MA Firing

Postby 40MOH » Tue Mar 26, 2019 4:36 pm

Of course, I’m disappointed but not totally unexpected. Maybe we’ll find the next Chad Morris. I sense a player exodus coming. Be prepared for Pelphrey-like numbers for the next few years at least.

Are you serious? You actually think it’ll get worse now that Mike’s gone? C’mon now. You’re making too much sense

ESPN is reporting Sampson is a candidate. Ok, maybe, if he is really through cheating. We certainly don’t need that.

I'm not here to defend Sampson but would someone please tell me what he did to get in trouble with NCAA?

Sampson 30 years as D1 HC. Mike 17.
Sampson 15 NCAAT (50%), Mike 9 (53%)
Sampson .655 win %, Mike .649
Sampson 4 conference championships, Mike 2
Sampson 5 trips to 2nd weekend of tourney, Mike 2
Sampson 5 losing seasons, Mike 0

If we fired Mike for Sampson, it confirms my fears that HY isn’t in charge, the good ole boys are

He made phone calls at a time he wasn’t supposed to, by the way what he did is now legal, but OU did have to vacate a season in which they won the B12 title

I think this is one year too soon. The team's performance in the NIT and at other times through the season suggest that Anderson may have had a really good team next year, even without Gafford. If it fizzled, then...

It will be sad if we lose a lot of the current crop of young, talented players.

Hasty decision. Anderson deserves better. Hope Hunter doesn't bring any more Texans to the picnic. It's fast becoming University of Anywhere.

I have been a University of Arkansas Athletics supporter for 75 years. Although I may have been a little young at the beginning (~6 when we first moved to Arkansas), I stamp this as the most colossally moronic decision by UA powers that be in my memory (and there have been many). This blows up in one fell swoop one of the most promising classes and the allegiance of the players during the era of our only National Championship, accounting for many if not most of those banners flying in the lofts of the Bud.

This smacks of a ______ _______ too big for his __________ out to cause mayhem.

Adios mis amigos y amigas...

OK, I may not be able to rein in all my support -- maybe Track and Women's sports for now...

I am so disappointed!
