Other than McDuffie, they will be young and inexperienced. There recruiting class is good, they got a top 50 JC center. My gut tells me that they won't be horrible. As much as I dislike Marshall, he always seems to get the most out of the players.

I don’t think I would ever count Gregg Marshall out. Not a fan of his at all, but respect what he has accomplished.
Pretty much. I would kill to have his track record of success.

Losing shamet is the absolute dagger. Is he actually a 1st round material pick?

Even though they are the worst fan base on earth, Chad Lufile's mom is battling cancer and needs help. I sent a small donation.

Yeah, with one returning player, they won't be bad. They'll be well beyond bad. 7 or 8 wins depending on the number of patsies on the schedule. With luck, they only decline further.

7 or 8 wins? With the culture they've created? I don't think so. You can hate 'em, I get it. But they have that thing rolling, and the jealousy here is silly. And...Marshall, overall, is getting BETTER players from top to bottom than 5 years ago. (yeah, I know that includes VF and the blonde bomber).

Bet they'll win 20 in next year's down year. So I'll call your 7 or 8 wins and raise you with a Heineken. If I lose I'll get ya that Heine plus free game tix (good seats) if you're not a season-ticket holder.

no.

Maybe.

Even if he doesn't go first round, I think he'll be a solid guard in the league over time. Shaun Livingston-style player with much better range.

I think it's a good decision for his future, even if he doesn't go first round.

Fred Van Vleet didn't go first round... or at all, and he is a serviceable bench player on the No.1 team in the Eastern NBA conference.

Guys, Wichita St is going to be... bad this year. Like... not good. Like... wouldn't be in the top half of the Valley not good.

Love it.

I don't think they're going to be bad.
Well they currently have four scholarship players so kinda tough to say they’ll be good unless they sign a massive haul in the next few weeks.
They're currently at 11 with the recruits they have coming in.

It's gratifying how much they're going to suck. marshall plays dinasaur ball now, too. Two post players and not enough good 3 point shooters.

They will probably be down a bit next year, but I wouldn't say the wheels are falling off. Overall they will be fine as long as Marshall is there.

They havent completely fallen off yet... but they're in the process of doing so.

Graduate a few guys.
Have key guys transfer out.
Lose a stud recruit.

Didn't think it would accelerate this quickly, but the unraveling is beginning.

Wait until a couple schools defect from the conference or triple G takes off....

Wichita State transfer Austin Reaves told ESPN he will visit Oklahoma Monday and Northern Iowa later this week. One of best transfers out there.

He could end up in the MVC afterall. How funny would that be?

Lateral move 8-)

UNI would really benefit.

Hm.... Wichita State fans didn't think there would be minutes for him next season, but he goes P5. Also, Wichita State plays Oklahoma 2018-19. If they play in the 2019-20 season do you think Mar$hall will petition the NCAA to not allow Reaves to play against them?
