All time titan traitor team

Postby R.B.J1 » Tue Oct 31, 2017 2:48 pm

Throughout the years we have had many great players transfer into our program, we haven't experienced many players leaving UofD and having great success elsewhere. Here is my team of titan traitors who have had success at other schools.

F-Canochet Neves (New Mexico)
F-Darrian Mckinney (Central Michigan)
F-Mike Aaron (Wayne State)
G-Jon McIntyre (Missouri)
G-Kevin Smith (Michigan State)

Honorable Mention for Ack Attack. While he did not leave, it would have made zero difference even if he had.

Brian Elve did well after he left. Dave Grauzer is in the CMU Hall of Fame. Jason Calliste had a big year at Oregon.

I wouldn't put either Neves or Aaron in this lineup, R. B. and I'll give you my reasons. Neves was from the extreme southwest corner of Colorado and he was transferring home, essentially, by going to New Mexico. We've had a number of players do the same, as you point out, among them Brandon Cotton, Tony Tolbert, Greg Wendt and Greg Grays. I don't fault Neves in the least. In Aaron's case, he transferred down to Division 2 but he played a lot as a Titan. I wouldn't think the reason had to do with playing time but I could be wrong.

I would make this a three guard lineup by putting Calliste in the traitor category. At a time when our program was riding relatively high in 2013, he moved all the way across the country to play one year at Oregon, and gave very late notice of it to boot. As a reserve, I wouldn't say he had a big year with the Ducks but they made the NCAA at least. The second spot , for me, remains vacant.

I don't remember Brian Elve at all.

i always had the impression calliste thought he was better than he actually was. he was a great player for us and i loved watching him when he was here. played with grit and determination. just never thought he would make it to the nba. but i think it likely he believed he enhanced his chances by going to the ducks. can't fault him for that. at least i don't. traiterous nevertheless!

Canochet Neves should also make the all-time Interesting Name team.

What I remember about his what that he was supposed to be an incredible leaper and an awesome dunker. Was he?

Agreed, except I'd note that Calliste actually had quite a good year at Oregon. He shot over 50% from the three (far better than ever at Detroit--I suspect he had more sense of ability to pick his spots), played over 26 minutes a game, and averaged nearly 13 points per game.

I don't really view these guys as "traitors", they had to do what was best was for them, I mainly was trying to come up with a catchy subject line. :D
