I just hope he plays a game/ season for us. I have a bad feeling about the situation. Hope I’m wrong.
I think Hurley will be able to convince him.

Calipari got Diallo to play a year when it looked like he might just be the 1st player to not even play in an official college game after practicing the semester.

I thought he was expected to return later this month or early next, no? Did a recent re-evaluation conclude otherwise, or are you speculating?
Speculating but I don't think basketball is in his future, really stinks for the kid.

From UConn Insider Podcast released today, it sounds like Diarra has not progressed well recently and will not see him any time soon. My interpretation is I doubt we see him this year and you can speculate how'd you like about next year and so on.

"on Pace"


hate that.

Just frickin enroll. Or let us know when enrolled.

all a statement like "on Pace" does is set you up for another classic UConn kick in the 'nads.

this is why the sid at the 4 argument doesn't work either- he weighs 20 lbs less than akok. hopefully akok is at 215 to start next season.
Sid needs to be improving his shot.
If we have learned nothing in the last 5 years at least we should have learned that the college game requires shooters ( from the 3 line) everywhere except possibly the 5 or you can’t run offense even with great guards. The ability to slash is a secondary bi-product of your team’s shooting.

Plus at first glance it kind of looks like he's enrolling at Pace now, which earned a momentary ?! from me.
This would be absolutely All Time. I'm chuckling at the board just thinking about it.

We simply do not get guarantees right now. Even posters above speculating Akok will never play; they are being fools, but I do think they are serious.

He's rolling his eyes because all this Akok to the NBA stuff was just noise. Boneyard chicken-little-ism. Not happening any time soon, and as long as his enrollment continues 'on Pace' @August_West, he's suiting up next year.

We got a bunch next year, so I'm not worried. Obviously hope Sid improves his shot, but there's a place for an athletic slasher/rebounder/defender even if the shot ain't all that--see Diallo at UK. As long as you have shooters. Next year, we've got a ton, finally.

Sal and a physio should be his 2 best friends starting Jan 20. Speaking of which, why can't he enroll in one of those 'intersession' classes and get him on the court
Just taking a guess here, but perhaps that wouldn't make him a full-time student since he didn't take any classes last semester? idk

I think that guy was speculating about Mamadou, not Akok. He doesn't quote a post, but his came right after a post asking about Diarra.

I believe that would be Achef on pace.
Sure... a cook, a chef, tomato, tomato.

Not sure why my post was deleted though. I don't think there's anything inappropriate about it.
