I really like QM and his wit, humor, zeal. Am pretty sure that I will always root for him.
I'll 'third' the high-fives for Airowe. (When the question was asked about the Duke interest history in QM I was really hoping there wouldn't be a direct answer.) And, frankly, I find it incredibly hard to believe that Duke "never wanted (QM)." Seems like a very silly over-statement, given all the recruiting activity around him, his obvious talent level, and of course his good character/personality (and disdain for all things faded blue). Just the kind of kid you want to see succeed.
Best of luck QM! For your sake I certainly hope Baylor stays off of suspension the next couple of years.
I love Quincy, but it is weird that he chose Baylor while they are under investigation. I will believe him innocent unless it is proven otherwise, but I think people will definitely be looking into it due to the circumstances of a guy with March Madness written all over him choosing a place that may not see March for a few years.
Looking at it from another point of view, it appears that Quincy was serious in really wanting to play with Bello. They really only had two legit options in Louisville and Baylor and with recent commits to Baylor it would be much easier for Bello to see big minutes right away at Baylor.
Also, if I were a top 10 recruit and was pretty sure I'd be one and done, I would simply wait until April to see who goes pro, what happens with a lockout and where I'd get my 22 shots per game!
The investigation that is happening now could very well affect him next year. It is a program that is already being investigated. These things mean he may not get a chance to go to a tourney and he may be found out much sooner than guys like Rose and Mayo who were at a program that was somewhat under the radar of investigations prior to them coming along.
I think either way he'll be getting plenty of shots at Baylor next year.
I miss the weekly "Look what QMiller put on this twitter." so I scope it out and look what I found.
@AustinRivers25 yessiirr bro! Do your thing at Duke! Great school. I promise we'll meet up next year though!
Does this still mean we have a chance with Miller!!! JOKING.
Quincy just reported via Twitter:
qmillertime: Day started off good finding out I got a 1270 on the SAT. Gonna have a good day!!
Without causing a problem here....pretty sure the SAT is out of 2400 nowadays, correct?
National averages are around 1500 or so with the current SAT. It seems that Baylor generally has students a little above that, so for an athlete to be given that much leeway I don't think is terribly unusual.
[QUOTE=COYS;441695]They are out of 2400, but if I'm not mistaken, a lot of kids still throw out the writing portion when they are casually talking about their score to get it back on the more familiar 1600 scale.
I have senior in high school and yes many, perhaps most, kids toss out the writing score. In addition, many admission departments also toss out the writing score so I would guess that Quincy was referring to a score out of 1600.
The NCAA tosses out the writing score when calculating eligibility, so I'd think that Quincy was doing it the NCAA way. If that's true, a 1270 is quite good for an elite basketball athlete (or really anybody, for that matter). The only players on our team last year that I know definitely better than that were Zoubek, Kelly, and Peters (if he counts; there are possibly others...) Quincy must be pretty smart.
Here's the NCAA chart:
