Re: Recruiting under Sellers off to a good start...

Yes, Sellers is looking a couple of years ahead and not trying for a quick fix, which would probably not turn out well anyway. That's understood. I think that this recent big is someone who Sellers hopes to develop. The guy certainly looks like he has the raw tools. I am not to worried about outside...

Re: Recruiting under Sellers off to a good start...

Javier Mojica, yes. "Who is that guy? Where did he come from?" I remember when he got playing time as a walk on freshman. No doubt he impressed in practice and then made an impact when he got his chance in games.

Re: Monetizing Name, Image, Likeness

I don't think there is anything wrong with this and it's not a big deal, except to the players who can earn some outside money for appearances, ads, endorsements, etc. They're not being paid to play, its just a matter of giving them the ability to sell their name and appearance. Why shouldn't they b...

Re: Recruiting under Sellers off to a good start...

I believe there are just 2 spots to fill? Yes, I stand corrected there are 2 scholarships still open. I did the count off of Verbal Commits, which at the time, had not yet included McLaughlin, but I should have checked since I already knew that McLaughlin had committed. My mistake! Do you agree tha...

Re: Recruiting under Sellers off to a good start...

"He's [Trenton McLaughlin] also an elite three-point shooter that will bring floor spacing and scoring to the program." Pat Sellers I guess we can see the pattern here. Get ready to see a lot of outside bombing. I can't argue with the philosophy, that is the way the game is played today. Certainly a...

Re: Welcome home Pat Sellers!

The comedy here is this: The bar has been set so low because of the disaster of the past 5 years that when our new coach--at our DIVISION 1 school!--takes over and says that he will do interviews, reconnect with fans and alum and former players, actually use statistics to guide decision-making, tea...

Re: 2021 schedule

Thanks for the info J.J. I suspected something like that was the case. Doesn't the Yale Bowl seat 60+ thousand? No doubt that they regularly get a full house #-o Looks jam packed for the 2019 Cornell game below: yale bowl 2019.JPG It would be nice to go to the Yale Bowl, get paid, and come out with ...

Re: 2021 schedule

Would love to hand UConn and Yale a loss.
Yes, and I am sure Southern Conn is thinking the same about us! Better win that one first.

Oh, is Yale a home and home? or are they paying us not to have to come to Arute?

Re: Jake Watch

For an undrafted free agent who never played in a regular season game, Jake is doing quite well hanging around the NFL.
He has gotten good reviews while at the Pats and Bengals yet was never given a chance.
Maybe the Packers will give him a serious look during the exhibition games.

Re: Recruiting under Sellers off to a good start...

Odd to me that he'd be looking at another wing. McLaughlin is a shooter, and Sellers clearly values shot making, but I would have thought he'd turn his attention toward size (and perhaps the Portal). Yes, one would think that the focus would be on getting a couple of bigs. The only reason I can thi...

Re: Recruiting under Sellers off to a good start...

Am I missing something here? Verbal Commits has Tre Mitchell listed as enrolled at Central Connecticut. And he is not in their list of the Transfers.

Re: Recruiting under Sellers off to a good start...

Hegel Augustin had impressive stats at the D2 level. Looking at the highlight tape he looks quick and can shoot threes (though highlight tapes don't show misses). I expect that Sellers is bringing him in as a Senior (or is he a graduate?) transfer because he expects to get serious minutes from Augus...
