2020 - Big - Walker Kessler (Offer)


#41

FWIW Andy McDonald on rivals whose the southeast b-ball recruiting guy has said on the uga board that he thinks this one will be tough for uga. In his opinion uga trails um, uva, and Vanderbilt.

I really like our chances here. Particularly if teske keeps this up, than walker has to see what Michigan could do for him. He would be a perfect fit.


#43

Regarding Kessler? That’s good news but there’s a long time until he likely commits. I imagine blue bloods will get involved soon.


#44

If it comes down to those three schools, I like our chances.


#45

After Vandy’s last cla$$ you can never be too confident…


#46

Yes and they are much closer to home for him.


#47

We did beat them for Iggy though. And it seems we got the best one :slight_smile:


#48

Kessler doesn’t really fit the profile of a recruit who would ask for, or be offered, money.


#49

Garland and shittu are sick. I feel bad garland went down, they were my sleeper team.


#50

I’m a little conflicted about Vandy. That’s where I went to law school, so I root for them, but I don’t believe for a second they are getting those guys legitimately. And that’s a shame, because for a long time they were the Northwestern of the SEC - an elite academic school competing with cheaters (the SEC, not the Big Ten). I think the tide turned with James Franklin. And I was in Nashville a month ago - there is a TON of construction going on all over campus. Gotta pay for those new buildings somehow.


#51

I find it amazing that people are able to complete law school while living in Nashville…then I talk to someone who lives there and they say, like Vegas, the locals kind of stay away from Broadway. Every time Nashville is a first round site I hope Michigan lands there!


#52

Well, I graduated in 1998, it wasn’t the same back then. Still a fun place, but it’s remarkably different today. (This was the first time I’d been back). A group of us did, in fact, hit up some places on Broadway last month when I was there. What a crazy scene that is now.

When I was in law school, I never really gave any serious consideration to living there after I was done. Now? I’d think hard about it.


#53

Really? When did Broadway become the tourist spot it is now? I just assumed it had always been like that. If you like live music the only other place really comparable for night life is Austin, TX.


#54

It’s always been a great place for live music, it’s just much bigger and more happening than it was 20 years ago.

Not unlike the Vegas strip, for example - always a fun and happening place, but far different and more expansive than it was 20 years ago.


#55

Absolutely. Simi played with Ignas for CIA Bounce in AAU. Watched them play. Simi is amazing. Michigan was in the running for him but I think some shady stuff went down and that is why we didn’t get him in the end. Rumors I’ve heard at least.
