Re: Four ACC expansion candidates to replace Fla. ST.

Was listening to WWL radio and Mike and Bobby both said another expansion coming in 2025. Said NC going to the SEC. The league wants them badly. While we all talk primarily about getting an invite from the ACC, I wonder if the Big 12 will stand pat. Even though the Big 12 is at a very stable 16 sch...

Re: Four ACC expansion candidates to replace Fla. ST.

Seeing rumors online that Notre Dame is going to join the Big 10 since conference championships are heavily rewarded in the CFP. I expected the realignment and playoff pressures would eventually get to ND, and it is only natural for them to go to the Big 10. So, the ACC effectively loses another. I...

Re: Going to be a long spring and summer for AD Harris

For Hunter, it is impossible to tell what Harris is thinking. Guerry argued on X with me that Hunter was not all the weaknesses we say here daily. Nobody backed him but nobody backed me. We agreed to disagree, and 3 others liked my posts silently. My gut says that Gibson Hall know Hunters limitatio...

Re: ECU Game Thread

I was only able to watch about 3 minutes of today's game. But in those 3 minutes, on two occasions we brought the ball down and put up a missed 3-pointer--and in both cases there wasn't a single Tulane player inside the 3-point line. As soon as the ball goes up, they all start heading back up-court....

Re: Going to be a long spring and summer for AD Harris

I tend to agree that Harris is not walking in looking to clean house. He's also not going to look at videos of past games and attempt to make some evaluation of what the situation was when he was not here. I think we can all agree that David Harris seems like a measured, deliberate guy who is not g...

Re: Going to be a long spring and summer for AD Harris

To fully appreciate how screwed up our basketball programs are, Harris needs to also go back and look at some tapes from the past three years. In the case of MBB, he needs to understand that Hunter is not going to change anything--the longer we keep him, the longer we just tread water, or sink. Hun...

Re: Going to be a long spring and summer for AD Harris

We need help fast but will we see it? I am hoping that AD Harris has been watching the men's and woman's basketball closely and understands we have serious issues. Sumrall will help open the door to another conference , I am sure of that. We don't need these two programs helping to close it. As far...

Re: SMU Game Thread

The problem that holds HArris back from replacing him is Hunters personality and popularity as a person. The results are looking like they will get much worse as each game sees less motivation and obviously no improvement in tactics. The other teams have already caught on to the game plan so second...

Re: SMU Game Thread

I'm afraid your forecast is highly likely--including Harris' performance benchmarks and requirements around scheduling. If Hunter does get another year, there certainly should be very clear performance measures that he has to meet. And for the reasons stated in my post above, I doubt he'll meet tho...

Re: SMU Game Thread

Unfortunately, I think Hunter will be given the benefit of doubt by a new AD. I suspect there will be a long post-season discussion of where things are lacking and what Hunter's ideas are for fixing them. Harris may also relieve Hunter of total control over the schedule and present him with a true ...

Re: SMU Game Thread

All sadly true but doubt there will be any change by AD Harris. He won 20 games a year ago, has over 500 career victories and took over a team that went 0-18 in conference the year before he started. I, too, want a coach that can take us higher than Hunter's apparent ceiling here. But if we fire hi...

Re: SMU Beats Hunter 87=79

He needs to be fired as soon as this season ends. Anything else is just wasting our time and delaying any chance to really resurrect our basketball program. Our current problems are systemic and recur virtually every game--and that's because they are all coaching related. Hunter is hard-headed about...

Re: AAC #7

The AAC will eventually bubble back up to the clear G5 leader. The reason is money. So long as the AAC is making considerably more TV money than the others, they will be able to hire better coaches, have higher recruiting budgets and get better TV access. It's the reason we were able to hire Sumral...

Re: Memphis Game 2 on Super Bowl Sunday

Another wasted year. It’s been evident for at least the last two years that we are going nowhere with Hunter. A decent win now and then doesn’t change the overall trajectory of this program. We really are in a Jewett type rut. Or maybe it’s best to coin it as a Dannen Rut.
