Transfer talent at MU over last 45 years - FIJItiger MU - 3/24 14:17:14
     He may have 'only' been the 4th best player in 81 and 82... - marcus aurelius SEMO - 3/24 23:09:24
          Good point, I agree - FIJItiger MU - 3/25 07:40:44
          Moon was one of my favorites...could play some D... - BandG MU - 3/25 00:42:31
               Moon would have shown CM what elite defense really is. - sprintcar STL - 3/25 07:50:11
                    RE: Moon would have shown CM what elite defense really is. - marcus aurelius SEMO - 3/25 09:20:47
     Are you equating JUCO players w/ transfers that switch - Sigma MU - 3/24 15:29:24
          Yes, incoming transfers. Players who transfer to MU - FIJItiger MU - 3/24 15:39:37
               Not the same, but you can twist to make a point. - Sigma MU - 3/25 09:12:39
                    I'm with you on that - longtimereader MU - 3/25 13:27:04
                         JUCO and transfers have different dynamics. One is - Sigma MU - 3/25 15:05:06
                         I would break transfers down into 3 categories - wu-tangtiger MU - 3/25 14:00:14
                              Ville & KU in this cycle both signed coveted JUCO players. - Sigma MU - 3/25 15:06:48
                                   The Ville signee has entered his name into to NBA draft - wu-tangtiger MU - 3/25 15:18:05
                                        NBA ready negates your pt of JUCO not as talented. - Sigma MU - 3/25 15:25:36
                                             For him sure - wu-tangtiger MU - 3/25 15:29:52
                                                  Why compare the two?Each has players that can help MU. - Sigma MU - 3/25 16:01:45
                                                       Juco talent overall is down now - wu-tangtiger MU - 3/25 16:05:10
                                                            JUCO talent > Grad transfer. Look at last season & this - Sigma MU - 3/25 16:13:38
                                                                 I would go the other way and take a grad transfer - wu-tangtiger MU - 3/25 16:17:13
                                                                      LOL! Pontificating again. - Sigma MU - 3/25 16:19:43
     Based on that, the transfers look as - GA Tiger MU - 3/24 14:33:42
          They usually are which is why I don't get why people - tgr MU - 3/24 16:54:08
               It is a great way to get better...you need to build the ... - BandG MU - 3/25 00:44:49
               It’s an unstable, nearly impossible to maintain, method - alwaysright MU - 3/24 22:17:10
                    For a school like Mizzou transfers need to be a regular - wu-tangtiger MU - 3/25 08:27:02
                         Ok. Like 1 every couple of years. - alwaysright MU - 3/25 10:28:04
                              I would think more often than that - wu-tangtiger MU - 3/25 10:57:16
                                   1 per year is the max you can take and have a remotely - alwaysright MU - 3/25 11:09:57
                                        Too many good coaches have taken more than that and had - wu-tangtiger MU - 3/25 11:59:29
                                             Too many? Try not many. If you do that you are at - alwaysright MU - 3/25 12:51:48
                                             You can take more but you have to do a good job of vetting - sprintcar STL - 3/25 12:29:28
                                                  That’s true for any kind of recruit (nm) - wu-tangtiger MU - 3/25 12:39:06
               Haith probably went a little to transfer heavy - wu-tangtiger MU - 3/24 16:59:18
     Was Ratliff really the second best player - wu-tangtiger MU - 3/24 14:31:14
          Yes, behind Marcus Denmon - FIJItiger MU - 3/24 14:43:01
               Or Pressey or Dixon his last season - wu-tangtiger MU - 3/24 14:47:07
                    I guess by best I mean most important - FIJItiger MU - 3/24 14:49:17
                         He was the only interior player - wu-tangtiger MU - 3/24 14:52:51
                              I would personally rank that team as such - FIJItiger MU - 3/24 15:22:50
                                   you could rank 1-5 on that team in any order - wu-tangtiger MU - 3/24 16:35:19
