Dead period ends at noon on 4/11, and a brief recruiting period follows before it goes into a quiet period at the end of April that extends through July 5. AAU season has already started. Can you guys give us a heads up on which Texas coaches are going where to look at whom?

I am startled by their quick response. And people were saying basketball played second fiddle to football.
This question is best suited for Gerry. I'll tell him to come answer.

Thanks. That will be much appreciated.
Inquiring minds want to know!
That and many other things.
Did not realize that was so hard a question? While we are on Basketball questions what is Kabongo's status? How long does he have to declare for the draft?
Technically, he must announce by the NCAA deadline, which is in a week or so -- not sure of the date.
As a practical matter, he has until the NBA deadline, which has been a week before the draft, because if he goes, he goes.
“Kansas may wind up number one in these polls, but that would be so unfair to Texas...” -- Len Elmore, 2/13/11
Technically, he has until 11:59 pm ET on April 28 to declare under NBA rules.
He has to withdraw his name by April 16th to retain eligibility under NCAA rules.
+1 Classic! It may be another day! They are starting to stretch Gerry thin....HE JUST KNOWS SO MUCH! No sarcasm at all. He has the scoop on everything. They just need to clone him to keep us bball people happy. Its not like its golf or swimming. Damn!
Bierce thank you god. Sometimes I think they forget that despite a terrible season there are some basketball fans on here that would like to hear about recruiting. Or Myck or any transfers or possible late commitments for next year. I don't think we are asking for too much. Any info about Lewis might be nice as well. Hell I will take Gerry writing a column about a former player like Travis Mays. ANYTHING!
Texassborn and sundance I came to the conclusion a few months ago that this site is never going to offer information about Texas basketball. I enjoy the blogging with Dave and his game stories but no on the staff other than Dave cares(about basketball). In addition they think we are crazy for asking for information. IMHO it starts at the top and will not change but will continue to be promised with excuses made. The best part of the basketball information here is NY and GQ 's recruiting information.

That's a good one, bierce. While we're waiting ... here is something for you to ponder ...
You know, coming back to check this thread ... I just noticed that the "experienced, intelligent, and CLEAN" woman has what looks like a dead fox over her shoulder ... how clean could that be?

... or if you get tired of waiting ... so tired ... you can always take a nap ...
Thanks for the info. It seemed that all the discussion just ended!
Based on this thread i would say there is a good deal of interest in Texas basketball.
There is quite a bit of interest, at least in some quarters. But ... you know how hard it is to reach technical support sometimes.
Sorry for the lack of info, guys. It's been really quiet on UT's front for the last few weeks and Gerry, our resident insider, has been swamped with national stuff.
If there's any news out there worth reporting we'll definitely let y'all know.
Not to be an ass...but if there is any news worth reporting? Are you implying nothing of note has happened in the program since we lost to houston? C'mon Man!!!
-Sheldon transferred out. Whats the scoop on that? No insider info on that. Could have went in place of (many diaz looking for spread defenders) no shit! We are in the Big 12/10!
-Juice is looking to transfer. No info on that either?
-Kabongo and his chances on the draft
-Signing period passed...what do we have to look forward to with the new recruits?
-Barnes.....is he making any moves to do something different next season? Did he learn anything from this one?
-I would like to point out that there was a very nice write up on the SF Obre( might have spelled that wrong)
But please dont say there isnt something of note. I pay so i reserve the right to complain. Love this site just like i love my girlfriend but i always want more. I deserve more. lmao (things that help me sleep at night)
Your questions imply that Barnes is on top of things and out there hustling/shaking trees/making waves.
What if there is really no news? What if nothing new of note has actually happened since the Houston loss? What if Barnes has a boss content to rest of past laurels and doesn't care about results?
I asked the same questions the other day! With several sites posting that Lewis is looking around that would be a great place to start along with Myck's NBA status...................
There are a handful of posters who have no clue........................on any sport.
Either there legitimately is no reportable news of note, or the 247 staff is being lazy about it.
Why do you choose to believe the latter? Its not that hard to believe there really is nothing going on, aside from empty speculation.
,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,sundance...................my bad! How about a few "hands" full?
i dont believe the latter because there is no past proof that they have ever been on bball hard. Ive been a member for over two years and im sure bball info comes from subscribers for the most part. Either direct post or asking mods. Rarely is it a spontaneous occurrence. Ask around bro! I wouldnt lie to you.
When Gerry was attainable he use to hit us with the gems. No lie. I wont ever discredit what gerry has done for this site. But the ball is being dropped on this side of things and it isnt much to ask for i dont think. If it is then one of the mods should come out and say we cant handle doing both and therefore will only cover football. Then i cant say anything. I wish there were better sites but i dont like giving my money to new people.... oh and the rest of the sites suck. FML!!!
