    Although, there doesn't appear to be much chance, Liam Roberts, MN, looks like just what we need.

A pet peeve is the idea that the decision to move on from Dino was a mistake. It was not. The program was headed in the wrong direction. Wellman ruined the program with his two pathetic hires after Dino, but had Dino continued at WF, the program would've been over-matched at the ACC level (again, not saying WF would've been as bad, but WF basketball was not going anywhere with Dino running the program).
    100%

    Just a hope. I doubt he leaves the Midwest, but a 7' guy who led the B10 in blocks and averaged double digit scoring would be a dream come true. But it may be a dream.

    But you never know unless you ask.

    Is Iowa/Minnesota really considered the Midwest even though it is more on the eastern side of the US?

    I've always considered them Midwest. MN may be the northern border. But Iowa is right in the middle of the country.

    Today?

    It's one of 2 guys most likely. The 2 guys have been discussed thoroughly on Les' board.

    I'd be surprised if it isn't one of those 2. I'm happy with either, as they'd both be a talent upgrade, provide some length and can stretch the floor.

    I'd be shocked. I might consider buying a couple lottery tix and going to the track if it happens.

    Liam just put his name in portal what, yesterday?

    I imagine it's one of the 5 guys that were just written about on Les' board. Specifically one of the two who we have been feeling good about for a week or so.

    Good post. Never thought at the time that we'd look back on the 90s-early 00s period as a hay day to which we've been unable to return.

    Will this next commitment be a splish, a sploosh, or a splash?

    I'm going with Splash based on the vibes I'm hearing.

  15. #1135
    Splash to me if the additional info. is correct. Really like a dog playing for us.

    With the most recent post from Les, I'm somewhere in between a sploosh and a splash. I had committed to splash based on another post

  17. #1137
    Wow never mind... It's neither of the two that I thought it would be

  18. #1138
    I wonder if we still have a chance at armon Franklin?

    I was thinking sploosh was better than splash but I'm coming from the Archer perspective.
