Heís been given 7 long years and yet we are still in the bottom tier of the conference and will be for as long as he is here. Other schools in our conference have spent the money and upgraded their coaching and are leaving us behind.

If he doesn't make the NCAA this year he needs to go. But I'm pretty sure he'll make it. LSU has a really good point. We have always struggled with teams that have good points. Bc our system depends on turning people over. To make matters worse LSU has some length and the rebounding advantage adds to making this matchup bad for us.

But we clearly had some guys give up over and over defensively during this game. That part ticks me off. If I was coaching this team there would be a few guys running until they puked next practice. Seniors or not.

I think MA gets fired this year. Yurachek is looking for his first big hire. His first stamp on the Arkansas athletic program. Getting rid of MA and getting HIS guy would be that. Let's be honest, Morris was all but hired when he was hired. While they might be joined now, Morris wasn't Yurachek hire.

Thats not what I said.  My point was more in line with we havent hired well.  Additionally, I am all for waiting to see what our season looks like when its all said and done.  In the meantime I will support the team and coach cause theres still alot of ball to be played.  I think Frank would agree...

Should he? Yes ... Will he? No ...

Something other than the program will have to go room temperature for Mike to be fired, and that's not happening any time soon, it would appear.

It also appears that he's on track to squeak in this year, barring a complete melt down, so the whole question seems moot.

It was our new AD not Long that gave Anderson the extension.

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."

Mike will get it fixed.

Yes, but isn't that the entire argument for/against retaining Anderson and his staff? Those wanting to retain Mike Anderson say "Mike will get it fixed", while those in the fire Mike Anderson camp say "If Mike Anderson could have fixed the problem(s) we wouldn't still be talking about fixing the problem(s) in year seven."
I WAS a huge Mike Anderson fan, but without changes to his coaching staff I think that it's time for a change in leadership.

Letís reserve judgement until the end of the year


I can look at the trend and tell you how it's going to work out. If you'll notice, the more games he coaches the worse his winning percentage. We're currently 15-8, which is .652 and that is almost right spot on with his career of .656.

I know statistics don't tell the whole story, especially the color about why. But over time they reveal who you are as a coach, and to expect different results is just lunacy.

Some HC do whatever takes to get great players to their school. Others do the minimum and look dumbfounded when said player goes to KY or Miss ST. So sick of MA looking dumbfounded.

The NCAA tourney is irrelevant unless the program has a legit shot of winning it or it's early in a new coach's program rebuild and thus demonstrates the program is on the way up.

As we knew when he was hired, MA doesn't have what it takes to built a championship program ... at any level.

MA should be fired.

And his buyout should be taken from Jeff Long's.   >:(

I'm not going to flat out call someone a liar or anything, I'm just saying what I heard on the news and the Pig Trail, which was reported on in January that Mike was receiving the 2 year extension.   That's all I know.  It could have been that they were just reporting old news, that's just not what "I" got from it.

Why don't you read the article? The deal was done and signed before Yurachek came on board. The board of trustees met and gave final approval in their January meeting. Yurachek had nothing to do with it. The deal was set in motion last April.

I've said it before and it always falls on deaf ears. Mike Anderson's real value is the healing of the damage done to the program by the destructive feud between Richardson and Broyles (and both bear a big part of the blame since both put their own egos ahead of the program). Anderson should be kept a year or two more (in two years he'll be 60- a reasonable age for a coach to retire) and given a golden parachute, all with his agreement-including the agreement not to take another job.

After that the healing will be complete and there is a chance Arkansas can entice a real coach-not a Heath or a Pelphrey. Firing Anderson undoes the good that has been done to the program's tarnished reputation. The fan base is far too concerned with the short term and far too dismissive of the need to get the basketball program on solid ground again.

The 90s are far in the rear view mirror and will not likely ever come again but this program ought to be a perennial in the tournament-for that it needs as good a coach as can be found willing to come. People shouldn't forget that after Richardson was fired respected coaches like Mark Few made statements to the effect that no self respecting coach should consider Arkansas (and until Mike none did).

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.


We are firmly in the cellar of the SEC and we've scuffled and lost to the teams down there with us. Right now we are as bad as it gets in the whole 14 team conference. With Seniors all over the squad we have underachieved with gusto.

Why don't you read the article? The deal was done and signed before Yurachek came on board. The board of trustees met and gave final approval in their January meeting. Yurachek had nothing to do with it. The deal was set in motion last April.

You would know this if you read the article.

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,,,,,
