[quote="Craftsy21, post:6, topic:795"]Scary considering how very decent the conference is this year already.[/quote]
We better be worried as well. According to Kid ,Talor could leave early for the NBA as well.
I think several of the top juniors (Harris, Lucas, Turner) will be leaving after this season. It is amazing how strong that junior class was/is.
Last season people were talking about how good the Big 10 was going to be this season, but we are still probably just a 4/5 bid conference.
He won’t now, IMO, but he’s better than Lucas. I think many here agree on that, but let’s not go there. Let’s wait til he scorches him again.
But this whole thread is really demanding something which Ed doesn’t appear to be really addressing…improving frontcourt play and start getting some contributions. While it’s easier said than done, he better do something, e.g., change some players, change the offense, etc. To go into next year saying, “well, Brooks has such athelticism, if he’d only…” is just denial. It’s almost incomprehensible to me that this year’s crop hasn’t really improved the frontcourt. Edwards has, but he’s sort of a tweener. If you knew Cornley was leaving, maybe focus on the 4 spot. I guess Sasa was it, but looks like bad judgment on his talent. I also think Ed thought DJ, Brooks, AJ, etc., would step up. He should’ve known better. I didn’t expect it. I’m big on 1st impressions. You know, the Vladmir Horowitz scale.
