Under the heading "Boy have things changed," me and my roommate once did a Z to A pub crawl -- starting at Zorba's and ending at Alley Cat. There were only two letters we couldn't find places for -- X and Q -- so we cheated and had a Dos Equis in the La Quintana Motel parking lot to cover both.

OK, back to recruiting.

With a potential logjam of wings (already have Tevian, Alan, Kipper) to play the 3 and 4 spots next year, and if the staff wants to add two more wings like some have said here, that would make 5 players fighting for playing time at two spots. I don't know why two more players, Archie and someone else similar, would join. I don't know how the staff will sell playing time.
If someone like Patterson or K. Walker joined who might be considered a one and done, that could further deter Archie. Unless he is fine with a "sit-out" type of year.
On the other hand, if Archie jumps to take a spot, might that discourage others such as Patterson, Walker, or even Brown?

This board is truly an amazing group. In about a week we have gone from complete despair with no hope for the program to a position where we may need to decide which two Five Star wings we will have to turn down. All this with a tour of every sleezy college bar in the Midwest thrown in too.

So did Kenny Battle since he was in DeKalb and not Macomb.
I was in Macomb, I went to WIU. A bar there was called the Ritz, it had The Wall and you got a T-shirt......It was the same time Battle was with IL.....I never said he went to WIU. Geez 1st post in forever and I get incorrectly , corrected. Hail Chief. Back to recruiting.....
