    College Bball Thread

    I've been asking that multiple times in the last few weeks. TJD hasn't appeared in any mock drafts that I've seen, yet so many of our fans were convinced he'd be gone this spring, and the idea of him being here as a junior is dismissed as unrealistic. Garza from Iowa is another example. Somebody on another board said he should leave this year because his stock will never be higher. I pointed out he isn't projected to be drafted, so he really doesn't have any "stock." (that's another word that I'm seeing a lot, in addition to "potential") It used to be that guys only left if they were lottery picks. Then it became first round, then it became appearing anywhere in the draft, now guys are being mentioned when they aren't likely to be drafted at all "because their stock will never get higher." I hate what it's done to basketball, and it makes it harder to enjoy the success our players achieve, because there's a perpetual fear that we'll lose someone and be scrambling to fill the void.
  2. We might be on to something with these Coronavirus virtual tours...wouldn't it be awesome if we could look back years from now and feel that this event inadvertently jump-started our program again?
  3. Must have steered him away from the drop ceilings.

    A Transfer Coming?

    Considering we have a system that supposedly takes 3 years to learn, I doubt we'd get much from someone who's more worried about his hair.

    A Transfer Coming?

    **Saw this posted elsewhere** "The past 4 months without sports have sucked!" "It's been 19 days." "......"

    Early BIG Projections (2020-21)

    If we could dig up the preseason predictions from the fall of 2017, I'd be willing to bet most people expected a lot more than 16-15 with no postseason and a slew of embarrassing losses. That season was a failure.

    Good, hope those guys don't come back. I have no idea what effects the Coronavirus will cause in regards to roster turnover around the country, but the last thing I want to see is UK bringing everyone back and having another super-team like they've done multiple times now.

    I remember when some of our fans used to criticize him and say he underachieved every year. He ended up being the winningest coach in their program's history. We might have been able to hire him back in 2006 if our administration hadn't been hell-bent on keeping minorities happy.

    Coronavirus and Its Impact

    The right loves to act like they're intellectually superior, but some of the stupidest people I know vote Republican every year. When I was growing up, my dad was denied a promotion because his boss thought he was a Democrat. The job went to a less qualified individual from outside the county who was a registered Republican. It wasn't funny at the time, but it's hilarious in hindsight, because my dad grew up in a family that was very conservative.

    I prefer the GIF from the Purdue game where he's glaring at that Purdue dude walking backwards down the court. 1) because it's hilarious, and 2) the graphic shows us beating the snot out of Purdue, and we never see that anymore.

    Gas is down to $1.43 where I live. Never seen it this low before.

    Apparently the Ivy League is denying spring senior athletes an extra year in spite of the NCAA's ruling. They were the first ones to cancel spring sports. What a bunch of nerds.

    Prayer Thread

    The one I had to let go of this week was bottle-fed too. My parents got him and his sister as one-week old kittens who had to be bottle-fed every 2 hours. We had been fostering a few others at the time, and initially the plan was to care for them until they were old enough to eat regular food, then put them up for adoption with the others. But my parents said that getting up every 2 hours at night to feed them with a bottle was just like having kids again, and we decided to keep them. Both of them weighed less than a pound when we got them. The guy I just lost weighed as much as 17 pounds in the prime of his life. He died almost on the same date as his sister, just 9 years later, and just like his sister, he was going senile.

    I had never heard of it until now. It's located in Stephenville, Texas and has been part of the Texas A&M system since 1917.
