Then, a couple of days later, had the individual meeting where he yanked the scholarship.

Not too classy, in spite of whatever positive things he accomplished this year. He didn't handle this well. Whether Miller was truly a D1 basketball player or not is irrelevant. He treated that kid like crap at the end.

+1

Cawoo knows what went down. And, to quote Dog Fan (?) I believe, "Ricardo Patton, the gift that keeps on giving!"

I guess this answers my question.

It seems we got this guy for Miller

Miller is a great kid but not a D1 player. If you saw him play SIU and DePaul, you know why he was cut.

I think anyone with any knowledge of basketball hears it for what it is: a whiney exit by a disgruntled player who was in over his head....Hardly an embarrassment....and any player that takes that scholarship will contribute much more to a winning program....

to show you how misinformed coachdad might be, the two point guards he referenced are NOT transfers but both h.s. players--one SIGNED with NIU in November and the other committed last month...you think that would have told miller something--we just hired two new guys at your position. if that happened at your company, what would you think????

hopefully, monty uses that millers scholarship to get a real player...maybe a BIG player

there is on evidence he treated the kid like "crap at the end." He just needed better players...letting someone go who is a detriment to your organization's goals is not treating them like crap--it is life.

We got Baker when Deandree Bennett left, not for Miller. Niu has 1 more scholly left. Monty is the coach, which means he has to make the hard decisions. I am sure Millers family is mad, he just lost a full ride and his family must now help pay. There will not be any fall-out for Niu with Illinois highschool coaches. D1 athletics is a business not a charity!

Being cut is one thing but if it happened the way it supposedly did in the article, not too classy or smart and what's worse, could be a black mark that might affect recruiting, especially if the kid's dad is a high school coach. Lord knows, we need all the help we can get in recruiting.

The "public" outside of NIU sports fans and maybe some really hardcore MAC fans don't really care about this stuff.

This stuff happens all the time and we occationally think that we are above it then we realize that our crap stinks too.

Disagree--You don't think the high school coaches all around Chicagoland hear of this stuff and are influenced by it.

While this is a concern of mine as well, it's well known that you only show up on this board when something negative happens. You make Alum look bubbly by comparison.

Just yesterday there was something posted saying that MM is doing great in Chicago, I doubt some dad (even if he is a long time coach) and sadly not D1 material player spouting off in anger will affect that.

MM did it the MSU way. JC better explain to MM how the NIU way is.

rebuilding a program in deep doo doo is akin to watching the making of sausage.
