You have to look at the Madonna HC personal twitter. Or go to the other Titan board and link it there.

Hopefully, this week will bring announcements of the new roster for 2018-19 and the coaching staff.

FWIW, the Titans’ WBB 2018-19 roster is now on the UDM website. I would think the MBB roster would be soon to follow.

Earlier in this thread Titan Andrew stated that he saw an Eichler look alike shooting in Calihan Hall, Titan confirmed that Eichler is now atrending Madonna. Does anyone have any ideal who this 7 foot mystery titan is?

I believe it is Snorri Skorensen from Iceland

Thanks Commissioner, because of you, Tacitus and others, I now get spam emails and internet ads for cheap flights to Iceland. Does anyone else get these? (I find it funny)

Hey Commish, this really warms my heart. However, there is one correction: Snorri is 7’3”, not 7’. He shoots left handed but dribbles with his right foot...

It's amusing to see how the legend of the fabled Viking-like basketball recruit has grown (literally and figuratively) over the decades.

When I first encountered the legend in the 1980's, the player was a 6'8" muscular phenom of Norwegian-Swedish heritage who lived in Minnesota. Then, Don Sicko made the mistake of actually recruiting a 6'8" player from Minnesota. So, the legend grew. And so did the recruit. Until now, we have 7'3" Snorri Skorenson from Iceland. Must be the non-GMO volcanic ash organic fish diet in Iceland versus gluten filled Minnesota. And now, the legend is causing some Titan fans to receive spam emails about cheap flights to Iceland. Hope Asst Coach LeGree bought one. :D

The legend continues ...

Based upon the fact that today's season ticket promo video features Josh McFolley and today's announcement about Fox Sports televising the Butler and Xavier games in which Cole Long's photo is displayed and Gerald Blackshear is used in the press release, I think it is now safe to say that those three scholarship players are returning.

Press release about Fox Sports games against Big East opponents with Blackshear's photo.

Any word on whether or not Harrison Curry will be available this upcoming season? The 8/20 announcement stated he would have to sit out this season (pending a waiver) and will have two years of eligibility left.

Official practices begin next week. Right now, they are in limited practices. I understand that there is a rather large roster. Have not heard anything about Curry and this year. Maybe they have been waiting for the NCAA decision before announcing the roster. Who knows?

Given that Head Coach Davis (as opposed to Assistant Coach Davis - sounds like dialogue from Blazing Saddles about the real Rock Ridge versus the fake Rock Ridge)) is throwing out the first pitch tonight at Tiger Stadium, I'm hoping for some type of official announcement today on something.

Left to Right: Blackshear, Gjysma, Gorman, Curry, ?, Nguidjol, ?, Isiani, ?, Riley, ?, Knight?

Not sure of several here.

Can someone remind me which of these players cannot play this year due to transfer rules?

I didn't realize the following 5 players were on the radar; Juan Parrilla Jr, Chris Brandon, Derrien King, Lamar Hamrick, & Jordan Gorman.

The bio on Derrien King (Graduate Student) is especially interesting .... Santa Monica College, Washington State, & Angelo State.
