Get used to it. There some pretty nasty people here so I only post occassionally and that is to tweak them a bit.
You know the sites where I share information and you can pm me here.
Personally, I'm just happy that he is speculating.
Now that James Young is apparently gone, Williams, Brown, and Parker are a must get.
Three must gets for two available spots? That IS demanding excellence
What if someone goes pro?
I wouldn't concede James Young just yet. Just because one source says it's down to those 2 doesn't mean he really is. How many unnamed sources have been sited over the years and a decent amount of them turn out to be wrong. Izzo has been after him for a while and I think it would be really hard for an in-state kid to leave to go play at Syracuse. I still think we're number 2.
Why do we think we're going to have 2 basketball players and 6 football players leave early every year?
Could just be me, but I am not conceding anything yet. When James himself says its down to 2 without MSU in it then I might believe it, but not an unidentified source without a direct quote. If Kentucky gets the Harrison twins and Wiggins decides to reclassify to 13 and commits to Kentucky, which has a decent chance of happening imo, then I could definitely see Young go elsewhere even if Kentucky was his preferred choice. Its also far from a sure thing that Poythress and Goodwin go pro after their frosh years which could change Cal's plans on how many SG/SF types he wants out of the 13 class.
He was definitely at the game today. He was on the field with Izzo & the crew.
Edit: after reading the Johnathon Williams thread it might have been him instead.

I thought the same thing....all the bball players sit in front of me at SS so I always try to look who's there. I think that was JWIII sitting w Dray and Kleegan. If he came on campus, we'd know about it.
Julius randle cuts duke from list. Does this increase their efforts of recruiting and chances of landing parker?
According to MLive Parker is looking to schedule an official visit with us.
How about the fact that Parker is and always has been our number #1 target? Can't really say that with Duke and Randlee
Interesting article on Jabari, pretty much saying a lot of things we already know. Still I felt like it should be posted in this here thread.
Jabari Parker, the nation's No. 1-ranked senior, will make official visits to Duke and Michigan State and will soon add three other schools to his top-5 list before making a commitment in November, his father said on Tuesday.
Good to officially know he'll announce in November. There were some saying he would hold off till spring.
Jabari has scheduled official visits with MSU, Duke, and Florida. He is expected to make two more officials to round out a top five.
Official Top 5: Duke, BYU, Michigan State, Florida, and Stanford. He scheduled his first 2 visits with Duke and Michigan State. I feel like its a three way race with Duke BYU and us.
The BYU thing isn't happening. Duke is too far away, so is BYU.
All signs point to one school. He will be a Spartan.
Now if we could get him to commit early, it would help with Cliff Alexander and Tyus Jones.
His dad said he is still on track to make a November decision.
When asked about Jabari tonight, he said its up to the team to play well because it will help recruiting.
When who was asked about Jabari? (Sorry if i missed the implied source)
Izzo, my bad.
No problem I figured it was Izzo or Someone in Parker's circle. Glad it's the former.
Hope this doesn't actually happen
The basketball future of Jabari Parker, the nation's No. 1-ranked senior, could be impacted by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' recent decision to lower the age of when men are allowed to serve a mission, his father said on Monday.
I appreciate that the kid is committed to his religion, but it would just our luck if the best recruit to potentially come to MSU in years ends up fucking us over for a religious mission. I have a hard time believing that he would leave Izzo (or any other coach) out in the cold like this, but I suppose that it's possible.
