Re: No more sitting a year for transfers. Let college free agency begin.

Here's the way it all begins. July will be WILD from coast-to-coast! "For this year, athletes in all sports will be required to notify their schools about their intent to transfer by July 1. The council also voted to let the current dead period in recruiting in all sports expire June 1. A ban on in-...

Re: Spier out at WCU

Yeah, this will be an interesting hire. Western's new AD, Alex Gary, logged three years as a baseball player for the purple kitties before transferring as a senior and obtaining his first degree from VCU. I'm not certain what that says about Western's academics at that time, his expressed love for W...

Re: Spier out at Western

This should be the first step in disbanding that program for good. Their administration isn’t committed to fielding a winner, they only want to showcase their band. Just cut it out altogether. They may be at the crossroads of some sobering decisions. They have always operated their football program...

Re: Justin Forrest Returning

Get A BIG man!!! Getting a post guy who can walk right in, step on the court and be an impact guy from the start is a tough "get." Not impossible, but tough. The portal is still out there; and the JuCo national tourney is a mere two weeks away. Hope our staff is well-represented there. The nation's...

Re: Should be new Yosef/App logo

Call me a traditions guy. I was one of a group of five guys who led the fight to put the muzzle-loading *Kentucky or Tennessee* rifle back in Yosef's hands in the Bork/Laney-to-Peacock/Cobb transition.

Re: 21-22 Roster Breakdown & Wishlist

Having Capel and Fox over the years hurt what we saw on the court, and really made all other things impossible to improve. Now that we have a much better fit at coach, it's time to take care of the things off of the court. There needs to be better promotion of the team to students, locals, as well ...

Re: Transfer Portal

Current number of players in Transfer Portal --- 935 Just a wild guess. Maybe 55% will find a new D-I roster. Maybe 25% will have to go down to D-II or JuCo. Maybe 5%, after considering their options, will decide to get off the portal bus and stay where they are (Methinks this option is available t...

Re: Kerns Extended

Maybe this will keep a couple of the guys on here from jumping off the roof :>) Although extending a contract has never prevented a coach from leaving I am most interested in the buyout language in this extension.

Re: NCAA-T: Norfolk State (Thursday 3/18)

A brief addendum to the "DraftKings" summary... Looking at Norfolk's roster, they sport some really, really big guys topping out at 6-10, 250. As a team, they're quite a bit bigger than the Apps. They won't present with a four-guard attack--unless they're 6-6 guards. Four or five of their players ar...
