  • My expectations are pretty high. Maybe it's just me, but if my expectations aren't met, I will simply admit that I was wrong. That will not make me less of a fan or make me bitter at the team or coaches because I was wrong.

    I'm predicting a top-4 finish in the AAC.and no less than a bubble NIT team. I will not accuse players or coaches of under-achieving if those optimistic expectations aren't met.

    I'm basing part of my optimism on my opinion that the players on the roster, and particularly the returning players, will fit better into Mills style of game than IB's. I'm expecting both a pick-n-rpoll game and a drive and dish game.

    Dennis is my poster child for coaching style. Under IB Dennis was ignored on the offensive end because he couldn't hit the basket. Opposing teams WANTED him to shoot. Then he transferred and his shooting touch magically returned and he got to the G League. That happened with other players as well, but it was jaw-dropping the way it happened with Dennis.
    The future's so bright - I gotta wear shades.

    • Serious question, is long term development still a thing in the NIL/transfer portal era? High level D1 athletics has gone haywire and I'm just wondering if boosters, fans, athletes, coaches, media have any patience left during these crazy times. If you listen to certain local media members it's postseason or bust with Mills in year 1 (which BTW I think is lunancy).

        If you are good enough to be attracting significant NIL money, you would be foolish to completely ignore long term development. Depending on how much NIL is being thrown at you, it might not be your highest priority, but taking a little less NIL money for better development of your game is going to be very beneficial financially long term. I would think most of the time, athletes are going to have a few similar offers to choose from, so things like long term development will matter.

        Here is a hypothetical, if Shamet had been able to get NIL money, would he have stuck around another year to see if he could improve his draft prospects? I have no idea, but is interesting to think about.

          I think Shamet was going to leave - period. As it turned out, his draft status was high enough that he could leave for the NBA instead of another school. Has he sniffed the campus or Wichita after he left?

            Yes, and he credits being an NBA player to WSU and Coach Marshall:

            “I wouldn’t be an NBA player if I stayed in Kansas City my whole life. I came here and got to play for Coach (Gregg) Marshall and play in front of these people and this city and that spring-boarded me to where I’m at now.”

                      Almost exactly the same.
