Pitt or Rhode Island would definitely be a step up in pay division, Drake I just don't think would be a big enough jump for him to make the move. The teams also would have to have interest, gotta think Moser from Loyola-Chicago is going to be on a short list for a few places after this run but will be interesting to see if he's looking to make a move or not.
    Scatch Pitt from the list......just hired Capel, an assist. coach for Coach K at Duke.

    Funny thing is when i first heard that I thought he was nuts thinking he'd be stupid to go pro at this point; then I found out he is grad-transfer eligible and it all made sense......good move by Mr. Mooney. Some P5 school should come calling as he has the talent to play at that level.

    He's been touring high majors for a couple weeks. Big time schools.
    Everyone just relax, all right? Believe me, if there's one thing Ron Burgundy knows, it's women.

    More bad news for the yotes, 2018 commit Tauriawn Knight who asked for his release earlier and was granted will be following Craig to Utah State. Mooney is considering Utah State as well.


    Wouldnt be surprised if they go after Sam Griesel who just got his release from USD.

    While that's great, shouldn't he be shooting a little higher at USU? Is the cupboard that bare there he needs to reach and bring in low to mid-major kids?
    check neg rep

    Warning: It is the offseason. Trollolol may or may not be in full swing. Take a deep breath and eat a trolli burger before reading my posts.

    Cupboard is fairly bare at Utah State...and the gap between what he is doing now vs in Vermillion is pretty small, he must feel they are plenty good to play for him, and the kids were committed to him. If he can get Mooney, that would be HUGE! Mooney has bigtime offers! Summit will be very up for grabs after SDSU next year. I am hoping FOrt Wayne loses that superstar kid to a grad transfer as well. Will help our young backcourt adjust. Losing some real star power in the Summit next year.
