    Just checked NCAA regs. It looks like a student can change schools even after signing a letter of intent, they just have to sit out a year.

    Man, such a mixed bag around here. Like and understand the optimism but the kool-aid Brad is selling is off the charts.

    That's his job though, glad he's good at it.

    Incorrect. They both signed during the early period in November.

    But Brad is right that other schools will try to poach them. All you need to do is ask for a release from your LOI and that is almost always granted.

    I doubt it will come to that. Neither of these kids strike me as flaky. They knew what they were doing when they signed and see no reason why they wouldn’t still be committed to Mason.

    They have signed, so they would have to ask for a release.

    Or they could pull a Quincy Douby - he purposely failed a high school class so that he wouldn't be eligible for Hofstra, went to prep for a year, and then ended up going to Rutgers.

    I wouldn’t want to go to Hofstra either. :D

    Really surprised when they went to the monitors last night at the end that we didn't get the ball. The stream had a decent replay of it and it looked pretty clear that it went out of bounds on the St Joes player. Luckily, it didn't matter.

    Probably not definitive proof that it grazed Mar's fingertips as it went out of bounds? It was pretty close.

    That hasn't stopped players from asking to be released from the NLIs after having a change of heart. I believe this happened to VCU in the past year or two with one of their pg recruits.

    Embarrassing if we lost to a team that has beaten the Bonnies and VCU? We also lead for 35 min of the game.

    Awesome win. I had to follow on gamecast and the last 2 minutes were brutal to follow. Once they scored with 5 seconds I was resigned to misery, only to be blown away a few seconds later. But man it took like 10 minutes for the play by play to update those last 21 seconds after their timeout. Obviously would have liked us to extend the double digit lead with 8 to play, but a win is a win is a win. I wouldn't put too much stock in what Edwards had to say. It's great that he was there and engaging, but what's he gonna say but anything positive?

    Nope- Boyd, Otis, Ji-ear (I still can't believe our PA guy won't pronnounce his name correctly- Ji Air), Mar and Kier.

    Just watched the post game presser. Players gave lots of credit to the coach and coaching staff...doesn't seem like a team that has given up on their coach.

    in that situation they had a coaching change. I am right they signed LOIs - yes they could ask for a release but not likely!!

    This - there shouldn't be any concern about our guys getting poached prior to enrolling.

    Embarassing that we had a double digit lead with around 5 mins to play and we almost blew it
