This thread has turned into Exhibit A, that JC should have been given a 4th year.

We could have returned JoeBam, Brayon, with Bishop, everyone else, that group gets to gel together and some of the stokes in the fireplace already would landed on top of that....

Or, we can lose those guys and ask a new guy to start all over.

CC will win in time, full confidence in that, silly to overreact to a few slow weeks of news in the summer.... 
and yet JC and those guys should have been back for 2022/23 

Also setting a very bad predecent that back to back Coaches were not even given 1 full cycle of recruiting classes

I can understand losing transfers to Michigan and U Conn-but Weber St. in Ogden Utah?
We have playing time available-a great location and a much better academic profile than 
Weber St. I don’t get it.Caputo may turn out to be a good or great coach but so far I’m not 
impressed with his ability to close the deal.I feel like I’m losing interest in a long term relationship 
and I’m concerned it will end by me just “ghosting” my soon to be ex-paramour.

I'm not sure Ballard would have moved the needle on this team regardless, but I'd take a "3 and D" guy over an open roster spot any day, especially since we'd be getting that scholarship spot back. It definitely seems in general that Caputo is treating this season as a "stopgap" year of sorts, given the guys we pursued (Jawara, Calcaterra, Baker, Ballard, etc.) aren't long term pieces. Jawara might have two years of eligibility left but the rest of the guys have just one.

Not sure why it's been so hard to fill the 12th spot. We've brought in a number of talented players on visit (which is great!) but it's unfortunate we haven't been able to close the deal. Scholarships are pretty much only one year guarantees anyway at this point so I'd be surprised if we didn't fill it some way even if that means getting a D2 guy. Heck even La Salle managed to sign a couple of international guys to fill out their roster. The guard depth on this team is very concerning.

100%, although I honestly think I was more excited to see all the teams in the Mojo era than this one going into the season, including the 9-24 squad. This team's floor and ceiling feels low and given the potential number of departures after next year there doesn't seem much to build from.

This is where I'm at too. I would rather we suck knowing we are building to the future, but this year's team isn't doing that either so it feels like we're going to be spending an extra year being bad than we need to be.

This roster has a "big three" of Bishop, Adams, and Lindo. We may not have a chance in a game if Bishop isn't on. Adams is best serv

Fresno State transfer JR Ballard (@Jrballard__) is on a visit to George Washington.
Ballard played for Cal Poly in the 2019-20 season where he averaged 13.1 points on 36% shooting from three.

Committed to Weber St.

I don’t know that he would have helped (he wasn’t very good for a mediocre Fresno team last year) and I don’t know if Caputo even wanted him, but it’s fairly depressing that we’ve only landed one transfer this entire offseason despite plenty of playing time available.

I am with you. I am glad GW moved on from JC. But we all had to think that some new players would come with a new coach. While I still think that Caputo seems like a good hire, but I just don't get the lack of success recruiting. As we all know, you have to recruit every year because there are so many transfers. Caputo's focus has been on transfers, but we get nothing. Sorry, but the days are over where the first year doesn't matter. After lousy seasons of MoJo and JC, with few ramining faithful need something to look forward to next season. I hope Caputo can turn things around with the team he inherited, minus agruablly the two best players gone, but it sure doesn't look very exciting now. New players would certainly add some excitement.  I hope I am wrong that there is still some talent in the p

Second time Weber St has beaten us out in the transfer portal. We were also in on SIU transfer Steven Verplancken.

There is a player on Panama named Ricardo Erik Lindo Martinez, who also plays in the Panamanian Pro Leagues. I didn't see a Ricky Lindo on the roster. Is this who you are referring to, or is our Ricky a late addition to the roster?

I can't tell if you are being sarcastic but that's him. Two last names is common in Spanish-speaking countries.
