re: 2014-2015 State Baseball Thread***** Record 21-12 - Maroonmadness
Yes, apparently there was some sinister poltergeist that tripped Spruill when he was coming around 3rd base to score the winning run last night. :devil:...

re: 2014-2015 State Baseball Thread***** Record 21-12 - Maroonmadness
Yep, the Fat Lady sang on the season this past weekend. Only thing left to decide now is whether or not we squeak into the SEC tournament. Would be pretty embarassing not to even make the SEC tourney given only 2 SEC teams are left out. I mean you play for the NC and then 2 years later you can't ...

Yep, even that may not be enough, but without getting to .500 or better in the SEC we all know there is zero shot. Hopefully the RPI takes care of itself with the Top 20 wins it would take to get back to at least .500 in the SEC....

Key is finishing .500 or better in the SEC. If we win tomorrow we are only 1 game under .500, but if we lose, we are back to 3 games under .500....

re: ***tOfficial Stansbury wishes he could recruit like Howland Recruiting Thread*** - Maroonmadness
I'm not going to get back into my critique of Ray but I don't think effort was nearly as much of a problem as lack of a cohesive plan on offense or least not one that our players could understand or execute. And I wouldn't put much stock in how well Howland did his first year at UCLA. Every situat...

re: ***tOfficial Stansbury wishes he could recruit like Howland Recruiting Thread*** - Maroonmadness
While there is no sure thing on predicting how a recruit will produce as a FR in college, basketball is by far the easiest sport to do that in. And we have a lot of returning pieces so its not like Malik will need to come in and carry the whole team by himself. We aren't expecting 4 or 5 freshman ...

re: ***tOfficial Stansbury wishes he could recruit like Howland Recruiting Thread*** - Maroonmadness
My thoughts exactly. We would have a decent shot at the NIT next year without Newman AND if Ray and staff were still around. With Howland coaching and IF we add guys like Newman and Kasongo (neither of which we would get without Howland) there is NO reason why we shouldn't be able to raise our lev...

re: ***tOfficial Stansbury wishes he could recruit like Howland Recruiting Thread*** - Maroonmadness
So we've hired one of the winningest coaches in all of the NCAA over the past nearly 20 years. Next year we have probably the most veteran team returning in the SEC plus we have an excellent shot to add a Top 5 HS player and some other additional very nice players. With all of that its sunshine pu...

re: ***tOfficial Stansbury wishes he could recruit like Howland Recruiting Thread*** - Maroonmadness
Put it this way, if we don't make post-season play next year WITH Malik (likely one and done) and all the veteran players we have coming back plus some other nice pieces coming in, its likely going to be a long, sad year in Year 2 for Howland....

re: ***tOfficial Stansbury wishes he could recruit like Howland Recruiting Thread*** - Maroonmadness
Maybe that's what he was trying to say but that's not what he said. I stand fully by what I posted because people (including those that don't understand Malik's interest in us) are really downplaying the current guys on the team. To the extent of saying that even if you add a Top 5 player and some...

re: ***tOfficial Stansbury wishes he could recruit like Howland Recruiting Thread*** - Maroonmadness
Well, that rant came out of left field if it was really directed at me. I mean are you a relative of Ray? The man put a bad product on the court, especially offensively, for 3 straight years which had NOTHING to do with race. I don't think that is deniable in any way. And I haven't said one wor...

[quote]I hope I'm not being a homer and I'm trying not to get too carried away but we could be a tournament team. I hope Ray was a worst coach than we actually thought, and Chicken, Ware, and Fred all improve significantly under Howland. [/quote] Well they will certainly be better on the offensiv...

re: ***tOfficial Stansbury wishes he could recruit like Howland Recruiting Thread*** - Maroonmadness
If we land Malik to add to a returning veteran team that will now have a real coach in Howland then we are SOLIDLY into the NCAA tournament. Not a higher end seed by any means but solidly in. Forget this bubble team stuff. We should have easily been an NIT team THIS year if we had a coach that knew...

Because MSU is where he's always wanted to play, its where his Dad played. We weren't a viable option with Rick Ray but Ben Howland changes all of that. If we do get his signature, that's the reason....

[quote] He came up to bat with the bases loaded twice and hit into two fielder's choices. He also had two infield singles.[/quote] Somehow I keep getting visions of Willie Mays Hayes from Major League. Maybe we've been making Robson do 50 pushups every time he hits a fly ball. :lol:...
