We need two more recruits--1 for Ben's departure and 2 for a transfer. Someone, I don't know who will move elsewhere.

Not concerned. If he'd rather play for a conference-hopping, coach is retiring soon, Penn State junior (Asst Coach sex scandals) - let him. Obviously either wanted something close to home or had some boosters make him aware of how he'd benefit.

I never really thought Tyler would want to play way out here in the wild west.

We may think of Kansas being in the middle of the country... but visit the east coast and ask somebody there where Kansas is.

As much as I wanted Tyler, Jo Jo signing was really the more important. With Perry, Wesley, Zach, Jamari, Landen and Jo Jo we're in pretty good shape on the front line.

This does, however, open the door for a power OAD [ Julius...come on down!!!]

In lieu of the recent conflict in Israel / Gaza, I vote referring to Bill Selfs' defense as the "iron dome".........

Currently we are 70% effective.

With Selden coming another Sf isn't coming along, but lets face it, we are stacked. This years team will get better as the season progresses and next years's additions will make us scary. I still am curious about Connor playing the PG spot for us. At this moment I'm not sold on Tharpe taking over so I hope it's an open completion next year, but we've got a scary team being built.

Hate to be the grammar police but lolololol. I don't even know what to say...

We lost a game already this year too. We need to fire Bill Self.

He fooled me. The way his comments were written up I thought he was headed for Villanova for sure.

Roberson threw everyone a curve with Syrexcuse. Maybe the former Syrexcuse assistant coach being cleared on accusations about inappropriate sexual conduct with boys freed Roberson up to a deep preference for the color orange?

Has anyone noticed whether or not Boeheim has commented on the the issue with the former assistant coach? Is he being reinstated?

We are doomed.

Self can't recruit!!!

Even if we don't land anyone else, next year's class is already loaded. Anyone else who signs at this point is just gravy. Good luck at Syracuse, Roberson.

Wasn't Wayne Seldon supposed to sign in a ceremony today?

Oh well, lets full court rush for Julius!
