    Drama in Clifton

    Hey look. I don't know if John Brannen is a good guy or not. All I know is that he is now the head coach of the Clifton Cretins and therefore the enemy. I look forward to building hate against him in some form. I do know one thing-those assclowns who are SucKS honks will always be the AntiChrist to me and I never want any good things in their basketball lives.

    In the meantime, it is pleasant to see that Brooks has entered the Transfer Portal and that Cumberland has placed his name in the NBA Draft and intends on hiring an agent, although now that means he could still come back. I read somewhere that Samari Curtis was "rumored" to be reconsidering his LOI and was "thinking" of pulling away from the Borecats. Has anyone heard anything on this or has there been any report on this?

    Any more word on the continuing drama as stories developed would be appreciated and posted here. Nice to see that clifton college is a steppingstone program in both football and basketball and that the unending Thuggins coaching string has finally been broken. That circus played in town way too damn long. Hope they enjoy their lives in the purgatory of the AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAC.

    As is true with us, it all comes back to recruits. It's not easy to convince 4 and 5 stars to play in the AAC.

    I think you will see a completely different brand of basketball and basketball player as this evolves at UC. I think Brannen will follow more of Xavier's recruiting profile than Micks or Huggins.

    There's no reason that the AAC should be a major impediment to them recruiting well and having an excellent program. In football? Sure. But in basketball there's no reason they can't be more than fine. But I will enjoy it when they suck!

    There are a few obstacles to recruiting in the aac. 1. Their media rights deal is awful. Recruits will be on national tv like twice a year. 2. The geography of the conference is all over the place. Uconn, temple, and Cincinnati have to recruit guys to go play Tulsa, Ecu, and USF

    Penny has had success so far with aau connections and who knows how long that will last and UConn has done a good job under Hurley. Itís possible to recruit well but there are certainly disadvantages

    Memphis pays too well to not get recruits. They've been real dirty for at least 30 years.

    It will depend on how much success Brannen has. If he is routinely getting to the Sweet 16 or Elite 8, heíll be able to recruit better talent. The first few years will be tough.

    Yep and no reason not to. Miller and Wade were just told no worries, keep doing what you are doing. Some one from the investigation just said Sean is clearly paying players but doesnít need to testify but we will turn over to the NCAA. Meaning he is good to go.

    Also, UCLA should be in great shape. Mick's bringing the significant ingredient with him.
