    Tough to compare. The financial windfall from hoops helps them quite a bit I’d think.

    New Coach Thread

    I totally agree he needs to win in March. I also think he’s had some bad luck in those. Off the top of my head -Maybe our best team (Bennimon) was ineligible to compete -Johnny Davis gets shot - Charles Sprains his ankle in the opener last year

    New Coach Thread

    You realize how bad this program was prior to him coming in? I get we want to be in the tournament but there has to be a foundation to get there. Which in my opinion he’s done. Some numbers for you. We started as a D1 program in the ‘79-‘80 season. We’ve had 6 winning seasons prior to Skerry (1979-2011, 32 years). Skerry has also had 7 winning seasons in ~1/3 of the time. Only 1 of those 32 seasons we have had 20 or more wins. PS has done that 4 times. Prior to him coming in we had 16 straight losing seasons. That isn’t easy to turn around. Being on the staff for a couple years I know how hard it’s been to build a winning program with the financial disadvantages we’ve had. But we NEVER won at this rate. It’s obviously not at the level (NCAA tournament) we’d want but when we make the tournament he will be the best D1 basketball coach in school history. Maybe the best if you want to compare him to Vince.

    Go ahead and bash Rob all you want he deserves it. But going after Skerry right now seems like you’re a UD fan. At least let the season start. The glass half empty crap before we even play a game is beyond annoying.

    If you don’t think the AD has a few guys pegged from his ties at previous stops I think you’re kidding yourselves. gonna be a long season…good thing hoops is 6 weeks away

    Future shaping up for 2023-24

    I honestly don’t really care how he does it. I just want the high level talent to keep coming in. I know a bunch of people disagree but I feel like this staff helps guys get better.
  7. You’re not wrong but I just don’t look forward to hearing you say the same thing over and over again for the next 10 weeks.

    I agree! Try something new. get Scott Van Pelt on it! Guy loves the long O. O’s and Natry Bob’s Hon!

    With knowing Conway hasn’t played a ton of live game action in a couple years I’d think they’d schedule an extra scrimmage/exhibition in to get him more live game action. To me it’s all about how this team gels and if they have that same chip on their shoulder. If they come in over confident that they’re just gonna roll over everyone because we had a little taste of success last year they’re going to be shell shocked and the results will be disappointing. They’ve all been saying the right things but let’s hope they prove it starting in November.

    Does that mean he’s no longer on staff or is it an interim opportunity during the off-season?

    I think it’s one extreme or the other 8-3 or 3-8. We’ll see what these transfers are made of once some adversity hits against WVU

    Press Box Interview with Steve Eigenbrot

    I disagree with the give a ways. That’s a short term gain (1 game). There has to be some sort of long term engagement with the fans to keep them coming back. Not just a flash in the pan.

    Let Nick finish his career and we’ll see if that goes to 1-6…

    Top 10 point guards of all time

    Mat, there’s one not here because he never played. But I still believe If Terrance Whiters played with Gary we would’ve made the tournament. He was demolishing Mike Green in practice during his redshirt year.

    Still bothers me MD and Georgetown won’t play us.

    WBB Transfer thread for 2022-23

    Wait, she’s mad about the chair being adjusted??? to me this hire isn’t about keeping a core of players for the short term but building a program for the long term, like the mens program with PS (Right 2012). I get we could’ve kept this current core but that’s thinking short term and a risk for a new AD who doesn’t get to put his thumb on his athletic department, as Mat stated. I think keeping Zach wouldve been a mistake.

    Everything I hear up in NJ has been very positive about Conway and people are sad to see him go. Hope it’s our gain

    I think part of that is some job security. He’s not willing to sell his sole for wins and put the program in a situation like the one he started in.

    He posted on 4/6 “Run it back” if he changes his mind this quickly I don’t want him here.
