If you don't want me to insult you, then don't constantly complain in a condescending fashion when it's clear you are completely unqualified to have an intelligent opinion.

The fact this made national news is downright disturbing

PSU people still don't get how this whole thing looks to the outside world, even years after the fact.  They may never get it.

The "outside world" doesn't even care.


And how do you know this?

Really?  Are personal attacks really necessary?  A simple "old news" comment would be sufficient.  SMH.

You do realize who you are speaking to right? We know nothing, he knows everything. Despite the fact that he offers next to zero basketball analysis in his posts and almost everything he posts is narrative or insults. To top it off, he justifies being an ass and blames other people for his need to do so. You know what else works, ChambersEra, either use the ignore button or just ignore the comment.

But that's impossible for whoever ChambersEra is, standards of decency do not apply to him/her.

Remember, all we need to do is find the Joe Paterno for the basketball program and all will be fine. It's that simple!

Good for Isaiah that he's going to be able to graduate early and get on campus for the summer session. Hopefully it'll help him adjust, though I expect he'll be redshirted.

I have been anti-cupcake man but I must say, I am far more accepting of that line of thinking.

A 3:1 assist/TO ratio may not mean that he's the best ball handler under pressure.

But it does likely mean he doesn't make silly mental mistakes with the ball.

But that's still relative to the defenses he was facing and how quickly they can react. He'll be facing better competition, so it's about how quickly he adapts to B1G level defenders.

I'm just not going to make any judgments on the kid until I see him play. Hopefully it's a good pickup.

What if PSU could make the final four next season but you weren't allowed to watch or listen to any of the games all season long? 

That's bordering on Judgement of Solomon stuff. I'll bet I know one guy here that would gladly cut the baby in half.

If you can't watch or listen to the games, then what would be the point? How could you really enjoy it?

New proposed change to hardship waiver.  No longer will have immediate eligibility.  Will get an extra year of eligibility to make up for the lost year.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/college/2014/04/18/ncaa-transfers-hardship-waivers-division-i-leadership-council/7862945/


I don't really understand why this is the case. Why not just let them play right away instead of giving them an extra year?

That would be a good poll question. Would you abstain from even viewing pennstatehoops.com for three years if it guaranteed a national championship for PSU hoops?
If that happened and I couldn't come here to celebrate/discuss/complain about it, then it would hardly be worth it.   

...and I'm actually pretty serious about that.


But there's a loophole, we could find another forum. ;)

10
Shut down this forum and we will make a final four within 3 years.

Or, we all just get smarter. Which can happen quicker?

$$ he winds up at Auburn with Pearl

We'll see, hopefully not.

He hit ALL of his 3's!!  ;)

If he does even HALF that well here, it will be a smashing success !!!!

He was also 4-4 from the FT line in that highlight reel.     

(...BTW, they had FREE THROWS in his highlight reel ?!?!?!?  How bizarre is that ?!?!? )

Hopefully it means that they just didn't have a lot of game footage.

Do you know how little difference there is between Bill Carmody barely getting there and Penn State barely getting there? 

Bill Carmody and Northwestern have never barely gotten there, that's the point. We'll see if Collins can do something different for them and get them to the Dance. But they have never been there, which is why PSU is a better job. Hell, PSU has been to a Sweet 16 since 2000.

You can have the 3 NCAA Tournament bids since we joined the Big Ten that no kid we recruit cares about, I'll take Chicago.  I'll take the proximity to tons of talent and the proximity to a large population that is going to fill my arena every night. 

That no coach has ever been able to harness into an NCAA Tournament appearance. I wonder why. :/

How are we a worse job than Northwestern?

Chicago

BTW:  Is there much of a difference between last and second to last?  I know you and Skeeza love to argue these kinds of points.  The bottom line is we are viewed as an incredibly difficult program to have success at.  That's really what you need to understand if you don't already.

Well no, but there has literally been ZERO success at Northwestern. They've never even been to the NCAA Tournament. Coaches have been able to get that here. We are a program in better standing than NW, that's for sure.

I'm half expecting one more transfer because all these players keep coming out and acknowledging it.

18
The handful of people on this board that constantly question everything Chambers does(in mostly clueless fashion) can give up on the program and devote the same energy to playing with tinker toys and it would have absolutely no impact on the program.

So complain about the fans but criticize the ones who actually care. That's smart.

that's right everyone, he just defended Pat telling an outright lie and somehow blamed it on the fanbase.

Pat may not have intended to tell an outright lie though. He could've just misspoke and forgot to add 2 point defense to that. If that's the case it's no harm.

There's no harm period, although it's a strange thing for a coach to say when it's just completely false... but the point I'm making is look how pathetic this freaking guy defending him is.  I don't understand why he was allowed to come back and post this garbage.

He might be the garbage man but he's our garbage man (or woman depending on the sex).

Have to say seeing that was quite a surprise. Wouldn't surprise me if St. John's sent out a few feelers to him but DJ said no. Glad he will be here next year, we need him.

22
Maybe he forgot a 1 and meant 11th best B1G team this year.

Sterling Jenkins was at Ohio State on Friday and Penn State on Saturday. He's expected to announce his decision later today. He's the #1 player in PA.


Thread on PSFRS.rivals.com - er, bwi.rivals.com - says he committed to PSU during the visit yesterday. Unsourced.


That would be crazy.
