I am so tired of the whining about 3*, 4* or 5* or lack thereof recruiting complaints. We are in a much better situation than the most of the last 20 years, so please...

Not that we are a school that routinely gets 5-star kids, but they are gone before they've really accomplished anything. If we can get to everyone being a 3.5/4, and land a local 5-star kid when it looks like that type kid really puts us over the top for a year before he splits, I'm happy.

We have to be realistic, though. When the Wades of the world are still allowed to be employed, it's tough for a non-football school like St. John's to make a dent. We need to fish in our realistic pond and coach them up.

With all due respect, that’s not saying much.  I’m cautiously optimistic.  Need Champagnie to come back and a solid guard piece to be set up for a nice year.  Regardless, year three for the current regime  is critical.

The way to compete and beat 4* and 5* freshman is with 3 star upperclassmen that grew together as a team. This ridiculous transfer rule created a free for all that is not doing this program any good. CMA has to incorporate 6 new players, and perhaps 7, into a system brand new to all of them. It seems to be no coincidence that CMA's teams start slow and get better as the season progresses. It takes time to play CMA's system well. It would be nice to have a core of 6 or 7 players returning each season. That now seems unlikely.
