None of that post makes any sense. Fire Jank is not a plan. There is no guarantee it makes the program better, and it is probably not an option becasue of the $$, so we are stuck with JAnk for good or bad.

You are just making sure its worse.

The loser mentality is thinking $$ just solves everything. What is needed is leadership, faith, and people pulling together.

Telling other people to take out their checkbooks for your own gratification is what is pathetic.

Money does solve everything. Like when we poured $40M into the Moody renovation and then gave Larry Brown a big contract and finally started winning. Unfortunately, we also made loser Jankovich the HC in waiting (and made him the highest paid asst in the nation at the time) even though he’d never done much as a HC at North Texas or Illinois State.

Now we’re stuck with a loser coach who cant recruit and has zero energy or enthusiasm for the program. Virtually everyone agrees we’d be better off kicking him to the curb, but alas we’re stuck with for at least another season, because we’re SMU and we’re stupid. For what we’re paying Jank we could have a great head coach who actually cares about this program and wants to win. It’s pathetic that we finally saw the potential this program has with top ten teams, conference championships, and an unreal home court environment and are content to litertally throw it all away.

But you’ll get your wish...we’ll be back to losing a ton of games with no one inside Moody next season...enjoy!



Who were we sure to get if we canned Jank? I just love the assumption that whoever we pay $2 million a year to is automatically going to be a magnet for top tier kids and have the Xs and Os to back it up. We have had one coach in 25 years who could recruit and coach, and since we started showering the program with $$ we are hitting on 50% and that coach got us banned.

Apparently no one can stop the rampant Jank insults, but for pity's sake could we address the fact that not one of you clowns actually has a solution to hand.

Fire Jank. Then what?


I'll take an empty spot over Jank. At least it wont be a comedy show of excuses.

This is getting silly. All this frustration misdirected. It’s a big bad world out there and SMU like everyone else has to make decisions. And they have consequences. Here we are.

How we manage where we are is what is important. And there are many factors to consider. Jank is a simpleton’s target.

Thanks for posting. This guy is already a very good player, and I think he is going to
be a star for us. He was the number 1 player in Oklahoma the year he came out of
high school and won a variety of awards. He had numerous schools interested in him
and quite a few from power conferences. I am excited in his possibilities.

At end of day, all any of you have left, is that at the end of this crazy off-season, the roster has 2 more quality pieces than it does now.

There is gonna be roster turnover. We actually are positioned well for a few marquee kids. We may lose kids we want to and dont want to.

TCU imploding is gold.

No joke, there is a shot we're pretty good next year. There is also a shot we're Doh bad. Get new kids, no McMurray or Whitt.

Without going into the specifics, things are actually trending in a very interesting way. Adding the best possible two more pieces and boom... the team looks pretty darn solid on paper. How they do on the court still involves the coach. Nevertheless, if Janky B Goode can deliver the cream of the latest list next year could be fun.

Darius McNeill is on campus. Everyone should show him some love on Twitter. Would be a huge land.

Oops...that was McBride. I assume McNeill would have to sit a year but with a 13 man roster again, we can afford that luxury.

McNeill averaged 11PPG at Cal the last two seasons . He can try for a waiver due to his coach being fired and transferring closer to home, but he is a sit one play two right now.
