    Gilbert is a 4th year PG

    If we would have kept Ollie the loss would have eventually been vacated so we could forget it happened.

    Same Old Syracuse

    They are trying to get people excited about the ACC network. None of the games were on ESPN or ESPN2. I am sure Boeheim was very happy about the scheduling.

    OT: Cole Anthony might be good

    Wow, he scored 34 points. The same number that Syracuse scored in their home opener against UVA.

    UConn in the NBA, 2019/20

    Bazz' shooting has struggled, but he is getting 22 minutes per game with a great assist to turnover ratio (4.5/2) and also grabbing a few rebounds. When he gets his shooting numbers back to historical levels he could be a 10 pt, 5 assist

    OT: Im headed to the Grand Canyon. What would you suggest i see there?

    I think Bobby and Cindy Brady may still be looking for that Native American kid. Pack some hotdogs in your flashlight and see if you can find them

    OT: Visiting Campus

    My son is a freshman at Northeastern. being from Tennessee likely helped, but NEU sells 2 things 1) the co-ops and 2) a decent amount of merit money spread across a large student population as opposed to other schools that focus full ride merit on a few students.

    OT: Visiting Campus has been useful for me in evaluating/comparing schools. They have a nice breakdown where each school ranks in various categories including fields of study.

    The Whaley we saw last night softens this a bit. The loss of another scholarship player this year make the avoidance of injury a necessity.

    OT: Visiting Campus

    Check out Northeastern while there. Nicer campus environment than BU and in same area. We checked out BC. Thought it was nice, but little chance for merit scholarships. Son did not like that there was no guarantee that you won’t be housed on the law school campus as a freshman and have to...

    OT: Visiting Campus

    The elite schools and some a bit below the elite level offer little or no merit aid. The top schools are also very focused on diversity goals. That leaves a massive number of very smart kids to, for lack of a better term, filter down to the next level private, top liberal arts and top publics...

    OT: Visiting Campus

    Just went through the college process with my son last year. He is now a freshman at Northeastern. The campus visits started to be a drag by the end. We got so sick of hearing about the "holistic review" of applications and all the other canned admissions boxes that all seemed to be checking...
