Oh yeah, I remeber early on in Jay Wright's career when you stated how good of a coach he was. You said he would win a Natty at Nova and have multiple final four appearances.

Wait, you didn't, and you don't know where Arkansas basketball will be in 5 years either.

Sweet sixteen the 5th year...Mike nope, then the elite 8 the next. Probably getting his 2nd championship tonight.
Are you saying we should expect that from CMA? Hope you are right, but that is pretty lofty expectations considering what we have seen thus far

Villanova earned a post-season tournament berth in each of Wright's initial ten seasons as Villanova head coach before missing in 2011–12.

Six of Wright's ten NCAA Tournament losses at Villanova were to the eventual National Champion.

What a horrific OP.  Yeah he's had a few early losses, but he's shown a far bigger upside all along.

These kinds of thread are #FakeNews and only hurt those wanting to inflate Anderson.  I'm not calling for his head, but I'm realistic in what he's accomplished.

Yeah go ahead and and give the "no losing seasons" deal. It's a weak retort.

Dumb post.  If MA had the same level of success that Wright did his first 7 seasons, nobody would be questioning him.

You're trying to present this like its the first year Wright has done anything.

sweet 16 in year 4
elite 8 in year 5
sweet 16 again year 7
final four in year 8

I think the comparison just ended

However, Mike has the talent coming in to show us what he can do over the next 4 years.  Either he'll do something great, or we'll be looking at early retirement.  But I think he has the next 4 years if he wants it so we might as well enjoy the ride.

Posted this in a different thread but seems to fit better here.

Villanova's DiVincenzo (JR this year) played a total of 74 mins his freshman year. He is absolutely killing it tonight. While I would love to have Trey back this coming year, red shirting just doesn't seem to be a thing in college basketball unless it's a transfer or for medical reasons.

A lot of people have bashed Mike for this but seems like everyone, including National Champions, play freshman little to essentially no minutes and don't use the RS.

Nova’s 4 class rankings from 247 for this team:

47

We had the total bust in the 2015 class and a revolving door of transfers in and out and JC patches.  Wright has control of his program.

I'll correct myself. DiVincenzo is actually listed as a RS Soph. Says he was hurt. Interesting that a guy who gets hurt after playing 74 mins is allowed a RS while Trey played 33 mins and it cost him a year.

I'm not interested in giving Mike stuff for the stupid program moniker. I agree it's embarrassing, or at least misrepresents whatever we're doing out there.

However, few things excite fans more than tenacious and effective defense. The arena was ready to bust a few times this year only to be calmed by an opponent's basket.

I think the players play hard for Mike, but our defense is no longer efficient. It's akin to failing to rush a quarterback in football. It may have worked when we ran waves of fresh players at opponents - making them shoot from positions on the floor that made them uncomfortable. But those days are gone. The players are too good.

These are the times of the Curry-led Golden State Warriors. Seems everyone can shoot the moment they pass the half court line. I just watched everyone on Villanova dismantle a physically large and gifted Michigan team. They made it look easy... Creating shots and a thirst for defense and rebounding the basketball everywhere on the floor.

As Razorback fans know, everybody playing basketball at this level can play and shoot well. We must adjust defensively to prevent open 3s and crash the boards - less fouling, less chasing and no more second shots.

We can do this. We have to do this.

Oh man, two times in one day i've put my foot in my mouth. Looking through your post history, you're not the dbag i thought you were. I'm sorry; That's all i can say at this point. I could have sworn it was you posting something douchey around the butler loss. but looking through your post history it looks fairly unbiased and neutral. So yeah, all i can do is say that I'm sorry.

Apparently, many here are omniscient.

Mike Anderson can only dream to be as good as Jay Wright.

Arkansas can only dream to be as dominant and attractive as a program like Villanova.

Mike will never get close to accomplishing what Jay Wright has. Not even if he retires here.

Mike recruits good athletes that can run up and down the floor fast, but couldn’t throw it in the ocean from the end of the pier.  Jay gets Basketball players who can shoot the rock.  Great shooting can over shadow many flaws.  Our teams from 1990 - 1995 could shoot the basketball, so along with their pressure defense, they sustained success.  Our existing team can’t shoot the rock consistently enough to be at that Elite 8+ level.  They only reach the first and second rounds because they run into better shooting ball teams.  At the end of the day, it’s still about getting the ball in the hole.

Maybe you're right, but how do we fit the fact that we led the SEC in three point percentage into your narrative?  Did somehow that not happen?
