Well, Shocky

I, like you, was pleased to read Ryan Gorcey's very optimistic sentiment concerning the quality the Cal coaches recent visit with Troy and the Brown family. He is a key recruit this cycle and I am very hopeful that he concludes that Cal is the best choice for him. Notwithstanding the acknowledged great relationship and highly comfortable "in home" visit there remains tough competition for this outstanding prospect.

His commitment to Cal would go a long way to pushing this pending group from good to great. The next 60 days portends to be very interesting for Cal basketball fans.

Not really.
Michael Porter is ranked #2 and is Romar's godson.
If UW fires Romar, Porter would surely decommit.
UW is not going to fire Romar and lose the #2 player, along with whatever else they got going.
Sure, he may not be a great coach at getting W's, at least not nearly enough to match expectations, but he remains a very good recruiter.
Anyways, Trump has shown me, taught me, amazed me, at how if you just keep saying something over and over and over and over and over, that eventually people start to believe you - whether there is actual truth to it or not.
You can fool most of the people most of the time.
This thread practices that mantra. It's actually brilliant, because it works - MOST OF THE TIME.

Before you go all Shocky "fanguy" you should take the time to read the Ryan Gorcey Scout article and consider the source of the optimistic comments.

http://www.scout.com/college/california/story/1707078-troy-brown-breaks-down-cal-visit

Catfish, macaroni and home cooking greet Cuonzo Martin and Wyking Jones during in-home visit with five-star Troy Brown

Troy Brown has a special relationship with Jaylen Brown, and after more than two years building a relationship with Cal coaches Cuonzo Martin and Wyking Jones, he invited them into his home on Wednesday night for an in-home visit.


Five-star point guard Troy Brown's mother hails from Texas, so when she cooked dinner for California basketball coaches Cuonzo Martin and Wyking Jones ("He's been the main focus of my recruiting," Brown said of Jones) on Tuesday, she made sure to give them a down-home meal: Catfish, macaroni, corn, chicken wings, cake and ice cream.

"She knows how to cook," laughed the five-star out of Las Vegas (Nev.) Centennial.

When the meal was over, it was time to talk turkey, but with the relationship between Martin and Brown extending back more than two years, soon, a hush fell over the room.

"Honestly, it was funny, because coach Martin gave a big spiel and was talking to us about the stuff that was going on with their program, and their roster, and how they need me to come in and be a big factor, and at the end of it, there was nothing else left to say," Brown said. "I mean, he's been very real about everything he's told me. At the end of the conversation, we were all sitting there, quiet, because we already knew how we felt about the school. I have such a good relationship with them."

The evening in-home visit saw Martin and Jones join Brown, his mother and father, and his AAU coach in his Nevada home. After more than two years, they know each other well, and Brown certainly knows the Bears.

"I feel like they have a good program, thy develop players very well, and I see them having a big year, this year, coming up," Brown said. "He's very straight-forward, he tells me everything that will happen, if I do go to Cal. He was explaining all the stuff he could help me with, and all the stuff he could help me develop, and turn me into a better player."

In recent weeks, Kansas and Oregon have been by Brown's house this fall, with a couple more schools coming up in the next couple of weeks. What sets Martin apart is the sense of familiarity, and the ease with which he and Brown communicate.

"I was talking to him for so long, it's just sitting down and talking -- there's never an awkward conversation," Brown said. "I've had a good relationship with him for so long, that's how he differentiates [himself]."

Brown hopes to make his college decision by the Nov. 16 start of the early signing period, and has four main criteria, which he outlined, and then on which he spoke more in-depth:

"One, will be me having a great relationship with the coach," Brown said. "That's everything, especially playing point guard. I need to have a good relationship with the coach, and make sure that we're on the same page, on and off the court."

Martin, Brown said, is "very in-tune" with the players on campus, and that's what he wants, as a point guard. He learned how valuable that relationship is from the No. 60 overall pick in this year's NBA Draft, Tyrone Wallace, who was on hand when Brown unofficially visited the Bears earlier this year. Like the 6-foot-7 Brown, Wallace, too, is a long guard, at 6-foot-6.

