Re: 2012-2013 Vermont Catamount Thread!

the only way a freshmen pg sees the floor next year is if elbaum or sandro gets hurt, sick. its a good idea to have a third string pg. freshmen dont need to play. i would rather see a big man signed instead like payen. with two junior pg's next year though we need to start getting some young pg's. if we get 1 pg in 2013 and 1 pg in 2014 we will end up having a freshmen and sophomore pg as our only pg's that year. we do need more depth at pg right now.

maybe becker should let four play some pg. he showed some ability to pass on the drive. i like him breaking down defenses at the end of the shot clock and uvm pg's dont handle the ball as much as other offenses. we could still get four open looks off the flex

Re: 2012-2013 Vermont Catamount Thread!

I really hope UVM can become the dynasty that this league needs... and they have all the makings to be it...

But nothing is guaranteed. BU was supposed to be the Dynasty of the AE after going to the NCAA's in 2002. The '02 Terriers started 2 Frosh, 2 soph's and a Jr. They returned their top 8 scorers from the year before. Despite 2 outright regular season titles and AP top 25 votes the next two seasons, they never got back to the NCAA's...

The point being not that UVM wont, but that in the AE you just never know, so really make sure to enjoy every ounce of this great team and great run, because nothing is guaranteed.

I'd rather see the rest of the league step it up and work towards respectability.

Until Maine starts taking its program seriously though, UVM is my team of choice!

If a guard is added for 2012, I just don't see how they see the court next year.
I gotta believe that the last 2012 scholly goes to Rugg.

Hard to argue that he hasn't earned it. And, with him being a Vermonter, wouldn't it be a relatively cheaper scholarship -- it would be worth "only" in-state tuition, rather than out-of-state.

I'm 100% for Rugg getting a ride. He has earned it.

Re: 2012-2013 Vermont Catamount Thread!

Does anyone know when the last time UVM took back a scholarship and who it was. With the distribution of scholarships, large number with current sophs, just wondering if that was a possibility.

Can the NCAA tourney money be used for scholarships?

Next year the league should be better. Vermont, Albany and Stony Brook bring back the core. Hartford will be better and never count out BU.

Do you mean take one away from the current group of scholarship players? I'm not sure that has ever happened. I know lonergan didn't do it when it could have been beneficial. That's just a bad practice. I think what most teams do is at their end of year evaluations they tell their players what their realistic chance of getting playing time is and if that isn't satisfactory a player may transfer.

Re: 2012-2013 Vermont Catamount Thread!

Giving Rugg a scholarship is an interesting dilemma. Rugg clearly deserves it- but then we will have a 7-man junior class that would all graduate at the same time (barring nobody leaving today)- Voelkel, Sandro, Elbaum, McKeaney, Apfeld, Rusin + Rugg

That's not balanced at all...I can't remember a Vermont team ever graduating that many kids in one year.

Re: 2012-2013 Vermont Catamount Thread!

i think we can assume he will get the scholarship.
he will be key to uvm's success next year. so unless he is getting a ton of grants and scholarships (maybe the green and gold? don't know if he was that level of student in high school) he will get the scholarship just to be on the safe side.
i'm sure plenty of other schools would love to have him.

I have no window into Clancy's mind (or those of his parents), but I could imagine the knowledge that you aren't getting a scholarship, and that other, possibly lower-performing teammates are, could start to fester a bit. Yes, Clancy's a Vermonter, but so is Pat Bergmann, who was (I think) on scholarship for 5 years, and whose production after two years was considerably less than what Clancy's achieved. (Was Chad Powlovich ever offered a scholarship?)

Also, the 7-man class leaving at the same time is going to happen anyway, no matter who's on scholarship. The coaching staff will have to deal with that, maybe by recruiting another promising walk-on or two.

So even if it's not convenient to award a scholarship to Clancy, I'd still want to see that happen. Plus it serves as encouragement to other potential walk-ons.
