Subject: Before this gets our of hand
In reply to: SPC Fan 's message, "Re: Let's turn this again" on Tuesday, September 09, 10:02:52pm

Let me be clear on this. The discussion one has had here is not intended as a commentary on the talent level of the team members but rather as a dialogue on whether our recruits were overhyped or assumed to be of a higher stature than they have thus far shown. No doubt some, most notably Jenkins and Bacon are at a level at or maybe even above that of their league counterparts. The back and forth here stems principally from my contention that, among JD's two classes, we may have been grading our entrants as being above what has thus far been seen.

Of course, from this the argument most naturally turns to whether or not we should be seeing better results and further, to the quality of the coaching. These questions will undoubtedly be raised, and legitimately so, during the course of the season, weighing heavily on what has gone into mix (talent), and what we seeing come out(results).

Again, let me be clear that talent here is not being discussed as an absolute but rather, in relative terms. In a low major conference such as the MAAC, there is little to distinguish between top and bottom other than by perhaps the addition/subtraction of one or two players, ones that undoubtedly pop up from an unforseen or beneficiary circumstance.
