The coaching staff wanted Sam Dunkum. The coaching staff wanted Epperson. I don't care who is on scholarship...If Sam can bang down low, get boards, and has a fire...I don't care as long as we win.

Dorwart dominated my team in the church league. Funny thing is, he did it from the perimeter. We had some big old guys that more than held their own against him in the post.

Dunkum was almost assuredly an insurance policy once Mac realized the possibility of JP leaving after one season was very real. At the very worst, he's another body and another 5 fouls and a good scout team guy. Best case scenario, he becomes a serviceable center in is final season ala Geoff Groselle.

In a couple of seasons I could see him being a solid option for some minutes. Mac develops big men pretty well.

and compare it to Sam's...if you can find who, other than Lafayette, actually offered.

"LOL"


Well, by your rationale, Patton must be bad, too, right?

Are you actually being serious with this post or are you just screwing around at this point?

Because if you're serious that's really stupid. Patton was a non-entity as a Jr. But had he not accepted CU's offer early that next summer he absolutely would have been offered by all kinds of power conference programs once his progress was witnessed on the summer AAU circuit. They didn't miss so much as they just never really had a chance.

If you're just screwing around...carry on.

Listen, Sam Dunkum could develop into the next great thing....but the overwhelming likelihood is that he'll be very fortunate to achieve what Geoff Groselle did. And nearly every coach in D1 basketball agrees. Hell, GREG MCDERMOTT agrees or the kid would have a scholarship by now. I'll go with their assessment over your brief film study.

I thought the plan was for Dunkum to have a scholarship next year?

The absolute best case scenario is he is Groselle. Worst case scenario is that he is Will Artino.

I would say worst case is that he is a taller skinnier Dan Bresnahan.