"When I went on my unofficial, I talked to him, and we hung out, watched a workout, stuff like that," Brown said. "He talked about how coach Martin and coach Jones would try to set him up for him to be a good point guard, to put him in situations for him to look good as a point guard, especially with his teammates and picking up pieces, doing roles that need to be done, and not just going out and getting every superstar or things like that."

"Staff, I would say, is third," Brown said. "Just the people around the coach, making sure I have a good relationship with everybody -- the trainer, the nutritionist, stuff like that, just making sure I feel comfortable in that area."

During his unofficial visit, Brown met strength training guru Nicodemus Christopher, who also serves as a team nutritionist.

"He was a great guy," Brown said. "They were in the middle of doing a workout, and he was talking to me, letting me know different ways to help my body."

*****

"Then, academics," Brown said. "I understand that basketball is eventually going to stop for me, and I want to be able to pursue broadcast communications, and just try to get a good relationship with people, while I'm in college."

Martin, recently, on the Jim Rome Show, revealed that No. 3 overall NBA Draft pick Jaylen Brown left Berkeley with a 3.2 GPA. Academics are important to Troy Brown, just as they were to Jaylen. In fact, before Jaylen ever visited Berkeley, he and Troy became close, and have remained so.

"I know Jaylen on a very personal level," Troy Brown said. "He's like a big brother to me, someone who I know I can always go to and talk to. That's the expectation from him. He set that bar. He doesn't like to be average. I know if he's in the classroom, he's going to be good."

The pair of Browns met during USA Basketball and Elite 24 workouts before he signed with the Bears.

"We both think differently," Troy Brown sad. "Jaylen has a certain itch to him. He doesn't act like the regular, typical basketball player, I would say. I'm kind of the same way. Having the same personality traits, acting the same, it just ld us to get along. Especially with him being older than me, he looked after me a little bit."

While Jaylen Brown is a chess whiz, Troy Brown prefers more solitary pursuits, but, like the older Brown, still unique.

"Not exactly in his particular areas, but I have niches for myself," Troy Brown said. "If I'm able to make it to the NBA, I want to invest in video games. I love to draw. Drawing is one of my huge things that I love to do. I love to draw. It used to be very serious for me, but as time started moving faster, I didn't have a lot of time to just draw. Naturally, now, whenever I'm on an airplane, or I can't get to sleep, I always have a note pad with me, or something, and I'll draw anything that comes to mind. Sometimes, I'll just see logos and stuff, or I'll mimic it, or landscapes, or I'll see an action shot of LeBron [James] and I'll screen shot it and try to sketch it."

*****

Alabama will stop by on Sunday, and Georgetown will come by on Monday, for Brown, who has taken an official visit to Tuscaloosa, and to Ohio State. Next up on the official visit list is Oregon next weekend (the Ducks visited on Wednesday) and then the Jayhawks the weekend after that, followed by the Hoyas the very next weekend.

Having already visited unofficially, Brown said he doesn't need to take an official to Berkeley. Since he has a top eight, he wanted to use his official visits on the more far-flung options, while paying unofficials to the schools -- Cal, Arizona and UNLV -- closest to him, and the cheapest to visit.

"I wanted to make sure I visited all eight schools, before I made this decision," Brown said. "I've taken unofficials to Arizona, Cal and UNLV, so I had five official visits left, and that's how I made the visits.

