9 new faces for 2018.
« on: April 05, 2018, 07:13:03 pm »

Anybody think after year 7 that Mike would be bringing in 9 new players. Completely new roster. Lol.  How did this happen?

Crazy.  I hope it works out but what's the odds?  Even Kentucky doesn't bring in these numbers.

Juco and grad transfer haven't been here, have no idea what if or anything they could bring. With MA track record, it says not much. Hall and Jones were known commodities that you would anticipate to be even better next season.

Our NC bunch brought in 7 their sweet 16 season

Nolan's #1 ranked class had 10 in it.

It happens.

Should be good times ahead, players from basket to three point line, that's what's makes a team,  it is obvious the future looks much better than any post Nolan years. The problem with many is the stereotyping of Mike which is just negative mentality.

Guess you don't understand what known commodity is. You KNEW what each brought and what each needed to improve on. The guys coming in aren't ranked high enough that most believe that they can just step in and play at this level, fact is their rankings indicate that most of them are believed to not be anything resembling a game changer, more like a role player that might develop into a solid contributor in time.

itís because he could only go to a D2 school before, he qualified for D1 recently with his grades I believe. Averaging 20 points as a freshman, that is better than Macon and Barford their freshman year at JUCO

I donít hate Mike. I think heís a great guy. Thatís not the same as saying heís a great coach. Lots or good people arenít great at their jobs. Since we know heíll be here then of course I hope he does well in the future here. Also ask yourself why we always are told to wait on the new recruits to get here.

Reggie Chaney looks like he could walk on the court and be 10 and 6 from day 1.

Both had issues we will ever hear about.

Weíre those ďissuesĒ worse than passing counterfeit money, or failing multiple drug tests over several seasons or several fights at clubs? You could at least do those and remain on the team. Seems to me youíre just trying to disparage these two, to protect Mike for why they are transferring without any proof they had ďissuesĒ.

You might want to double check your spin on this one. UCA is a DI b-ball school.

Thanks for guessing youíve won an Amazon gift card to Victoriaís Secret. Iím sure your panties are in a knot and could use a few extra ones. Chaney is rated higher than Hall was and Henderson is also. I think both will fill in just fine. Same goes for Joe vs Jones

Correct me if I am wrong, but by then Nolan had been to the final 4 3 times, including a NC and a runner up.

Also, I was told in another thread we are not supposed to compare Mike to Nolan, which I have no problem with because Mike sure ain't Nolan.

Today's paper says he averaged 15.5 points per game as a freshman, which rounds to 20 I guess. And it says his only other current offer is UCA.

Yeah most players ranked outside of the top 100 typically become 10 and 6 type players as freshman. No concerns here, history is on our side.

The last time Arkansas had 9 new faces on the men's basketball team, the team totally tanked that season and certain members of this board raked that coach over the coals unmercifully for it the next 2 years until he was finally run off. I wonder if they'll give Mike the same treatment if this year's team tanks? I doubt it for obvious reasons.

Watching Joe, Sills, Chaney play and knowing what Gafford can do.  I am honestly not worried about the team tanking.

Do i think we are a final 4 contender? no i do not, but they will be talented and will win enough games to at least get their foot in the door of the big dance IMHO.

Nolan went to a sweet 16 and then back to back NC championship games with a group that had 6 newcomers. The roster had 11 guys with only 1 year of experience or less.

Corliss, Scotty, Beck, Stewart, Crawford, Craig Tyson were the newcomers.

Corliss was considered by most as the No. 1 player coming into college his freshman year. See anything resembling that on the current group coming in?

Yes there was a strong core of players also returning with experience, Darrel Hawkins a senior who had played in the system 4 years. Clint Mcdaniel a sophomore who had a year experience under his belt, Warren Lynn a senior who had 4 years in the system, and Davor Rimac a sophomore in his second season. None of those guys were stars but they were a good foundation of talent to help the incoming class. Don't see anything like that on the current roster to help what we have coming in. We have basically ONE player returning to try and build around.
