We saw some pretty good basketball out of an old retread Wimp Sanderson. Had he recruited, no telling how much better he'd done here.

The good thing about a proven coach is that even if he has lost a little on the rebound, there may be a lot left even at that. Even 60% of a really good coach still leaves a good coach.

Wimp had some really good players. Were they all guys that Jim Platt recruited? Maybe so, but I can't really remember at this point.

Brady had some good seasons at ASU, but it didn't end well. I figure a good coach just doesn't "forget" how to coach. Sometimes they just end up at a high level job which just isn't a good "fit" or they have some bad breaks with regard to injuries, eligibility, etc. Often they are just wanting another "chance" and may be thrilled to get that at a midmajor.

It is doubtful that Brady was thrilled to get to be in Jonesboro (or anywhere in Arkansas, for that matter). That is why I always wonder about attitude with rebound coaches. However, it is not always negative: some coaches are just thrilled to land on their feet and get another chance, and they work just as hard as they did before. Some are principled enough that they give it their best regardless. But (from a distance) it did not appear that Brady had that spark any longer, and I suspect that is the case more often than not. Age also plays a factor. If the coach is young enough, he may get another shot at the big time, but an older coach probably won't be active long enough.

Yes Mickey, Platt recruited most of Wimp's first players. No one ever said Platt couldn't recruit, just couldn't coach'em evidently.

I can. They were pretty much all Platt's recruits- Fisher, Dixon, Dobbins...

Coach Kennedy officially stepped down today after 2 losses since announcing he would leave at the end of the season. Probably best for all involved. Interesting to see if he get another coaching job, or goes to the retirement home for ex-coaches (i.e. the broadcasting booth).
