What is the difference between politicians and stoners? Politicians don't inhale...they just suck.

This is the best non-conference schedule in a long long time...but it is really hard to get excited for the upcoming basketball season. I don't even want to state my win-loss projection.

I'll go out on an early limb and predict less than 8 wins total for the season. I just don't see anything changing under the current staff. That lack of a coaching change coupled with the loss of JJ just doesn't bode well for the Pokes. The pressure is really on Maldonado and he can't carry this team by himself. I think the other Hunter is just too soft to do anything except shoot 3's, so there will be a continued lack of rebounding. If they can't rebound, they aren't going to win many games. I hope I'm wrong but last year is probably a pretty good indicator of things to come this season.

Tinkle their scoring forward and HC's son will be tough to handle and they have a serious shot blocking big. If their new guards can play they're an NCAA tourney team. They should've been last year but those 2 twins weren't tough enough

Maybe 10 and that's with luck on our side, sure hope I'm wrong, but not much to look forward with this bare cupboard, sorry

Some decent games on there - South Carolina, TCU/Clemson, OR State - but can we be competitive?

Too bad about Belt, I hate it every time we lose a kid. For the naysayers worried about softness and rebounding, you are thinking about the wrong factor. Our problem is defense--the great equalizer--and physicality. We may get a little from Maldonado but it is never enough to have one or two people being tough and defending. Yes, we are looking at a long season.

Good defense ends with a rebound and physicality is the opposite of softness, so I think most everyone is on the same page.
