Haven't had a top 25 recruiting class in what? 15+ years? But let's hold Brannen to that in his first 3....

Will someone with brain cells just lock this thread already?

cincycpaw will become famous soon enough
Mick Cronin 13 years.

2 regular season conference titles
2 conference tourney titles (took him 11 years)
9 NCAA tournaments
1 sweet 16
0 elite eights
0 final fours

6-9 ncaa record

I expect Brannen to beat that.

I can do this but will do for the next 13 years because lets be honest, that's what we were judging Mick on.

Next tourney Appearance: 2021 I think is reseansonable.
Top 25 recruiting classes in the next 13 years: 3
# of sweet 16's in the next 13 years: 4
# of elite 8's in the next 13 years: 2
# of tourney appearences in next 13 seasons: 8
Winning percentage over next 13 years: Who cares?
AAC Titles in next 13 years: 7
AAC Conference champs in next 13 years: 4
Players drafted: 3
5 Star players recruited: 2
Wining record vs Top 25 in 13 year period: Yes

Was looking through the recruiting classes on 247 and UC had one top 50 class in the last 5 years with 0 being top 25. Glad to see you're keeping your expectations realistic.

So let me get this straight Justin. Brannen has about 1/3 of the time to match, and in some cases, best Mick Cronin's accomplishments that took him 13 years to rack up?? If there's anything that has helped me move on from Mick Cronin and the ill effects of him leaving, it's attitudes like yours. So from the bottom of my heart I say thank you. I'm all in with CJB and the upcoming seasons. Let's f-cking go boys.

JoeRunner89 is an unknown quantity at this point
LMFAO wow. What type of fanbase could be upset with 9 straight tournament appearances, conference championships and two straight conf tournament championships. Then have the Gaul to actually act like his leaving is no big deal while venreating this nobody coach, and I'm not even trying to act like Cronin is some savant. The whole coaching staff, roster and recuriting has declined for a reason... And it's not all bc of four weeks. What recuit has Brannnen ever wooed look em up. Wherever he's been at bama, nku what recuits? I wont be happy with this hire until he proves me wrong

I'll go with 5 years as I think that is a pretty fair period of evaluation.
Next tourney Appearance: 2021-22 season.
Top 25 recruiting classes in the next 5 years: 0 (might get close next year because quantity effects class ranking as much as quality).
# of sweet 16's in the next 5 years 1
# of elite 8's: 0
# of tourney appearances in next 5 seasons: 3
Winning percentage over 5 next years: 70%
AAC Titles in next 5 years: 1

Players drafted: 2
5 Star players recruited: 0
Wining record vs Top 25 in 5 year period: no

I donít think itís easy making 9 straight tournaments but I can tell you the type of fan that can still have a problem with it. Out of those 9 years I think we have had one ďcontenderĒ. A team that has a reasonable expectation for a F4. If you use our seed itís the only team that was even supposed to make the sweet 16 if you were going by chalk.

When Huggins was here I felt like a contender about one out of every 2-3 years after he made the final 4. Just eeking into the tournament doesnít really get my gears pumping. Sure the ride is fun getting there and there is still a hope and prayer...but I donít want to kid myself too much.

Anyway, it is possible to appreciate both
