    Only data point that matters is win-loss record, IMHO. The rest is just conversation.

    I never argued otherwise. It is what it is.

    Yeah, but think about it another way. Two seasons ago, we had 4 star Reuter, 3 star Mar, 3 star AJ, and 3 star Hartwell all on the team. That would put us tied for UMass essentially for recruit rankings. Were we a better team two seasons ago than what we have going into this season?

    Reuter wasn't a 4 star on Rivals or 24/7 to my knowledge but carry on

    Age has a lot to do with that. 2 of those 4 flopped I’ll give you that, but now we are going into AJs senior and 3 star hartwells junior season with probably one of the most talented teams Paulsen has had, so yeah we weren’t better then but the counterpart of the argument is they were higher ranked and developed and we are much better now.

    Super skilled. He just lost all of the athleticism he had when he was a high school senior by the time he got to us. But maybe he never leaves UVA if he could still move laterally and explode to the rim.

    As for our current crop of 2 star recruits: Polite, Kolek, Henry, Frazier, Gadsden, Johnson, Oduro, Haidara -- we may or may not get a chance to see if Paulsen's recruiting has "gotten better" over the last two to three years or not.

    True, but regardless he was a pretty highly regarded recruit.

    all I know is he was horrible for the year he played for the only college team I care about. so that is what I judge
