Isn't every recruit a "I hope"? All three of those guys you listed for Loyola were "I hope" before they played. I know that Yarbrough was one of the most dominate players in the Valley this year. I know that Evans and Fayne were very good players for us. I know that Tinsley really started to play well at the end of the year. No one had high expectations for Fayne when we recruited him. Most people gave up on Evans after his freshman year. No one knew if Yarbrough would be a triple-double threat every game. Some were saying that Tinsley didn't have D1 talent halfway through his first year playing D1 basketball.V Boy wrote: ↑Wed Mar 07, 2018 11:24 amI only care about us getting better and bringing in stronger and stronger players.
We are 0-6 in Valley title games in the past 10 or 11 years. And the past couple times we have made it to the championship game it was not competitive.
As far as I know Chastain isn’t even on scholarship, so Muller really hasn’t even taken on any risk yet.
I hope he turns out to be our best player. It would probably help make the arena more than half full.
I hope his knee Heels.
I hope he can dribble with his left hand.
I hope. I hope. I hope.
I want to get to.
I know. I know. I know.
You take one look at a kid like Townes. I know. One look at a freshman like Krutwig. I know. One look at a kid like Williamson. I know.
Muller is constantly in I hope mode with half the team. And 80% of this board is complicit to that approach.
The amount of occasions where people on this board defend ISU is 100% not in line with what we have achieved.
And I am getting beat up on “facts” by Sargent Hulka and CPacmel, who want to “change the conversation.”
It is pathetic.
I don't know what will happen next year though and neither does Loyola. I expect improvement and I expect that we will be in contention for a Valley championship, but I don't know that will happen. There are so many unknowns in sports which is what makes it so exciting. I don't understand why the idea that many of us expect and hope Chastain will improve our bench play next year is such a controversial statement. I don't know what the point of being a sports fan is if you don't at least have some hope and optimism about your team.
