I voted C cause I think MA is an average coach.  But I definitely think finding a better replacement would be iffy.  Best candidates would be up and comers in mid-majors who want to break into the SEC.  But that's a slippery slope also.

Mike needs to go.  Any coach with average players can beat Mikeís system playing a 2/3 zone and double up on Gafford and Mike canít or wonít do a thing about it.  I didnít want him hired and expected then it would not end well.

I give him his credit. He took over a dumpster fire and made it competitive again. But we've seen his peak here. At the end of the season I hope it isn't ugly enough for people to lash out at him like Bert and we can say thanks for bringing some stability so he can walk away with dignity.

LSU Ole Miss, Miss St, Tenn, Vandy, Georgia and Auburn didn't struggle to find a better coach.

As much love Anderson Sycophant Army did over the past several years and no vote for A? I guess change is real and could happen in a matter of months if his biggest backers are not outraged but quiet.

AA/F


Which in this case stands for Affirmative Action and the irrational fear of firing a black coach who has been given waaaaaaaay more time than necessary to thoroughly demonstrate he is not up to the job.  And it should be noted these grades are equally shared by Mike Anderson and the University of Arkansas since both parties have been complicit in perpetuating an environment allowing one of the major sports programs to diminish in stature (approaching obscurity).

I'd grade him a B- to B for his first few years but unfortunately instead of getting better, I'd give him a C- to D this year. Time for a change.

Missouri just beat A&M by a very comfortable margin at A&M where the Hogs struggled to win a nail biter.

Georgia gave Florida all they wanted Saturday.


Seeing that Mike Anderson himself stated that his players have lost their confidence, I'd say it's a good possibility.

Looks like we finally got an A. I'm going to guess who it is. I'm probably correct about whom but no names to be mentioned. It's this coaching search that they don't want to happen or someone is pulling our chain

This is the issue of some. They go with fear bait! We have yet to see our AD hire anyone. He played college basketball so maybe he's better at this than long, Seems like the freshman excuse is a lame one as most on this poll agree.


probably thinks is me but I voted C

No I didn't think it was you but we have a couple more votes.

Why does MA have one of the best SEC records the past few years if true?  That may feel true to you, but facts prove otherwise.

I'm somewhere between C and D. I went ahead and voted C. Personally, I would like a new coach for the Razorbacks because I feel like it's obvious how and in what ways the program is capped with Anderson as coach. Might get lucky with a favorable tournament draw and make a run. We're pretty much a win-one-and-out program at our best outside of that lucky tournament draw/run. Regular season will be good most years. Roster management will often be sub-optimal. Player development will be minimal or likely a result of increased usage/natural development. Roles for some players will be mismanaged.

Would I fire him based on what he's done so far? Nah. But we're to that point, most definitely, where next year is NCAA tournament or terminated. Do that and you lose your first game or go two-and-out, gonna need to see a Sweet 16 at least because he should have a pretty good group of juniors. That group should be good enough to be a higher seed, IMO. So we're talking disappointing loss in the 1st or 2nd round. He doesn't have the latitude anymore for disappointing tournament losses in the first two rounds.

I worry about those in charge being able to hire a real upgrade. I can just imagine they see guys like Barnes, Crean and Howland coming into the league and thinking they have to get some kind of established head coach with some kind of real past success. It would depend on who is available at that time, I guess. Is that someone like Rick Stansbury or Kelvin Sampson? Will they be too arrogant to go back to the mid-majors for an up-and-comer? I think they might because of recent SEC hires.  If they're insistent on an old, established name, might as well fire Mike after the season and hire former Nolan foe Rick Pitino and let's see what he can do to close out his career. I'm serious. Fire with fire, baby.
