A prediction that CMU could lose Trey, McBroom and Derek Jackson, CMU's top 3 scorers.

i don't envy their fans next season. that is going to be an awful team.

Wow. Its probably good for CMU in the long run, but a complete rebuild like this will mean some ugly basketball for at least a year or two.

Going a bit off topic, but it looks like the MAC West will be even worse next year. Toledo should be the favorites, and we should be solid with the transfers and Ray Lee coming in. After that, it gets kinda ugly. WMU loses quite a bit, Ball State has to move on without Jarrod Jones, NIU may still be a year away from being a competitor, and CMU has blown it up. Yucky.

No matter what happens, I just want to see the MAC strong again. Hopefully we can back to a 2 bid conference, I believe one year during the Braun/Boykins/Dial days we had 3 NCAA bids, EMU, WMU, Miami. This year was not good, but I think we can get back to national relevance. OFFTOPIC but Go Ohio, beat Michigan, Pleeeeeeaaaaaase! The MAC needs this one bad.

Well first of all its was the right decision by CMU Ernie Z as a coach has been a joke, I think his son would have developed more under a different coach and improved. Ernie Z outrecruited EMU but it never showed on the court.

I'd wait to see who CMU will bring in to clean up the mess and pick up the pieces.

Anyone have any thoughts?

PS Hawkins may be gone next year at WMU

Hawkins is in a funny situation. it seems like the fanbase is split on him. he recruits well, but it hasn't always translated into good teams.

If the MAC is to get two bids, EMU will most likely have to be one of them.

I see it unlikely that two bids could come from the East as they would beat up on each other.

The 'best case' scenario would be for Murphy to build a strong program and run away from the rest of the west.

So where does this put John Simon the talented 6'8 forward out of Cadillac who signed with CMU in the early period? Does he get to walk due to the coaching change?

Dear Friends,
The buyout for Ziegler was just under $370,000. How might that affect who they may be able to hire? Remember, Ramsey's was $200,000 less. Couldn't have happened to a better school. (the buyout)

Here is an article by David Goricki, Detroit News.

He tosses out a lot of names including some who were candidates for Murphy's position:

Boylan, Lichlighter, etc. Dane Fife's name was dropped.

What I also found fascinating is the reference to Trey and his childhood friend, Austin McBroom. Yep, it appears that are a package deal waiting to happen.

What a package deal: dad as an ass't coach + Trey + Austin McBroom.

Curious if they will stay in the midwest or go back to California?

CMU next year might rival the '2011/'12 NIU team for lack of talent.

This program hasn't hit bottom yet.
