For the sake of context, Tigers laid 53 points on Cornell in the first half Saturday night, went into the break up by 34. With three frosh still improving week to week, they are going to terrorize a lot of folks at Jadwin from here out. Penn was lucky to get them at the Palestra in January.

You don't make an angel food cake out of gravel. John Wooden wouldn't have a winning record at this point with our talent.

Face it. We might have maybe 2-3 extra wins, but so what. As far as league play, we will be lucky to go 7-7. Very lucky. Cornell, Brown, Dartmouth, and a split with Yale. My personal prediction is 5-9. We don't have the horses. Give the man a chance to bring in a couple of classes.

Coach must bring in the talent. In the meantime, make as much as possible with what he has. That "tournament" championship is worthless as a recruiting tool. The 20+ wins meant a lot more. So next year is when you should reasonably expect to see something, not before.

Addendum to above.

You do all understand, I hope, that the coach came on board in April of '16. Ergo, his direct recruiting efforts are all frosh this year. So unless you seriously expected a "Fab Four" reincarnation, you are getting the upperclass leftovers of the great migration from our 20+ win team, with a record to match.

I suggest you wait till next year before serious bitching.
