Glad many of you have positive comments posted here for EA to read!
I will be surprised if UNC gets much more than a slap on the wrist. They seem to be able to slither out of situations like this one.
Holt and staff just need to keep recruiting hard and they need to get on the court this fall/winter and get this team to the tourney. Geez he has only been on the job two months.
If this happens a year or two or three from now I am real concerned. Now , not so much even though it is a tough one to take. Its 15 months before he signs a letter. NC has a hearing coming up. Roy Williams is not a young coach. Holtmann might make this program look like a team that's going somewhere this year. Lets see where things stand in a year. The 18 class is much more important to this program right now. Its a blow but lets not throw the towel in just yet.
I am a big fan of Thad also but if D Russ would have been a part of/watched every game from the last two years he would have came to the same conclusion the rest of us have, not that we enjoyed it.
Saw a CBS report that Watson could reclassify to 2017! That would be even better. Way to go coach!
Commit to the home team and play this year!!! Double BOOM! He is a G/F combo. Wonder if this affects Ayala recruitment as he may be more of a PG?
How does an athletic department sit on this information for a month? Good one 2204!!
What's Next you say? Put out an APB to the junior college ranks to find somebody that wants to play here! Now that I have vented here is a thought. Granted, Thad and his staff getting canned now would not be a good thing either. But my thought is how about a well known alum taking over for what is known up front will be an interm basis? I know, I know. Have another beer!
2012 I am with you. This happened a month ago and no one thought that maybe just maybe the public should be informed? In my book that is horse crap. Wonder if anyone outside the immediate players and coaches knew. Bad handle of the situation. Geez what next. Hope we have enough warm bodies to have a team. Better stay healthy!!
Fullback I am wondering the same thing. I would say he has one year to play unless he drops to D2 or 3. Anyway, good luck Mr Bell.
Are you trying to make me feel better? Think its going to be awhile before we see it again.
Looking at the B1G next year, unless there are early exits by non seniors many of the teams do not lose much from the senior classes. That said the league could be good as well next season.
On coaches, I do not disagree that some change may be needed. However, if your a top young coach is a situation such as we have here a good decision????
IP I am aware we got CJ last year from JUCO. I do like him and what he can add to this team the next couple years and I dont intend to rag on him at all. However IMO he, at this time, is not near ready to be the point G on this team if this team is to compete at the top of the league night in and night out. Thus the reason Thad is hot on Mark Smith for the point position plus several others.
Lets hope he does well enough to be the freshman of the year in B1G or at least on all freshman team. With that and some others stepping up their games and maybe a grad transfer/JUCO point guard this team might be in the top half of conference next year. Yes I know, alot of "ifs".
Whats the latest on the NC State job. Thats Miller's alma mater.
Whether it be Thad or some other coach this program needs this kid. Plus he is a point G. Watch the NCAA games. The great teams have great point G's. Watched his dad play for four years at OSU. His dad was all in and all effort. He was tough and never gave in. Was not a great athlete or physically gifted but was absolutely a guy you wanted on the court as long as he could play. If son is from same mold, lookout as he has skills.
Zeke got to the rack so easy and the BB team couldn't get there against Rutgers! Sorry in advance for the bad joke. Don't kick me to the curb!
Maybe there is a rule of no bid if you play on first day of B1G tourney!
Might be the best thing to happen to them. Need to start now with a better focus and attitude for next year, coaches and players included.
If it is all at a possiblility then Thad better make it happen especially if it brings Mark Smith given that he plays point guard. Do nothing and have another marginal year and he is giving the same speech Groce gave yesterday.
Given the struggles, IMO, of the point play this year I wish we could have hung on to Harris. He was small but his ball handling and ability to drive the into the defense would have/could have made this offense work much better. But, apparently, he was not buying in either.
Probably shouldnt go but likely will. And it may be a good move for both him and team. Personally I think a lot of his foul issues was conditioning. Seemed to tire easily to me. But he made a lot of progress last two years. Thanks for your effort TT.
Tress fired, football program on probabtion, a 6-6 season and reputation of Athletic program soiled. Just some thoughts that come to mind. Hmmm.
Dude helped to screwed up Tressell career here. Still do not like his ass at all on any team. Tattoogate! I would like to see him out of football for his antics while a buckeye.
85 yards through the heart of the south!!!!! Oops wrong sport. Let me guess. Sprinter?
Hey. I would assume everyone that wants Thad gone would love another opportunity for the team to fall on its face and thus another ugly loss and another nail in the coffin.
