    The advantages of having a likable coach are infinite. You can tell Pike is well like in the basketball community and people in the media are rooting for him

    I’d put RU at #8 - I think we surprise a lot of the experts. I was tempted to go a little higher but I’ll leave that up to Al.

    We will finish top 10 I believe. Young and a year under Harper, McConnell, Myles and Mathis belt will do way more than you think. Akwasi by all account should be a plus as well.

    I'm not surprised to see predictions like this given our recent departure. I like staying under the radar with what we have on the roster.

    Based on last year, that potentially puts RU on the bubble.

    re: 20 game schedule, I'm paraphrasing a bit:

    "It's good for me, I don't really have to schedule [out of conference] anymore."

    Hate hate hate this. Please delegate the scheduling to somebody else who can put this team in the best position to succeed!

    There's 7- 8 games to schedule vs 10 OOC... we are in the B1G vs ACC and have Seton Hall and perhaps another Big East team via the Gavitt games.

    How many of the 7 games out of 30 to 32, have to be knock out, drag down games....do you believe the B1G is a bad league??

    What B1G program is miles better than another one right now, once you get past the Top 4 or 5 teams this year...??

    Coach Pike mentioned Myles Johnson had a 3.6 in Engineering. At the University of North Carolina, it would have been a 4.0 in Engineering. Or Pre Med. Or Pre Law. Or all three at the same time. Plus he would have had a lot more free time with none of those annoying classes to go to or books to read or papers to write or tests to take.

    Listening to the podcast when he's talking about recruiting and player development.....you can't help but love our coach! The thing is, it doesn't sound like typical coach-speak.

    I think he mentioned the new practice center at least six times. He is almost as anxious for it to open as me.

    I do wonder what Rothstein's prediction would have been had EO not transferred. I feel as if EO's departure is having a dampening effect on the opinions of prognosticators.

    Which is fine with me, as our team can stay under the radar. Best of the worst (#11) isn't going to get opposing teams or fanbases too amped up to play us. Let 'em continue to sleep on us.

    Holy cow, I didn't even notice that he had PSU 5th. That's craaaaaaaazzzzzy. I know they have Stevens -- who is admittedly an elite scorer in this conference -- and a couple of other pieces, but geezus, 5th?!

    Keep in mind these guys like to make some bold predictions from time to time. PSU finished very strong last year. They also have shown they can beat some of the better teams in conference.

    So much Competition. I wonder if Yeboah will play 30+. I don’t think he will at the moment.

    Would love to see a near duplicate of Wisconsin’s Kohl Center in my lifetime.
