    What's up fellas...
    Just a quick question. Every year the staff is involved with top level talent and seem to get a lot of them to get to Arizona. Question is, which recruits are you glad or relieved we DIDNT get? In my opinion that is Amadeo De La Valle. Definitely was never Arizona good. Just a late night post to relieve insomnia.

    Keith Frazier, looks like he may not have qualified.

    That's easy wait till you see Rooks in action, what an embarrassment that we even recruited this guy. He isn't even Russ Pennel AZ good.

    Is this thread in regards to guys Arizona wanted and missed out on or guys that Arizona recruited at one point and then passed on?

    Kadeem Jack decided to go to Prep School for a year instead of college. Then goes to Rutgers. Didn't play a lot first 2 years. Rutgers scandal hits and he is left with only I think 1 returner, and now is playing fairly well with plenty of minutes his junior year. He most likely wouldn't be cracking our rotation until next year or maybe would have been an 8th man this year, which could have helped our post depth. All in all, he made the right decision if his main goal was to play.

    Are we talking just the Sean Miller era?

    Or can we go back to the days of O'Neill, Pennell, etc?

    Boy, this could be fun.

    Let's throw in the Lute Olson era while we're at it. Boy am I ecstatic we passed on Emeka Okafor for Isaiah Fox. Fendi Onobun over Lawrence Hill was a good call as well.

    I guess both. Either AZ cooled or kids picked others.

As much as I like Igoudala, it kind of hurt our team that he left after 2yrs. Brandon Roy for 4years or Andre Igoudala for 2yrs, a tough choice but I would probably chose Roy for 4.

    Iggy has been nothing but good press for the school winning a hold medal and always being a top defensive performer and versatile in the league... I think I would still take Iggy over Roy

    Don't get me wrong, Iggy has been a great ambassador the U of A, shows up and supports in Tucson (unlike Arenas but that's another story) and has had a prestigious basketball career.

    I'm talking strictly about his college career and the impact Roy/Iggy could've made in the notorious 2005 tourney. I may have gotten a little off subject but that Illinois game still haunts me. haha

    We lost this guy during Lute's leave of absence while KO had the reins, if memory serves me correct he came to campus for an official and basically just sat in a dorm room with no host or anything. Decomitted soon after, went to Tennesee and had to quit ball b/c of heart problems. Thank god those days are behind us.

    Mike Moser was a verbal commit to Arizona, back in the day, several schools ago.

    KO was a douche bag.

    The leadership of the program at that time was disasterous.

    Angel Nunez is a good name for this thread. Might as well throw out Chris Thomas too.

    Dominique Ferguson is one that comes to mind.

    We never flirted with him, that was all fabricated by zagsblog and Stephenson's father.

    Ahh ok, god that guy is a super douche. What was the deal with Quincy Pondexter? I recall Lute going after him hard and thinking we had him but flipping to UW, anything to do with Budinger?
