Rob is a helluva recruit and that was his calling card. He is obviously an very astute guy with a lot of basketball knowledge. He was also a heck of a player. Give the man a chance to hone his craft.

Has any head coach in UAB history started with as good a roster without having to recruit a single player as Ehsan? And if so, has any other coach started with as good of a roster in as bad of a league as current C-USA?

Again, he wasn't hired to "hone his craft". He was chosen in order to continue the momentum and maximize this roster that had gone to two straight C-USA titles (tournament champs, then season champs). He brought this up himself when he was hired.

Quote:"My knowledge, my feel for the program, players, community and school, I think that was my biggest thing," Ehsan said. "Nobody had a better pulse on it than I did."
Quote:"You've seen the midmajors who have had sustained and national success. We're in a position with our roster, facilities and leadership that we can do that. That's the unique thing about this situation."


I do agree with Ehsan about one thing though:
Quote:This opportunity, if I wasn't able to become head coach here, could have been another 10 to 15 years where I'm able to get an opportunity like this."

Then what exactly did you expect ? For us to open the box and Rob to be Jared Haase 2.0 ? Because I think that's what we've got. HCJH had one of the best finishers any coach at UaB has ever had. Robert Brown was truly in a very small class of great Blazer Players. Rob doesn't have That Guy yet.

And picking at every little statement or problem really , really helps, everyone. 03-lmfao 03-lmfao 03-lmfao

You guys are one more loss to one of the FU's from forming a lynch mob. 01-wingedeagle

RE: Honest Basketball Assesment
We have had a good and experienced roster, and played probably the worst two schedules in UAB history. He's barely above .500 against D1 teams with a bottom dweller SOS. What world do you live in? How can you rationalize this as okay/good results? How can you have been a uab basketball fan since the 80s and be okay with what you see now? Bizarre.

I only disagree on the development of Cokley. I think he’s gotten much better. If nothing else, his ability to control his fouls is great development

Cokley is really our only player to substantially improve the past 2 years

Why are you still here ? Reading comprehension hasn't been a strong suit for you has it ?

We are 5 games over .500 . That is way better than most teams playing.

Our conference mates have equal talent to us. You can like it or not, or go ahead and deny it like I know you will. Because we all know "The Answer" knows all, therefore everyone else is wrong, even when "The Answer" is presented with facts.

I've seen some pretty crappy schedules over the years. Rob Eshan is not alone. It is however the first UAB season I can remember since the Murry Bartow years that we went into the season with less than 3 servicable or healthy big men.

RE: Honest Basketball Assesment
5 games over .500 in an abysmal schedule. Is that something to brag about?

If we have equal talent to the whole league, then why do you consider rob such a great recruiter? Certainly he's recruited better talent than charlotte, rice, FAU/FIU, southern miss, etc?

And if my reading comprehension is poor, your ability to take facts and stats into context is completely nonexistent. Are you robs dad?

Do you really think that 15-10 in our schedule is 15-10 in a top 25 schedule? You're crazy. The extent to which you keep your head in the sand is baffling.

And crappy schedule is again relative. You refuse to note that we literally had one of the worst schedules in the country going into conference schedule. Literally one of the worst out of 350ish teams.

Why do you hate him so much , are you Rob's ex-girlfriend ?

Fans don't show up, our results are poor, we're 7th in a bad conference, 3 games above .500 against D1 teams in a horribly weak schedule. What else do you need to tell you things aren't going well?

Have some objectivity you're completely out of touch with reality

This is about to be my signature.

Just go be an Auburn fan until they get a slap on the wrist for paying players.

You and a few others have made Blazertalk a $hitty place to hang out. And most have left due to your and a few others derisive attitudes. But hey, a man has gotta prove he's right, even if he isn't.

You'd fit right in on MT.org .

Please track with me the highlights of UAB Basketball -

Three sweet 16 appearances ?

One Elite 8 ?

15 NCAA's winning 10 games total ?

That's 39 years of basketball to win 10 games in the NCAAs. We had 6 wins and 7 losses in the first 7 years.

So for the last 32 years, our program has won 4 games in 8 NCAA appearances. Three of THOSE wins came under Mike Anderson's tenure.

So outside of Gene's first 7 years and the 4 years of greatness Mike Anderson brought back to us, We've got one win in 5 appearances in the NCAAs in the other 28 years of mediocre basketball.

But I'm the one out of touch with reality. 01-wingedeagle

Actually I'm just the one that can see how it really is in life and you can't stand it that you are wrong. 03-lmfao 03-lmfao 03-lmfao

Good day and welcome to the ignore list.
