Default 1939-1940 Season Preview

1939-1940 Season Preview

Here is the preview for the upcoming season!

Athletic Director Goal

The goal this season is for us to again avoid last place in the conference. Our prestige went up to 1 this offseason which is nice to see. I was hoping we may be able to increase it a bit with the winning record but it is better to see a small rise than no rise at all.

Schedule

We were a little more ambitious this year with our scheduling. We still have a lot of low prestige and bad teams but we again scheduled Richmond and also added on teams in bigger conferences in Fordham and Evansville. I tried to target a few teams that were higher prestige but coming off terrible seasons so that the matchup will look better for us.

  03/02/40    at New Mexico State             0-0  142
Here is our starting lineup for the 1939-1940 season:

C: Ike Dendy (SR*)
PF: Rodney Hills (SR*)
SF: Timothy Swart (FR)
SG: Enoch Scull (FR)
PG: Odis Deck (JR)

6th - PG Lamar Smith (FR)
7th - SG Horace Williams (SO*)
8th - PF Charles Odaniel (SR)
9th - SG Tracey Marrs (JR)
10th - PG James McLeod (JR)

I feel so much better about the roster this year than I did last year. We have very little depth in the frontcourt but should be fine playing smaller players a little out of position due to the quality, or lack thereof, in our conference. We will have 3 freshmen playing major minutes and we will see how that ends up working out. If we are getting beat on defense often we may have to shift everyone back to their more natural position. The biggest problem with this is it would mean Charles Odaniel would need to start.

EDIT: Before the season started I decided to instead play the players at their natural position which pushed Odaniel to PF and every other player moved "down" one position.

Recruiting News

It is still preseason but unfortunately we have already had 3 players decline our scholarship offers. PG Don Dunagan who we identified as a stud prospect instead committed to Southern Utah and two C's turned us down in order to attend UT-Rio Grande Valley and Boise State.

November 10, 1939

North Dakota (0-0) vs. Grand Canyon (0-0)

Final Score: North Dakota - 38, Grand Canyon - 63. This was a dream start to the season as we had a solid performance and held North Dakota to only 38 points! Timothy Swart had a stellar debut with 10 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists, and 3 steals and was named player of the game. Enoch Scull was amazing as well in his first game with 17 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist, and 3 steals. Lamar Smith made his debut as well and had 0 points but 3 rebounds and 1 assist. Rodney Hills had 8 points and 12 rebounds. It is so nice to have a bench with reliable players as Odis Deck had 11 points and Horace Williams had 8 points for 19 bench points.

November 14, 1939

Grand Canyon (1-0) vs. Richmond (0-0)

Final Score: Grand Canyon - 45, Richmond - 80. The game was close early on but we were outscored 38-16 in the second half and only scored 2 points in the first 10 minutes of the half. It was a fun game to watch but got out of hand with their 17 offensive rebounds (to our 15 defensive rebounds). Rodney Hills had 12 points and Odis Deck had 9 off the bench. We were never going to win this one but was hoping for a result closer to what we had in the first half.

November 18, 1939

Abilene Christian (0-0) vs. Grand Canyon (1-1)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 52, Grand Canyon - 44. This one was a really bad loss to take as we just played terribly. Despite playing a big lineup we were outrebounded again. I am really considering going small since we are going to lose the rebounding battle anyways. Right now our obvious kryptonite is our big men as we have absolutely no talent there. Rodney Hills had 13 points and Enoch Scull was injured and will thankfully only miss 9 days.

Injury News: Enoch Scull will play in our next game. He is day to day and at 87%.

November 22, 1939

Grand Canyon (1-2) vs. Northern Kentucky (2-2)

Final Score: Grand Canyon - 46, Northern Kentucky - 64. This team is terrible so I've decided to just sim through games instead of watching them. Atrocious team that cannot rebound. They had 12 offensive rebounds to our 17 defensive rebounds. How can a team win when they play that badly. Simply put, they can't. Grand Canyon is proving why they have 1 prestige as no players are hustling and are embarrassing the program. They also shot 34% and allowed the opponent to shoot 54%. Let that sink in. With how we are playing right now I would be surprised if we win another game this season. We can barely score 40 points.

