I don't see a clear cut star for 15-16.

I also don't think we fall off quite as much as most on here are thinking. On HV, the focus is on who we lose and who we bring in for the next season. All the while, the development of current players gets almost entirely overlooked. Let's see how the current players have developed before writing the team off.

I will say we likely return to our rebounding woes. I enjoyed not getting hammered on the boards but sadly we will likely be back to that in 15-16.

No it isn't. That doesnt mean that next year might be rebuilding for 2016-2017

Your ACT is getting old.  You can disguise it as "realism", but you're a straight troll.

This is exactly right.

I don't know the answer but I suspect Beard will be a star next year.

KeVaughn Allen were to commit he would certainly be the star

I think this is probably true. While there will always be guys who step up, not sure there will actually be a star. With that said, I think it's possible that we could be a team with a bunch of guys who average anywhere from 8-12 ppg. If we can get balanced scoring that can help make up for having two guys who average in the 15-18 range.

Let's hope somebody emerges and becomes a leader for this team because MA has his work cut out for him this next BBall Season.

As much of a homer as you are trying to be. If you understand basketball you know you can't win without stars. Sometimes it takes 3 stars. But stars are important and we just lost two of them. Don't act like this is a 27 win team next year.

We have enough talent to make it back to the tournament if we can get Allen and a good post.

Whitt will emerge as the best player on the team by 1/3 thru the season.

Every 10-12 years we get a Ray Biggers type. I hope that this is one of those years.

best player and star, in the context it is being talked about in this thread, are not necessarily the same thing.

Yep, just fine
I'm with you.  We are going to be just fine.  Mark it down.  22-25 wins.

That's actually pretty funny. Have you seen the recruits that other SEC schools brought in? Miss State even got a McAA, LSU got two McAAs and I'm sure Kentucky had their fair share also. This is an NIT team unless CMA gets KeVaughn and still might be NIT level.

So how many wins do you see? Lets say "hypothetically" we end up with a signing class that consists of Whitt, Kapita, Allen, and this big man that's visiting this weekend whose name I can't think of. When was the last time we signed a class of that caliber? I'm bit saying that anyone we currently have is going to be bobby Portis but I do think our team has a chance to be deeper and overall more skilled than what we've seen in the past and even last season.

12 games decided by 5 points or less last season with 4 starters leaving. To think there won't be a little slippage is just not realistic. Their is 65% or more of the scoring not returning. I think next year is a bridge rebuilding year for 2017 when we have 5 schlorships and have a McAA in our own state. Next years team will compete but they will play like a young team.

Fair enough and I agree with part of that. How many wins do you see?

Losing 4 of 5 starters including two guys who will be playing in the NBA next year and be just fine?
 ??? ??? ??? ??? ???


I would say fine if fine means 18 wins or so.

I also think we will have 1 guy playing in the NBA, and modest minutes at that.

And then, IF MA lands Monk, 16/17 will be the bog year, then we go back to waiting on Sidney Moncrief's grandkid, or another relative or close friend of Mike to have a really good player, or the state of Arkansas to have another above average in state player.

The "bog year" sounds dramatic enough but I think the quagmire year has a better ring. Oh, and congratulate Super Sid on the grandkid. Do you know the kids measurables?

Beard will be the leader of a larger group of role players. Arkansas has always been at least as good when they have 7-9 role players contributing, as they are when they have 1 or 2 stars that the rest of the team count on game in and game out. MA has a good group coming in to compliment the players that are coming back. I expect to see games where Whitt, Bell, Thompson (sp), Kingsley, as well as others (maybe even Allen) show up on different nights to take over and put the team on their back. With the return to the guard heavy roster, one thing is clear, MA is making Hawgball fun to watch again.
