He seems to go with guys he has known for a long time whenever possible, so, I suspect the building with young guys might also include people he recruited hard, they went somewhere else but end up in the portal a year or two later.
i am thinking that we will see one a year of those guys join GMU via the transfer portal

The closer and closer our season gets the more worried I get. First time in years we can actually have expectations for the team!
That makes perfect sense and, yet, for some weird reason I don't really have any concrete expectations for the team this year. I'll know at the end of the year if I think we progressed enough. I expect them to be better and progressing on the path to CKE's standards, I just can't pin down before the year what, exactly, that is.

Now, since this is the "hopes, dreams, wishes..." thread, and CKE has stated not making the tourney is a disappointment, I have high hopes this senior laden team can deliver us from our 12 year tournament purgatory.

Hope the team delivers with the amount of experience we have.

I feel ya. My solution is to keep a continuous stream of bourbon into my blood during the day - then I get happy and optimistic and just prepare to scream shout and swear during the game. Fantasizing about burning down your opponents campus with artillery and an M1 Abrams SEP2 also keeps me balanced. You would be surprised what that does for your mood.

My god....I love how you prepare yourself. You're like a general ready to support your troops and bring hell to anyone who tries to tear them down or do them harm.

I often too fantasize about burning down VCU's campus every month, but keep telling myself their crack head, progressive students will do that to themselves in due time.

The "mystery team" that will be either a bracket disruptor or a tournament disaster​


Lunardi: Dayton will begin its 2020 COVID revenge tour with point guard Malachi Smith sidelined by an ankle injury. Not great, but better than cancelling the NCAA tournament on a presumptive No. 1 seed and best team in school history. Smith will be back, center DaRon Holmes II will do a credible Obi Toppin imitation and the Flyers will not be "first team out" of the 2023 field. This season, the "D" in Dayton stands for disruptor.

Borzello: Auburn was one of the nation's big surprises last season, winning the SEC and even rising all the way to No. 1 in the polls in late January. The Tigers have the talent to compete near the top of the league again -- but also have a backcourt that was highly inconsistent and struggled with decision-making last season. And now they don't have Jabari Smith and Walker Kessler to bail them out. Can Wendell Green Jr. and K.D. Johnson take a step forward? Can Yohan Traore and Johni Broome replace the outgoing first-rounders?

Well thanks - I don't clean my guns while I drink or watch the game. And yes - When I think of VCU, I fantasize about driving an Abrams Tank through Richmond.

Ok, I do know you guys are kidding around. But let’s tone down the fantasies of storming Richmond. Thank you!

Boston College is currently in a stinker down to Detroit Mercy on ESPN+ right now… third best team in OOC. Gotta hope they win this game right ?
