    You would think...

    Two things enter my mind. One, the rumors aren't as true as many of us believe. Two, JB really wants a 1,000 wins. I really hate the second one.

    Of course, the third option is that despite his gruff exterior, JB really thinks he can get through and not just discard Frank which he knows would doom Frank's future plans.

    Some people might not realize how funny your post truly is.

    If Howard did something that bad then boot him. Honestly JB could have just played Gillon the whole game last night. Howard wasn't any better and made no difference. Stop yo-yoing Gillon and just let him play.

    Eh, I don't love it, but guys have been doing that pretty regularly for decades. I would guess that Thompson forces a shot 80% of the time he sees Lydon or Roberson or Coleman come to the scorer's table. This one's not a huge deal.

    I don't think we can take too much away from Frank's on-court performance. Among other things, Dino's observation that his confidence is shattered is spot-on.

    If anything, Boeheim's treatment of Howard after his clumsy foul of a jumpshooter last night spoke volumes: he called him over during the free throws; Frank looked like he was expecting a hook, but Boeheim calmly said a couple words and kept him in. We'll see what happens, but sometimes Boeheim's been low-key toward kids when he's given up on them. It happened with Joseph last season.

    Things seem off because a lot is being exaggerated here.

    This is exactly why I'd love to be able to discuss this freely. But I understand the reason why we aren't/can't.

    If this is a problem that would hurt the program, Howard and/or the University, why do the Admins allow these dead end threads to continue?

    Frank hacked the election?

    I actually thought he was decent in the first half where my rage subsided a small percentage temporarily, but the second half was the same old, ending with throwing up that crazy 3 that hit the backboard before he got pulled.

    Interesting calculus. But if Frank did sleep with the chancellors wife, knock up Shumps girlfriend, AND punch Otto in a bar on Marshall all in one Saturday afternoon, he would be gone from the team already. Remember the team is still serving sanctions, and I would expect zero tolerance for any more blemishes that give the NCAA reason to sniff around, and perhaps never restore the wins.

    Would you get banned for discussing?

    I hope it's not to serious.

    What could he have done so bad? JB has twice said in pressers now that he needs to get Frank better and more minutes.

    Possibly, but the thread would be locked and deleted pretty quickly I'm guessing.

    I think we can surmise, that what he did was "not good at all" ??

    Deleted due to being hearsay, or for being inappropriate?

    Well, unfortunately, it comes down to really only one thing. I think we all kinda know it deep down and haven't wanted to admit to ourselves that it could be this, but there's really no denying it now.




    It's cannibalism.

    Is this why we haven't seen Mookie Jones around?
