Also, it probably hurts a school in the future if they refuse to grant release. Kids may choose to go elsewhere.

Lol. Say ODU signs a kid in the November signing period and then blows up his senior year. UVA or VA Tech come calling in the spring. ODU just gonna let him out of his LOI? According to you, yes. BC it is BS because Jeff Jones can up and leave at a moments notice.

Did you know that Mitchell Robinson verballed to Texas A&M before he verballed then signed with Western? Can you tell me who was the assistant at A&M that recruited him there? Was it Rick Stansbury or Shammond Williams? He committed because of his relationship at the time with Rick. I don't think Shammond was even in the coaching game at the time. May have still been with Tulane.

Rick hired Shammond and Quannas White from the Tulane staff. Did that help? Sure it did. Shammond got fired for being a d!ck. That's not what was released but I heard too many examples of it. All this speculation started after Shammond was fired. Who do you think was in MR's ear?

Stans goes down and talks to MR and his mom and he arrives in BG the next day. But according to you Rick shouldn't have played the LOI card??? Really???


ODU should and has let kids out of their LOI. ODU let Tre Evans out of his scholarship last year as long as he didn't go to another CUSA school or Tulsa.

You really don't think Shammond Williams had anything to do with Robinson signing with WKY? Since we are talking about letting kids or not letting kids out of their LOI, do you really think it is productive to have a kid play on your team that has no interest in playing for your school? Good luck winning anything with that.

Did you not read my post. Look at the bolded part.

Nobody has ever heard of Tre Evans. I had to google him to find out he was a 3 star 77. Mitchell Robinson is a 5 star 95. As Bob Euker said in Major League "Juuuuuust a little bit outside"

No interest in playing for the school? He came in yesterday. He was in Diddle Arena last night fooling around. This is not a bad kid. He had bad people in his ears. His mom took care of that mess. For now.

But these hangers on (leeches) and questionable coaches.....looking directly at you LSU won't give up easy.



Who cares who has heard of what? The point is the school should let kids out of the LOI; whether it is a 2 star or a 5 star.

Im guessing you didn't read mine either. I've never said MR was unhappy; I said IF a kid is unhappy, he should be allowed to leave.

Let's not act like Stansbury isn't the slimiest of them all. It's worth it if he can finally win games, but your are insult our intelligence if all the coaches he brought in are now slimeballs after leaving while Stansbury is a stand up guy.

I read your post. The main subject was Mitchell Robinson. You inferred he could be a cancer to the team.

And you must be fun at parties mr. Black and White. A 3 star nobody is not in anyway compared to a 5 star potential lottery pick. You lose all credibility for saying there aren't different rules for different levels of people.

You must be very young or very uptight. As WKUYG says, who is by no means a Stansbury lover, he was in no trouble for recruiting while at Miss. State. I've hammered him more than anybody in the last year on some of his x and os. I'm not some Pollyanna fan.

Come back and talk to me when ODU brings in a 5 star. Hint: Never. Until then your input is invalid in my opinion. Letting a scrub go is one thing.

Stans is the slimiest of all? More than Calipari? More than Coach K? More than Louieville? More than Deputy Dawg at UNC? More than LSU who had people contacting a signed kid? You think Stans can come close to offering top recruits what these places are doing?

You're either very, very naive or just a hater.

The school pays for the kid and offers him education not the assistant coach. I am hating the current landscape of collegiate sports. Kids sign the letters after a lot of effort from the coaches and some good money spent by the school and the kid gets to leave because his bed isn't as soft as it was at home. I hope WKU doesn't grant this kid waiver and let him leave.

The kid is a 1 and done. Do you really think he actually wants an education. Not a chance in hell.

This is where I think the D-League well now the G-League should be used by the NBA. If the NBA doesn't want players until they are a year out of HS then this is what they need to do. The new structured G-League every team will have a team in the league by 2019. You drop the age limit on kids and let them be drafted. Then that team that drafts the HS kid assigns him to their G-League team for a year or 2 on a guarantee contract that he will be brought up in that time frame.

If the NBA would do something like this they could have a true minor league system just like hockey does and even be able to call a player up or send them down. But then again I don't have that much faith on anything the NBA.

He had other offers at Rice that he turned down (including VCU 2 years ago). But the mass exodus would have happened even if Rhoades had stayed - the problem is that college basketball players either want to play in front of a crowd or closer to home if they aren't in front of big crowds. And we had guys leave for both reasons. Two of our six guys who left graduated from Rice. A third is going to Howard to go pre-med since he can't be pre-med at Rice (although he could have easily taken a similar academic load).

Stansbury has been a D1 head coach before (Mississippi State), and probably has done shaky recruiting staff in his past too.

There is a difference between building a team with solid recruiting in identifying sleepers that the bigger schools miss out. And hiring assistant coaches/handlers to pull in an occasional top recruit.

We've done that too with Ben Braun bringing in Marcos Morcos as an assistant - that was a disaster. And hiring Todd Graham in football too. Compare Stansbury to either of those, and you're closer to the truth.

I do agree that they shouldn't release him from his scholarship but I also wonder if the kid will spill some dirt on Stansbury if they don't.

