Michigan hired Juwan Howard. Weird hire for them. No head coaching experience and only 5 years as an assistant coach in the NBA....

[quote]I could see something similar to that lineup. Reese will never be our starting center imo. Kid wont rebound.[/quote] Smith is statistically a slightly worse rebounder. This is one of the reasons we will miss Hall. We have to hope Hawkins can be that guy that gets us the boards. ...

Looks like our roster is set... Time to play guess the rotation... Starters: 1. Kira (~30 mpg) 2. Petty (25-30 mpg) 3. Herb (25-30 mpg) 4. Rojas (20-25 mpg) 5. Reese (20-25 mpg) 25+ minutes: 6. Bolden (backup 1/2) 7. Mack (backup 4/3) 10-15 minutes: 8. Jaden Shackelford (b...

[quote]Did they keep this quiet until today to keep up relations with Mountain Brook and Bucky?[/quote] My guess is for perception sake. We took a hit not getting the most coveted recruit from Alabama in some time so signing Rojas right after softens the sting....

One of the more dramatized recruitments in our history, followed the day after by a kid not even committing before sending in his paperwork :lol:...

Yeah, Algie Key was an All-American. I wouldn’t hope for double digit points though. If we got an SEC caliber rotation player, I’d be happy....

[quote]If you don't want to hear my opinion on religion, try to make sure nobody brings it up.[/quote] Let’s revisit the order of what just happened... 1. Our coach mentioned God in a quote on why he’s staying at Alabama 2. Someone posted that quote here as it relates to the concern of some t...

[quote]Yeah but we also havent played for 2 National Championships since 2013[/quote] Recent success doesn’t always indicate the prestige of a program. Butler went to the Championship game in back-to-back seasons, but a low assistant replaced Stevens at Butler. They’re definitely a better job,...

[quote]Top Tier they mentioned was Brad Stevens, Mark Few, Tony Bennett, Billy Donovan, and a couple others. [/quote] Their sports radio hosts think any of these are possible? The majority of our most delusional fans didn’t come up with a list so ludicrous....

[quote]Ok well if he’s receiving 100k then I don’t feel sorry for him being stuck on a sucky team. He knows the potential consequences of going there and he knows the benefits as well[/quote] :lol: Where did I say you should feel sorry for him? I just don’t see the point in holding a grudge again...

[quote]I hope he signs, Wade gets fired,they get sanctions, and his arse is stuck there[/quote] Seems unnecessary to hope that. Why blame a kid for taking $100,000+? Hard for him to turn down all of that money to stay home and rep the school he’s a fan of....

Not sure he’s a one and done kind of player, but he’s much better than what most of these recruiting analysts are giving him credit for. He’s an extremely talented player....

[quote]Donta's a totally fine rebounder. He can't defend the post though - he just gets mauled by stronger guys. Chris Silva was just tossing him around.[/quote] If it wasn’t for his lack of physicality, I’d be very surprised if he went undrafted. He has a solid looking shooting stroke, and as hi...

[quote]JMike led Alabama in scoring and rebounding his Jr and Sr years. He was a more skilled college player than Hall.[/quote] I never said Hall is a more skilled player, but he’s definitely a much better rebounder than Green was. Green led the team in rebounding because we were a horrific rebou...

[quote]I mean i guess stats are stats but i hate when you guys bring up stats as if it makes something someone said wrong. Just like guys argued me Jr. was as good as Coleman because their stats were similar.[/quote] I’ll agree with you on Coleman, because his superior skill-set was visual. It wa...

[quote]Im not surprised at all donta isnt a good rebounder. Thats the most important thing for a big imo.[/quote] 8.8 RPG in 26 mpg is pretty good. Donta Hall lacks physicality, but he has some of the best hands I’ve seen from a Center coming from Alabama. He probably won’t get drafted, but would...

[quote]Well, firstly, I have to think that $300K is bull shite. I have no doubt players are getting paid, but that amount just doesn't seem realistic. But, if they're getting paid those kinds of sums, or anything remotely close, then everybody is doing it. [/quote] It was the deal Wade had for Naz ...

If it were based on strictly where he wants to play, I think we would’ve closed on him a long time ago. As recent as last year he openly cheered on our basketball team. Two seasons ago, I supplied him with an illegal link to watch one of our games against a nobody because he was dying to watch the g...
