Basketball Recruiting / Re: Filip Petrusev - 2018 F/C - offered
« Last post by ninerfan55 on Today at 05:28:53 pm »
i think if the coaching staff believed they had no chance with him at this point, they would not be recruiting him this hard.
I didn't mean we have no chance,  but every new offer makes it less likely.

I know, and I agree. it would be nice to see the kid post something on his twitter about mark price and company checking in to see him. maybe I am reading too much into an 18 year old's twitter account...that's recruiting I guess. I hope this kid realizes the opportunity he has if he comes to play for us. Start as a freshman, be the main guy as a sophomore. we will not recruit over him.

We will not or could not recruit over him? Because we always should be trying to get better players than we have now.

Playing at Charlotte is currently not an "opportunity". If he wants PT, then sure, he may be able to get a lot of that. But does he care about winning and the college post season success??

Knowing the assistant is our only in with this guy. We can't sell him anything else that the other schools couldn't sell 100x better.


hopefully the staff can convince him that with him, jd, white, etc., that we can win a lot.

Walking to Alumni Pavilion today two students behind me talking about last week. They both say they went to student tailgate village last week and went in for 1 quarter. I should have said I appreciate them coming. Hahahaha maybe they can put tailgate inside and they will stay the whole time.
One of them didn't know they lost last week.

Odds of a pick 6 again today?

Based on the last 3 games: 100%. But today: 33 1/3 %.

I really thought Qon Murphy would of committed here. He was always at games and seemed really interested. But with Robb, Mangum, and Bigelow committed and Petrusev being the guy the staff is wanting to fill the last spot, i dont see qon coming here. 2K was he not as interested as I thought or did the staff just stop pursuing him?


granted, i have only seen murphy play once but he did not impress me. i would rather have the guards that we got than him.

Prep Hoops N.C. Statewide 2018 Boys Basketball Rankings, top 40
.
.
.
16 Isiah Bigelow 6'6 W Ben L Smith HS Team Felton
.
.
26 Dravon Magnum 6'7 SF Person HS NC Red Storm


those rankings are bogus. both of our n.c. commits are better than newman, who, no offense to the kid, is highly overrated and will get lost in the shuffle at clemson. i have a feeling bigelow and mangum will shoot up those rankings soon.

I was at a function last night that the chancellor attended.  He asked if I was at the game last week and he could not believe how big the crowd was at the game.  I told him the crowd was great, but the game was awful.  He told me that this is only our 5th yr and the 3rd yr in FBS.  I am not sure he understands that A&T is FCS. 

I told him that we need to start looking at one deck and he told me that would be a long time since we do not need it right now.  I told him that App draws 25-30k every home game and people drive from Winston and Charlotte, and if we had a winning team we would draw 30k every game. 

He did not want to talk about it, but I told my wife when you have low expectations than you will never strive for improvement.  I was not really shocked, but he proved that until both him and Judy retires that sports will not be held accountable.

Did you ask him if he is proud to have the nation's smallest FBS stadium?  He probably does not even know.

Someone needs to tell him that having a 0 below the W in the standings is not good.   I do agree that there is no need for expansion.   The big crowd was a result of A&T fans.  The crowd will keep getting smaller as the season wears on.  Expansion has lost its momentum and I am afraid it may be some time before it will be needed.  Another missed opportunity by our school.

Last time when we played Ga State we ran the ball 54 times.  I'd like to see that again. 

Limit's Klugh's passes to deep balls that keep the defense honest.  If he gets picked on those no big deal.
