Niner National

Charlotte Lands top 150 player for 2010

16 posts in this topic

You an incoming freshman? If so, join Niner Nation Gold. They'll be doing a bus trip to Knoxville for the Tennessee game this year. There are also food and beverages provided to members before home games. It's worth the 20 dollars.

You didn't quote anyone so I'm not sure if this was directed at me or not. Anyway, I'm not a freshman I graduated in '03. Just looking forward getting out and watching some games with decent talent for a change.

Great. Now can they get out of the A10 ASAP?

Football will have to come first. If people buy the FSL's, football will come. If football comes, the Big East is a likely destination after the next conference realignment.

A10 is the best conference for basketball outside of the Big 6 conferences the most consistently. The league has quite a quite a bit of talent committed for the upcoming season and the 2010 season. A lot of top 150 players (Rivals list) have committed or have a good shot at landing in the A-10 this coming season and in 2010. St. Joe's alone signed one top 50 guy, one top 100 guy, and one top 150 guy for the 2010 class. Xavier's recruiting hasn't slacked off at all since Sean Miller's departure for Arizona. Dayton, Charlotte, and UMass have all stepped it up in a big way as well. Hell, even LaSalle pulled in a top 30 player for the 2009 class. Charlotte is starting to get back to the level of recruiting they were at when they were in C-USA.

I want to get out of the A-10 as badly as anyone else, and so does anyone else who has interest in Charlotte athletics, but it sadly won't happen unless the school starts to take the football effort more seriously. They announced that they would seek to add football and then nothing else has really been heard since. Supposedly they are supposed to be starting a big advertising push in July, so maybe that will help. The program needs a face that people know to get behind the football push in order for it to be a draw to casual supporters. There has already been one 7 figure donation for football, but the donor and amount have not been announced.

Apparently this kid has reopened his recruitment. Sucks for Charlotte.

Saw this today. Hopefully he decides to stay with Charlotte, but if not, we still have a pretty solid back court the next few seasons. We need a SF and C more.anyway.

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
