    Do you know, or are you supposing?
    I was wondering what happened there. UH is a pretty good program and it wasn't that long ago that he committed.

    Starting to suspect this will be a semi-decent team.

    Coogs are deep, have talent, play their asses off and seem capable to overcome anything.
    Sampson took over absolute crap and turned it into a winning franchise.
    Hope is son is half a good.

    UH basketball was beyond crap when he took over. Hofheinz had to be one of the worst arenas in the country.

    I remember Kelvin would be out by the library trying to get students to go during his first season lol. Were lucky that we got him when we did cause we would have no shot at keeping a younger kelvin.

    I said when he was hired if he can't win here no one can.

    I don't follow high school hoops like I used to, but that UConn draft class, at least on paper, looks like they're going to be pretty good.

    This is just a flat out good team. Sampson really has a system in place that seems to grow and overcome whatever. Demonstrates the importance of good coaching.

    don't think it matters much besides making the AAC deeper bc UH is by far the best team in the conference going forward

    Was never a fan of UCONN's "we're better than this" fanbase. Granted, they have the basketball titles, but the football team was a huge drag on the conference. Ultimately, it was probably better for the American and UCONN for it to end up this way as they just weren't a fit and didn't want to play ball.

    I'm more thrilled with moving to a 20 game conference schedule and getting to play everyone else twice...while also, likely, increasing everyone's RPI/NET overall.

    Just saw something interesting about Francis he doesn't turn 17 until later this month. He could be 6'9 or more by the time he makes it to campus.
