    I don't think he was threatening to send us to someplace that is good?

    I really hope you are right. We need him so bad.

    I like this kids game and physically feel like he could reclassify and solve many issues.

    JB - he'd just downed 7 cups of coffee and a package of N0-Doz

    Could be mistaken but I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that it was Hop. Francis will probably know for sure though.

    I read it was Hopkins also. Ollie was there too. I don't know if UConn has room at the inn next season with Adams, Gilbert, Ashton-Langford, and Vital locked in for playing time at the guard spots. Hopefully we can get Ayala on board soon.

    Gonna need to save some of those dimes for next season if he ends up at SU.

    Are we the favorites right now guys? I know UConn is up there as well, but if he reclassifies I imagine we'd be a more attractive option. Between Adams, MAL, Gilbert and Vital - Ayala would probably be the 5th guard. Here he would probably start in the backcourt with Battle

    Is it fair to say that the only reason he would reclassify is to accept the opportunity at SU, or is that something he hopes to do whether its SU or somewhere else?

    Ayala's team is playing Duarte's team today but I believe RCA doesn't play it's basketball games in Troy. Instead I think they play at their Northfield, Mass campus.

    Will there be an SU coach in attendance?

    I'm going to guess that we are in desperation mode right now. Duarte is reportedly heading back up to Syracuse on Sunday so I am guessing he is real serious. And we are one of Ayala's favorites so if we can pick up two this weekend would make things a little sunnier in CNY.

    I expect Duarte to commit this weekend and announce next week. No inside info at all just the timing of it makes it seem very likely IMO.

    As far as Ayala he must like SU since there was no talk of him reclassifying until we got involved and offered.

    Hope you're right -- we could use some good news.

    Interesting what the coach has to say. But, I take it with a grain of salt, as coaches often have their own agendas.
