Agree completely … I’m sure Kim was aware the optics wouldn’t have been great if he had come in and run off most of the roster, hence all the SM posts about “The Great 8 who decided to stay.”The craziest thing is… instead of when DP took over and it was what if he kept all of Hewitts recruits… now I wish that only Oduro, Henry and XJ stayed and CKE could have brought in 5 more transfers/freshman what possibly could have been this season. We will be really good when we have a team full of CKE’s guys
This sounds harsher than I mean it to, but most of them stayed because Mason was by far their best option. Other than Oduro and maaaaybe Henry, none of those guys would play rotation minutes for an A-10 title contending team.
This program needs a major talent infusion if that’s the standard we’re trying to meet because 4 guys clearly isn’t enough.
