Odds & Ends (9-13-10)


More Odds and ends from last week, and stick around to the end of the post where I unveil a new feature in Odds and Ends.

  • As I reported last week Bobcat head coach Brad Huse and Grizzly Wayne Tinkle accompanied by recruiting assistants are out on the recruiting trail meeting with recruits and their parents at their homes as well as checking out work outs and talking to coaches. As a contact period this is the time when the coaches have the most latitude in recruiting and communicating with prospects. I have reports of coaches making appearances in California, Arizona, Colorado and Wisconsin.
  • I had a person contact the site and tell me that Colorado point guard Jordon Gregory will be visiting the University of Montana campus this week end. This source is not one of my regulars, so I am trying to confirm.
  • I heard last week that Wayne Tinkle has offered point guard Mitchell Farr from Racine Case high school in Wisconsin. Along with Montana, High Point, Jacksonville, and Rhode Island have also offered Farr. I hear Montana either have or will shortly have a home visit with Farr and his family.
  • I have added 2 players to MSU football and two to UM Football recruiting lists. Additionally I have updated a few players who I have been told been offered as well as a few players who have committed else where.

And now we go to a new feature of Odds and Ends where we have Stat Boy to tell us what Mslacat got wrong last week.

  • I reported that Griz assistant Freddie Owens would be taking the University of Wisconsin open assistant job that opened up last month. As it turned out Wisconsin hired now former Akron assistant Lamont Paris. University of Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan ultimately went with a coach who had a little more experience, than the second year coach Owens. Still to even be considered has to be a pretty good feather in his cap, and ultimately the Griz basketball program.
  • Last week I reported about the new NCAA division 1 basketball preseason practice rules. As it turns out the rules as out lined in my post are actually the new rules for the Women’s programs ONLY. The men’s programs will follow the preseason rules limits of 8 hours maximum of players work outs out lined, BUT the men’s official practice will not follow the 30 practices in the 40 days prior to the first game as the women will. The men’s practices will be much the same as last year, with the first allowed on October 15, 2010. I do not know why the NCAA decided in its infinite wisdom to have different rules but it did and there you go.
