Loyal, you may very well be right although I think (hope) that we'll be better than that. Won't know what things look like for a few months.

Don't want to sound like sour grapes but IMO Sutton's addition would not have been as great as many fanticized. No doubt he would have started. No doubt he would have given us a dimension we haven't had. No doubt not having him is a big, big loss. On the other hand the key word was always his potential. Recently a list of NYS All-state teams was announced ( think there were twelve or so teams) and Sutton's name was nowhere to be found. Also check out the small list of school's who actually offered. However he performed at the Elite camp no upgraded offers were given. So I'm a little realistic about the meaning of his loss. Perhaps question marks about his injury caused Sutton to be overlooked but I've seen some of the players on that list and ... let's just say he wasn't there.

As I said, don't want this to be an excuse for losing him. He would have been an impact player for us but not the second coming of Bill Russell. On the positive side (if there is one), atleast it gives JD a chance to maneuver. If, as reported, Conley wants to come and if there are potential issues with our APR next year then JD has his options reopened. Sort of a minor positive spin but until Sutton decided our hands were tied. Don't know what Conley's status is but understand that the staff feels (rightly or wrongly) that Darius is an impact player also. For now, this is where posters should concentrate. No longer on Sutton but on Conley's status.

Oldtimer - Good take and summary of the new landscape. Guess I'll have to sit back and draw on sources and contacts from someone "in the know", to learn of where John's fallback strategy may now take us.
