Wonder if it could be 2018-2019 schedule related? Based on that secret game everyone will be excited for that laprey and others mentioned and has not come out yet.

If it's schedule related, it might be a long wait to find out.

Those of us who go to the 210 Wednesday night have some fodder to talk about.....

I doubt it would be too long of a wait if it is indeed a scheduling thing. As soon as the ink is dry, someone will announce it. Even if our guys don't "break" a ton of stuff, if the program on the other side is a big enough deal to be excited about it, they'll have someone that break scheduling scoops.

Unless it’s UNC coming to Kingston, I can’t see someone being THAT excited over one game.

A schedule game(s) doesn’t seem “crazy” or making “fans pumped”. I think Bird is eluding to something bigger! I am hoping a big recruit/transfer or something with a long term impact (like a big deal with UA,maybe they sponsor a practice facility). URI Think Big!

Perhaps we need to look no further than the original tweet? A home and home with Gonzaga?

While a home and home with the Zag's would be awesome...I don't see that is being news that would justify creating that much excitement in a tweet. Really, any scheduling wouldn't imo. My guess would have to be something more along the lines of contract, or program/facility upgrades. But who really knows! I'm just as excited and curious as everyone else!

Like everyone else, I don't know what this is in reference to and I don't want to speculate/get my hopes up. However, by (over)analyzing his tweets, I don't think that Birdman is alluding to scheduling. I think that saying "Get your friends and show up" is a sign that it's not a big home game, which people would show up to regardless, and saying "Hurley is a legend" would be a bit over-dramatic for a big home game being scheduled.

Also:

*Upgraded brew selection at the Pub
*All snow canceled for this winter

Other than that...I can't really say much more at this time....

When Thompson redshirts does that free up a scholarship for this year? I could see a transfer coming in like KI did and being eligible next year. Maybe a big name recruit from one of the schools under investigation.

If he winds up redshirting, that will not open up a scholarship. Redshirt players still count towards the scholarship limit. Also, to echo what others have said, Birdman does have a track record of being correct on Rhody-related news - so his limited social media audience is not a reason to doubt him when he says something about URI.

I'm hoping for a mobile 7 footer who can shoot, rebound and defend .... a 5 star who's rejecting a school involved in the Adidas scandal and wants nothing more than to cement hurley's legacy at URI.

It left us with an open spot in 18-19, not this year. School is also halfway thru first semester so there won't be any transfer until the semester break, presumably.

Must have some incredible insight to have a good track record saying..."news coming...can't say what or when!"
