Re: Avoid Like the Plague

Should have been McMahon all along....if not in 2009 or 2010, definitely in 2014. Of course, he might have turned the job down in 14, when Fox was hired. Oh well

Re: MBB: App State @ CCU 2 PM HTC Center, Conway, SC

I don’t know if Fox is really focused as much on showcasing Shabazz as people think, but if he is then he’s doing a bad job of it. Agreed- I don't really get the line of thinking that the problem is that Shabazz is being groomed for the next level. I don't see it. Nobody looks good right now. Howev...

Re: MBB: App State @ CCU 2 PM HTC Center, Conway, SC

I’m at the Radford vs UNCA game. The Highlanders move the ball well, get lots of easy interior buckets and dunks, and play great defense with active hands. If they can do it with what I assume is a pretty small budget, we can too. Yeah Radford is good right now, definitely would be a guy to look in...

How about Jason Williford, associate head coach at UVA. He’s spent 10 years as an assistant at Virginia, though, so he might be too good for us.

Re: MBB: App State @ CCU 2 PM HTC Center, Conway, SC

That's exactly the same score Stephon Marbury and GT started out against us back in '95 in Bobby's Return to Boone. Deja vu all over again. That team quit on Tom Apke (to be fair he quit on them too) and this team has quit on Jim Fox. Yep, that game was my introduction to App State basketball as a ...

Re: Avoid Like the Plague

wonder if Pat Kelsey would consider us, or would it be too much of a lateral move from Winthrop? Someone mentioned that he wanted the job back around the time when Buzz or Capel was hired, when he was an assistant at Wake. So far, the Winthrop admin has done a good job of keeping him in Rock Hill de...

Re: Avoid Like the Plague

I noticed that Matt Matheny's record at Elon in 10 years is only 141-148, and he's 5-14 this year so far (last place in the CAA). We're not the only struggling offshoot from McKillop's tree.

Thinking out of the box: AE has a year left on his contract in Toronto. CFL salaries average in the 90k range. Could we offer to buy out his last year and lure our GOAT to come back home and be WR coach.....if Adams leaves?
Assuming he would be a good coach?

Again, when does a mid major coach from a weak conference ever get canned mid-season?

Re: Time for Change with App State Basketball

How often to mediocre or less than mediocre basketball coaches from weak programs with no history get canned mid-season? I don’t know that I’ve seen it happen.

Re: MBB: Tx Arlington @ App State 7 PM HCC APPVISION

Meanwhile, Ga Southern makes sportscenter for their last second shot to beat ULM, and Matt McMahon’s Murray State squad makes it for an insane dunk. I was going to keep espn+ through b-ball season, but I don’t think I want to pay a monthly fee in order to torture myself. I’ve unfortunately switched ...

Re: Time for Change with App State Basketball

I spoke to Wofford coach Mike Young at the socon tournament last year and mentioned that I loved seeing his teams play because of the way they play. His only comment was “thanks, we try to not make it too difficult.” He also seems to be pretty positive and down to earth and has good rapport with his...

Re: MBB: Tx Arlington @ App State 7 PM HCC APPVISION

I have trouble understanding how an outlet pass to one of our better scorers who immediately pulls up for the three is an offensive strategy. I'll admit to knowing very little about basketball other than what I learned playing the game in junior high and what I learned from some very fine coaches o...

Re: MBB: Tx Arlington @ App State 7 PM HCC APPVISION

UTA is doing well what we are bad at....defense, boxing out, and ball movement, hence, their 5’9” guys scoring on our 6’5” guys and their 6’5” guys scoring on our 6’9” guys. What happened to our rebounding advantages we had last year? I never imagined this team would be this bad.