"Hopefully, I get this done by November, and I can enjoy my senior season. It's been a little bit hectic."

a major factor in last season's team inability to achieve their full potential was the failure to capitalize on free throw opportunities particularly during crunch time, the bear shot only 65.6% which was dead last in the pac 12 (colorado shot 73.4% in leading the pac 12 from the charity stripe)

let's be real here, miss paddlebrooks a 63 year old recess monitor at montera middle school could shoot the ******* ball better than that:headbang



love my guys t-wall (64.9%) & jaylen (65.4%) but you need the guys handling the ball at the end of the game to be moneyball free throw shooters to win championships, that didn't happen last season

that's why the staff is excited about the 2017 possibility of the 3 headed point guard monster of troy brown jr, charlie moore & jemarl baker all being on the floor together during the last 5 minutes of each half during bonus time with all 3 1s handling the ball & knocking down 80%+ of their free throws, that's gonna win a lotta games

How long do you want to ignore this user?
after further reflection i'm no longer recommending that troy brown jr commit to the university of california, berkeley

with his numerous touring & recording commitments as rza of the wu tang clan, there's not enough hours in the day for troy/rza to also do the necessary classwork at the #1 ranked public (#3 overall) university in the world, further develop his skills/passion for painting & play basketball


troy/rza should therefore attend a **** for academics school like oregon with a 76.1% acceptance rate that will only ask him to play basketball on a basketball court with a basketball

i dunno maybe troy (3.7 gpa) & ira lee (3.8 gpa) could room together at oregon's honors college which is exclusively reserved for those incoming freshmen with at least a 2.85 gpa, this is a strict requirement that that doesn't have any flexibility, nobody with a ged has ever been accepted by oregon admissions into the honors college yet


and when troy & ira (who will miss almost half his career high school games because of injuries, he's one more major injury away from his basketball days being done forever) leave oregon then they can work/will be qualified together as nite shift supervisors at the medford truck stop...eventually they will meet a couple of lot lizards with cfm pumps that are gonna tell them they're dtf & then they will get horribly painful stds & die

their deathbed conversation will probably sound something like this:

troy: ira, i've been doing some thinking, do you think shocky was right and that we should've gone to berkeley back in the day?...maybe we should've been mentally limitless with academic ambition and should've read books and **** like that instead of just being naively stubborn dumb azz basketball players for altman...a mind is a terrible thing to waste and we really didn't use basketball, basketball used us...what do you think, ira, in retrospect should've we been more cognizant of the ephemeral nature of our basketball careers?

ira: wut?

Hey, that's pretty laughable, Vineyard.
Me? Be a Shocky fanguy? Ha ha ha...
That would be like if half the electorate were suddenly to forget all the major offenses, gaffes, lies, and character idiocy that Trump has committed over the last year, switch on a dime, and vote for them. Like, short memory, right? Oh, wait, I think that half is called The Deplorables... But I digress...

No, it is only proper to praise the behavior that one does desire, and not just focus on the bad behavior. While the stick can cause an immediate and quick response, for long term results people respond better to the carrot than the stick. It's how I treat children, my own and those I coach on the soccer team. I've been told that a ratio of 6 praises for every criticism is the proper mix. Unfortunately, I've only been able to manage 1-6 here.
Shocky may be quite childish at times, but no matter - this works equally with adults just the same as children.

Oh, gosh, there I go again, offering more insults.
Damn you, Vineyard, you've lowered my ratio to 1-8.

But thanks for posting the longer article! :p

So, he paid his way to hometown UNLV, and relatively nearby AZ and Cal.
Meanwhile, his far-flung freebie visits are:
Ohio State - 14 days ago
Alabama - 7 days ago
Georgetown
Kansas
Oregon

Smart guy! Let them pay for tourist stops!
I get Georgetown - who wouldn't want to go see D.C.!
Kansas, he has a sister playing there - so you gotta do that one for a variety of reasons.
Alabama and Ohio State - two football meccas. OSU was two weeks ago, when they hosted Bowling Green (77-10). Alabama was last weekend, when they hosted Western Kentucky (33-10). I bet Dad picked those visits! :p
Oregon? I just don't get. Maybe he wanted some Nike swag.
He should have asked St. Johns (NYC), BC (Boston), Villanova (Philly) or perhaps even Hawaii or Key West to recruit him. Though I hear Hawaii is wise to that concept.

Okay, I'm not being silly here at all when I say
[SIZE=6][COLOR="#0000FF"][FONT=Comic Sans MS]I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU!!!!!!!!!!![/FONT][/COLOR][/SIZE]

Sounds like an awesome strategy and is fairly head pounding to think of our failures from the past. Uhg.

It's absolutely amazing the amount of bogus bullsh^t you post and the moderators tolerate. Childish likes to hang with stupid I guess. NONE of the numbers you post are close to accurate.. Not even for Arizona State where you claim your spouse matriculated as a hostess I suppose. Get a f>ck1ng life you worthless liar.


Shocky said 95% acceptance rate for Oregon.
Actually, Google says Oregon is 75%.
And Arizona State is 80%.

Google has no news on where else Kat applied...
Perhaps if The Donald is able to obtain Obama's Harvard transcript he will also be able to dig this up. Should I tweet him?

while flying on an uber helicopter (where's the nobu malibu wygu beef rare grilled & thinly sliced waygu beef with ponzu sauce?) right now to the bay area, now is a good time to go thru this week's mail...there's a glossy brochure with a self addressed return envelope with the wording "you make it all possible" on the cover with the cal basketball logo & a dramatic foto of a young ivee throwing down a slum dunk in an imaginary world where the cal guards actually throw him ******* lob/entry passes

there's an intro letter from coach martin basically telling everybody not to be a dumb azz & to support the program & not stay further afar


last season's top 9 achievements according to coach are as follows:

1. 18-0 undefeated perfect home record at haas pavilion for the 1st time since the 1959-1960 ncca championship team
2. #4 seed in the ncca tournament
3. pac 12 freshman of the year & an all american freshman
4. 3 players on the all pac 12 team
5. perfect 1000 apr score for the 2014/2015 academic year
6. 2 players on the all pac 12 academic team
7. 2 student athletes accepted in the haas/shocky b-school
8. 2 players named all district
9. 2 players drafted in the 2016 nba draft

coach apparently forgot about the most important aspect of the magic of cal basketball, stormin" the floor (what security?...that **** is fun)

there's also a quote from my boy brandon chauca: "you have provided me with an education, something that can never be taken away and experiences that i will cherish for a lifetime...you have made my dreams of going to college come true and exposed me to some of the most intelligent minds (sure hope he's not talking about coach webster) that i have ever met...thank you"


lastly there's a return envelope with a hand written (very legible, he's gonna be a lousy doc someday) note from surfer dude cole welle:

Dear Shocky,

How are you?

I am fine.

If you don't put a ****load of money in this envelope Coach Martin is not gonna feed the walk ons before and after games this season, please help us.

Plus we need some coin for my promotional gameday bobbleheads with one of them curvy brunette yoga females with a flat stomach.

it's 5:30 pm at haas pavilion & unlike the crooked azz free throw shooting cal basketball team shocky is practicing his free throws at the north basket at haas pavilion while coach jones is playing horse at the south basket with one of the smooth shooting dads while other coaches walk in & out of newell court

at 5:40 pm the horse game at the other end of the court concludes with handshakes & fist bumps

at 5:45 pm juhwan harris dyson & jemarl baker enter haas pavilion in jeans & t-shirts & start shooting around at the south basket...this is my 1st time viewing them & both appear to actually be their reported 6'4" heights...at one point juhwan's ball rolls down to my end of my court & i'm tempted to ask him "where you live?" to see if he will point at the berkeley hills but don't do that, recruits & donors can never interact, the cal basketball program is a clean program that does things the right way so i keep my mouth shut...a couple of times i catch them watching me as i'm watching them

*****juhwan harris dyson is a freak athlete with a high motor...the spider fly moves effortlessly with tremendous length, he will be a lockdown pac 12 defender...he is only 16 years old & is coltish in appearance, he will become an absolute beast in coach christopher's world class s&c program...juhwan's perimeter shot is inconsistent at this time, he falls back (not vertical) a bit when shooting the 3 pointer, coach webster will definitely coach him up on his form

