Pretty freaking smart to me. Legal way to try and influence a kid. Didn't work so we are moving on.

Why don’t we bring back LB in the same position that Hardaway is trying to use him for in Memphis? Keep him limited to coaching, primarily defense.

"Reeks". As in, Jason B reeks of conspiracy theories and bad info.

I have no idea whether this kid would have been good for us or not. I’ll trust those who know more on that. But to a person like me, a layman in college sports, this makes SMU look terrible. Again.

How much did we pay Calipari not to poach him until the reseat was complete?

Appreciate the insight, hoop.
Bigger picture, does this mean we can move on from trying to recruit DFW?
We made our name the past few years with players nowhere close to here and we seem permanently snakebitten in the area. Will this be a lesson for the staff or are we going to keep mining an area that seems to despise us?

Clearly we have some good connections in Oklahoma, we need to maintain those. It would be great if Jank could reestablish his Illinois Indiana connection. We shouldn't just ignore DFW (way to many good players here) but we have to come up with a plan to actually get these guys to campus.

Jankovich needs to hire former SMU baller Rod Hampton. He wanted the job when it was given to Maxey. He told me he was hurt & disappointed his school didn’t offer him.
What a great gesture if SMU was to bring back one of their own, who just happens to have a son who is equally as good, or possibly even better than Maxey.

Would love to have a former player on staff. I've always believed someone truly connected to the school would be a more passionate recruiter

didn't they change the rule effective after SMU hired Maxey
"With a quarter of a tank of gas, we can get everything we need right here in DFW." -SMU Head Coach Chad Morris

When momentum starts rolling downhill in recruiting-WATCH OUT.

me too. The biggest mistake here wasnt hiring Maxey it was prioritizing a kid like Maxey in the first place, Ball dominant. doesnt share and volume shoots. Great player but for a program buiult on sharing the ball, wasnt feeling his fit


So.... I actually watched him play one time and will share a few thoughts. I'm not a hoops insider so take it with a grain of salt. Here were my note from the game:

- extremely athletic
- can drive to the rim
- can score at the rim
- very average/poor shooter at the high school level
- does not create for anyone else
vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv

I agree with all three of these quotes. I saw him play 3 times (twice in the state
tournament) and I was wondering about his fit with SMU. One thing to
add to the assessment above. He did not appear to crave playing defense.

Yes, we can always go out and get more people and recruit new players.
But we hired the kid's dad just so he would come here and it blew up in our face. That is the definition of a f--- up.

\
It only blew up b/c Dad didn't show up and do his job. Guy is used to high school and by all reports, couldnt handle the grind. He basically refused to travel. He was a dead weight bum who needed to go, tyrese or not. Beyond that, he was in a created position, so his impact was minimal. The only true loss here is maybe a years worth of salary. When you get rid of him before cycle, no worries.


Trivia question: Who made more money last year? Tyrone Maxey or Warren Young.
