Re: Potential Men’s Basketball Coaches thread

Thankfully we don't have to guess what it would be like if only MD had a healthy PG to lead the team. We also don't have to guess what it would be like if he was able to pair that PG with some NBA level talent. Let's look all the way back to last year when with this threesome of talent, along with a...

Re: Dannen “100% Dunleavy returns” Ed Daniels with the story

what gbg will never address is why was this team terrible last year with a healthy Ona Embo and 2 players that have been invited to NBA camps this year (one drafted as a top 40 player.) This silly excuse that he and TD are giving has already been proven wrong. It makes no difference if MD has a PG. ...

Re: Dannen “100% Dunleavy returns” Ed Daniels with the story

Let’s all calm down a bit. Yes it’s dissapponting to be in a program state where we don’t show MD the door. No I don’t believe we are beholden to him for 3 more years. Nobody ever finishes their contract. MD does have some big time recruits coming to campus this weekend and has some others committe...

Re: Dannen “100% Dunleavy returns” Ed Daniels with the story

“It has never been a question for me,” said Tulane director of athletics Troy Dannen when asked if men’s basketball coach Mike Dunleavy would return for next season. “100 percent,” said Dannen in a phone interview Tuesday night. Tulane is currently on a 12 game losing streak, and is 0-10 in league p...

Re: Dannen “100% Dunleavy returns” Ed Daniels with the story

Then we are in terrible hands with a man that is either afraid to admit a mistake, not smart enough to realize that we are exponentially worse 3 years into this "rebuild", or has negotiated a contract that handcuffs him from making the right choice. Hoping this is setting up a graceful exit for Dunl...

Re: WSU Whips Tulane 77-62

Some bright side news. The new NET ranking system caps a point differential at 10 for a win or loss. So getting blown out isn't hurting as as badly as it could. We move up 2 spots to 292 in the latest rankings by not even covering the double digit spread in our only game of the week. Moving on up....

Re: Mike Dunleavy is now worst of the worst

I'll admit that I don't know what's on his thumb. The lack of acknowledgement that we have 2 years of results of what this coach can do with a PG and some pretty decent talent makes the argument he can make us a winner (if he had these two ingredients) in the future baseless. However, I will agree t...

Re: WSU Whips Tulane 77-62

0-10 in conference. Geez! It's still all about the turnovers...... Swampnik, you only have to look to last year to see that if we had a PG we'd only average 13 TO. per game instead of the 15 we are averaging this year. Those 2 extra possessions would maybe result in at least 1 win. Maybe not. Just ...

Re: WSU Whips Tulane 77-62

another notch in the Dunleavy coaching belt. After a fairly competitive first half, he draws up some killer halftime adjustments that result in one FG in the first 10 minutes of the 2nd half. Those impressive 5 points weren't enough to keep us close. However, I was excited to see the stat/graphic wi...

Re: Mike Dunleavy is now worst of the worst

The bar is already so low at Tulane I have no doubt he’ll be back next year and win 10-12 games which will be considered “improvement” therefore guaranteeing him a 5th year. :o I guess we're beating a dead horse with this thread, and I have doubts about whether there are truly any fans that believe...

If you check, there's only THREE G5s ranked in the top 65. Boise St, UCF and FAU. Boise St and UCF have a track record, FAU signed 32 recruits so their ranking is inflated. In fact, Cincinnati is the ONLY G5 school to sign less than 20 commits and be ranking higher than us.
Nice analysis.

Re: Mike Dunleavy is now worst of the worst

If we give MD another year we will fall into the same trap we did in years 1 and 2 and delay the rebuild another 2 years. Year 1 MD took over a team coming off of a 12 win (3 conf) season that lost Dabney (a career 38% shooter) and Dylan O. He added Ona Embo, Slater and Reyes. He inherited Reynolds,...

Re: Mike Dunleavy is now worst of the worst

I posted an example elsewhere but if you google Dunleavy and Bill Simmons you will find all sorts of hilarious article where Simmons (then a LAC season ticket holder) just ripped MD a new one over and over again. MD was a mediocre NBA coach. His two good runs were with unbelievably talented teams b...

Never really looked or cared previously, but with as bad as MD has been here I was now interested to check out MD's NBA career. We are getting almost exactly what MD did in his last 3 years in the NBA before he resigned. 2008 23-59 (. 280) 2009 19-63 { 231} 2010 21-28 (. 438) - resigned total 63-150...

Re: Mike Dunleavy is now worst of the worst

I really would love to know what is going on inside Dunleavy’s head. Surely he must see the writing on the wall that he was not meant to be a college basketball coach. He just doesn’t have what it takes to succeed on the college level. Quite frankly he has embarrassed himself and the university thi...
