Examining the carcass.....looking for a phoenix

Well, the loss to Western Michigan in the NIT on Monday night was a disappointing end to a frustrating season. 'Nuff said.

Todd Rosiak pens an honest assessment of MU's season here, though I'd argue that he's underestimating MU's returning big men as he assesses next year. If anything, MU had more questions about inside play coming into '04-'05 than the team will have in '05-'06. And with the influx of four talented guard and wing players, MU's overall talent level will be greater next season than it was in the recently competed campaign. But, with the depth of the Big East, MU might have a better team next year -- but will the record improve?
