But although Cole has yet to land, this seems clear evidence that CMA molded a group of mid-major kids into a solid and competitive Big East team. Posh, Champ, Moore, Dunn, and Wusu were the only BE-caliber players on the team.
And this is why, despite the turmoil and uncertainty this freebie transfer rule has caused, I'm confident that CMA and Staff will build a better team to compete in 2021 - 22.
Let's go Johnnies.

I don’t agree with much of your post although I do think CMA did a great job securing the most out of the talent he had.  But you lose all credibility when you suggest Williams is not a Big East caliber player .

Poorly written and unclear on my part: I meant to say both GW and Moore were also Big East players, whom I think will land at high major programs.
Marcellus too although he's not the player he thinks he is, but he was key to our team and he'll be missed.

As The Honorable Monte has previously posted Marcellus' game was tailored for CMA's style of play.  If San Diego does not play a high energy - uptempo style then Marcellus may regret his transfer. 




 


I object to promoting Monte to the "honorable" Monte, for obvious reasons.

As for San Diego, something is going on there - I believe they also got a transfer from Pitt.  I love Marcellus and I hope he shines there.  Great kid, easy to root for.
 

I believe both kids wanted to be within the delivery area for the DDD legend OB Noodle House.

Always a crapshoot to try to guess why kids decided to leave and go where they did. The Duke gave us great energy, was probably our best post defender and hit a surprisingly good percentage from three, including some big ones. If he wants to play overseas, he sees his best chance as a wing who can hit the three and can't argue with that but not what we needed hence reduced minutes from soph to junior year. Interestingly, SD was last in three point attempts in league that takes a fair amount. Would not be at all surprised if Duke was told they need him to shoot a lot of threes and perfect climate doesn't hurt. Godspeed and good luck, you were a Johnnie who did the uniform proud!

They won an NCAA tournament game a lot more recently than our beloved school.

You mean you aren't moving to San Diego so you can more closely follow his journey to the NBA?

The San Diego hoops board just got a new member with the screen name  “ The Toreros Terror “.     I think we all know who that is :)

Wow.  I do not remember that game (yes I felt compelled to look it up).  They held the oft discussed duo of AJ Price and Wiggins to a total of 5 points.   That's actually a pretty good UConn team they beat.  Austrie, Adrien Thabeet and Stanley Robinson.
