    See that I’ll 100% buy. It’s this wild idea that old stinky strop is pushing that we can somehow circumvent NCAA regs on scholarship athletes.

    Wouldn't it be the ultimate Paulsen thing to start next year with an open scholarship? Say not only do boyd/kier not return, but we have a transfer or two and then struggle to fill out the roster. Based on his history, that seems much more likely than the "everyone comes back" scenario.

    Weren't we also recently linked to another 2020 recruit? Could it be because we don't actually expect everyone back?

    DP is now 80-82 overall and 38-51 in A10 play. Sigh.

    Doing some advanced math, DP would have to practically run the table in the A10 next year (16 and 2 or better) just to break even by the end of the year...

    We are so low, we would be happy with Jackie Chan at this point!

    OK, I'll name-drop. Do the people Bill Rohland and Andy Ruge ring a bell with you, or is your d!ckhead too puny and shriveled to comprehend? Beside venom and spoooge, what do you contribute to this forum, or the human herd for that matter?

    Lmao bill rohland literally knows jack shit about anything and Andy ruge is not a source lol. Both I and @tblack33 gave you some money last year when you were begging for it on the board. So when you ask what someone contributes you can start with paying your printing costs since printing 15 pages was such a burden on your budget. so don’t bite the hand that fed your chant sheets that ended up being ripped up by a 90 year old security guard you were afraid of

    gotcha Matt. People just so quick to shit on those that help them out. This whole program including 75% of the fans is a disaster

    Matt, I need to make two more statements and I'm done, I'll leave the potty mouth in the sewer.

    Yes, Sleeperpick, you donated $20 to my cause last year. I asked you later if you wanted it back. You said for me to give it to GMUJim to help buy him a ticket to a home game, remember? Additionally, I have been trying to find you to give the money back. Obviously, I have not been successful. I have returned others' money and I will get to you if and when we cross paths again.

    I don't care what you contribute in terms of cash to me or the university. When I made an attempt at a Cheer Guide, I was unemployed and could not afford to spend $250 for photocopying services. The question posed is, what does TBlack (and now you) contribute meaningfully to this forum aside from vitriol, wild assumption, and fantasy? I'm still waiting for an answer...

    Yep, here I am trying to contribute meaningfully and I get shat upon. Sound familiar?

    Take it to private messaging if you have beef with him.

    I’m locking the thread to let you guys cool off.

    I blame Paulsen for not having enough OT games.

    Everything you stated in the first paragraph is true. I donated because you had a great idea and needed help. Yes, please get Jim to a home game with those funds I don't want them back.

    This whole argument started when you stated everyone is coming back including Kier and Boyd (where math, NCAA policy and common sense don't back that up)and then hours later you back tracked and got called out for it. That sounds like wild assumption and fantasy to me. As much as we like to think we are absolutely right, we all talk to different people that can be wrong sometimes.

    Like someone said earlier "There are about 15 real fans left we should spend less time attacking each other". So I apologize for my negative comments towards you. I get you love the program and tried last year to get students more involved much like the ByGeorge guys do on a regular basis.

    Our students suck as do the majority of our elderly fans. It is a tough realization for most of us as times have changed since the L days and even early Hewitt when many of us were still excited.

    Time is ticking on my donating patience ( I am not rich but I am also not a 22 year old loser with no job like P8triotfan stated)

    Not to be captain save a h*& to another man but I probably wouldn't have kept donating while serving our country overseas and then moving to another state far away for two years like TBlack did in order to give his seats away to other potential donors (one actually bought full season tix because of experience). So I think some of your judgment is misplaced. He simply said what you said was backtracking and that neither scenario can legally work (which it absolutely can't)

    I don't call Paulsen a fat chubby MT Dew drinking loser like some of our really negative fans. I just don't think this job in the A10 for a school like ours is for him. 5 years is proof in the pudding. A Shevon Thompson level big man recruit (I get he improved him a ton) is not walking through that door and never will be. I am also saddened about the recent Javon Greene stuff and hope that will calm down as we will be pretty shitty next year if we are without Javon (unlikely), Kier and Boyd. That puts a lot of pressure on 3 freshman and the virtually unknown Daddy.

    It is time to move on from Paulsen and I am sure he will find success back in the patriot league or lower equivalent.

    My man, Sleeperpick... apology accepted.

    I want to make one thing clear. I did not state any predictions about who is staying or leaving, etc. I stated that I heard information from two people who prominently serve Mason Basketball regarding the disposition of players on the team. I reported what I was told to the members of this forum. I reiterate that I did not make any assumptions, presumptions, or prognostications.

    Upon TBlack reading my posts, I get summarily attacked for making inane suppositions. When I am attacked I am going to mount a fierce counter attack. Again, I reported what I heard then I got gobsmacked because of it — I didn't say it, I only repeated it. Rhetorically speaking, is that fair? No. Certainly, I have been around long enough not to believe everything that I hear. However, I believe the persons that I heard information from are credible individuals and I felt that their statements to me needed to be retold. The moral is, "Don't shoot the messenger."

    Yes,, my counter attacks are viscous. But keep in mind, I don't like it when people project their own reading comprehension deficiencies upon the credibility of the writer. Again, is that fair? No.

    I apologize in kind, and to T'Black, for overeacting. It's a problem that I am trying to correct.

    P.S. I will return your $20 even if I have to stuff two sawbucks into your pockets.

    No offense Jack, but you really shouldn’t be dropping people’s names here who are connected to the AD. If somebody really did give you info about our players, I’m willing to bet they won’t anymore after seeing you identify “sources” by name here.
