It’s time for another edition of the Twitter Mailbag. Some of today’s topics include: cookout side dishes, recruiting, and too early rankings. As always, you can submit your questions to us on our Twitter page.
what side are you bringing to the function— Ben Goren (@BenG412) June 1, 2017
In most situations, Mac & Cheese counts as a main dish. But at a cookout, it masquerades as a side dish. An elite side dish at that. If that’s in your wheelhouse, that should be the go-to. Coleslaw is also a strong option. Baked beans too. Or just bring booze. (ed. note: just bring booze)
Is a hot dog a Sandwich?— NBA Finals Eli (@Elirussell5252) June 1, 2017
Yes. Also, ketchup is a better condiment for hot dogs than mustard. All other takes are wrong.
Have you ever had a cactus cooler— Peter The Anteater (@PeterTAnteater) June 1, 2017
I admittedly had to Google what this was, so no I have not. I’ll actually be out your way next week so I might have to try one!
How is MAC recruiting for next year Looking? Who drinks Mikes Hard Lemonade in the winter?— Brian Beebe (@bbeebe) June 1, 2017
Ball State actually has a couple of nice pieces coming in for a team that made strides last year. Also, people shouldn’t drink Mike’s Hard Lemonade in general. Do they still make commercials? I vaguely remember them having annoying commercials.
What's the deal with recruiting at WKU and how will they not go undefeated in conference at the least? This class has to raise some eyebrow$— nomynameisjeffrey (@pfeiffjd) June 1, 2017
Whatever Rick Stansbury is doing there is working, and it’s working well. As far as going undefeated in conference play, I don’t think that will happen. Going undefeated in any conference is difficult, especially with a team that will rely heavily on freshmen.
Rank the top 5 things Cam is wrong about— Russell Steinberg (@Russ_Steinberg) June 2, 2017
Cam Newton’s (@MorrisonCrying on Twitter) bad takes, ranked:
1. The Simpsons being better than Family Guy
2. Not liking gummy bears
3. Liking Kentucky basketball
4. Not liking House of Cards
5. English Muffins being better than bagels
Will you move OU into the preseason top ten? y/n— Brian Schmucker (@SchmuckerBrian) June 2, 2017
Well, I had them fifth in my poll, so it’s up to the rest of our voters to follow my lead. I’m very high on them.
have you heard anything about graduate transfers Zach Lofton and Evan Maxwell?— Marc Gump (@GumpHutch) June 2, 2017
I have no intel on where either of those guys are going, but I’d imagine we’ll hear something relatively soon as we get deeper into summer. Those will be nice pickups for whoever gets them.
best cheap bar drink— Shawn Bednard (@CallMeBednard) June 2, 2017
Being a 21 year old college student, this is right up my alley. There is no best answer because it completely depends on what bar you’re at. I can usually get a decent well whiskey and Coke without burning a hole in my wallet. If the bar has a special that catches my eye I’ll give that a shot sometimes. I can’t afford the actual good stuff.
Danny Kaspar's mustache?— glomp.covfefe.ru (@yayitssports) June 2, 2017
Luscious, mesmerizing, things of that nature.
Which mid-major conference do you see getting multiple bids this year? I know WCC will, but anyone else?— William Wallace II (@willwallaceii) June 2, 2017
I think the only other conference with a shot is the Atlantic 10, and even that conference is taking a pretty sizable step back. The WCC should be a safer bet, but maybe not quite as big of a lock as the last couple of years.
Do you have a top 10 projected MM players list at this point or even a Top 5? https://t.co/tIImaITH9r— Rob Brown (@hilltopperrob) June 2, 2017
We don’t an official list (yet), but here’s a quick five: Mike Daum, Chris Clemons, Jock Landale, E.C. Mathews, Chandler Hutchison.
How high will @BYUbasketball be ranked at any point this year? Will they be ranked at any point this year?— Steve Sylte (@SteveSylte) June 2, 2017
Hey, they made our rankings! Unfortunately, I don’t think they’ll quite be able to make it into any other rankings. They’re still probably the third best team in the WCC.
