  1. You just never know. This seems just like the Elijah Wood situation. I think if you have a guy who knows he wont see time for the first 2 years and is ok with it, it can work. Quaran sounds like he had some talent but blew out his knee and then things went sideways. I tend to agree with you, and these things dont seem to work often--- But no harm/no foul in trying him out I guess(other than wasting a Scholarship)
  2. I would assume we are done now. Hold onto that other scholarship for something special. Quaran seems like Elijah Wood. He is apparently friends with the Wilcher brothers.
  3. I think its a valid concern seeing that we have struggled to get the ball to wide open guys for easy looks. That also being said, some of his tape shows he seems to have a bit of a "I dont care who is guarding me, ill shoot" and he sort of makes his own shot and has a pretty quick release. Dont know if that is against guys more his size or how is speed will match up. I just like the idea that he seems willing to sort of go "full steph curry" and shoot wherever.
  4. Ahhh gotcha. I guess that makes more sense. If Edwards hadnt reclassified and we had just added him as a freshman, I think I heard we would have had a top 10 class. That is bonkers.
  5. Sort of interesting that they include Edwards and Wilcher in the recruiting class when they were transfers. I get they are just using their stars to explain fi they were new recruits(and Edwards basically is since he re-classified and joined in Jan with DePaul). That being said, in terms of excitement, I really want to see what Tominga can do. I get he is smaller and questions about other aspects but some of his tape gets me excited that he will shoot from anywhere, has a quick release and seems comfortable shooting in weird spots. McGowens is the prize of
  6. Dosunmu is gone. Gophers are losing Marcus Carr(most likely), and also lost Gabe Kalscheur and Liam Robbins. I believe Brandon Johnson might leave as well. They will be in a similar boat to where we were two years ago. Very few returning players and just a hodge podge. I dont see the Gophers being very good. In terms of returning and adding new talent, we have to be near the top. Still not sure if we can get it all together but it could be a perfect storm. Lets say we have this years team going into last years B1G, we might still struggle. But a weaker B1G
  7. I agree. We brought in good talent for last season but no one had played together. As you stated, we now can have a few guys learning the offense while everyone else is just improving. It will help to allow some really talented guys the ability to assimilate slower if need be. That being said, guys like Bryce Mcgowens, CJ Wilcher, Keon Edwards should be key contributors early and then guys like Keisei Tominaga, Wilhelm Breidenbach can take time to warm into the system. Its very exciting. I am hoping for a top 8 finish but if the team grows as they can and fi
  8. I think they will have additional spots because still some rumors on Stevenson and Thor. Most think Stevenson is gone and Thor is weighing his options. My guess is we still add one more transfer and then keep our eyes/ears open but as you said push those to future years. This recruiting class is probably the best we have ever had. The talent is there. Bringing back guys who have played together is huge as well. Now I am curious to see how it all comes together.
  9. slapping American groins>slapping European groins
  10. Correct. The taser is usually on the non dominate side but facing in a way that you reach across your body to access it. It is a completely different movement. This Officer had 26 years of experience. There is no excuse to her using the wrong one.
  11. This is just awful. I feel for the Wright family and that mistake by the office is unacceptable. My dad teaches police in this area for a living. I havent chatted with him, but there is a chance he trained this officer or for sure knew her(he worked in a neighboring town). High stress is part of the job and not knowing the difference between a gun and a taser is high incompetence. A man died because of it. Accident or not, she should be fired and probably face some sort of charges. My other concern is the act of force. So they pulled him over
  12. My guess is they think Nate is a better recruiter and better in-game coach. Curious how long term Doc will be here for or if this is sort of a pre-retirement deal.
  13. Great hire. I was hoping he would land on somewhere eventually.
  14. I dont know if I would call him good as much as unknown. He has size which is a good start but he strikes me as someone who we wont see a ton the first year or two and hopefully he can grow into someone who will help us. I assume he sees on average less than 5 minutes a game next year
  15. I think the might view Wilheim as more of a Lat type. Probably not someone who can play a ton at the 4 until they put muscle on. I dont know if it will be quite as lean as Lat but he will need to muscle up a bit to even be a consistent 4 in B1G play.
