Next year thoughts

Recommended Posts

The best team isn't necessarily the best set of individual players.  They have to complement each other.  Every year we see teams implode that have great talent but don't play well together. Virginia and Texas Tech were not the most talented teams in basketball this year but they did have each other's back.

You are delusional. What talent out there that we can get will play over French and Goodwin? We have no other forwards 

Reread my posts.  He dove off the deep end.

He?

You literally called a team of Goodwin, Thatch, Hargrove, Yuri, Perkins and Lewis is a "mediocre local team"!!!!

Damn some on this board has gotten spoiled rotten with Ford. Please remember that before Ford, we havent had a top 100 or even a 4* player for years. Only one close was Ash from Villanova. 

I know you're not excited with that roster, but I for one think this a deeply underrated team. If the pieces go together, this team under the leadership of Goodwin and French with "#teamblue teammates like Hargrove and Thatch all in, we can have a super cohesive team next year. Only questionable piece is Perkins IMO

Reading comprehension isn't your strong suit, is it.  I don't really care to re-explain this to you.

In recruiting there are tradeoffs. 

 two freshmen over 2 juniors that stuck with this program after everything is a slap in the face. Doing stuff like that gives you a bad rep. Why do you think Marquette just lost 2 of the top 100 ncaa players? 

Wojo is gone after Howard leaves and is having difficulty recruiting after being a top 10 team this year. 

This attitude is literally what is collapsing Marquette right now 

As much as I want to disagree with you (I’m generally team “always recruit over everyone”), another component of the Hauser fiasco beyond the Sam/Markus feud apparently had to do with the recruitment of Tyler Hierro. He de-committed from Wisconsin and Wojo recruited him hard, much to the chagrin of the Hauser clan. Wound up at UK obviously, but that was the beginning of the end for the Hausers, if you will. 

That said, I think these kinds of problems can be ameliorated through honest discussions with your players. Communication is arguably the most important part of any relationship, and it seems like Wojo failed to communicate effectively with two of his most important players. Can’t lose the locker room like he did, ultimately it falls on him for not smoothing over the Sam/Markus issue and compounding that problem by recruiting a player (Hierro) that 1/6 of his locker room wanted nothing to do with.