November 25, 1939

Grand Canyon (1-3) vs. Northern Arizona (1-1)

Final Score: Grand Canyon - 60, Northern Arizona - 68. Another bad loss here as we shot 34% to their 55%. Rodney Hills had 12 points and Timothy Swart had 16 but it didn't matter since we can't rebound. This season may be a very fast sim.

November 27, 1939

Grand Canyon (1-4) vs. Western Illinois (1-3)

Final Score: Grand Canyon - 57, Western Illinois - 65. Swart had 18. Hills had 13. We shot 41%. They shot 51%. Same story.

Overall Record: 1-5
Home Record: 1-1
Away Record: 0-4
Ranking: NR

Prestige only went up 1 but at least it isn't 0 anymore!

Had to take a little bit of a break with the tournament going on, traveling, and being sick. Looking forward to resuming!

December 7, 1939

Grand Canyon (1-5) vs. SIU-Edwardsville (0-7)

Final Score: Grand Canyon - 52, SIU-Edwardsville - 41. We were able to win this one but really didn't play well. After this game I am going to take Odaniel out of the starting lineup and we will play small ball. Ike Dendy had 14 points and 10 rebounds while Odis Deck had 13 points.

December 12, 1939

Grand Canyon (2-5) vs. Florida Atlantic (5-1)

Final Score: Grand Canyon - 66, Florida Atlantic - 65 IN OVERTIME. It was fitting that our free throw shooting let us down (12-20 during the game) but was the reason we won as Enoch Scull made two free throws with 21 seconds left to give us the lead. Scull ended the game with 22 points and 3 assists and Timothy Swart had 13 points and 4 assists. Florida Atlantic has a very good record so I was surprised to see us win but perhaps the smaller lineup has helped or maybe the team has just started to mesh together better.

December 16, 1939

Grand Canyon (3-5) vs. Loyola Marymount (6-3)

Final Score: Grand Canyon - 54, Loyola Marymount - 44. This one was low scoring and we were able to edge out the win despite going 4-19 from 3. Rodney Hills put the team on his back with a double-double, recording 13 points and 11 rebounds. Enoch Scull had another good game with 12 points and we were able to get 11 points from the bench.

December 20, 1939

UMass Lowell (2-8) vs. Grand Canyon (4-5)

Final Score: UMass Lowell - 82, Grand Canyon - 74. It is hard to be upset about this one because the team fought back from down 20 at the half to make it a one possession game with only 2 minutes left, but they still played pretty poorly when looking at the numbers. The difference maker was our 15 turnovers to their 6 and going 24-38 from the free throw line. Timothy Swart had 13 points and both Enoch Scull and Odis Deck had 12. We got 27 points off the bench as they came up huge and were instrumental in the attempted comeback.

December 23, 1939

Grand Canyon (4-6) vs. Fordham (2-7)

Final Score: Grand Canyon - 83, Fordham - 70. It seemed like we couldn't miss in this one, going 12-18 from 3. Enoch Scull had 24 points and had an amazing game. Rodney Hills and Timothy Swart both had 11 points and the bench again came up big with 25 points. It is so nice to be able to have a little more faith in the bench this year and know that they can come in and contribute.

December 27, 1939

Grand Canyon (5-6) vs. North Carolina Central (2-10)

Final Score: Grand Canyon - 69, North Carolina Central - 49. Enoch Scull had another great game racking up 20 points to lead the way. The rest of the team played a secondary role and the points were spread out pretty evenly including 24 points from the bench. This one was a really nice win and although it wasn't flashy it was a comfortable win.

Overall Record: 6-6

Recruiting News

Two players declined our scholarship offers this month. SG James Govan will be attending UTEP and C Haywood Reed will be attending UC Davis. It looks like this next recruiting class will be a bit poor but right now I am hoping to focus on bringing in a couple big men.

Incarnate Word (3-9) vs. Grand Canyon (6-6)

Final Score: Incarnate Word - 63, Grand Canyon - 61 IN OVERTIME. George Snelling of Incarnate Word had the best performance ever against us with 25 points and 15 rebounds. I kid you not, we lost this game because of a made 3 and then a technical foul from taunting which gave Incarnate Word 2 free throws to win the game. Rodney Hills had 12 points and 10 rebounds for a double-double and Timothy Swart had 14 points. Enoch Scull was disappointing with only 8 points on 3-11 shooting from the field. Also Odis Deck left this game with an injury and will miss 9 days with a sprained knee. The injury is day-to-day so we will chance him in our next game.

