    mbb question for KG clone and cysmydog

    just a list of questions I was thinking about for you two. some you may be able to answer, some you probably can't. I'm more then willing to take best guesses or hints. I like hearing your insight and will most likely come up with more questions later. thanks in advance

    1) What do you think the chances are of taking 2 more in 2010? If we do, will it most likely be due to bad attrition (not renewing a scholly, someone upset about playing time and leaving) or good attrition (brackins going pro, staiger playing for his national team)?

    2) Is the staff thinking they have any shot for gilstrap getting two years or they planning on just the one year?

    3) do you think that even if Brackins is good enough to go pro in 2010 that he may be close enough with barnes to want to play together for a year and go for a NC (if we happen to get barnes of course)

    4) do you think staiger will stay through his senior year or will he go back to germany early

    5) How are we looking with sam thompson from 2011 and what are maybe some other names you can throw out there

    6) Is the main big we are looking at for 2010 kelm or is there maybe someone else out there we are keeping close with (names)?

    7) what do you think are chances are of landing gessell and paige for the 2012 class

    8) what are both your predictions on W-L this season

    1) What do you think the chances are of taking 2 more in 2010? Pretty good chance If we do, will it most likely be due to bad attrition (not renewing a scholly, someone upset about playing time and leaving) or good attrition (brackins going pro, staiger playing for his national team)? There are a lot of ifs right now...it's something that will get looked at after the season. Things like this usually work themselves out.

    2) Is the staff thinking they have any shot for gilstrap getting two years or they planning on just the one year? Can't try and get another year until after his first one.

    3) do you think that even if Brackins is good enough to go pro in 2010 that he may be close enough with barnes to want to play together for a year and go for a NC (if we happen to get barnes of course) My guess is he is gone after three, but we would be scary good if he stayed for all four.

    4) do you think staiger will stay through his senior year or will he go back to germany early He stuck with us this far...don't see any reason for him to leave.

    5) How are we looking with sam thompson from 2011 and what are maybe some other names you can throw out there...Aside from Barnes...2011 class is the most important based on who we lose after the 2010 season. I'll work on finding some names, but many will probably remain nameless.

    6) Is the main big we are looking at for 2010 kelm or is there maybe someone else out there we are keeping close with (names)? Yes and there is always somebody else.

    7) what do you think are chances are of landing gessell and paige for the 2012 class. Good, but we need sometime to see how they will fit...already have Staten, and I'm not sure how or if that changes anything.

    8) what are both your predictions on W-L this season

    Re: mbb question for KG clone and cysmydog

    I don't see any reason why Steiger would leave now. He had every reason to leave last year. Why would he leave early to play in Europe when that was an option last year.

    kg, thanks for taking all that time to answer questions. We all appreciate it (at least most of us).

    Please, no. Great questions, I just don't think there are any solid answers. Anything can happen, especially when we're talking 2-3 years down the line.

    For example, people make a big deal about Shonn Greene's age, how he should go pro (and he should) after this season because he's already twenty-three. Well, Craig turned twenty-one last month, and the NBA clock seems to start a little sooner sometimes than the NFL.

    Re: mbb question for KG clone and cysmydog

    i knew there weren't any solid answers to my questions but why not throw them out there to someone close to the situation to give the fans something to chew on until our next game monday. Their insight and opinions are as close to the situation that I am able to get and I am very happy for any broad answer they are willing to give me

    Ha! I asked the magic ball what the temperature was today....and magically, it said "signs point to yes". I think this is a very useful tool.

    Very good....

    2) Is the staff thinking they have any shot for gilstrap getting two years or they planning on just the one year?
    Same as KG said


    3) do you think that even if Brackins is good enough to go pro in 2010 that he may be close enough with barnes to want to play together for a year and go for a NC (if we happen to get barnes of course)
    Will be good enough to go, but not sure yet if he wants to after Junior year.

    4) do you think staiger will stay through his senior year or will he go back to germany early
    Definitely stay

    5) How are we looking with sam thompson from 2011 and what are maybe some other names you can throw out there
    I've thrown out what I can share.

    6) Is the main big we are looking at for 2010 kelm or is there maybe someone else out there we are keeping close with (names)?
    Yes, and sorry, can't share.

    7) what do you think are chances are of landing gessell and paige for the 2012 class
    Good. NU may be a player for Gesell, and it depends on how they fit in with the team. Hopefully Staten grows some more, because than he would be a wing that can think and handle like a point.

    8) what are both your predictions on W-L this season
    .

    So you're saying I have a chance?

    Thanks for all of your valuable input in this thread, aclone.

    Good questions, thedayafter. I enjoyed reading their responses. I can't get enough basketball talk right now.

    What, you'd rather I ask, "In the light of Chris Colvin's signing, is there any chance that Chim Kadima will rethink his decision?"
