Roster

Post by Mac23 »

Does anyone have inside info to why the NCAA is not clearing both Terry or Bynum? Most seem to think it’s just a matter of time while others think it could be next year for at least one of them. Both would add great depth with scoring options. Anyone?

Besides the fact that the NCAA is a huge joke of an organization? No clue.

Agree and this spurred a random thought for me. The NCAA has to be peeved at how much stuff has gone against their archaic ways recently. NLI, transfer portals with players immediately eligible, etc. I wonder if in cases of academic eligibility they are going to be dragging their feet to just try to exercise a bit of power that seems to be diminishing as seasons go on.

The transfer portal is a joke and I think programs are getting hosed by it. I mean, how many programs has JCL been a part of? What about Charlie Moore?

I have said that the most logical approach for athletics is feeder / academy programs like what is seen with soccer. Athletics is a business, plain and simple. If you want collegiate athletics, then some of these archaic ways need to remain.

We really need reinforcements fast. JFL can’t hold up at this pace and fortunate for us he hasn’t been in foul trouble. And really it’s not just him, a lot of guys have been logging mid to high 30 minutes. At some point it just catches up with you.

I had the same question, and really want an explanation as to the claim they have against these kids but everything you guys say about their arcane ways is absolutely true.

Now, unless I can get a list of facts that are behind the cause for the delay, I’m left only to speculate. And, I have no problem speculating they are being spiteful against DePaul and Peevy because DePaul (I think) was one of the first schools to hold a presser on NLI and signed it into IL state law with Pritzypoo. Now NCAA can’t spitefully, vengefully, punitively go after a sitting Governor (not really). But I think they are being spiteful against DePaul.

And, being spiteful against kids, that’s just flat out wrong and they are demonstrating their poor character and ethics as a result. Again, if someone can produce a list of facts as to the merits of the stay, fine, I’ll consider them on the merits. BUT, that’s the thing, we have no facts…. In which case speculation seizes the day and their vengefulness against kids shows….. disgusting folks if this is true.

Prove me wrong NCAA with some facts and merit….

I'd say by next week, I think we see 2 more added to the rotation.

I know of the eligibility issues with AB and JT, and I hear of the classroom work that Javon needs to work through this fall with Iowa State to play, but what’s up with Grant-Foster? Played first two games and now he’s out with little communication? Is it Covid, injury, something else?

We’re going to need these guys quickly if we want a chance of any remedial season as playing 7 guys night in and out won’t work and it’s going to hurt the guys that play to run them that hard.

What up with TGF? Anyone know?

It is concerning Grant-Foster went to the hospital directly after his last game. I assume it’s an internal body issue since he played and didn’t appear to be hurt. Hopefully he is on the road to recovery but it had to be pretty serious.

I’d assume we have seen the last of him on the court.
