Speaking for myself, the issue with some of your posts is certainly not that I think you are any less of a Gopher fan than I am (I'm very sure our sentiments are similar), it's that your writing seems always tinged with the idea that Ben isn't really trying to get the kind of players you think we need. I think that is false.
Everybody here would love to see an all-conference type shooting guard or another great forward. How about an athletic seven footer carrying about 270 pounds? Garcia is the only elite transfer we are likely to see, due to his personal situation which geographically limited his options. Until we take a few more steps upward Minnesota is not an attractive destination for top portal talent to play a year or two. We have a much better chance to attract program changers through high school recruiting.
I don't want to speak for Bob, but I was never expecting Ben to bring in another all-conference type shooting guard. I would be happy with another Willis, Stephens, Loewe type guard, which I think is a reasonable expectation. Unfortunately I think both Cooper and Samuels are a step below those 3.
