Mizzouman:: hey brad
MIZZOUNATION:: Hey Brad
MIZZOUNATION:: He has
Toger:: Why did Linas wait on signing an agent?
Toger:: I saw the fatal mistake comment.
MIZZOUNATION:: better link
Toger:: I honestly can not see Linas scoring much in the NBA. He scored at MU because he was stronger than everyone. I'm probably wrong but if he doens't develop and outside shot I think he's in trouble.
Toger:: Did you see where Famutini stayed in the draft? Heath was quite pissed about it.
Mizzouman:: can you give that link again....
Mizzouman:: thank you
Toger:: Olu didn't even make the lists of who stayed in the draft.
Toger:: I really like Bogut.
MIZZOUNATION:: check out what the
writer had to say about Kleiza... "Talented
Lithuanian forward was once considered one of the top players in his age group
before making the fatal mistake of committing to
virson:: I'm in and out BB, doing stuff around the house
Mizzouman:: well rush made the right decision ......
Mizzouman:: once it is confirmed
bj4mu:: Hey Brad! In and out myself but I thought I'd keep the window open. What's up?
Mizzouman:: predictions........ where is rush going to go........
bj4mu:: My money's on Kareem!!
MIZZOUNATION:: mmm...Big Mac
Mizzouman:: duke for academics???
Mizzouman:: what do you think brad
bj4mu:: That was some funny shit, MM!!
Mizzouman:: i am on the phone now......trying to get ahold of an uncle
bj4mu:: Gentlemen, gonna go grad a brewski with my pa-in-law. Will keep the window up for the latest.
bj4mu:: I might even "grab" one. He he
Mizzouman:: so is everyone else still on here
MIZZOUNATION:: off and on
Mizzouman:: so when i break the news maybe someone will be on
MIZZOUNATION:: i'll be here...
Mizzouman:: hey guys
WildIrishMizzou:: So Brush is still a possibility?
Mizzouman:: ummmm possibly yeah
WildIrishMizzou:: We need some good news. I have a feeling football recruiting is really going to take a hit this season.
NAPERTIGER:: Hi everyone!
MIZZOUNATION:: hello all
Fort80:: whats the news guys? Did BR really pull out of the draft?
WildIrishMizzou:: I think the audience is smaller than stated
Mizzouman:: looks like it
Fort80:: what are our chances?
NAPERTIGER:: WIM I think if we win 7 or more we are ok,if less we take a hit.
WildIrishMizzou:: Naper, I think if we have to win 8. We are already losing a lot of instate kids, and many of the upper tier won't wait. If we start slow, we are dead in the water
NAPERTIGER:: WIM or Brad did camps result in any new offers for 05?
WildIrishMizzou:: And start slow, means we have to blow people away
WildIrishMizzou:: which I think we will have trouble doing early
Mizzouman:: but he has to get by the ncaa first
Fort80:: I think as much as anything people/recruits have to have a much better feeling about our offensive schemes.
WildIrishMizzou:: MM let's face it. That, particularly AT Mizzou, won't be easy.
Fort80:: the clearinghouse?
Mizzouman:: he has qualified but has to get by the clearinghouse
WildIrishMizzou:: Fort. It's only a better feeling if it produces results
WildIrishMizzou:: Bill Cubitproduced good feelings. Not wins
MIZZOUNATION:: I think the kids like the staff well enough.
WildIrishMizzou:: Last year Pinkel was supposed to be pressing to have a breakthrough year. I wonder how tight he is wound this offesaon?
WildIrishMizzou:: Let's face it. It is do or die time for this staff. And with so many variables that have to go right
WildIrishMizzou:: mm.. doesn't give me a good feeling
Mizzouman:: bc clean had a 3.95 gpa and got a 1150 sat and didn't pass him until he took his 5th test
Fort80:: MM....what do you know about Josh Love of Hill juco?
Mizzouman:: clean.....i meant glen
Mizzouman:: bc ncaa didn't want mizzou to get a good prep like player
Fort80:: also...anything new on Miles?
Mizzouman:: if they let us have brandon we would have a top 5-10 class and that would be tough for roy and others to swallow when we are on probation this year to STOP us from getting good recruits
Mizzouman:: miles will be ours if we want him
Fort80:: i thought we had already offered miles?
