I'm glad JC didn't take the bait and get upset. Reporters are looking for stories so they are hoping to get under the skin of coaches hoping they go off.

Funny thing is that giffey might have been the main reasons we lost him. There games are very different

Yeah but he makes the statement:

While the arrival of Smith (who committed in January, 2010 ... Niels Giffey didn't commit until a few weeks after Harkless had de-committed) may have played a role in Harkless's departure, it's safe to say there was more to it than that. No doubt, the controversy swirling around the UConn program at the time played a role.

That statement is a conclusion on his part that is far from conclusive. The people close to Harkless are going to spin things in a way to not make the kid look bad and Borges considers this in the statement he makes at the end of his blog. So either he was sloppy or he is choosing to go after both parties. Either way it's a non story, unless UConn struggles this year and every reporter brings up the RG issue.

Can't blame Harkless for his decision. If you were predicting the future back then, we had a lot of question marks - probation, JC retirement, etc., and there was no way of knowing we'd be defending national champs. St. John's had a class of nine seniors graduating and had a good chance for him to get immediate playing time. Plus, he stayed close to home.

Anybody want to bet a few bucks with El Prezident-ay that JC is going to clamp the duck down on Harkless when we play them? Hmmm?

I'll give you 2 to 1 odds Moe don't make his season average when he plays us.;)
