So now, twice in this thread, you have made claims that you apparently cannot back up with facts.

The first was that you publicly called for Wojo to be fired during and/or after the 2015-16 season. Should be easy enough for you to "show your work," as we used to say in 3rd-grade math.

The second was that some Scoopers said, "Wojo always gets his man." I'd like to see evidence that even one Scooper (other than joyless willie, in his failed attempts to be hilarious) ever said it.

Sigh. Not sure why, Ners, but I guess you feel it's necessary to fill the void left by hoopaloop.

One of the  Mods, in Maoist fashion,  deleted a bunch of the Classic NERS threads that I brought back from the  dead one Friday night.  There was some great stuff by many contributors  in those threads.

I will back up Ners and confirm he did call for Wojo's ouster in 2015-16.

I'm sure one of my rants about how Wojo should be let go is in there as well. 

Curious, why would a MOD delete such things?  Seems so..... insecure.

Sorry, MUFINY, but your voucher isn't good in this establishment.

I did, however, get a kick out of your research report on Ners.

Markus was "said" to have mental health issues.....

I believe in another post he received "counseling" thru MU at some point.....

Smaller school......Just the kind of "non-big 10 type" program that would be a perfect fit and probably benefit the young man.....

What was wrong with Vander?

He helped win a lot of games for Marquette when Buzz Williams was the coach. That’s a felony to some around here.

Not true. After getting saved/plucked from the rodents, he wasn’t as good as “his fans” wanted him to be so he got blamed for every off court issue, bad attitude, missed slap of five, etc. once he led the team to the elite eight people started to like him again only to be broken hearted when he left early.

All he was missing was a consistent shot.  Otherwise was NBA ready.

UNLV grad transfer Jonah Antonio tells me he's receiving interest from the following programs as well as several others:

Illinois
Marquette
Xavier
Wichita State
Maryland
Georgia
BYU

Immediately eligible.

For as much angst as we have over Wojo talking to Jonah Antonio, he's got a pretty decent list of programs calling him. Apparently he played with an injured shooting hand this past season. I guess coaches are hoping that once he heals that he will be the 3PT specialist that he looked like he could be at Mount St. Mary's. Still not seeing it, would be near the bottom of my transfer wish list.

Radford grad transfer Carlik Jones has already heard from more than 15 schools, sources told ESPN, including:

Louisville
UConn
Memphis
Maryland
Marquette
Ole Miss
Ohio State
Cincinnati
Virginia Tech
DePaul
West Virginia

Give me Carlik Jones everyday and twice on Sundays.

Unfortunately, I think OSU is the team to beat...he's from Ohio. But yes, would love to add Carlik

The one thing with Jones is his 3PT% was drastically better this year than the previous 2 years. Stepping up in competition could mean a solid decline.

I'd definitely still take him tho

Either them or Louisville. Both pretty close to Cincinatti, if staying close to home is a priority.

this might have been posted already, but figured it was interesting enough to post (from Jon Rothstein yesterday):

"A year ago, 14 mid-major players who averaged in double-figures during the 18-19 season opted to grad transfer to power conferences.

none averaged in double-figures last season"

I agree he’d be towards the bottom of my list as well, but we have at least three open spots. Totally fine with Wojo casting a wide net.
I would take the Rick SLU program right now.

Want to get back on topic, but the person who "said" he used mental health resources was Markus. There's no real secret here.

I certainly do hope the optimism on Carton is real. Even a year away might help him, but I would hope we could get him some immediate eligibility.
Assume what I say should be in teal if it doesn't pass the smell test for you.

Ohhhhhhhhhhh....... but once they get into Wojo's "Elite Offensive System" they'll be sniffing 20 a game.

That's not even true. Unless Luwane Pipkins going from UMass in the A-10 to Providence in the Big East and averaging double figures at both is somehow not mid to high major. He's talking out of his ass, like usual.

Also, SMU transfer Jimmy Whitt averaged 14 ppg at Arkansas (is SMU a high major?).

Beyond that, who cares? It's a completely dumb and arbitrary measure of the players' decision. Most grad transfers aren't moving up because they want to/expect to be a main guy at a bigger program. They're just looking for an opportunity to compete at a higher level and play in important games ... even if that means fewer shots.

Rothstein hates transfers, so he's trying to somehow make a point I think. It's weak

Listened to Goodman's podcast yesterday with Bowling Green transfer Justin Turner. Mentioned MU as one of the schools that's making him a priority. He most certainly knows Jamal and Greg I'd bet.
