Pecora would be a perfect hire. He was highly valued by Wright, is a local guy who would live here, would not be looking for the next best deal to come along, and the Big East would be an upgrade from Qunnipiac. He had a pretty good run at Hoftsra before failing at Fordham. I don't think he would be looking for another HC job, and I believe he would be an asset here as an assistant.

I would be happy w Pecora or Rice. It seems to be obvious to most posters, but not Mullin. We NEED another recruiter. W this new transfer rule, Matt will have his hands full. I know we re not going to get anything out of Mitch in the recruiting dept and have my questions how much we are going to get out of Mullin. Not to sound too negative, dont expect much out of St. Jean also. Many Posters arent calling for Mullins head at this time, but are frustrated w his stubborness in not adding another staff member

The only thing people should be worried about is Ponds coming back. If he does we will sneak into tourney and everyone can take one year off from worrying and complaining.

Wait. Mullin wasn’t on campus for Femi visit ?

My understanding is that the first campus visit was unofficial but another official visit is coming.

Hard to believe. He had a meeting with Owens yesterday on campus.

Hey he stopped sitting on tables for you. Cut him some slack! Hopefully he was busy whispering in Ponds ear that none of his NBA contacts think you are getting drafted.

Even with Ponds back, who are our bigs? Keita and Roberts are supposed to be very raw. Diakate is recovering from a pretty significant injury and is an OSNA kid which means he's also raw. Yakwe and Owens left. We still haven't gotten any grad transfers. Even if Ponds has a NPOY type season, I have a hard time believing we make the tourney next year even totally healthy without a real assistant coach and at least 2 real bigs added.

The only unknown is whether Mullin was asked to hold off on hires until the Slice comes off the books. That's a real possibility, and I don't know the answer.

Keita will get 7 and 6.
That matches Owens.
Perimeter players will carry us in weaker BE. Ponds comes back and we make the tourney. If we don't Ponds should never ever be mentioned in same breath as Hatten again as the players around him will be better than Hatten's were.
Ponds back we Dance. Book it.
Following year everyone can go back to panic mode.
