Still think Fordham 2001-2002 has to be one of the biggest disappointments.
Take a coach who won 120+ games in 2 seasons as a head NBA coach in the last 5 seasons.
Add a 1&done, #74&#77 recruits and one NYC playground legend.
and that equals…. 8-20

That may be difficult to top. Even if Mooney says “Hold my Chardonnay!“ this season.
I've heard the butteriness of chardonnay gives Mooney heartburn. That's why he's more of a white wine spritzer guy.

He has recently purchased a vineyard. Soon you’ll be able to savor a glass of Moon’s Farm at the Robins Center.

Early reviews says it has a unsatisfactory finish and the bitter aftertaste lasts for years.

I think that's fair considering it takes into account Jamie's injury.

He also said that he could have Richmond 10 spots to low.

If he means too low as in he could have them as like a top 30 or so team in the country, I can assure him he's not.

I don't get the thought process that an undisciplined team that went 6 and 5 in conference last year who brings nothing really new to the table all of the sudden becoming nationally relevant.

There are a lot of things I like here. We're at 75, I understand why we would be put that low with injuries, may teams with these injuries would fall further. The A10 has 7 teams, half the league in the top 100. We have some good opportunities in BFA, to show we are a bit better than this ranking.

I don't think they'll be bad but I dunno if I buy the Bonnies being as good as they're projected to be. I think the shortened season last year helped an awful lot.

I think they have the potential to be very good. Though they've gotten a transfer or two to help, I would agree the longer season may expose a lack of depth. We have three major injuries now, it hurts us but we'll be very competitive, they get one or two and they will be in trouble.
