What do you want with the last three schollies?   
Mane

Project post or grad transfer post

Hold the last one in case of transfer.

I am not a believer in signing up 13 kids,  11 to me is enough, so I would hold one for hopefully Mane.  That leaves 2, in spring coaches transfer so there still could be a high school kid that falls in your lap, then maybe one transfer or if Mane does not come, for sure a grad transfer.  Always
like 1 scholarship held back for you never know.

Yeahhhh...

Remember Tillman? All the CB picks and smoke leading up to his announcement was for MU. That all started because the MSU coaches hadn't heard from him yet, so people assumed he was going to MU.

Not discounting the info people have shared, but until he's got that MU hat on I'm not counting any chickens.

Mane, then a point guard and/or center. Zaire Wade would fit the mold, but who knows if any relevant parties are interested. Honestly not sure who the late risers will be, but at the moment it feels like those first two guys or bust.

Best grad PG transfer we can attain.

A traditional sit transfer.

Best freshman/grad transfer we can get our hands on, regardless of position.

Tillman might have came to MU if he was not having his first child, I am sure the mother had some influence on him going to Mich St., as soon as
I heard that I figured he was not coming to MU.  Makes sense.

Come on now.  Shaming a college town is weak sauce.  Appleton doesn't have a major university with 35K of your friends and peers and everything socially is catered around your experience.  I went to school in a town of 20K with 15K undergrads and it was amazing.  Not everyone wants an urban college setting.  I would have never been prepared for it.

Just thinking depth. Symir will have the helm, but we are gonna need more than one PG. I guess transfer isn't necessary if they get someone like Hunter.

Shooting.  Outside of Koby and Dawson, I don't see a ton of sharpshooting on this team.
Greg can keep teams honest, Jamal shows glimpses, but we need 2 more really good shooters.

Ehh, I live in Indy, its fine, my theory is that people who love Indy have never lived in another big city and just don’t realize all the things they love about Indy are true about all big cities. When I meet someone that talks about how great Indy is I ask where else they have lived and almost always the answer is some small to mid size midwestern town. Indy is a great event city though with plenty of hotels and bars in close proximity downtown. That’s not particularly relevant if you actually live here though.

Bloomington is a nice college town but I can see plenty of reasons why someone wouldn’t want to live there. It’s not some utopia like the people from there claim. The city would be nothing without the university and while that may be an attraction for some I think a lot of people find that it lacks in opportunities for practical work experience. Based on the small sample of IU interns I have hired a lot of students leave Bloomington for the summer which to me indicates a lack of things going on there outside the university. Also Bloomington is still in southern Indiana so if you get outside the university bubble you should expect to encounter some racism.

I assume you're from Indy? I've lived in the Midwest for 35 yrs. I've hardly heard a positive reference to Indy much less referred to as 'great' - Carmel, Fishers? Different story.

That said, I think Bloomington is an attractive college town.

So what can we expect from Oghodaro and Lewis? Do they just bring size like Theo, Brendan and Jamal and not much scoring?

Oso brings versatility.  He has played and guarded all 5 positions.   Lewis is an athletic banger working to extend his shooting range.

People who live in Indy think of it is big and it has some big city amenities. In reality it’s a mid size city. It has the 34th largest metro area population in the US.

Indy itself has the 11th largest population. My point being, it beats the heck out of Iowa. I have lived in Chicago, and Phoenix. It is not as great as Chicago, but I would take it over Phoenix in terms of restaurants, neighborhoods. I am talking the city itself. In terms of Midwest cities, I would rate them as:
1. Chicago
2. Minneapolis
3. Milwaukee
4. Indy
5. St Paul
then a big dropoff

I’ve lived in 4 and explored quite a few more.

To each their own.

Clearly not much of an explorer... Not saying that Chicago's everyone's cup of tea but to say "the same things can be found in every Midwest city" is ridiculous unless you stick to interchangeable white neighborhoods.

See we've literally done this exact thread before. Chick asked me that exact question 6yrs ago. The only thing that's changed is more neighborhoods around Chicago and more time Ireland than before.

I'm not saying it's for everyone. But let's start basic there's only two other Chinatowns in all the Midwest one in Detroit one in Cleveland. That alone means that things can't be found in every midwestern city. We can get into little India's, little Korea's, polish village, little Italy, world class dining, beaches, (To my knowledge MKE is the only other one?) ethnic sports (GAA, Aussie rules football, cricket) and more that if found in other midwestern cities are extremely small relative to Chicago's.

Tower asks, "Now that we have Dawson, what next?"

I say it's nickname time. How about 'Magic'? Can't wait to see what he can do against Georgetown.

I live in Detroit. There’s definitely not a Chinatown. There’s Corktown, Mexicantown, and a huge polish neighborhood (obviously tons of other neighborhoods) but no Chinatown. Maybe google says there is (I doubt it) but there’s not.

Anyone who says Detroit isn’t the second biggest Midwest city is a fool

Google said there was so I took it at its word. Thanks for the correction!

I should be embarrassed because I was curious and wanted to see how many there were? Some academic you are, "don't research anything just make assumptions!". Your faulty assumption is that I researched that today for the purpose of this.

Or is your point that I should subscribe to travel magazines? Or just "know it"

I just think it’s funny that you bag on people’s opinions of cities, but your knowledge is based on google and not first hand experience.

I've been to DC 3x, NYC 2x, Cinci 4x, Indy 2x, Grand Rapids, Detroit, lived in Milwaukee, Minneapolis, St Louis, Phoenix, and Boston more times than I can count, Seattle, Providence, Vegas, Denver, and San Francisco Just because you found a weaker spot in my travels within the states doesn't mean I haven't been anywhere Sultan.

I have not 'bagged' on anyone's opinions of cities in ages, I admit I used to do that and it is why I kept saying "I get it's not everyone's cup of tea" but his statement was the equivalent of someone saying "Yeah you won't find anything special about London you couldn't find in Norwich"

Are you the Yellow King?
You actually have a degree from Marquette?

Quote from: muguru
No...and after reading many many psosts from people on this board that do...I have to say I'm MUCH better off, if this is the type of "intelligence" a degree from MU gets you. It sure is on full display I will say that.

So obviously, now that we have Dawson, what's next is another discussion of Midwestern cities.

I've long believed that Indianapolis is underrated. By that, I don't mean it's one of the nation's great cities; it's obviously no Chicago (or even Minneapolis). But I think its reputation as "India-no-place" is unfair. There's a lot to do there. The rest of Indiana that I've seen, however, is pretty cruddy. Certainly nothing special about Bloomington.

If I were a college basketball player and I wanted some feel of a city -- an NBA team, a few cool districts near downtown, a good restaurant scene, etc -- Milwaukee would be an easy choice over Bloomington.

I live in Indianapolis now and it's fine. It will never be seen as trend setting city and it doesn't have to be. It does seem like they're trying to update it with more amenities associated with "cool" cities - better restaurants (at the expense of generic chains) and breweries, more one-off "pop up" events and bars, better concerts, more emphasis on the individualized neighborhoods, etc. They already have both NFL and NBA teams. I've lived in and been around enough other cities to know that that Indy isn't that far behind.


P.S. Glad we got Dawson, what next
