It will take much longer than that--try never at this rate, with the staff undermanned, out-of-sync and with no direction.
I hate to be this negative--but our HS recruiting is off the rails. And I've supported CM.
Kofi is the most critical recruit in our lens since Lew Alcindor. IMO, he's that critical.
To miss on him, trying like all hell 24/7 would be a blow, to miss on him, half-trying is I'm ashamed to say, a disgrace.
I'm not sick over this, but I'm close.


Could it be that all these prospective recruits are from our area and we can see them and have access to them whenever we want so there is no need to follow them all over the country. They're all right in our backyard. Just trying to be positive.


I'm off the ledge. Maybe. Seton Hall was there, UCONN, 'Cuse, and I'm sure all the major East Coast powers.
It's not as if we're operating with any major strength like record NCAA appearances or major leverage like a consistent winning tradition and/or recent BEC championships.
We're trying--or at least that's been the spin--trying to get back to that level of competition.
Those 'local' NY Metro kids, Kofi, Jalen, Aidan, Kahlil, would power that revival.
'SOmebdy' on 'staff'' should have been there.
But I over reacted and am off the 'ledge'.
Thanks Gene.

Not inclined to ever share a lifeboat with you. :)

Agree. But, Paultz, there's always room for you to share on my ledge. I've moved onto the ledge permanently in the last month or so, with no sign of leaving, and things have sadly gotten relatively comfortable being out here. :)

If they boffered Kofi then I think we should boffer him also but with a better looking bofferer.

We need a staff that recruits. All coaches recruit on staffs. They don't have defined roles

Funny. Just saw this! Thanks Paultz and Red.

I agree but, thanks to the Slice debacle, since Mitch seems part-time, we are ‘missing’ a senior/experienced ‘coach’.

Mitch may have a BFF agreement with Mullin that he doesn't have to travel around to recruit and is the designated "photo-op" coach. I have to admit that I think Mullin does some recruiting but is also more of a photo op guy and they both may believe that the recruiting grind is beneath them.

ATTENTION:

Major updates were made to the servers / software hosting redmen.com. There was also one significant change to the website this week to address keeping up with current standards and practices.

It has now become standard practice for all websites to be served as https (as opposed to the original http).


A couple of years ago I enabled https on the site as optional but as of today, the site is forcing https. Any link coming into the site should be automatically converted on the fly and you should not have to do anything on your end.

However if you do notice recent problems, please contact me directly via email: webmaster@redmen.com or via private message on the site.


Also if you have forgotten your username and/or password here are two links to address that (the links only work if you are not currently logged in):
