There has to be concerns at this kind of news/rumor. Just trying to keep from hyperventilating.
We knew it wasn’t going to be easy. It is never easy.
My theory is that someone at Pitt sold his soul to the devil for the ’76 National Championship. Remember, in ’77, we were a Matt Cavanaugh injury away froma possible repeat .. and from 79 thru 81, we were 1 loss away from the same.
We did have good fortune in BB this past decade … but apparently it was only a tease ….. damn you Satan!! (oh, that’s right, you already are)
I don’t think this is a rumor…I hate to say this,I believe it is fact. Adams comes from about as bad a background as one could possibly imagine and it is very much to his credit that he has reached this far. Adams has always been an academic stretch. Let’s hope that a way can be found to tutor him to a point that enables him to meet minimum NCAA standards.
I still say dump Epps & Wright and bring in two more players regardless of Adams. Whatever happened to the 20 & 20 Juco kid from CA. And the big 2 guard from NC. Also there is Robinson’s teamate from DeMatha, the big bulky center.
If you listened to any of his interviews or no about his background this kid is no problem child. He appears to be an hardworking outstanding young man that was denied by no fault of his own opportunities that our pampered prima donna H.S. atheltese take for granted and take advantage of the system.
From a basketball stand point their is no one in high school committed or uncommitted or presently playing in college that can is in this kids league. I have not seen a center with his skill since Duncan, David Robinson, or dare I say Bill Walton.
My brother played on the Fox Chapel high school team in the late sixities that had 2 6’11” twins, the Nelson brothers who went to Duesquene when it was a cradle of bigtime basketball, the ACC was not a power at that time. One of the Nelsons was Jabar’s backup at Milwakee when they won the NBA title. They both played in the NBA.
He went to see Adams play at Ambridge and said there was no comparison Adams was on another level. The comparison he used was Nelson’s nemisis in college Bob Lanier but that Adams was quicker than Lanier.
