Penn State Basketball / Re: Devin Foster to PSU
« on: Yesterday at 03:23 PM »
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.

Penn State Basketball / Re: Geno is staying!
« on: Yesterday at 09:46 AM »
I'm half expecting one more transfer because all these players keep coming out and acknowledging it.

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.

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

Hopefully he's ready to step in and contribute right away.

Still one more schollie left, would like to see us get a big who can play right away.

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.

Woodward could have many world class skills, if he can't reliably handle the ball against pressure, he can't play pg in the Big Ten. That's not slamming the kid, that's simply stating a fact.  Slamming the kid would be saying he couldn't handle being pressed by a team of 5th graders.  That's slamming.

Despite his "handle that isn't good enough for the B1G" it was good enough for 12 1/2 minutes per game as a freshman this season? This handle was so bad that we were 3-3 in B1G games he played 20 minutes or more (with those games being @ Ohio State, @ Indiana, Wisconsin, @ Michigan and both Purdue games). Graham being benched towards the end of the season didn't really make much sense and now that he's transferring I have to say I'm even more bemused.

He was playing a decent amount of minutes and was our only PG, yet he leaves? Who else is going to play PG? Shep Garner isn't a PG, we don't know anything about Devin Foster (or if he's even going to commit) and we don't really know what else is out there for us. He was our only PG and real consistent outside shooter, so now we might already enter next season with our backs against the wall in Chambers's most important season yet. He has to get it right this year or fear the axe imo.

Wow, you are going to go to the COMMENT SECTION of an article to say what the majority of college basketball fans (or even the majority of Pat Forde readers) are saying. That's sensational. I don't even know how you can say that with a straight face.

So, go ahead and eat grains if you want.  Your decision.

When I become obese, I'll get back to you, given that I've been eating whole grains for a decade plus and have been in shape the entire time, I'm going to say that grains and carbs don't cause obesity.

Carbs = obesity is not true if people work out and eat them in moderation. Just like with almost anything, loads of foods are fine for you in moderation. Carbs are just another part of it.

Thanks for confirming what I said in my original post.

Of course college basketball was more exciting this year and so was the Tournament. I don't see how anyone can say otherwise.

Penn State Basketball / Re: 2014-15 scheduling thread
« on: April 11, 2014, 11:47 AM »
I would think scheduling would be difficult given that Villanova plays some games in Philly, along with the Flyers and Sixers. It would almost have to be a weekend game too, which poses extra problems.

Whole-grain rich foods are great for you. I don't know what myth needs to be challenged.

Whole-grain foods are packed with nutrients like fiber, protein, Vitamin B and antioxidants.

A diet rich in whole grains has been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and some forms of cancer. Whole-grain diets also improve bowel health by helping to maintain regular bowel movements and promote growth of healthy bacteria in the colon.

Penn State Basketball / Re: Recruiting
« on: April 11, 2014, 11:02 AM »
RE: Savon Goodman.  No thanks.  You don't fix Penn State MBB's problems with a guy who is an admitted thief.  Let someone else give him a second chance. 

We are in a position where we have to take risks on players and if he's rehabilitated, he deserves a 2nd chance, just like any other person.

I agree with Skeeza on this. This is really bad provided we don't get at least one PG in the next few weeks through transfers.

Savon Goodman also available for an immediate fill in.  Get on the horn PC, maybe we can give him a second chance.

Would love this.

A decision I'm in 100% agreement with by the USDA. Now, I'm not sure how it would fair in a court of law but anything that is being done to get our children fitter is something I am all in favor for provided they are reasonable in implementation. This is very reasonable imo.
