Consistency or New Coach every three years?
« on: February 21, 2018, 05:06:29 pm »

To me Hog fans are mostly delusional when it comes to Arkansas’ chances to compete year in year out in the SEC.

Yes because some of the best facilities in the country and a 1 school P5 state that produces tons of P5 talent can't compete regularly in this league! /S

Frito Pie because I dislike the options, I love consistency with the right coach. Not sure we have the right coach.

Consistency with a coach who is contending for and winning conference championships, yearly Big Dance visits foregone conclusion just working to improve seed, Sweet 16 visits normal with a threat to go to the final four. Consistency with what we are getting 7 years in? No thanks, would rather move on and try to get better.

Agreed. This is basketball, not football. 

It's not delusional by any means to think we should compete year in year out.

I didn't vote because you didn't include "going out and hiring the best Coach available that has excellent recruiting ties and also is one of the best X's and O's out there.   Money shouldn't be a hindrance either, we can afford more than what we pay Anderson now, and he's getting paid very well for a so so record.

I wish we’d pull the plug on the 1994/nostalgia replication expirament as it’s like driving down the road with eyes locked in to the rear view mirror. That’s me though. At some point, the masses have to come to the conclusion that we have overall accepted “lower highs” as a program AND want to change that before MA goes anywhere.

Anderson is not going anywhere. He's going to be here. I sure hope that Gafford comes back or next season could be his last?? IDK..I hope we put things together here at the end but we might end up in the NIT with all these seniors. And that is bad.

SO now not only can we not be expected win the SEC, we are not even supposed to expect to COMPETE every year. Competing simply means being in the hunt, and we are not even supposed to expect that now.

Our basketball program should year in and out be in the top 3 programs in the SEC, "competing" to win conference titles, something that we haven't done in 20 years.

Mike Anderson isn't the man for the job.

To borrow a line from Walter Cronkite, if you've lost Jump Ball, you've lost America.

What makes should think we should be competing since we haven’t done it in 20 years?

Why “should” Arkansas be in the top 3? In my eyes recruiting, coaching, current play doesn’t make me think we should compete. It is just because we have a nice (but small) arena?

Nobody wants a coach carousel... People would love a really good coach that would get the team to the tourney 4 out of 5 years and at minimum a sweet 16 in one of those 4.... The poll question is irrelevant

Consistency is fine IF it is a consistently acceptable level. Hogs do not even have that. No post season in Mike's 1st 2 seasons, then NIT, then NCAA, then Nothing, then NCAAT as a 9 seed, and this yr TBD. And next yr looks like a very real possibility of no post season ( 6 or 7 new comers and almost all of the scoring gone ).

Bud Walton is actually one of the largest college basketball arenas in the country. I believe it is the 10th biggest by capacity. May not be the Carrier Dome but definitely not small.

BWA is one of the largest basketball venues in the nation.

Why "should" anyone besides Kentucky and Florida consistently be ahead of us?

we consistently under perform and no I don't think that will lead to eventual success.

Only Kentucky should be ahead of us in the SEC. I don't care what all the people on here talking down about Arkansas. Not sure if Mike is going to get it done anymore.

We might be about to end this season on a 5 game losing streak. Gafford probably leaving and we will suck next year.

With the football hire Arkansas proved they are not willing to hire the best coach available.
