I think if we were able to comfortably meet Myles where he was at we would have. Do you really think Boals went all in on Mitchell and Ike (your fave) and made the choice to stop pursuing Myles? Doubt it, based on needs. He had a lot of suitors driving up his price.


I think it's entirely possible that Boals gave money to existing players to stay, gave some money to Mitchell and Ike to come, and may have come up a little short on Myles as a result because he misread the market.

How a coach allocates what money he does have is an important part of the job now. He's got to spend it wisely, and I think the assessments here tend to lack a lot of nuance and boil down to "we can't afford that guy" or we can. We spent money last year, but none of us really know how or where it went.





I would say the market demand dictates whether or not we can afford a particular player. Just like most verticals. In the case of Myles, we made it to his top 3 or 5 (I can't remember the exact). This was after we already brought in Ike and Shereef.

I don't think Boals misread the market, but I think Myles got to a price point that we couldn't afford based on his demand and what we had available in funds. Which is what I was initially implying about Braun.

We experienced what the market can do to the cost of premium size, even from a mid-major. We weren't able to go to that level a year ago for whatever reason. It was just out of financial reach.

DJ Burns (Youngstown via Murray State) is in the portal.

Had 14/11 vs the Bobcats plus blocked 3 shots.

Although, would it be out of the realm of possibilities to play bigger next year with AJB at the 2 and Hadaway at the 3? Clayton likes to shoot the 3 more anyway. Might as well let him play stretch 4 at this point and start a true post-presence if we're able to.


Clayton played alongside Wiz for a limited couple of minutes total this year by my unofficial calculations (about right, shabamon?). Did he play at the same time with DWIII the previous season?

I wouldn't mind seeing Hadaway at the 3, Clayton at the 4 and a portal newbie at the 5 except maybe when Ohio is up against teams playing small ball (UT, Kent, e.g).

At the end of the season the MAC is actually ranked behind the Horizon in NET rankings - not that that's the be-all, end-all for a recruit, but a player from the Horizon may be looking for a more upward trajectory. I'd be curious to see some data on how many portaling players actually "level up" and how many for the most part just make a lateral move.

I think eventually we will see GM's getting hired at schools that can afford them. It makes a ton of sense in football as the rosters are much deeper.

Yeah, we're not saying anything different. I just wonder if the cost to get Myles to sign was more than what we offered Myles + what we paid to Cornish and/or Shareef. To me, it's impossible to really measure the job Boals (or any coach) is doing without knowing things like that. Just the reality of where we are.

Which UT-Martin guy? Crews already committed to Mizzou. Damn, that was fast.

Mizzou was winless in the SEC this season. They must have offered him a f--k ton of cash when some real power programs were interested.

If he couldn't get along with Jerry Stackhouse OR Casey Alexander, then *no* there is no chance he would get along with the coach at TSU or Lipscomb.

He's looking to move to a big name program for NIL $$$$ or maybe turn pro is the prevailing thought. His name does show up on some 2025 NBA mock drafts.

That guard from Belmont, Gillespie. That's who we want. He's in the portal.

Noooooooo not the Duke recrcuit...

Not sure where he is going to go considering he is a walkon. Probably going to test market and if he doesn't get any significant takers then likely staying with us or moving down to D2 or D3.

We have reached out to Antwone Woolfolk from Rutgers. He was a classmate with EJ4 at Brush. 6'9" 230+. Good athlete and high FG%. Rebounds per minute are strong.

We have expressed interest in Mekell Burries from D2 Lincoln Memorial

https://twitter.com/ThePortalReport/status/17704247615725...

He is a 6'3'' guard with one year of eligibility remaining. Averaged about 15 ppg and shot 42% from three. Not much of a steals and assists guy. From Newport, KY.

Good find. Nice to see us exploring all levels but yea, this guy doesn’t jump out (but nice to see other schools in mix) a ton to me as filling a need but he has strong shooting numbers with good size. Seems like a 2 at that level?
