I see no sense in going to Europe. Last night on a 'Sportstalk' interview, among other European BS, Coach raved about communicating with a Polish recruit by some Google program.

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE PLAYGROUND HERE in the good ole 'States' with regular ole superstars that may talk a little slangy but I don't think a translator is needed.

Of course I see less need in our nation as a worldwide presence than I used to too. Its called cutting back, saving some money, investing in our house, ECT !

Hopefully he is a big, because if we can't land one in this country we better get one from some other country. We had a big from GA and apparently he wasn't that good.

yeah, at least now we'll understand why Coach has to be so expressive on the courtside - so the playa may now get what he's been trying to figure out at practice for so long.

What does the NikeJam have to do with the Four Nations Cup? Why bump this from a year ago?

This wasn't about recruiting. It was a national team that Martin was the assistant coach for and Thornwell and Johnson played on.

Makes no sense, Martin is a coach on a National team that will play in Europe, Thornwell and Johnson were invited to play on the team and therefore they all traveled to Europe, I'm sure he will scout Europe as some of the greatest basektball players in the world reside in Europe.... We would have been an ugly team this year without LChat and Kacinas.

makes no sense ? to stay home each night in yer own bed with family, maybe even save the school a little $$, see the best we (as in us, the USA, homeboys, and some of the best) - or go to Europe to recruit a player that may not even understand the language ! makes no sense ? and you did mention scouting (over there), right ?

I revived this year old thread just because the NikeJam is rolling into town, and CoachMartin has not shown any interest in past two seasons, like some of the best coaches and schools in the nation do annually, that's all I mean.

The Four Nations cup was a tournament where a group of players from the U.S., featuring players from many different schools, competed. USC doesn't pay anything. It's not about scouting or recruiting. Please understand this.

Your lost so I will throw you another bone, it was a National Team, USA, America, your country, not a USC team so therefore it cost USC nothing and gave the young men as well as the coach some free travel and teaching time together! To each his own, some people enjoy going home every night and doing the same thing every day, I traveled the world working, took every adventure I could find along the way and the couch and family were still here when I returned...

Don't know, so I'll just ask. Maybe a coach at an Under Armour school is not welcome at the NikeJam. Is that possible?

There are a lot of good players in Europe; there's nothing wrong with getting a nice pipeline in place. USC has a lot of international students and a top International Business Program, which gives us an "in" with those recruits.

let me throw you a bone...

Sorry, haven't seen the first European, but they's enough future superstars down here to make a Tarzan movie (sorry but that's an adjusted comment folks used to make about certain situations). Incredible talent on display for all, 32 games today on the 4 courts AND IT GOES ON THRU SUNDAY !! THE REAL DEAL !

They play those all summer, all over the country... I'm not sure how well received Martin would be with a big Under Armour logo on his shirt walking into the Nike.... If it was an Under Armour tourney he would have been there in front and in charge, bet you!

fraid not, UA is fully represented if not officially then in the crowd and on the court; the swoosh is the sponsor but they're not threatened at all, you can bet on it. 300 coaches and schools are here, all swoosh ?

and Like I said, this is in your backyard, not all over the country.