*****jemarl baker is draining 3 pointers a couple of feet behind the college 3 point line, he literally has nba range right ******* now...i got goosebumps watching him stroke one moneyball 3 pointer after another, his shooting form is steph like with elevation & balance along with a consistent release point...cal fans are gonna love watching jemarl let it fly, the ball soars thru the haas airspace with a perfect arc before softly dropping thru the rim...physically baker is not ready to defend elite pac 12 2s like tyler dorsey of oregon & allonzo trier of arizona as he would be abused at the point of attack with his skinny frame in the bears man on man d scheme, gaining strength along with good weight will be a priority in baker's development into an all pac 12 player/all american candidate

at 6:00 pm juhwan & jemarl along with their parents & families, the cal staff (including roberta martin) head out to catch golf carts aka the uber helicopter up to memorial stadium for the 7:30 pm kick off...coach martin comes over to ask what's up but i know he's only probably doing it because roberta told him to be nice to me for a change

yeah, the california golden bears were dead last in the pac 12 in free throws so the shockster stayed behind to shoot more free throws in an empty haas pavilion with the basketball echoing on the floor, not ever gonna be outworked that's for sure...haas pavilion is my palace, where is your palace?

couple of tidbits:

*****there is a program awareness/point of emphasis that the offense "needs to run thru ivan" this season, lob/entry passes to all the bigs including kam & the king should be more common this season than the unicorn sightings last season

*****jabari bird has had a "tremendous summer" & is ready to take the next step forward for an outstanding senior season & show nba scouts he got a motor that don't turn off

*****charlie moore is "tough", "moves like a waterbug", "an absolute game changer" & is "shifty with amazing changes in direction" with a high basketball iq...keep hearing comparisons to tyler ulis

*****marcus lee is "a tremendous addition" to the program with his kentucky work ethic, he's making young ivee a better player

an absolute evening for the ages at memorial stadium with perfect fall weather that concluded with thousands of fans including the shockster stormin' the field & a massive celebration with the players while the cal band played late into the nite

the magic of cal basketball & football cannot be experienced/comprehended while watching on tv, something is lost in translation

do you got your season tix(s) for cal basketball?

Given that Dyson is young for his class (especially compared to so many other kids that redshirt kindergarten to get an advantage) do you think it's possible he could redshirt his first year at Cal?

[SIZE=5][COLOR="#0000CD"]Saturday, September 17, 2016 goes down as one of my most awesome Cal sports days in the history of time[/COLOR]

First, I arrive on campus early and saw THE BeastMode in the Cal Store
Then I walk down to the RSF, got a day pass, and went up to the Blue & Gold basketball courts
I walk in, and to my surprise, they are having a basketball practice with the entire team
I get my first look at the new team, including the new players. Ivan Rabb looks bigger/stronger, Marcus Lee looks long and athletic, and Jabari Bird looks like a veteran and in command. Coach Martin is personally leading this practice, instructing, correcting, encouraging.
After they finish practicing some sets, Coach Martin gathers his team and closes with a post-practice talk. How can you not love this guy as a coach?
Since the players are just stretching, I go to the other courts and play two games of pickup ball
Before I leave, I return to the other court where a few of the players stayed behind to shoot and play one on one. I got a good look at Charlie Moore. Cal fans will be very happy with Mr. Moore. He's got the handle, and the shot to WOW the fans, and has an array of shots to get space for his pure shot, and get past his defender for a layup, tear drop or step back. This is even against athletic, longer players.
Then off to meet my buddy and a top dog (they had blue and gold napkins)
We watch the band and cheerleaders in sproul plaza, follow them up to the stadium afterwards (a must do if you've never experienced that)
And then the football game vs Texas. Next to us were a group of Texas fans. We were talking, joking and laughing with each other through the entire game. Everyone stormed the field, the band played, and the rest....was history

jemarl: sure glad we got to finally see shocky, who even wears dress shoes while shooting free throws anyways?

juhwan: i'm just glad he didn't make fun of our hair, he's always saying ira got better hair than us

jemarl: no worries, we all got better hair than coach martin that's for sure
