Interesting. Assume the SJU ranking is with MH playing. IMHO, Butler & PC too low and Xavier & Gtown a bit too high.

Wow, since Heron isn't listed as impact transfer, guess that means SJU ranking of #3 is w/o him?

Without Heron, I am more comfortable with middle of pack ranking. With him, considering the BE has lost a lot of good players, three or four seems fair. Wild card to me is how well staff performs with this talented, perimeter oriented team.

Totally agree Paultz; 3/4 ranking justified with MH playing.

Solid #3 without Heron. Will be in the running for #1 with Heron.

Jon Rothstein who is regarded as one of the more knowlegable college basketball predictors and certainly one of the hardest workers has a much more favorable outlook for this SJU team than almost all of the Redmen. com posters.
