Notice that other teams meet/exceed expectations. We never seem to. Cursed program.

Mike ,
Mahoney’s first year absolutely exceeded expectations.
FF’s second year exceeded expectations.
Jarvis’s first season exceeded expectations.
Lavin’s first season exceeded expectations.
Can’t say never but really four times in the last 27 years. The majority of those years we clearly fell short of expectations.

Count me in the group that hopes that SJU doesn't need to "exceed" expectations when it has a good year because that IS the expectation. That is why you make coaching changes after back to back 10-8 years, because the expectation here at SJU should be to compete for BE titles year in and year out. Maybe not immediately after the coach takes over, he deserves a few years to build, but eventually that should be the goal.

Looks like the solution is to hire a new coach every two years.

Lolololol
Thanks for the comic relief. The forum was getting a little tense. We needed that!

Per Evan Daniels
Next season @ButlerMBB is bringing in four-star guard Khalif Battle. He's a top 100 recruit & the brother of Syracuse star Tyus Battle.

They recruit solid guards well

Expectations set by the most delusional fans on sports will never be met.

I’m sure 3-4 firings will do the trick, though.
