And they say Davis was the worst tournament coach. Umm no that would be Haase outside of one magical year lol. And what coach in their first year got swept by FIU.
You can't go "No, this coach was the worst outside of that year he won it all and a tournament game against a #3 seed!" Lol, how does that argument even work

One can hang is hat on a final four appearance as a HC.

Who has the highest winning percentage at UaB usually does it for some. Lol

Or things like last ranking appearance, number of guys drafted, top 25 wins, top 50 wins , maybe apr, or even Power5 wins for some.

Best school record got broken by a soft record but that too.

How many stains do you have on your picture of Mike Davis?

Literally never heard a coach get fired because "not enough of his players get drafted!" Or "ahhhhh he couldn't win anything in the post season but he had such a good overall winning percentage!"

Getting in the NCAA and then winning some games is all that matters really

Get a grip. There's a reason Davis is in the SWAC right now. Maybe someone will pick him up cause of the job he's done at Texas Southern, but obviously he hadn't done well enough at UAB to move up because no one hired him

RE: Once again...
It's hilarious that he gives Davis credit for getting Sharpe drafted. Sharpe barely spent any time at UAB and 60% of that time, he was asleep.

Your first thought me either or atleast at UaB. But ive heard of a coach hanging his hat on a schedule full of cupcakes after 1 NCAA tournament win and a call from his daddy wonder where is the prestige in that. Maybe Davis was fired for not winning tournament games since thats what most gripe about.

The fact of the matter is Davis got canned for the expectations some had after Anderson. Also nobody has done as well as Anderson since and in a weaker conference since Davis. Also Memphis was here when Davis was MTSU isnt that Memphis squad.Davis had four years of postseason play the big tournament he lost and the second one had great moments for three years.

I thought the reason was burn out and he's getting looks now because he's dancing, not right now but he made it. Eshan is watching. Another fact is Mike Davis seems to be dominating his one bid conference something UaB isnt doing. Since the split ive seen Mike Davis in more tournament appearances then UAB.


So we should be singing the praise of Anderson since no coach since him has had multiple NCAA tournament wins and appearances. Haase lost more games and had a terrible record against P5s his best two wins is the one point tourney win, and the NC win. I think Davis had better wins outside not winning one NCAA game. Guess the Iowa State was national championship to some for Haase

I don't think anyone is praising Haase (at least I'm not). I don't even think Haase is a great coach, but it seems like you defend specific coaches even when the facts are against you. I don't understand that. I do think Haase learned on the job and improved as time went on. However, Davis was a terrible tourney coach during his time at UAB and had his foot out the door it seemed to a lot of people = why he got fired. Personally I would've given him another year and was sad to see him get fired. It's not like he was just losing to Memphis in the CUSA tournament though. He was losing to lower seeded teams consistently nearly every CUSA tournament.

FWIW, I think Davis is a superior game coach to Haase or Ehsan, but there's a reason he's not still here. And of course Anderson was a great coach at UAB. He's a good coach period. Is anyone even disputing that?

As a side note, we like to blame the coaches a lot, but UAB is a job that has fallen dramatically. Can't put it all on coaches. We're behind in money (paying our men's basketball head coach something like 450k in the year 2017), facilities, and conference affiliation. Can't expect the coaches to be great at their jobs when our own resources are pretty poor comparatively.

You can't go "No, this coach was the worst outside of that year he won it all and a tournament game against a #3 seed!" Lol, how does that argument even work

One can hang is hat on a final four appearance as a HC.

Who has the highest winning percentage at UaB usually does it for some. Lol

Or things like last ranking appearance, number of guys drafted, top 25 wins, top 50 wins , maybe apr, or even Power5 wins for some.

Best school record got broken by a soft record but that too.
Literally never heard a coach get fired because "not enough of his players get drafted!" Or "ahhhhh he couldn't win anything in the post season but he had such a good overall winning percentage!"

Getting in the NCAA and then winning some games is all that matters really

Get a grip. There's a reason Davis is in the SWAC right now. Maybe someone will pick him up cause of the job he's done at Texas Southern, but obviously he hadn't done well enough at UAB to move up because no one hired him

Why was he fired again?


Your first thought me either or atleast at UaB. But ive heard of a coach hanging his hat on a schedule full of cupcakes after 1 NCAA tournament win and a call from his daddy wonder where is the prestige in that. Maybe Davis was fired for not winning tournament games since thats what most gripe about.

The fact of the matter is Davis got canned for the expectations some had after Anderson. Also nobody has done as well as Anderson since and in a weaker conference since Davis. Also Memphis was here when Davis was MTSU isnt that Memphis squad.Davis had four years of postseason play the big tournament he lost and the second one had great moments for three years.

