"A big that we desperately need committed to us the day before signing day and the first reply is negative towards him. At least save negative comments until the ink is dry on the NLI."

nah.  we're doing great.  just keep up what we've been doing here.  we'll be fine.   the recruits who come here to read about themselves are used to social media, blahblah.
bs. 
seriously.  i wonder how many potential recruits have come on nn.n early in the process and seen how we trash coaches, current players, recruits.  hell, the whole athletic department, not to mention the athletic director herself.   great recruiting assist i'm sure.
but....these kids (many of them "prima donnas" who know little other than how great they are) drop in here.  make no mistake about it.   
our negativity is overwhelming.  winning will surely help, but some brightening of attitude here could become a factor too.
Metro tweeted directly at a recruit and he didn't change mind. If you suck as a coach you should be called out on it. Very simple.
What good comes of bad mouthing coaches to recruits? Just because no apparent harm came from Metro's tweets does not mean it was a good idea. I believe he wound up apologizing for that, by the way.

This is a bleeping message board for fans to get together. There will be both positive and negative posts. That's reality. When you don't have success like we haven't, more negative than positive. Doesn't matter what sport it is.

Haslem is not responsible for anything that preceded him, which is why it's easy for me to be hopeful for a recruit and not project my frustration with the past on to him.


Beyond that it's really a matter of decency at the end of the day. This kid is signing up to come here and play for us. He's openly stating he wants to be part of a team that puts us back where we want to be. No way am I going to look for the negatives in a kid like that.

Pretty sure he tweeted at recruits not to come here during Major's era. Was absurd.

Agree.  And I'm pretty sure that Over40NINER would agree with this too.

Video of Haslem's team.  There are several more on youtube.  I think he is #32.

Thanks for posting those videos Hawthorne_49er. I didn't watch all of them, but in a few minutes I did notice some interesting things. He's got legitimate size, enough to bang down low for position and rebounds if he wants to. I didn't see him block any shots, but he did affect what the other team did on offense. They checked their drives to the basket if he got over to cover the move, so he may have potential to be a defensive presence we've completely lacked in the past two years. He's not super fast, I'd say he moves like a 7+ footer, but he seems quick enough to contribute in the post.

I wish he was a freshman, so he'd have more time to develop skills and endurance for the college game. But I'm glad he decided to come to Charlotte, hopefully he is quick to adjust. Most jucos we get probably 1.5 quality years from them at most in the past, but we need help right away.

Affecting shot selection is exactly what we need. Glad he's here.

IMO, Thorne was better than Phil.


Phil was a great shotblocker, something we have desperately needed for several years now, but Thorne was a better scorer and rebounder.

No way. Phil was way better,on offense also. Much better shooter.

Yeah Phil was almost automatic from the top of the key.

I don't think you can leave Vanhook off that list.  He is the only center we have had that was top 3 in points, rebounds and technicals.
Hey 49er undergrads, you are bigger than UNC-CH.  Start acting like it!

you could argue he was better offensively and not look silly but you can't say way better. PHIL played pretty soft around the basket. Thorne went hard.

Personally I prefer a center that sucks the defense in rather than one that will stand around the perimeter.

If Phil had Thorne's inside presence and rebounding he probably would have made it to the NBA. He got a few preseason stints even with the holes in his game.

Hopefully Haslem can be more of a hybrid of Thorne and Phil.  More than anything though, I want him to block and alter shots and not give up easy rebounds.  That's the lowest hanging fruit for improvement for this team.

Phil would have been more of an asset had he been able to pass.
The greatest boon in the popularity of Chapel Hill sports was the advent of cash registers that automatically figure change.
