Spent the last year at Link Year Prep in Branson Missouri. Best I can tell this is some kinda Christian Prep School. Kid did have at least one other D-1 offer, IUPUI. Quite a coincidence that Link Year Prep's address is 1353 Lake Shore Drive. Also, in the link you might see us mentioned as Samson. :lol:

In an imperfect world, absolute truth is divisive. There's no unity in truth. Decide then whether truth before unity or unity before truth?

Hate to see this one get away. For that matter, hated to see the other one go too. It won’t be easy to replace either. Sad thing is, their transfers were obvious to predict.

DT is going closer to home. Losing a good player who really didn’t get to show how good he was under the last regime, in my opinion. This guy and Robert Allen played with a lot of energy and competitive fire. We lost our two best players in my humble opinion. I hope we can replace them. I can’t say that I am as optimistic about those we have returning as some have expressed on here. I hope the new coach recruits players as well as Samford recruited social media accolades about him.

Yeah, the roster has been why I've advocated the 3rd season before any appreciable turnaround (+.500 league record) is achieved. The resolve of the spoken goal to not take shortcuts will be tested early and often. Glass half-full perspective of the current situation is that Coach McMillan is more than likely going to have 7 scholarships to give between now and this time next year allowing him to bring players he desires in a short period of time. Frankly, the first year priority should be to start getting the culture fixed more so than the W/L's.

Just exactly what does that mean?

Good question. I'd say it would include building trust with players. Sometimes that even includes being honest with a player about his percieved talent level. Creating an environment where not just talent, but also hard work is rewarded and expected at all times. Not allowing any player to become bigger than the program. Eliminating a sense of entitlement. Not really culture related, but have the team be better at the end of the season than the beginning. Not a comprehensive list.
