The Beat Goes On

BEVERLY HILLS (MI) -- The annual college coaching carousel seems to have finally slowed to a stop for 2013. However, the mass exodus of college hoops transfers rolls on unabated.

The latest transfer list compiled by Jeff Goodman of CBS Sports includes almost 425 Division 1 players who are changing schools.


Linky craziness:


What can be done to stop the insanity?

How about guaranteed, multi-year scholarships? Wouldn’t that help to stem the transfer tide? Well, you might not know it but guaranteed, multi-year schollies are available -- it’s just that very few colleges are offering them:


Elsewhere there is this:

-- What a guy! DMO went home to Kalamazoo to take his sister to her senior prom:


-- The New England Recruiting Report is the latest to proclaim Dayshon “Scoochie” Smith (who is already attending summer school at UD) a “steal”:


-- New video of Class of 2015 UD recruiting target Kyle Ahrens of Versailles (OH) HS:


-- Hard to believe that this kid is in the 7th grade -- his name is Marvin Bagley and he can hoop:


-- Superb profile of Flyer great Don May, courtesy of Hardwood History:


-- TSN Mike says that Davidson’s move to the Atlantic 10 is a good thing:


-- Villa 7 is a program that helps Assistants get their first gig as a Head Coach and Athletic Directors to identify potential candidates. Shaka Smart and Anthony Grant are both graduates:


Villa 7 is the brainchild of Minnesota Associate AD Mike Ellis and Archie Miller was also among the past participants:


-- So, according to this study Ohioans swear more than any other Americans:


In that light, here are nine things you Buckeyes did not know about swearing:


-- Where is Sports Illustrated headed? Good question.


-- To absolutely no one’s surprise, Red Panda was voted the NBA’s best halftime attraction (with video goodness of all top 10 acts):


-- If you are a baseball fan, prepare to get totally lost in Diamond Mines, an archive of scouting reports of future, current and past MLB players:


-- Joe DiMaggio might have been more famous, but little brother Dominic was a helluva baseball player and a great guy in his own right:


-- With the NHL Playoffs in full swing, it is time to savor and enjoy the play-by-play announcing mastery of Doc Emerick. He is simply the best:


-- A lengthy piece on the backstory of one of my all-time “wait I’m gonna stop flipping channels and watch this” movies -- Goodfellas… getting made the Scorcese way:


That’s it “From the Swamp.”

Bagley link?

Swampy, I might be missing something (God knows that me and computers don't get along very well) BUT, could you repost the link on the Bagley kid (the 7th grader you mentioned) I cannot seem to get what you posted to work. Is it me? Thanks....

That's because I double-posted the Ahrens link--my bad. It's all good now, thanks for catching it.

Great stuff, Swampy! Wow - Scoochie takes spin moves and crossover dribbles to the next level. I understand that was a "best of video," but he demonstrated some incredible moves. I like the way he switches hands around the bucket. That is a rare talent. I am not sure where he got the nickname "Scoochie," but it could be the way he "scooches" the ball on the floor in order to evade a defender's hands. I can't wait to see him in a Flyer uniform. As much as I like Khari Price, Scoochie is going to be hard to keep off the floor. In regard to Kyle Ahrens, he reminds me of a bigger, stronger, and more athletic version of John Diebler, the former Buckeye. He likely doesn't have the shooting range or accuracy that Diebler had, but I surely like his combination of skills that appears to exceed Diebler's. He would look mighty nice at that 3 spot with Scoochie kicking it out to him after dribble penetration into the lane!!!!
