Good chance this kid leaves Minnesota

This is where the immediate transfer rule can benefit SJU. Knowing it's not happening yet but kids coming home after leaving to not good results. They can make a killing off of kids with a chip on their shoulder coming home.

But I think he's part of that Sidney Wilson jellyfam stuff so likely not high in SJU
Think Baldi thinking of his Iona squad.

St Johns needs a PG

The only way you bring this staff back for another year is if you think they can do well and compete. I can not see how anyone in their right mind believes that. Nothing they have done has warranted another year. The longer this experiment goes on. The more embarrassing it becomes.
Playing devils advocate here and keep in mind I'm one of the unhappy ones. BUT would you say last year was on ok year ? Not great year and not horrible year ?

So while not throwing out this year from our memory but if we have a chance of having fuller and potentially better and more experienced roster next year and let's assume chance Mullin learns from mistakes of this year and grows from it dont we at least give the homegrown Hall of fame player the chance to coach that 4th year with full team and see what happens after all we have been through as fans over the last 20 years ?

What IF next year everyone came back and it became that breakthrough year ( I'm not saying it will be but what if there was a chance ) and if we hit our stride next year and we have a home grown Hall of Fame player coaching our team

I'll take the chance on that 4th year instead of blowing everything up and starting over knowing we have well over 3 million a year already committed for 3 more years and pray he gets it right
More than reasonable.

Why should it be presumed that we will have to go through an entire rebuild?  Before I get crushed with ďbecause thatís what always happens hereĒ this team is balanced for the next 5-6 years which is completely different than any other coach in last 15 years.

If Mullin does not succeed, which I donít believe he will, the next hire will have more players to start with, which is what normally happens in cbb. Will there be defections and recruits not coming, of course but at least that coach will have a base to work with, and hopefully is a competent coach, currently somewhere with experience.
Yes if Mo were to leave after this year or probably even next year he would be leaving the program in much better shape then when he came in. The next coach would have the opportunity to convince remaining players tot stay and recruits to remain committed. When Mahoney left FF was able to keep all 5 recruits on board. Of course Mully still has a chance to resurrect the program if he keeps most of and the impt pieces to stay and the incoming recruits intact and someone on whatever the staff looks like next year can coach.
