Re: Recruiting

Unless I have missed something, I don't believe there has been anything made public between UE and Akoy Agau other than the fact Walter recently started following him on Twitter, which means next to nothing. He also started following a hip hop artist, WBNA player, beach volleyball player, and Olymp...

Re: Recruiting

I think Agau likes the attention and the build up for his decision....I do think his Up Up and away are in regards to his college choice but could be wrong. But it is June 20th.... I am betting by the weekend Aces will know something about him or Holston. You may be right. But I'm not too sure I li...

Re: Which returning player scores more points?

I'm going to go out on a limb and say Marty Hill :o :o .We really didn't get to see a lot of Marty.But i believe he shoots the ball well and can knock down ths 3. The real question is,how many returning starters will play a lot of minutes.Reason is none of us has seen the new players play against o...

Re: Shea Feehan - 2018 Grad Transfer Candidate (6'0" PG)

I hope you enjoy your island, because nobody shares your thoughts on this player, I think what the coaches and most on this forum see is a few things. 1. He only has one year. 2. He is a shooter, never heard anybody say he was the next coming of John Stockton. 3.Our new coaching staff has several y...

Re: Shea Feehan - 2018 Grad Transfer Candidate (6'0" PG)

Watch the video, then examine the facts within the 3 games which are highlighted: 17 pts. v. Loyola (2nd game of season; notice - 2 assists): https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/bo ... la-il.html 24 pts. v. North Texas (season opener; notice - 0 assists): https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/bo .....

Re: Scheduling

I think 16-15 is acceptable, maybe 17 home games some years. If you go more than that, you end up with too many SWAC schools or Midway or Longwood. I've never understood why some would like to see fewer home games for the same season ticket price. But I do realize that it would make sense to a dist...

Re: Scheduling

This is certainly the type of schedule we have been begging for. A couple of strong games, mixed in with solid, regional programs. At this point, I agree, it wouldn't hurt to add a smaller program or two. We still need to get a few home games. I think 16-15 is acceptable, maybe 17 home games some y...

Re: Shea Feehan - 2018 Grad Transfer Candidate (6'0" PG)

...and you don't think that there are better "battle tested" Div. I GRADUATE transfers on the market? I get it that UE doesn't offer many grad programs and that that is a limitation. But aren't you just blowing smoke? I doubt that you've spent a second researching what grad degrees are on...

Re: Recruiting

It has occurred to me that we didn’t need to hire Coach McCarty or any of his assistants. We have more than enough here on this forum that know more about coaching, more about player personnel and more about recruiting than anyone on staff. Give it a rest and let them do their job. What would you s...

Re: Recruiting

Coach McCarty inherited 6 players he didn't recruit for his system, lost the two best returning players, apparently lost the two November signees and entered the recruiting game a year later than every MVC team that hasn't had a recent coaching change AND, in spite of all of that, he is expected to ...
