There was a very strong likelihood when we recruited him that Jacob wasn’t going to contribute this year. The issue is we absolutely struck out last spring recruiting a big that could contribute. A DII transfer won’t cut it in the BE.

We seem to be in good shape next year with Martin, Jacob and Froling, but that doesn’t do us any good this season.

Show me another BE team that has one player on their entire team that can play above the rim. We had zero wiggle room with our frontcourt this year when we swung and missed bringing in a serviceable big last spring. When you play with fire, you get burned sometimes.

St. John’s has a whole roster of dudes who can play above the rim if that’s what your heart desires.

D2 and even NAIA does not = bad player. Look at Dennis Rodman and Scottie Pippen, NBA Champs.

FWIW Pippen was D1. Rodman was D2.

Regardless, this PARTICULAR D2 player was a real stretch and nowhere near Big East caliber. That said, if they can convince him to shelve the 3ball and stop being a black hoke on offense he CAN make some spot contributions.

Pippen was NAIA.

I'm still saying let's see what the next few games bring before the season gets thrown under the bus.

Also, coaches should be judged on both hits and misses. If your expectations are to just re-load as casually as picking up a loaf of bread and a jug of milk, you are exptecting us to be a top-10 to 15 program, which we are not. We went for Waters at PG, lost, then won, then lost.
That's the way it goes sometimes.

On the one hand people are irritated because we landed no PG, then irritated because we landed a big we judge to be subpar. Would you rather have our last scholarship given to a PG Manny?

Good plan to play him and wreck his knee!


Minor surgery which in all likelihood could have waited til offseason. But since the "plan" was to RS Jacob, they went ahead with the elective cleanup surgery.

I'm sorry. I must have dozed off. Your point was what again?

Since none of us have seen him play a college game yet, I'm not sure how you can say that.


I was told by someone in the program they don't expect him to stay four years.
