts. One of our weaknesses has been rebounding and interior D. Hopefully Jones, Buttrick, and Steadman will provide a steadying and solid, if unspectacular, presenc...

Re: 2021-2022 Season

With all the transfers, the Tre Mitchell escapade, whatever, it seems like McCall talks a good game but is always looking for the short cut to get to the top. People started clamoring for his head during his 2nd season. For good reason. His poor judgment and lack of effective leadership created a t...
