RE: Dickens Transferring
I don't know that we have reached out but there are a few players that are graduate transfers that would be eligible to play right away. The best one of the bunch is probably DJ Williams. I hope we've reached out but I don't know how Jones would feel about bringing someone on so late.

That sounds pretty crazy. How Does that work, Giles?

Since he didn’t answer your question; the way a graduate transfer would be eligible right away is by:

1) graduating in May/August and being eligible at their new school immediately (this is the common way)
2) graduating in December and NOT playing at their current school during the fall semester. This would make them eligible immediately at their new school

Enough is enough, our program is clearly not healthy.........we need to make the tough decision.

Not just jones, wood needs to go as well.

Clean house.

Im starting to feel that way too. Every major program is worse now than when Wood started. The only big successes he has had are fundraising and hiring McCray. And I would think fundraising would be tied to building the stadium (which IMO was bungled). Some would consider the stadium a success, but I look at it as another example of overpromising and underdelivering. Its definitely a step up, but not what is should have been for the money we spent.

I don't think the basketball program will go any higher, along as JJ is in charge. For the past 7 years, I have got excited when we offer a quality player, only to see them go to a lower school. It is at this time when our coaching staff goes crazy and will take anybody that says yes. Wood is the author of hiring JJ and staff. Both must go, unless we are satisfied playing weak teams and keeping a status que! In fairness to JJ, recruiting coaches may tell their recruits that JJ has health problems and his temper is out of sight.

At the time ...JJ was exactly he right hire to make. But today we have enough REAL data that says it is time to let someone else see where they can take the program.

I’m not against hiring a new b-ball coach. I think it’s a good job but not a great job. ODU has a huge fundamental issue that can’t be corrected by coaching, unfortunately. Maybe a new coach helps in the short term. But make no mistake, there is a long term fundamental problem. Sorry to beat a dead horse, but it’s true. And even if we hit a great “home run” with a young up and coming coach, Dude is gonna jump at the first chance to get to a real conference. Charter flights across country to play conference games is gonna get old real quick.