January 4, 1940

Grand Canyon (6-7) vs. Evansville (2-12)

Final Score: Grand Canyon - 61, Evansville - 64. We lost this game from a charge on our final possession and committed more turnovers in the final 5 minutes than the previous 35 minutes. Every single player, starter and bench player, was in foul trouble and it was a truly horrific game. If we could make free throws we'd probably only have 2 losses this year but our inability to do so has been the main cause of our struggles. Lamar Smith had 14 points off the bench and Timothy Swart had 11 points. Also the fact that our Center can't rebound is a big problem.

January 8, 1940

Omaha (0-15) vs. Grand Canyon (6-8)

Final Score: Omaha - 54, Grand Canyon - 67. Timothy Swart had 17 points and Rodney Hills had 18 points and 8 rebounds in the victory. The bench didn't play as big a role in this one with only 9 points but the starters were able to take care of business in our final game before conference play. This was definitely our easiest matchup of the year and is one I am happy to see that we won.

January 13, 1940

Chicago State (4-10) vs. Grand Canyon (7-8)

The bench came up huge in this one as the starters only had 14 points in the first half but the bench put up 21. Odis Deck picked up 2 fouls on the first defensive possession of the game and picked up his 3rd as soon as he came back in the game later in the first which opened up big minutes for the bench. Deck had a huge turnaround in the second half though, ending with a team high 15 points. The bench only had 3 points in the second half so his contribution was huge. Rodney Hills and Timothy Swart both had 10 points and 5 rebounds. We got to the line often in this one and going 25-33 on free throws helped immensely as we took advantage of the free points. It is really nice to start out conference play! Oh also a fun fact...New Mexico State is the only team that goes into conference play in the WAC with a winning record.

January 18, 1940

UMKC (5-11) vs. Grand Canyon (8-8)

Final Score: UMKC - 67, Grand Canyon - 64. We got into foul trouble in the first half with 14 fouls but the bench came up big again scoring 17 of our 33 points in the first half. We had 29 fouls called on us and two starters didn't even reach 14 minutes because of it. We lost though because Lamar Smith missed a free throw to tie the game with 5 seconds left as our free throw shooting again let us down. We haven't had foul trouble all season and now in 3 straight games we've had almost the entire team in huge foul trouble. Lamar Smith had 14 points off the bench, Timothy Swart had 11, and Rodney Hills had 10 (despite fouling out in 11 minutes).

January 20, 1940

Cal State Bakersfield (4-12) vs. Grand Canyon (8-9)

Final Score: Cal State Bakersfield - 79, Grand Canyon - 86. This one was an absolute thriller as Wilford Albin of Cal State Bakersfield had 35 points but was outdueled by Rodney Hills who had 30 points and 6 rebounds. We had 21 assists which is the most we've ever had as a team. Lamar Smith had 13 points, Timothy Swart had 12, and Odis Deck had 11. Deck also had 6 assists and Enoch Schull had 5 assists to make up for scoring only 3 points. It was another horrid night from the free throw, going 12-21.

January 25, 1940

Grand Canyon (9-9) vs. Seattle (7-11)

Final Score: Grand Canyon - 70, Seattle - 75. Absolutely pathetic game. Feel like I say this all the time but an absolute embarrassment to the program. 19 turnovers. Absolutely pathetic performance. I don't mind when we lose but when we show no heart and just give the game away it is a bad look for a program that is trying to build itself up and not be the laughingstock of the sport.

January 27, 1940

Grand Canyon (9-10) vs. UT Rio Grande Valley (5-14)

Final Score: Grand Canyon - 51, UT Rio Grande Valley - 48. This one was a real grind but we were able to overcome 16 turnovers. Rodney Hills had 12 points and 8 rebounds and Enoch Scull had 11 points. Timothy Swart had 10 points and 6 rebounds. This one was a really big win away from home

Recruiting News

We have our first commit for next season! C Adolph Gentry from Odessa, Texas will be playing for Grand Canyon next season! Gentry is a 1 star prospect and the #1,189 overall recruit. He is already more advanced than Ike Dendy and has a solid inside game as well as being a strong rebounder. He will most likely see a starting role next season with Dendy, Hills, Odaniel, and Puryear graduating.

