#2989873 How bout them Niners?!

Posted by kman72 on 29 September 2014 - 11:50 PM

I have 0 knowledge of the situation, but if UT blocked his release, then we couldn't let him on the team even if we wanted to.


They didn't part on good terms and NOBODY has picked him up. The dude has 0 legal problems and I haven't heard of any grade issues, so I suspect UT probably made transferring hell for him. I just don't believe a kid that was a 4 star in high school hasn't even had an FCS school offer him a scholarship unless there is something out there from preventing them from doing so (i.e. UT blocking all transfer requests).


I don't think he'll be a 9er either, but I'll retain a small amount of optimism.



He will not ever play here. His brother left the team as well. Tennessee situation was a mess on how he handled it and blindsided them with his departure. Coaches still stand by saying no room for another QB but IDK how you dont see and add the talent if it is there. 


Inside rumors around his family is that both he and his brother will go to Florida A&M next yr. (I think that was the school) But i know from a good source that is what is expected.

We are stacked in the backfield. Not a big loss. Elijah Hood will erase your doubts quick fast and in a hurry.



Yeah Elijah is something truly special. Great player and an awesome kid. Enjoyed last yr so much since I go to work closely around him and get to know him. Most Humble, respectful and polite kid I've ever worked with. He will be great, amazing talent with heart and desire to compliment his physical gifts.


I covered many of his games over last 2-3 yrs and remember the West Meck game for 2 specific reasons:


In game Elijah was at LB and WM's RB Shaun Wilson (Duke Commit) broke outside on a sweep from the 6 yd line. Elijah caught Wilson from behind (Not with an angle but straight ran him down) after around 50 yds. It was amazing! Wilson is known to be one of the fastest guys around Charlotte and in the state.


After the game I'm talking with Coach Oddo and waiting to talk with Elijah and he walks up and first thing he ask is if I knew how many tackles he had. I laughed and thought this kid just ran for over 300 yds and 3-4 tds and he asked me how many tackles? He is such a team guy and the community of players loved him. Note: wish I had video of his smile when I asked him about catching Wilson from behind.... answer was "I guess he isn't the fastest around here"

Best wishes to him.

He looked like a good player.



He is a monster. Great kid, fun to watch but he plays for a smaller school and only has 1-2 games you can even evaluate film from. He had a game last yr where he rushed for over 300 yds and 5-6 tds on like 15 carries and only got touched on half of those attempts.

That's a pretty big loss.

I wonder what happened.


North Stanly (NC) 2016 RB Antonio Williams has decommited from #UNC @rivals pic.twitter.com/gvfnKmDhxa


Hoping that link works correctly. This is what he posted, my buddy works for THI and will be interviewing him today or tomorrow if he can... When I hear something I'll let you know.


My opinion is he can see that UNC is loaded at RB with Logan, Hood, and Francis. All players can count and see where the minutes are and he has a lot of SEC options with more PT available.

No thanks, rather give the final 10 min off bench to Zeller, Vonleh, and Biz. 

#2844419 Hayward agrees to sign

Posted by kman72 on 09 July 2014 - 08:19 PM

Play Hayward and MKG together. Its easy in my eyes.... Hayward plays SG role in offense but MKG will guard the better offensive player on the other. Wing positions are interchangeable in most offenses anyway.  

#2838202 NBA Offseason Trade/Free Agency Thread

Posted by kman72 on 02 July 2014 - 02:26 PM

He would have to sign with Utah. He signs offer sheet with lets say the Cavs... Utah has a week to match offer or let him go. 


Hayward could get offered 12 million from lets say the Hornets and chose that over anything and Utah could just match. Whatever he signs as an offer sheet is what Jazz can match even if it was less than say what they offered originally. 


To best of my knowledge. 

#2837543 Chris Broussard: Hornets going to make a strong run at Stephenson.

Posted by kman72 on 01 July 2014 - 11:58 PM

If you support the players and team the name doesn't matter.... I've cheered for them since they have been back and whatever they are called matters little to me. Is it nice to have a piece of my childhood back? yeah of course but its still taking a getting used to since I've grown to hate the New Orleans Hornets so much over the last decade.


I just enjoy the company of fans who have been through the ups and downs we have had and didn't bandwagon on in because of a few letters in a name. Not to mention many of those haven't seen more than 10 games since they have come back. Yet they have tremendous opinions (that are always correct) on every player on our roster and all the mistakes we have made as they look back and hindsight nitpick around.

It's because there's only about 8 core posters in the Hornets forum.



Yeah I'm staying quiet waiting for us 8 when the season starts.... Off-season always sucks in any forum with all the guys who dont barely follow coming with off the wall comments

#2829088 Hornets willing to part with #9 for Afflalo

Posted by kman72 on 24 June 2014 - 04:00 PM

Affalo is better. Yes. Is he worth Hendo and 9? Not in my opinion. If we can get 12 back, go for it. If not walk away and look towards Lance and draft BPA.

A goal is a goal in my book.


I dont give a Sh** if Dempsey crosses the ball and the opposing defender ends up with an own goal.... 














#2813053 North/South Carolina beach recommendation

Posted by kman72 on 07 June 2014 - 10:57 PM

Ocean Isle Beach is a good place. I was just there over the weekend. We go every Memorial Day Weekend. Pretty beach. Friendly. There is a really good restuarant I like called Sharkeys. Give it a try. I believe it is about 45 miles from Wilmington. I never had any nonsense there. Just abunch of families and young people having a good time.



Next time drive down south about 15 min to Calabash. Nice places to eat all around there right off the inlet with tons of boats and action on the water. 


Tony's Pizza is really good and all the other places are seafood. I don't eat seafood but the family all does and I think the place is called Nances. 

#2805448 Charlotte & App Announce Games for 2018 & 2019

Posted by kman72 on 31 May 2014 - 02:42 PM

Has it been confirmed yet? All I've seen is speculation.


We also got Uriah Lemay from Georgia last week. Two big pick ups for our program.


We have some good talent stock piled at WR and QB (if Ferguson actually comes here). Our WR corps is filled with 3 star recruits and a few guys that showed a lot of skill last year and now we have two young three star QB's (again, assuming Ferguson comes here) that had good offer lists.


We are still weak on the D line though and I'm afraid teams are going to abuse us at the LOS next year when we move up to FBS. If we can get that fixed, we may not embarrass ourselves our first year playing (sorta) big boy football.


If Ferguson comes here, I hope he doesn't think he'll just be handed the job. We signed a kid this year named Brooks Barden who was a three star QB with some nice offers. He was the leading passer in AAA football in Georgia. Smart kid and a hard worker. He actually enrolled early this spring. I'm not counting him out. Ferguson will have to earn it.



Riley hasn't enjoyed his time at Tennessee and that's why he is leaving. He wasn't recruited by current staff more by Derek Dooley and the previous staff. He did commit to Jones staff but he has regretted it from day 1. 


He won't officially or privately confirm what he is doing. His brother plays wr at Charlotte and close friend Uriah is coming back to Charlotte to play. Both Uriah and Riley have to sit out next yr and will lose a yr of eligibility. Riley wouldn't say much when I spoke with him but his dad and Uriah both said he was definitely leaning towards coming back home and playing for Charlotte.    

#2802842 Free Agency Targets: Arron Afflalo or Pau Gasol

Posted by kman72 on 28 May 2014 - 08:56 PM

I wont trade 9 for Affalo when we could sign Stephenson, Hayward, or Monroe without trading. I like him as a player but my offer would be Hendo and 24 and nothing more. 


Like Pau game but dont like the fit here. Rather look for a younger option to fit into core for next 5-7 yrs.
