Re: 2019-20 season

The scheduling this coming season, to date, if far more attractive and challenging than the cup cake city of recent years. I do not expect (or want) a schedule filled with top 50 programs, but having a good balance is important. Having 250 and up ranked programs does little for player development no...

Re: State of the program

I would suggest my aforementioned s__t show started after the 14/15 season. 2 competent players who seemed to me to be good team players (Lalanne and Esho) graduated. Nothing significant was added to the team which still hadTre Davis and Jabari's Hinds productive players with seemingly good team att...

Re: State of the program

I do not think there is any objective way to look at what happened the last 2 years (and even longer) as a s__t show.
The hope is now in year 3 with Bergeron and the Woodstock crew that next year will be decidedly different.

Re: 2019 Recruiting

Think Marshall would have a longer leash than 2 years anywhere he went. With 6 or 7 NCAA tournament appearances at Winthrop in 9 years and with a great run at Wichita he would have a long leash where ever he went. He would be a great hire and an even better higher if Self goes to the pros.

Re: 2019 Recruiting

Let me add, if we get a point guard I am all for it, because we need it. But another wing or big is less of an immediate concern.

Also I hope Laurent stays. He is a good shooter and, while he lacks consistency, he is older and hopefully can provide some leadership to the freshmen.

Re: 2019 Recruiting

I am not convinced that bringing in all of these guys makes sense. Given that with no players (aside from Laurant if he is still around) we have no scholarships available for high school class of 2020. I am not sure if Clergeot also is a 2020 graduate but why leave yourself only 1 or 2 (at most) sch...
