Re: David Sloan in transfer portal

So we had two senior role players? I can accept that argument however I’m not sure that’s what you’re saying. My point is that X and Diarra should have been better than role players as experienced seniors. If the surrounding cast isn’t setting you up how Barry, Kam, and Dean did then ADAPT. Change y...

Re: David Sloan in transfer portal

So I see both sides. Gd says “every scouting report said to stop X and Cartier.” I firmly believe that to be accurate. I also know that scouting report didn’t stop X from going 2-11 and 0-5 from 3 far too many times. The rest of the supporting cast was not good. KState wouldn’t have been a tourney t...

Re: Donavan Williams - Do these guys know something?

I’m disappointed in losing a recruiting battle but in this situation, I honestly think it’s for the best. There are some major red flags in his game and “attitude”. Obviously I’m speculating on the attitude part but he screams 1-year transfer type player. Furthermore, the last thing KState needs is ...

Re: David Sloan in transfer portal

Exactly. And he didn’t have to exclusively play 4, it could’ve been 10 of the 30 minutes per game or on a game by game basis depending on personnel, matchups, etc. However, that Lowery statement essentially threw that possibility out the window. The season is over and I’m somewhat dwelling on it but...

Re: David Sloan in transfer portal

In retrospect it’s not really surprising that X and Carti’s shooting% went down this year. I said that would happen early this year. Defensive scouting reports are going to make that happen. But they should have made enough adjustments to correct that and counter the scouting reports. That involves...

Re: Donavan Williams - Do these guys know something?

i was invited to watch a practice judge's freshman year. i still believe he was emotionally destroyed. nothing anyone can write here will ever change my mind about that. it was an experience i'll never forget and the point at which i thought the coach needed counseling or replacing. From my observa...

Re: Recruiting Thread

Rudi Williams, Juco PG from NEO, commits to KState. Decent highlights and good FT %. He seems very good in the midrange but form gets a little left-to-right Dajuan-esque from 3.

Obviously this is the backup plan after Ellis chose Bama. He’s not at Ellis’ level but doesn’t look bad either.

Re: D.Gordon

The hype train is big on Gordon huh, wow. If he was truly injured then I’ll walk back my take on his athleticism. He had about 5 missed dunks late in the year where he was about 6 inches from getting it down. I also understand “vertical” isn’t the only true measure of an athlete too. I like his quic...

Re: Epic 2 overtimes KSU vs Xavier 2010 sweet 16

I like the end of your post learnin but Curtis Kelly was far from inconsistent as a junior in 2010. Actually he was an extremely consistent player who had double digit games all the time. He played well vs Xavier but by no means played at some sort of magical level way above himself. I can agree wit...