Rice may have had a few transfers had Rhodes still been at Rice. That's a given each year at each school. If it be the kid is homesick, just realizes college isn't for him/her or a different number of reasons. But you wouldn't have had the mass exodus of 8 players, again 4 which were starters.

Part of that reasoning is why I like D'Antoni's recruiting. The players he has, here is a list of their homes:

West Virginia - 5 listed, Jon Elmore, Rondale Watson, CJ Burks, Jarrod West, Phil Bledsoe (8 come the fall, 3 walkons from WV)
Kentucky - 1 Christian Thienman
North Carolina - 2 Terrence Thompson, Iran Bennett
Georgia - 1 Jannson Williams
Virginia - 2 Darius George, Tanner Robinette
International - 3 Ajdin Penava (Bosnia & Herzegovina), Dani Koljinin (Croatia), Milan Mijovic (Serbia)

Besides our 3 international players all of our recruits except for Jannson Williams is less than 5 1/2 hours from home, also Jannson is only 7 1/2 hours away in Newman GA. Dan also lets his international players go home for a month and half during the summer. Both Penava and Mijovic are home and expected back at the end of the month. Koljinin who is from Croatia decided to stay in Huntington and work on his game and learn more about the system Dan has since he just joined the team.

Your sleepers or unknowns aren't just right. Marcus Evans was very well known 3 years before he was a recruit. As a recruit though the kid didn't have the measurable that a P5 want. At the time he was barely 6'1 and 165#. Most P5s look for 6'4 185-200 for their PG. He would probably still be looked over now at 6'2 195, if Rhodes had not got the Rice Job in March of 2014, Evans would have committed to VCU because of the relationship with Rhodes. Lecter Ellis had a ton of offers from UTEP to Clemson and Oaklahoma. The only real sleeper of your 1st class was Jeremy Jones.

Also just stop the BS lazy Jeff Goodman Stansbury is cheating crap....Some of you seriously think Stans and WKU are paying off players? You think we could pay more than these P5 schools? Some of you sound ridiculous....Now I am not saying we don't bend or stretch or do whatever we can but that's almost all schools...I got into a conversion with Goodman on twitter and he said no one is surprised he is getting top 10 talent at WKU, he is known as a bad ass recruiter in coaching circles...For those who continue to take jabs at him that he cheats do us all a favor and provide proof, we will all wait!

Here is the parallels:

Both Mike Rhodes and Rick Stansbury are/where building a house to get another job. Once they get that job the house of cards they built will crumble.

Where they are miles apart is Mike Rhodes is likable and Id put Rick Stansbury in the category of slimy next to Calipari, Huggins, Pitino, Boeheim and Dean Smith.

LMAO, dude you have no clue...You don't think Rick is likeable? Have you heard him talk? The guy is a salesmen and very much likeable...That's what makes him such a great recruiter to these kids, after hearing Stansbury talk you want to run through a wall for him....So Stansbury is slimy now? How can you be slimey at non P5 like Western? Those other coaches you listed are all at P5 schools, is it really possible to be slimey at a supposed non P5 school? How is that possible?

As far as building a house of cards, isn't every coach doing this? So let me guess your guy from Marshall D'Antonio is different and is not building a program to leave? He is happy as can be, older from West Vriginia, etc.......Can we not say the same thing about Rick?.....Rhodes was getting 4 and 5 star players too like Rick is? Just stop about your comparisons and or obsession with WKU and RIce, no comparisons at all with one another..... What ties did Mike Rhodes have at Rice? I don't see how this guy at Rice has anything to do with Stansbury at WKU? Rice and WKU are not equal when it comes to basketball, so stop lumping us in with RIce...Every coach in this league can be said the same as far as building for another job, so just stop your stupid arguments....

He showed up for class today. So I would assume staying as he would now have to sit out a year if he wanted to leave.

How about Tremont Waters? Georgetown, rightfully, let him out of his LOI and he was a top 50 recruit. A school not letting a kid out of a LOI is not going to end up well for the school (talking about kids that want out). The kid isn't going to be happy and future recruits are going to see how petty the school is....Pittsburgh, for example.

Western Kentucky fans seem happy about a 5-star recruit...cool. Personally, I don't get attached to kids or get overly hyped when they come in. Only fans of teams that get 5 star recruits can opine on the topic? Well, since my graduate school has had several 5 star recruits and national titles (and I'm a fan), does that mean I can tell you to shut up about Western Kentucky because they aren't on that level so your opinion is worthless?

Stansbury is certainly a slime ball. Personally, I think its good for the conference to get some attention in the short period of time he will be a coach here. I'm not mad at all about it. I actually think it adds interest and of course, will allow us all to laugh if they don't win the conference.

Cool of you to be a union manager. Very proud of you and you seem to think highly of yourself, which is a great thing. I run my own company, I'm happy with my policies as well.

The only other thing he could have done is go overseas because he isn't sitting out a year.

I see you listed as ODU under your name. I'm not sure who your backup team to root for is.

