If you watch his mix tapes it's a common theme with him getting to the rim. His issues seem to be assist to turnover and 3% and they aren't awful but not great either. Perhaps being put in a little...

That's my call too. 8 losses give or take 2. Hopefully not too many early bumps and then finish strong. We have some good talent but just a lot of questions with the new regime getting things...

I think you almost have to front Wesson and try to deny the ball? If he gets position on the block you already lost the battle. I don't think we can stop him unless we limit his chances.

I don't see a winning result in the first game but then we have 5 in a row for CJB to get his bearings and figure out who's playing well and which lineups are most effective. He hasn't had much time...

It would probably be a lot easier to stomach if you just give the coach your support and stop making proclamations about if/when you will be calling for his head. That's not how support works. You...

I think it is possible to get better recruits. I donít think itís easy at all. Be patient and letís see what happens. Brannen May need more help who knows

One other thing I will mention about recruiting is Cronin found it awful hard to land any quality behind the one 4 star guy per year. I mean right now we have Williams for 2 years and Harvey but CJB...

We should be able to pull in a big with Scott and Sorolla leaving and Vogt as one of the successors. The jury is still out on Diara but I would think a good big wouldn't be too worried about PT. ...

After we landed those two (Jaevin and Harvey) it led to some of the critics to put feet in mouth. But now we are back to being impatient again. We have two quality recruits for 2020 already. I...

I would grade Brannen's recruiting as a B so far. There are so many things to look at and things we can't know yet. He ended last year getting Jaevin and Harvey. Then he starts this year with...

Some fair points on McNeal. I don't expect him to be a world beater but I think he will be serviceable for what we need at PG. If we can get him at 2 or 2.5 to 1 on assist to turnover and up his...

Tough call on the starters. Pick your poison between leaving your only other proven shooter on the bench, a 2nd big, or your PG. Adjustments can be made very quickly in any game but the starting...

Some very good points here. One thing I might take a slight exception with is having shooters. Obviously the Cumberlands can shoot. But with the emphasis CJB will have on pace and sprinting up and...

I agree...not much we can take from the scrimmage. Especially on D. I am sure the objective was to have fun and not get hurt.

But some of the main issues we all had before the scrimmage will...

We have two legit verified shooters on the team with the same last name. If we can get one more medium/high volume guy in that 35% plus range (Harvey/ Moore/McNeal) it should help a lot...even if...

Think it started in 2010 or very late 2009. We need some football gurus to get the football threads going.

Along with any risk of landing a recruit you also have to weigh the risk of not landing them which some people seem to want to ignore. You need to factor any reward side with any risk. SCrubb is a...

I would highly doubt he would be here if it were not for Gabe but that has little to do with whether or not he can provide value for us. He's at least a mid major talent with a gym rat work ethic so...

This is not a two scholly for one player deal. That concept is utterly ridiculous!
Unless you don't count the scholarships Cronin offered to guys ranked in the 300-400's. This whole concept of...

There are 2 spots left open. At least one big and likely 2. The availability of Scrubb would be the only thing likely to throw a loop in those plans IMO. And that could change if a player of ours...
