Basketball Recruiting / Re: Filip Petrusev - 2018 F/C - offered
« Last post by moss2k on Today at 12:35:50 pm »
I hope we have some solid fall back options.. going head to head vs. the blue bloods in the sport is always a tough battle..
normally id give up on landing someone with these offers, but the fact he isn't from America and has a relationship with a coach and player the team keeps us in contention I think. Still a long shot though.


Anytime the blue bloods get involved..we are toast.


However, Ivo Simivic was hired specifically for his type of recruiting connection.
This is what we're paying him for...not x's & o's.
Time to deliver Ivo.

I agree on the recruiting part, but he has a solid resume. I sure hope he will be helping with the x's & o's.
Agreed. He has a pretty wide range of experience. He didn't have time on the Spurs Summer League team just b/c he can recruit Euros..

Riley was limited to what non-JUCO's he could transfer too. I believe I saw Charlotte and 2 FCS schools were not restricted. My guess is the real-world put things in perspective, he grew up, hit JUCO and then Memphis with something to prove. Good for the kid.

Simply put, we backed the wrong horse. Happens, and we're paying for it.

Exactly. Olsen had Greg here, and our stadium was built because of his boss. Kevin was as talented as they come out of high school, and with the Panther ties, it was almost a no brainer. Riley could have turned into the same type problematic person, but great for him for getting his life turned around.  I hate Kevin didn't work out, but hindsight is 20/20.

We offered Brice Williams, 2019 F (Hopewell) last night. Yes that is Henry Williams son.
Looks like Brice is up to 6'7" now.  I believe Henry was around 6'2".
Also his HS coach lists him as a Guard. So, probably a SF.

At the time, I thought signing Riley would've turned this thing around and I thought it was catastrophic when we did not.  I was obsessed with scouring the internet looking for info back when he made it clear he wanted to come here.  He may have been a risk to chemistry but who cares. If it didn't work, you move on just like we have with numerous other players.  Colossal mistake on the part of this staff. 


Funny thing is how we knee jerked in the other direction.


As soon as we passed on this talented yet troubled chemistry rattling alpha dog QB....we take in Olsen who was worse in all aspects and less on talent.


Almost comical how we were holier than thou with Riley and yet so welcoming to Olsen...especially considering how both turned out.  Safe to say we "pulled a Niner" making that decision.  Par for the course I guess.

This is exactly why I think there were major financial implications behind the Olsen thing

Yes last year after the Old Dominion pounding, the players pulled together and won a couple games.  I'm expecting a double digit point victory this weekend. 

Just checked.  ESPN has us as a 1 point underdog

A week ago, I could not wait to watch our first home game.  Now, I dread returning to another one.
