The Athletic's Big East players poll
« on: October 26, 2021, 03:55:14 PM »
Just 14 players polled, so sample size and all.
MU mentions:

I'd love to play with: Morsell, 2 votes (Gillespie led with 4)
Coach you'd like to play for: Shaka, 1 vote  (Cooley led with 4)
Favorite arena: Fiserv, 1 vote (MSG led with 6)
No MU mention for toughest to defend, toughest to score against or who will win the conference.

The Al McGuire Center received the same number of votes as Fiserv.

MU is essentially an expansion franchise this year - a few known commodities, but no one knows how they'll play together or perform, particularly opposing players.  I wouldn't expect MU to be high on many of these lists.

Hopefully we're the 2018 Vegas Golden Knights of college basketball.

14 players from an 11 team conference?  Sounds very scientific!

I believe SLU, Dayton, and Gonzaga got a rep.

I love the athletic and all cbb coverage I can get but that was the worst article I’ve ever read.  Useless when in 14 players responded.

That poll was worse than their GAA & F1 coverage.

One of the players was definitely from MU...not sure who else would have picked the Al for their favorite venue.

So, 1 vote for Fiserve, 1 vote for the Al, and only 1 vote for Shaka.

Uh oh!
