    Scholarships

    Can anyone for sure tell me the scholarship status of Haluska, Peterson and Thompson? I want to say the first two will be on scholarship this year, but I'm not sure, and I want to update my little longterm roster.

    Thanks

    I know, there was some mention of Haluska and Thompson being on scholarship. Did we just give away our last one for 2008? Thanks!

    Re: Scholarships

    There's 11 confirmed on Scholarship in 08 not counting Peterson, Haluska or Thompson. There's also 11 confirmed for '09, which makes me think that we may very well be done recruiting for '08, unless we want to take 0 or 1 players in '09.

    I could very easily see us being done, giving Peterson and Haluska schollies for 07 and 08, and making sure we have two available for 09.

    I'm pretty sure that's the case.

    Re: Scholarships

    the haluska/petersen thing could be like the thompson situation where mcdermott is willing to put them on scholarship for a year but if he feels that there is a position or a player that we need that we will give that scholarship away

    Re: Scholarships

    Both Haluska and Thompson will be gone before '10... so are we seriously done for '08 if Haluska is on scholarship? This would disappoint me.

    Re: Scholarships

    Don't forget that Schollies are one year deals. GMac may well have said to Haluska who walked on, I have an extra ship this year and will pay your way this year, but not committed beyond. Similar to his Thompson deal where ship if available but no guarantees.

    Thing is though we already have 11 scholarships spoken for for 09, when all three of those guys are gone. We take another 08 guy and we have just one left for 09.

    In dream - every member of the team stays from year to year....somebody is always unhappy for some reason (probably a direct result of only being allowed to play 5 at one given time)....lets worry about 07-08 first.

    Re: Scholarships

    Yeah, not to sound like a pessimist, but I highly doubt everybody that we have committed will be around for 2010. You tend to lose a few guys along the way to transfers. It happens. I hope McDermott starts to lessen our current rate some though. It's been brutal around here lately.

    Re: Scholarships

    If Peterson and Haluska are good enough to earn and keep a scholarship, that probably means Brister and Boozer aren't Big 12 quality. And if that is true, they won't be willing to sit on the bench for 4 years. It will all work out. Eustachy and Floyd existed for several years with 8-10 scholarship players and turned out a few fairly good teams. Now we are bothered by too many players?
