    Logic would suggest you are right, but with a new AD, anything is possible

    A basketball program can be turned around more quickly than any other sport. Ours is the equivalent of UVA in football. And, there's really no promise on the horizon. I think we are worse now than when JJ took over, and see no cause for optimism.

    All it takes is one good recruiting class, or one diamond in the rough - IF the coach has a plan...

    It's hard for me to imagine JJ getting fired at the end of this season, but games like this make it hard for me to imagine him not getting fired after next season. That end of game crap was worse than SG, who never seemed to have a strategy except give it to the best shooter and see what happens. We had over 20 seconds and we just dribbled around and did nothing, running out the clock until we threw up a contested off-balance shot leaving only 1 second left. We should have had a designed play to get a shot off, then prepared for defense or prepared to foul. We had enough time that if the play didn't work, but we still had the ball, JJ had another timeout. Instead he just stood there with that timeout watching the guys run around with the ball.

    If JJ went away this season we might lose a 2 and 3 star prospect.....I will take my chances....as long as there is a plan in place to grab a decent coach....unlike last time.....

    Yea, I guess he wanted a chance to go 3 for 15

    At the very least, I'd sub CR in for offense, JVZ for defense at end of halves, maybe before media timeouts and end of game situations. At least CR finishes non dunks around the basket better
