Hassan and Langevine played center on this team. There were plenty of times Iverson got into early and deep foul trouble. If you think Akele was a great injection off the bench, fine.

Re: '16 LA PF Mike Layssard Jr. (URI Signed NLI)

So what? Laysard still could have been redshirted and if an emergency arose, then he could have played. Nobody looks good in garbage time. How many minutes did Laysard play with the first unit? NONE! So no fans have ever been right and a coach wrong about a player? Tim Welsh was going to redshirt Ry...

RR02, you are right. Redshirting is not a formal thing. In 1998-99, Harrick intended to redshirt Tip Vinson. Then the NCAA clearing house declared Zach Marbury ineligible, and Harrick was forced to use Vinson. In theory, Hurley could have redshirted both Laysard and Tertsea, and still used them if t...
