    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    This has been done. SEASON has not even started. THE glass is half full or jump off the clip. No need to hash this out!

    Re: McD's lost players

    Stinson and Blaylock announced plans to leave for the NBA before Wayne was fired....thus: he didn't lose them.

    McD hasn't been fired yet! I assume you mean Wayne.

    I think there is every reason to hash this out.... At what point do we start judging McDermot's players and hold someone accountable?

    Can you really count Stinson, Blaylock, Carr, and Taggart? I mean, they weren't really McDermott's. They left with Morgan more than they stayed to find out about McDermott.

    Blalock and Stinson planned to leave, but Blalock did seem to ponder coming back for a little while after Mac was hired.

    Good point but the timing with Luccas injury seems a bit bad.

    I think you can count all of them except Stinson, he had his mind made up. Kids stay with coaching changes all the time, much more often then they transfer. The biggest loss, and one that had most to gain by staying, of that group may have been Farnold Deagand though.

    Re: McD's lost players

    Taylor was let go for his own good - he even admitted it!!! He messed up and McDermott did the best thing.

    As for Wes, he decided he didn't like how he was treated with his injury (or something). Hey, he basically decided he wanted to go somewhere else. McDermott tried to talk to him, but he wouldn't listen. I don't really know what else McDermott could have done.
