Re: AE gameday 1/5/2013

Chambers final recruiting class was a big miss- not helping Jones either.

BU needs quality size. I watched Lehigh/VCU yesterday and even when McCollum got hurt, Lehigh still had some skilled big men. BU needs to get some size if they are going to compete with the Lehigh's and Bucknell's in the Patriot. Their back court is ready to go though.

They have at best seven guys.

Their roster is very, very short, for reasons totally out of his control: If BU doesn't switch conferences, not only does he have O'Brien back, but he also had a commitment from a VERY, VERY good 5th year transfer who backed out once BU got banned from the AE tournament.
And I agree with this. If BU had O'Brien back and if this 5th year transfer was a F, then BU would have a completely different record right now. Most of their close losses are most likely wins.

I'm assuming this player was not Markus Kennedy from 'Nova because he would have had to sit out.

Correct... but it was an impact big from a BCS team.

Re: AE gameday 1/5/2013

ffts- Do you hear this from someone outside of BU that didn't hear it from BU? Also why is this players name being held secret? I understand things needing to be sealed under closed lips but some of the stuff that seems to be kept under wrap seem like not a big deal at all. I don't see any thing negative about this information.

Hmm, I'm intrigued. Not a lot of grad student/5th year big men from BCS conferences. Curious as to who it could be.

Re: AE gameday 1/5/2013

My guess is it was Oriakhi from UConn...who ended up at Missouri and could play immediately.

Can't be Oriakhi b/c he transferred due to UConn being ineligible for NCAA's- not because he graduated and was a 5th year transfer. That being said also, Oriakhi was considering Kentucky, Duke, and UNC among others.

My apologies...I didn't read the "5th year" part in FFTS' original post. Well damn, now I have no clue and am very interested myself.

Re: AE gameday 1/5/2013

Hhmmmmmm...I know of some bigs that transferred TO BCS teams from Mid-Majors but can't really think of any that went the other way except for the kid that left NC State to go to Old Dominion. Shoot, can't remember his name now but I believe he is having a pretty good season despite ODU's lack of success this year.

Gotta be Bilal Dixon, graduated from Providence and playing immediately at Towson...has to be the one FFTS is talking about...makes sense.

Don't think so because Towson is also ineligible for NCAA's due to APR.

Old Dominion also ineligible for CAA Tourney on the other kid
