    How Long Until We are Good?

    By good I mean 20 win seasons and NCAA births. Personally, I'm thinking 2 years at the earliest. We really need a PG and some stout post defesne. While I believe the recruits comming in have the potential, they're still just freshman. I doubt Garrett, Brackins or anyone else will be able to step in right away and dominate. This team is going to need at least two years to develope.

    WJ and Dodie's senior year with the incoming class having some experience and perhaps a few more strong recruits that have played a year in the big XII. I'll be dissappointed if we're not a very strong team in 3 years.

    We need one good guard who makes everyone on the team better. Right now, we don't have that player.

    Re: How Long Until We are Good?

    We should be good in two seasons. By then we'll have WJ and Dodie as juniors, Brackins and Garrett as sophomores.... and should have other players ready to step up. I am expecting good things to happen then.

    Re: How Long Until We are Good?

    I think the piece we are missing is a center that can seriously alter shots, a la Cato. Even someone as lame as Erik Hansen can drastically improve a team if they can make opposing guards think twice about coming into the lane.

    Re: How Long Until We are Good?

    I went with two year. I still think we could really use a BIG man at center and a solid PG. I figure within two year we should be able to start and get the recruits that best fit what we are trying to do.

    If we get guys coming in who play 3/4 as hard and skilled as Wesley Johnson, our winning will happen sooner.

    Completely agree.

    That's a good point too. This team has shown some amazing heart in most of their games this year. No matter what level of talent we get I hope that can stay the same.

    Re: How Long Until We are Good?

    I'm being optimistic and saying next year but 2 years may be more realistic. I guess I see this sort of like the year before we had the Elite 8 team (not saying next year will be Elite 8 though!) but we had guys playing roles they weren't being used properly at with Mike Nurse playing PG sort of like Taylor has had to and a promising young freshman in Fizer where we have Wesley but at a different position. We added a few key pieces in Tinsley and Horton and everyone was able to slide into their better roles and magic all the sudden happened.

    Obviously Wesley is not a dominating post player like Fizer and Garrett is not an expirienced Juco transfer like Tinsley but moving Taylor to a true SG role, Wesley to SF and add some depth in the post with Brackins and Thompson this team is deeper and bigger all the sudden and the only graduation loss we really have is Gray. I would hope we could at least challenge for a NCAA berth next season.

    Re: How Long Until We are Good?

    Personally I think that we will be very deep next year and will go very far with our depth and having more experience.... Craig will bring us hope next year and hopefully is very intense, because I think that is what we are missing on this years squad, INTENSITY!!

    Re: How Long Until We are Good?

    I put next year also, it's optimistic but we are only a couple of players short of becoming a very competitive team. Wesley, at SF will really help and Taylor at SG will also. I don't know if we'll get 20 wins, but I think an NCAA berth isn't out of the question.

    Re: How Long Until We are Good?

    While next year is possible...I think those of you who think next year are also the ones who felt we had a shot at 8-8 or higher in conference this year.

    Next year should be NIT
    Year after will be NCAA bubble
    Wesley senior year solid NCAA team

    Re: How Long Until We are Good?

    This isn't football, so I think we definitely can be good in 2 years. Yes it helps the longer the program has, but you can turn it around in 1 year. Look at Ohio State. 1 or 2 really solid players can turn a whole team around.
