Re: The Coaching Carousel 2017

Has keeping a coach always been THIS dangerous?? We lose we want him gone, we win and he (possibly) wants to be gone, maybe that's why Baron stuck around for so long. Dan don't forget about this... Yes, this has been the story since I started following the program in the late 80's...Success come wi...

Re: The Coaching Carousel 2017

I assume TBR means pony up. Wichita State pays their coach $3.3m! I know that is extreme but it looks like the going rate is $2m+ now for the top coaches. I believe the $1m we are paying Hurley still puts him in roughly the top 75 highest paid coaches. In fact according to this $1m would have put yo...

Re: Thoughts from Sacramento

I may be biased, but from the games I attended the Rhody fans were by far the best (really not even close). Always engaged and on their feet encouraging the team on. One of the first things I did when I got home last night was to watch the Creighton game, and you could see the players engaging with ...

Name recognition would be nice. On my flight back from the tourney I was talking with what little voice I had left to the young lady seated next to me, and I told her that I was at the Tourney. She says "Oh, I went to Creighton, they were in the NCAA tournament, but they lost to Providence.&quo...

Re: NCAA Tournament Impact on Rhody Men's Basketball Program

This does pertain to the topic at hand, as that we can hopefully look forward to snubs like that (real and imagined) ending.

But all the things mentioned here will only happen with sustained success...if we don't go back for another 5+ years momentum will be lost.

Re: CBS is showing us some serious love!

While the positive pub is good, I would prefer Hurley being able to play the disrespected card in the locker room. But Fordham may be enough of a reminder in the locker room.

Re: 2017 Atlantic - 10 Tournament - Pittsburgh

This is a nice development. As I said in another thread I hope it goes to OT and VCU wins, then we win tomorrow. That would be the best of both worlds...good for us and the A10, as the A10 would then most likely get 3 in.

So let me get this straight...they don't give heavy weight to your RPI anymore when determining if you should be in the tourney...BUT they give heavy weight to the RPI of the teams you played to see if you beat top 100, 50 and 25 teams...So your own RPI that says you are the X best team in the count...

Re: 2016-2017 RPI watch

True, almost every team lays an egg, but when you are solidly in or out, it's just a loss ...but when you didn't take care of business earlier and are on the "bubble" it's magnified and potentially fatal.
