We've got a scorer

Problem is he ain't available for another year. But this is good news. Key quote:

"I really like the motion offense they run," Legion said. "Coach Weber is a terrific coach and is a confidence-giver. I also have a very good relationship with (assistant coach) Jerrance Howard."

BTW, I like Alma Mater's optimism but I'm bracing for a very tough game tonight. Funny how both schools are supposed to be known for hoops and their football programs are outshining the boys on the hardwood this year.

And for the record, I believe fans who are calling for Bruce Weber's head need to have their heads examined. If you didn't see the troubles we would have this year coming, you've been living under a rock.

Eric Gordon punking us had devastating consequences. Weber also had a number of recruiting misses, some of which could be argued were his fault.

However, he is bringing in some serious studs and may have even more on the way (Luther Head's brother). And Weber has shown that he knows how to coach studs, especially guards.

If he was still struggling in the shark-infested waters of recruiting, I'd be ready to advocate for a change at the top but Weber deserves patience from us fans during what is going to be a long 365 days until Alex Legion is able to suit up and a little bit more patience while we wait for the rest of the cavalry to arrive.
