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?

Mick had multiple recruiting classes that were top 26, and top 31. So if Brannen is indeed a better recruiter then top 25 should be fine for him.

He has a brand new arena to work with and god facilities. He has zero excuses not to land a top 25 class

Jermaine Sanders and Shaq Thomas was one of his best ranked classes...nuff said.

For me the expectations arenít too different from mick. After 10 years, mick got this thing rolling. Aside from tournament wins. I donít expect it to take as long as mick because the situations are different but it could take 3 years to see if it is going in the right direction. I also think we could be in the tournament next year if Jarron comes back. At least be a bubble team. Bringing back one of the best players in the country never hurts.

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.
