It has much the same feel as heading into 2008-09. In 2006 Mike Anderson took over an absolutely cratered program with little fan support and a terrible roster. In year 1 did surprisingly well with it, but took a considerable step backward in year 2. The type of player he was selecting for was unique for his system, so from a recruiting standpoint it felt like we were taking on a lot of projects and reaches, and certainly weren't landing many national level recruits.

Now in that instance we had the largest year over year improvement in terms of wins in program history in year three as his roster was finally populated with guys who could play the style he wanted to play. I think we are still 2 years off from that, but we need to see some decent steps towards it this year. I think it will happen. But its at least within the realm of possibility that instead we have a rather mediocre season, and that would leave a lot of big question marks. The on the court results in my opinion will have some long term implications for both this staff and our program in general.

     Year 3 recruiting affects year 4 performance. Quality - Sigma MU - 10/8 11:03:43
          Recruiting is directly related to attendance which is - alstl MU - 10/8 12:21:45
               in the past 5 years, we've had the #11 and #4 recruiting - zounami MU - 10/8 12:47:27
                    Hired the Porter family(nm) - alstl MU - 10/9 15:23:20
               thats not really true - wu-tangtiger MU - 10/8 12:29:31
          Only at the 5 for this team - wu-tangtiger MU - 10/8 11:09:22
               Not true. We still need an additional forward, 6.7-6.8. - Sigma MU - 10/8 11:13:09
                    Not above their talent level - wu-tangtiger MU - 10/8 11:24:41
                         Mitch has played to his talent level. Muscle doesn't - Sigma MU - 10/8 12:12:22
                              If you want him to play in the post as a old school 5 you - wu-tangtiger MU - 10/8 12:28:22
                                   Cuonzo expects his 5 to rebound in traffic. Mitch - Sigma MU - 10/8 12:56:19
                                        we will see if the added muscle will help - wu-tangtiger MU - 10/8 13:01:45
                         But that is doing that - FIJItiger MU - 10/8 11:38:21
                              Disagree on your take - wu-tangtiger MU - 10/8 11:51:19
                                   Dont conflate his measurements and skill(lack) - Sigma MU - 10/8 12:17:39
                                   In my opinion, Nikko has by far the highest - FIJItiger MU - 10/8 12:16:44
                                        Parker Braun had offers from LSU, Illinois, Ole Miss, - TheWildcat STL - 10/8 12:31:23
                                             Yet he was a walkon that took a non-medical redshirt on - FIJItiger MU - 10/8 12:34:07
                                                  He was often the second best player on his AAU team - wu-tangtiger MU - 10/8 12:37:16
                                                       Are you saying he was better than the kid at ku? - Sigma MU - 10/8 13:00:05
                                                            they year they played with Jontay - wu-tangtiger MU - 10/8 13:03:27
                                                       Agree, I've never seen him play - FIJItiger MU - 10/8 12:40:38
                                                            And probably won’t get a real idea this season - wu-tangtiger MU - 10/8 12:42:38
                                                                 That is why I make the distinction of talent - FIJItiger MU - 10/8 12:50:39
                                                                      ok then we disagree on the definition of talent - wu-tangtiger MU - 10/8 12:54:03
                                                                           That makes sense (nm) - FIJItiger MU - 10/8 12:57:17
                                                  That was due to his desire to play at a University with - TheWildcat STL - 10/8 12:36:44
                                   Feej thinks that you can't be talented if you werent - TheWildcat STL - 10/8 11:54:47
                                        Lol..Westbrook & Dame as examples for Mitch - Sigma MU - 10/8 12:14:48
                                             There are misses all over the place. I am not saying either - TheWildcat STL - 10/8 12:28:19
                                                  The issue: hoping misses on too many players. Mitch - Sigma MU - 10/8 13:03:53
                                                       Well sure you would much rather have all your recruits - wu-tangtiger MU - 10/8 13:07:48
                                                            Other than some of Mike Anderson's recruits and - FIJItiger MU - 10/8 13:12:34
                                                                 No I said all recruits to be top 100 - wu-tangtiger MU - 10/8 13:16:08
                                                                      Other than Jason Conley (who was a transfer that - FIJItiger MU - 10/8 13:29:51
                                                                           Quin had guys like Douglas, Matt Lawrence and a couple - wu-tangtiger MU - 10/8 13:39:25
                                                                                we were banned from leaving campus to recruit that season - FIJItiger MU - 10/8 13:46:41
                                                                                     So we have never just recruited top 100 recruits - wu-tangtiger MU - 10/8 14:07:25
                                                                                          Disagree, other than brief anomaly periods we have always - FIJItiger MU - 10/8 16:44:58
                                                                                               Cuonzo has mostly recruited top 150 players - wu-tangtiger MU - 10/8 16:49:55
                                        Agree, talent in that sense can't be improved - FIJItiger MU - 10/8 12:07:04
                                             Physical stature is a huge component of talent - wu-tangtiger MU - 10/8 12:25:14
                                                  Bowers improved in physical stature, skill, and fundamentals - FIJItiger MU - 10/8 12:36:57
                                        It’s possible guys like Mitch and Braun don’t meet - wu-tangtiger MU - 10/8 12:00:30
                    I think it depends on how we use the players - FIJItiger MU - 10/8 11:22:25
          Next year the team will be loaded with juniors and - TheWildcat STL - 10/8 11:07:18
               If everyone continues to expand their game. Some - Sigma MU - 10/8 11:14:53
     people are complaining about the 2020 class, not the - zounami MU - 10/8 10:53:31
          I will ***** about the 2020 class in April if the big kid - TheWildcat STL - 10/8 10:54:59
          Think he's done a fine job so far, but yeah needs to - Diamond Dave MU - 10/8 11:01:13
     RE: Tigerboard, where we ***** about year 3 before year 3 - FIJItiger MU - 10/8 10:44:13
          I think the Porter/Harris/Tilmon class set the program back. - TigerMatt STL - 10/8 11:07:53
               Agree, although Tilmon is by far the most crucial and - FIJItiger MU - 10/8 11:11:28
          I think everyone agrees that year 3 is very important(nm) - TheWildcat STL - 10/8 10:52:09
