This is a bit loaded. Are you concerned Myles won't sign the early LOI in November and bail in April if PSU doesn't make the tourney (which I would not say as an absolute, they will have a decent chance)? Because this post has pulled me in like 5 or 6 different directions in terms of what you could possibly be thinking here.

That is one of the additional rumors that have been swirling as to why. That does not really fit Cael though, he's usually been pretty flexible with guys wanting to switch weights. Heck, there was rumored controversy surrounding Bo Nickal last year moving up to 184, but Cael let him do it. If Suriano can't stay at 125 healthily, then it's irresponsible to let him compete. As much as Cortez or Keener could figure into plans at 133, it doesn't make sense to hold back Suriano imo since he has more potential to place high than those 2.

This is my gut feeling as well with re: to something going on behind the scenes. There have been a few rumors as to why Suriano may be looking to transfer, however, they never seemed to hone in on any one in particular. Instead of unfairly speculating on the "why," I decided to omit it.

We are, hopefully, 3 years from Carr, Stevens and Watkins leaving. We will have a really good idea if Pat can sustain recruiting success by that time (2018 and 19 will see as many as 5 or 6 openings over that time). Also, if Pat is still our coach by the time our current core leaves, then that would show he is capable of some level of success. He isn't surviving 3 more seasons if we don't play well.

Then the quandary becomes, is this team better and growing because of the core 4, or has Chambers really turned the corner?

I don't really understand this line of thinking. Coaches can't win without players, if we have players that can lead us and are improving, then that's a positive reflection of Chambers.

Well, part of our issues in basketball for years were tied to Tim Curley, for sure. He had no interest in investing in the program. Pat has made huge in-roads into Philadelphia and the DMV, but he doesn't get to keep his job forever without some on court success.
