Looks like we are headed in the right direction.  We are in a bottom feeder BB conference and I think given time we can be competitive.  This is a 3-5 yr project to be a top 4 team in our conference.  Luckily Butler and Valpo left. I really think we got the right coach. Give him time. Didn’t Slocum almost get 10 yrs.

I'm not happy Butler, Valpo, and Loyola left the conference.  I would much rather still have them in the Horizon League, now we have a crappy conference.

Oh, I am upset too.  The conference strength too a hit and both Butler and Valpo are usually well coached.  It just made YSU coaches job easier.

I want a weaker conference, we still have an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament so a weaker conference just improves our likelihood of making it.

The conference being down does help us out at this point.
