It's the path of least resistance.
It's not just Uconn we are losing out to though. It's very odd.

All of our problems recruiting are solved once we get a bagman!

There is no point obsessing about it. We'll still be a good team, but it feels like starting over when it should be taking off even more.

This is actually insane. One of the main reason there is no parity in WCBB. Some old stuff every year

Geno will retire in a few years and UCONN will move back to the pack.

Heís 63... I think his huge ego will carry him to at least 70. He probably wants to retire now but heís so energized from tormenting the rest of WCBB that he refuses to go quietly.

We must not be doing something right on the recruiting trail.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again while exp3cting a different result. Something needs to change. Period.

I think Dawn know both Williams and ONO would commit somewhere else and made sure we had something to focus on and celebrate, instead of obsessing over some set backs.

Banner raising on Friday, rings for the entire Athletics Department, the Band and Cheerleaders on Wednesday.

Remember: 10 years ago, this program had a losing record. Just two wins in the SEC! Now we are national Champs, ranked #4 in the country, average 32 wins a year, dominate the conference etc.

This was built from practially nothing! The next title probably won't come quickly, but it will come, no doubt in my mind!

Just have a look at the two programs who beat us this recruiting season:
  • Baylor and Mulkey needed 6 seasons for the second title.
  • UConn and Auriemma needed 5 seasons for their second title.

I believe we have arrived and the future is bright, but the fruits of last season will take a bit longer to mature. Just need a bit of patience and enjoy this really good season we are just starting. There is plenty of history for this team to make!

Geno will probably stay until he can pass Summitt as the winingest coach in women's basketball. But, he will never do what Pat did to grow the game.

Well, Pat grew the game... but according to a lot of people, Geno and UConn are killing the game.

Personally, I think that’s stretching it a bit. “Killing the game” is a little intense. Yes, UConn fatigue is real but I don’t think we’re going to see that same dominance going forward that we’ve seen from them in the past. Even with them getting Nelson-Ododa and Williams, maybe I’m wrong but I don’t think either are transcendent (I STILL think NaLyssa Smith could end up being better than both in the right hands, unfortunately I’m not sure Mulkey has those hands).. there are just too many programs that care about WBB now to let that kind of dominance happen.. and talent is beginning to spread itself out more and more.

I agree with you. UCONN fans I know, are always saying a recruit is afraid to compete if they choose another school. They say they don't want to buy into the program, want attention, etc.I especially heard this when A'ja committed here. But I think recruits like A'ja are the ones that aren't afraid to compete.
