    Never fails. Anytime someone writes that quote from the movie Animal House on here it goes over someone's head and they point out the Germans didn't bomb Pearl Harbor. The record is still running.

    The movie came out 40 years ago so the answer to your question is "50 and under" ... you'd know them as the colonoscopy-free generation.

    We are still in the race for Bamba. KO and crew seeing him today. We are also one of the few schools that got him to visit us (unofficial over the summer).

    Very few people know what school he is leaning towards, but what we do know is that he has visited campus, he has spoken very highly of his relationship with KO, and KO and staff have watched a ton of his games.

    Anyone who says he was never coming here has no clue what they are taking about.

    Hope you are right. I gave up on Bamba a long time ago but would love a Bamba gift. I'm thinking that KO and staff are there to primarily see Diallo. You never know we have had surprise commitments before.

    Going 3 deep for Diallo most likely.

    I mean, I like the optimism about Bamba, but it's not hard to read that tweet and connect the dots over who we're there to see. Not a coincidence that we're going 3 deep for Diallo, just convenient that Bamba is also there even though there's no chance of that happening anymore

    There was meaningful optimism about bamba over the summer, then it dried up. He visited campus and listed us for a reason.

    edit: staff could be there for cam reddish too.

    Yeah, I think it's wrong to say that we never had a shot, but it's pretty clear at the moment that Bamba is not coming to UConn.

    We're not done recruiting Bamba, but yes it is unlikely.

    Did we pump the brakes? I get that Diallo was priority number 1 but why wasn't Bamba 1a? Just curious.

    Wasn't told, you'd think he would be 1a.

    But the Germans didn't bomb Pearl Harbor. I remember from history, it was some other country.

    Us, Michigan, Texas, and Harvard are considered the finalists.

    Rumors are going around that Shaka may have the inside track - I believe I read a piece behind a paywall a few weeks ago that spoke to that.

    Bamba's recruitment has been extremely quiet, don't think anyone knows where he is going.

    kid is way under the radar no one knows what's going on with his recruiting. But we did not make his final five even though we went and watched him the other day I think we're out

    Bamba's body and game remind me a lot of the Clint Capela kid in Houston.
