    Why do you consider Osifo a fiasco?

    would the staff have gotten the benefit of the doubt if the scholly was “saved for 2022 recruit or mid year transfer”?

    Yeah, I'm okay with it. There will be times when you need some emergency length on the floor. Colin occasionally has to sit with fouls and Jitoboh picks up a foul a minute.

    I think they are all one year deals.

    Correct, but as a coach you don't want a rep for running lots of kids off.

    I smell 40 and...

    Aw heck, even I can't muster that one, even in jest. Good luck and welcome aboard.

    I hope he can provide some minutes off the bench. I know nothing about him, but hard to imagine that this is the best big we could get. :emoji_thinking:

    The unfortunate news is we signed a JUCO project (fewer years left). The worse news is...yes, this is the best we could do under these conditions. Mike is down two runs in the bottom of the ninth against a damn good pitcher on the mound.

    Maybe he’ll pull off a Kirk Gibson.

    I thought there was talk that he’d have 4 years of eligibility?

    I just presume that if he was JUCO he has already spent 2 years there.

    You know what they say about presuming, you make a pre...um, I will get back to you about what it means to presume.

    Does this guarantee Keyontae is not coming back?

    I see no reason this should impact his return at all. It was an extra scholarship not counting his.

    Go watch his videos, kid has skills, only issue I have is the weight. But really good ball handler, has a nice shot and plays very good defense. Unlike the JUCO who we took last year.

    Let's not pretend that we don't get good players with white

    We needed some depth off the bench. Doesn't sound much different than Osifo. Who I thought gave us some good minutes here and there. I'm glad we're utilizing all the scholarship slots.
