Mainejeff in the Maine Recruiting Transfers thread post posted...... good to see that Eke has transferred "up" to powerhouse "Rider".

Well he is right, he did transfer up aways, the Pomeroy College Rankings have Rider ranked at 217 and UMaine ranked at 334. He moved up 117 places in the rankings.

Vann moved up to 30th in his transfer to VCU., that's 304 spots up the rankings.

Harewood has gone to a junior college and Little has yet to decide where he is going.

When you lose 4 of your recruited transfers who 3 where starters, then there is a problem that needs to be corrected.

Well 3 of the Maine's Men's 2016 transfers from the Men's Program have ALL moved up significantly from where Maine and the America East Conference Rankings are in comparison.

Maine was ranked 334 out of 351 D-1 teams in the Pomeroy College Ratings for the past season.

The America L'east Conference was ranked 23 out of the 32 D-1 conferences in the Realtimerpi.com conference ratings.

Vann transferred to 30th ranked VCU in the 8th ranked Atlantic 10 Conference.
304 spots ahead of UMaine and 15 conferences above AE.

Little just committed to 155th ranked Colorado State in the 12th ranked Mountain West Conference. 179 places ahead of Maine and 11 conferences higher then AE.

Eke transferred to 217th ranked Rider College in the 19th ranked Metro Atlantic Conference. 117 places ahead of Maine and 4 conferences ahead of AE.

All 3 players moved up in college and conference ratings.

The 4th transfer Lavar Harewood chose to go to the JUCO route.

Evidently the 3 transfers who will each have to sit out a year because of transferring to another D-1 school all must have been considered good enough by the schools they are transferring to, to move up in team and conference play.

If they were that good then how come Maine didn't finish better than 8-22 this past season?

Must have been because Little and Vann were injured during the season, but both I don't think were out at the exact same time. Vann was hurt early in the season and Little was injured at the end of the season.

The Mid West Conference is a Div. III conference in Wisconsin, Illinois and Iowa.

Is Colorado State perhaps in the Mountain West Conference?

that post has a lot of good observations and would have been of value to the main transfer thread. you should post it over there.

for what it's worth, if you post things of value, i'll never complain, as evidenced by my earlier post to your blog.

Bob: My mistake. I should have known that...... just punched the wrong keys I guess. I will make that correction. That's why the put erasers on pencils and my erasers many times rips the paper.

Colorado State still in the 12th ranked conference in the country though and still the 155th ranked D-1 college team.

Ultimately I believe Harewood will transfer up as well. He's got enough potential to be a solid A-10 or MAAC level contributor.

CM: I agree with what you posted above. Harewood was the only scholarship recruit of this coaching staff that did not go to prep school after high school. He was the youngest of the recruited scholarship players.

Of all the recruited players, he was best suited physically, mentally and athletically for the type of up tempo, pressing system that UMaine still wants to play. He got less minutes in conference games then he did in the non-conference games.

This BLOG Thread started on Thursday, May 26, 2016 and the last post I made on it or somebody responded on it was in early June on June 8 (just 14 days) and it had 1445 hits or views, so 97Alum some people were reading it and posting so that does away with your myth that nobody reads it.

Seeing that some of my critics want me off the UMaine thread again, I will try only to start new UMaine threads on my blog only, but will still use my right of freedom of speech to reply and respond to UMaine thread posts.

NEW CIM'S BLOG QUESTION;

CAN THE UMAINE MEN's BASKETBALL TEAM TURN THE CORNER THIS COMING 3RD YEAR UNDER COACH WALSH LIKE THE WOMEN DID IN THEIR 3RD YEAR UNDER COACH BARON?

Both teams were in dire straits when each coach took over their squads.

After the first 2 seasons Baron's team were 13-46 for a 22.1 winning percentage and the men are close behind in their first two years under Walsh at 11-49 for a 18.3 winning percentage.

What do you think?

Will the men's team be able to match the women's third year of going .500 (women went 17-15 and winning a conference tournament game?)

Please give reasons for your answer! I'll give my answer and reasons at a later time after others have posted theirs.

Yes_____ No_____ Reasons for answer
