Demons Abyss / Re: 2021-2022 Season Predictions
« Last post by dive55 on October 05, 2021, 12:18:16 PM »
9-2 Non-Conference
6-14 Conference
9th Place in Conference
One BET Win
CBI Post-season 2-1

Gut says the non-conf has the feel of the '19/'20 season where they racked up wins but everyone really knew the talent wouldn't hold up in conference.  Hoping for a couple spots above last place in the conference on some blind faith that this coach can get a team to gel better and scrape by with a couple more wins against teams not playing well or in a down year.

One win in the BET tourney against another team forced to play on the first day.

An invite from the CBI despite a slightly below .500 record and a reason for the coach to give his players more time to play together seems somewhat logical.  At least to me.

Figure this might get a little chatter going.  What's your guess on season record for the Blue Demons?

Non-Conference:  11 Games
Conference:  20 Games
Conf Standing:  1st - 11th?
Big East Tourney: ?
Postseason: ?

Peevey talked a big game.  Obviously the budget wasn't enough to get a primary target to DePaul. Not sure I was keen on Peevey's primary target anyways.  DePaul needed to bring a ton of money to get everyone's attention with a named hire but they obviously didn't do that.  Its a 3 year process, minimum, as high 4 star / 5 stars are simply not going to commit to DPU without TS showing a track record.  Too much decay in the program.  I personally don't think a nationwide recruiting focus will work as well as a solid Chicago-centric focus like PK and Ray Meyer did.

So whether TS can "grind it out" is the only hope.  Unfortunately, I don't see a huge commitment by DPU.  Big East is too tough for this lower level of commitment.  Could TS succeed?  Sure but he certainly wasn't on anyone's radar screen in Chicago.  C'est La Vi as a DPU fan.

At this time, I am giving it a D. Not that I don't feel that it is a decent hire. My grade is based solely on what has transpired since the hire. Which is nothing. Given the defections, I would have expected some staff announced so that I know that TS is trying to put a team together.  So far nothing but silence. I hope they are more organized behind the scenes.

Oh come on, their instagram post today shows all that they have been up to and how great it has been.

I gave it a C.  I'll freely admit that I don't know what TS brings to the table and all his accolades as a great recruiter and X & O's guy may be 100% accurate.

However, my grade is based on the fact that I don't trust that DePaul is capable of finding a diamond in the rough and making a great hire of a lifetime assistant that appears has never really been a head coaching candidate any time previously.

Would love to be proven wrong.

I gave it a straight C. Top Assistant at a P5 school who has some recruiting chops but no HC experience at 51.

I say a B...we have always wanted a recruiter or a Xs and Os type...
Hard to find both attributes in one guy...especially one willing to come to DePaul....seems like Peevy weighs recruiting heavily...Im cool with that...
That said...Lets go!!!
