  1. Yep, if Dickey gets in at 42-65 the next dorm near Joe Greene Hall is Seth Hall across the street from the new Derek Thompson Ave.
  2. 3 Dallas area players in the starting lineup. Might become a Zags fan.
  3. He moves around a lot. Helped Lancaster move to the state finals at QB before leaving for the Houston area his senior year.
  4. Don't understand why the city of Houston chose the Texans as their name when Dallas had it previously. (Now KC Chiefs)
  5. Extremely proud this young man chose to represent the flagship university in Texas. Keep grinding young man a bright future awaits you at the next level.
  6. Getting an interview and being hired are 2 different things. How are we heading in the right direction with a roster of mostly juniors. (And no big men brought in) He got 0 production from a 6 man signing class just last year. These guys are now at the end of the bench. We went from tied for 7th in conference to tied for 11th (I believe). I hope he does well for the kids. UTA, TCU and SMU continue to land better local transfers. Take away many of the scheduled winnable games and were looking at a losing program. When this staff start reeling in top local talent, others will follow.
  7. I really don't care who the coach is. The overall recruiting has been bad or decent. To your question, this coach is grossly overrated. Mainly because he is often compared to Tony Benford; where you and I would look better. The 20 win season(s) is over-blown due to the cream puff schedule put together to ensure 20 win seasons. (and playing 5 extra games in a tournament most other "left over" programs turn down). No one is a bigger fan of the basketball program than I am and have been. I just refuse to be hoodwinked by the likes of Brett Brett "Associated Press 2018 Star Sportswriter of the Year Award-winner" Vito and others. When it takes nearly 40 games to win 20, the bar has been lowered from previous era's. We are a below .500 program, within a mediocre conference, that falters annually down the stretch when it matters the most. Is it a lack of coaching, talent or both? Certainly, nothing to get excited about from my perspective. For a coach with roots in the metroplex, I don't understand why we have to bring in guys from Russia and other areas of the globe/states when the campus is within 50 miles of the top talent in the country. This guy is over paid and thus, we are stuck with him.
  8. Hopefully the coaching staff responsible for that 2018 signing class and this signing previously, will also show up in the transfer portal.
  9. Yes, I was thinking about JT Hollins who I knew was from Mckinney. I worked with his spouse Bevlan in the financial aide department back then. Thanks for the correction Silver
  10. Bernard Jackson RB (Dallas Carter) Ken Washington, QB (Port Arthur Lincoln) Walter Chapman, NG (Grand Prairie High) Abner Haynes, RB (Dallas Lincoln) Brandon Kennedy, NG (Terrell HS) Jordan Case, QB (Seagoville HS) Burks Washington, LB (Port Arthur) Iseed Khoury, K Kasey Fitzgerald, WR JT Smith, DB (Mckinney HS) Zach Orr, LB (DeSoto U) Stan Thomas DT Woodson, DB (DeSoto U) Michael Pruitt Beasley Reese, DB Johnny Quinn, WR (McKinney) Malcolm Jones, RB (Dallas Carter) Jeffrey Wilson, RB Tony Elliott, DL Toby Gowin Scott Davis, QB (Richardson Berkner)
  11. Who has been the best big man McCasland has recruited to Denton and Arkansas St? Just curious
  12. Teams sometimes don’t want to admit to making a mistake on a draft pick. If a late drafted player is equal in ability to an undrafted player, they may hold on to the drafted guy longer (prior to being cut) for political reasons. Many times, the undrafted guy is just better.
  13. At some point, maybe 5-6 more years from now, folks will finally stop blaming Tony Benford for the failures of this coach. I still can't comprehend how awful that 2018 class was. How can you have 5-6 scholarships available in a year and get zero (0) production out of any of them? Redshirting guys is something rarely done in college basketball. That was the first sign of how bad the class was. This is not a 20 win program; with so many inflated wins over inferior competition. Thank God Benford left behind Ryan Woolridge and Zac Simmons. Additionally, that most teams who were left out of the NCAA's and NIT passed on that CBI joke tournament.
