In that alternate universe did we become Southern Moron University?

So you have interviewed all the remarkable talent that did not arrive and confirmed this?

Starting to think our situation is similar to Uconn's. Ollie won with Calhoun's players. After that, the program declined at a rapid pace. Empty arena game in and game out. No motivation. Zero coaching. They probably waited 1 yr too many to fire him and now they have a great coach...but it's not a fast fix because of how far they let it fall. They are horrendous this year.

Hoping SMU doesn't do the same so we have to suffer for 2-3 more years.

Guess we will soon know if we get a new coach or should just cancel this embarrassing program.

The parallels between Uconn and us are there however they won the freakin national title and we almost won the NIT. Big difference.

I get that, but they held onto a coach far too long who had success with another coaches players. Now they are having to crawl out of a massive hole

Yes, all of them.

First, I implied the drop in talent on the roster is remarkable, not the talent level of the missed recruits. This staff hasn’t even tried to recruit remarkable talent over past two years, well except for Maxey which was a 3 stooges act with Jank playing Moe Howard.

To address your question. it is common sense that major D1 college basketball recruits would see 11 scholarship players instead of 13 as a great opportunity to play immediately. No recruit is going to turndown a school they like because the 12th and 13th guys on the roster are not scholarship level talents. 95% of the good teams in college basketball play 7-9 guys in the regular rotation. The back end of the roster only sees the floor in blowouts. .
