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

With both of our basketball teams at rock bottom, I'm sad to say that March Madness has lost a lot of its appeal for me.

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 ...

Re: Another anchor dropped

Despite such a difficult season, it is nice to know that we are still reeling in recruits. It has been reported that Emily Bowman, a 6'5 post from Huntsville, AL verballed to us and looks set to join Bella LaChance in our 2020 class. She plays for a really strong AAU program (Southern Starz) that f...

Re: What's wrong with a free Master's Degree?

nm Not a thing. It's just not necessarily a choice that everyone would make, and even if student athlete does, it's not a given that they'd choose to pursue their masters at Vanderbilt. Once that bachelor's degree is in hand, it becomes possible to transfer without sitting out for a year. Since tha...

Re: Mike Neighbors

Whit there is huge excitement here in Fayetteville about Mike Neighbors. He and staff have also been out in community re building support. The prior administration treated Blair badly and Nolan Richardson was all that mattered. I don't know if this attachment thing will work, but I'm trying to atta...

Re: Mike Neighbors

Speaking of Arkansas, Mechelle Voepel made a good point on twitter: 'There is a fan base that's been waiting to be re-energized for @razorbackWBB. Fans were very engaged during coach Gary Blair's best years there, and Fayetteville will get behind the Hogs again as Mike Neighbors continues to build t...

Re: Mike Neighbors

So, Arkansas coached by Mike Neighbors beats Texas A&M, coached by former Arkansas coach Gary Blair, to set a final against Miss State, coached by Vic Schaeffer, former assistant to Gary Blair at A&M. First ever SECT final for Arkansas. After 3 coaches after Blair left, maybe they finally got it ri...

Re: Beginning of the end

Whit, you should feel blessed that you can foresee a path to optimism. Right now, I just can't. Wow, I didn't think that post was optimistic! :lol: Haha...no, it wasn't optimistic, but I envy the fact that you can see the possibility of feeling optimistic in the future. I think it is an indication ...

Re: Mike Neighbors

Nine conference wins in 3 years: 4,3,2 not sure what kind of look that is. Beating probably the worst UT team in the Pat Summitt + Holly era gave some glimmer of hope and enthusiasm only to be canceled by the “low energy” effort against Bama. (Athletic website description) It did give me a glimmer ...

Re: Mike Neighbors

I was told directly that the search committee makeup was done as a save your a** response to the anticipated pushback from CMB. When decisions are made from fear there rarely are good results. Plus the committee decided that they would not entertain interviews from any male applicants—ADDW was goin...

Re: Mike Neighbors

As far as optics maybe they will “see” the error of their pc ways. Hindsight is always clearer than foresight. At the time of the hiring quite a few VandyMania fans were pretty excited about the hire. Not so much now, to say the least. And in this case, an entirely different set of eyes is overseei...

Re: Mike Neighbors

What was the gender makeup of that “search committee” three years ago ? Arkansas players looked genuinely excited and happy to be playing for their coach and teammates. Don’t see that much on 25th Avenue South. That's what winning will do for you. Our team looked genuinely happy and excited, includ...

Re: Beginning of the end

Feel like I did in Balcomb’s last few years: if nothing changes, nothing changes. Or as Einstein said, you can’t solve a problem with the same process that created it (or words to that affect). One significant (IMO) difference is that MB had gotten the team to the NCAAs for 12 straight years before...

Re: Beginning of the end

I'd hoped that we'd be able to extend the season for one more game for just more little bright spot, but I wasn't surprised when it didn't happen. Even though the program has been going in the wrong direction (5 SEC wins in MB's last two years, 4 in SW's first, then 3, then 2), I expect that SW will...

Re: VU - Bama SEC Tourney Thread

I'm not near a TV, just listening on the radio, and Charlie pretty much went ballistic about the 4 ORs, and I certainly don't blame him.
