    FBI College Basketball Corruption Investigation

    That's a good answer. I didn't pay much attention to the final on Evan's charges, but the initial bit of taking bribes to steer players to an agent seems a lot different than working with shoe companies to pay players to come to your school. In the former, that doesn't seem like something you...

    With regards to Belgium forward Benjamin Bosmans-Verdonk Piper was on ESPN Radio show Monday (summary as I recall): ...Benjamin was looking into coming to US for Prep school - someone Chin knew at a prep school told Chin he should check him out, he was pretty good. Between Chin and Antigua they...

    I would propose the important question is how the future looks, particularly to Josh Whitman. At the end of the year, if we have shown enough to believe the direction is up and it looks like we can get to a reasonable ceiling then you hold pat, if you believe the direction is down you need to...

    I understand what your saying and don't disagree with the defensive choice, my question was if the original poster really thought it would make the offense better...so if it really is the case the offensive efficiency gets better, wouldn't someone have figured this out and set the offense up...

    You seem to be suggesting that offenses will be better because we move the 3pt out or am I missing something? If that were the case, wouldn't teams have figured that out already and just be doing that anyway.

    Kevin Warren named commissioner of the Big Ten Conference

    This is missing the point...if you want to argue that every college is a meaningless entity in NYC that is fair, but here is a survey showing as Rutgers #1 in NYC of all colleges...but if you want to play in NYC this suggests Rutgers was the best play...& if you are truly arguing they are...

    Kevin Warren named commissioner of the Big Ten Conference

    I think there are 2 sides to this coin, some speculation that the market has less value as cords get cut, while at the same time there is one more mouth to feed with all the conference money taken in, so far it is working, but I'm just barely smart enough to know I'm not smart enough to know...

    I think on yesterday's Werner show he also commented on Peters, sounded like he thought Peters wanted to play for a Power 5 team & at this point if we pushed he was probably ours to be had, but certainly added a caveat that nothing in recruiting was certain.

    Kevin Warren named commissioner of the Big Ten Conference

    fyi...since we are talking about Delaney & new commish, I went to see if any update was out for next year's Big payout, didn't find it, but did see where they reported income up 48% from last year. According to the article works out to about 54 million/team for the long term members (think last...

    Total guess, but I see he is 6'7", one article calls him big man, comment he had added 3 pt range, ...I bet someone in his ear says he needs to play more wing to have a shot at the NBA & Rutger's needs him as more of a big.

    You win some, you lose some. But reflecting on a hindsight win as insight that Miller has been a done deal for awhile doesn't cut it. I appreciate that you think Miller is a lock, but I'm not buying, too much time left, too much history to make that call today.

    Think Werner said something in yesterday's show. But not much new as I recall, appears to be an academic hurdle, but sounds like they haven't given up on getting him here.

    Ok, so I don't believe it. I'm sure Keady put in a good word for Weber, but no way did Keady call the shots, that's just not the way it works. Maybe Keady convinced Guenther that Weber was his man, but Guenther has to own that hire.

    I honestly haven't looked at enough of Fink or Stevens to have a good opinion of my own, but seems like most think Stevens would beat out Fink, but what matters is what Stevens thinks. If Fink comes, I hope Robinson, Williams, and Taylor all beat him out, certainly hope at least one of them...

    The open scholarships makes me wonder if we would take Fink regardless, but rather we told him we would still take Stevens as well, so he is waiting to see what else happens. With 2 years left, it puts Fink in an already big junior class, but that seems manageable and having a veteran QB on the...

    I think this is a fair question, however before we get there, I think the first question we need to answer is if we can even find enough minutes at the 5 that Giorgi even gets the opportunity to play significant minutes at the 4. Between conditioning, general size, & fouls I don't think it is a...

    Mostly just semantics, but for improvement I would probably put Malcom (& Kendrick) in a different category...Malcolm seemed to improve through his freshman year & I think most saw enough by the end of his freshman year that we were comfortable he was going to be a team leader going into his...
