  1. I think you're drawing a false equivalency here. Without supporting or condemning what Reid did during the Obama administration, I feel the need to point out some pretty big differences between what Reid did and what Mitch is doing now. Reid didn't enact the "nuclear option" until after Senate Republican had filibusters over 80 federal judicial appointees, effectively crippling the judicial branch of government for a substantial amount of time. It became clear that the filibusters were not about problems with any of the judges individually, but rather to stop the process entirely. If NG was the third or forth appointment that the Dems had filibustered, then maybe the comparison would be more apt, but right now it's apples and oranges. Why Republicans didn't just vote on Garland like they were constitutionally obligated to, I'll never understand. It's not like they couldn't have voted to just not confirm him. If they would have just done that they'd probably be seen it a lot better light right now. http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2013/nov/22/harry-reid/harry-reid-says-82-presidential-nominees-have-been/
  2. Correct me if I am mistaken somewhere in my logic, but I can't see any reason to leave the spot open completely if there are grad transfers available. Since they would be seniors, they would be off the books after a year anyway so taking two grad transfers shouldn't limit the number of 2018 spots we would have would it?
  3. I agree with this, but I also wouldn't be surprised to see DM getting more minutes at PG than JH by the end of next season. As much as I love JH and what he's done this season, DM may just have more tools at his his disposal at the end of the day. Either way, we should be looking at an embarrassment of riches at the position next season.
  4. Will that game be televised?

  6. Gutsy win tonight. It's not often you win a game where your opponent gets off 22 more shots than you do. Great game by Harper. He seemed to have a big shot up his sleeve whenever we needed one. And that 11-12 FT shooting from him should do wonders for his confidence going forward.
  7. Yep, and there is nothing easier to sell to a highly rated recruit on than playing time that just opened up because the guy in front of you just decided to start playing for a living. I think it's safe to say that we're already doing a good job of selling that idea to recruits given the attention we've been getting from guys like EJ Montgomery and and Khavon Moore in the 2018 class, both of whom are even more highly touted than Heron or Wiley was.
  8. Apparently our game thread wasn't the only place we were pronounced dead prematurely. My apologies for not know how to imbed an image. http://imgur.com/Z7TmlNf
  9. Yeah, missing them late was frustrating to watch. I'm curious as to why we didn't try to inbound to Purifoy late as he seems to be our most consistent at the stripe.
  10. Free throw shooting on the whole actually wasn't too bad. Wiley and Heron were the only players to miss more than 1. Heron just picked the worst possible time to miss his 4.
  11. The word throughout his recruitment was that she was going to transfer to wherever he ended up. It's possible that could change, but that was always the plan.
  12. Another year according to 247
  13. No worries, I didn't take your comment as you implying that he would follow him anywhere. I was just adding that I personally think that the potential landing spots for KB where JS would follow might be be smaller than many think, e.g. LSU, Florida, and a few others.
  14. I'm with you on that. But I'll add though that I don't think that many teams would have to be scratched off the list of KB landing spots for JS to pull the trigger. Personally, I am not of the mind that JS will follow KB to any P5 team. I don't know that he'd follow him somewhere like Wake Forest or Rutgers for example. There is also the human element of wanting the decision to be over with that is on our side. I imagine that not having any idea where'd you'll be going to school gets to be pretty nerve-wracking once you're only a week or two from being on campus.
