Rumors and hopes over Coach Tom Matukewicz are starting to surface. Players like some of the rearrangement of practice timings. Players seem to like the new coaching staff so far. Rumors of 'increased discipline' are a good thing, if true. Anybody hear anything else?

  • All true, Coach Tuke is holding the boys hands to the fire, but they seem to embrace the higher expectations. It goes without saying, the team wants to win. I am waiting to see if the training program is going to change.

    Heard he's already been out recruiting local talent. I like that. I never personally saw Samuel at a local basketball game.

    Nope not a single one. Seen where Tuke has been at a lot. I like that.

    Well if he has already been to "a lot" then he is already in trouble because a head coach is allowed only a few visits.

    He wouldn't be visiting with anyone. Anyone can attend a high school basketball game to watch players.

  • Pretty good recruiting class for a start. Like Monroe, Cooper, Fallert, the Michels, Wright, Pickler, McCrary, and Brown. Hope all the new recruits arrive and settle-in fast.

  • See where they announced a 12 month program. Must have finally got the funds to feed an house these kids over the summer. After consistently losing it is finally realized this is a must to even be on the same playing level. I'm sure Mr Alnutt knew this an made this happen. It's too bad Billings an Coach Sam were the ones who had to sacrifice

  • Can't really make many judgments right now. He is still putting the Redhawks in the right direction. Like he said when he got here; year 3 and 4 are really when they should start competing at a higher level.

    Do you see this team competing without McRoberts next year?

    -- Posted by NewTigerFan on Mon, Oct 19, 2015, at 12:03 AM
  • Yes, they will compete next year because they are building more depth. Having McRoberts is great, no doubt, but having more weapons that have decent talent (albeit not necessarily "extraordinary, like PMac) will bode well for SEMO. They need depth to be able to absorb some injuries and give Vandeven multiple targets so defenses can't key so much. This is a 3-4 year project for sure.
