Things looking poorly.  All. Of the high stars are cancelling official visits.


Yeah, I was hoping that McKinney, Liddel and Beran would at least make it onto campus... those three were always a long shot, but I hoped that we could at least get a visit.  KU offering Christian Braun probably takes all of our momentum that we had with his recruitment.  Maybe KSU can still get visits from the first three or things will develop with Thorpe, January, Tandy or Camara.

Liddell did  not sign with Missouri; good sign.  January and Thorpe would be good gets.  Camara seems to have the hots for us.

Thorpe (#147), Camara (#123), January (#121) and Bruan (#113) all had nice jumps in the new Rivals rankings.  McKinney (#126) and Tandy (#118) fell a little.  Any of that group would be great.  I have no clue if we are still in the game with Liddell or Timme.

Well hairy mouse turds, Liddell has told Weber Inc he isn't considering Cats any more.  We are getting better at gettin fish to bite, but we ain't a dang at hooking them.  The more I read about Camara, the more I like him.  Who do you hope we get?

Braun, another MOKAN guy, shuns us.
Going to KU.
I wonder how many good recruits brought in by assistant coaches run away like scalded dog's after meeting Oscar.  Squirrelly guy or Self?  Not a hard decision.
Fishing but no catching.  Disappointed.

I figured Braun would jump on the KU offer.  Sucks, but that’s how it goes.  I feel bad for Weber and his staff.  They recruit really hard but struggle to close the door on top notch recruits.  I would break it down like this for our last three scholarships:

Braun: Gone to KU
McKinney and Liddell:  Both dripped us, probably going to Missouri
Timme: Dropped us
Tandy: Wants a UK offer, maybe if he holds out and it doesn’t come we might get a second look.
Camara: We got a visit, we got a shot I suppose
Thorpe: We were recruiting him early, hopefully it pays offf
January: No clue

I read somewhere Cal was 8-24.  They get a top 150 player, and cannot get crap with an Elite 8.  Where is the problem?

i mean, yeah, there's a lot to be said for quality of life, but basketball-wise, no way does cal beat ksu right now (edit: or any time in the foreseeable future)...biggest story for cal this offseason was that their coach tried to cut two of his own recruits after their freshman year and they refused to leave...

The Cal athletic department is kind of in a financial mess. (Not that it really matters)

I love this story

Quote
completely renovate and retrofit Memorial Stadium and build a new locker room and workout facility underneath it. The school was going to take on a bonded debt of $445 million
...
The Bears now owe at least $18 million per year in interest-only payments on the stadium debt, and that number will balloon to at least $26 million per year in 2032 when Berkeley starts paying off the principal stadium cost. Payments will increase until they peak at $37 million per year in 2039, then subside again in 2051 before Berkeley will owe $81 million in 2053. After that, the school is on the hook for $75 million more and will have six decades to pay it off. The stadium might not get paid off until 2113
