Bless, maybe the last member of the old racer guard. I talked to him and Benny in cracker barrel about 6 years ago.

Well this is, interesting, to use a milder adjective than I'm thinking.

Men's Basketball / Email to season ticket holders
August 06, 2020, 04:21:09 PM
The following is the content of a mass email to season ticket holders. Forgive the sloppiness of the text but it didn't care for being copy and pasted from email to RN and I'm not taking the time to correct it:

An important letter from Kevin Saal

This letter was mailed to all 19-20 MBB season ticket holders yesterday.  We just want to make sure everyone gets an opportunity to read.

Dear Mr. Smith,
I trust this email finds you safe and healthy during this unprecedented and challenging time. As a Racer Basketball season ticket holder, this letter is intended to provide you with updates regarding our current status and anticipated direction in the weeks to come, recognizing that due to the pandemic, this is a very fluid situation.
On Thursday, July 23, we announced the Racer Basketball season ticket renewal due date extension to Monday, August 24. This was done in our best effort to accommodate season ticket holders desiring to make educated decisions regarding their 2020-21 season tickets. Our goal with this communication is to provide you with more detailed information as we approach the upcoming basketball season.
As we assess our current environment, and to the best of our ability predict future circumstances, we are preparing for the following scenarios:
1.   Standard Season – executing a typical Racer Basketball season between November and March.
2.   Altered Season – an adjusted schedule which may include an altered start (early or delayed) or an amended schedule based upon decisions made at the national, league and/or local level.
3.   Canceled Season
At this point in time we do NOT anticipate a canceled season; as a result, we remain focused on planning and preparations for scenarios 1 & 2. However, in the event of a canceled season, season ticket holders will have the ability to donate both the value of their ticket and the seat donation to the Racer Club, which supports 320+ student-athletes. This gift (both the value of the ticket and donation) will be recognized as 100% tax-deductible and season ticket holders will be rewarded with Racer Club Priority points at five (5) times the standard giving level (15 points per $100 unrestricted donation).
As we've all seen in recent months the resocialization requirements vary based upon federal, state and local assessments of our progress with the pandemic. In order for us to be fully prepared to meet potential requirements in place, on or about the start of the basketball season, we are preparing three different CFSB Center seating models:
1.   Standard Seating & Capacity – normal basketball seating model where season ticket holders receive tickets for their standard seat locations and the full CFSB Center capacity (8,600) will be utilized. At this point in time, given status of the pandemic, this model is highly unlikely.
2.   Limited Capacity – normal basketball seating model where season ticket holders could either receive tickets for their standard seat locations, or choose to move (for one year only) to a socially distanced seating section, and only a designated percentage (i.e. 50%) of the CFSB Center will be utilized. The percentage will be set by state and local health officials based upon our current status with the health crisis.
3.   Social Distancing – significantly altered basketball seating model where season ticket holders will be contacted in Racer Club Priority Point rank order, to select their seats. During seat selection/assignment process, Murray State Athletics officials will ensure two empty seats between family groups (i.e. accounts) left and right; and an empty/vacant row between seated rows. Our goal in this model, is to accommodate all season ticket holders within the building, however, it may not be in their traditional seats for this one season.
While highly unlikely at this point, best case scenarios involve either the "Standard Seating & Capacity" or "Limited Capacity" models, because they allow season ticket holders to occupy their normal seat locations or relocate prior to the season (for one season) if they so choose. It is important to understand, any atypical solution is currently intended to be in place only for the 2020-21 season, after which, Murray State Athletics, through consultation with local and state health officials, will revert back to the standard seating configuration where, in most cases, season ticket holders will have access to their historical seat locations.
Should season-ticket holders choose not to renew for 2020-21, the following options will be available:
1.   Full Donation – season ticket holders may donate both the cost of their ticket and the seat donation to the Racer Club. This gift will be recognized as 100% tax deductible, season ticket holders will be rewarded with Racer Club Priority points at four (4) times the standard giving level (12 points per $100 unrestricted donation) and your seat location will be held for the 2021-22 season.
2.   Partial Donation – season ticket holders may donate only the amount equal to their standard seat donation, to the Racer Club. This gift will be recognized as 100% tax deductible, season ticket holders will be rewarded with Racer Club Priority points at the standard rate (3 points per $100 unrestricted donation) and seat locations will be held for the 2021-22 season.
3.   No Payment/Full Refund –In this model, season-ticket holders will be refunded the cost of their tickets and seat donations, if the season is cancelled. In this model, traditional seat locations are not guaranteed to be held (i.e. remain available) for the 2021-22 season.
Recognizing you may have questions regarding the upcoming season, and your account, please don't hesitate to call (270.809.3000) or visit the Murray State Athletics Ticket Office (CFSB Center Lower A external ticket window) between 8:30am-4:00pm Monday-Friday.
During these unprecedented times, it's important that we communicate with great clarity and transparency. Equally important is our ability to support one another during these challenging circumstances. Your support is critical to our 320+ student-athletes, over one-third of whom are first-generation college students, and their development as students, persons, players and eventual professionals. Your support provides the means through which we develop people, maximize educational opportunities and compete for championships. On behalf of the 420+ individuals represented in the Murray State University Athletics Department, we wish your family well.
Take care and Go Racers!

Every drive he led I expected a score lol. I wish he had played 4 full seasons dang it. For comparison Hodges at Samford was a 4 year starter/5th year player.

This Ish is about money... this article states that the plan is for there to be in person fall classes at Arizona, but their prez thinks fall and winter sports will be postponed until 2021 spring unless they can have no contact... what a bunch of rubbish, so you are saying the thinking is that it will be safe to have people living in tiny dorm rooms together and then going to crowded lecture halls, but heaven forbid the football players tackle each other? If this happens it is about the NCAA and universities wanting to wait until it's more likely that they can fill their stadiums and get ticket revenue than caring about the health of their student athletes.  Just my opinion, but it sounds super fishy to me.

Quote from: smidge34 post_id=181398 time=1587652803 user_id=45I don't think murraygrad thought that out lol. Nobody in Cam's position - projected lottery — was staying another year to develop lol. He looks ready now to me and is performing at about as high a level as I expected last I saw him play.

Sorry I haven't been able to defend my post before now.  Crazy world right now...

Anyways, I never thought Cam had the skill set yet when he played here to go to that next level.  That's why I was highly shocked when he was touted as highly as he was.  With that being said, it definitely did not help that he got drafted to a team with a point guard already set in place that played 95% of minutes.  When Cam did play, he looked like a child among men.  But yes I will agree if a 6 or 7 figure check was waving in front of my face I'd have a trail of smoke behind me getting outta town.  

He seems to have tweaked his awkward shot a bit and is playing better.
