    I really think..

    Everyone is secretly waiting/anticipating for next year. I know i am. Listening to radio host and guest that come on there, they have very little to say about this years team. All they talk about is what kind of team we will have next year and the transfers that will be playing next year. I am no way writing off this year. I will still watch every single game, but I think everyone is very anxious when it comes to the 2011-2012 mens basketball season. I just think some people are too nice and afraid to say that. Even listening to Fred on the Fred Hoiberg show, shows that he can't wait for next year. On his last one he said, "I can't even sleep just wondering what kind of plays i can run with those players next year."

    Re: I really think..

    Yeah, the possibilities of what next year can bring are exciting. But progress still needs to be made now with the guys on the team that will still be here next year. Scotty, Ejim, Godfrey, Palo and Railey badly need to establish a winning culture for themselves and the rest of the 11-12 roster. That means stealing a couple conference games from what's left of this year's schedule.

    Re: I really think..

    I am cautious about next year. Guess I have heard the wait till next year line one to many times. I have heard the this player is going to be a super stud one too many times.

    I think the big difference this time is other than McGee they're already here. I feel very confident about the next 2 years as long as RW sticks around. His departure will cause a void that we don't have a solution for.

    Do you forget all the hype around Lucca when he sat his year out?

    I never thought Lucca was going to be a dominate player for us. Even when he was sitting out that year.

    Lucca wasn't a top 20 recruit. Apples to oranges.

    Its not just that they are already here, its that some of them have already proved they can play at a high level. Allen and Babb have certainly already proven that. Booker at least has solid experience, and we keep hearing reports that he is progressing very well in practice. Combine that with solid returning role players in Railey, Godfrey, and Bubu, add in Thug Life Scottie (hopefully healthy ALL year), and another year of developement of Ejim and its fair to be pretty excited for next year. Oh, by the way I didn't even mention probably the most hyped player coming in White along with the other recruits.
