I have great confidence in Dawn and the future of our program. She is a proven winner as a player and as a coach. Very proud to have her here.
Ahh a sane rational post...my thanks to you...it's good know all of our fans are not given to hysteria over missing a few top flight recruits...I think we'll be just fine...

Stars are a bad way of looking at basketball. There are way too many five stars.

the difference in landing Aja Wilson and the #40 player in the country is generally a lot greater than stars will tell you.

I am disappointed in this class, but it is still a good class.

I think we start really appreciating what Aja Wilson did here next year when she is in the WNBA. Next year is going to be rough without our elite bigs we've been spoiled with the last few years.

I think you are way off base here. We should not have been a sweet 16 team based off talent when we beat Purdue the first time at their house. We will still have at least 6 to 7 five star players on our team next year to go with any transfers we may pursue for the post position. We have elite wings and guards and other than Aja, Alaina, Griner, Ogumiwikes Sisters and a Della Donne, many of these post players have been hit and miss or just Solid players. Heck Geno has won his last few championships off of the strength of wing players, as Tuck played the post undersized at 6'2 and his two post players this year are 5'11 and 6'1. Dawn has that length already. She develops players. She will keep us in the hunt for a National Title. Believe it. If it were all about recruiting rankings, Tenn and Baylor would have played for the title last year and Baylor would have played for the title the past three years as they and Maryland consistently won recruiting top classes. Maryland was at Final Four with us 3 yrs ago, Baylor has not been back in 5 years. You cannot make your assumption. We have to wait and see how it plays out.

don't follow your rational...We just beat the top ranked class from 2015 Monday night on their floor...When Tenn comes to CLA in Jan we'll beat the no1 class from 2016..UCLA's no1 ranked class from 2014 has won nothing, not even a conf title...this theory that rankings are so exact you can forecast these things is absolute nonsense...The key is to be top top 10-15 each year...

We all expected this to be a banner class...We are all disappointed we came in second on some terrific prospects...2nd is the worse place to be, because we turned down some early commits to wait on the big fish...It didn't go our way...But there is no excuse for all the doom and gloom hysteria..We are not going to win the Championship every year...No team does..

But if the inference is our program is headed into the crapper, that's just shear nonsense...We'll add more great players next year...We will contend for SEC and National honors for the foreseeable future
