    The thing that jumps off the screen watching Shawndale is he's a house -- very strong and fast. He looks like a 6'4" linebacker. They used him a lot in the post last season. He also has a nice deep shot. His main strength seems to be his ability to drive the basket.

    He’s already every PSAC play by play man’s worst nightmare.

    The 2018-19 season highlight tape is now up on the web site. It was nicely done. They left some really odd stuff out of it, but nonetheless.

    From the Twitter: "An Illinois native, ‘Tommy’ joins us after spending the two seasons at Northern Illinois." I don't know how you get Tommy from his name but it's definitely easier to say than his full name.

    Wonder who Coach Cal knows in the D2 ranks? Hmmmm. The last paragraph was interesting.


    Not that there's room for him, per se, but, ... favors are favors. I think Cal could afford to pay admission at IUP.

    He could be a walk-on. Joe would redshirt him anyway.

    The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel approved moving the 3-point line to the international basketball distance of 22 feet, 1¾ inches (from 20 feet, 9 inches) in Division I men’s basketball. The line won't be moved back in Division II and III until the 2020-21 season due to possible financial restrictions of repainting every court.

    I'm not sure what this will do for teams around here, but I'd imagine it helps teams like IUP and West Liberty who want to spread it out while also helping a team like Slippery Rock, which wants to bruise it out down low. Double teams can't come quite as fast if you're guarding the 3-point line a foot and a half farther from the lane. A Mercyhurst-style team that wants to pack it in on defense might be hurt by this. All told, I'm sure everything will even out in a few years considering the NCAA moved the line back a foot about 10 years ago and there seems to be no problems. Players nowadays shoot several feet beyond the line anyway so their ability likely isn't going to be hurt, but muscle memory of knowing where you are on the court without looking down might take a few reps.

    That's nothing. Read the PG story. RMU is looking into whether he committed NCAA violations while still working there.

    Maybe Brad could be the player-coach at his dad's alma mater.

    I read USA Today article. He was recruiting 8th graders in April to his high school (Central Catholic) while he was coach at the high school. He also implied he was still organizing basketball camp at RMU and would give a discount if they mentioned Central Catholic.
    Here is excerpt from the article.
    ------
    As reported by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Central Catholic (Pittsburgh, Penn.) boys basketball coach Brian Urso faces charges of recruiting eighth grade student athletes through emails since he took the position in late April.

    Urso, the former Robert Morris director of basketball administration, allegedly sent emails to a number of eighth grade basketball players asking them to attend open gym sessions at Central Catholic. That outreach could allegedly be considered a recruiting violation, which is allegedly carries with it a one-year suspension for coaches.

    While Urso will defend himself against the charges on Wednesday at a Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League (WPIAL) hearing, there are additional NCAA charges that could land his former employer in hot water, too. Per the Post-Gazette, Urso included an application for the Robert Morris Boy’s Basketball Camp, explicitly saying that he was still organizing the camp and could provide a discount if applications mentioned Central Catholic.

    If so, that would make Urso an employee of Robert Morris, which would be an NCAA violation.

    If it's any condolence, EVERY coach in EVERY sport at Central Catholic gets accused of 'recruiting' athletes there. This story goes back decades.

    For those not in the know, Pittsburgh Central Catholic is a private school within the city (near the Pitt campus). This is the alma mater of Dan Marino (among many other stars).

    It has had a long-standing reputation of 'somehow' landing many of the top football players in the WPIAL (and beyond) on a yearly basis. Coincidence, I'm sure.

    If the accusations are true ... what a rookie mistake. Emails leave paper trails. Every time.

    Not to open a can of works, but isn't this is pretty much true of any private school? Erie Cathedral Prep gets accused of the same thing. I know very little about this topic, but I thought that some level of selling your high school program to prospective students is within the rules. For example, I am certain that C Prep made a run at McDowell star Will Jeffress, but I would assume that the McDowell coaching staff attempted to sell him on staying in his district and attending McDowell.

    Full disclosure ... my kids attend McDowell and are involved in athletics (not the big sports like football or basketball), but I am not one of the C Prep "haters." I focus most of my Erie sports-watching on Gannon.

    Prep did make a run at Jeffress but when Prep refused to pay his tuition and they didn't want daddy near the bench/practices, Jeffress stayed at McDowell.

    Prep has the luxury of being one of just two private high schools in Northwest PA. In my experience, they also have a grossly overinflated academic reputation. I've met quite a few Prep alumni and not one struck me as well-educated or adequately prepared. Anyway, they discount tuition based on need and get kids to play sports for them who would be stuck in overlooked places like Meadville and Fairview. Their parents get to brag that their kid goes to Prep. The one thing I admire is the sense of fraternity among alumni. They're a loyal bunch. My supposition is - in Erie and to Erie people - a Prep HS diploma can be more valuable than your college degree. You don't see that with the Pittsburgh Catholic high schools.

    That's all fine, but what is legal and what is illegal in "recruiting" for high schools? No high school that I know has a compliance department and the PIAA and other state governing bodies don't have the coffers to launch expensive investigations.
