“ consistent “ Top 25 team. No way.

When I see or hear “consistent top 25 team,” I’m think that means for multiple years.

Well, I wouldn't make that bet. But I wouldn't bet against it.

Looking forward to seeing if Pitino paints a masterpiece there ... or if he quits in a huff. Either way, it's a great story.

There are two things that are certainties with Coach Rick

1- he’s a brilliant basketball mind, a hall of fame coach

2- his patience and “trust in the process” so to speak aren’t what they need to be at this point in his life.

He also says what he wants when he wants, and takes a my way or the highway approach.

It’ll be a roller coaster no matter what, but the outbursts we’ve seen with this seasons failed last month lead me to believe he will probably step away and ride off into the sunset sooner rather than later.

Wouldn’t be in the least surprised if his take to that was “yea right” and he waltzed to another FF with the Johnnies though.

The LaRussa comp was a decent one- and this won’t be a popular take but Coach Tony had the Sox on a decent path despite some of his limitations.
Most Sox fans won’t agree, but look at where they are at now in comparison.
Everyone turned on Tony from day 1, and it was always destined to fail.

I'd bet on SJU a consistent top 25 team within the next 2 years.

Why?

Why?

Because nothing in Rick Pitino's coaching career suggests he'd be anything but great relative to the job he has.

I also kinda wonder if being 71 years old matters a little bit more when it comes to building a program versus continuing with one you already built. I guess we will have to see what next year brings.

UConn only a 2.5-point favorite. If forced to bet, I’d sure give the points. Creighton’s gonna hafta shoot lights out to stay in the game.

In terms of the conference standings and the battle for seeds for the NCAA tournament, it would be better for MU if Creighton would lose tonight.

However, I would at least like to see Creighton give UConn enough of a game to make them look less invincible.

Maybe the ideal result would be a tough game with UConn pulling out a narrow win.

I’ll take Creighton, and Baylor on the road.
Both games should be good watches

Nova beats Butler. Dont think itll be enough to move them to Q1

Will probably jump Texas who also failed to jump up again.

The BEast is a total guess as far as tournament teams after the top 3.

Much like Saturday, the threes are there to be had.  The Jays are cashing in on open looks.  Marquette did the opposite.  There’s hope for the rematch on 3/6.
