    If we’re only getting 6-8 wins a year in basketball I’m ok if we start cheating again.

    That tells me there’s no chance we actually hire him. A few weeks ago there were rumors from one of the posters here (illini0440 maybe?) that the administration had flat out said no to some of the candidates based on their reputation to work in dark gray. Why would we go from that to a guy that...

    Why in the world do you think this? I know you mentioned before so we could save money. This doesn't hold water for so many reasons. 1) BU would have quit by now if this was a real thing. This creates more stress on the rest of the staff and hamstrings BU going into next year. Moving forward...

    JMHO, but I personally have no problem with gifs when they’re in the flow of the thread. Using a gif to respond to a comment or using it as part of a comment related to the thread - no problem. The celebratory gifs when a recruit commits - no problem. I personally dislike the long posts with...

    Just so I know exactly how delusional you are, how would you have rated OA, Chin and Gentry?

    On the plus side we wouldn’t have to listen to him call games anymore.

    Speaking of dead periods, I feel like there’s been talk in the past of delaying hiring announcements until after the period ends. The thought was the coach could have contact with recruits during the dead period because they’re not officially recruiting for your school if they haven’t signed the...
