"might be even more confident in this team than last year"
"perhaps the best drake team since 07-08 when they earned a 5 seed in the NCAA tournament"

I listened to the podcast. These guys seem to have done a little more specific research about our team than some of the other computer analysts out there, although they seem to feel that the transfers will be the primary contributors and that the incoming freshman will not.  Bart Torvik has Drake at 78 for 2023-24; I haven't seen anything from Ken Pom yet. Because Pom, Torvik and NET all use a similar analysis process, they all come out in the same ballpark. I am no fan of these guys but, unfortunately, these numbers get used to both select and seed the NCAA tourney.

They also seem to think that Drake's bench is a weakness.  I actually think this might be the deepest bench DeVries has had yet.

Anyone who puts this team out of the top 10 doesn't know basketball. This is the year of Drake! :)

“This would create more postseason opportunities in men’s basketball, and it would also open up more spots for mid-major schools to play in the NIT.”
And to avoid getting their asses kicked by lowly mid-majors.

+1000  Solid transfers and arguably the deepest freshmen class.  Drake has the experience to allow the freshmen to not feel the weight on their shoulders. 

You all know this, Drake will be as good as the great unknown, DEFENSE!!

Pretty big news that Tucker plans on going all four years. Maybe that’s just talk but he seemed pretty deliberate in his words.

I agree Urby. Very promising the way he said two more years. Only words but it is all we got.

As an aside, Tucker’s voice sounds a lot like Darian’s.

Yeah I came home and my partner was asking me what Drock was saying. She was surprised when I said that’s Tuck!
