Only 10 basketball players for this year?
Just browsing through gotigersgo; any walkons?

Let's hope no one gets hurt, early in the season.

Uh, two of the guys (of the 10) are essentially walkons and given scholarships.

Basically, Tubby came into the job with eight players and two recruits. He kept Rivers but couldn't couldn't hold Moore.

He brought in Kessee who essentially replaced Avery Woodson. He took one of his TT commits (gasp...pulled a Cal) and that guy essentially replaced Randall Broddie, who left.

He then lost Nick Marshall and replaced him with Rykhoeck.

He gave walkon Jake a scholarship.

The rub is that he's been here for 147 days. He had 5 open scholarships when he got here, likely knew Broddie and Marshall were iffy and did nothing but steal his own recruit from Tech and get the Coppin State grad transfer. Then, out of desperation/necessity, got a guy who hasn't played competitive ball in 4+ years.

The word on the street is that he just doesn't give a crap about this season and based on his efforts over the summer to add some decent pieces to a nice nucleus, I might have to agree.

Go ahead and flub this year, then slowly build up the next three or four seasons. Get to the point, four years from now, where a junior and senior laden squad will compete for a conference title, maybe get a 6-8 seed and maybe get Memphis back to their 1st S16 in 11 years.

Retire and push for Saul to get the job.

No, Cal CHOSE to have a really short bench because his top 8 players were all 5 stars.

No different than previous years. We may have had more players on the bench, but a handful of them would be suspended or dealing with tendonitis.

Not as many prep school guys as you might think

Mostly just that one year

I remember they went looking for walk-ons just to have enough players to practice. That was the worst of it, but Cal was short a full roster three or more years.

With Cal? I know Pastner had to fill out a roster his first year after Garcia and Nglorio or whosever tore their ACLs

He also has a couple guys declare after signing (Perkins, Stoudamire, Qyntel) and then had some in season defections/suspensions...Sanchez, Richmond, Banks, Hunt, Grice, Wade...

LOL-don't even compare Cal's roster to this mess-we have one definite high D1 player; 3 if KJ is healthy and ready along with Markell IF he can consistently hit a jumper.

Mo Avery suited up for one of Cal's teams. Can't remember the circumstances. Also started at QB vs UT one year. Damn near won that game. Kid was fearless.

Also, is Sam Craft playing this year or no?

Cal's first few seasons weren't that much better. I think we are better off this time around. I hope so anyway. I have my blue glasses on. Don't spoil it.

Mo probably shoulda been the QB from the start that year


He definitely saved us

Yeah but Cal was recruiting his butt off, but some of his recruits were going pro, not eligible or in general he was just setting his targets too high for what he could realistically get to come here on a regular basis without a recent history of program success. Tubby really looks like he doesn't care.

Who would be more likely to win with the players we have now vs, say an SMU or someone of that ilk -- a Cal-coached Memphis or a Tubby-coached Memphis?

That is how I see it. Looks bad that he just gave up on 2016.
Hope he coaches these guys up.
A couple of higher caliber players in the Lawson's could use some good solid coaching.
