    Great get for the Rams. Hopefully his inner demons are done.

    I've heard differing news on when he's eligible. Some say December, some say "Spring semester" (which I would assume is January). Anyone know for sure? We may not even see him at the Keg next year.

    Zisk just pointed out on twitter it'll be mid-December that he's eligible. Which sucks because it means he may not be eligible in time for the game at the Keg.

    Wish him good luck but how often do these situations actually work out.

    Obviously he is worth the risk for the sheep but I wouldn't bet the mortgage on him playing a substantial role for them. If a kid this good has problems that result in him not making it at a school it is rarely the school that is the problem.

    Believe they have most of their players returning next year. They could be damn good come March '15 if this works out.

    Only one of their top 8 is a senior. I think they have a few other transfers lined up as well for next year.

    So Larry Mustachey is following the Eugene template? Interesting.

    Meh don't care SDSU and probably UNLV/UNM will still be better than them and we'll never have to see him play us.

    CSU's primary rotation next year with their current/most recent yearly scoring averages:

    Avila: 19ppg
    Bejarano: 17ppg
    Kidd: 15ppg
    Octeus: 11ppg
    Gillon: 11ppg
    Behanan: 10ppg
    De Ciman: 9ppg
    Daniels: 8ppg

    That's easily a top-25 team. How is a school like CSU able to amass such talent? 6 of these 8 players are transfers (4 are not playing this year). Larry Eustachy gets it. While other coaches trek from high school to high school hoping to find quality players, then hoping to land these players, then hoping said players actually turn out to be good, then hoping they can actually be counted on as freshman rather then needing several years to develop, he's very easily and quickly assembled an elite team.

    2 questions:
    1.) How do you score PPG's when you are not playing?
    2.) is 12-8 elite?

    Ignoring JRK's trolling, I really do think CSU is going to be a top 25 team next year. Avila was a damn good get and a frontcourt with both he and Behanon is beastly. Not a huge Bejarano fan (even though his numbers make me look stupid for saying that), but that's going to be a damn good team.

    I really hope Behanon is eligible for the CU game next year.

    I am with you ton not liking Bejarano's game but there are just too many horrific shooting games mixed in with average ones and they always seem to come when the team needs him to be efficient.

    CSU is doing what it has to do to get talent into there. It may be the right model for them. It is not the right model for CU.

    Going back to J-R-K's original post in the other thread:

    I agree that CU should strategically target transfers, JUCOs and grad transfers. This year would be a really good year for a grad transfer if Tad can find one.

    If I heard correctly (I was mostly paying attention to the road), they said he was eligible in the spring semester on ESPN radio (105.5). So I don't think he'll be able to play yet against CU.

    And now it looks like Behanon is going to the NBA Draft instead of Ft. Collins.

    JRK fails again. That "elite" team he just claimed might have zero guys above 6'6

    Does this mean he won't be winning the Wooden Award for CSU?

    So Behanon was on scholarship with CSU but lived in Louisville, KY and took CSU online classes. Weird NCAA
