One thing I’ll say about McCormack - -he is a big boy. 6’9 - - -290. Like 247 said in the article about how we are trending for him , we pair him with De -Sousa that’s a pretty physical dual , they talk about how bout like to mix it up, not a bad thing - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY
I read the article this morning in the LJW. - bummer, really don’t want to think of such a thing , but hey it’s always a possible reality. I mean IF and WHEN it does happen it is going to be a huge bummer , but something we will have to face sometime no matter when.
It wouldn’t shock me totally if he didn’t re new his contract. he will be right at 60 right? Like others have said this recruiting business has to be so dam stressful, got to just enjoy him why we have him , hopefully he can bring us another title before that time comes.
So with all that being said - -IF this does happen , then where do we turn? - I mean I realize we are not going have any trouble I’m sure for a lack of names of people wanting to come here - BUT where do we look? - - Do we look at guys with former connections? - Turg? - - Danny ? who would be some of your suggestions - if this has to be? - - -how about what was his name? - -Brad Stevans? bring him back to College? – ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY
Each school could, at the beginning of the academic year, list out a set of schools (limited in number - maybe 5-10) that players could not transfer to without having to sit out a year. That would be part of the scholarship “contract” for that year. When you renew the following year, same thing. This way student athletes know going into the academic year what places they can or can’t transfer to, schools have some say over things and everything is laid out prior to the start of the year. Student athlete signs, everything is settled. If the student decides to transfer, they already know what the restrictions are and can pick from a broad range of remaining schools.
For example, KU could always list K-State and Mizzou. Duke and UNC could always list each other, etc.
By limiting the number, schools would have to be specific about the restrictions, rather than setting really broad restrictions that offer no choice at all.
@BShark Hmmm… so hard to remember. Had the National HS POY, another fresh who was #1 in his class acc to at least 1 recruiting eval site, another who was #7, and yet another who was #11, PLUS a returning presumptive leading candidate for college POY, and yet managed to lose in the round of 32…
Hmmm… so hard… must be getting old… Wait! Could it have been last year?
@bmensch1 KU still wouldn’t play the overall #4 in the Elite 8 if KU gets a 1 seed because the overall 4 seed would be a 1 seed in a different region and you can’t have two 1 seeds play each other prior to the Final Four.
It’s definitely a big loss IMO going forward. With only 3 scholarship players in the front court Bragg would’ve been a good player to have this season. I personally think he will do good sitting out a year and changing his scenery. I think he has a decent chance of playing in the NBA.
Li Ning is endorsed by Dwyane Wade and also by Evan Turner and Dorrel Wright. Anta Sports, the outfit I mentioned on my original post (2nd from the top) had Keving Garnett and Klay Thompson wearing its shoes.Peak Sports has Tony Parker and George Hill, who both have signature shoes; Carl Landry is also signed with Peak.
The Chinese shoe-cos are already here and it is a matter of time before they become big players. Like most Chinese products, the quality is inferior but you can always buy 3 or 4 for the price of a brand name item.
I buy a lot of electronics from China and a local product that would cost me $100, I can buy the same generic Chinese product for $15 including expedited shipping from China; a no brainer really.
I had to buy a sensor for the significant other’s Mercedes Benz and I called one of the on-line auto part retailers. He asked, do you want the brand name part or the generic version? I asked what is the difference? He said they are the same product made in the same factory in China, one is labeled with a brand name the other is not, the brand name is $150 the generics is $29…guess which one I got…
By now, most of the brand name shoes are probably made in China and it is just a matter of time before we are given the same choice, brand name or the same shoe with a generic/Chinese brand for a fourth of the cost.
It is impossible to compete with China in manufacturing even when American workers are twice as productive but Chinese workers hourly rates are one tenth of its American counterparts, work 12 hour days and do not have unions or labor issues.
Tyler Self is undergoing plastic surgery and a shin extension procedure in a San Antonio hospital and will come back as a 6-10 walk-on named Roy Lobbs. His full legend has not been agreed upon yet. But it is believed that a KU coed will be asked to wear a huge white hat to home games and a spot light will illuminate her whenever he goes in the game.
The link @approxinfinity supplied below will access you to a couple of posts of mine on the subject of the Civil War of 1861-1865. Suffice it to say that I have gone from a very conventional, traditional, orthodox, catholic view of the war based on my public school education and informing by Shelby Foote and Ken Burns, to a rather different view of it after seven years of my own digging into that era. The war was much less about slavery, than I had originally been lead to think, much more important in grand strategy and global trade than I had any inkling in the beginning, and had many more far reaching dimensions and effect than I had thought originally. I am pretty confident that a final, enduring version of the history of the US Civil War will be written some time this century and it will be much more like the version I outlined in the other post. It was a large war, and when combined with the European Great Power Invasion of Mexico, as it should always have been, but never has been, it was a war of much greater global significance than most have grasped in the past.
Not to mention if you can read body language and see how recruits use snapchat to communicate to their friends and followers you get a better picture of where they might go? More so than reading any 247 sports bs or other boards. I get a lot of info from watching snapchat on recruits. I don’t post a lot but I do have a wealth of knowledge from talking with guys and watching them on snapchat! If there are other snapchat users that follow KU let me know?
