    It says on his profile he is a forward, which would be much better for us in 2010.

    Now we just need someone with 'Ram' in his name.

    Does Coach just like focusing on backcourt for two years and then frontcourt for two?

    Weatherspoon and Latham are two forwards already commited for this class, so this would be a 3rd forward. Last year Sean brought in 5 guards and a center. Next year Parrom, a forward, is commited.

    This kid must be doing something right. He has half the Big East on his tail. Go X!

    Xavier became the latest major school to offer a scholarship to 6-8 junior Rod Odom of the Middlesex (Ma.) School, according to Rod Odom Sr.

    Odom, who projects as a 6-8 shooting guard, now holds offers from Boston College, Rutgers, Seton Hall, Xavier, West Virginia, William & Mary and Holy Cross, with Notre Dame, Vanderbilt, Memphis, Georgia Tech, UConn, PItt, Virginia, Stanford, Princeton, Harvard and Columbia also interested.

    A 6-8 shooting guard?! I know that is what the article says but that is some length.
    Rivals has him as a SF, but either way, he sounds like an athletic freak.

    Given that he's been offered by half the Ivy League, my guess is no.

    The Odom family owes Xavier a break... Lamar's shot to beat Temple in the 1999 A-10 tourney finals single handedly kept Xavier out of the NCAA's. X was a major bubble team that year and the selection committee was only going to allow three A-10 schools in (Temple, GW and Rhody made it). Rhody wins they're in... Rhody losses Xaviers in. BULL SHIT!!!

    I was in Vegas this past spring and ran into Lamar at the Ceasars Palace aquarium. He had on a ridiculous rolex, I asked him; "Did Coach Harrick get you that watch?"

    I don't think he got it; I did.

    It has taken almost 10 years for me to forgive him but I have, since David West lit him up for 40 and 12 the other night (Odom got hurt in the second quarter, so not really).
