Realistically, I'd like to see 22-24 wins.

So, you're thinking NIT berth / NCAA bubble team depending?

What will your position be if next season is another swing and a miss?

I think so, or certainly expect it. If it doesn't turn out that way, I'd say I'd be disappointed with an eye brow raised, probably not buying all the "we-are-young" stuff.
I think we surprise some folks. Just my opinion.

If Markel wants to even sniff the NCAA tournament he'll need to graduate and transfer.

So your complaining about the job Tubby did during the season on one hand they saying the all the players suck except Dedric on the other...

Depth and Tubby didn't coach 'em up as well as advertised.

So if Dedric leaves we have no viable options according to you and Tubby was supposed to "Coach them up". Sounds like you need to make up your mind.

And the depth issue was self inflicted. You can't win with a team of walk ons.

No, if DL leaves that's the best player gone. Left with average point guard and KJ who can be pretty good but not as good as his brother. Jimario is just too slender. Markel can be very good but something went horribly wrong with him late.

Unsure on what we have with Clergeot.

Azab? As far as I can tell he was largely unrecruited.

Tubby failed to add any meaningful depth this year so all I see are incoming freshmen and whatever he can scrape up late.

Tubby really didn't coach up what he had and he failed to round out this year's roster and is not exactly setting the woods on fire with 2017 class.

What do you think?

Can I be the 'you' that answers?

If so, I'd like to say...we are going to sink to sad depths, or just manage to tread water, all based on who we recruit.

If this is not irony at its finest, I don't know what is. Recruiting is said to be Tubby's main weakness. He may be given a chance like never before to dispel that myth or reinforce it as fact.

Well until the recruiting class/defections/transfers situation shakes out, who really knows what to expect. I don't feel all warm and fuzzy like everything will be okay though.

Frankly my expectation is upward progress with ZERO excuses about recruiting, roster depth, fans, distractions, expectations or schedule.

I'd say that sums up our current situation pretty well.