I thought the reason was burn out and he's getting looks now because he's dancing, not right now but he made it. Eshan is watching. Another fact is Mike Davis seems to be dominating his one bid conference something UaB isnt doing. Since the split ive seen Mike Davis in more tournament appearances then UAB.


So we should be singing the praise of Anderson since no coach since him has had multiple NCAA tournament wins and appearances. Haase lost more games and had a terrible record against P5s his best two wins is the one point tourney win, and the NC win. I think Davis had better wins outside not winning one NCAA game. Guess the Iowa State was national championship to some for Haase

Guess the Iowa State was national championship to some for Haase

I don't think anyone is praising Haase (at least I'm not). I don't even think Haase is a great coach, but it seems like you defend specific coaches even when the facts are against you. I don't understand that. I do think Haase learned on the job and improved as time went on. However, Davis was a terrible tourney coach during his time at UAB and had his foot out the door it seemed to a lot of people = why he got fired. Personally I would've given him another year and was sad to see him get fired. It's not like he was just losing to Memphis in the CUSA tournament though. He was losing to lower seeded teams consistently nearly every CUSA tournament.

FWIW, I think Davis is a superior game coach to Haase or Ehsan, but there's a reason he's not still here. And of course Anderson was a great coach at UAB. He's a good coach period. Is anyone even disputing that?

As a side note, we like to blame the coaches a lot, but UAB is a job that has fallen dramatically. Can't put it all on coaches. We're behind in money (paying our men's basketball head coach something like 450k in the year 2017), facilities, and conference affiliation. Can't expect the coaches to be great at their jobs when our own resources are pretty poor comparatively.

What facts are against me? Haase won one NCAA tourney game. What maybe five in four years worth of cusa championship games with one championship. Lost every reason season tournament game and didnt have a top 50 his best year. One maybe what three power 6 games? No top 25 ranking. Haase lost to a low seed in cusa 3.0

I defend coaches who gets railed. I dont think Davis and Magee were awful. They both couldve done better. They both put the drafted Blazers in the big leagues. I think Davis got UaB ranked. Anderson doesnt have the greatest tournament record here but he and Davis coached in better versions of cusa. Davis and Anderson both made the tournament this year and current seem to be in good places with good situations.




Totally agree with the last part no way unt hc should make more than UaB's.

I thought the reason was burn out and he's getting looks now because he's dancing, not right now but he made it. Eshan is watching. Another fact is Mike Davis seems to be dominating his one bid conference something UaB isnt doing. Since the split ive seen Mike Davis in more tournament appearances then UAB.


So we should be singing the praise of Anderson since no coach since him has had multiple NCAA tournament wins and appearances. Haase lost more games and had a terrible record against P5s his best two wins is the one point tourney win, and the NC win. I think Davis had better wins outside not winning one NCAA game. Guess the Iowa State was national championship to some for Haase

One can hang is hat on a final four appearance as a HC.

Who has the highest winning percentage at UaB usually does it for some. Lol

Or things like last ranking appearance, number of guys drafted, top 25 wins, top 50 wins , maybe apr, or even Power5 wins for some.

Best school record got broken by a soft record but that too.
Literally never heard a coach get fired because "not enough of his players get drafted!" Or "ahhhhh he couldn't win anything in the post season but he had such a good overall winning percentage!"

Getting in the NCAA and then winning some games is all that matters really

Get a grip. There's a reason Davis is in the SWAC right now. Maybe someone will pick him up cause of the job he's done at Texas Southern, but obviously he hadn't done well enough at UAB to move up because no one hired him

Why was he fired again?


Your first thought me either or atleast at UaB. But ive heard of a coach hanging his hat on a schedule full of cupcakes after 1 NCAA tournament win and a call from his daddy wonder where is the prestige in that. Maybe Davis was fired for not winning tournament games since thats what most gripe about.

I don't think anyone is praising Haase (at least I'm not). I don't even think Haase is a great coach, but it seems like you defend specific coaches even when the facts are against you. I don't understand that. I do think Haase learned on the job and improved as time went on. However, Davis was a terrible tourney coach during his time at UAB and had his foot out the door it seemed to a lot of people = why he got fired. Personally I would've given him another year and was sad to see him get fired. It's not like he was just losing to Memphis in the CUSA tournament though. He was losing to lower seeded teams consistently nearly every CUSA tournament.

FWIW, I think Davis is a superior game coach to Haase or Ehsan, but there's a reason he's not still here. And of course Anderson was a great coach at UAB. He's a good coach period. Is anyone even disputing that?

As a side note, we like to blame the coaches a lot, but UAB is a job that has fallen dramatically. Can't put it all on coaches. We're behind in money (paying our men's basketball head coach something like 450k in the year 2017), facilities, and conference affiliation. Can't expect the coaches to be great at their jobs when our own resources are pretty poor comparatively.

