Re: POLL: Should Jank be fired?

Growing up in CNY (State not city) - baseball practice started the first Monday of March and since there was still snow on the ground we practiced in the gym. It's hard to field ground balls on the gym floor, tough to get your swing/contact down hitting tennis balls off a pitching machine, pitching off an artificial mound, impossible to shag some flies, and difficult to work situations/positioning. Most times, our first on-field opportunity was the first scrimmage of the year - and we were not good - it took a while in the right practice environment to develop the team chemistry.

To that point, I can see Janks frustration and it has to be apparent to the players as well. No matter how creative you try to be, it is just not the same environment. I also wonder if Larry would have been able to recruit better than Jank given the sanctions - clearly a better reputation, but wonder how hard it is to attract top talent to an environment where you can't practice/develop on court chemistry.

Since Jank isn't actually doing any recruiting I don't give a damn if he's frustrated and it's not an open question as to whether "Larry" could recruit better than Jank. This board could. He's walking malpractice.

I wonder if Larry voted in this poll. Must be painful for him to see what Jank has done to the program he built at SMU

I often wonder about two people’s opinion of the $h!t show Jank has created: LB and Nic Moore.

Nic liked Jank or wouldn't have followed him to SMU...unless it was just for the opportunity to play for Larry Brown and had nothing to do with Jank. I remember Shake being interviewed after his injury last year (talking about sitting on the bench with Jank and the coaching staff while our season unraveled). When asked what he had learned sitting out, Shake's response was "that I don't want to become a coach!"

That’s sweet and all, but it doesn’t matter. I’m sure Dickerson still lives Ron Meyer, but that doesn’t mean we should have hired him 10 years ago.

Jank needs to be handed a realtor’s name and a pink slip. He’s becoming more and more incompetent at all facets of his job.

Exactly what I would have guessed.

Fire Jank.

What does that have to do with anything? He's a guy who knows Jank better than just about anyone.

Whether he buys season tickets WHILE LIVING IN ITALY is meaningless.

You can be a nice, likable person and still suck at what you get paid to do.

I would rather hear from IT, Sasser, Koncak, Phillips, etc. All-time SMU greats that don’t have a bias.

Nic should support Jank. Jank was his coach but is also a friend to Nic. Jank is a good guy. He is a terrible head basketball coach for any serious program. The laundry list of things he does poorly is LONG. There aren’t many coaches, if any, in the AAC I wouldn’t trade Jank for. He isn’t a good recruiter, isn’t a good X&Os guy, isn’t a good defensive coach, isn’t a good motivator, etc.
