The Central (CIAA) is up to six active coaches and six sims. However, there are only three
worthwhile openings this season:
- It's been over 40 seasons since this team had a human coach, but it is time for another to take over. The school will return 8 seniors with one very good junior PG. One can easily see a starting lineup of Gates
, & Winter
winning the Central"s South Conference. Two junior's schollies may need to be rescinded, but this zone team can afford at least one walkon and still win. Feldman
might even return for his 5th season the year after. Simai wouldn"t put him on the court, but he should earn some minutes over the next two seasons, The only cog that may need to be found is a perimeter player that can knock down a trey off the bench.
- In my mind, this program is now primed to be rebuilt into a D2 power. j000 brought in a couple freshman that will at least be very strong contributors over the next 3 seasons, Brown
should also return to contribute, and, 1st Team All-Conference PG, Schaeffer
should return for a 5th season and be a star player. The big opportunity is provided by that B prestige (probably to drop to B- on a move up from D3) and those 8 open schollies. One would probably want to take 6 strong freshman (handing one a redshirt), one JuCo or transfer student to play center this season and accept a walk-on, but this is the kind of opportunity that makes building a dynasty fun.
- I missed this one at first glance, but this post could be a true surprise team. Ten upperclassmen will return - 5 seniors and 5 juniors. Its highest rated player, Peter Carter
, will be a junior and Wesley Williams
, a junior, will have 3 seasons of eligibility remaining. Two walk-ons will move-on and it is likely that Hoeft
will need to be administered the old heave-ho to provide 3 openings to fill this season. This team could win 20 next season and slide into the PI tourney, if not the NT.
