Complete one trick pony. I'm pretty sure the repetition stems from a lack of grey matter. Then again, what the hell else is the kid going to post about?

Dayton Expectation #1: If you come here, one of our boosters will give "loans" to your family members a la Brooks Hall.


See how easy, and stupid, it is to play that game?

At least Dayton didn't have to worry about vacating any NCAA tournament wins.

I think that's all coming from the fact that the only coaches that have been reported as visiting Oriakhi are X, Mizzou, and UK... maybe?

Zagoria goes into it in this post from three days ago:

Alex Oriakhi Meets With Kentucky, Xavier & Mizzou (UPDATED)

Quote:
Over the last couple of days, UConn junior power forward Alex Oriakhi met at his Lowell, Mass., home with Kentucky coach John Calipari, Xavier coach Chris Mack and Missouri coach Frank Haith.


Sounds decent, but I had also heard that Duke and UNC dropped out of the picture. Apparently that's not true though:
Quote:
Oriakhi said he’s also considering North Carolina and Duke and reports that Duke was out are untrue.

I never said they were out,” he said. I’m talking to North Carolina and Duke as well. I’m pretty sure visits are going to come in the future. I don’t want to miss classes.”

Oriakhi said Washington was out basically because, “Why go that far?”


Either way, sounds like it will be a little while before we hear anything:
Quote:
“I really don’t have a timetable. It’s not something Im going to rush, either.

“Probably by the end of the month.”

Re: Xavier recruiting

I can't remember ever seeing a big man who has zero offensive game draw this much attention on the transfer market.

Re: Xavier recruiting

We can certainly use the help in the middle, we'll be really thin there next year. Unfortunately we are the only school on the list where he hasn't commented on making a visit. Would like him to at least come see the campus. We'll see.

As a freshman/sophomore he averaged about 10/8.
Fell off last year as they featured Drummond.
We could use the 10/8 to replace Kenny for sure. Added bonus he has played on winning National Championship team.

I think we're probably going to like the kid.
Looked like Tyler Lewis was playing some intense defense out there. Almost got into a defensive stance that one time.

Oh no doubt about it, Xavier needs him, and he would be an asset in the A10, especially on the boards. The only school that needs him more is Mizzou. I'm just shocked to see so many programs after him. Kentucky? Unless Calipari is planning on slowing down his style, he is of almost zero use to them. He has no offensive game. He can just catch passes and dunk. Kind of a poor man's Frease, when Frease cared enough to play hard.

Did Dillard EVER get into a defensive stand last year? I would have thought he was spanish with all the "ole's" he gave out.
