You'd see an AP poll this decade where DePaul was receiving votes and MU had zero? Read it and weep: https://apnews.com/APTop25CollegeBasketballPoll

Kudos to them for taking care of business at Minnesota.  If they can beat Texas Tech on Wednesday, they’ll have a real shot at the Top 25.  Also, Butler with a strong showing in the early season.  Butler and Xavier don’t seem to have missed a beat despite their coaches leaving.  Maybe rebuilds don’t need to last five years and counting, hey?

We were a 5 seed last year...

Generally how it goes when you hire former assistants.  If Stan were to be the new HC tomorrow, I think he'd have a good chance of keeping the entire incoming class.  Rebuilds are too broad of a spectrum to say that they should all happen fast.  Each one is unique and should be treated as such.

Maybe we should wait until there are college games played after 12/1 to decide we’re worse than Butler and Xavier.

Depends on the talent left on the team too.

Probably could have stopped at the title.

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

What rebuilds? Jordan took over a team coming off a 4 seed. Steele took over a team coming off a 1 seed.

Also, you may want to wait until they play some real competition before crowning them. Maybe OT victories over Missouri and Connecticut and wins against Minnesota and Stanford do it for you but I need some more convincing. I think we finish ahead of both when all is said and done though I think Xavier will be right there with us.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

Once Depaul starts playing Big east games against teams that have seen them, and know them, they will come back down to earth. This is a mirage...nothing more. For DePaul fans(both of them), it's like winning the national title, I get that. Texas Tech will take care of them and everyone will stop talking about them.

I want this quote to serve as a reminder to the vast majority of scoop posters in regards to the MU BB program.

Not so sure on that... TTech lost to Iowa (who DePaul beat) and lost to a Creighton team playing around DePaul's level (or maybe a bit worse honestly) this year. Add the fact that it's at DePaul's gym and it will likely have the most juice to a home game in a decade, I could easily see DePaul pull off the upset.

DePaul won seven Big East games last year and I suspect they will win more than seven this year.

Same system, hired existing coach.  Huge difference from going outside.  What did he inherit vs Wojo?  Etc etc

If we win out non-conference (which I think we will), are there really going to be people upset with that? I’ll take that all day...Loss to a top 5 team and a loss on the road with wins vs. Purdue, Davidson (N), USC (N) and Kansas State (A). Pretty good non conference resume...

We were a 5 seed last year...
And were the consensus most over-seeded team in the tournament and blew the conference and got destroyed by a mid-major Murray State.

It would be disingenuous not to include all the facts.

It's all going according to plan, since we have exactly as many votes as SLU
Nobody says "It's only a game" when their team is winning.

The facts are that even with the collapse, team falling apart, etc. that we were a 5 seed in the NCAA tournament last year.

Alright..... hang the banner?  I really couldn't care less given the taste left in my mouth thinking about last season.
