Div III to Div I is like going from HS JV to Varsity. Feehan will suffocate from MVC-like "D" during the HEAT of the season. The Loyola game featured was the Ramblers 2nd of the season w/ Iowa State transfer G Clayton Custer. Also, look @ his assists during these 3 games and how he'll contribute if his shots aren't falling.



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 years of evaluating talent of which you have none.

It would be a great move. Since Shea would be on the team for only this season that still leaves us with two scholarships for this fall.

I believe if he does commit that still leaves two scholarships open for this season - hopefully for Silva and Barrick Jeanlouis. If we sign the latter two I will absolutely do flips.

I would assume that Lerch would have scoffed at Marshall University when they gave Intramural (yes I said Intramural) player Jon Elmore a scholarship. Elmore led the Thundering Herd last year in scoring at 22.8 PPG and helped beat a team called the Shockers in the NCAA’s.

Am I saying Feehan will produce like that - Not at all. Just asking you be open to non traditional paths to how players arrive on a roster.

Feehan while at Eureka was a scorer and there is no reason to believe he will lose his shooting touch - even if he is just an extra ball handler who knocks down his FT’s I will welcome him if he chooses UE.

As far as roster management it is a wise choice that gives depth for this season and likely helps with practices.

Wasn’t this all on the first page of this thread? Yes.
Did any one need to see it again? No .

Every one knows what you think.

I’ll leave it at that.

Taking a chance on this kid with a 1 year commitment is a yes for me.

He has the ability to make really difficult shots, I'll take him on a one year flier. What do we really have to lose? That scholarship, don't wanna speculate, but is lined up for Tristen Newton. So this is a low risk, potential high reward in my eyes. I'd gladly take Shea.

Great! You just proved that he is a shooter willing to pull the trigger instead of pass. A terrible recruit for Marty's system but great in McCarty's system of shooting earlier in the shot clock. I'm fully on board now.

To me this a no-brainer. He's a 1-year player who can hopefully help UE be at least competitive this year, which to me is best case for 2018-2019. He doesn't tie up a scholarship for next year and I doubt seriously that we are going to fill all those we do have open, given that it's so late in the signing period.

Let's hope he signs. At some point you just need bodies to practice, although I think he will see plenty of floor time.

He had an unofficial visit to Drake yesterday. No immediate offer by Drake and not much chatter on Drake Nation about him. He has an official visit to Manhattan out of the MEAC this weekend.

I see that you became a "fan" in '89? The term readily applied to people like you is "rookie." The fact is, you don't know DIDDLY re: my ability to analyze talent. I provided statistical FACTS associated w/ the three (3) game on Feehan's "highlight video." Then a few of you throw in a mix of a million to one hogwash re: an I-M player @ Marshall.

Ya, Feehan MIGHT pan out for a year, but what are the odds? Is UE so hard up that they've gotta take such a gamble? Ever heard of a "preferred walk-on?"
