It seems the Badgers do not put out offers all over place.  They go after a very few and if they do not get them, they go for Plan B.  I think Al was the same
way, did not put out alot of offers.   Herro and Hauser are by far the #1 recruits for Wisky and MU.  I am not sure Whisky has put out another offer for 2018.
For 2017, they seemed to get the players they wanted from the start, which is great way to recruit.

And in 2016 they were scrambling for leftovers in the spring....

Can anyone give me a parents' guide intro?

My 8 year old has been catching them, etc .. it's classic for him to start a game full-force, then realize there's actual strategy that needs to be learned, so he just wanders, not realizing all aspects of the game .. leading dad to understand the game to teach it down.  I've tried to find simple videos on the subject, but they often seem to wander.

Questions -

Is there any reason you'd have more than one copy of a guy?   I'd imagine you transfer all extra copies of lesser cards so your biggest CP card could use the "candy"?

Also need an explanation of gyms and fighting .. if you found a gym with some super powerful dude, there's no point fighting and losing, right?

And how do you fight?

Awesome for DJ(W)!  He looks tremendously happy.

Didn't realize Lazar played 12 games for the defenders.  Hasn't put anything on twitter since 2012. He seems like an interesting dude.

Not the way recruiting works.

If you only offer one guy at each position, you have no chance whatsoever.

It seems the Badgers do not put out offers all over place.  They go after a very few and if they do not get them, they go for Plan B.  I think Al was the same

For UConn, then they are idiots.  Basketball gets them 10,000 times the exposure as football.  I understand for other schools, that getting their name across the ticker even losing 100-0 gets them exposure.  That's not the case for UConn.

Football doesn't bring in enough people to campus or rally the community and alumni for UConn.  They stick with it solely because they think they sunk too much money to turn back and are still praying for a bid to the big leagues.

Their sole analysis is that if they get an invite to a P5 conference, they can recoup the probably around $30-50M they have lost on football over the last 5 years.  And then, they can break even moving forward.  Problem is, it is unlikely they get the invite.

Even if they do, they will never offset the $30-50M in losses.  They will be required to heavily invest in expanding stadiums, facilities and be traveling all their teams across the country, all while initially receiving less than a full share.  Once they do receive the full share, they will be sinking all addition profits into an arms race.  Its a less than zero sum game except for about 20-30 teams nationwide.
U Conn snatched defeat from the jaws of victory when they decided to put their stadium in Hartford . They would have been much better off with an on campus facility. Could have had some really nice football weekends.

I really wasn't kidding.  Dominic James was changing his name to Dominic Wright and started a company selling gift packages that automatically inflate when you open them called "pulloons".  He and his wife were co-owners of the company.

Really like that he is thinking about a career outside of basketball.  And yes, he is playing in Qatar.  Here is a blog he and his wife run.

For those that want to keep up with the Wrights.
Wow, I read through all of that. An amazing life he is leading with his Beautiful athletic Wife and Daughter. Doesn't get any better than that.

I think it's just early. I do feel Lewis earned the offer with his play. I'd almost include Malik Williams in this group, but am not sure we have a real chance.

I'm not sure the ratings agree, but I think Nwora may be head of the pack. His size and shooting seems like the type of combination Wojo would just love, and I think he's really helped himself this summer. I'm less confident of how serious MU is with the two Expressions Elite players.

That said, I could see taking Nwora and one of the other two if those commits were ready first. But if they took say Nwora and Lewis, it would really make a true bruiser a priority. Not sure Nwora could play the five, despite his height.
It would be great if we could sign Lewis and Nwora. They would be an interesting combination on the floor.

I just honestly don't know.  Does Chicos aka JamesTV have a nickname?

A racist misogynist who was banned from Twitter for being racist and misogynistic.
Who is this brand new Sccop member that's supporting him? And why is he injecting into a post about national parks?

Speaking of which,  Shawnee in far downstate Illinois is underrated.

It must be first come, first serve at the small forward position.  Since Lewis just got offered, they must be not to confident on the other 3.  Thoughts?
