There we go Thad. I don't mind a lil bit of the Mayor's approach and land a few transfers here and there.
"I love the academics, the fans, my new teammates and the coaching staff," Thompson said. "It was the perfect fit."
Off topic, but I remember someone asking about Rod Smith and Jamal Marcus and where they've been... but apparently they're both dealing with some academic issues. Sorry if someone already said that and I can't remember where I saw the post of someone asking about them, but there's that just in case. I haven't really been able to get on here lately, so my apologies if it's already been stated.

A lil off topic, but was just looking at ESPN's final 100 they released and Tate got bumped up to a 5* giving us three players ranked as such by ESPN. If we can land Turner, this class would be pretty nasty as would our team next season.
2016 and 2017 may be our hardest schedules we've had in a while..
2016: @Oklahoma, @Wisky, @PSU, @MSU, @Maryland (may be more consistent by this year) then home games vs: tSUN, Neb, NW, Indy, Rut... also vs Tulsa and BG which are two teams who can surprise every now and then.
2017: @Indy, @UNC, @IA, @tsun, @Neb @Rut, then home games vs: Oklahoma, PSU, MSU, Maryland.
I'd suspect our SOS those years to be pretty good.
Well you don't really know how the SOS will work out until the end of the season. No one expected Cal to be god awful last year which killed our SOS... Va Tech looks to be our best OOC game, but they're replacing their QB and other key guys... should still have a stingy D though, but they could end up having a below standard season for them (7-5 range) which wouldn't exactly boost our SOS, but it should be better than anything we had last season.
Cris Carter shafted me wayyy back in the day when I tried to get his autograph after a game vs the lions, I think it was 97 I was probably in 4th grade. Ruined my life :( lol
I always hate when a great show ends. Barney Stinson will always be one of my favorite characters of all-time, kind of a crappy last season and ending but I figured him and Robin would end up together. However, no one really wants to marry a girl that you and one of your bro's are Eskimo Bro's with. I thought all of that was a little weird. They shouldn't have ever matched up Barney and Robin and just kept it a cat and mouse game with her and Ted, rather than that ending... but meh, still a great show.
That may be true, but we're going to need scoring from somewhere as we're losing our top 3 scorers from this past season.
I could see Russel average somewhere in the 12-15 ppg ballpark. We need scoring and he can definitely provide that as well as play back up PG to Scott. Assuming Williams keeps improving, if only steadily plus the addition of Lee down low, it should free up our shooters and other guards to start making plays and getting easier looks.
Kind of cool Florida has played all the teams... lost to both UConn (Wilbekin was back for this game but missed the final 3 mins with an ankle injury and they lost by a buzzer beater) and Wisky early on in the year when they had some players suspended (Wilbekin most notably), and of course beat UK the three times they played them but could have easily lost the last time. Should be an interesting final 4. I picked the Gators to win in my bracket, my final 4 is fudged though. I got 2/4 right.
Anthony Lee AKA Young Polo (his rap name)
Very nice, will give us a much needed low post scoring threat, as well as size... what's the lineup look like now?
C - Williams/ McDonald/Bell
PF - Lee/ KBD
SF - Thompson/ Loving/ Tate
SG - Russel/Williams
PG - Scott
Let's land these 2 then land Kirk at WR.
Not to be a dick or anything but "The former No. 1 recruit announced he would be returning for his junior season after a stellar sophomore campaign" -- it's not like he had a choice, he was a true soph. so he couldn't have entered the NFL.
Cedar Falls here.
I'm rooting for his son, but not his team. Living in Iowa, I hate them about as much as I hate tsun.
Great play from out PGs so far.. combined 8-12 shooting, 19 pts, 7 assists, 4 rebs, 3 steals
15-4 run to end the half, I'll take it.
Keep it going. Get to within 5 by half.
