I'll make sure to check in and see if your definition of "good basketball" holds weight in a few months.MRJ
Please define bad basketball,if loosing is your definition, ok ,but I believe you can play good BB and still loose
THIS TEAM WILL PLAY GOOD BB,whether they can win enough to please you is doubtful.
This is why I see the current team as a 10 win team. We just don’t have the talent, that’s okay. I just want to see if this staff can develop these kids.On paper, when comparing rosters of other scheduled opponents, I have them at 6 or 7 wins at most...In the Big Ten finding a single win would be a moral victory, the matchups overall will be one-sided and not in the Gophers favor...I think the team on a given night will play beyond their ability directed by the leadership of coach Jonson...Hunch also these kids will play their heart out no matter what the win/loss record is in the season.....but... , most of all they need your support....
The gophers have played 24 seasons since the final four run. In the time they have 3 conference records above 500, 3 conference records at 500, and 18 conference records under 500.goals and expectations are two different things.
Expecations: Don't finish last as that's always unacceptable. The guys who have eligibility remaining after this year better improve as the season goes along and look like real rotation players for a good team in '22 . Off the court is more important. Need to land impact recruits in the '23 class and find some big time players in the transfer market this Spring. Absolutely cannot punt a second season.
Goals: Above .500 in conference play. It won't happen, but I don't see a point in establishing goals lower than that.
