    There’s a third option but nobody wants to hear it.

    If BE supports Dave then let's see an extension after this season is over or before. You wanna talk the talk then walk the walk Bradford Edwards.

    If the third option has anything to do with injuries, then, yep, I don't want to hear it. Part of recruiting is roster management. Having zero depth because of injuries is a part of that. If I were to look on the bright side, I would say that many guys this year have had to take on increased roles and that will benefit us next year, but I can't say that with a straight face given what I've witnessed the past 5 years. Guys playing well in an increased role and then regressing the next year. It's the number one reason I'm just not very hopeful for next year.

    I tend to agree with this but for different reasons. Year in year out the middle of the pack A10 is such a dogfight I think it really doesn’t matter where you are picked/end up outside of the bottom 4 top 3-4. We’ve seen so many times seeding come down to tie breakers/1 game. The difference between 9-5 most years so minuscule it really doesn’t matter. This year seems like the first year we didn’t have a 4 team logjam at 5th or 6th place.

    I don’t really think this is accurate but I don’t care enough at this point to argue about it.

    The injuries hurt, yes, but that still doesn’t excuse the lack of a starting 5. Even if everyone is healthy, that just means a logjam at the 2 and 3 spots and no depth at the 4 and 5 spots.

    Rumors that UNCW is going to the young Keatts coaching tree by naming his assistant Siddle.

    What if you are a school who was waiting for their season to end before letting their coach go. How long to do you wait until you announce that decision, two weeks?

    Why wait. Hopefully we, I mean they, pull the trigger immediately to get the jump on the market. Don’t want to pull a TOC and have to go looking for a coach after all the hot prospects were already locked up.

    I would pull the trigger now while everyone is to busy worrying. You won’t get the potential backlash (talking general terms, and not specifically DP)

    Watching the Mason vs St Joes game. So far Mar looks pretty good! I think Mar plays better with his back to the basket. He looked like a star his freshman year when paulsen used him as a center. Obviously he’s not a center, but he should be Wilson’s replacement off the bench.

    It is definitely frustrating that he is hitting the off court bonuses primarily.

    I'm beginning to wonder if all they want is a nice team of nice kids that graduate to represent the university or if they really want to win. The first is nice, but it'd be nice to win and be competitive too. I am probably just being a skeptical/miserable fan by asking that.

    The next 12-18 months will really tell us once again what the program is going to be.

    eh donations already WAY down. they will be even worse if we stay not competitive in league. If AJ transfers and Paulsen stays I am out until we find a new coach. They can kiss my couple grand per year goodbye. Not a lot but obviously I am not the first to do so thru reading their own data.
