There is nothing to talk about! I wasn't happy about the hire, but was willing to give him a chance. I'm an impatient yankee, sorry. Silence, IMO is not good. I know it's not the popular opinion and that's fine, but it's my opinion.

And CG switching jobs and learning a new role is entirely different from coaching. Losing all 5 recruits is = to losing the entire department i worked in when starting. If i lost my whole group when i started 2 weeks ago i'd damn sure have hired a replacement or 2 by now!

Quality of replacements be damned? You'd just fill the spots to fill the spots? That is very short-sighted. They've made offers; what would you do to make the free-market replacements accept the offer?

You weren't happy with the hire so you're verbalizing your displeasure. I'm perfectly fine with that, but don't pretend that you gave the staff a chance.

I haven't thrown in the towel on the guy, so I feel like I am giving him one. Sorry I'd expect to see something by now. Clearly I'm not as patient as some of you.

In regards to being short sighted, i don't agree. If he had grabbed a Juco or a Grad transfer at this point that would fill holes short term and still have scollys open when he has a full year to recruit. Maybe he is, but we don't know because we have heard very little.

It's all about your perception. You're praising Keatts for signing one four-star and a guy that was suspended middle of the season by Baylor last year. Yes, Baylor, who pretty much says nothing is off limits to their student athletes. Scott Drew isn't exactly known as a disciplinarian and Freeman really struggled once conference play started. Meanwhile, State has three guys that are considering transferring, one who decided to forgo two seasons in college to play basketball in Europe and one that left the team to be a late lottery pick. Everyone assumed DSJ would be gone, so there's certainly no shame there, but things are hardly going great for Keatts, yet you said yesterday, he's off to a fast start. It's all about YOUR perception. You think Keatts is going to do well, so every move he makes seems like a move in the right direction. You perceive the McGrath hire as a mistake, so you assume no news means doom and destruction of the entire program.

Look back, I didn't say he was off to a fast start, that was someone else. I did state that I thought the guy from Baylor was a good get and i stand by that based on on the court talent alone. The thing is though there IS activity there to measure.

Heard the kid from Whiteville is considering leaving NCSU-Shaun Kirk. Got very little playing time in 2 years.
You gotta give the UNCW guy a chance and at this point it is pretty much a waste of time to even talk about it.

Bring Whitley to Murray State. My, how fast he changed his mind after sounding so confident commitment to Uncw. He never had any good offers besides us and Murray State. Good luck Mr Whitely.

Maybe he doesn't like winning championships. Too much pressure.
