Right on the money.

JD has shopped for the groceries and is in charge of preparing the meal.

We'll have the MAAC's lowest scoring front line.....ZERO half court offensive skills are possessed by ANY returning front line player. Hard to realistically see that translating into very many wins.

We have one player who would start on more than HALF the MAAC clubs at his position (Jenkins). No other Peacock starter (Gooding, PG, Bacon) would be more than a backup at his position on most every other MAAC club....and some would not see more than 5-6 minutes a game.

JD is darn lucky he got that extension, or he would likely be out of a job next April, based on three seasons of futility. I can't imagine the new AD appreciates being hamstrung, but it is what it is.

Fellow Peacock fans, mark it down. We are in for a long, cold winter....again. :-(

Our only hope for the future is that a few of the frosh are gems. I sure hope so!!!

Let's be honest. Outside of NJIT, St. Peter's might be the least attractive job in Division I. That's certainly the case in the northeast. Jersey City is about high school basketball. No one cares about college hoops. Heck, they couldn't even give tickets away a few years back.
It's the ultimate no-win situation.

That is currently the case, yes.

Does that mean you believe we should just accept five or six win seasons every year, and renew contracts of coaches producing those type of results?

Or, should accountability (after this year) play a role in the retention period of the SPC men's head coach?

The only reason the job could classified as such was the impact of Loughran. When your administration strangles a program, you can't give tickets away. You show your lack of reasoning by refusing to understand that fact. It is a new administration that has yet to prove anything but that has clearly gone in an opposite direction to Loughran. As far as location goes it is still in the hot spot of talent and any decent coach can be very successful here. That is what has been disappointing about Dunne. If Dunne doesn't cut it, watch the applicants that apply and we will not have impact of the one man selection committee of Bill Stein.

The biggest problem facing Elliot will be a program for generating a fan base. The first thing he should do is create a more active information center. Think about it, nothing has been confirmed on who is coming in this year on either the men's or woman's team.

As far as High School basketball there is only Bob Hurley and his tenure will also come to an end as he ages. Hudson County has no way been the hot spot you find in the other counties and you live strictly off a one man who recruits for his success. How many JC kids play at St As now. Back a few years ago, yes, but now few and far between. You build a successful college basketball team and you will attract fans.
