Mitch Albom. Know your sports, dude. But don't forget Nolan bringing in Jennings, Gilbert, Hankins, et. al. He quit recruiting how he built the program. He signed the kids people bitched about him not signing (Keith Carter) and 'showed us'.
I should've guessed it would be about discrimination instead of Arkansas basketball. I'm so weary of that.I'm going back to Smokey and the Bandit.
Obviously rumors were already abound by the time that reporter at the Kentucky post-game struck a nerve with coach. Nothing they love more than to find a chink in the armor, pounce, then sit back like lard-ass at the pie-eating contest and revel at the chaos created."Do you think your job's in jeopardy, coach?" Proudly, what CNR accomplished was nothing short of phenomenal. However, 17 years is a long time. Had he continued on the same path I feel it would have delayed the inevitable. He was no longer the hungry contender with something to prove. He had grown weary of the monster and it was time, you could see it in his eyes. I just wish it could have gone down differently, on his terms. Instead of the ugly sideshow it became. It pleases me that he still supports the razorbacks, and agree BWA should be renamed NRA. It is only right.
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.
Twit from Jeff Long today.@jefflongUA @REPtheHOGS_116 "40 Minutes of Starkville" is on ESPN2 Tuesday at 11PM.
The bottom line is we had JJ Sullinger, ANDRE IGUOUDALA and Jonathan Modica coming in the year after Nolan was fired. He was going to turn it around if given SUPPORT AND TIME THAT HE DESERVED.Fired after a career spanning 17 years and unprecedented success. Meanwhile, a dipshit gets a 2 year pass to continually suck.
this is gay. not in a homosexual kind of way, but in a faggoty kind of way.
Once upon a time, big fat titties, and they all lived happily ever after. The End
Igoudala would have been a great player for us, but he was a swing man. Sullinger was a decent role player, but not a true guard. Modica brought instant scoring ability but poor ball handling skills. Also not really a guard.
There is no way to know if things would have been different, but perhaps without a big chunk of the fan base wanting to run off Coach Richardson maybe Emeka Okafor chooses us over UCONN? That would have made a difference.
The fact that the school finally faced its past to address its future and hiring Mike A. was a huge point for me. Remembering how bad Nolan's first teams were made me realize that where MA is with this team is a minor miracle. Yeah they suck on the road, but for crying out loud, its year one. If and when Mike can gets him some menz, it may come full circle. I like seeing Nolan in the stands at home games. And those kids on the 94 team were some high flying ballers, too. It's still amazing seeing the highlights.
One thing that stuck out to me was the talent level of some of the teams across the nation in the early 90s. UNLV was clearly loaded and one of the best teams ever, but those Duke and Kentucky teams were stacked as well. Didn't Bama trot out Latrell Sprewell, Hollywood Robinson and Robert Horry all at once?Early entry has hurt the game. I'd like to see a college baseball rule.
I just wish it could have gone down differently, on his terms. Instead of the ugly sideshow it became. It pleases me that he still supports the razorbacks.
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.
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.
