Surprising it took 4 pages to draw you in, racist.
Only while his protege Mike Anderson is the coach, if that ever ceases to be the case, Nolan will once again unleash his full hatred on the UA.
I was disappointed that the cause of Nolan's demise wasn't mentioned. As I recall, the Broyles administration fucked up J. Patte's and S. Adebayo's paper work which lead to four years of NCAA investigations. Many of Nolan's players transferred. Recruiting suffered. If I was Nolan, I'd hate Frank's guts.
Those games in may/day era vs Bama were epic. The talent and skill level was off the chart. You are correct, early entry has killed the college game.
Interesting that you mention this, because Friday night I watched a lot of the replay of the game against Missouri at BWA from December 1995. This was early in the season after we lost the title game to UCLA, and there were a lot of changes in the lineup from the preceding three years. Gone were guys like Corliss, Scotty, Clint McDaniel, Corey Beck, Dwight Stewart, etc. In were freshmen Kareem Reid, Pat Bradley, Derek Hood, and juco transfers like Jesse Pate and Sundaye Adebayo. Pate and Adebayo both played very well in that game, prior to the whole eligibility mess, and Ali Thompson (a true freshman that year) was blocking shots all over the place. While not nearly as good a team (especially after losing Pate and Adebayo) as the several that preceded it, that team still went to the Sweet Sixteen. That's the last time we've been past the second round in the NCAA Tournament. 1995-1996.
Actually, D. Robinson remained on the the team the 95-96 season.
Anyone know whether it will be replayed, and if so, can I get it on something other than the U? Until later this week I am doomed to dish network and can't find anything on the search feature or on espin's website.
That was a typo. I meant Dwight Stewart. Went back and changed it after I realized my mistake.I didn't see much of Robinson in that particular game I was watching the other night, but Lee Wilson saw a lot of playing time (and actually looked pretty decent) before he fouled out.From the December 25, 1995, edition of The Sporting News:The Hogs are gobbled up by monstrous expectations
Good find there. I wouldn't have known there were any internet articles going back that far. I couldn't find the 95-96 schedule results anywhere. I didn't realize they started 4-3 that season. I just recall they were hot near mid-season before Pate-Adebayo were yanked.
nolan quit and needed to be firedthe fuck is MA daughter playing at texass for
She's a senior. Where do you think she should be playing?
um i dont know, maybe a school that wasn't a rival or same conf where my dad coached
That says Last 7 days, brah.
She could have made that decision regardless of where dad coached. And if she did consider it, she sat at the same supper table with dad and she probably had a strong inclination he was ready to go when the phone rang from Arkansas. Besides that, this is women's college bb we're talking about. And it's not like she left Arkansas to go to Texas. She left Missouri.
yea, thanks for that explanation, i am now dummer for having read that
Recruiting changed in the 90's as AAU coach/handler/street agent became the person to deal with instead of the high school coach. Red Boots didn't like dealing with those rascals and his hands were tied when it came to recruiting Juco's which was always a strength of his.
Are you being serious about all this?If so, you really need to let some things go.
let my hatred for texass go? not gonna happen
Throwing out the "Racist" BS again huh?Everybody who is not fond of all the things Nolan did to the UA on his way out is not a racist. In fact many of them, just like me, were big supporters and fans of Nolan for a long time.Calling everybody "racists" who dares to express anything remotely considered as criticism of Nolan just weakens the term and makes people quit listening to the barking dog.
What kind of reaction do you all think we would have to Nolan today if we hadn't walked in the wilderness from 2003-2011? Suppose John White had bled to death while jacking off with a cheese grater the week before Nolan's meltdown, and Frank had been able to hire whomever he wanted. Bill Self was all but on a plane to come to the press conference when White put his grubby little dick grabbers all over the process. Assuming Self had been hired and had the success that he's had at Illinois and Kansas since that time, would we still be so happy and gracious towards Nolan for his accomplishments? I like to think we would, but something tells me a lot of the sentiment from the end of Nolan's tenure would remain.
You're either racist or stupid. Either way, you're a douche.
I think John White screwed up pretty much everything he touched in athletics, but I can't say I completely blame the UA for not hiring Self. Watching that documentary, I remember thinking how bad we would have looked had we hired a white coach. I don't think our whole program was racist like Nolan made it sound but that would have been some nice evidence for his court case and things might be a lot different right now.
