Especially in our case, where money is taken from basketball left and right, and is not the fault or the lack of effort on the part of the staff. We have an institutional dilemma in Cajuns MBB because of the facility and money.
I do think he was in the right time and place to get those two. He still had to make the sale.
Unlike some here I do believe our talent is better than sixth. place. If it isn't then it's a coaching failure. Acquiring talent is a top three responsibility of any head coach.
Not sure I predicted anything, but I'd never be satisfied with anything not in top three from a six year coach

Note: If you consider RPI a valid evaluation, and most people do, this year is the second best year for our program since Marlin's arrival. [RPI his first 2 years were 216 and 195]
