  • The only way he would get the questions to stop is to say that he is 100% committed to the Hogs.  Any other response will keep the questions coming.

  • Hogdayafternoon, still not liking our chances of seeing Reggie in a hog Jersey? Any word if he's going to play with the Hawks again?

    Yeah I think that's being very optimistic.

    Last I heard, he was still with the Hawks. Not going to share my opinion on how this ends, because the last time I gave my opinion (when asked if there was reason for concern) someone made a false representation on Twitter than I had confirmed RP had de-committed (or was de-committing), and we saw how well that played out.

  • If he's going to jump ship, I hope he just go ahead and  jumps ship until he's sure where he wants to go.

    Why do you do this tho?  I'm STILL waiting on you to give the big story you promised on why Rodgerick Brown stopped being a Hog target!

  • Why do you do this tho?  I'm STILL waiting on you to give the big story you promised on why Rodgerick Brown stopped being a Hog target!

    What am I doing exactly? You expected a "big story" from me regarding RB situation that I never even hinted I would give. There was no big story, and I never said there was. I said he was still being evaluated even though he had an offer, thus it was conditional. I also said that evaluation is not just about on-court development. When someone else posted that he was looking to re-class, it let me off the hook a bit to elaborate. I did not want to introduce a young man's academic status, but once it was out there, I chimed in (not sure which thread it was) and confirmed that he would either re-class to 2017 or go to prep school in 2018.

    Anyway, here's what I said below (pulled from a Rodgerick Brown thread that was started in March) ...

    On Rodgerick Brown, he is still under "evaluation" and unless something has changed since Tuesday night, his offer is still not committable. "Evaluation" is a coverall for all sorts of things, not just about the on-court performance of just that one player. I'm not going to spill specifics because it would not be appropriate.


    EDIT at 8:13 p.m. Wed., June 28, 2017 ... below is where I did elaborate (found this in a more recent RB thread) ... notice that another poster is the one who brought out that RB was too old to play HS next season (plus RB was telling a Memphis TV guy about his possible re-class around the same time) ... so I felt it was a more appropriate time to say more ...

    He's reclassifying because he's too old to play on the high school team next year

    This was the dilemma I could not/would not go into. Since it is out there, RB will be too old to play at Cordova (TN) next year, which meant he would either re-classify to 2017 OR go to a prep school in 2017-18. He had a Hog offer but it was conditional (not committable) as they were "monitoring and evaluating" his situation as well as what other needs and prospects came into the picture for the program.

  • He will probably give that information when he wants to if he wants to. If he said that he would tell us , it will be forthcoming at an appropriate time. That is his decision, not yours. I would be thinking it would be after Brown signs somewhere.

    Exactly. He's respecting Brown's privacy.

    I'm not a big fan of those posts either, except in situations when I can give enough info to help inform (like RB having a conditional offer) without giving the reason why when it would have been the wrong thing to do at the time. By introducing the notion months ago this was not as simple as "he has a UA offer and the Hogs are his leader, so why doesn't he just commit?" -- had I (and others) not elaborated a little to fill in some background there -- posters would still be scratching their heads and blaming the staff for letting RB get away. Some will do that anyway.

    I don't come on here to puff out my chest and act like I'm something I'm not. I love basketball, follow it closely, and my goal is to cover it and get good, reliable info out there for fans who want it. When asked my opinion, I give that, too, and do my best to separate that from fact. If you don't like the way I bring it, I'm sorry you feel that way.

    What? Hogday was asked two questions, he answered one and gave more than justifiable reasoning for not answering the other one. He's actually the antithesis of the porkatarian types who would simply say "some will be happy, some will not....."

    You're chastising one of the only posters on here who brings actual information on a regular basis (not that I'm saying those of us without info can't make good posts). Maybe stop doing that?

  • Apparently Calipari reached out to the Knicks regarding the President job opening - hopefully these recruits realize that he does not give a sh.it about them and will jump ship to better himself when the moment presents itself with a better opportunity.

  • Until he states he is decommited, any Arkansas fan should only make positive statements like Can't wait to see you in a Hog uniform, I think we are going to play for a championship when you get to Arkansas.  Plants positive thoughts and builds him up in the program.  Everything else plants the idea to leave and increases the odds it will happen.

    Bingo.  I've been staying out of here specifically to avoid the over reaction/negative reaction.  This is a good kid and family, and if they change their mind for whatever reason don't look at it as a knock on MA who showed him love early worked it the right way and got the commit.  That's all he can do.  The entire time after this up until now the family has been very positive about the Hogs so the coaches had no reason to worry.

    Until then why not be positive as hell.  Sure one could argue it won't help but it sure as heck won't hurt. The only thing that hurts is negative backlash and people showing their ass towards him his family or our coaches.  Even if people aren't negative toward the kid they should not be negative towards MA, the program or staff during that time.  You think that helps recruiting.  All anyone does by being negative is hurt the program, show their true selves as not being a fan but after a 26 win season, just a negative POS.

    I'm going to take Lanny's well thought out advice and enjoy the summer and whatever happens happens.  We have a great season ahead in many sports.

    It is so obvious by the plethora of information he shares that he loves basketball. What makes his reports so enjoyable is the astuteness with which he assesses each player's abilities. His eye is better than anybody I know. It has to be frustrating when people misquote him. However, he is very professional and patiently explains their errors. I've yet to see anyone apologize. Some people aren't man enough to admit when they're wrong.

  • Whatever happens from this point, it's just Exhibit 1,279,345 why as the song goes, 'it don't mean nothin' til they sign it on the dotted line'. Remember the 80s Richard Marx song?

    I get excited about commitments too, but I get most excited when their fax actually comes in.

    This sounds like a classic case of the big boys getting in Perry's ear. He committed here a year ago when he wasn't such a hot commodity. Sounds pessimistic, yea, but probably accurate. Ark is not on the 'big boy' level right now. He's a hot prospect now and suddenly thinking 'hey, I need to listen to some of these blue blood programs and see what they say'.
