One and done will work once you get past the covid extra year of eligibility.

Not sure what one has to do with the other. It could be argued that one and done hasn’t really worked for a decade.

But Goodman wants clicks/views, so throw the "surprise" tag out there...

I mean, it's his job to generate interest, no?

Would be funny if he went to SLU, which would surprise no one. But Goodman wants clicks/views, so throw the "surprise" tag out there...

Goodman's phrasing sure feels like a troll.

They’re not preseason number one anymore after their recent losses.

They do have the top recruiting class coming in, though, and will still be good

One and done will work once you get past the covid extra year of eligibility.

Honest question...why would it? One and done really didn't work before the extra year. The two programs that really embraced it were Kentucky and Duke. The model accounted for two titles, 2012 UK and 2015 Duke. But 2012 UK had 3 of their top-6 scorers as returning players while for Duke it was 4 of the top-7. Since that Duke title, all 7 NC winners have been in the top 128 of D1 experience, per kenpom, so all of them were in the 64th percentile or better in terms of experience. 5/7 have been top-100 in experience.

kenpom's D1 experience metric goes back to 2007. 12/17 champions have been top-100 in experience, 14/17 have been top-128, and only 3 have been outside the top-200 (2011 UConn joins UK & Duke). Basically, there was a 5 year blip when one-and-done was able to win at the highest level, but that wasn't the case before that time and hasn't been the case since.

Experience wins, and it's been winning since before COVID was even a thing. The increasing usage of the transfer portal will only amplify that as high-powered teams are able to add players from lower levels that are more physically developed and basketball-experienced at the D1 level than one-and-done freshmen. One-and-done was a fad. Might it break through again once a decade or so? Maybe with a couple generational talents, but otherwise expect those teams to flame out, usually by the second weekend.

@GoodmanHoops
Former Indiana State star Robbie Avila will announce his decision today at 5 pm ET on @TheFieldOf68.

This one just may surprise some people.

Apparently this announcement coincides with the final day of Avila's SLU tour. So obviously he's going to SLU.

Experience has proven to be a huge factor in winning nattys. Put a bunch of 5 star one-and-doners on the court and, while they're very impressive as individual players, too often they fail to play as a team. Got to impress those NBA scouts, you know.

Although it was 10 years ago that UConn's experienced team took down Kentucky in the natty, 60-54, it still serves as an example that experience counts.

Nor sure how that helps him get clicks. By the time anyone reads the surprise part  they've already clicked and viewed.

Getting people to click onto his Fo68 announcement later today. Because it's a "surprise" even though it's what everyone expects.

Scheyer isn't half the coach Calipari is, and Calipari couldn't make that model work lately. If I were a betting man, I think Duke does not make the Elite Eight this upcoming season.

Depending on what they get from the portal. If they don’t do well there, I think the possibility of missing the tournament exists.

Speaking of Duke.  I was just drinking a Kolsch and eating schnitzel and spargl for lunch in Köln, Germany.  I was wearing my Marquette pullover and a group of 3 people on their way out said they were from North Carolina and Duke fans and sad to see Wojo get let go at Marquette.
I replied it worked out well for us as we ended up with Shaka Smart.

The crystal ball is never wrong.

Also, apparently only Goodman was in the dark and surprised by this one.
