We play Memphis Thursday at 3 PM . Let's hope Dunleavy and/or Dannen have an announcement by 7 PM.

<. 01 is a kind way of saying no chance. Wish the same odds were on the return of the head coach.

Channelling my inner gbgreenie, complete with his run on sentences and disdain for punctuation:

You are all such negative nellies of course the team has looked soft this seasonbut you must trust Coach Dunleavy's motivational process as he has the entire world believing that we are not good enough to win a single conference game in the AAC and imagine the surprise when we win this tournament and get to the elite 8 in the NCAAs so ROLL WAVE and win win win

You know, the AAC would probably be pissed to no end if we were to knock off the host team in the opening round.

They would, as Memphis has been mentioned as a darkhorse to get one of the last bids. They'd have to at least go to the semifinals, probably the finals to make it.

That being said, I think the Wave loses this one by 25 or more. My dream is that Dunleavy announces his resignation in the post game presser.

I'll give Dannen his talking points. "At the time I gave coach a vote of confidence, I thought the team was going to turn it around but after witnessing the 2nd half of the season it appears we were headed in the wrong direction. I thanked Coach Dunleavy for his efforts. Effective immediately, the university will be going after the best basketball coach out there."

As I watched the game. I couldn’t help but focus on something important—why does Memphis still have MSU on their trunks? Didn’t the university drop the “State” many years ago?

Penny played during that era. Graff said it’s their throwback jerseys.

Take whatever Houston said when they fired applewhite. Dannen said he is here to compete for championships, that Tulane judges that by wins and losses and our expectations we to atleast make the nit this year. Pull the F***ing plug

Dannen does lose credibility if he stands pat. Go beg some boosters for more money if the contract is the problem, but we become a laughing stock if we keep Dunleavy. I heard a stat that We have the 2nd worse record in all of D1 college basketball

Mike Young, 19 years at Wofford...good friends with Conroy. We played them at Fogleman. I remember... he’s had some good seasons and some not so good seasons. 298-243 record as a head coach.
