Are you going to say but he was actually good when mason transfers to Toledo or where. Seems hypocritical considering you judged Cronin recruits by where they transferred to.
Big difference. Cronin picked LoJo, Nsoseme, etc to fit his system. He probably would have done pretty well with them. Likewise, the Madsens and Saunders probably would have worked out in Brannen's system. All of that goes out the window when a player transfers. He's starting over, and competing with a thousand other players looking for the right fit.

If we brought in the right 5 and a stud wing...I thought it was shaping up pretty good. But what is the point now in wondering? It fell apart. Gotta pick up the pieces and move forward.
Exactly, why keep crying about it. Itís over. They left, and brannen isnít getting fired. It sucks. We get it

He grew a lot from freshman through senior. But yes I agree, but I donít think him being completely unranked is accurate

If we can manage to land Toney I would think we are on our way to stop the bleeding. Not sure who we are looking for at the athletic 5 spot but that is something I would like to get out of the way soon.

If we can get those two things...I can breathe easier. The rest is icing if we can hit a home run on those two. I will settle for a double and a HR

Thereís enough talent out there to put together a good team. Iím not sure we can get any of them, but Iíve seen crazier things happen. I think we could very easily have a better team next year but thatís not hard considering we were around 120ish

Itís enough talent to put together a top 10 team. In all reality this is coaches dream and some players nightmares. If I was coach Iíll love be able have this many available players