February 1, 1940

Utah Valley (6-13) vs. Grand Canyon (10-10)

Final Score: Utah Valley - 61, Grand Canyon - 45. We were outplayed and only shot 30% from the field. Utah Valley committed more turnovers than they had shots made in the first half but still had an 11 point lead at the half. Rodney Hills had 17 points and only one other player topped 5 points. Rough outing and we are still yet to beat Utah Valley in what was our 4th try in program history.

February 3, 1940

New Mexico State (19-3) vs. Grand Canyon (10-11)

Final Score: New Mexico State - 77, Grand Canyon - 71. We really should have won this game but committed a ridiculous 22 turnovers (2nd most in school history) to their 15. We were down 2 points late in the game so the -7 turnover differential cost us dearly. On top of that we went 16-22 from the free throw line including missing 4 front end of 1 and 1s. This one was very winnable but the nail in the coffin was Ike Dendy going 0 for 7 but continuing to shoot late in the game despite really having no offensive skillset at all. Odis Deck had 16 points and Lamar Smith had 15. Rodney Hills had 14 and fouled out and Enoch Scull had 10. It was encouraging to know that we could at least hang with New mexico State and play them close.

February 10, 1940

Grand Canyon (10-12) vs. Chicago State (6-16)

Final Score: Grand Canyon - 56, Chicago State - 80. This is another candidate for most embarrassing loss in program history. We play a 20-3 team until the final minute but lose by 24 against a 6 win team. We went 4-23 from 3 which is inexplicable as well as 18-27 on free throws. After the performances this season I think we're probably about four decades away from any relevance. Our prestige may have risen but we're closer to moving down to D2 than anything else.

February 15, 1940

Grand Canyon (10-13) vs. Cal State Bakersfield (8-15)

Final Score: Grand Canyon - 52, Cal State Bakersfield - 59. We had this one won but Cal State Bakersfield had second chance points on 3 straight possessions to steal a win from us. They committed more turnovers than us but we still committed 15 and shot 33% to their 49%. Enoch Scull had 13 points and Rodney Hills had 11. After this loss I firmly believe that we are the worst team in the country and I'm not sure if we can even improve on this.

February 17, 1940

Grand Canyon (10-14) vs. UMKC (9-16)

Final Score: Grand Canyon - 48, UMKC - 63. We only committed 9 turnovers this game but of course UMKC committed even fewer with 6. We shot 36% and they shot 51% so we never had much of a chance. Ike Dendy led the team in points so you know it had to be a bad one. He had 11. I'm so amazed that a team that has improved so much talent wise can play so much worse.

February 22, 1940

UT-Rio Grande Valley (7-18) vs. Grand Canyon (10-15)

Final Score: UT-Rio Grande Valley - 57, Grand Canyon - 49. It took us 15 minutes to have more points (9) than fouls (8). The team has, quite simply, given up. If any of them want to transfer I'll grant their request and I'm hoping a majority of them will so I can get some good players into the program. Unfortunately I think they know they're D3 quality players. Rodney Hills had 19 points and 13 rebounds but don't be deceived, he took 17 shots. We shot 26% and they shot 51%. We haven't had this problem all year so the fact it is happening now against awful teams shows that the team has given up which is pretty cool that they code that into the game.

February 24, 1940

Seattle (11-15) vs. Grand Canyon (10-16)

Final Score: Seattle - 57, Grand Canyon - 66. Of course we win the game I sim past instead of watching. Enoch Scull had 13 points and Timothy Swart had 11. It looks like we played pretty poorly but Seattle simply played worse. We finally won the turnover battle but only by two as we committed only 8 turnovers.

February 29, 1940

Grand Canyon (11-16) vs. Utah Valley (9-18)

Final Score: Grand Canyon - 65, Utah Valley - 45. We only shot 39% from the field but Utah Vallley shot a putrid 21%. They had 7 more turnovers than shots made. Rodney Hills had 14 points and both Lamar Smith and Ike Dendy had 11 points. Hills also had 10 rebounds for the double-double. With only one game left in the season only TWO teams in the WAC have a winning record.

Recruiting News

No recruiting news but a little bit of team news. Charles Odaniel was injured in our last game and will miss 25 games with a dislocated knee. Also we have 3 unhappy players: Tracey Marrs, Omar Backman, and Marvin Davis. These are players who I hope will transfer and open up scholarships for players we can use!

