I've said this before, and, I will say it again. No definitive conclusions about WJ can be made until we see what transpires this spring. If all goes well then we need to see how WJ and his team perform next year. As the late Hampton poole said, " you ALWAYS find out about players and coaches in their second year. Patience, lads, patience!!!
Yeah but, twenty-four years ago, it was that quote that led me to think that Keith Gilbertson was a good football coach.

JC recruits don't impact college basketball like football. We start recruiting Jucos and you might as well fire Jones now.

There are still good JC players around. Just as with the other types of recruits, Cal does not get many of them.






I wish we had brought in a JC sharpshooter this year. Would have filled a huge need and helped balance out the classes.

So we build a team by landing the juco national player of the year? That's the winning recipe. I get you land one when a good one is available and interested, but schools struggle when juco is a priority.

I agree that we don't necessarily build a team around a JC transfer. Oregon did not build their team around Boucher, and Arizona did not build their team around Allen. But they were awfully nice pieces to have, critical to their teams' success. But when you have very little quality depth on the roster at several positions, as was the case this season, it would have been nice to try and fill a couple of those spots with an experienced JC player. Next year with Okoroh, Lee, Hamilton, and Welle graduating, and with the players we have committed for next season, we will have even less depth, especially up front. We look to be a little better on the perimeter, but much weaker inside, both in terms of experience and depth.

And I'd bet a dollar neither of them could get into Cal. Probably as is the case for a massive percentage of JC POY's. Not to mention the fact the average kid with grades poor enough to not qualify at any D1 school and who is also that good at hoops doesn't exactly profile as a Cal student athlete, even if they could get admitted.

The reality is unless we can land a Raab or J.Brown again we are going need to build the program from the bottom up. That probably means a few lean years on the court while the staff brings in multiple classes and they migrate through / mature. I see this as being less about our current HC and more about the dangers of having a program that relies on one and done type players but doesn't have the gravitas to reload with those players every year.

California JCs are designed for transferring to UC, so as long as the kid takes the right classes, goes to class and does the work they are likely to be a full qualifier. Cal's JC transfers (both athletes and non-athletes) graduate at a higher rate than high school entrants. Freshman year at Cal is no joke. I graduated with honors, but was on academic probation after my first quarter and I was not playing a D1 sport. There is a huge advantage to come in as an upper-class man.

The point is Cal should keep an eye out for the best (especially California) JC talent. Now, I will say, this applies to football more than basketball since there are so many schools at all levels a kid can play basketball, and with AAU and tournaments fewer kids fall through the cracks as in football, but again, we should keep an eye out.

Good question. That minimum JC GPA is far below our self imposed GPA requirement. Maybe someone with knowledge can share if the mandate applies to all athletes or freshman only.

yes, it does make sense because theoretically college is harder than high school academically. The goal of the 3.0 requirement is to ensure that student-athletes can make appropriate progress and graduate. Those with a 2.4 at JC have demonstrated that they can do college work (assuming they have taken the appropriate courses) at a level that leads to graduation. Granted, Berkeley City College is likely not to be as hard as UC, but probably harder than Podunk High School.

FWIW I spent 4 years as a student at a "good" public high school and 1 year at a "good" JC. Overall the JC was no more challenging than the high school and my JC grades were actually better. Also at the JC the variation in standards between different classes and different professors was enormous. Based on what I've heard about other JCs from many of their teachers I'd say a 2.4 GPA in easy classes at a mediocre JC would qualify the student for high school, not for Cal.

Berkeley CC is pretty solid, with (as one would imagine just from its location) inspiring professors and really bright and competitive students.

Good idea(s). On it.

One thing we hope to accomplish with these interviews/stories is to get former players to stay attached to the basketball program, thereby helping to create a better overall culture. Football is much better about that. The basketball players tend to move on and never really be heard from again. In my opinion this general absence tends to weaken whatever potential the basketball program may have.

I'm pretty sure we are talking athletic special admits here. With the point being a 2.4 at a JC is better than a higher GPA in HS. Is a 2.4 the equivalent of a 3.0 is which is the cutoff? I don't know. But neither gets you in without a really special talent.

Cute, but also a bit arseholic. So cool thrusting anti white these days as if so many of current day whites have something to do with the society's problems at hand. I see but civility and feelings of diversity and compassion, unless one wants to equate all whites with the ugliest bigoted whites which are reduced in numbers significantly from the day of yore. That in itself is a good thing, but in that it exists taints and poisons the water. Don't get it.
I think you have the burdens reversed.

It is 100% meaningless/false to assert disadvantage due to being white.

That is one of the worst things about the right wing white supremacists - that they believe they are the defenders of the "white race" against (whatever bad danger they happen to claim exists), and they assert this justifies whatever horrible means they choose to avoid Armageddon [means, by the way, that are unjustifiable even in the hands of people who ARE actually disadvantaged due to whatever immutable characteristic that qualifies them for being oppressed due to their identity].

The central point in this nexus is that the central sin of whatever ism it happens to be (i.e., racisim, sexism, religious intolerance, etc.) is that the victim has to be actually vulnerable due to membership in a group he or she cannot choose out of.

So, in that sense, the only times one is really disadvantaged in this society on account of being "white", are those extreme minority of cases where a "white" person is in a particular neighborhood (physical or otherwise) in which they are subject to opprobrium on that account, AND in a significant enough minority (and without access to the majority status they enjoy everywhere else in the country) that they are in actual danger from which they cannot escape at that moment; and there is just NO generally applicable societal circumstance in which that could be said to apply in any general way.
