    With all the roster changes throughout college bb it’s going to be extremely difficult to forecast the season for almost every team, including X. I’m going to trust that Miller will be able to mold this roster into a team, but it might take a little time before they jell. I think that X has a summer trip scheduled, that includes playing some games against club teams, and that should help to speed the process up. But make no mistake that it’s not just about how talented the roster is individually, it’s also about how well they play together.

    Looking more and more like David Jones to Memphis.
    Sean really wanted him. Would have been a huge piece.
    Damn the NIL.

    Where did you see that? Must have read some guys tweet. He just finished his visit to Xavier. Itís uncertain if he can graduate to be eligible. Xavier, Memphis, KY and now Kansas state.

    Yeah, I don’t know how true that really is. I mean, I saw how Pitino put it out there in a video that he asked players to leave -which honestly was kind of a dickish thing to say publicly. It was his way to get ahead of any potential situation where players who may be considering leaving to play for another coach are made to look bad and frankly all St John’s players look bad until he give them his blessing.

    He puts out that statement to create the perception that any player from the 22-23 roster returning season is elite level and and if you are eligible and are not on next season’s roster (no matter what the true reason is) then you are not that good. It’s just a BS optics move. He has created a narrative that really sticks it to all SJ players who don’t try to kiss his ass and fall in line.


    No doubt Rick is a talented coach and his addition to the league will likely make the BE an even better conference in terms of overall quality teams. Unfortunately, his undeniable sliminess, shadiness and meanness also taints the BE in a big way. I don’t like the way he operates… and no, I do not believe a player is mediocre just because he doesn’t bend a knee to the new dark lord of St. John’s.
