    Two bids for the Big East this year unless something changes in a hurry.
    St. John's 2 wins over Marquette will look very good compared to other bubble teams come March probably but they really need to finish .500 or better in conference. Can't believe how inconsistent they are, its crazy.

    Well, Mullin is there coach, so yes I can.

    Will we have a single quality win this year?

    I see other "bad" teams around the country pulling off upsets over ranked teams, but not X.

    I mean they look more like a street ball team than anything else, Shamorie Ponds is really fun to watch, but it's almost like they have no resemblance of any discipline. Granted, I can't say much considering we couldn't guard a paraplegic person at this rate and I'd kill for Johnsies record.

    I mean at this point quality wins or not, does it really matter except for psyche? We arent getting in tourney unless we win it all at MSG.

    Assuming we lose out, which is a very real possibility, we値l lose 20 games. The last time an X team lost 20 games was 81-82. That also happens to be when Travis Steele was born. I was hoping he was a year younger because I really wanted to be able to say the last time a team was this bad, the current coach hadn稚 been born yet.

    At this point we are getting in no tourney. We aren't even close to the NIT bubble. Now, all that said - this year's done. I am concerned but yet still hopeful for next season (and actually in 2 years). If we're not back by then ...

    The good news is that as the 10th best team in the Big East we’ll be the second team eliminated in NYC and not the first. So we’ve got that going for us. Which is nice.

    It sucks to suck

    Saw something on Facebook today from Shannon Russell about Malcolm Bernard being in town rehabbing his torn Achilles tendon. He apparently has asked Steele if he can talk to the team. Malcolm was part of the team that lost 6 in a row. We値l see what happens.