Wtf is a union manager? I said I was a union officer for multiple years and then went into management for several years. You seem slow to understand things. I didn't think that would have to be explained. It means I've been on both sides of a contract. And contracts involve blanket policies. Both sides work around them.

You run your own company with a blanket policy? You're telling me you treat your best employee the exact same way you treat a shitt employee?

Georgetown as an example with Tremont Waters? Do you even follow hoops? There was a head coaching change at Georgetown. Were you not aware of that? Patrick Ewing replaced John Thompson III there. Not even close to the situation at Western.

Hater. lol.

Stansbury is certainly a slime ball. Personally, I think its good for the conference to get some attention in the short period of time he will be a coach here. I'm not mad at all about it. I actually think it adds interest and of course, will allow us all to laugh if they don't win the conference.

Cool of you to be a union manager. Very proud of you and you seem to think highly of yourself, which is a great thing. I run my own company, I'm happy with my policies as well.

I see you listed as ODU under your name. I'm not sure who your backup team to root for is.

Wtf is a union manager? I said I was a union officer for multiple years and then went into management for several years. You seem slow to understand things. I didn't think that would have to be explained. It means I've been on both sides of a contract. And contracts involve blanket policies. Both sides work around them.

You run your own company with a blanket policy? You're telling me you treat your best employee the exact same way you treat a shitt employee?

Georgetown as an example with Tremont Waters? Do you even follow hoops? There was a head coaching change at Georgetown. Were you not aware of that? Patrick Ewing replaced John Thompson III there. Not even close to the situation at Western.

Hater. lol.

You do realize he was let go before JT3 was fired?

P.S. that is why the elitist crap will never fly. Especially when you are trying to pull it off with Western effin Kentucky.

Im guessing you didn't read mine either. I've never said MR was unhappy; I said IF a kid is unhappy, he should be allowed to leave.

Let's not act like Stansbury isn't the slimiest of them all. It's worth it if he can finally win games, but your are insult our intelligence if all the coaches he brought in are now slimeballs after leaving while Stansbury is a stand up guy.

I read your post. The main subject was Mitchell Robinson. You inferred he could be a cancer to the team.

And you must be fun at parties mr. Black and White. A 3 star nobody is not in anyway compared to a 5 star potential lottery pick. You lose all credibility for saying there aren't different rules for different levels of people.

You must be very young or very uptight. As WKUYG says, who is by no means a Stansbury lover, he was in no trouble for recruiting while at Miss. State. I've hammered him more than anybody in the last year on some of his x and os. I'm not some Pollyanna fan.

Come back and talk to me when ODU brings in a 5 star. Hint: Never. Until then your input is invalid in my opinion. Letting a scrub go is one thing.

Stans is the slimiest of all? More than Calipari? More than Coach K? More than Louieville? More than Deputy Dawg at UNC? More than LSU who had people contacting a signed kid? You think Stans can come close to offering top recruits what these places are doing?

You're either very, very naive or just a hater.

Source: I've been both a union officer for years and a manager for more years. Blanket policies exist in unicorn land.

How about Tremont Waters? Georgetown, rightfully, let him out of his LOI and he was a top 50 recruit. A school not letting a kid out of a LOI is not going to end up well for the school (talking about kids that want out). The kid isn't going to be happy and future recruits are going to see how petty the school is....Pittsburgh, for example.

Western Kentucky fans seem happy about a 5-star recruit...cool. Personally, I don't get attached to kids or get overly hyped when they come in. Only fans of teams that get 5 star recruits can opine on the topic?

Everyone on Georgetown's campus knew JT3 was gone. Article I just read detailing the release was in early april. JT3 fired in late March so false by you again.

Elitist crap? Wtf are you even talking about now? You must be a last word getter inner. You never answered my question about your blanket policy at your big balling business.

Stay on point son and answer the questions.

RE: Mitchell Robinson not going to WKU or is he?
Waters requested the release before JT3 was fired. If you knew that, you really are a smart guy because most were skeptical since his Dad runs the program. They granted it. Whether you want to believe the release didn't happen to later (when it was reported, not when it was granted) is up to you.

I could see Stansbury becoming WKU's version of Tim Floyd.

THat would mean Stansbury has to stay longer then just 2 seasons, according to most on here he is already gone after this year....Cannot say much as some of our own fan base had him leaving this past off season to LSU after going 15-17 03-lmfao03-lmfao

If you knew what you were talking about you would realize his case WAS a very unique situation. He committed to Coach Stansbury at Texas A&M and immediately decommited when he left. He then committed to WKU and Stansbury. THEN his godfather, Shammond Williams, was hired as assistant from Tulane. He signed his LOI and was ENROLLED IN CLASSES to begin July 10. His godfather was let go a few days before he was due to be on campus. There was no head coaching change, he had a prior positive relationship with the head coach, he had signed an LOI, was ENROLLLED in classes, and four days before he was set to arrive he had people in his ear because his godfather was let go. That is a unique situation.

None of this changes that "if" he wanted out, he should have been given a release, which was the entire point.

Even if he was let out of his LOI, by NCAA rules he would have to sit out a year..... he would have to go play overseas for a year and I dont think Mamma was to keen on that
