With a healthy Jarrey SMU probably has 4-5 more wins this year-a conservative estimate. Its ludicrous but so much fun for some of you to pretend that it doesn't matter. Losing Jarrey and Shake last year and Jarrey returning at half his potential this year and then injured again in the last 2 years of the scholarship limitations has been a hard road. You guys make fun about people outside the program acknowledging the "excuses"-maybe the ones who have lost perspective are YOU


I am with you 100%, but who has he recruited to replace Shake and Jarrey? A healthy full roster next season is still worse than the team on the floor right now that is without Foster!


xc, you should know. how is the new Men's tennis coach doing?

Still too early to tell on the men's tennis coach but we are 7-3 so far. I like the hire as he is from USC, which is a powerhouse in college tennis and we have similar institutions.

Chen is a rock star. A five minute conversation with him, and youll think man, can this guy coach basketball?

His first move upon getting hired was to get on a plane to NY to reach out to an SMU legacy recruit. Landed him, engaged the parents again.

Gets it, high energy, has a vision.

Sounds like another good coaching hire.
