I have to agree with your assesment Loyal. Most telling to me was the Marist game when their point, Devezin continually blew by Leon and Lampley.We need a 1, a 3, and a 5 to be competitive next year. I like Jenkins and Bacon has potential to really improve i feel but i see the same shortcomings you do in Leon-marginal D1 player should not be a starter,Lampley-has to learn to play the point or not D1 due to size,Gooding-lack of any offensive game relegates him to a part time or specialist type of role to me.Costner and Hogga should he return appear at best to be future role players probably off the bench.Traore little more than a few minutes per game role player off the bench.
Have to figure Mumford not really a factor as he was ticketed for a redshirt i think prior to his injury.Looked to me in the practice i saw preseason like he had a very good shot and could handle but seemed to be a bit too weak and not extrememely athletic.
This will be a crucial recruiting class as right now it's hard to see us being any better at all next year. Siena is very young,Iona has really seemed to recruit well,Marist has better young guards then we do.We may only be better than Canisius again.Still let's hope for the best and see where we are in May .

Love reading the posts. I fear when the new AD is hired -- sometime in mid-July -- we're looking and perhaps losing a "selling" year for the 2008-09 season.

We'll be behind in ticket packages, kids' packages and sales to the corporate community. This comes to light because the University of Cincinnati football ticket package plans and payments are due in early April.

Talk about dreaming..What planet are you on?? You talk as if we always had "ticket plans" and we are just a little late this year..Man you cannot be serious,so you must be jerking our chain!Don't get me wrong because I agree with your plan for SPC, except that SPC does not want to do what it needs to do to move the program forward and upward so you would be at odds with the school because they have not shown the desire to "run with the bigger dogs" for whatever the reasons..We are one of the few DivI schools that does not try to "be all that they can be" because they will not even try.

Maybe the problem is fans like you and I settling for less.

I just told you what the problem was and it is not the fans.

I really don't care who the next AD is as long as the person does not continue the Fortdham/Georgetown run of folks who come to JC to do a little charity work while either retiring or resume building. If it must be from within the Jesuit community of institutions how about someone from a mid major urban program like one of the Loyolas, Detroit or St.Joe's. These folks might understand facility, budget and PR issues but will come from programs with a fair degree of success (Detroit lately excepted). Energy is the #1 prerequisite for me. I know that things can be better than they now are, but the salad days of "68 are over due to ESPN, internet etc. Nonetheless better community and student body ID can be had. I found it interesting that when the women had their pack the house night vs Rider a substantial crowd was there including numerous school official types and staff who never go to games of either gender team. Whatever in school dynamic led to that night needs to be tapped into more regularly.
