He sounds like a solid candidate for an all out tRCMB assault. Expose him and his business for attacking a young MSU athlete like that. What a piece of shit.
I agree. He is on Linkedin. I have no idea what a Sontera GRP is, though.
Mommy a paper pusher for the city of Taylor?

The single reason I believe we will be much better next year is Dawson turning into a 10ppg type player. Just having the threat of him scoring would be a huge boost. It was our single biggest problem all year that when he and Nix were on the court together there was no real need to worry about the 3pt line.
He averaged over 10 a game for the vast majority of the year, i would think he ended up in the 9 range

He averaged 8.9ppg. I should have been more specific. He'll be a 10ppg scorer in EVERY game. Not just the first half of the season. I would expect him to have more energy with an entire offseason to work through. I also think that Appling was hurt far worse than he let on after the Minnesota game. Before the Minnesota game he was shooting 55% from the field and 38% from 3pt range. After he shot 36% from the field and 29% from 3pt range.
If Dawson is as active in the Duke game as he was during the front portion of the B1G season, we fare much better.
If Appling doesn't get hurt and continues to shoot well from the field, we fare much better.
If Trice doesn't get hurt and plays like he did in the middle portion of the season (almost 8ppg average), we fare much better.
There are a lot of reasons I feel that Michigan State will be better. The biggest one being that Dawson should get better in the mid range and develop at least a decent jump shot from 10-15 feet.
Most teams don't put 4 3-pt shooters in at the same time. Our 3 can't shoot from downtown while most can but our 4 could where most can't. Who was stepping out there when Hutson and Z-Bo played together?
Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance
This. Who is this Matt Riddle and why hasn't tRCMB unleasehd it's full cyber stalking and bullying powers on him yet?
Both were good from 15ft. Both were 60%+ from the field as well. Dawson and Nix were low 50's and had no range really. Nix was one of my favorite Spartans but he had a ton of limitations.
Within 5 minutes a few of these twitter assholes' home addresses, work addresses, photobucket/facebook accounts and family details (wife's work address, childrens' schools...) are found pretty easily.......
This post made me realize how many inexperienced white forwards we are counting on for overall success next year. Does not make me optimistic.
I'm going to attribute my mis-spelling to autocorrect and a lack of proofreading.
If Payne stays it will help them score more. But if we have to rely on them next year Izzo is going to have to pull some magic out of his ass.
He runs a company. Become a maker and you, too, can be the asshole you secretly long to be.

So wait, if you own or run a company you get to be an asshole?
I've seen nothing to think so.
Causality is backwards. Become a large enough asshole and you have to run your own company because nobody will let you work for them.
That happened to Gauna in multiple games.
That seems to be the trend nowadays...
Wasn't that against Gonzaga?
Please tell me the differences aside from uni numbers and note if any will be usdful next year.
Good point with Granger. But Naymick and Thornton...are you being sarcastic? I hope you didn't expect me to get excited with the thought of getting a guy to go from 1 ppg to 4 ppg from his soph to senior seasons.
Costello hustles his ass off and doesn't mind some hard contact.
I would argue Thornton was a dramatically better player by his senior year. It's not just about ppg. He was a legit 3 point threat, a good leader, and a smart player. When a game was getting tight, I wanted to see Thornton on the floor.
Contrast that to Dahlman or Herzog. Good guys, but they took a scholie for 4-5 years and didn't contribute a whole heckuva lot on the floor.
Point is, is it wise to invest 4-5 years into a guy who won't contribute for 3-4 years, and maybe not at all?
Problem is, they don't recruit these kids with the line of thinking that they won't be contributors. Even the best teams only have 8 or 9 man rotations, meaning they all have 3-5 scholarship players that don't contribute on a regular basis. I have to respect Izzo for not routinely running kids off that don't pan out.
