RE: 2017 basketball
There was no way to know Talley was going to have issues detrimental to the team. The guy can play ball when his head is screwed on right. I think any CUSA team would have been happy to land him. Therefore I think JJ did a good recruitment job with Talley. Maybe not a good coaching or mentoring job, but recruiting... yeah.

We'll agree to disagree. Judging the character orbs kid is just as important as judging his basketball ability. JJ has been forced to dismiss a number of players, so it is not like this is a one off.

Talley is a good kid, no one would surmise he would be forced to leave.

Again, signing transfers does not mean they were afterthoughts or because they failed with freshman. I'm not sure where that mentality comes from.

He couldn't get through a single season without breaking the rules. Do it once its a mistake, do it twice you're an idiot, do it three times knowing you will be dismissed, you, at best, are a terrible teammate.

Check out the team. I'm saying Porter will see a huge improvement this season, the guy has put in the work and hearing good things. Godwin is looking good for a freshman.

Im not denying he made mistakes. But, hes a good kid and no one would be scared to have brought him in. Its not like we are marshall and brought in bad kids.

Then why do we dismiss so many players? Maybe they aren't bad people, but they also are not guys you want on your team and we have gotten more of them than most teams under JJ. Guys like Talley or Douglas that look like great players, but aren't being recruited by anyone are not being recruited by anyone for a reason.

I'll go. He's a wing at best. I walked past him on Campus the other day and he can't be more than 6'3. I actually didn't think it was him because he looked like a point guard. I am not sure why it matters if he can play, but he is not a big.

I will do it now.....I said earlier he was not a 6-6 PF that was advertised. I said he was 6-4.5 at best. If we are going to rely on him to play PF we are in huge trouble.
