    Most of the twitter noise im seeing on Aaron Calixte is to Oklahoma. Lon Kruger is hot on his trail.

    I think it is important to remember that even J3 had some stats that were not incredibly reassuring. Granted he was a few years younger. That ratio should be cause for concern. But I would look into the "why", as well. The cadence to his pace is impressive. He works the floor with a lot of patience and vision for a ball handler. And he have a nice touch in the mid-range. Which, for a dribble-drive motion guard, can be a killer for a defense. Would also be interesting see where he fits in, here.

    Agreed Coach, but we're talking about a point guard here. He starts bouncing the ball off the cheerleader's heads in Few's system and his butt is gathering splinters. Agree?

    Very much agree. And from what I am seeing, we had a cheerleader in the past who wasn't great at spelling. Don't need a head injury making that an issue again. Talk about a buzz kill for cheers that are supposed to get people amped up:

    "G-O-N...wait, did Suzie just put up the "A"?! Gonazga?! Must be one of those North Central cheerleaders..."

    It all comes down to whether or not he is in a system that doesn't fit, and/or if the coaching just isn't there. And it really depends on what you are looking for, in terms of a fit. This is a second unit point guard. Josh has transformed. Unless he (Josh) wants to be an off-ball guard, a kid like this doesn't make sense as a starter.

    My system here at work won't let me open the link Philly posted above; will have to check it out tonight.

    You guys are throwing a lot of names out there.

    Florida State PG C.J. Walker to transfer.

    If you can't beat him, get him to join?

    Just kidding I think, but it is pretty interesting that he wants to play somewhere else.

    OT --

    I'm over the loss, yet we had no business losing to that team. None.

    They mucked it up, out-athlete'd, and used their depth well, yet we are a much better basketball team.

    I felt like we played right into their hands/gameplan.

    Michigan only scored 58 points vs FSU, yet they never panicked. Or rushed shots. They played precise and grinded with them. They felt the pressure but just patience was KEY. I said as much before the game and we did the exact opposite.

    The young guys, especially, fell for their ploys. I thought Josh did a nice job given the constant pressure, yet while Norvell made some shots yet a big reason we lost that game (he saved us in Rd 1 and Rd 2, so take the good with the bad). Silas had no business shooting 12 shots either. And Kispert laid some eggs when we were within 5 pts. They will learn.

    Not a terrible loss, but a game we should have won and advanced.

    /end rant. Apologies for OT reply.

    I watched quite a few of the Cougs' games, and couldn't disagree more. Their only Pac caliber players were Flynn and Franks, both of whom had to score a lot for them to have a chance. Flynn moved the ball really well for them, and as someone said above, had to take the tough shots when the clock was winding down. Hit at least a couple of big game-winning shots. Very clutch in some of the games I saw.

    I'm very confident from watching him that he'd play well in the Zags' system. Drawbacks I see are size and lack of elite athleticism, but a very good basketball player.

    I would take Malachi all day, every day, including on Tuesday.

    He would be a tremendous guard to have in our RS program. Would be fortunate to get a player like him sit out a year.

    Actually, flashes some NWG in his game. Not as polished/efficient overall, but similar style on the court. Makes the right play more often than not, can score, pass, and excellent handles.

    I don't believe he has any interest, yet I would take him in a heart beat.

    (he didn't shoot the ball particularly well last season, yet he shot 39% 3pt and over 150 attempts as a Frosh, so I know he can shoot when taking good shots)

    And he did it with a bad team in a tougher league. 39% from 3 is a bit better than our own guys did outside of Tillie. He's a good player. He'll improve. Good tools and coachable. PLUS he's from Bellarmine Prep. lol

    Only Sorta. I looked at the top line wherein his 3 pt % is 387 % (basically 39%) from his first year.

    34% was Sophomore season, with over 250 attempts.

    39% was Freshman season, with over 150 attempts

    Averages out to around 37% with 400 attempts.

    That's solid.

    And his shot selection would improve mightily, as you might expect, as a Zag.

    A long shot he comes here, but he'd be a great get as a transfer.

    Some will quibble over minor details but the bottom line is that this kids data is solid and he will contribute to the team. Young and still in development. He's a good player with HS and college stats to back it up. Unless the staff finds somebody clearly better, I'd have him in for a "sit down". Not sure how he was overlooked.

    I have 3 things to say on this topic:

    1. NO SHORT GUARDS.
    2. NO SHORT GUARDS.
    3. NO SHORT GUARDS.

    Six Foot Four, show me more.
    Six Foot Three, talk with me.
    Six Foot Two, bad for you - and go away.

    Go Bulldogs!
    Do not go gentle into that good night,
    Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
