They must be bored... No way depaul gets these guys...Last I checked-wainwright is still the coach! Maybe today is april fools??? ha!

Who are these people and why is it important that they were at De Paul's festivities, which is Midnight Madness, I assume?

LOOKS LIKE THE LIGHT HAS COME ON, THE BIG EAST IS THE BIG EAST, AND GUESS WHAT, DEPAUL UNIVERSITY IS IN THE BIG EAST, IF YOU CAN SHINE IN THE BIG EAST, YOU WILL PLAY PROFESSIONAL BASKETBALL, SO WHY GO TO LOUISVILLE, MARQUETTE, GEORGETOWN, U-CONN, ETC.., WHEN YOU CAN GO TO SCHOOL RIGHT HERE AT HOME, AND BECOME THE HOMETOWN HERO, AND PLAY IN THE BEST CONFERENCE ON EARTH FOR COLLEGE BASKETBALL, MAKES SENSE TO ME, GLAD TO SEE OTHERS ARE PAYING ATTENTION, IF YOU BUILD IT, THEY WILL COME!

TO BRIAN
THEY AREN'T BORED THEY ARE INTRIGUED THAT DEPAUL HAS 3 STUD ATHLETES COMING IN NEXT SEASON, AND THEIR AAU PROGRAM PLAYED AGAINST THOSE GUYS, SO IF THOSE GUYS ARE COMING, THEY HAD TO TAKE A PEEK THEMSELVES TO SEE WHAT THE HUBBUB IS ABOUT!
TO MATT TAYLOR
THESE PEOPLE AS YOU PUT IT, HAVE ONE OF THE MOST DYNAMIC AAU PROGRAMS IN THE COUNTRY, AND THEY HAVE A STABLE FULL OF PRIME BALLPLAYERS, SO THEY CAME AND THEY BROUGHT SOME OF THE STABLE!
THE JABARI PARKER YOUNGSTER IS SONNY PARKER'S SON, THE FORMER NBA PLAYER, AND THE KICKER IS JABARI IS ONLY A FIRST YEAR HIGH SCHOOL PLAYER, SO MIDNIGHT MADNESS IS A BIG DEAL CONSIDERING MR. PARKER HAS BEEN OFFERED A SCHOLARSHIP BY ALOT OF COLLEGES AND HE HASN'T EVEN SCORE A POINT IN HIGH SCHOOL!
IF YOU BUILD IT, THEY WILL COME!
DEPAUL IS GOING TO BIG SOMETHING SPECIAL!
THANKS TO JEAN LENTI-PONSETTO, THE ATHETIC DIRECTOR AT THE LARGEST CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY IN THE COUNTRY, DEPAUL UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO!

When it's all said and done, none of those guys mentioned will win a thing!

outside of phil's incessant need to shout in all of his posts, exactly how many solid NBA players has DePaul put in the NBA in the last 10 years? 15 years even? 1? maybe? and puhlease dont offer up Q Richardson, or Bobby Simmons.

It is alleged a homeless man said to Wainwright last year 'Hey Coach, your post players really suck.'

period.

there is no way depaul gets mike shaw or wayne blackshear cuz they are both going to illinois so stop dreaming.The other two are going to some big ten school anyway.

IT'S ONE THING TO HAVE THEIR BUTTS IN THE STANDS (CONGRATS).IT'S ANOTHER TO GET THEM TO COME TO DEPAUL (HOPE SO). THE MILLION DOLLAR QUESTION IS WILL THE COACH KNOW HOW TO ............................(TAKE YOUR PICK) A. BLEND THEM TOGETHER AS A TEAM B. SUPPORT THEM(HAVE THEIR BACKS,ACADEMICALLY AND SOCIALY WITHIN THE DEPAUL COMMUNITY) C. BE AN EFFECTIVE BENCH COACH(GOOD LUCK).
