No field goals and only 4 pts. in a crucial game for his team -- can't wait to see him in a Hawk uniform next year!

I obviously didn't see the game, but that sounds pretty poor. Hope it was just an aberration, but some of our big-man recruits have an eery similarity.
Meanwhile, just saw somewhere that we missed out on this kid Rosario (from Cardinal McCarrick -- South Amboy) -- who everyone raves about. Guess who got him? Tom Green!

Wow - this kid can't get a deuce in a big game. Does he join the group of big men we have next year who 'need work'? Our frontcourt doesn't give me much hope going forward -- and I thought it was bad this year!
Who's recruiting these guys? After all, these are $100,000+ scholarships we're handing out!

I just spoke with Deltufo's coach..Jim Baglin.

He said Deltufo is averaging 12-13 ppg..about seven rebounds.

He said Chatham
did a good job double-teaming him last night.

Describes him as "good ball-handling" forward.

MU has pictured him to me as "Russ Anderson" type.

Sounds to me like a "system player".

That's fine..but, in my opinion, now MU's gotta get a front court player for next year that can
make a siginifcant impact and be a scorer.

Of the red-shirts I think Dobriansky, at least, will develop into a solid post player, though it may take a while.

I have seen him play a few times this year, he will fit into the MU system very well,good handle, nice shooting touch,high BB IQ,father is a very good coach as well, and he likes to rebound.He will not be an impact player day one maybe his JR year.Good student as well..I would rate him as a C+ recruit..

If this guy is a "Russ Anderson"type,then i'm very happy.Russ was my all time favorite player.Russ did the dirty work...rebounded,took charges,played good D,etc etc.This year we don't have a Russ or Tom Kaplan type player.The closest is Nunner but he is no Russ or Tom.
Hey,Corsley Edwards used to get triple teamed and sometimes didn't put up big numbers.....does that mean he stunk?

If your favorite player ever was Russ than good luck in life!

Couldn't agree with you more -- MU has to get an impact frontcourt player for next year. Del Tufo being a 'Russ Anderson'-type will ONLY be ok if there's a dominant player for him to complement -- right now I don't see one.

To the genius who posted about Rosario: MU could have had him but basically everyone backed off him this summer, because he STUNK. He would have came to MU. Tom Green did nothing, get your facts staright buddy.

I thought you had some kind of rule about insults & such on the blog -- why let this mental midget (keep it in Tony, you owe me one after letting him insult me) sarcastically give me this 'genius' reference about my post on the kid Rosario? I was just trying to inform people of what I've heard and 'mentally challenged' jumps on me?
Maybe he should go rant after the people posting the praises about the kid (after he learns how to spell correctly, that is)-- I was just the messenger here.

Though the "genius" comment was dripping in sarcasm ,or you calling the poster a mental midget would be of a similar ilk, I see no reason to obliterate either in these instances.

The point is, of course my retort was dripping in sarcasm -- why shouldn't it be? My original statement didn't deserve that kind of response.

Furthermore, I'm one of the regular bloggers here -- but obviously not one of the favorites (i.e. MU Mystery Coach, Jason K., or Bob Curran). I just saw an instance where you reacted yesterday (and rightly so) to someone who replied negatively to Mystery Coach's long message. You did that on your own -- with no prompting from anyone, like I had to point out here. However, if you're going to play 'blog cop' with some, do it with all.
I guarantee you I've been around this campus longer than most blogging here & seen more than most as well -- and when I post a harmless message like I did I don't expect to be insulted by some twit who knows a few people on campus and thinks he's some hoops guru.

I think you're being a little too sensitive here.

As for being "Blog Cop" (where's my badge?) mainly I am referring to malicious or highly demeaning attacks on players and coaches.

If fans want to take shots at each other - I will be a little more lenient - as long as there are no graphically insulting or major four letter words.

"Genious" and "mental midget" are acceptable.

I trust we have all been called worse. I know I have.

There are no "favorites" here though some fans, (probably even you), players, etc., have a great deal of knowledge which I am glad they share with us.

And obviously I don't know one "anonymous" from another.
