    I'm not super excited about the possibility of Derryck Thornton being our starting point guard next season, but if he signs then he has my 100% support, and I'm sure he has Spy's as well.
    Thank you for this post, the other post was way out of line and not appropriate.

    I’m sure the majority of fans would also be on board, especially if the staff believes he would be a good fit for us to add backcourt depth and another veteran presence.

    I counted 3 total people against the idea. Let’s not confuse a majority of the posts in this thread being negative with the majority of people being so negative about Derryck helping to bridge the gap until 2020.
    Spot on analysis. If he can help us win a National Championship then I'm all aboard. I sense some anti-Duke sentiment on this thread which is ridiculous. The kid is talented but he would be a much better Olynk Clinic candidate IMO.

    I am not in the loop, but my impression is that Nix may be the Zags first option, if things can be worked out, and Thornton is plan B.

    I also would assume that if Thornton had been offered, he would have accepted.

    There is also that 95% that we, the general fan, know nothing about...the proverbial 'Rabbit in the hat".
    Hoping you have a sense of humor too!

    It did "need to take place", anything to shut the guy up with his foolish opinions. Im only loyal to the zags, not a saboteurs feelings. Also it was posted for our future zags to see not everyone is onboard with questioning the coaching staff or the guy's they bring in.

    As the moderator of the Whelping Box, you need to stop. Spy has been a part of this board for a long time and has his opinions. There are times Spy and I do not see eye to eye, but he has the right to his opinion. Do I personally think he went to far on Thorton, yes I do, but I think you have completely overstepped your bounds as a member of these boards by the personal insults and are risking being suspended or banned. Please keep the conversations on the recruit, not on personal attacks.

    So a joke that a loudmouth is a Saint Mary’s fan crosses the line while repeated negative posts about the actual recruit is getting a pass because Spy has been here a long time? Wow. I agree with Spy, but I made one post about it. The SMC post was fine and does make a valid point to recruits who might see Spy (or my) post and be a bit unsettled.

    How long does someone have to be here before they get the benefit you’re giving Spy?

    Have you read half of the post in this thread. I have told Spy to knock it off as well. If you would like to take over being the moderator go for it dude.

    The joke crossed the line, as I was already trying to put the Spy fire out and that post did nothing to help. But also the two follow up post after I told him to stop were out of line as well.

    Neither poster gets a pass, but once you are asked to stop, STOP!

    Way to derail a thread.

    Caldwell has posted a few times here mentioning that Thorton will probably be a Zag. We need a PG with college experience. He is one. His shooting could be a bit better. Not many other options at this point

    I am personally not sure this move is necessary for GU right now. I think the best decision is to wait till after the timeline has passed for the NBA draft to see who is available. I would say this is a good move if another guard is leaving the team outside of the guys that have already been discussed. It could also make sense if we know we may not be in the mix for one of those guards who withdraw from the draft and can immediately transfer to another team. I would also have to think Nix is still a possibility even though his camp has kept everything hush hush. My recommendation is for the team to be patient. A guard will come our way that will be a great fit.
