Posted by: AeroCane | March 30, 2021 at 04:21 AM I'd rather give him another year than have Fake Lames attempt to hire a replacement since he'll fail at that like he does every football hire. My favorite part about this offseason; Chris Lykes assuming he had a pro future for all of two days before he realized, or more likely got clued into the fact, that gimpy ankled midgets have no pro futures in basketball. Somehow this is the coaches fault though...

https://www.cbssports.com/college-basketball/news/gonzaga-vs-history-what-the-undefeated-zags-are-up-against-as-they-enter-the-ncaa-tournament-at-26-0/ Only the basketball team is capable of pulling this trick off; "Winner: Miami becoming a likable underdog The biggest upset of the day in major conference postseason play went down in the ACC when Miami, the 13 seed, upended 5 seed Clemson 67-64. The Hurricanes have been gashed by injuries and misfortunes all season -- they played with just six scholarship players! -- so to see them oust a surefire tourney team at less than full strength showed some serious mettle (and reflected quite poorly on Clemson). Miami's got a long road ahead to ACC title contention -- with Georgia Tech standing in its way next -- but this team is a fun, plucky underdog with heart and hustle that already has two wins in the ACC Tournament under its belt. So long as Isaiah Wong keeps his hot streak rolling (he's scored 20 points in consecutive games), this team's got a shot at serving as spoiler." No indication as to which author of this they won over but they got at least one of them converted. Not sure why no one wants to admit Herenton has a scholarship for multiple seasons now while he finds himself in the rotation legitimately still but media keeps denying that fact for better copy is my guess?

Good luck in the tournament assuming it's finally played Clemson, enjoy the season series win but UM got the one that matters when there was no choice but to come up with it. Sometimes it's just not your year but this one isn't finished yet. Depth would be nice to have in twenty four hours but you go with what you have so it's been entertaining near the end at the very least.

Gritty performance with a former walk on in the rotation today by the men's basketball team to put together their two best halves of play in months when it matters. Clemson has had their number this season but UM has played them tough in both losses so maybe they put it together one more day in a row to stay alive another round? Stranger things have happened . . .

Three losing seasons in a row, but only one was unexpected and an outright disappointment. Another of those in a row in four losing seasons consecutively will mean change is way overdue for the basketball team however . . .

Preseason poll had UM finishing right in the middle at 7th, reality has them playing in the bottom of the barrel invitational to end the regular season. Since the AD would blow the replacement hire I'm ok with a coaching for the job season in '21-'22, no reason Beverly, Wong, Timberlake, Waardenberg and a talked into returning Miller with an improved Walker and whatever they can get out of Gak as the short rotation can't stay healthy enough to get to the NCAA tournament. Maybe they find a productive post prospect to add in the mix and really flex that depth by going eight whole scholarship players deep for a while?

According to the complete morons in the sports info department in this image https://canespace.typepad.com/.a/6a00e008c672588834027880170025200d-pi the 1989 football team was garbage and should look up to the 1999 football team. No wonder Fake Lames is still employed.

"Incredible gutsy performance by the basketball team to cut that 30 point halftime deficit to a final margin of only 27 points." There, saved the pathetic apologist the need to post a pathetic post.

This blob could be way worse, it could be about the men's basketball team instead of the decades of irrelevance of the football team now.

Exactly how many different ID's do you need to talk to yourself on here again? There used to be some guy who described it best with the iconic phrase of, "Sad."

Nobody thinks it's "fun" to defend an employee of the athletic department, unless they're being paid by the same athletic department to do so. But good to see the apologist supports replacing Fake Lames anyway. "Posted by: 58 Straight | January 26, 2021 at 11:47 PM" Oh you. For the record, I'm in the camp of wait until this season is officialy over, and for all intents and purposes it ended this last month sure, evaluate where they finish and then decide if Laranaga is coaching for his job next year or not at that point. But again, no moves will be an improvement until the AD position is filled by a competent evaluator of staff.

John Scheyer might need to cut his teeth as the top guy somewhere else first but would be intriguing. Mike Miller might need the same seasoning but would be an interesting outside the box hire. What is Battier doing right now? Assistant coach for the Heat? (Looked it up, player development and analytics director for them, eh, maybe.)

Out of those two, I'd lean towards Ford since he had a better run in the Big 12 last time he was in a power conference as a coach. McDermott's value of post play, and the fact he played the five at about the same height as I used to play the same spot on the floor, appeals to me personally more. His son could fill the bucket up with points too when he was in college and was amazing to watch. Both would be quality replacements if a move was made though, which is why Fake Lames wouldn't look once at either of them.

Posted by: AeroCane | January 26, 2021 at 11:09 AM Which is what I assumed, you don't have any plan to improve it, just want to complain. Pretty weak argument for a change then, ijs. "Posted by: CGNC | January 26, 2021 at 03:12 PM" Fake Lames would hire the assistant coach who ran practice in a manner that impressed him the last time he bothered to shove his head in the gym for five minutes during it. So in that case: Caputo wouldn't be an improvement but that's who you'd get. Nowhere close to a Mark Few type of hire.

The useless over promoted peter principle ticket distributor is a way bigger problem than the basketball coach right now. Usually if you want a head coach firing it's customary to at least suggest a realistic replacement who would be an improvement too, unsurprisingly, none are being offered yet . . .

Olsen probably in the Hall of Very Good as a lock as a pro. Very similar to Clinton Portis in the NFL.

Posted by: FireCoachL2021 (fka nemo2020) | January 18, 2021 at 07:31 PM So, just so I know where the expectations are set, exactly where should UM basketball be in the ACC for you to decide it's not the coaching that's the problem with the program? Because they're not obviously underachieving playing for the current regime and have been stuck on seven scholarship players for a few years due to injuries, which pandemic conditions aren't going to help alleviate at all? (The Pimp's old time story hour is the most annoying thing about the program right now though, on that I agree even when I like the story he's busy telling, he should spend more time talking about what he wants and expects from his current roster than talking about a time he faced a coach decades ago in a smaller league, but he's in the upper echelon of career wins so what good is it getting there if you don't get to throw a tale out from the journey now and then too?)
