Agree with this quote:
"There is a fine line between knowing the game and the game passing you by.. A very fine line."
And, basketball_guy ... I just did some research. Your boy, Bob Simon, got fired from his last job.
What has he done at Maine that instills confidence that he's worth retaining?
Please tell us of his accomplishments here.
There's usually a reason why a veteran assistant coach can't find anything better than a low-paying assistant's position at a program like Maine's.
Usually, when a new coach takes over he/she brings in a new staff.
Should be interesting to see what happens here.
And, of course, no one here cares about Alabama basketball. Nor does your presence there, or a few months at Maine 30 years ago, or more, make you any sort of expert on Maine basketball.
In reading over some of your commentary in this forum, it would appear the exact opposite is the case.

It looks like Trae Bryant is transferring...
Terion Moss will be needed immediately.

Moss is ready. We need a big and some wings that can knock down open shots and defend. Barron will find them. Wouldn't be surprised if we get a couple Euro's.

hoopsisme: Agree, but who recruited these players that are looking to transfer including the 11 the past two springs?

But when we gt our change back from a purchase don't we want it to be the correct change?

Just "sayin".

I try not to get involved in political discussions. What makes you think Simon does not deserve consideration to remain as an Assistant coach? I was not a party to why he was not renewed at Alabama, but I don't think you can make a judgement on any Coach after just one year at Maine. His experience speaks for itself. Best to let Richard Barron make these decisions.

Maine67 is that same guy Maine19fan who got booted off this board and basketball forum. No where on this post did I even mention anything about my time at Maine or Alabama, yet somehow he seems to know something that happened some time ago.

The same guy who gave Bob a hard time and blasted me all over basketball forum and got booted off there as well. As far as I can tell he has only been here since March 6th.

I have no interest in following posts from that guy, or listening to some so called media guy who supposedly has inside information when he really doesn't.

I don't pretend to know anything more about what goes on with Maine athletics than I do with Alabama athletics but I still have contacts at both schools being a former athlete.

I have no desire to get blasted anymore than I did before from this guy. At least at basketball forum I could block him.

Maine has a commitment from 6'8 F Jonathan Komagum from London by way of Florida.

Do you mean he is transferring from the Florida men's team?
