Good.  Play the best to become the best.

Unless you're DePaul.

I agree. The last two off seasons have solidified the BE as a top tier basketball conference.

Disagree on DePaul. I don’t see a pitino type ever wanting to save that program, but it would be awesome to have them as an actual rival.

I think the first thing DePaul needs is, people in charge that care about the program beyond the coaching staff

DePaul and Butler will be in the basement. 

Nova, Seton Hall, and Providence will be the mid tier.  Down cycle for these schools after losing Wright, Willard, and Cooley.

UConn, Marquette, Xavier, and Creighton make up the current top tier.  St. John's and Georgetown are trying to get there.

DeP is a rival.  Just as when Wisconsin was garbage, they were still a rival, just as good or bad the Packers & Bears are rivals.

I could see PC in the basement. English needs to coach at a level he hasn't before in order to succeed.

Creighton could stink if McDermott leaves.

I think a transition to Darian DeVries could work out fine.  Would need a solid staff

The St. John’s home game has always been a stinker, but now it’ll be a really fun one to go to.  For that alone, I’m glad Pitino is in the conference.

I'm really enjoying the Coaching Carousel this year because MU not in any talk other than having a stud head coach, it is nice for a change after the darkness of the previous regime

The Stool Presidente beef with Jeff Goodman is hilarious and the blurbs of Slick Rick talking about Character are beyond hilariously ironic

I do feel for Providence fans losing a partner you thought was committed and would have you as long as you wanted them.......the business is real

Entirely possible for Providence to bottom out.  But DePaul is a special kind of bad.  I think Providence ends up where St. John's has been recently.  Bad to mediocre, maybe sneaking into the tourney once in awhile.

If McDermott leaves Creighton, that certainly brings them into the realm of uncertainty.  Would have to see who they hire.

Not sure where to post this but unsurprising news day 1 on the job. St. John’s will be a big time problem with pitino.

Big time problem? We'll see. It'll be interesting in a few years to see how his recruiting goes when he starts approaching retirement.

COULD? Sure.

WILL? I don't think so.  There is too much fan and admin investment at Creighton for them to totally fall off the map. They are the only show in town and put a lot of support and $$ into the program.  Worst case scenario is a MU-under-Wojo situation, which isn't great but also isn't total despair a la DePaul or Georgetown.

Portnoy is friends and does business with Mike Repole, founder of BodyArmor among other things, and he apparently said he's ready to throw his billionaire pocket book at St. John's to help them get and retain top talent. Repole is a huge Pitino guy apparently.

When Repole sold Vitamin Water for a gazillion dollars, he went all-in with his 🐎 racing pursuits. I wouldn’t doubt if friend and fellow horse owner Pitino has been in his ear all along. He will be the top NIL guy for St John’s, rank in the top ten nationally on NIL spending,  and St John’s will be back to major prominence as soon as 2024-25. Bet on it.

Dude, Lincoln might be 15 miles from a lot of places but Omaha is not one of them. Not even close.
