Best case he'll be a spark off the bench, worse case he'll be a notch above passing out the water bottles.

On the other hand, who wouldn't go to a (not so very long ago) national champ team?

He'll play a role where he won't ge overly exposed by having to do too much. I believe he'll contribute

My uneducated guess is shooting guard in for defense. I don't think he can be faulted for making the step up when the opportunity presented itself.

Good for AA. Antwoine gave us some really enjoyable plays while he was at FU.  Between Eric P., CS and AA going to very good teams, in a back hand way, it reflects some good light on the program which unfortunately won't be notice by anyone except real college BB junkies.

Its really just a crazy situation now in college basketball.  And it hits across all lines. The IVYs are getting hit every year like this and so is every conference. Truly out of control and getting worse every year.

Agreed.  We have some good players transferring out.  I get it. Where are the ones who can really play transferring in?

Interesting comments by the VCU and Richmond coaches on the graduate transfer rule. Last few questions of the following article:

Just limit eligibility to undergrads--you graduate, you're done. Go play pro, or just get a regular job and play in an adult league. Who cares? Is eligibility to play intercollegiate athletics some kind of birthright?

Clearly, you haven't been in Storrs recently. It isn't The Bronx, but it's not the cow pasture that you obviously remember. Major build up along Route 195, including movie theaters and shopping.

People that live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. They have state of the art athletic facilities do we? Maybe AA will feel comfortable with the cows considering he played in a dump of a barn for 3 years.

Or maybe AA is the guy that Rhodes talked about being recruited by a desperate coach recruiting to fill holes because his team imploded. 

Get your passports ready we are going international.

Thank you. Reading Rhoades' comments I could not help but think of AA. Hopefully I am wrong on that.

International it will be if national doesn't pan out.  Best would be combo of the two.

Oh. So you've seen the Webster Bank Basketball Center?  It compares favorably with the historic RHG, I'm told.  And the national championship trophies on display... All won in his lifetime.  And the daily coverage from all the state's newspapers and tv stations.   Ya, who in his right mind would want to finish up his career there?  Give me a break.

The speculation here is laughable. UCONN has won national championships. Anyone would go there if they got the chance. Nobody, including Anderson, said one word about facilities. Its an obvious move upward that needs no explanation.

You're missing the point.  Now that he's left Fordham he'll be culturally starved. No more afternoons at The MET, theatre openings or museums.  Is t that why he chose Fordham in the first place?

If the UConn coach is desperate, then I guess JN is in good company.

We are talking about UCONN specifically their offering Anderson when without the transfers and the top 100 guard getting released from his LOI he would not even get a visit.  As Rhodes points out these gits think they are going to better situation and just looking on the surface most would react like 85 of course you go to UCONN. But when you look closer they are being sold a bill of goods and the grass is not greener.

I agree with that. I suspect AA is expecting to start at UConn. I think he will come off the bench and TBD how many minutes he gets. But he could be correct and I could be wrong. I like AA so I hope I am wrong.

JN added Ton to the staff knowing that he has international connections.  I'm not sure if us landing some oversees guys means we had to panick and settle for them as plan B.  Though I'm sure many on this board will act that way.

Also, even if they are a last resort, CS was too and he turned out well except for the fact that he matriculated too fast Grin

Last chance for AA to dance. Which school do you think gives him a better shot at doing that next year, UConn or Fordham?

As of today:

UConn- 30%
Fordham- 5%

That is just my wild guess. But if going to the dance is his main objective then he should have gone to Iona.

Perhaps he wants a chance to win a game in the dance too.  Can't do that if you don't play defense

A conference that only gets one bid a year is a bit risky. Yeah I know Iona is always in the mix given the weak conference but its no picnic having to win the tournament on Siena's home court.

That is true. But as of right now, Siena will be down and Iona will be favored to win the MAAC.

Anytime you're going from a sub-.500 mid-major program to a program like UConn, even if they're rebuilding, the grass is much, much greener.  To think otherwise is not dealing in reality v
