    That is very true. My biggest issue with Bobby Big fish is that we do not win enough and out scheduling sucks.

    And in reality, he's about where he belongs (for now). I'd like to see him back at UL helping with recruiting... but I don't see a likely path back for him.

    managing 10 players is different from 80-90 to manage. Marlin has killed BB!

    Come on! Killed? I like the path Marlin and the B-ball team are on. Good players coming in with a challenging schedule this year. It's gonna be a lot of fun this year in the dome!

    I completely disagree. This programs fan base is gone, depleted. Excitement must be generated with the next hire to bring some of those people back. Yes, he must be able to coach and recruit as well.

    Splash only works on press conference day. If we'd hire Les over a competent coach bc it was a splash I'd quit and focus on baseball.

    Hire the best coach regardless of name. Wins will bring more fans than a splash ever would.

    You're wrong imo. We need a really good coach. A guy who can outcoach the opposition. We done need another ra ra name guy.

    Only 1 person can be a great head coach...you have 130 other options on the team to find a ra ra guy...you can have several on each side of the ball

    Basketball hasn't been caught cheating. Cal the NCAA sanctions did far more damage than the actual loss of numbers. There's now very effective negative recruiting going on against UL.

    I don't think our next coach is getting a guaranteed seven figure contract.

    As for me I'm not in favor of hiring someone for six figures that I wouldn't be willing to hire for seven figures. IOW if I'm not willing to pay candidate A seven figures I'm not giving him six unless experience dictates the lower figure.

    Additionally Les isn't working for six.

    Hiring Les would be a lot like Ditka by the Saints. A complete fail.
