UConn spends $8M more/year on mens basketball, has higher NIL potential, and has won 6 titles in 25 years.

Besides that we're right there with them.
Then MU needs to step up their game. If 8 million more is accurate and more on NIL is  MU is not doing enough.

Thats why next year should be very interesting. There are so, so many questions and as you said it will be a high wire act, betting on the development of every player not named Kam, Joplin and Mitchell.


Yep. Same as two years ago.  Betting on Kam, Stevie, Kolek, Oso and Jop to develop.  It will be interesting.  If it works Shaka will really be on a roll.  Proof of concept part two on the way!

Shaka's interview today was one more piece of the puzzle.   He doesn't want to prioritize an outsider over an existing player.   He is quite proud of staying out of the portal.

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

Like Al always said, the best thing about freshman hopkers is that they become sophomoric hopkers.

Pitino really went all out at Louisville by providing hopkers for players and recruits.

Went into a YouTube wormhole last night and watched the last 10 minutes of the BE semi final against UConn. A majority of those 10 minutes were played by O-Max, Kam, Stevie, Chase and Ben. 4 of those players are still playing two years later and beat the eventual national champions that night. It’s crazy that this is happening either every thing else going on in CBB.

Not sure how accurate that is. Last year the program went to Italy and Hawaii, know they have a great training table and get all the shoes and clothes they want, fly charter, plus some NIL money, they can compete

LOL. He’s won two straight National Championships and 12 straight NCAA tournament games, all by double digits. So yeah, it’s kinda hard to criticize Hurley right now. His teams play as hard and as unselfishly as anyone’s. He’s not overly relying on the portal but he’s not ignoring either. So far he’s been the gold standard.

Also, consider that plenty of teams follow the same plan that UConn has, and they obviously do not have the same sort of success.

Bobby is successful not only because of the portal.  He's successful because of the totality of what he has built at UConn.

Impressive that Bobby Hurley was able to build UConn into a champion while coaching Arizona State.

IMO, we will not know how the full effect of NIL until the covid guys are done and any potential NIL rules being established. I 100% that Shaka's model, under current conditions, can have MU a year in and year out top 25 team and top 10 every few years. As my post the day after NC State, it really comes down to what Shaka and MU wants from the program and how they navigate the waters.

I think it would be very hard to be a top 10 program more years than not without using the portal to some degree. That said, I believe that this freshmen class is the first true incoming class that fits the Shaka playing style. I think last year Shaka had his hands tied to some degree because there was limited playing time available this past season. The incoming class looks to be his best on paper and has bigs that Shaka is very good developing or showcasing.

While I am a NIL fan, it is very hard to question Shaka'a plan to date. I think his system may look extremely smart post covid year and if rules are put on NIL, which I think will happen. If that happens, he will be 4-5 years into building a system and ahead of everyone that may need to adjust their NIL addiction.