Mizzouman:: yes we have
Fort80:: what does the ncaa tell these kids when they reject a passing score???? Pick another school and we'll clear you?
Mizzouman:: not exactly but.....
Mizzouman:: just tell him their was soemthing wrong with one of his classes
Fort80:: MM i have heard that the Winnetonka kid looked good at the team camp
Fort80:: also heard the mu coaches are all over
They should be all over
NAPERTIGER:: WIM hard to think things could be as bad as last year!I think our talent level is better except at dt,than last year.
Fort80:: i am a little concerned with our small rb's on offense.
Mizzouman:: we are fine in bball if we can win this year
Mizzouman:: just wait and see
JPROCK1:: Hey Mizzouman
JPROCK1:: See what?
Mizzouman:: hey JP
Mizzouman:: the bball team in a few years
JPROCK1:: You don`t have to tell me...but what is the subject?
MIZZOUNATION:: DT is a position that you can most easily cover up a talent deficiency
Fort80:: JP....what are your thoughts on us not offering Zach Kendall? THink it was a mistake?
JPROCK1:: Oh yeah, the froncourt at least should have the horses
NAPERTIGER:: Hey JP!Any new offers out of camps?
JPROCK1:: No, not yet anyway...Zach was a kid that they wanted to evaluate at camp like a few others...I get the impression this offended him
Mizzouman:: i am talking the backcourt my friend......wait about 24 months
MIZZOUNATION:: mm...if we can find someone to step up to Conley's intensity, we'll be fine i think
Fort80:: I guess the ? is can we afford to wait 24 months?
JPROCK1:: Not yet Naper.... most likely before the season is Derek Hall...they liked him in KC
Mizzouman:: not if we don't win this year
Fort80:: JP...what does your gut
tell you about our chances with
JPROCK1:: 'Ohhh, well 24 months...unless meltdown occurs
Mizzouman:: we have so kids that are ours after this season
JPROCK1:: Hard to read...likes the staff, but he is working towards a big time situation....and it`s paying off for him...
Fort80:: when exactly can our coaches recruit off campus again?
Mizzouman:: they don't need 2
Mizzouman:: this staff is good
Mizzouman:: they can't wait to get out there
MIZZOUNATION:: be modest now lol
Mizzouman:: j.k of course
NAPERTIGER:: JP how do the tigers rate with the remaing instate bigtimers?
Fort80:: are there any legs to the rumor that knollmeyer will go to prep school for a year? THat sounds pretty good to me..
JPROCK1:: Zach Kendall reminds me of a bigger version of Bart Coslet...big athlete that can run, but hasn`t shown it all on the field yet
Fort80:: i just like kids that can play dt
Fort80:: hard to find
JPROCK1:: I`d say pretty good still with about 50% of them
JPROCK1:: Talked with Adrian Clayborn on Sat at the DJ all star game...Keith Williams was there ,too
MIZZOUNATION:: JP, do you think 8-10 in-stater's this year would be an accurate number?
NAPERTIGER:: With the right 50% I could take that,what did Williams have to say?
JPROCK1:: Griffey is further ahead...bigger, smoother and a little better skills at Hansbrough`s frosh year..I didn`t see TH as a 8th grader
JPROCK1:: Sounds about right...A LOT depends on how the year goes
JPROCK1:: Mizzou coaches really love Griffey BTW incase Mizzouman hasn`t told you yet
Fort80:: just hope his dad isn't a ku or illini alumn or something like that...!!
has been at camp with
NAPERTIGER:: JP what are the Tigers chances with Kieth Williams?
MIZZOUNATION:: We'll just set his
dad up with a cushy job in
JPROCK1:: Nope, the Dad seems to be pretty open ..I imagine it is hard to get use to having such a phenom as a kid...EVERYBODY suddenly wants to be your pal
JPROCK1:: That`s what I am seeing a lot of so far
JPROCK1:: lol Nation
JPROCK1:: Hard to read, Naper...McCluer North kids are alweays hard to read, but as of now Mizzou is in the mix
TigerLloyd:: Has there been any scoop on BR tonight in the chat room?
