    I used to ask this question, so I'll go easy on you. If there was an update on him, it would've been posted.

    Then you hit big leagues with some insider contacts. Just curious, and this might sound a little mocking but i'm genuinely interested, did you like it more when you got your info early or when it was relayed to you by other insiders on here?

    Haha sorry if I wasn't clear, what I meant was did you like it more when you got recruiting info second hand a la 99 or tcf, etc. Or now that you get it personally from your sources and you relay it to the rest of us.

    Top 247 has him at #9. The composite has him at #68. Don't think I've ever seen such a discrepancy for a top 10 player, but there must be an explanation.

    Ricky and Rip should visit him and show him their rings.

    Kentucky's not after him so we have a chance.....Actually, Kentucky lets these schools burn up their recruiting budgets and beat each other up and then like the leader of a pride of lions comes in once the kill is made and eats first.

    Considering how wrong my source has been lately, I think I appreciate the other insiders on the board more.

    You could say the other schools are cheetahs, who put in all the legwork making the kill, then get bullied off of it when they try to eat.

    "Osse, meantime, listed Oregon, Michigan State, Arizona State, Miami, Illinois, Indiana, Florida and St. John’s as the schools working the hardest." I'd like to see us working the hardest for somebody. Maybe we are for Jalen Carey. If you're only working the hardest for one guy, you'd better get that guy.

    Scratch another one off the list that many were saying was one of our 3 or 4 priority recruits for 2018.

    The latest UCONN Tragicomedy continues.

    We have supposedly great recruiters who are getting hammered by LSU, Providence, the Johnnies, and the Hall.

    Providence, Miami, and Oregon lately have been on the rise with a few recruits we have lost out on.

    Defending "this" before you see who we get is just as stupid as casting aspersions on it before seeing who we obtain. Let the recruiting cycle play out before killing the staff. We are still in a seemingly good place with multiple 2018 recruits and could still be in it for dort. Recruiting is "fluid". One week we have no shot for sid Wilson the next we lead, the next we don't. Let this stuff play out first. You'd think this board would have learned its lesson by now

    To the rescue of what? What am I defending? If we end up with jalen Carey over dort I'm good. We weren't getting both..Now if we miss on both, have at it. But can we wait see what happens first? Thats unreasonable?

    Plus it appears Carey is the one we really wanted anyways. We have prioritized him so I agree let's see it play out before we say doom for 2018

    Eventually, even this one will realize that something's very, very wrong.

    Until then, he'll just keep flailing and pretending that the problem is here.

    Doubt it, he headlines the group that thinks the problems are all boneyard related.
