As much as I love Bearden, I wouldn't risk 1 year of Bearden for the risk of losing Segu.
We need to have a plan going forward.  Bearden will be great for 1 year, but after that, it'll be bare especially with the possibility of a coaching staff turnover.  Segu will want to get minutes now. 

Fun trip, but would be too expensive for the average fan like myself.
Maybe in 20 years for me.  I can freely take a trip to Hawaii to watch a football game.

I'm actually interested in this, not so much where we are headed but what seed we get.
We need to move up to 9 or 10 next year.  I don't want to be putting it to chance on winning the MAC tourney.

What a great listen.
What I really love is his honesty.  He's honest at half time on national TV.  He's honest in interviews. 
We have a real gem.
His dialogue on race is so good and really funny.  The two coaches talking about race in a good way, but it's honest dialogue.  They're trying not to say something that can be taken wrong and that fine line is what's so funny.

He's still friends with Danny White.  Oh oh, I hope UCF keeps winning.  On Danny White.  What a bold move by him.  He just went with his gut and led.  He left us a great gift in Oats and Jack.  Hopefully, Leipold is another gem.  We'll find out this year.

I think you might be right about Jeenathan Williams becoming that 6th man.  Mainly because if we go with a 2PG lineup as I suggested, then Massingburg  or Harris would need to goto the bench.  I don't think that's happening.

So our lineup will probably look like this.

PG - Jordan, Caruthers, Hamlet or Segu (I would think it matters which 2 point guards go well together, which one can score, play off the ball, defend)
PG - Jordan, Caruthers, Hamlet or Segu
SG - Massingburg
SF - Jeremy Harris
F - Perkins

Then as backups:
SG - Jayvon Graves (he needs to play), Reese (He might surprise, but we're so deep at guard)
SF - Jeenathan Williams (Maybe he gets 6th man minutes and plays a lot)
F - McRae and Bertram

Man, we're pretty stacked.  How do we get minutes for everyone.

I think Jeenathan will need to start at forward.
Not sure what his exact height is, different places have it ranging from 6-4 to 6-6.
So if he's 6-5, he's a undersized for Power Forward.  But he looks to be built pretty well up top.

I think we go with 2PGs playing all the time.  If not, we need to redshirt and save Segu.  Redshirting rarely happens so I doubt it.
So our lineup might be

Maybe Bertram plays well.  He was a pretty decent recruit when we signed him.

Next year, if it comes to it, we should have a succession plan.

We should go with the hot coach from Loyola Chicago.  Jim Whitesell.  We're fortunate to have a former D1 head coach on our staff.  He's the most logical choice. 

We should also elevate Coach Hogson an Associate Head Coach similar to coach Whitesell's role now.

Honestly, it doesn’t take long to rebuild in basketball. Calipari and now Duke somewhat do it every year. If you can recruit, you can win right away.

Good luck all.
Kids science fair wins out for me.
Enjoy the Sweet 16.
Looking forward to another shocker.

After watching PJ Washington (Kentucky 6'7") dominate the paint last night against KState, I think we can employ Jeenathan Williams in a similar role as the power forward next year.  Jeremy Harris can slide to the 3 and Perkins at the 5.  That's pretty good size for any team.

Let's also hope McCrae can put on some weight.

From this it looks like women’s bball do not get paid extra for NCAA.

So it is up to increasing attendance next year for women to increase revenue. I highly doubt FLJ gets a big raise. Maybe a small one. But I also doubt other schools will pay much more.

Ok I just read an article and it wasn’t zone that kstate used but it was man but with helping. So it almost looked like zone because there were always multiple guys around the ball.

Regardless, we need to improve our defense next year. Maybe not rely so much on just one on one matchups. It will work in the MAC since our guys usually have a physical advantage but we will need to come up with a help scheme or zone to disrupt the action.

I’m more convinced now that we employed the wrong strategy against Kentucky. We should have gone zone. Not sure what that defense I just saw from kstate. It was some type of hybrid man zone. It worked against Kentucky. They totally shut down SGA and Diallo.

Next year please practice a little zone. We need to use it from time to time.

Wow Kentucky goes down. Shai GA has a horrible game. The team played like freshmen.

Does anyone know if we actually made money by going to the tourney and this year winning 1 game.  I think we share the revenue with the rest of the MAC, but I would think we also get more of it. 

Also on the women.  Do we actually make money with going to the sweet sixteen?  I would think the women actually will bring in revenue this year.  2 big wins in the tourney and going to the sweet sixteen.  Anyone know the numbers?
