    Beating Qunnipiac is a major reason we do so poorly in the polls.

    I don't buy the "building a nucleus" argument. Our best recruit has clearly stated his intention to be one and done. The others are question marks still. They may be great, they may be role players or they may be busts. Those with enough talent to start will more than likely jump when a coaching change is made. The idea that Manning is recruiting/building a team for another coach is silly. We are still mired in awfulness. The next hire will be yet another reset/reboot of the program. Attrition will be expected. If anyone seems negative, it's because they are accurately representing our program, our results and momentum.

    Every recruit is a one and done. Failure to recognize that shows a clear lack of understanding of basketball recruiting. Almost any player that can get drafted in the first round is going to go.

    Hoard stating it out loud just shows his personal level of confidence. I hope he gets there. I love Sarr, Brown, Hoard and Mucius as impact players in our program. Im optimistic about Wright Jr. As well. If you are getting 2 players per class that can really play you are going to be a good program. Just need to keep recruiting.

    +1 The ability to get drafted after a year in college has changed the game forever. If you're not a Duke, Kentucky, or the like who can get all the one and done players you need then it's a complicated formula each year for success. Certainly coaching is a key factor, but trying to re-make your team each season without the consistency of top recruiting is a crapshoot. We can only hope that whoever our coach is that we can develop an identity, a consistency that will smooth over the lack of top 50 recruits each season. To me, Jay Wright, John Beilein and Bob Huggins are great examples of that. As much as it will piss many of you off, you can add UNC to that list as well.
