Re: The Doldrums

Also, I believe that our sole transfer, Cierra Walker may have visited Gonzaga which would make sense if she wants to be closer to home. I am really hoping that there might be a chance that she could decide to still return to Vandy. She tweeted today that Gonzaga is her "new home", so it's apparent...

Re: The Doldrums

I'm pretty much out of the loop completely, so I can't help out with any info, other than to say that this time of year -- between graduation and the arrival of the team back on campus for the summer term has always been the slowest time of the year, even slower than the period of time between the e...

Re: Princeton's Courtney Banghart hired at UNC

She was one of the 3 finalists here (Niele Ivey being the third). At the time, I heard that Banghart had withdrawn her name from consideration, but whether that is true and if so whether that happened after the handwriting was on the wall that she wouldn't be the first to be offered the job. In any ...

Re: Kellie Harper returns to UT

In her playing days she was Kellie Jolly. I don't think she'd be on the list of anyone's list of best basketball players of all time, but she was an important part of some very successful teams. She had a lackluster tenure at NC State. Wes Moore, her replacement there, has had a much better run the...

Re: Transfer Portal thoughts

Why wouldn't players put their name in the transfer portal? They can with no negative outcome, and it leaves to the door open for more options if they do not resonate with the HC decision. I am surprised all the current players haven't done it, frankly. Am I missing something? Steve I didn't know a...

Re: Cierra Walker in Transfer Portal

Since the "Transfer Portal" is a new thing, I looked for info and found this, straight from the horse's mouth: http://www.ncaa.org/sites/default/files/di-saac-notification-transfer.pdf It says that if a player enters the portal (this sounds rather like Ready Player One to me), the NCAA itself doesn'...

Jeff Waltz will be in talks for new coach at UT and Holly to be offered an athletic department job. If so, we got our Knoxville win just in time.
It makes sense from the UT POV, but why would Jeff Walz be interested in going to UT? Seems to me like he's got a good thing going at UofL.

Re: Vanderbilt student paper calling for Becky Hammon to be next HC

I think the student writer made as good a case as could be made, but I don't see any reason to think why she would be interested in jumping in to a head coach position in college. And I don't see any reason to think that a coach who's never coached in college, much less men's college basketball, wou...

Re: ESPN Blows it..............

I know that is a tactic but usually one that a veteran, proven coach gets by with. Also, hers seems to be done to cast blame on poor performance on the players and not to motivate. It seems to fit with the fact that I have never heard her accept responsibility for results in an interview. She may h...

Re: ESPN Blows it..............

. . . She at one point told her players she was sick of coaching them and walked out of practice. So contrary to what you were implying based the response of one poster that did not reveal the inside information, she had indeed been a real pain and disappointment for VU. You have to be pretty arrog...

Re: Big Orange goes down and maybe coach too

Looks like they may be looking for a new coach at the big orange country as she got beat by UCLA in the 1st round. Who knows, but getting beat in the first round as a #11 seed is a different kettle of fish than 10 years when Ball State beat them when they were a #5 seed. That was pretty shocking at...

Re: How much longer does ADMT give CSW?

Say what you will about their W/L records, White's team showed definite improvement as the season progressed. Drew's team went the opposite direction. CONQUER!!..., and PREVAIL!!! I'd say yes and no to the improvement. In the UT game, and to some extent in the loss at Miss State, I thought they sho...

Re: How much longer does ADMT give CSW?

Her leash must be pretty short at this time. I'd come to the conclusion that she should get another year, but Turner's action today shows that he's not afraid to pull the trigger. Making the WNIT would be a step in the right direction, so if she gets the team there, she probably gets at least one mo...

Re: Another anchor dropped

8 on roster now not counting, I guess, a preferred walk on, 7 commitments for 2019 brings scholarships to limit. 4 rising seniors next season including Fasoula. So in two years there will be 11 first and second year players. After a possible five years of a new regime we will still probably be the ...
