Hence why I said “bad teams.” WCC will be no better or worse than in years past.

O/U 1.5 losses for the Zags in conference would be an interesting prop. I’d take the under.

I might take the under for total losses, pre-tournament.
Texas is a pretty good team and the Zags toyed with them last night. And Holmgren and Sallis are only going to get better as the season progresses.

They could not see past their nose. Replaced Wojo with another coach who could not win an NCAA game the last 6 years with more NBA draft picks.

Whoever had less than 2 games in the "people turning on Shaka pool" you win.

This board is hilarious sometimes. Can we just rename this thread to the "tinfoil hat pt2" thread?
Assume what I say should be in teal if it doesn't pass the smell test for you.

Looking at their conference results from the last four years, there is nothing wonky about them. They beat teams by at least 10 points in what seems like 98% of games.

It’s really unbelievable when you peel back the onion.

Right, this year the WCC is much better

You're second part is probably more accurate.  These people were against Shaka from the beginning.  They haven't turned.  Now, I also think he can sway some of them by getting decent wins in the upcoming years. 

It's also difficult for Moser "fans" (I was not one), to see him potentially having OU outperform MU this year.

Dramatic would be a mini meltdown over an expression.

And if by top team, you mean top 15. Yeah I’d bet on that.

Top 10? Better hope the Vandy kid is back fast.

They are light years behind Michigan, Gonzaga, Nova, UCLA and Kansas at the very least.

Mini meltdown? Drama queen like you write about.

Last night didn’t change my opinion of them whatsoever. Still an elite team.

4 top 45 KenPom teams.  Big East has 4 with SJU at 46.  Not saying it’s a better league by any means but it’s as good as it’s been in some time

And none of those teams are remotely close to a threat to Gonzaga. San Fran on the road will be their toughest game.

You are severely overrating USF. 4th at best behind GU, BYU, and SMC.

LMU should finish above them too. Stan inherited a hell of a roster and getting a Eli Scott to return was huge. Let’s see if Stan can coach. Santa Clara is much improved too,

I really think USF is the second best team in that conference. Bouyea and Shabaz are one of the best mid major tandems in the country.

I’m certainly not disputing the level of play in the Wcc beyond Gonzaga, but what I’m factoring in is how much better Gonzaga is than those teams. They’re still head and two sets of shoulders above the next best program. Two losses in conference would be a lot for them.

I think USF is 3rd.

Hopefully LMU busts out though.

A fun fact on Chris Beard. His lifetime coaching record against the Big East is 1-3. The one win came while at Arkansas Little Rock against Depaul. His lifetime record against Depaul is 1-1.

Purdue is pretty damn good.  If they don’t make a Final 4 this year, Matt Painter may never make one at Purdue

People have said that with his Etwuan More, JJ, and Hummel team. As well as the team a couple years ago. I think it's fair to said Painter won't get to the Final Four ever.

Is Beard just that good?

Shaka was that bad?

It does look like he had recruited some subpar players going by the what he brought along to MU.

False. As discussed here, some on the BOT wanted Moser but Scholl backed by Lovell wanted Shaka. Let the pros hire their choice.

Just glad we didn't get your choice, Wardle. He is 0-2 to start versus some cupcakes.
Sorry, but you have no idea who was my choice. Just your useless wild ass guess.  My choice was Shaka followed closely by Moser. So put that in your corn cob pipe and smoke it.
