Re: Demontay Dixon Updates?

I trust your instincts, wildbill. If Peace had a decent chance of being eligible, he would have been on the European trip. Walt says he likes his team, and I believe him. Henderson will prove to be a big-time steal, and KJ, Hall, and DeAndre give us a good front line. If Hall can find his rebounding...

Re: Demontay Dixon Updates?

Agree, and timing and consistency are important in the way the media, fans, and recruits view a program. A point was made earlier about fans, in general, and especially fans on this blog; we have beaten the dead horse, but although we have asked questions about Peace and Demontay, the fact is that a...

Re: Demontay Dixon Updates?

10-4 on Pat and Chad. It is not up to media to "dig up" stories. That might have worked in 1971, but not today. The lack of enthusiasm coming from Carson Center is underwhelming..... A fan base that delivered the 15th best increase in attendance for last season, should be given consistent ...

Re: Assistant coaches

For an assistant coaching position, I agree. Seltzer seems to be a fit. Some regional ties, plus a record as a player at Wash. St. that was notable, to say the least. He does bring a little baggage from head coaching at Samford. Two losing seasons, which might be rebuilding at some places, but he al...

Re: Demontay Dixon Updates?

I don't want to overstate, but it is refreshing to know that someone else has the same sense about the communications thing that I do. It's almost seems as though someone is screening the flow of info out of the University, and especially the athletic department. This may very well have been the rea...

Re: Demontay Dixon Updates?

Information about what's happening with Peace and Dixon, the question as to if/when we anticipate hiring a veteran assistant coach, and, in fact most anything that's really happening at UE, just doesn't seem to be hitting the media. Other than the Twitter accounts, there was very little info about t...

Re: Parisian Select - Wednesday 10 am CST

It was fun to follow the team. Thankful for this venue, as well as twitter updates. Best ways to keep up with the team's progress thru the trip, not only game progress, but also to share some of the fun and the human side of the trip. I know that there were probably a few contributors, but whoever w...

Re: Parisian Select - Wednesday 10 am CST

What's with Sam? I appreciated the photo of his back to show he is still alive, but it's strange to hear nothing. Injury, in Walt's doghouse, tossed from the game in Belgium, what?

Re: Gembo Borgerhout (Belgium) - Monday 1 pm CST

Dixon appears to be a puzzle. Looks talented, but the Walters St. thing is not a positive. He played on a team that had a couple of gunners, so it's possible that, as a freshman, he got fewer looks and minutes than he anticipated. The other question is the eligibility. Supposedly he was an excellent...

Re: 2020 Kiyron Powell

Sampson is an excellent recruiter.

Unless Walter has a serious inside track, our chance of landing Mr. Powell are about 25%.
