If this year's team plays well, they'll be as good as last year's disappointment.  How that shakes out in W/L, who knows?  But at least it will look like an identity we can build on and recruit to.  

We won 19 last year and probably should have won 25.

I'd say if we won 16-18 that's considered a success this year. Anything above that gets the mayor a lifetime contract. Ha

Agree with all of this.  I think the win column will be a similar result.  Or, at least, the RPI, which is probably what we should be talking about.  

 

I think Fred's system is going to be a sometimes deadly advantage at PBA and likely get us run out of a few games where we go cold/get tired on the road.  The pace is going to look like the old Danny Nee teams.  If you look at his second year at ISU, that roster is probably a bit better than what he's working with this season.  The first season he had at ISU was an absolute miracle to go .500 since basically his entire roster had to sit out due to transfer rules and the rest of them from the year prior left.  Our team is a lot more talented than his .500 ISU squad was.  I'd be slightly surprised if we aren't in the tournament after next season given our transfers on the bench and whatever recruiting miracles he'll likely pull off during this season.

Agree there. If this teams ends the season over .500 we've done well.

If nothing else the pace should make things fun to watch, especially at the beginning.

 

Will our necks hurt?

Roby, Copeland, Palmer we’re without a doubt big ten bodies. You’re flat out wrong if you disagree with that.

 

Watson had serious big 10 experience.

 

Borchart would start on this years team. 

I was referring to in the paint as my response was to Dean who was referring to size when talking about Big 10 bodies, at least in my view.   This team has several big ten bodies if talking about the entire team.  More than last year.  Hopefully they don't get worse at shooting the ball during their time here.  Perhaps they even improve their strokes.
