Born in Salem, Ohio, raised for most of my childhood in a tiny blip called Rogers. Most famous for the Rogers Sale. It has national recognition for some reason. When I was 11 we moved to the East Liverpool area and I've lived here ever since. As for my family lineage. My cousin traced our roots to find out that we have an ancestor that signed the declaration of independence. She did so to qualify for a sizeable scholarship for college. I don't remember the name but I remember finding that out. So apparently my family has been in America for awhile now.
That 50/50 turned 100% real quick. Tyjon Lindsey c'mon down.
1. If Martell is as competitive as Birm has said, then him passing up a competition to visit speaks volumes.
2. Glad to see Wilson is coming for a visit. Birm is his family coming with him?
3. Yes please for Kris Wilkes.
With the article the other day talking about a possible busy commitment summer, how many do you see happening this summer? And, if it doesn't betray any confidences, who do you think will?
Good interview. It looks like the coaches jumped in just in time. It doesn't sound like he has a true leader and that's contrary to most reports that I've seen.

We have a proven starter and Heisman contender if he doesn't go to the NFL and he's backed up by a guy Meyer says is the best he's ever recruited. On top of that we have a 4 star of our own in his class committed that's a gym rat.
I'm so sorry for your loss. It's never easy losing a family member. Prayers for you and your family.
Have them stop watching James Harden's instructional videos on playing defense.
I hope this is the awakening of Harris and Giddens. If they can carry this over into next year and get Lyle and Loving to give any effort on defense, this could be a good team next year. They're not quitting I'll give them that.
Should they sit out the 1st half of games because they don't play defense or box out ever. Lyle has been beaten back for fast break layups 6 or 7 times.
D'angelo Russell called it. They have no work ethic and it shows. My coaches used to drill into us "how you practice is how you'll play".
I live about a mile off of route 7 towards Lisbon.
That's why I said if he has those ties. The problem is the last time we had this much New Jersey presence in our area it was to secure a major drug line. This area has enough of a drug problem without assistance. I meant if he has ties to this ring.

Even with those guys this team has no hustle, no drive and no heart.
This is the worst team in the Matta era
I understand this team is young but at this point youth and inexperience are not excuses for laziness on defense and not boxing out. The last 3 years have been the same. Pass the ball around the perimeter and pray a shot opens up or the defense messes up and leaves someone wide open. The lack of a quality inside presence and development is the downfall of this offense and that's on the coaching staff. You could have Diebler, Reddick, Curry and any other great shooter out there but without the fear of a post presence they won't get a open shot. They've recruited good talent but it's not developing the way it used to.
WOW!!! If he was on NCAA Football he would have 99 speed and 99 acceleration. I hope he goes to the opening. I want to see his official 40 time.
Do you think we will pursue Tate Martell? Would we accept Keyshawn Johnson Jr to get Darnay Holmes?
This is pathetic. This late in the year being young is not a legitimate excuse anymore. This is a complete lack of fire/effort on defense. When you shoot 56% from the floor and score 37 in the 1st half, you should be winning by double digits not losing by double digits. The body language walking off the court wasn't good either. On the bright side Lyle is becoming a true game changer. If not for him this is a 20+ point deficit.
I was surprised in the first half how the calls were going since Statitore and Valentine are officiating but now they're showing their colors.
This feels like the home game with Maryland. Hanging in at the half but could go either way. I hope it doesn't end the same way.
No I'm not joking. No "expert " has us in right now. It would take something drastic to change that. Ask yourself this. Would you take 20-14 or 21-13 team with 1 top 100 win into the tourney? I think not. There's too many good mid major schools sitting there with better resumes.
