    So you think Saba and Howard would both foul out in a total of 10 minutes?

    With the number of mystery fouls GT seems to rack up, I wouldn’t bet against it.

    To answer your question: of course not.

    Supposedly, the the proposed "One Free Transfer" for every player-rule is likely to be ratified for this year's transfers. Anybody know when the final vote on that is going to take place?

    If for some reason, the rule does not pass, then Howard will have to sit a year.

    It was originally supposed to be voted on this Spring. Not sure that is going to happen now.

    one issue they hadn't resolved with it the last time I read about it is whether it would go into effect immediately or be phased in at a future date.

    I think the effect of COVID-19 is going to have some positive effect on this issue. They are going to have to figure out the "how do we give kids an extra year" question and they are going to DEFINITELY have kids who want to come back but don't have a role on the team to come back to.
    • Think about the QB who has a young stud behind him.
    • Or the One and Done kids who want to come play a year of basketball but don't want to sit behind a now 5th or 6th year senior
    I think they are going to HAVE to address the ability of kids to move penalty free because of all the complexity and it doesn't make sense that they would hash out a partial solution for this.

    The answer for this is pretty simple. They are not going to approve of the extra year for winter sports.

    I will be surprised if they approve an extra year for winter sports either.

    no offers out of HS so...
    Toppin opted to enroll at Mt. Zion Preparatory School in Baltimore, Maryland for a postgraduate year. He averaged 17 points, eight rebounds and four assists and also grew four inches to 6'9.

    I was hoping for a GRAD transfer big man that really could be a solid factor in the middle.Now we have 3 wishing/hoping types at best probably..

    You have actual specific individuals or just the unicorn in your head that you were hoping for?

    If you check the transfer portal and filter by immediate eligibility you'll see there are only 2 PF/C available. Pastner still has 2 spots available if something opens up, but at this point it's unlikely they will get a big that can contribute right away. Best case scenario is one of the new guys comes in balling.

    Geesh, like its my fault that we need a big man and none are available--I was also hoping that we wouldn't have a coach fired, no embarrassment from a law suit and ,last but not least , PROBATION,etc --oh, if we didn't have these things maybe I wouldn't have to wish for a better big and a tourney bid now

    No, but what is your fault is hoping for us to land something that isn't there while simultaneously downplaying what we are bring in just to further your doom and gloom outlook. We're bringing in a top 100 7 footer in Gigiberia and Howard is 6-11, 245 and similarly rated to Lammers. We have a big man coach who has proven time and time again to be able to develop bigs, especially defensively, having our center on the all defensive team all four years, with neither of them having done much prior to their time working with him.
