Muss recruiting philosophy...

Not a fan of the transfer recruiting.  He could easily have a bad spring recruiting.  Also, he needs guys who can play immediately next year, as that roster isn’t that intimidating.

Next years roster will likely include Brown and maybe Drew as well. Even if it doesn't, Muss will reload. And we still don't know how good Hymes and the other freshmen will be.

If Muss replaces graduating transfers with more tranfers, it will be business as usual.

Unless he "reloads" with grad transfers and JC players, you're looking at a roster with something like 3 seniors, 0 juniors, 3 sophs and as of now, 0 freshmen next year.  Transfers at this point won't be available to play next year.

This years freshmen will have little opportunity to develop because your seniors and 1 or 2 of your juniors will eat all of the PT.  Look at the numbers in your 1st 2 games, which usually provide the most opportunity to get younger players a chance to see the floor.  Instead Muss has played his seniors  something like 315 of the 400 available minutes with Drew on the bench and his juniors another 60 or so minutes, Hymes got 0 minutes

What are the odds of a Hymes or Brown sticking around to have Muss  bring in upperclassmen to soak up more PT while facing the prospect of being on a non-competitive squad?

Remember, Muss did this to you.

Upperclassmen have gotten the majority of the minutes thus far because:

1.) The best players are upperclassmen

2.) The majority of the roster is composed of upperclassmen 

I don’t think Muss won’t play underclassmen. He played Oliver, Drew, and even Hall significant minutes as Freshmen and Sophomores.

Could some of the Freshmen transfer? Of course, a lot of kids transfer every year. 

For next year, there will be at least two Juniors on the squad in Eric Parrish and Jalen Harris. Lee, Hymes, and Drew might all end up redshirting  

That would give-using only current scholarship players-2 Freshmen, 1 Sophomore, 2 Juniors, and 3 seniors.   

Not that dire but definite holes

 

And LOL at “a non-competitive squad”!

Transfer recruiting has led to a tourney berth, a sweet 16 and now a top 10 ranking. I love transfer recruiting (so did Tark)

I’m not a fan of UNLVs recruiting and losing to a bad wcc team, it’s so so marvelous.

UNLV will only have one transfer on the roster year, and he’s a walk-on.  That’s how you do it.

Also, don't be surprised if Jalen Townsell is on scholarship by next season. I keep hearing that he has impressed the staff. It doesn't hurt that 6-7 wings are kind of Muss's thing.

He was very impressive in the intra-squad scrimmage in the old gym. I believe he was the 2nd leading scorer on his team that game, hitting a couple 3’s and getting a runout dunk off a steal. Seems like a sleeper for next season.

It works for North Carolina, Duke, and Kentucky.  It works for Syracuse.  It works for Oregon.  It works for Notre Dame.  It works for Florida State.  It works for St. Mary’s.  It works for UCLA.

Definitely. It would be great to have a sleeper like that fall into our lap.

Pssst. Those teams get the pick of the litter. Vegas doesn’t. It works for St. Mary’s much like it worked for Stew Morrill at USU... very good teams that never beat anyone worth a chit or games in the NCAA.

Good for them. Wasn't working very well at Nevada, thought they'd try something different.  Seems to working pretty well so far. How's things going down south?

To be fair, Saint Mary's made the Sweet 16 a few years back, and has made the 2nd round a couple times, something that USU failed to do during the Stew era.

You’re a moron.  That’s why Dave Rice was top ten in the country in landing McD’s during his time at UNLV.  He landed one in every class.
