It still remains to be seen if he can get us what even Mullin gave us e.g. a team that is just good enough to make the tourney by skin of our teeth but then get blown out. I will be thrilled if we finish 5th in the Big East or better next year. Remember that's out of 11 because UConn is coming. The recruiting still worries me because the recruits are almost always under the radar except for Posh (talking about HS recruits). I was hoping we would get Salnave due to a transfer of someone who won't get PT except in blowouts but did not happen so if one of LJ/Champ/Cole/Posh get injured it can derail the season. I just hope we have enough offense. Cautiously optimistic, but still need lots of questions answered. Let's try to be in the middle of the conference before we talk about Sweet 16's. That ain't happening next yr.

If LJ returns and the team stays healthy, CMA will have a better record next season than 21-13 (Mullin's NCAA year). Scoring may prove difficult at times but we should be the best defensive team in the Big East next year.

Really like this team if LJ does indeed come back. Deep and versatile. Improved long distance shooting. Plenty of length. Excellent defensive squad. Expectations should be top 5 BE and NCAA tourney *berth (thanks Fuchsia).

really hoping there is a season next year.... but if we see the same occurrence next "cold season", without a vaccine, don't know how similar action (no students on campus) isn't actioned given the precedent set.... not saying i agree with the action, just don't know how Universities will justify not taking the same action.

No kids on campus = No Final Four run ;) lol
