Too many assumptions especially with player development. What if Daniels goes down next year? We lost to too many bad teams this year. Dunleavy needs to be held accountable for that. He’s the highest paid basketball coach in Tulane history and has one of the worst W/L records at this point of any previous coach at this stage in his Tulane coaching career.GreenLantern wrote: ↑Fri Dec 28, 2018 1:43 pmI believe that TD's primary goal is resume building and thus it would require a sure-shot coaching candidate for him to make a change. He can ill afford another hiring error.
From the comments here, I realize that some of you are more optimistic with the current staff, so let me present the following riddle:
With these factors and the current staff, do you believe we will make the post-season next year? How about a winning conference record?
- Assume Sehic and a healthy Embo both return next season (my guess is that we will lose at least one)
- Plan on our two bigs, Koka and Ajang, returning and improving as much for next season as they did from their first to second year.
- Assume our three freshmen Zhang, Crabtree and Wood continue to mature at a typical rate for 2nd year players
- Count on the return of a healthy Caleb Daniels
- Plan on the enrollment of Nobal Days, a very good 3-star PF from Wisconsin
- Realize that our only other commitment is Henri Langton, a JC xfer whose stats this year are as follows: started 7 of 29 games; is shooting 31% from 3pt; FT% is 66%; minutes per game is 12.8; points per game is 5.6; rebonds per game is 2.8
Assume if he wins only 2 or less conference games then what?
