I am generally pro Mike.

But thereís no excuse for this squad to miss the tournament. Short of mass injuries.

We need to make the tournament.

If we miss it and they decide to fire him, sorry but I wonít be here saying we should keep him.

This team has too much experience and talent to not make it.

I haven't seen the article is why I haven't read it.  Like I said earlier, I could be mistaken, I just stated what was said on those programs I listed.  They never did say that the deal had been made earlier in the year, go back and reread my post.  I don't mind saying I'm wrong when I am.  Wouldn't it be something if all psters thought that way,,,,,

Why don't you answer the question?
I will answer it for you. If the Razorbacks do not make the NCAA tournament yes he should be fired

I'm way ahead of you, bro.

If no NCAAT, yes. Fireable offense with this talent.

I go on record to say what ever the UofA decides to do I will still be a fan, however it would be hard to root for Samson or what ever the name of the past cheater from Houston is. We all know with the extension Mike has another year regardless,I do wish him an the team sucess.

Why do people act like just making the tournament is some kind of major accomplishment?? We should be going to as many sweet 16s as overall tournament appearances.

To think making the dance is a job saver just shows how far down Long brought expectations.

We have become like one of those poor teams that get 1 automatic bid in their conference and we will be ecstatic to receive the bid after winning the conference tournament. We are not A-V-E-R-A-G-E we are worse.

I voted Frito Pie.  I see some people posting that Mike sucks or Mike is terrible, but he isn't.  He is ok and not much more.  If this team fails to make the tournament this season it means two NCAA appearances in seven seasons, none past the second round.  That sure doesn't live up to the expectations I had when Mike came here.  If we miss the tournament this year, I think it is time to seek another leader for Arkansas basketball, but I just don't think it happens.  That is why I voted Frito Pie.  Even though he may need to go, it is not likely to happen for no other reason than nostalgia.

I would have agreed with you had Long still been here.  The new AD isn't going to put up with this.

The new AD has a perfect window to dump Mike.  Finishing17-14, as it looks now, prior to the SEC tor=urney will allow him to step in and pull the trigger.

They will return when Arkansas becomes a team that is regularly in the ncaa tournament.  That hasnít been the case in awhile and is starting to get there.

With a year like this. The fact we have so many seniors if we were to miss on the tournament then there is no excuse to continue to keep Mike Anderson as the coach.  You have the talent you have the experience and miss the tournament then that is completely on coaching.

Mike is NOT a great recruiter. Will Wade from LSU is a GREAT recruiter. When has Mike ever done this:

The SEC in basketball in the very near future is basically going to be led by the following.

Mississippi State
LSU
Alabama

College basketball is basically just a recruiting game, and those above 3 programs are recruiting at the level that it takes to win a lot of games.

If Billy Donovan left the pros this year, I think the most likely landing spot would be Louisville.

Fred Hoiberg would be a possibility, but Iowa State would probably fire their current coach just to get him back.

hard to defend his performance, but who was the last coach to get arkansas to the 2nd round twice in his tenure? Just last year, people were talking about how Arkansas had the eventual national champs on the ropes until the refs starting tripping. Just put things in perspective before having a knee jerk reaction.

Apparently last year was just a high tide and doesn't appear to be sustainable. A decision based on a seven year experience is not a knee jerk reaction . There is someone out there that can and would love to coach and elevate this program . Eddie Sutton was largely an unknown when he got here and the program was in worse shape then too.  Nolan was not widely known either .

Here it is though, when Eddie and Nolan were hired, they were just young coaches, they had not reached HOF status, and honestly nothing about them said they would reach what they did. Mike has been a HC 15 yrs now, we have seen enough to know he is no hof coach. Go find the next young guy that MIGHT turn into the next Nolan or Eddie.

We should not be hoping to get into the NCAA tournament every year.  Missing the tournament should be the exception not the norm.  Under Heath, Pelfrey, and Anderson it has been the exception.  I'm tired of that.  We need a coach that is going to make missing the tournament and exception.  The last 15 years has really caused me to be indifferent towards the basketball team.  I want a team I can get excited about.   

No, we shouldn't be expecting it every year, but, we should expect it when we have a senior/junior laden teams!

No bc we are finally getting out of the cellar. Hoping the hogs get to the tournament. Projected to still be in even with 8-10 record.

Make the tournament. Is that the only requirement for us keeping the coach? I would like to see us go to the final four once in a while or at least the sweet sixteen.

Wrong, Yurachek had nothing to do with it.

"Anderson signed the new agreement Nov. 22. Arkansas Chancellor Joseph Steinmetz signed it on Nov. 30 and UA System President Donald R. Bobbitt signed it on Dec. 1. Thursday was the Board of Trustee's first regularly scheduled meeting since the contract was signed."

We havenít been to a Sweet 16 in over 20 years with 5 different coaches.

So what has changed that now we should be a program that is a member of the Sweet 16 any time we make the tournament?
