Is Sheldon Jeter Ready to Start for Pitt?

Does forward Sheldon Jeter have what it takes to start for the Pittsburgh Panthers this season after sitting out an entire year? Recently, an article written by fellow Cardiac Hill contributor, Aron Minkoff, got me thinking a lot more about the potential starting lineup(s) for the Pittsburgh Panthers this upcoming season.  I am not going to spend too much time speculating about...

The Pitt men's basketball team practiced on Tuesday prior to their trip to the Bahamas. As I reported previously, the Pitt men's basketball team held a practice on Tuesday prior to heading to the Bahamas to play some of the local teams from down there, and I had a chance to watch on behalf of Cardiac Hill. The best overall player at practice on Tuesday was without a doubt...

Unleash the Irrational Optimism

Don’t lie. You read the articles on the pro-am games last night. You try to tell yourself to take it all with a grain of salt. To keep perspective. And yet… Derrick Randall looks different. He’s got a different aura about him this June. Physically, he’s night and day from last summer with a stronger, leaner frame. The rising senior has more energy as he sprints up and down...

Ex-student manager Cross living the dream as Vandy hoops player

When Vanderbilt basketball calls timeout during a game, Rob Cross instinctively still has a "Pavlov's dog" reaction every now and then. For nearly four full seasons, Cross had been a team manager, including the last two as senior manager. But in January, when the roster was whittled to only seven scholarship players -- plus two walk-ins -- Cross was called into duty...

Sheldon Jeter to transfer to Pitt

Well, Pitt may not have a recruit for their 2014 class, but they will add a player for next fall as it was learned last week that Sheldon Jeter will transfer to Pitt. It's been a while so you may not remember the Jeter fiasco. But in case you need a bit of a refresher, Jeter wanted to get out of Vanderbilt and reportedly was headed to Pitt. Head coach Kevin Stallings blocked...

Sheldon Jeter Finally Can Commit

In the end, Kevin Stallings and Vanderbilt’s vindictiveness will cost Sheldon Jeter around $8000 and a delay to his education by a year. That’s my rough estimation of the costs Jeter and his family are probably incurring for this year. The travel costs to and from Florida, living expenses and tuition down at Polk Junior College. That may not sound like much in the big picture...

Basketball Collection, 9/13

Some accumulated links to make it worth doing a post, before sundown and fasting begins. On the recruiting front, Pitt is yet to officially have any commits for the 2014 class. So they make the list of teams “in trouble” with their recruiting class. The Panthers have yet to land a commitment in the Class of 2014, and the roster next season is hardly imposing. Dixon will lose...

Commodores ink two talented posts; lose Johnson for season

Send to KindleKevin Stallings had a major rebuilding project last season at Vanderbilt.  Ultimately, the Commodores came on strong at the end of the season to make it to the SEC Tournament semifinals and lost no seniors to graduation. Vandy did lose a transfer in Sheldon Jeter, who left to get closer to his Beaver Falls, Penn. home.  Now, on Monday, comes the news that leading...

Holding Court: The NCAA Transfer Rule

Sheldon Jeter's attempt to transfer has been anything but smooth. (Photo credit) It's pretty easy to move around as a coach in the world of college basketball, even after declaring that you're staying put. On March 20, 2013, just before the New Mexico Lobos played in the 2013 NCAA Tournament, the school announced head coach Steve Alford agreed to a 10-year extension...

Jeter Blocked From Transferring To Pitt

Vanderbilt transfer Sheldon Jeter is being blocked from transferring to just one school…is it SEC rival Tennessee? Nope. A team the Commandos will face next year? Nope. It’s Pittsburgh. Why? Who the hell knows. Does it matter? Jeter wants to play close to home and Pittsburgh is just 45 minutes from where he played his high school ball. He appealed his case to the university,...

Silence Remains on Sheldon Jeter

There hasn’t been any public mention of the status of Sheldon Jeter transfer situation over the holiday weekend. Whether Jeter is appealing directly to Vandy over transfer restrictions or some other quiet discussion is occurring is unknown. What is known is that after the initial outcry over the restriction on Jeter, there has been the careful pushback from Vandy/Stallings. No...

Sheldon Jeter Blocked From Transferring To Pitt

Let me just say straight up…the whole concept that a coach can block a student from transferring to another school is insane. I don’t care if the kid wants to go play for the cross-state, in conference rival, if he’s willing to sit out a year, then god bless him. The fact is, the day players can prevent a coach from going to another school, then I’ll except coaches blocking...

Sheldon Jeter Saga With A Side of Karma

Sheldon Jeter wanted Pitt to recruit him when he was a senior at Beaver Falls. He wanted to be a Panther. Pitt didn’t have a scholarship in the fall of his senior year. And after Khem Birch left abruptly, Coach Dixon looked long and hard at Jeter before going with Chris Jones. When more scholarship opened after the season, there was some interest in Jeter but it still seemed cool...

Vanderbilt snaps 4-game skid, beats Arkansas

NASHVILLE, Tenn. Lose as many close games as Vanderbilt has this season, and it would be only natural for players to start doubting themselves. That would be especially so for a team as young as the Commodores, who have no seniors and only two juniors on one of the nation's youngest rosters.
