In reply to: Informed 's message, "Re: Steven Levnaic" on Wednesday, May 04, 08:14:54pm

The kids play hard for Paulus. If the internal culture were as fractured as you suggest, then it would translate onto the court. But it hasn't. Effort is an important component of a basketball program. The NU kids seem to play hard for Paulus.

Still, the jury is out. To be a successful as a head coach, Paulus needs to win more games. The transfer portal has sent all 300+ D1 programs into a spin cycle that will require a few recruiting/transfer cycles to sort itself out.
In the meantime, it would help to establish continuity within the program by keeping a few players onboard for 2-3 years within this new NIL/transfer environment. Of course, every school would like to be able to do that. A few will. Most won't. Paulus has what appears to be a nice group of freshmen coming in. Hopefully they will bond and form a solid nucleus together. That's all you can hope for.

If not there's always the Portal.

This sure sounds like sour grapes from someone with an ax to grind. Paulis had the team playing well at the end of the yeaar. Player turnover is the way of Division 1 basketball. If you have success someone is going to take your players. With the players leaving where did they end up? Did they put the work in or were they just going along for the ride. There is always two sides to every story. Everything I have seen with Paulis and staff has been above board and they have been honest with the players. I am happy he is here and I think he has us headed in the right direction.

Nope, I'm gonna go with Informed and believe he was speaking the truth when he said Paulus essentially fired 6 players. His post had too many details to be just made up.

It's something scholarship athletes better get used to. Scholarships are technically renewable every year. Most scholarships are and have always been honored for 4 years on a path to graduation, but you can make a legitimate argument that those good faith agreements will be re-evaluated with the arrival of NIL and the transfer portal.

The athletes have new bargaining power now. They certainly have lots of freedom. If coaches, especially coaches like Paulus at the non-Power 5/6 levels, have to worry about all 13 of their guys looking for better opportunities at the end of every season, then the coaches are going to start looking at optimizing their roster. Annually. And I can't say I blame them.

I agree...if players are going to exploit the portal, so will coaches.