Grand Canyon (12-16) vs. New Mexico State (26-3)

Final Score: Grand Canyon - 47, New Mexico State - 55. We played them close again and this time actually threw away the late lead by going on a scoreless drought to close out the final 5 minutes. Rodney Hills had a double-double with 16 points and 12 rebounds. The rest of the team couldn't muster up much offense and Odis Deck went 1-10 from the field.

Conference Tournament

Grand Canyon (12-17) vs. UMKC (12-17)

Final Score: Grand Canyon - 63, UMKC - Grand Canyon - 66 IN OVERTIME. If the AI had an inkling of a brain we would have won but unfortunately it does not. It inexplicably played the bench more than the starters despite no foul trouble and didn't call a timeout to stop a 12-0 UMKC run on 6 straight turnovers with the backups in. Absolutely terrible stuff here. Down by over 16 we were able to take it to OT but the AI lost us the game, plain and simple.

New Mexico State predictably won the tournament and absolutely destroyed every team along the way.

Default March Madness!

March Madness 1939-1940

It is time for the NCAA Tournament!



First up we have the West Region! There were zero upsets in the first round although 13 seed Montana did give 4 seed Miami a scare. The only upset in the second round was 6 seed Kansas over 3 seed Dayton. In the Elite 8 1 seed Arizona took down Miami and Kansas took down 2 seed Nevada. Arizona destroyed Kansas, doubling their score, to advance to the Final Four!



Next up is the Midwest Region! This region featured our first ever 15 seed upsetting a 2 seed! 15 seed Akron beat 2 seed Gonzaga by 4 to advance to the second round! 10 seed Detroit also took down 7 seed Duke to advance. Detroit took down Akron to advance to the Sweet 16 but then they lost to 6 seed Marquette. 4 seed Tennessee took down 1 seed Illinois to advance to the Elite 8 as well. Tennessee then beat Marquette to advance to the Final Four! WAC representative New Mexico State lost to 5 seed Utah State by 9 in the first round.



Now we have the South Region! 10 seed Texas Tech took down 7 seed Syracuse before losing to 2 seed Xavier. Also on that side of the bracket 14 seed East Tennessee State took down 3 seed UNLV by 2 points and 11 seed Louisville took down 6 seed Ohio State after winning the play-in game against Utah. Louisville advanced to the Sweet 16 where they lost to Xavier. The region ended up boring as Xavier beat 1 seed UNC to advance to the Final Four!



Last we have the East Region! 11 seed Maryland beat 6 seed Creighton in the first round and 12 seed Hofstra beat 5 seed UAB to cap the first round upsets. Maryland then took down 3 seed Wake Forest and 7 seed BYU took down 2 seed West Virginia. In the Sweet 16 BYU beat Maryland and 4 seed Villanova topped 1 seed Kentucky. BYU beat Nova by 17 to be the final team in the Final Four.



In the Final Four matchups Xavier beat Arizona and BYU beat Tennessee. Xavier then beat BYU in the national championship by the score of 99-87! BYU made a great run as a 7 seed but came up just short.

1939-1940 Senior Appreciation Day

Our second annual Senior Appreciation Day!

Our first Senior is Center Ike Dendy! Dendy is a 2 year starter from Lakeside, Arizona who was solid but unspectacular. He didn't bring much of an offensive threat and couldn't do too much on defense but was much better than what we had on the bench. He averaged 5.5 PPG and 5.0 RPG in 61 career games (all starts). He was twice named the player of the game and his career highs were 14 points and 10 rebounds.

Our final Senior is PF Cortez Puryear from Portland, Oregon. Puryear appeared in 59 career games off the bench and averaged 2.2 points and 1.4 rebounds in 6.7 minutes. His career highs were 9 points and 5 rebounds. Puryear always worried me when he would come in the game for any more than 5-7 minutes.

We went 12-18 this year and 5-9 in conference play which was a downgrade from last season. We had some really disappointing losses but I always assumed that last season we just got lucky which was evident by all of our close wins. I could definitely see the improvements this year but the lack of depth at C/PF definitely cost us and our defense at those positions was severely lacking.

Here is how the season went for us:

As you can see our RPI ended up 348 so we avoided being the worst team in basketball this season! We were best at limiting opponents assists at #2 in the nation but as you can see we were 2nd in the conference. This is most likely because of the inferior opponents we played as well as the low scoring games we were involved in. We were first in the conference in free throw percentage and 3 point percentage which I hope I can build on moving forward.

