Re: Men's Basketball Coaching Search

Lutz stated on DG show that App is looking at a younger candidate. $&@+ ! Where has “younger” gotten us recently? I’d take proven winner over little boy with potential any day right now. Especially when the geezer apparently really wants to be here. In fairness, this could be taken out of context. ...

Re: Men's Basketball Coaching Search

Per HoopDirt: Early names at Appalachian State include Gardner-Webb head coach Tim Craft, Presbyterian head coach Dustin Kerns, and Campbell head coach Kevin McGeehan. Yikes. All of these are Big South coaches which is interesting. Tim Craft would be my vote of the three listed. I'm not entirely su...

Re: Fox fired

In my opinion, and it makes me sad, this will be a tough job to fill. Reality bites. It’s been 9 years since we were in the finals and I think that’s the ONLY time in the 19 since we last made NCAA. And only twice dancing in 47 years. While there are other of the 350 D1 basketball school worse, tha...

Re: Fox fired

Considering our record the past five years, the fact that he's recruited many of our players could also be a good argument for not retaining Allison. That makes no sense whatsoever considering the talent has improved practically every year. But the record didn't improve. That's the first thing they...

Re: Fox fired

I think salary is important to note here for the next hire. I’ll probably need someone to provide factual accuracy of past salaries, but our budget for this position is typically in that $150-250k range and nothing to me suggests that it’ll be anything substantially different than that. As great as ...

Re: MBB in SBC Tourney Round 1: Apps @ ULM 8 PM ESPN+

I’m sorry for Ronshad as he’s clearly one of the most talented players to have ever played for this program.

Now that he season is over, it’s time to formally move on and start fresh. I trust DG will make the correct decision.

As always, Go App!

Re: New Hire

I actually think the reasoning for hiring Fox (taking a proven assistant from a mid major with pedigree that was young and hungry for his shot) was the right approach. Just the wrong guy.

I think targeting a coach from the same type of background will be what happens again.

Having your weekend starters all as Freshman & Sophomores should prove to be an awesome foundation for improvement the next couple years. All three guys seem talent...

Re: Saint Louis game debacle

I agree with most that winning will solve some of the attendance issues and I think most would agree that the winning part of the equation won't come from Fox. Fox has done some good things here. The Capel era here was an unmitigated disaster there is no getting around it. It took Fox a couple of ye...

Re: Time for Change with App State Basketball

Fox has to go. It’s been evident for some time now. We all wanted it to work out when he was hired, but at this point the ceiling of the program under his care has been realized.

I know that the buyout is a tough hurdle to cross, but it’s necessary in order to move the program forward.

Re: MBB: App State at S.Alabama 8PM Tonite Mobile

Shabazz and Forrest shot 29 field goals combined (made 10) and the other 9 guys that played went a collective 17-26. Only 16 assists as a team.

Need to move the ball wayyyy more than we are. It’s a 2 vs 5 game at times.

RealTimeRPI has App going 1-10 in the next six weeks. If that happens, hands to keys to Allison.
Are you suggesting hand the keys to Allison to finish the year out or hand the keys to Allison to be the new coach?

Re: Time for Change with App State Basketball

Couldn’t begin to provide a list of names or suggestions to take over that are realistic/viable, but I imagine that App would be an attractive program for coaches looking to get their break. The Football brand is extremely strong right now which can help draw recruits and North Carolina is basketbal...
