We can't wait until March to fire Jank

Postby skyscraper » Tue Nov 20, 2018 8:13 pm

This is even worse than I thought it would be. And I got torn to shreds for sounding the alarm last season.
It appears we have no system on offense or defense that we run. Jank isn't coaching or making adjustments in-game.
The players look ill-prepared. Even decent performers from last season look atrocious.
The odds of an in-season firing are admittedly small -- but it's like we're watching a rerun of JJ burning a program to the ground in real time. This is worse, IMO, because we've actually achieved legitimate success in basketball.
I hope Miller and the other check writers are as distraught as we are and change is imminent because the legacy programs in the AAC are getting their act together.

It's ugly and we don't even have an assistant worthy of the interim tag so brace yourself for a long season. Who would you have run this team the rest of this season? Turner? Duncan? Do any of our assistants have any experience as a H.C.?

Who would be available to hire now? It would be a short list but it only takes one.

A lot of blue shirts hanging around the SMU bench, all looking lost.

Can we follow the lead of Memphis? Hire the local hero (Kidd) with skins on the wall who mom/dad watched play his entire career? Can you imagine Kidd recruiting your son in and outside of Texas? If not Kidd, we have to swing for the fences. Everything is in place.

We will be left in the dust in our own conference (let alone the country) if we don’t do something NOW. It’s no longer about Jank, it’s about everything Going on around us. Hurley, Hardaway, Dawkins, Dunleavy vs. Jank? Give me a break. It’s over Johnny! It’s overrrrrr!!!

Don't really understand the fascination with Jason Kidd. He was at best average as the coach in Milwaukee, and honestly he was terrible in-game.
There are other "names" that would seemingly be better.

SMU needs someone that can flat out recruit.

I’d rather be slower about it and do it right.

Who cares about how 80%+ of these players perform this year. All but a couple should be gone next year.

You are probably right about that. It will be a rebuild.

I forgot about Ole Oscar

Peruna and Oscar react to the 3 game losing streak.
