    1 for 4 ain’t bad.

    And the only one that is “gone” is only gone from the ACC.

    Well, he got one of those right.

    But it isn't like Pitino retired.

    I'm sure he meant the 2020's...

    Life and time had a way of determining that this prediction was dead-ass wrong.

    I stand by this assessment.

    it's notable to me that many of DR's preferred candidates -- Pat Kelsey, Wojo, Wes Miller -- are diminutive WASPy types like himself

    Totally forgot about this thread. I hate Wojo and am glad he was canned. Thought he might be in trouble when the Hausers transferred.

    What's more troubling is the consistent preference for dook or unc alums. if they're any good, they'll go back to mama and take the alma mater job.

    DR thinks he's the smartest guy in the room but is wrong just as often as he's right.

    We all agree that Kelsey and Miller are good coaches. We all agree that an on campus arena would be nice.

    I happen to think Forbes has a better resume than Wes and will ultimately have more success and the P5 level. I guess time will tell...?

    I award DR 100 points for having the balls to propose Wojo as the guy for our head coach who would have amazing success. However I deduct 75 points for being unequivocally wrong.

    Don't know why we're laughing at DR. Wojo would've been better than Manning.

  16. #196
    Huh? “We” didn’t choose Manning. Picking someone who can outperform a Wellman bball hire isn’t hard.
    Let’s get this done!

    Wojo would have been a great hire for the Deacs for all the reasons I explained well. Of course, the better choice was always Wes.

    My thoughts on these subjects are just mine. Many of you had thoughts too. There's a reason my opinions ended up bothering folks.

    Yeah, that AD who hired Prosser was way better.

    Because you’re an insufferable douche
