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.
