I agree. Not sure how results to date would deserve an extension of any kind.

Tough job and he has them trending in the right direction. He has recruited well, similar to SHU and Willard I think it's the right move for them to stick with him despite his results so far.


It can be done there. Pat Kennedy might have been a cheater, but it can be done.

DePaul is currently getting some of their best recruits in a long, long time. It's the right move to extend him. They will get better once the talent arrives.

Massive pickup for Marquette (Osasere Ighodaro
- #73 on 247 Composite). The league is recruiting very well and 2020 is shaping up to be one of the best Big East classes since realignment.

Current 2020 Big East class rankings:
#3 Xavier
#11 Butler
#15 Marquette
#26 Seton Hall
#39 Georgetown
#48 St. John's
#57 Providence

Xavier also is leading for Ben Carlson (#81 on 247) and will most likely finish with a top 5/10 class. The other 4 teams non listed (Villanova, UConn, DePaul, and Creighton) currently have empty classes, but that will obviously change. If the top ~50ish teams tend to earn at-large bids each year, it's a really good sign that we have 7/11 teams with recruits in the top 57. And that's WITHOUT our recent National Championship programs.

For anyone concerned over the league's performance this past month: don't be.

Been a long time since I've seen Davidson in a pre-season top 20.

I think Xavier has the best combination of veteran and incoming talent in the conference.

Gonzaga is the team I have to really compliment. A team no one heard of 20 years ago, w no major conference affiliation to a top 10 program. They are doing something right.
