It's a good thing that you are not the negotiator.

I don't like guaranteeing anyone minutes....but I think he would start for us. He would come in as a Junior next December. At the PG spot you have Dawson/Duane who Wojo seems to see more as combo guards, and freshman Nick Noskowiak. He could be our starting PG. Kid was electric in March last season. I wouldn't mind seeing him in blue and gold one bit.

That being said, Chicos guess of Wichita State is a good one. I'm sure they would love to welcome back the hometown kid
He is a solid player. If we are doing a transfer I would prefer a tough forward who can board. We are full of guards and my concern is a guy like this would screw up the chemistry

1. Some universities interpret it is a requirement of NCAA bylaws.
2. School cannot pay for their tuition after eligibility runs out and most cannot afford tuition without help.
3. It can hurt APR score.
4. Administration views taking a basketball player who has no chance of graduation as unethical. Exploits the athlete part of student athlete and doesn't support the student part.

So giving someone 2 years worth of free education/the opportunity to become 2 years closer to completing a degree without paying a penny for it is "exploint[ing] the athlete part of student athlete" without "support[ing] the student part?"  Not to mention, reaping the absurd amount of monetary benefit that the student athletes on the basketball team bring to the University is not "exploint[ing] the athlete part of student athlete?"  If these are truly "administration views" then I have some serious questions about/problems with the administration.  Especially at a Jesuit University.  The Jesuits were about allowing underprivileged people the opportunity for a quality education.  We're going to tell a kid who has worked his butt off to go from not being eligible out of high school to completing an associate degree to become eligible for division 1 basketball that he's not good enough for our school because he won't complete his degree in 4 years when we don't even require that from the rest of our student body?  Wow.

When someone on multiple occasions says my take on the coaching last season was hyperbole...I'm basically being called out on my position. It wasn't an exaggeration.  As for me mentioning my "credentials" I'm giving a basis for what I'm forming my opinion against - personal playing experience as well as lots of time spent around coaches and having done some coaching myself. I sat court side at every Marquette game while at MU, coached at ONeill and Deanes camps, sat 1 seat down from Mike Dunleavy and Chris Ford for 41 home Bucks games per year for 3 years while at MU...so I've seen and been a little closer to the action than many have...and when I said worst coaching performance I'd seen in 30 years I meant it.
No it doesn't take having played the game at a high level or been exposed to it at a high level frequently to allow someone to make a good point on the game - yet my exposure to the game is what it is and has been. Generally when people seek the opinions of a person in any field, they value those slightly more of someone who had a high degree of experience in the field. I've said before I'd never weigh in with any kind of passion or authority on something like band, an instrument, or sport such as wrestling which I have no experience in - and I'd put a little more credibility in with someone who has participated extensively in those endeavors of I were engaged in a discussion on such a field/sport/skill.

The problem is that you let your passion get in the way of your reason. You disagree with the rotations and who got the most playing time. Fine. That's a topic that reasonable people can differ on and debate. Except if someone doesn't agree with your position (including the coach) you brand them stupid. And after calling everyone else stupid you assert something that's beyond stupid and annihilates your credibility - that Buzz was throwing games. I don't care if you've sat on the bench next to Red Auerbach for your entire life - that's flat out crazy. And people who stick to that kind of stubborn crazy are fun to bet with but aren't reliable analysts. You're a good guy and you know some basketball but you're leading too often with your heart and not your head.

Let your experience speak for itself. Experts in the field don't need to tell everyone they are experts in the field. They simply speak and because they have so much experience, their points are better and more accurate than the novices. Those who try to hammer (I liked MU82's description) others with experience usually just end up hurting their own cause.

Again, you make really good points Ners. But the extra stuff you though in there really turns others off.

How does that make him a troublemaker?


It was a joke.
