I like both our talent and personality better than in 2004-07. Yeah, we had some down years, especially 2005. But from 1995-2004, there was barely a down year.In fairness, though, UConn was not so great the season before Tina arrived or in her freshman season. I think Geno has more to work with than he did 2004-07, but to be squarely in the hunt for the NC rather than marginally so, we're going to need to see nearly across-the-board improvement from a year ago or giant leaps forward for a couple of girls. Could happen, hope it happens, but until it does, #6 isn't a bad spot to put UConn. We won't have long to find out whether that ranking is appropriate with Stanford only two weeks away!
I expect leaps from all the starters plus some help from Caroline. The frosh look very, very good, especially the one wearing #23. Too optimistic? Dunno.
Yeah, if we have 3 losses on January 1, I'll need to reassess. If we have 0, others may need to.
