The world isn't black and white. Our current level of suck is a couple/three gradations above the level of suck we previously showcased.

That's how you know Christian is good

Christian's got a higher winning percentage in ACC tourney games though. He's a big game coach - a great quality.

ND's 6'8" forward Chris Doherty is transferring. Local and was recruited by us.

Freshmen twins at Maryland are entering the transfer portal. Both are 6'10" centers. Getting both would help, obvs but would need to be coached up. Worth a phone call/text, imo.

This was one of the comments to the tweet, I think the culture aspect is spot on ...

While Thornton has been up and down, BC would likely be 0-2 in the ACC instead of 2-0. Against Wake, he had 23 points (7/14) and had 19 points (9/12) against ND. Overall, he has been a decent addition thus far.

Great offer, but I have serious doubts since he’s like 7’2” and 210 lbs

No one talented plays the 5 anymore. It's a dead position at the next level.

In an attempt to start a big and stupid argument, I will point out that Tomas Murphy is in the transfer portal

Reached out to James Karnik from Lehigh another sit one play one guy. Feel like Jimmy should be going after guys that can play right away if he was smart.

Pursuing a "sit one play one" guy isn't the problem - we have 3 open scholarships and getting 3 grad transfers to play immediately won't happen (figure 2 of 3 at most).

Of course, we're all looking at this through the lens of "Covid saved Jimmy Mac's job, and he's a dead man walking," but he's looking at it through the lens of "I need to balance out scholarships for the year after next, when Stef and Luka graduate."

Is what it is. 12 and 7 in the Patriot League isn't terrible.

Agreed, but better than Luka and probably better than the unproven frosh Vander Baan. Tim Duncan isn't walking through that door.

Considering how the W-L record is way below avg, JC does manage to bring in some talent and get them into the NBA. Obvs, I'd rather see the team in the NCAAs.
