    you said Byington left the cup board bare, that's just not the case. He left a good roster that was light with bigs but overall the roster had lots of talent. guys transfering out is not on him.

    no, BUT for whatever reasons, the cup board is bare. Even if Mark recruited 2 great bigs, I doubt they would have came with the coaching change. Coach Burg will need all our support, MAJOR rebuilding mode coming up.

    It happens with every coaching change in every sport. If Burg is what everyone says he is, we'll be fine!

    Maybe he brings in a couple of studs with him that he was looking at while at Texas Tech. That's the way these things go in today's game. I'm not ready to talk about bare cupboards until I see who is actually on next year's team.

    Nothing he didn't already have here. When someone who seemed happy here just ups and leaves, I always wonder why. Certainly wasn't a playing time issue. And if it was just about Mark leaving, he would have followed him to JMU.

    If we fail to hold onto Calvin, Quan, and Byrd (the freshman guard we signed) I fear Burg may not have passed his first test as a recruiter. I don't think I can say for sure because you're always going to have some kind of attrition with coaching changes but going 0 for 3 on these guys is not a good sign I'm afraid.

    And I don't really care what restrictions the NCAA has on recruiting, everyone has the same restrictions and Burg ought to be able to meet guys already on the team face to face anyways.

    Why would the situation he's walking into be a fail on his first recruiting test? Good gracious, give the man a chance to actually bring in some players.

    Perhaps they offered a major that he couldn't pursue at GS. Maybe he has friends from home who go there who he wants to be closer to. Maybe he has family in the area. Maybe he wants to go to a school that is literally on the beach. Who knows? I for one appreciate his willingness to come to GS in the first place all the way from Minnesota and thank him for the time he spent here.

    ”seems” happy. I have my doubts Calvin was that happy.
