Exactly...they had talent.

And a lot of luck!

They'll be less talented this year, so maybe they'll be better.

No Virginia did not have the best talent, apparently they are just really good at craps.

And the regular season, in which it isn’t a crapshoot and they did very well last I checked.

Virginia had a lottery pick, another likely first round pick and Kyle Guy who will likely get drafted and I wouldn’t bet against him sticking in the NBA

Didn’t say they weren’t talented, I said they did they have the most talent.  The most talent doesn’t always win, in fact our own MU program has illustrations of this through the years.

I'm outraged that we are only a 9 seed after the undefeated season we are about to have.

It's a down year for the Big East.  We'll be lucky to be a 9 seed at 32-0.

This matches up pretty much with where my expectations are since the Hauser's announced they are leaving.

I still think we are a tournament team. 9 seed is probably about right. Maybe I'm a tad more optimistic, I think a 7 is probably possible, but not much higher.

Hopefully we can at least get one tourney win this year.

I think a repeat of 18-19 is possible.   24 wins, 5 seed.

So, you see us recovering from the loss of the H Boys.  I like it.

Players leave.  Marquette added Koby, Greg, and Jayce.

Definitely possible. But not my expectation.

I can see it but a different path to get there than last year.  Start like 20-7 but win 3 of the last 4.  23-8 heading to the BET but trending up instead.   That's my optimistic outlook if things go well.

We will have a much better backcourt this year. One of the best in the country. Guard play is very important. Our bigs provide what you need from bigs in today’s game (strength and size). We should be better defensively, maybe a bit worse on the boards but I think roughly the same, and worse shooting. If 2 of Sacar/Greg/Jamal/Koby/Brendan can shoot the three between 37%-40% and we don’t have any petitions being written behind one player’s back we will be a better team playing in a tougher conference than we were last year.

I am excited that we will have a roster of players who want to be Warriors.

As of May that seems to be the case. Hope it's still the case in March - then I'll share your excitement.