Fort80:: jp...have u seen kony ealey play? i think he is a year behind griffey..
JPROCK1:: Coach Shottmueller trys to keep the recruiting stuff away from his kids for as long as possible
JPROCK1:: Oh yeah...I have seen Kony...if he continues to grow and devolp, it will be Tyler Hansbrough who in SEMO area in a few years
JPROCK1:: Kony will just be an 8th grader down in New Madrid
Fort80:: thats what i've heard but i haven't seen him yet
Fort80:: how tall is he now?
JPROCK1:: Big kid, really put together...looks like he is playing with his children
JPROCK1:: about 6`4"- 6`5"
Fort80:: wonder if he plays football :-)
JPROCK1:: and can handle it and shoot the three pretty well....as you can imagine he dominates inside and always drwas double,triple teams
JPROCK1:: Yanno...as the thought crosses my mind I do believe he does or will
JPROCK1:: Yeah, if Coach McFerren could play him this year I think he would
JPROCK1:: Lots of nice talent across the state in coming years
Mizzouman:: good to hear JP
JPROCK1:: Besides Griffey,
Fort80:: I know travis releford has a younger bro who will be a frosh
JPROCK1:: Yep, Trevor
JPROCK1:: KC area had some good freshman this past year
Fort80:: also heard about a frosh to be named trey levoroni from webb city
Fort80:: havent' seen him
JPROCK1:: Yep, there is another
frosh down there that plays INSWMO named
Fort80:: what school?
JPROCK1:: Chris Hastings is the
name I believe...so the basketball is all over...oh yeah, another kid who will
either be a 8th or frosh in
Fort80:: i've heard lees summit west has some very nice underclassmen coming in a couple of years
JPROCK1:: I`m drawing a blank...I`ll get back to you on it..I think it`s...Nixa perhaps
Fort80:: plus mike sandbothe has a son i've head is a good sized kid and may be a prospect in the lees summit district
JPROCK1:: Yeah, i`m waiting to see Sundvold`s boy play eventually
JPROCK1:: It`s about time some of these former Tigers produce some talented offspring
Fort80:: i guess larry drew has a son that is a player?
JPROCK1:: Not sure
JPROCK1:: BTW.. Criswell and Thomas looked nice Sat night
JPROCK1:: Ok..gotta run...later Fort, Mizzouman
Fort80:: later jp
Mizzouman:: drew has a nice kid
Fort80:: what class?
jmasixx6:: hey guys any good news?
Mizzouman:: we shall see
jmasixx6:: isure hope so

Stlweir:: Hi all!
Stlweir:: Anything new in the FB or BB recruiting front?
Mizzouman:: soon guys......soon
Killer1:: hell all
Stlweir:: MM, it appears B Rush has no interest in getting an education. Even if he comes how doies he stay in school?
Mizzouman:: i would say 2 years
Mizzouman:: hey dre
Mizzouman:: brad should be back soon
drecar:: Anyone here
Mizzouman:: a few off and on
Mizzouman:: long time no speak dre......
Mizzouman:: how have things been
drecar:: So you here Rush dropped out? didn't think a highschool kid had to, I thought they could stay in like baseball
drecar:: hear not here
Mizzouman:: yeah i am hearing that he dropped out
Mizzouman:: he is looking college and then juco if he can't get qualified
Mizzouman:: so Q should get on the phone
drecar:: Why would rRush have t to if he didn't have too?
Mizzouman:: he had to......unless he didn't get drafted
you staff in......
Mizzouman:: college is done
drecar:: I don't think so, they changed the rules for highschool kids I think
Mizzouman:: but its the money....
drecar:: I may be wrong but I think they let them seewhere he will go
Mizzouman:: he would be the property of the team that picked him up in the bottom of the second round with no guaranteed contract
Mizzouman:: where do u think rush will go if he indeed pulled out..
drecar:: Only if hestayed just one year in college
drecar:: I thought MU a while ago but might be OSU or OU
Mizzouman:: yeah i know
Mizzouman:: ou ....and not having to go to class is enticing to him
Mizzouman:: it will all depend on kareem
MIZZOUNATION:: its a good thing he didn't try the draft then
Mizzouman:: it will either be ou or mu
They had a story about
