The problem is we have a coach who can't close the deal on the good players. He would make a poor car salesman. We were lucky to get the Big E who was under the radar. Without him we could rack up two more losing seasons. Until the administration recognizes this flaw we will continue to have the same O same O. I'll take my chances with a new coach.

Remember Marty said he wanted a juco and a freshman to close out the year.
And when Marty Hill said yes,Marty could have pulled the offer on the other 2 jucos.

Pathetic - what quality Freshman is remaining that is unsigned? Maybe we're targeting a D1 transfer at this point....either way, no impact this year. Man, our post game is going to be weak. I guess we'll see a lot of 4 guard lineups. I sure hope Traore can play a lot of minutes, otherwise a great athletic big man in Adheke will be wasted as a screen first 5 man.

I'm pretty sure that Vance being from Chicago, the 2 hr. drive to Milwaukee factored well into his decision.

Bingo. I am disappointed as anyone but there are just so many factors which play into recruiting. The completion is unreal. I still love the kids we have signed .

It's not about who we have recruited, it's about the glaring hole in the middle.
