    I suspect both Ark. State and La Tech are not participating due to concern they could not cover the small fee to host.

    I haven't heard Techs reason for not playing, but Arkansas State's AD said the decision was made by the coach and players. Their goals were much higher and they didn't achieve them. I find that point of view refreshing.

    It appears Arkansas State is not participating, at least in part, due to its head coach accepting the North Texas job.

    I don't think that is why Ark. State is not playing in post season. They also went into a slump at the end of the year. I think Josh's reason is the most likely answer for their decision. I see Georgia State and Texas State are playing in the CIT. I know their coaches have high goals as well.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the transfers as well as incoming freshman Cedric Russell, who looks to be the real deal. I was surprised that at one time he was considered by some to be the #5 combo guard in the country.

    Once Russell decommitted from LSU and signed with the Cajuns his star ranking dropped from 4 to 3. I don't know how we will do in college as he is more like 6'1" than 6'3" which may impact him defensively. There is no denying he can shoot however. A 50% three point shooter can stroke it no matter what level he plays at in HS.

    For 2016-2017, for thirty-nine games he averaged 22.4PPG, 6RPG, 4.5APG, and 2.6SPG. He also hit 53% of his three's, 52% of his two's, and 86% from the free throw line.

    Jay Wright was a smallish 6'1" guard who garnered defensive player of the year.

    Good point. We do not know how Russell will do defensively but Jay has shown size is not the only factor when it comes to that part of the game.

    That sounds like saying they were punished for not reaching their goals. If this is announced earlier in the season, it would be more believable.

    The subject of unmet goals and expectations haunts me.

    When I was 5 my mom gave me and my older sister some coffee milk.

    My older sisters cup was larger than mine.

    I poured mine in the sink.

    She did not make me another cup.

    I don't think pouring the season in the sink is refreshing.

    I will never get that coffee milk back.

    Question for Josh, why is the Ark State head coach leaving for North Texas? Is it because of pay. SBC was quite a bit ahead of CUSA this year. Also, UNT fights all the Dallas pro teams as well as SMU/TCU in the area for attention. There is none of that at Ark. State as they are the focus teams for the area. Maybe he had another connection at that school. On the other hand Texas not having an income tax may be a factor in the decision.

    That's what I was hoping for with Register. Didn't really pan out as he never found his shot in college.

    Sean Payton.

    Many thought he was headed to the Dallas Cowboys when he changed main residence

    Made me laugh. Shawn Long was 6-11 here, 6-9 in Philly
