well, i didn't use the word "hot". roll your eyes, syh, whatever---but, miss another tourney and it has to be a little concerning. would have to believe it won't make that recruiting trail any easier. that is what it is all about if your expectations are to consistently be in the race for a title or ncaa bid. as things stand at the moment, tough time breaking that top 60 when it comes to recruiting talent. hoping that changes. i believe i am correct in stating that one of coach williams biggest concerns has been getting that consistent offensive threat.
btw, i fully expect this squad to make the ncaa next season. as long as the team stays relatively healthy, and, especially if they get production from 1or 2 of the incoming class. no doubt it's going to be another season of chasing maryland by the rest of the big ten-----and, may add ohio state to the fray. expect them to finish 1-2 next season.
