Yes sir. Lock down mode.. Retna scan to get clearance into the staffs thinking. We have a great staff I am telling you guys with the big money y'all need to lock this whole staff down for 4 years because it could get real fun real quick..

BTW, I asked one of our coaches if we have another 2019 scholarship to give. His response was "Not sure". Interesting response.


They got their eyes on someone..

Since we have a couple of guys on here taking credit for the Pope recruitment, I am sure they can tell us.
Don't underestimate all the good juju it takes to out-recruit the big dogs. What we lack in bags full of cash, we make up for in spirit & good luck charms.

I'm thinking the same thing, but where would the extra scholarship come from??? I thought that all slots have been filled.

But doesn't the young man that's redshirting now (transfer from Montana) count against the 2019 scholarships? I'm confused... Enlighten me, Ryan.

He counts against this year's scholarships. He's already part of the 13 active scholarships now with the redshirt. It was a sacrifice to get him this year to hopefully pay off next year. So he doesn't affect the four leaving because he's already counted.

Technically we only have 12 scholarship players who can play this year because of Nicholas' redshirt. If Comeaux is out, then it's just 11. A thin year to be honest with our bench.

Ok, just for comparison. Here's the stats for last year's roster. Remember we only had 12 scholarship guys last year because we had to eat Mack's for the year.



We had 9 players who averaged 12 minutes plus per game. Grujic and Bain played in most games in clean up duty or just in needed rest time when we had guys injured. The likelihood is that we'll probably see them in a similar role this year. Hopefully Bain will have a bigger presence, but history hasn't been kind the last 3 years.

That leaves 9 if John sits. Last year our one freshman didn't play. Obviously there were probably extenuating circumstances, but Fisher just couldn't get on the court. We have three freshmen this year. That leaves 6 locked and loaded players.

We have to have solid production from those freshmen. I'm confident that they are all players, but history suggests Keller will play them sparingly if he can. He just might not be able to. Mitchell might be the easiest to work in with Grujic as big man relief, but the honus will be on Oddyst and Jock to be crisp. And realistically, O as a natural point might be the lynchpin of our season.

We have higher sights with this team for good reason, but there is risk too. I'm so ready to go all in.

Every once in a while, that nacluth guy actually drops some pearls of wisdom on us...

Thanks, Ryan. Great explanation. And I agree, our freshmen are going to have to step up for us to have a really big season and postseason.

Which begs the question... Is O already a natural PG or a work in progress?

Edstile, Your right about that Nacluth guy. He's got some solid analysis. Just downright scary.

Nacluth's biblical name is Barnabus. Always positive. Glass half full!

I'm sure he's on the way to Walmart right now to buy a bigger hat for the bighead you just gave him.
