It takes an extra five seconds to get into Providence park than it does when they didn’t do the Covid card check. Just before the TSA check there is someone standing there to view the picture on your phone. Then you flip to the ticket in your seat geek app and scan it at the end of your belongings check. You can do the whole thing at walking pace.

They scan your season card at UP, but the idea would be the same. I’ve even seen some of the same employees at both venues. Just have the picture queued up on the phone.

Beginning next Thursday, September 2, students, staff, and faculty who do not comply UP’s vaccination policy won’t be allowed on campus.

"Students who are still unwilling to work with University staff to either seek an exemption or submit proof of vaccination will ultimately lose ID access and will be prohibited from campus until their case is resolved through the student conduct process," students were told in an email.

Currently, 93% of students have submitted their vaccination status or reason for exemption, leaving 252 students who are not compliant. UP employees are compliant at a rate of 99.72%.

Details to follow, but I am told that beginning with the men's soccer game against OSU this coming Friday September 3, and continuing until further notice, fans must prove they are vaccinated or show proof of a negative COVID test within the past 72 hours before they are admitted to any UP sporting event.

Prior to having their ticket scanned, fans will be required to show their photo ID and either their vaccination card or a photo of their card on their phone.

UP students and employees will not have to show their cards, just their UP ID, as they have already been vetted by the university.

So a week into classes now, I guess it’s safe to say the team is set and that last scholarship won’t be filled?

Maybe instead we could have one of those awesome “you’re on scholarship now” clips for Miles Turner or Wyatt Watson. I could watch those all day long.

A "you're on scholarship now" would be nice, but neither Wyatt nor Miles has a need, nor do the other FOUR walk-ons who include Coleman Lemke, Chika Nduka, Liam Faler, and now as of a couple of days ago, returning player from last season, Cly Griffith, Jr.  Yup, 6 walk-ons!   

Not sure if Cly will get to wear his old number 0 this year after freshman Yaru Harvey claimed it, but Cly is a hardworking, high energy, and high character guy who deserves an opportunity to show he can play…and I am told he will get that chance.

So, are you saying Griffith played on scholarship last year, and will be a walk-on this year?

Griffith played in all 21 games last year, starting none, averaging 14.8 minutes/game. He was basically the 7th man. His shooting and scoring did not match his CC performances, shooting 36% (vs. 51%) and 4.9 points/game (vs. almost 21). Hopefully he can improve his game under a new coach. Since there are only 6 scholarship players who transferred in with D-1 experience, Griffith could be a key substitute as the freshmen are getting acclimated to playing at this level.

Yes!

Cly took classes and worked-out with the team all summer while the staff looked for opportunities for him at other schools, and it turned out the best opportunity was to stay at UP, get some academic scholarship money, and help the team.

It is kind of a head scratcher.

It is possible the staff expects to show the program is turning around by winning quite a few more games than predicted…and then use the leverage of the team’s winning ways and the 13th scholarship to attract a player who might be considering transferring from his major school to get more playing time…maybe even at mid-season.

Or not… scratch

Cly is now "officially" on the roster, but will be wearing a new jersey number this season...#31!

Has UP MBB ever had a #31?  I cannot think of any player wearing that number in at least the last 30 years.  scratch

Sid wore #31 and his son, Sherrard, wore #34 about 15 years ago...interesting.

I did not see Sid play, but Sherrard, with his long and loping strides, could light it up on occasion.

As expected, Ahmed Ali has signed to play professionally in Croatia.

DoubleDipper wrote:#13 Eddie Davis from Port Salerno, Florida, and arguably one of the two best players on last year's squad (remember his 22 points and 9 rebounds against OSU?), has finally found a new school...Tarleton St. in Stephenville, Texas.

I am told Coach Legans would like to have kept him on this season's roster if Eddie had been doing better in the classroom.
No idea what went down, but Eddie is now at D2 Cal State San Bernardino.

It could be he just couldn't get along with Coach Billy Gillespie at Tarleton St., if so, he wouldn't be the first.

Truly a D1 quality player, he should tear it up in the CCAA.
