The Racer 2019-2020 team

Post by racernut69 »

Yes it's early, but I am confident in stating that we all are looking ahead at next year's team.
We've been so richly blessed with point guards who average 20-24 points per game. Will Chico or Daquan carry on with those lofty heights? It's too early to tell, but from the You Tube vids I review, the potential is there.

We have a group of skilled players returning next year, but the level of play at the point guard position is, indeed, intriguing to contemplate.

Thoughts?

I wouldn't be surprised to see Daquan end up playing more as a 2G. Don't forget about Kamba at PG too. The PG position next year is the one main concern I have. That's not a knock on the guys coming in, we've just got to replace ALOT of production.

I can't say much on EKU, they do have a couple of good young kids and they seem happy with their recruits.

Morehead on paper will be improved. An all OVC guard and 2 improving sophomore forwards along with other contributors plus they had 2 point guards sitting out and the 3 signees look good. In on a couple big men which they need one.

Let me ask, Are there rumblings on McMahon moving on?

Honestly, with all the success coaches have had here and moved on, the rumblings never really stop.

Have we ever had a coach make 2 NCAA Tournaments and stay? Of course he’s gone.

McMahon's stock won't get any higher than right now so I think he's gone and I'm happy for him. I know who should be the next coach (and many here agree) but we better hope someone that isn't playing anymore this season doesn't scoop him up first because his stock is high right now too. I'm not sure he will just sit and wait and hope for us and pass on other opportunities. Plus the new AD probably has no clue who Kane is and may have someone else in mind. It will be interesting to see what happens over the next few months.

I would expect that someone of authority has already informed the new AD of the coach in waiting.

Rest assured he has heard the name James Kane whispered in his ear at least once or 15 times. :D

Unless I'm mistaken the AD is the authority in a coaching hire. I'm not as worried about him not giving Kane a shot, more worried about someone else getting him first.

I wouldn’t worry about that, I’m betting he wants the Murray job as badly as a lot of us want him. :wink:

Not sure why we should remember the name “Andy Kennedy” and sure as hell wouldn’t be happy with him here if that’s where you’re going.

I'll second the no thanks to Andy Kennedy.

Besides, Mama Nancy's deserves better than that.

Andy Kennedy wouldn't have been at Ole Miss for as long as he was if they wouldn't have messed around and won the SEC tournament that one year. Everyone was ready to get rid of him, and they somehow won the tournament which bought Kennedy another few years.

It would make Tennessee's Schiano debacle seem like a PR win.

Why, he is a good coach and we will be hard to do better? Who do you want Pitino?

Kennedy was at Ole Miss for 12 seasons and had 11+ losses in all but one in which he had 9. That may be good enough to wallow in mediocrity in the SEC but it's not good enough for Murray State.

Besides, hiring SEC washouts to lose double digit games every season is more of a WKU thing.
