Obviously we aren’t either of those programs, but it can be done on a much smaller scale if you have the talent. And I have no problem playing fast. It would be a welcomed change from the previous regime.

BULLSEYE, Samuel!

Great coaches recruit the best athletes they can find. They then mold both their offensive and defensive approach to allow their roster to exploit their abilities as best possible. That is coaching, plain and simple.

Rob recruited talent very well, he simply refused to adjust his strategy. His best team was probably in 2017-18, they were just a basket from the NCAA tourney. The next year, however, Murph just did the same old, same old and expected JT4 to replace Tim Bond on the wing of his zone. C'mon man!

Four guards can win, so can a huge frontline. It's up to the coach do adjust to what he has available.

EMU folks got to know him. He's from Jersey.

Texas A&M probably the leader there.

Borrowing from the Toledo board-This is why you don't completely fill out your 2021 roster unless its with one and done grad transfers to avoid situations like this:

With the summer recruiting season in high gear for Men’s Basketball, you got to wonder how TK and Staff are going to handle the 2022 Recruiting Class as they do not have any scholarships available as of today. While transferring in as Juniors before last season with 2 years eligibility, both Sedric Milner Jr and JT Shumate will have another season of available to them if they choose to come back next season since the 2020-21 pandemic season will not count against them. With that said, do you think it will be difficult for the Rockets to sign anybody during the fall early signing period even though TK’s tenure at Toledo is filled with players transferring out after each season? An interesting dilemma to say the least!

A team always wants a full and complete roster each season with the caveat that a team does’t want to sign a bad player.

Yes, this year’s roster should add a transfer in their last season unless the player or players signed are so good they are going to help EMU in futures year’s as well.

Here is a Howard commit.

The Illinois star, Cockburn, entered the transfer portal.

These are not hardly Plan B players. Cockburn, I thought, was a NBA 2nd rounder.

I'd love to be a HM coach and have one or two scholarships in my back pocket.

Getting back to EMU. We still have one???

Don't know. Randle hasn't signed or publicly announced so we may two. The entire MAC has signed a nice group of transfers.

Randle is now on campus. Offensively, his videos show he can shoot and drive to the hoop. Defensively, he’s a shot-blocker.
