The haters just aren't going to like this at all.  Best D2 commitment of the harper ERA. 

Now we should be able to finally beat Kentucky Wesleyan.

I guess I can get a little outlandish with my comparisons sometimes, but watching this video I just can't help but think Fred plays a lot like D-Wade. Got to think growing up in that part of the country that Wade was a player he modeled himself after. Plays a lot like him. Check out this highlight video.

This guy will be our best player the day he steps on campus.

I am so happy he's a future Topper!
Felton had Marcus
Horn had Lee
Harper has Edmonds

That's awful good company for a kid that will only be here 2 years...

I hope you're right but the key factor in making both of those players great might not be here with this kid.

Just a note, it's an NCAA violation to communicate with prospects while they are on-campus.

Edmond is on an official visit, so I'd assume he's still here. When he leaves, I'll be in-touch, and will get an article up.

if you doubt harper is amazing and the right guy you're a hater. story of wku message boards(but not the community as a whole).

he's a stud, but not counting anything until he qualifies and plays.

To be honest you don't even count them when they do play. Most of the time its but this but that but...

First off I'm not drinking the .."best Harper recruit" either and till he steps on the court anything could happen...

but why does everything good and this is "good" for the program always has to be in a negative tone to you?

Honestly couldn't you just leave it as a ..."good commitment" ?because at this point that's exactly what it is.

It's because NB is a hater. 

NB, i don't group you with anyone else. Other people express concerns in a fair way. You just moan and complain a whine and are just bitter about everything within this program. I don't know why, and really don't care. It doesn't bother me any more, i'm just trying to let you know why people call you a hater. When bad things happen, it's "D2 coach, blah blah blah. Cant coach, can't recruit, can't develop, can't game plan, whatever else." Then Harper does each of those things just to spite you almost, and then its like "oh well thats good but..." and then you throw in the most off the wall negative statements to justify your negativity. We all know how this works now. It bothered me last year. A year later and it's still the same song and dance from you. At this point I don't think anyone even cares anymore. Your posts on this board mean about as much as Carolina Topper's used to on the Haven.

http://onlineslangdictionary.com/meaning-definition-of/hater

From the urban slang dictionary:

hater    

noun



What Harper has already done is amazing.   We were on track to have our worst team in school history and in three weeks he turned that team into a NCAA tournament team.  That was amazing and something I will never forget.  You forgot it the next day.  

Now we land a stud recruit and you just have to get your little negative comment in there.  'Well, IF he get's here.'  

You are the very definition of a hater.

Re: Fred Edmond commits Post Rating (1 vote)


until we have a consistently winning and entertaining product on the court, i'm not going to be convinced that harper was anything but lucky. i'm not impressed with losing, and to this point see little improvement in the roster. the best players on the roster were mcdonald recruits STILL. we have no clue how this incoming class will do, and until they play and contribute significantly, it'll largely be the same team that couldn't even get to the sun belt finals. i'm not going to be pollyanna guys. you can believe in this staff if you want, but i'm not going to until i see a legit change in basketball. call me a hater i don't care. just don't question my fanhood. i'm not a superfan like brain/guns. i'm an haf member but don't have the funds to support every program so i support one i think deserves it the most. to this point, mens basketball doesn't until things change significantly.

as far as fred edmond, he is a legit player, and was when he committed to us BEFORE. his talent is potentially harpers unicorn. NOTHING i've said is untrue about him. if he signs in november, again that's huge, but he has to qualify. Jwells still has mentioned that as a question.

I'm not gonna take the time to address your points in the first half of that post because it's been done all summer and you won't listen to any of us. No one expects you to be Pollyanna about anything. I don't think anyone really minds you still having questions about this team. 518 has doubts and you don't see any of us jumping on him every post. The difference is that he isn't incessant and unnecessarily negative over everything that happens whether good or bad. But for whatever reason that's just type the person you are. Live your life man. Do your thing. Just don't get mad when we say you're a hater, because HAF fee or not a hater is 100% what you are.

I would agree with this comparison. Obviously not the same player, but yes, same skillset.

I think Edmond could be a game-changer. Not a program-changer..he's not C-Lee, not Chris Marcus. But is he arguably the best pickup of the Harper-era so far, even after some recent really good ones? Yes.

As NB has said, he's still gotta get through school. And I'm not saying he's not going to, but I am saying I'd exercise some caution about excitement.

There's a reason his offer list doesn't match up with his ability. Even after a successful academic year in JUCO.

thank you for supplying the definition of hater.  that's what i mean/meant when i've used the term.  i can't help it if people don't know that hater is not how we hate on isis.  hater is exactly what urban dictionary said.  when i compiled the hater hall of fame on haven you would have thought i accused them of being pedophiles.  nobody hated like dave chappelle's silky johnston but some of the ray haters are equal to buck nasty's level of hating.

this guy is a flat out scorer.  a lot of his 3's in the video were uncontested.  his defenders were backed off him.

that said, they were backed off him because his handles are good enough to go around folks.

very good body control through contact and his array of running through the lane at full speed shots impressed me.

don't know about his dee from watching the video but that'll work its way out once he gets here if he ever does.  i'm pleased he's committed but will get excited when he signs and more excited when i actually see him on the floor in a topper uniform.

i'm not gonna get my titties twisted over nbd2 doing what nbd2 does best.  haters gonna hate.  lol.

Re: Fred Edmond commits 


Some people are not happy, unless they're unhappy.  Took me a long time to learn to ignore those people.  I finally learned that the only thing that makes them happier than being unhappy, is upsetting others with their unpleasant opinions.  It must really drive them crazy that our Athletic Department is aggressively proactive in improving every team we field at WKU.  No school is perfect, so there will always be something to complain about.  But it's just dumb to not want to see and applaud WKU's administration for their hard work and vision for the future.

Go Tops!!
