Also, often coaches have their best recruiting classes within their first year or two. Just look at Mullin and Lavin. Just because he's stockpiling mid-major talent now doesn't mean he's going to elevate that to Big East talent. If anything, the way he's recruiting now tells me he won't be a problem for us.

This is his zero class. His first class is in November. Lavin in what you term his first class brought in Dwayne Polee it was his November class when he hit the jackpot.

If we are to regain any portion of our past Glory, we need to toughen our OOC early schedule . For example, play a Gonzaga or Kansas or Auburn in the Garden . Could pair it as a Double header , Syracuse vs UConn . Guaranteed a sell out . Yes , 1/2 the Garden would be Orange and Huskie fans . Or , Notre Dame vs Kentucky .

I've been told by others on board that Gonzaga doesn't pack them in.

Ready or not, Pitino wants to be THE program in NY metro
area. Iona will get tons more coverage with him being there.

Have heard, from a source I trust, that MSG has offered Iona 3-4 home games.

Don't know if that is over 2 or 3 years.

Even given Rick's ambition, the top program in the NY/NJ area may be Rutgers which is expected to be a top 20-25 team next season
