RU enters Katz's offseason Power 36.
I would have hated that, I love Hawkins! Lot of smoke that Illinois will get Pete Nance, too, in addition to already getting Shannon, Jr. We’ll be young, and we’ll play a lot smaller/faster than we had with Kofi … but the talent is definitely there.You have the inside scoop? Is my man crush Hawkins leaving?
I think that new article may warrant a separate thread Mike.Gotta love Katz... thinks RU will be contending in the B1G in 2022-23.
Ha - possibly. Putting aside all the controversial debate about the validity of the comments at that point - clearly as of last season, Pike was “one to talk about how good his team would be”. That’s all I was saying.Maybe not anymore after the reaction from last year lol
There are 14 factors that matter with any B1G ranking. Now tell us about the other 13 ? 😀I'll have what Katz is smoking. 8th? If the season started today, our lineup would be:
G - Mulcahy
G - Miller/Simpson
SF - Mag
PF - Hyatt, Palmquist
C - Cliff, Reiber, Woolfork
That's a bottom 4 in the Big Ten lineup, as I'm not sure where the shooting is coming from other than Paul with his spot-up threes, and maybe 30% from Hyatt and Mag.
It was a misguided post to begin with. Neither Miller nor Simpson was ever going to be a projected starter at 2 as there was close to zero chance we weren’t going to land a transfer guard who is a proven scorer. If it wasn’t Spencer it would’ve been someone else. That much was a given. I do believe the team will be much stronger with Caleb than without him back.There are 14 factors that matter with any B1G ranking. Now tell us about the other 13 ? 😀
Agree with you. Indiana also has two 5 star (22nd and 27th players nationally) and a 4 star coming in. Woodson is cleaning up. They could be a Top 10 team.Indiana has to be a preseason favorite with Jackson- Davis returning.Michigan has Dickerson and Rutgers has Cliff returning,
He loves who we are recruiting... wonder who he is referring to there?Gotta love Katz... thinks RU will be contending in the B1G in 2022-23.
Pretty sure he said RU would make a run in the tourney....how right was he.
we were an inbounds pass away from his prediction being right on. ND ended up beating us in double OT, & did exactly what Katz predicted RU would do. Beat Alabama, & lose to Texas Tech in a rock fight..
I, for one, loved last year’s team and I could understand why Andy Katz did as well. Unfortunately, we lost a heartbreaker to a team that was on the brink of going to sweet 16. Let’s face it, there are a lot of good teams in tournament, and winning just one game is not a given.
Well, he was a helluva bus driver for Rutgers. 😆 You can't say that for the other teams.Katz is very good at his job. He smoozes with fan bases. I see Rutgers fans think he loves their program. Illinois fans think he loves Illinois. They talk about it just as Rutgers fans do. Purdue fans think he loves Purdue. Same with Indiana. He says the right things at the right times to fan bases.
