I wonder if Mullin is scheduling soft knowing this year is make or break for him. Hopefully someone tells him the committee frowns upon weak OOC schedules and it can very well keep us out of the tourney unless we wipe the floor with everyone except Duke in OOC and dominate our conference which is never easy.


Have you heard the AD or president publicly state or imply that this is a make or break year for the Coach ? Have you heard that from a member of the board of trustees ?
Please do share and enlighten us. You repeat same ad nauseum or is it just in your make believe imagination since the progress is not up to your liking.
Barring a scandal , I don’t see Coach being let go early as the school
Can not afford to swallow his contract.


There are some non-confrontational ways to reply to such posts which had zero controversial content to begin with.

Sure , so please answer the question. Who have you heard from , either the school president , AD or a member of the board of trustees , or anyone else high up in the school that this is a make or break year for Coach Mullin ? Thanking you in advance.

Full Legends Classic schedule (with regional games).

www.gazellegroup.com/main/legends/schedule-4/

Something's not right though, as Braziller still said on twitter that we are playing Cal first round. This schedule says we are playing Temple (which, I think, I'd rather do). So, we need some clarity on that, but everything else is official.

EDIT: The official press release says SJU vs. Cal in the first semifinal, which contradicts the bracket page. My guess is that we are playing Cal, because that is what has been widely reported.

Yes, just saw that. The bracket page has to be a misprint. It's got to be SJU-Cal in the semis.

Either way, we now know that the season begins for real on Election Day, Tuesday, November 6.

Putting this here, because I didn't think it deserved it's own thread.

Jon Rothstein


@JonRothstein

St. John's has the talent to be a top half Big East team, but it needs to be better in close out situations. Lost 10 conference games last season by seven points or less. #SJUBB

I think we did a better job of this once we broke the ice vs. Duke, so maybe that will help going forward. Down the stretch last year, the only wins that did not come down to the end were Marquette (which was still a close game, but I never thought we were in danger), and Georgetown (which required a second half comeback, anyway). We even won a game that we had no rights winning (Butler).

The 11 game losing streak should never have happened, but once we couldn't go back on it, I'm glad that we at least appeared to learn the lessons.

Per JonRothstein, I'd be shocked if the 2018-19 St. John's team's offense evidences the slightest comparison to last year's basically weak offensive team that relied primarily on 1 scorer, frequently double and triple-teamed.
Even without Mustapha, next season's team has far more options, including a likely improved Ponds, Simon and Clark but also Figueroa, Dixon and bulky Keita underneath to muscle some offensive rebounds and improve on our 2nd worst rebounding performance last season.
And with Heron--fuhgeddqaboudit, off the charts in comparison to 2017-18's 2nd worst BEC offensive team.
Let's go Johnnies.

Assuming that I can count, don't we have 1 more non-league game to schedule?
If so, any idea as to who the opponent might be?
I'd like to see one more marquee game on the schedule
But I would expect to see more of a St Leo's type of opponent

ATTENTION:

Major updates were made to the servers / software hosting redmen.com. There was also one significant change to the website this week to address keeping up with current standards and practices.

It has now become standard practice for all websites to be served as https (as opposed to the original http).


A couple of years ago I enabled https on the site as optional but as of today, the site is forcing https. Any link coming into the site should be automatically converted on the fly and you should not have to do anything on your end.

However if you do notice recent problems, please contact me directly via email: webmaster@redmen.com or via private message on the site.
