    Sorry if I missed something on the boards, but the article seems to indicate Kier is not coming back. Talks about two graduating seniors.

    Maybe it's the 17 beers while sheltered in place or the fact that we've heard this hype countless times before......It's time for DP and the program to shut up and put up by winning. I hope Polite lives up to the hype, is A10 rookie of the year, and then 3 time first teamer, but money talks and bulls&t walks. I'll believe it when I see it.

    I'm glad to have Polite on board. Certainly seems like a good ballplayer from everything I've read and seen. Hoping this class continues the trend of recruiting improvement that we've seen.

    It's very telling how this article is the first in a series about local players. With so many elite players coming out of the DMV, why has Ronald Polite's commitment to Mason taken the opening write-up?

    Maybe they were just trying to be polite.

    Why is there no eye-roll reaction we can press?

    I just found it humorous that George Mason's offense was considered to be "up tempo" lol

    Love what I'm seeing on Polite's highlight video. Can't help but think that the best is yet to come with him.

    Hopefully he is mean on the court (from the looks of things he does), we don't need him to be polite.

    This article finally made today's print edition of the Post. About 1/3 of the back page of the Sports section which is only about 3 pages these days.

    ...and not even it's own section. "Sports" makes up three pages in the back of the "Style" section then followed by Classifieds! Urrrrghhhhhh... I'm feeling sick... :dead:

    No live sports = almost nothing to cover

    I’m surprised more papers haven’t suspended their sports sections while everything is shut down. Given staffing limitations these days, those sports reporters could be used to help with news coverage. That’s where they are needed.

    I think I saw a Goff byline on a short story updating a development on covid-19 early last week in the Post.

    Jesus, his athleticism is so casual. He doesn't look like he's really gathering himself, but he just goes up, up, up.

    You watch the video and it feels like he's 6'6.

    He’s what a coaching friend of mine likes to call a “glider.” He doesn’t look like he’s moving that quickly because everything is effortless.

    Definitely plays taller than 6-2.
