bring back the freshmen teams
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

They already did. They are called mid major and below D1 teams

I did enjoy the freshman then varsity games at old Schmidt; did not enjoy seeing who would flunk out after first semester grades (Frank Pinchback, Roy Thompson, etc.)

Powell is looking at IU, WVU, and Mich State. Mentioned red shirting him and he wants to play. He wasn’t happy with all the transfers coming in.

Gym From Deli. Are you talking about Rudy Thompson 1970 from West Virginia? I was there the same year and he averaged like 26 points a game. Great guy and not to interested in school but a major talent. He could really score,

Muskieman ( freshman team ) that's a great idea but it's all about the money now. By the way have you recovered from your surgery ?

I didn't realize Powell was consider a guard. No wonder he moved on. I thought he was a small forward.

Kevin, I think Roy Thompson was at X earlier than ‘70, more like 62-65. He lasted a year at most