Big news! The school has decided to upgrade our practice facilities. Our current facilities have a 0 rating so it will definitely help current players and with recruiting, even if they are only upgraded to a 1. Also, our prestige rose to 2. It is a long road but at least we are improving!

1940 Offseason

There was no conference movement this year. I think in the next few years though New Mexico State may be leaving to join a bigger conference and we will receive a bottom tier team in return. Part of me hopes this doesn't happen because then we lose our only good team every year but part of me does because it means a much easier path to the NCAA tournament.

Here is our roster for the upcoming season:

Code:

 Luther Reid         51   PG   Fr   6-0  197  Yes   23       OK       Sacramento, CA
 Joseph Goodrich     40   PF   Fr   6-9  220   No   42       OK        San Diego, CA
 Sid Troutman        15   PF   Fr   6-9  241   No   77       OK          Arcadia, CA
You can see that our team is very young this year with 6 freshmen! Of our 4 seniors only one (Odis Deck) plays serious minutes for us. All 4 are on scholarship which means we are going to be able to bring in a lot of talent next year. On top of those 4 scholarships we also have 1 currently unused scholarship. With the 2 players who transferred out I decided to only use one of the remaining scholarships on a transfer since I only saw one player worthy of having for 4 years. Our freshman class feature one PG and five big men, so these freshmen could see a lot of playtime and be part of a rotation this season.

I never gave much of a preview on any of the players who came in besides Adolph Gentry, since the other 2 recruited players signed the last month of the season.

Corey Duncan has the potential to be a great rebounder and someone who won't turn the ball over in the post. He also could develop a solid inside game.

Luther Reid is a pass first point guard which is something we may badly need with how low our assist numbers have been the first two years. He won't shoot much but his passing should open up tons of opportunities for others and he is also good at limiting turnovers.

Michael Jackson is a transfer from Villanova who has is a defensive specialist. He has absolutely no offensive game but is a monster on the glass. He'll probably never be anything more than a man off the bench but he should be able to haul in plenty of rebounds in his limited minutes.

The first walkon is Joseph Goodrich who has a strong inside game but is limited defensively besides shot blocking. He should be able to limit turnovers while scoring on the inside.

The final walkon and new player is Sid Troutman. Troutman is a very poor defender who has no offensive game to speak of. I'm not sure if he'll spend all four years on the team but he projects to be our last man right now.

News: We have decided to cut Sid Troutman in order to free up another scholarship for next year. No idea if we will use this scholarship yet but it is better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

This means we have 5 scholarships to use this offseason.

Here is our call list going into the season:

I decided to try the "Go big or go home" strategy. I might as well try to make a run at some of these guys early instead of just using up time on mediocre players who only have interest in Grand Canyon. The biggest downside to our small budget is that we can't do as much scouting as bigger schools so it takes us longer to gain information on players.

1940-1941 Season Preview

This is the preview for the upcoming season. I already wrote this up once but it all deleted so it will be much shorter this time. Schedule is again an easy one with low prestige teams. New Mexico State starts out the season ranked #23 in the poll. Not the mid-major poll but the actual top 25 poll.

Athletic Director Goal

The goal is to avoid last place in the conference. Hopefully we can meet this goal for a 3rd straight season. Last season it was enough to improve our prestige from 1 to 2.

Starting Lineup

PG - Odis Deck (JR)
SG - Enoch Scull (SO)
SF - Timothy Swart (SO)
PF - Adolph Gentry (FR)
C - Joseph Goodrich (FR)

6th - SG/PG Lamar Smith (SO). Smith looks to improve on a great freshman season that saw him shoot 42% from 3.

7th - PG/SG Luther Reid (FR). I thought about redshirting Reid but I don't want to have him sit out a year because his passing will be too valuable. Him and Smith will see a lot of minutes.

8th - SF/SG Horace Williams (JR*). Williams improved last season coming off the bench instead of starting so we hope he can do the same this year.

9th - C Michael Jackson (FR*). I thought Jackson would have to sit out a year but apparently in FBCB any player who has redshirted at any point in their career can transfer and be immediately eligible.

This is really as deep as I hope we ever go and I don't have much faith in anybody else to come in and be able to do anything. Even Jackson I don't have much faith in but I need to at least include the big man who will come in off the bench.
