Drexel looks to be on their way to a 30+ point loss as 16 seed. The previous 4 years I believe the CAA was 13, 14, 13 and 12 so hopefully this year is an outlier.

Hofstra probably would have been a 13 or 14 last year.

Correct, if all players come back we will be at 13.; however, I believe any senior returning does not count a against the 13 so you may see schools with 14-17 scholarship players. I may be wrong on this but thought I read it.

MI also wants to win so not all 13 may be back if he has the ability to upgrade the roster.
darthdave, If you are right about the scholly limits, is that just a 2021-2022 season change due to covid? Given UD's budget woes, I don't believe we will be seeing a Men's Basketball roster of 14-17 players. I may be wrong, but I can't see MI, AD Rawak, and UD throwing kids who have given their best effort and complied with all team rules and academic & behavioral requirements out of the program just to upgrade the talent. I certainly hope not. It not only isn't the moral thing to do, it could damage your program's reputation and adversely affect recruiting. What you suggest MI may do is the sort of thing Rick Pittino (among many other low life & unfortunately successful coaches & programs) and whoever hires him do.
Come on Bill..,,Never said MI would resort to cutting players but there are many reasons kids transfer so read between the lines.
darthdave, Come on yourself. You posted "MI also wants to win so not all 13 may be back if he has the ability to upgrade the roster." So your post was clearly about the possibility that MI may not welcome some players back in order to bring in more talented players, not players deciding on their own to enter the transfer portal or otherwise leave of their own accord.

Dave,

Some folks do not have the ability to read between the lines. They are more than a few on this board.

BTW, I ran into Coach Ingelsby last week. Had a very nice conversation with him on a number of topics.

Looking forward to watching March Madness. Mutts on at noon, Drexel at 1PM. Rooting for both
UDPat, And some folks have trouble comprehending what they are reading. See my response to darthdave above.

I am on board with darthdave's thoughts on transfers ... the current system is insane. But the NCAA is scared to death of 2 things ... being sued by the players and the P5's breaking off and loosing all that money. Hence, the status quo is here for a while and the mid-majors will pay a heavy price for it.
I don’t think we have to accept that. It’s been a good day for mid-majors. In a world where Oral Roberts and North Texas both knock Big 10 teams out of the tournament, let’s not blame the system and play the victim.

If programs like those can do it, why not us?

🙄 - If you get in you can graduate. How easy is it to get a 2.0 with minimal effort. Let’s not kid ourselves, UD has 2 admittance standards like every other University.

Yes, UD, like probably all (including the most prestigious) but a few colleges, probably has separate admittance standards for several special categories, including athletes. However, I would argue that UD's admission standards for athletes are higher than those at a substantial number of colleges. It is relative. UD's regular admission standard is lower than Harvard's and UD's athletic admission standard is lower than Harvard's athletic admission standard. But, UD's admission standards may be much higher than those at Oral Roberts and North Texas. Certainly there are many colleges where the admission and retention requirement are the bare minimum and some are possibly fraudulent. Some make sure their athletes stay eligible and even graduate. Not so at UD. The athlete must perform academically.

Another Dematha kid in portal. Josh Carlton, 6’11 245 from UCONN. Got decent minutes but with Painter here, doubt he would come in to this situation, probably looking for 30+mins a game.
