Kelvin Sampson

I’ve communicated with several people, including one person that text me at 3:22 pm on Tuesday saying “It’s over for MA”.

The person who said it was over and a couple of others have been optimistic about Sampson coming. That said the source I’m the most confident in, doesn’t think Sampson is coming. Obviously, we’ll know more once Houston is done in the tourney. I would still say it’s fluid.

I certainly hope we are not going down this path without a coach in waiting or solid coach b but we have not demonstrated we are serious for about two decades now.

I’m absolutely certain that’s what they (HY and the BOT) is doing.

NOTICING A TREND

This was a very good Arkansas team…

I have a feeling Yurachek will get this hire right. I’m sure he’s got a list a list of potential coaching candidates, and he’s currently working through the list. Just a gut feeling, but Yurachek will make a hire that everyone will be happy with.

I hope you’re right

“Just a gut feeling, but Yurachek will make a hire that everyone will be happy with.” -
That’s just naive. There is no one everyone would be happy with.

I think Mark Few would be very close

But I don’t think he’s coming
