It is hard to find post players at this level. If you are decent then schools considered bigger conferences are going to get you first. Thought we had lucked out with the Robbins kid. So, should the coaches look for the Gavin's of the world then the fans complain that they are terrible and a waste of scholarship? Luckily, the Summit is not full of post players.

Mid-major coaches would be wise to chase down the 6'7" player with football build along with good hands and feet and use them at the post. The now pig farmer Marshall Bjorklund from NDSU is a good recent example. If he has a strong football background as well, odds are this guy will have a significantly better vertical than the 7 footer who has been playing AAU ball all his life and never had to jump much to slam it home. Football players train for pure explosiveness. At the combines, NFL players typically have a 6 to 8 inch better vertical than their NBA counterparts.

If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

Not a damn thing. Life would be very boring without bacon.
