Im in the same mindset- I dont think that CMM would jeopardize the chemistry in the locker room for a "legacy". If he is recruiting him hard (and it sure seems that he is) then he must want him pretty bad.

And as for the scholarship situation- there is no guarantee that we dont need to fill the spot of a guy who leaves to go to the NBA.

I have no problem with the Racers oversigning by one or sometimes even two players. The NCAA allows programs to oversign by two. You just have to be under the scholarship limit by the time the school year starts. The overwhelming majority of the programs have at least 1 player transfer annually, and the national average is about 2. This summer there were more than 700 players in the transfer portal, and there were 353 Division 1 basketball programs. Those numbers don't include kids that leave early to turn pro. The number of transfers is growing each year, and that's not likely to change in the near future. To me the only problem with oversigning every year is the appearance that you're running kids off annually, which can be used as a negative against a program in recruiting.

Sometimes relationships which seemed like a potentially perfect romance in the beginning, turn out all wrong for one or both parties. Nobody had a crystal ball turned on in the beginning and it’s pretty standard and accepted that a scholarship is for one academic year. It just is whether we like that fact or not.

LOL Smidge, not sure if the first part of that post was from your personal experience but I can relate to that.

In years past as the season progresses we could reasonably predict who would not be back. At this point this year I dont think we can nor should we. Playing time will be a battle this year but chances are there will be a few that don’t get a lot. I guess it’s a moot point until we hear how the Vandy visit goes for Sivills. It certainly appears CMM is all in on him.

HUGE!!!! We are indeed in special times! I think the deep NCAA tournament run we all want so badly is coming... Dark times for the rest of the OVC as when you look at the level of talent between last years freshman, this years incoming class and now this recruiting class, I can't wait to see the ride we are all about to get to go on. Did he cancel his Vandy visit? I thought that was supposed to be this weekend?

I’d have gone for the tour and free weekend in Nashville lol. Safe to assume he won’t be visiting the Commodores.

PS yes it would suck to be a fan of another program lol. We are blessed.

Hah, I assumed he won't be visiting them any longer, I was more curious if I was wrong and he had in fact already made the visit during the week or something. I will say that him opting to skip that free weekend and visit of Vandy to commit to Murray is quite the feather in the cap of our staff and great indication of where this program is right now.

Glad we didn’t run CMM out of town after his first two years weren’t up to par.

It was a group effort (Matt included) getting us to the low point we were at talent wise. That was it plain and simple, the program dropped the ball after the top-10 season and recruited like we were SIUe. Now we are recruiting as high as we ever have and the results will speak for themselves.
