    So you expect a guy who averaged 10 and 4 at a low level basketball school to transfer to a Big 12 program and average the same amount of points and possibly more rebounding? That is strange. Someone rated my post as dumb and my post is more accurate than others like you saying he will average the same amount of points and rebounds.

    I agree that is hard to expect much from such an unknown and from someone who has played at a lower level and wasn't a great recruit but other guys have come in and surprised so he could to. Just have to wait and see. I hope he surprises, though.

    That is a pretty big ask and you seem to be drinking way to much Kool Aid. He is a decent player. Not a 10 and 4 in a major conference guy. He will fill a Talley type roll on the team.

    How many practices have you been able to attend to watch Johnson?

    Just as he can't be certain about a good output, you can't be certain of a sub par output.

    He is not a red shirt freshman. Dude has two year of college under his belt. You can actually go out and watch the kid play college games if you want to find it. He averaged 10 and 4 at a low level basketball school. I don't need to see someone practice. Practice don't mean crap. Lot's of guys (Alex Thompson) are practice hero's. Someone can go ahead and post the Allen Iverson video now.

    I'm just basing it off what I've heard and seen. They thought Nixon would be better than he has been. Jacobson was way better his first year than they expected though so I don't think you can bank on what you hear either way but generally if you here positive buzz about a sit out it pans out. Jacobson is the only one I didn't hear much of that panned out. I expect him to be better than Talley

    I don't know how they thought Nixon was going to be good.

    Several. I have a friend whose kid plays at Arkansas State so I have seen him play. I also watch the American East conference a ton also since I have a nephew that plays in that conference. So in my opinion there is no way he comes in and averages 10 and 5.

    Defense mostly. He never shot well when I saw him though so I'm not sure why they were somewhat high on him

    If he fills just a Talley role then we won’t win more than 6 games in the conference next year. He needs to be a Big 12 starter and that is what the staff is banking on. We’ll see.

    I was insanely pissed when they signed him two years ago. I will never understand why we did a 2 for one with him.
