    Default Wju rumors....

    Any whispers in the MEC venues about who will come in to coach CARDINALS MBB ? It's 49 days without leadership and each day makes the job of salvaging a semblance of a program more difficult.....anyone out there ????

    Day 51... Maybe they're saving scholarship money for the 2 new sports, wrestling and football.

    You must have missed this in another thread:

Before joining the Mastodon’s staff prior to last season, he spent three seasons as the head coach at Indiana Tech (54-40). An official announcement here is expected shortly.

    Probably doing their due diligence. Want to make sure he is not prone to paying players out of sketchy bank accounts!!

    Don't know anything about this cat but he seems like a pretty good hire...at this late date. D1 assistant for a fairly good Purdue-Ft Wayne program. Three years HC experience at Indiana Tech were he led them to an NAIA national ranking and a trip to the NAIA championship tourney. Seems like a blue collar, lunch pale kind of guy.

    Interesting note...Looks like the teams he has been part of have been heavily involved in the Prep/JUCO/Transfer market. IF he has a tentative offer from WJ, he needs to be hitting his "sources" in those markets HARD starting yesterday! FIRST meeting he needs to have at 8:00 AM on his first day is with Preston Boswell in Magnolia to tell him in no uncertain words that HE wants him to lead the team...Second meeting that day needs to be with Bobby Bracket to offer him a full time assistant job...Day 2 he needs to drive into Maryland and meet individually with the three HS recruits that had previous offers with WJ and pitch the "unique opportunity" they have to come in and be starters from day 1.

    Guess the silver lining to having almost your entire team leave via graduation/transfer is you have plenty of scholarship $!! Every year there seems to be a number of players that have to take a summer class to graduate and become eligible. As most schools have committed all their scholly money by then, WJ could be in position to get a good player or two that they may not have been in position to get otherwise.

    Who was paid ???
    The Prep/Juco/Transfer market can be a really sketchy part of college basketball.
    Only question for PB is coach you know or new coach , either way he'll be close to 40 minutes per game.
    Recruits are always a question. Did you sign for the coach or the school ?
    Time is ticking.

    The irony .... he'll be going head to head for the leftovers with Sancomb. This year, anyway.

    I can't fathom why Boswell would consider staying. This is his 'out' and his coach is 35 miles away. Free transfer ... no sitting out.

    Granted, we may be hyping him a bit much. He's not going to have Highsmith or Moseh stealing all the defensive attention anymore.

    That's coach-speak. No matter what they say, about 90% sign with the coach -- not the school.

    Don't know who was paid...THAT's the million dollar question now isn't it??!!
    Prep/JUCO/Xfer market is sketchy. Some coaches have a nack and others don't. Seems like this cat has experience in this market as these types of players played significant parts of the Perdue-Ft Wayne roster while he was there last year and a significant part of the Indiana Tech roster when he was there. I would assume that he has a number of "contacts" who can let his interest in finding these type of players be known.
    I would note that unless WJ has given Boswell his release, it doesn't really matter how close Sancomb is. Boswell is going into his Senior campaign so it is doubtful he would be willing to sit out if WJ does not give him a release. Now that said, you want a willing engaged player so as a coach, you probably need to kiss his a$$ a little.
    I note that the recruits hadn't actually signed with WJ before Sancomb was fired so their attachment to him is at least debatable. Maybe they do love them some Danny, but maybe not. Make your strongest pitch and a top notch offer and see what happens.

    YES...Time is ticking...For BOTH teams!!!!

    I'm sure you meant to to say " I don't know if anyone was paid". Unless you have info you're not sharing.

    I am hearing Boswell has officially withdrawn from WJ and will be attending WL this fall and that Pegram is going to CAL.

    That's fantastic. What better way to stick it to WJ than by going up the hill. I assume that means he'll have to sit this year out, however.

    Pegram is a big land for Cal. Day 1 starter.

    Actually, Boswell just finished his sophomore year so he has 2 more years of college to play.

    Wrestling enters its 6th year at WJU and is by no means a new sport as it is already one of the premiere DII programs within the Region with no real area competition in the Ohio Valley...so that team can be taken out of any point you are trying to make regarding football and wrestling.

    My bad !! I was flipping past various CARDINALS athletics info and thought I saw it was just starting. Good luck to the grapplers of WJU.

    Well, don't be surprised to see Pegram be joined by Boswell at Cal as he already checked out the Mon Valley University
