I’d give my right nut for Chris Brandt to have some eligibility left.

a few of the major beat guys who are much closer to Steven and Bruce than they were Harsten or Allen Greenie said a week Ago that a "major roster overhaul" was in the works. But I think the rub with Westry is that he totally blindsided Bruce with the portal move. From what they are saying, Bruce found out like our own folks did - via the portal site.

Well dang, what a bozo move. Sounds like a character issue...

This is Indicative of why I have not lost faith in you. No matter the shit I see talked about you in the VIP places on the internet, I continue to be a supporter.

Sure, you get on my nerves sometimes but still.

I'll take what I can get. Thank you.

True but at the end of the day, ZERO current production was lost in these moves. ZERO. Only potential production which we will never really know. Maybe Westry will 100% come back from his injury elsewhere and Traroe will find a place where the light will come on.
Agree.


Point in case is Houston native Jaedon LeDee, 4 time all-state in high school


Signed with Ohio State 2018-19 averaged 3.0 and 1.7.


Transferred to TCU as a So., 2.7/2.9
Jr. season 5.8/3.9


Sat out 2021-22.


Transferred to San Deigo St.
Averages 7.4/5.2 and now in the final four against FAU.


He's a good team oriented player but the numbers aren't eye popping... neither are his other stats, assists, blocks etc.


[size=78%]Have a prop bet parlay that LeDee gets over 5.5 rebounds in a San Deigo St. win tomorrow evening.[/size]
 So I'm pulling for a fair weather twice transferred 23 year old to help get them to the championship game.


[size=78%]Bruce will find what we need.[/size]
We aren't regressing, just re-establishing. In the world of glass half full losing Westry and Traore could be seen as addition through subtraction.

True, but I really wanted to see what a healthy Westry could do.

I’m with you. Until he got hurt, he was going to start at one of the guard spots. I think it will be his loss more than ours when all said and done, especially when he is sitting at home watching Auburn win a championship with a dude that Bruce replaced him with.

Wen declares for the draft.

Wish him luck but it’s hilarious that he thinks he’s ready to be a guard in the nba.

Should have roughly the same impact as me declaring for the NBA draft. 

Then again I didn’t think that mushroom head from Alabama would ever play but he supposedly does.

I do not recall this, at all. Of course, with my memory issues, that’s par for the course.

In what round were you selected?

Big portal pickup over the weekend:

Denver Jones out of FIU will join Holloway and Donaldson in the back court.  I'm tingly.

The 6-foot-4 Jones is a dynamic scorer who averaged 20.1 points per game for the Panthers last season while shooting 47.8 percent overall and 37.1 percent from 3-point range. He also shot 84.5 percent from the free-throw line as a sophomore for FIU. He was one of just 26 players in the country to average at least 20 points per game last season and one of just 19 guards to do so.

If we had him last season, we dance a little longer.
Now we need to pick up another guard and two bigs.
I think I heard rumblings that Cardwell is out. I love the kid's energy and love for AU, but his floor game is lacking. Not to the point of disliking him, but it would be nice to get a few more solid minutes and more scoring in that role.

Labaron Philon decommits from the War Eagles.  Damn!!!

I'm losing count.  W Green declares.  Joan Eye declares.  JWill declares.  Westry gone.  Traore gone. Did Flanigan leave?  Who else? Zep out of eligibility.

Some may come back.  Some won't.  It's getting really hard to get invested anymore.  As I was texting with GH and GF earlier, college sports have quickly become nothing more than free agency with no rules or limits.  Who knows what we'll look like next year?  Will any of the same guys even be on the team?