What facts are against me? Haase won one NCAA tourney game. What maybe five in four years worth of cusa championship games with one championship. Lost every reason season tournament game and didnt have a top 50 his best year. One maybe what three power 6 games? No top 25 ranking. Haase lost to a low seed in cusa 3.0

I defend coaches who gets railed. I dont think Davis and Magee were awful. They both couldve done better. They both put the drafted Blazers in the big leagues. I think Davis got UaB ranked. Anderson doesnt have the greatest tournament record here but he and Davis coached in better versions of cusa. Davis and Anderson both made the tournament this year and current seem to be in good places with good situations.




Totally agree with the last part no way unt hc should make more than UaB's.

We're arguing over how Mike Davis was a terrible post season tourney coach at UAB. At UAB he has a terrible tourney record looking at the numbers I've already posted. You're somehow trying to make the argument that Haase is worse even though Haase has a CUSA tournament championship and beat the overall #3 seed Iowa State in the NCAA tournament. Haase had 2 less years than Mike Davis. We're arguing over post season tournaments. Would Haase or Davis have done better in each others shoes? Not a clue, but guess what? We can't time travel so all we have to look at is what happened in their own post season tournaments.

Ask 100 people randomly what they remember the most about UAB men's basketball in the past 5-10 years. The answer will 100% not be "Mike Davis' great winning percentage!"

It will be: "UAB beating Iowa State in the NCAA tournament as a 14 seed." That's why he moved up to Stanford <---important information here

No one is saying Davis is some terrible game coach. He's not, but he failed when it came to postseason play at UAB. If he hadn't, he would still be here or have moved up to a better job instead of a worse one. <---important information here

Magee produced the worst season in UAB football history in an already watered down CUSA. Worst actual in game football coach we ever had regardless of his recruiting. Sports reference shows the 2013 UAB team as the worst team out of all 19 teams. Can't even be argued with that it was the worst defense UAB has ever had. Gave up 44 points a game. 62 points given up to a 1-11 Southern Miss team. His lone wins were against a 1-11 FIU team in overtime and against a .500 FCS school where they put nearly 30 points on us on our home field. Even in most of that, I don't *blame* Magee. UAB was already planning on killing its own football program and 80-90% of coaches wouldn't have had an honest chance here.

And Anderson has a good tournament record here. He went to the NIT quarterfinals, an NCAA sweet sixteen, a second round, and a first round in 4 years. That's a great record. That's why he moved up <----important information here


No easier way to spells these things out for you so I'm done with this thread. Good luck

Who did he play for? And no matter how many for sleep jokes you have he's still one of the best to ever wear green and gold. He's a drafted Blazer sleep on that.

We can't time travel so all we have to look at is what happened in their own post season tournaments.

im speaking overall he was a good coach here just wasn't as big a splash we thought. Davis and Anderson could win this league easily. They didnt coach in the worst this conference has been in. Haase had advantages others didnt but yes he wom three games in bham with a 16-15 team. Haase had two years of postseason play compared to Davis's four.

You would be surprised about who keeps up with UaB now. Yes thats the last great thing that happen here. In tha same time Davis was there too. Still a great win even though iowa state took us lightly.


No one is saying Davis is some terrible game coach. He's not, but [b]he failed
when it came to postseason play at UAB. If he hadn't, he would still be here or have moved up to a better job instead of a worse one. <---important information here


Ive heard he was fired for shopping himself or burn out. He landed a job right after and turned it around. I dont know what offers had right after UaB. And UaB only pays their coach 200k more.


Magee produced the worst season in UAB football history in an already watered down CUSA. Worst actual in game football coach we ever had regardless of his recruiting.

UAB was already planning on killing its own football program and 80-90% of coaches wouldn't have had an honest chance here.

He followed Callaway. Had a better O, same ST, and a similar terrible D. I wonder who had the worst loss in school history? And yes i wouldve left too if i were magee. He didnt get the chance to suck for four years then get a fifth from a drinking buddy. Magee loss games but there werent Callaway bad.



And Anderson has a good tournament record here. He went to the NIT quarterfinals, an NCAA sweet sixteen, a second round, and a first round in 4 years. That's a great record. That's why he moved up <----important information here



Well count the NIT with all of them then Davis doesnt look so bad. I count the NIT. He moved up because he went to the postseason four straight years and not two with a call from daddy.


No easier way to spells these things out for you so I'm done with this thread. Good luck.


No need for your spelling. Im not concerned about Davis's UaB record not too long watch him and Anderson back to back in current NCAA games thats what ive been talking about. [/b]
