Fixed it for you.


i respect matt demarinis's point of view and his opinion on these sorts of things...fine if you don't...sorry that we can only speculate based on reports that come from those close to the program. if you wanted to just hear what the coaches have to say, why would you participate on a board like this?


You keep citing the "staff" (presumably the coaching staff) or Matt Demarinis as the authoritative source of your information. Certainly you understand that the appeal to authority can be one of the oldest fallacies of argument. I have looked through each page of this post and I see no posting from Mr Demarinis. Can you point us to such a post? I may have missed it. If not, can you explain your "pipeline" (my word not yours) to the coaches opinions and thought process?

Mitch is such a stud. He would already be the #1scoring option on some Valley-level teams. So fun to watch.

And with that that beard & smooth shooting stroke, I see “The Lumberjack, part deux” in his future!

Not to demean Wragge, but Mitch's upside is a lot higher. Wragge may be a better shooter, but Mitch does a lot of things Ethan could only dream about, i.e., running the court and blocking Watson's layup at the rim.

Watching that block never gets old. Even better because it was NU’s best player. Mitch is gonna be a thorn in their side for years.
