Greg is the only weakness, but the older he gets the stronger he should play. 

Greg is slight of build but I wouldn't consider him a defensive weakness. He's got dem Stretch Armstrong arms and looked the part of a capable defender despite the bum wheel last season. I think the weakest link defensively is Symir, looked completely lost at times last season. But he was a freshman and freshman often look lost on defense. I have hope for him yet.

Time will tell, but I see at the end of games Akanno, Koby and Carton being stoppers at the end of games

I'm loving some of the optimism here. I know I'm psyched to see our guys play.

If Carton and Garcia live up to their billing, I think we have some nice role-player pieces around them. We'll see!

Looks like Katz’s Wisky bias as come out.  MU has to many question marks for this season with 5 new players.

Katz bracket

https://mobile.twitter.com/marchmadness/status/1311021871954096144/photo/1

Not too many issues with his bracket, but do not understand the love for Providence (8 seed), Boise State (10 Seed), or St. John's (11 seed).

Providence loses 3/5 starters, their top 2 bench players, and replaces all that with one good transfer in Jared Bynum and a skinny big man from the Atlantic Sun Conference in Noah Horchler. Duke is a great player. Watson is talented on offense. But I'll be very impressed if Providence makes the dance this season.

St. John's loses their two best players from last season and a third starter and replaces them with a couple of JUCOs (#6 and #14 per top JucoRecruiting) and warm body grad transfer. #6 and #14 may sound like high numbers, but the players with those rankings last season ended up being the 5th starter for KenPom #102 Ole Miss, and averaging 12 minutes a game for Georgetown before transferring. Rasheem Dunn will likely lead them in scoring this season, and his eFG% last year was worse than Koby's (40.5%). I do think St. John's will be better than last season, but they'll need another year of seasoning before making the dance IMHO.

Boise State finished outside the top 80 in KenPom this season and loses 6/9 of their rotation players from last season. They'll be nowhere near the tournament.

Agree. Like that Katz has 6 Big East Teams in. But like MU and MU’s talent over Prov and SJU.

What's interesting is the amount of volatility within both the Katz brackets and the overall assessment of the college basketball scene for the coming year.

I'll say it again -- we're better than what most people think we are. How good we become depends on how well Coach Wojo coaches our team up in the fall. If we play together and quickly learn reasonable defense, we're going places.

If it's Carton and Garcia show, with everyone else as props, we're doomed.

This year we will have what will look like a typical Ed Cooley Providence team. That is one very talented player ( Carton)  surrounded by a whole lot of seasoned hard working types. I generally don't expect much from freshman, hope by the end of conference season they are able to be contributors. We have enough talent to compete with the rest of the conference, execution is the key as you point out.
