Two things I see - first and foremost, the "stink" of the last five years has really been the stink of the last two years. I refuse to accept the notion that entirety of the Saul era has been bad, because it has not. Or course 3/5 of it has, which is why these conversations are being had to begin with.

Second, it's impossible to predict what will happen with the next coach, but one thing is certain: Every single player will reconsider whether they're going to stay. A few of them are good enough to take a step up if they want. Others might go closer to home, or just not like the new staff. But I can almost guarantee that everyone that isn't graduating, and the 2-3 new recruits are going to consider their options. And they should. Which is why I hope whoever the next guy is, he's really, really good at selling his program. If he can keep McDay, and 5-6 of the current roster, at least there's a starting point. Add a couple JUCO players, or a grad transfer, and at least there's a roster to compete with. Remember Groce's first year when Tommy is playing the 4 sometimes because there were injuries/suspensions and only 10 scholarship players? That's what I'm hoping the next coach avoids. Time will tell.

It hasnít been all stinky, there have been a few good moments and a few descents stretches, but no real stability. We faked being invited and rejecting a cbi invite, when we had former conference players on the selection committee. I donít think that we have had three wins in Cleveland after inheriting two nba talents. We have been a top 200-250 program after being given tc and Jaaron. Saul's best recruit (Ryan Taylor) transferred out.


"Faked" being invited to the CBI? Ooohhh boy. You're back to 'old allen' form again I see.

Nobody despises to lose more than I do. That's got me into trouble over the years, but it also made a man of mediocre ability into a pretty good coach. Woody Hayes
