Sad. Have to wonder what could have been.

I had a friend who was a janitor at MIT, solved unsolvable math problems, told good apple related jokes. Haven’t seen him in years. Similar to Joe I guess.

That's because you got canned more than tuna, beatch.

I heard the CIA, NASA, and heist crews recruit people like that. Maybe he ended up with one of them. No way to know for sure I guess.

Please forget this convo happened...I have been vaccinated so government knows what I read. Let’s just say my friend Sedward Nowden hasn’t reached out lately.

Most all high end programs cheat to some extent. If you haven't figured that out yet and are cool being naive about it more power to you.
Mpls consistently says every kid that commits anywhere is being paid. Besides Minnesota.

I’m sure most programs commit infractions. Some are meaningless. Most are not handing kids $100,000

Spell out the top 10 programs over the last decade and point out which ones cheated. That vindicates the ones that did not. Simply pointing at a group and saying most of them cheated lumps them in with the cheaters. People really close to the game know very well who runs clean programs. Journalists from Forbes, NY times, Washington Post have done stories about it. Other coaches praise it openly.

No I don't, actually.

"Most programs". In the NCAA DI? Correct, of course. Most of those don't have boosters, let alone boosters with $100k burning a hole in their pocket.

In the P5, even there you have a lot of programs piddling around, struggling to get any kind of consistent success. Minnesota, for example.

At the top of the P5? Absolutely, they all are to varying degrees. Except Wisconsin and Virginia, of course.

Strong-ass offers.

per Shooter:

Johnson and Gophers football coach P.J. Fleck were together on a Zoom call to Cretin-Derham Hall’s Tre Holloman at his South St. Paul home last weekend. Both coaches impressed Holloman.

Departed Gophers basketball coach Richard Pitino was the first to offer the 6-foot-2, 165-pound junior point guard a scholarship that remains available. Fleck has also offered a tender to the safety-wideout, who’ll probably move to cornerback if he plays football in college.

Meanwhile, Oregon State last week was the latest among a substantial list of schools offering a football tender. It’s Holloman’s plan to play basketball and football in college. Academically, he’s a 3.0 student. This summer, he’ll play basketball in the Howard Pulley AAU program. His favorite sport? Whichever season it is.

Holloman has no favorites as to colleges yet and remains in listening mode. That will change when recruiting visits begin.


Go Gophers!!

Only way he's going to simultaneously play football and basketball, for multiple years, is if he goes to a place like Mankato State.

Gophers will never let him play both, long term. They might get him in the door initially saying he can, but they'll force him to choose within a year.

Yep, he's going to have to choose. No way he's missing practices or even a game for one team in November. Playing both will put him behind guys from other teams that have full practice and development time.

that would be a fun call to listen to. Unless he is going to play both sports, I have no idea the strategy PJ and Ben would take

Kansas, UNC, Kentucky, Duke, Ohio State, Baylor, Indiana, Memphis, Michigan

That is just for starters. Might be more like last 20 years.

What list would have Indiana, Memphis and Ohio State in a top 10 of the last decade?

Duke, North Carolina, Virginia, Gonzaga, Baylor, Kansas, Michigan, Michigan State, Kentucky, Villanova would be my top 10 of the last decade, with Wisconsin probably 11th. I'd say at least 7 or 8 of those are slightly shady or worse.

Exactly, and its much different type of conditioning. I played both at D3 level and it was a terrible transition from a conditioning standpoint, which everyone else playing is already adjusted to. Granted he's a far better athlete than I, but it is still a heavy transition on multiple levels.

Even though he's a better overall athlete (no offense haha) he's also playing against the same caliber of athletes. Unless you're at the Lebron level and can sacrifice a few months of practice you aren't going to step into the gym and be a difference maker.

Edit: Lebron is an extreme example...I'll change my comment to 1 and done type of talent.

Which sport is he better at? I would think that would be nearly impossible to play both but that was the idea for Suggs at MN. Is the only way Tre comes to MN is if he can play both? Fleck doing Johnson a favor?
