Kolek is going to be one of those guys that opponents will think he played at MU for 10 years and that is what makes him special. This is kid has the shortest memory out there, sees the floor at a very level and is a very smart defender, that is recipe for success. He is quickly becoming one of favorite players over the past twenty years.
I agree Goose. And that 20 years covers lots of players

Agreed.  He will be one of those guys other teams lament “he’s still there?”.

Perhaps this is why Ewing can’t keep any good players around longer than two years.

JTIII, on the other hand, liked the grit showed by the guys at the end. Down 32 and playing against the B-team, they could have just given up, BUT DIDN'T.

Plenty of other posters on record in that thread proclaiming “they will routinely score in the 50’s”

They’re in a really bad spot now.

When Mullin stepped down, you could tell he was not remotely into it all and just wanted to step aside. I don’t get that feeling with Ewing and he is running/has run the program into the ground.

Bad roster construction/retention.  Didn’t have great recruiters at the beginning of his tenure and he’s been chasing ever since.  I think he can coach fine but building a roster hasn’t been a strong suit.

Georgetown needs a fresh start and someone with a lot of connections in the metro D.C. area.

Kolek’s court vision is unnatural!   And the accuracy of his very difficult passes is stratospheric - amazing vision and touch.   And loved he finished at the rim a few times.  Georgetown was waiting for the outlet pass and he finished at the rim.   That was a thing of beauty!

He's got a title and a .500 record over four years. That's hardly "running the program into the ground". They're not DePaul.

He'll be gone soon but it's not the worst effort we've seen from a coach in the Big East.

Haha, exactly what I thought when the response was “well shucks thanks for actually pointing out that I was correct cause they did score on the 50s ya know).  95% of trams will have a few games a year in the 59s so if his prediction was that they would at least a couple times that’s really going out on a limb.

Ahh the old Wojo argument of “500 record!” Throw out the MEAC they beat up on every year and the record changes drastically. He’s never been over 500 in conference and I’m sure his overall record against real opponents isn’t that great either.

There's one other one.  J5 said what you quoted and another agreed with him.  Tower and I said there would be games in 50s, which ended up being correct. It wasn't that bold of a prediction, we had three of those last season.

But J5 was pretty pessimistic so troll away! It makes me chuckle every time
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.

'Big John is rolling over in his grave'.

He's right when he says Big John is rolling over in his grave. But he's wrong when he infers the reason for it is because of the players.

Georgetown was below .500 in 2016 and 2017 and fired John Thompson III as a result.  It has had only one season above .500 since.

More concerning, perhaps: averaging 5,650 a game in a 20,500 seat arena. (One of those games was free admission.) A decade ago, it was 11,283 per game.

get the best kid each year from DeMatha, and the best kid in the DC area that’s not on DeMatha and he’d have some ballers

Even taking the bad weather into consideration, the GT/MU game was on a Friday evening and the huge number of empty seats really surprised me. I think the records for all coaches should be evaluated after taking the cupcakes out of the win totals. A .500 record is nothing to brag about, especially when it includes maybe 5 cupcake wins. Every coach loses players to tranfer but Akinjo, McClung and Wahab to name just a few? Wow! I once thought it would be great to have an alumnus as coach but after the Mullin fiasco and Ewing, maybe Jordan as well just not getting it done has convinced me that alumni are high risk because it is very difficult to part ways unless they choose to do so when it simply is not working. Do you think Ewing will resign, maybe go back to an NBA team as an assistant? Is there any way he gets fired? I really doubt it. Your thoughts on how all this might play out?

Georgetown under performance hurts the Big East. They had a very well recognized brand for a long time.
