  1. I know this sounds stupid and it prob is since I don't know much about basketball, but if we land Tucker and Cooper ( as he reclassifies as 2019), do we have enough scholarships avail? I know the chance of getting both is small, but if Chuma decides to return...do we really have that many scholarships avail for everyone?
  2. Great update for folks like me who don't track this daily. THanks!!
  3. Not sure it is a laughing matter - Memphis and a bag man. However, with so many programs getting nailed, maybe that stuff as chilled as of late. Funny how so many programs are getting nailed, but NONE of it is being reported on. But when they wanted a story - the drove the Cam story hard everyday. The difference: all the big programs getting tons of negative press would drive ratings down. The Cam story, by itself drove people to watch ESPN for updates and people pulling against him. Sad how ESPN strategically decides what is "news" and what is not going to be reported on.
  4. I agree 100% - "CAPITALIZE" on that momentum. (Like that? Capitalize in all caps! I crack myself up!! ). Seriously, I think we missed that bump in recruiting after 2010. Not sure how that happened. Maybe we put down the wrong zip code on some postcards or something. IDK, but we did not get a bump.
  5. Selfishly we hope he comes back, but as Auburn men and women, we hope he goes to the NBA and does great. Only helps Bruce Pearl with recruiting. That is my take on it.
  6. This would be incredible. Funny how they compared Auburn BB to UK football. As I get older, I remember less; remind me pls. what year did UK football play in the "final four" or the CF Playoffs? I know they are trying to write a story, but I doubt UK football has had a coach of Bruce Pearl's caliber since Paul Bryant left UK for TAMU.
  7. Duncanville gets great visibility and is an elite HS program most years. I am sure the Texas programs are all over this cat. But kids sometimes want to make their own path. I am thinking of Mathew Stafford for example (Texas to UGA).
  8. your wisdom makes me feel halfway smart - " Now if we can use LESS PACKAGES because we have more versatile players, which would lead to less substitutions, which will lead to MORE HUNH and not give the D a chance to adjust - we will be LESS PREDICTABLE. " I must be learning....
  9. yup; I totally forgot about the freshman. Sometimes I am a knucklehead. Nobody needs to quote this and dogpile...well, nah - you don't, I already know it. Thanks for the reminder.
  10. is it just me, or are we paper thin at DT? I didn't realize we had such little depth
  11. Hope so, it would be nice to develop some QBs and build some depth from within, not consume grad transfers (as has been stated so many times before). I would love to get another 5* in a year or so also.
  12. I am a homer of course, but which program is having more fun? And heck, I can't believe I am typing this - WE ELIMINATED TWO OF THOSE PROGRAMS IN MARCH!!! And it was the UNC and KANSAS!!! If you only have one year, why go where there are 4-7 McDonald's all americans sitting around? Dang, that felt good to type!
  13. Dang that looks promising. Now if we can use LESS PACKAGES because we have more versatile players, which would lead to less substitutions, which will lead to MORE HUNH and not give the D a chance to adjust - we will be LESS PREDICTABLE. If we stay with the same old, package driven O, we may win 7 or 8, maybe. The SEC has figured Gus' tendencies out and written a book on how to beat him. Packages absolutely work in HS, but the SEC has caught up.
  14. any updates? Are we hot in the recruiting circles?
  15. I think Liam Neelson plays Bruce Pearl and says something like, "I have a special set of skills, I will use them to find your tendencies and then I will kill you in any tournament."
