I think we have enough to worry about with MU. DePaul will be DePaul but does it really matter to an MU fan?

Butler has a large recruiting class coming in supplemented with a grad transfer. Will be interesting to see how these prospects develop .

Wojo has yet to solve the Creighton experiment. This doesn’t help.

Yeah, minus last year we have done well against Creighton.  Will that continue? Who knows but that was a bizarre statement.

Sorry, should have been more clear.
0-3 in the last 3, and CU looked great heading into the BEAST last spring (Didn’t have to play them thankfully) and will be very tough again this year.

I think we have enough to worry about with MU. DePaul will be DePaul but does it really matter to an MU fan?

The end of the JLP era will lead to big changes in the DePaul basketball program.

JLP extended Leitao's contract to 2023-24 but that means DePaul can figure when to set the buyout, as early as the end of 2021-22. A new athletic director will be under significant pressure to resuscitate the program and try to recover what is left of the fan base in Chicago.

Any tangible movement by DePaul out of the basement will put pressure on Georgetown and St. John's to avoid dropping down further. Villanova's success has bought the Big East some flexibility but the idea that the league's top three TV markets are at the bottom of the league is a net negative.

Leitao would be an idiot to agree to a buyout.

DePaul can fire him but still is contractually obligated to pay him.

DePaul has been making steady progress the last few years. The on court product has been much better and recruiting has been consistent. The Big East is a tough conference top to bottom , so upward traction for DePaul will take time. The addition of U -Conn to the league makes the hurdle even tougher for everyone.

DePaul's success will roughly track their ability to get fans into Wintrust. If they can get 6,000 to 7,000 consistent attendance ( with actual fans in the seats), they may start to  have some semblance of a home court advantage and their conference record could improve. Winning conference home games will help DePaul's greatly.

DePaul is 19-71 in Big East play over the past five seasons. In what world is that "steady progress the last few years"?

Well, they did go 15-75 in the 5 years before that so it is technically progress...

But also their ratings in KenPom have gone from being in the high 100s/low 200s to the 75-125 range under Leitao. Still good for the basement of the Big East but they may be closer to busting out

The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

In the 2019 Calendar year they went 23-14. That's actually a solid year. Granted it was a year not a season though. The recruiting's definitely gotten better they're my sleeper team in the BE this year.

I am mot going to actually look it up, but I am guessing their record against MU is significantly better than the 21.11% winning percentage that 19-71 calculates out to be.
