2023-2024 Expectations
« on: March 28, 2023, 10:42:42 AM »
I think it is safe to say that 2022-2023 exceeded all of our expectations, even for those of you that were optimistic.

Just looking for thoughts on how you will all determine, next year, whether Marquette improved from this year or not.

Is it strictly tournament based? Make a Sweet 16 and that's improvement?

Is it record based? Do better than 29-7 or win 30 games?

Given the expected improvement of the conference as a whole and the loaded Maui field I wouldn't be shocked even a little if Marquette loses more than 7 games...in fact I've come to realize how ridiculous it is to only lose 7 games in a College Hoops Season.

So what are your thoughts?

Expectation floor (with current roster) is:

Top 3 Big East

Play in conference finals

S16.

Assume what I say should be in teal if it doesn't pass the smell test for you.

Good floor. I’ll add top 25 all season, not that that means anything. I suppose we could aim for, at a minimum, top 50-60 offense and defense all season. All as a floor.

Hard to say until we know what the roster, and the rest of the league looks like.

They'll almost certainly lose more games. As you said, the Maui field is loaded and the conference looks to be stronger assuming SJU and Georgetown add through the portal.

That said, a Sweet 16 would be my minimum expectation assuming everyone returns.

We don’t know how the roster is going to shake out completely yet so it’s hard to put a final stamp on it. Though if it all holds together, I’m just going to simply say I expect a protected (top 4) seed again. I don’t want to put expectations on single elimination games but I think if MU continues to put themselves in that position, they’ll eventually break through. We might have to suffer a few more heartbreaks before it happens, but I just want the program to be relevant and in position to make a run next year.

I'm incredibly excited to see more growth.

It is just so tough to do better than 29-7 and double Big East Titles, especially in a Conference that is getting much better.

Honestly, just consistency. Stay top 25. Bench looks more ready for minutes when 2-3+ guys go pro at the end of next year.

Hope the defense doesn't bottom out if one of our forwards leaves now.

Yeah, that's a huge concern of mine. There's no one on the roster who can switch 1-4 like OMax can.

Improvement = 1 seed or 2 seed+ a trip to the Sweet 16 or further

Treading Water = 2 seed and second round exit or 3 or 4 seed that doesn't go further than Sweet 16

Going backwards = 5 seed or less and a team that doesn't make the Final 4

I do know, Newsie is right on you knowing ball.

Have an open roster spot.  Add a knock down perimeter shooter and everyone on the roster hit the weight room hard.  Todd Smith better earn that paycheck this offseason.

Deep tourney run.  Honestly, if the top 9 are all back, it's Final Four or bust next year.

You really think so? Not saying you're wrong but I always hesitate to throw that phrase around in College Hoops with it being single elim.

U Conn showed what is important and what is not this season.  Just get a bid and be ready to play your best ball of the season.  The Kolek injury showed how lucky MU was to have healthy players for the whole season.  It's crazy to think that MU can go another whole season without missing some key players.  I'd say success looks like top 3 conference finish, 4 seed or higher and round of 8.

I expect Marquette to be a very good team in 2023-24.

We don't even know who will be on our roster yet, so I'll just go with what Rico says until we do know.

Undefeated season.
Win all close games.
No close games.
5 All Americans.
Beat Lakers in secret scrimmage....by 30.
Sell out every home game.
No one goes to the MECCA bar .
No one buys Budweiser products.
3 more transfers in that are AA on other teams.
Everyone uses their NIL money to become walk ons.

Any less expectations are COLE.

Miss anything?
