Sometimes I get the feeling that Mullin thinks that it will take several years to bring this program to be a top 25 ranked team and continues to recruit with that as a guiding principle.

No excuse to not have any staff representing at live period events.

Sometimes you just need to show face to make it appear you are doing your job, or attempt to further strengthen relations etc.

Oh wait...Richmond must still be stuck at the ATM machine near his house withdrawing all the $100 bills from his SJU direct deposit paychecks.

With MA so involved with transfers all week, I can see him taking a breather, but surprised another staff member did not go to Dallas to see Kofi and other kids they are recruiting.

Matt-"Have a personal matter to attend to so could someone else cover the Dallas event for me?"
Rest of staff in unison-"Not my job!".

It will take much longer than that--try never at this rate, with the staff undermanned, out-of-sync and with no direction.
I hate to be this negative--but our HS recruiting is off the rails. And I've supported CM.
Kofi is the most critical recruit in our lens since Lew Alcindor. IMO, he's that critical.
To miss on him, trying like all hell 24/7 would be a blow, to miss on him, half-trying is I'm ashamed to say, a disgrace.
I'm not sick over this, but I'm close.

Could it be that all these prospective recruits are from our area and we can see them and have access to them whenever we want so there is no need to follow them all over the country. They're all right in our backyard. Just trying to be positive.

I'm off the ledge. Maybe. Seton Hall was there, UCONN, 'Cuse, and I'm sure all the major East Coast powers.
It's not as if we're operating with any major strength like record NCAA appearances or major leverage like a consistent winning tradition and/or recent BEC championships.
We're trying--or at least that's been the spin--trying to get back to that level of competition.
Those 'local' NY Metro kids, Kofi, Jalen, Aidan, Kahlil, would power that revival.
'SOmebdy' on 'staff'' should have been there.
But I over reacted and am off the 'ledge'.
Thanks Gene.

Not inclined to ever share a lifeboat with you. :)
