Another year for Cowan?

Recommended Posts

NCAA has already ruled to give “spring” athletes an extra year of eligibility because of all this. They are considering doing the same for “winter” athletes. Basketball is a “winter” sport. 

If the option were there, would Cowan want to come back for a 5th year?

On Sr Day I heard that he is already in a Masters program. Another year and he could just finish that.  He had missed out on the most important part of his Sr year. He could come back and set the all time scoring record. The negatives would obviously be more classes and a year missed of earning. Whether that earning is in basketball or another field.

I hope so.  If he came back along with Stix we would be one of the favorites to win it all.  Jalen might be a lottery pick so if he left I would completely understand.  Hope he comes back though.

As far as I'm concerned, every senior on every team across the country should have the opportunity to come back.  Doesn't matter what team or conference. They had their chance at glory snatched away.  And that sucks.

Could be his Senior year he was in a master's program.  Tim Tebow did something similar I think, where he finished school early but used his last year on a Master's program.  Maybe it wasn't Tebow, but I know it was someone famous, college wise.  I wouldn't think he'd come back.  I think he has enough on his resume to play in NBA D-League or overseas, if not the NBA.  I hope and think Jalen might come back, but who knows.

Reminds me of Terps 1st half basketball.  Recruit him if Cowan can't return?

    • It is certainly about the $$$, the union wants players to be paid and owners want some tv revenue. They (MLB) will claim it is an attempt to get back to normalcy, but there would be little normal about it. Without fans it will be more like a scrimmage or sim game IMO. Honestly, if I was a vet player, sacked away millions (like Chris Davis), I'd hang up my spikes rather than go through this mirage ball in the desert.
    • Uggh.  Sorry to hear that. My wife is from LI so we are starting to hear about extended family and family of friends with it.  
    • But is that true?  Or is it completely true?  Do 20-year-old players who, for example, tear an ACL and miss a season come back at the same level they were a year before? Does physical maturity and working out and studying film not play some role in development?  It can't be all game action. We could look at WWII.  Lots of guys early in their development took a year or three off, then came back to play in the majors.  Carl Furillo.  Was a prospect, got to the high minors where he hit .280 at the age of 20.  Missed three years due to the war.  Came back at 24, in 1946, and was a starter for the Dodgers for the next 15 years. Guys like Al Dark and Dale Mitchell didn't start their pro careers until 24 because of the war.  Then were almost immediately MLB starters.  Hoot Evers played one MLB game in '41, hit .322 in the Texas League in '42, missed three years for the war, then was immediately a starter for the Tigers and others for 12 years.  Warren Spahn went 17-12 in the Eastern League in '42, missed three years, came back and had a 2.94 ERA in the majors in '46.  Ted Williams and Stan Musial lost years to the war, but aside from the blanks you couldn't tell.  They were great before and after. Then there's guys like Charlie Fox or Clyde Vollmer who were prospects before the war and kind of had their careers derailed. I don't know.  But I don't necessarily think a year off is a huge deal.
    • Couldn't you make it at least as many innings as a Little League game?? Two times through the line up. You'd also have to be creative on extra innings as has been discussed here a few times.
    • My friend who they send home with the virus,is now in the hospital. At least not on a ventilator yet but oxygen and can't eat.And this:    
    • No mound visits? So no tagging either? The catcher sits in the stands? And when 25 to how many players shower what happens? Some of the players will be coming from hot spots.I guess money is the main point of it.Seems like if you play in Arizona that July might be a better idea.Models by then show very few cases.
    • When I was a teenager the standard issue TV/radio announcer was a kind of straight-laced middle-aged guy who soberly described the action.  Some a little more character or personality, one or two were Chuck Thompson, but that was the model.  So when you first heard John Madden or Chris Berman or Dick Vitale it was pretty cool.  These guys got into it!  They were different and interesting and came up with nicknames and catch phrases. Now that I'm 48 I think all of them are more annoying than anything else.  Will you please... just... stop... yelling.  It's the bottom of the 4th, it's May, it's a grounder to short, that's okay, it really doesn't have to be the best thing ever.
