    I think he will be somewhere between 10-20. It’s a wide range but the coaching staff could do a lot of different things in the frontcourt.

    I didn't say you expected him to have as big an effect. I said if Nze's impact is even close to Clarke's impact, we will be appreciably better this upcoming season than what I'm expecting.

    I have a real hard time seeing how AT is going to add much more on the offensive end than last last year unless he has changed his shooting form and practicing by putting up a 1,000 shots a day. Last year opponents simply did not respect him as an offensive threat which allowed defenders to cheat into the paint. I know I’m in the minority but he has to be considerably more than what he showed last year for Butler to excel.

    I think AT is a winner. I trust that his work with Joey and on his own will help his offensive game take a big step forward. Simply put, it needs to.

    Defense was MIA last season. On a team that was as soft as a baby's ass, AT was the exception. BU has plenty of scorers. His primary function is to distribute and play defense. Expect that to continue.

    I expect AT to take a nice little step forward and take 2-3 3's a game and make 1-2 of them, when they back off of him, and drive right past them for a layup or pass to a big for a dunk when they come out to guard him. He was able to get to the rim almost at will last year with teams backing off of him, so if they have to come out and guard him out there it will be huge! (Hope the 3 line being a little further back doesn't effect that very much, but it's all a guess right now.)

    I expect a lot from him and hope he starts to get a little ref respect also this year. He had a lot of phantom fouls called on him just for being in-front of guys that usually blow by other defenders!

    So true. He was the one guy on the team that actually put real effort in to staying in front of his man, and got burned by refs on numerous occasions for standing his ground. Not saying every foul he committed was illegitimate (far from the case), but it's almost like the refs were so used to defenders just giving way for a guy to waltz down the lane that they didn't know what to do when a guy actually got cut off o_O.

    If all else fails, at least we know now we won’t be the worst team in big east for years to come

    Do you think the extension is more for the mountain of losses he's amassed or for being linked to numerous recruiting improprieties?

    Amazing, DePaul has given up! Why possibly would they Leitao an extension?

    Maybe we should trade Title for cash to their message board so he can “reason” with their folks.

    Title is being questioned by NCAA officials about his relationship with Nike jockstraps

    It has to be due to their magical run to the CBI finals this past year.
