It’s a Philadelphia school with tradition. Great recruiting base. Phil has recruited a few really, really good players (1st round draft picks) recently so there is a precedent for good players to go to SJU. As JonBoy pointed out he relies heavily on senior laden teams vs. balanced recruiting. My outsider’s impression is that SJU operates like it’s the 90’s. You talk about vision and more resources so why shouldn’t SJU be a perennial top team in the conference? I don’t think that a new 10,000 seat facility is needed - just a different approach. Not too many seasons ago SJU was a top 30 team. The bones are there and IMO SJU would be a desirable job for an up and coming HC.What a game that was.
I don't remember this. Can you make the case for why you think SJU should be THE flagship of the conference? Given all of the puffed out chests of many Flyer Faithful and RamNation, I'd be surprised to hear you say this.
