More importantly, depending on a few things like who leaves....the 2020-21 season is shaping up to have a chance at being special.
    Iím curious to see how WVU does this year. The wheels fell off once Jevon Carter moved on and it took until the Big 12 tournament for Huggins to figure this team out. They even managed to get routed in the CBI by Coastal Carolina.

    Replacing Konate with Tshiebwe should help along with having Culver up front. Just donít know how much I buy into the mountaineers this upcoming season.

    I was always skeptical about last season.....long before Konate and Beetle went down, I just did not see a tournament team. They just did not have the pieces to press and play Huggins defense. Any team that was counting on Esa Ahmad to be a leader and consistent producer had little chance. That said, I am all in on this years team. I am not sure if you got to watch them in Spain last month, but Emmitt Matthews is going to be a star. I will not go down the line, but Culver and Oscar are simply going to be a nightmare on defense and the boards. Finally, the pieces Huggins added via junior college (McNeil & Sherman), transfers (Gabe O. if they can get waiver) and Freshmen Deuce McBride, Jalen Bridges, (and Oscar) fit the needs this team had like a glove. I think this is a Top 25 team that will compete nightly, will make a deep run in the Big 12 Tournament, then get the fan base excited in the NCAA tournament. Still it is missing that experience it often takes to get deep in the tournament.

    Then not to get too far ahead of myself, but if Culver and Oscar stay in college for another year....the 2020-21 squad has all the ingredients of a Top 10 / Final 4 level roster. The 3 Seniors that will leave after this season are all middle and back end rotation guys that will be replaced by high level recruits already committed. Every time I think about the struggles we will likely have in football this season, I just think about basketball and it makes me smile.
