    I can't believe we are still talking about this. There was never a real reason to think he'd be eligible.
    Didn't you mean one game? on Buggs
    Agreed, until a lot of people were declared eligible with less reason by the NCAA. Pitt not cooperating is the only reason he wasn't declared eligible imo At the very least the decisions do seem random.

    He was the star of the M&G scrimmage one year - dont we wish it had been the entire year? (One of my favorite sarcastic Pitino quotes pertained to CB watching the NCAA Tournament. "I'm very impressed - had no idea he was interested in basketball")
    Not that I dont look for good things from Carr.
    And not that the NCAA's decisions haven't always seemed random. If only we'd known to have that woman write papers for everyone in the class, I think we'd been ok.

    Built says the criteria was not met by Carr. Nothing to do with Pitt!!!!

    The ncaa is corrupt. Ncaa rules and criteria are meant to be broken and ignored. By some. M

    Actually i posted that Pitt may have had something to do with it. Read the NCAA transfer process. Always do research to get the info you can, always.

    Always see reality. Always.

    The ncaa and the process you reference is as corrupt as any process can be. This is proven correct repeatedly.

    Believe the ncaa all you want.

    It’s essentially the same as the mshsl process for immediate transfer eligibility.
    I would rather them go back to hardly ever granting waivers.

    No worries. This spring at the coaches convention they will pass that if your coach leaves or is fired then players can transfer without sitting out. All that will be left then are the guys that just want to change schools and that will still be the largest category but those will be sitting one year.

    Ah, missed it. I was referring to...was it the Iowa game?....where he had like 17 points in the first half, plus ya know blocked a shot, got rebounds, made a pass he normally couldn't etc....and was just generally a fantasy begging the question of who is this guy? Maybe there was another flash minute in another game somewhere but except for all the head scratching negative plays he was invisible for much of the year...anyway, that's my memory of his season on the court.

    Pitino can be awesome with quotes! That's a keeper for sure.

    Oh great, just in time to screw Minnesota again.

    Yes, I'd forgotten that game.
    The crazy thing is that he was invisible before he got here too - it was impossible to find anything more than a small mention of him & where he was playing on the web.
    I often wondered if he was having absence seizures. They're very hard to diagnose, and his behavior seemed so inexplicable.

    When it comes to next year, I certainly hope Marcus Carr is the savior at PG everyone is praying for.

    Very doubtful with Murphy gone. He would have been the perfect complementary piece for this year's team but next year we will need someone to step up at the 4.

    A healthy Curry and Oturu will make for a very good front court. Depth is a concern until we sign another big guy, but our starting lineup should be good.
