Look at the comments when Blaine was a coach and we were top 50?

Remember the whining over the offense? Recruiting?

I wasn’t on the boards then. I was a student back when we made our last two tourney appearances. It was awesome to be there when we beat Notre Dame in the first round, but so rough when we lost to butler on the buzzer beater. Those were good times.

And certain posters that probably wont admit it complained (and wanted him fired) bc “hes only won 1 tourney game”. Direct quote

I wanted him fired when he hasn't won a tourney game in his first 8 years. I thought we could do better. I guess i was wrong lol.

I'll admit i was wrong about Blaine if you admit that a has been coach who's team has lost just about EVERY top 50 or meaningful game they've played for 5 straight years is not the right guy for our program.

Oh wait, you think he's great and we should wait 10 years because it's worked out once in history with Kermit Davis lol, great plan.

Here's my letter:

Dear wood,

Thank you for hiring your friend from uva. He's reminded me how much I miss a sober Blaine Taylor. While you've overseen the destruction of a once storied women's basketball program, a once storied field hockey program and then made another nepotistic hire with finwood, you've done a fine job of helping odu live up to its motto of "aim for the nit". Jeff jones was the perfect hire to fool a completely delusional fanbase into thinking you are a mildly competent athletic director. Your bungling of our new football stadium only highlights your complete ineptitude in all things that are old dominion athletics.

I'm glad you were able to put together such a woefully pathetic schedule that winning 23 basketball games can't even get us into the top 70 of the rpi. You've done just enough to please the sheeple and because of that, we probably won't be back to the tourney anytime within the next 5 years at a minimum with your lackey as our coach.

In short, thanks for nothing, it hasn't been a pleasure.

There's a line from Forest Gump that fits quite well here. I believe I will leave it to you guys to figure out which one it is.

Count your blessings. This could be your AD:




Actually, I reckon a fair number here would be 100% on board with their AD getting caught up in your conspiracy theories, complaining to the C-USA ofc that the officiating continually favors the opponent no matter who they are etc etc...

Dear Wood Selig,

Coach Jones is doing a great job! Is a lifetime contract in the works for the Coach?

Thanks!

If ODU wins the conference tournament, you have to be willing to shutdown your posting for next basketball season. You have been the most negative poster on this board.

jasdf got the quote right, but certainly not my intention. It is this thread that was on my mind when I posted, and I stand by that sentiment.

There are others competing for the distinction. The season isn’t over yet!

RE: How many here have written to Broderick or Selig re firing Jones?
How about we don't fire our coach right about now?
We kinda need him if we're going to win three games, right?

Can we put this thread on ice for a few days? Hopefully for a few weeks?

This team just completed the season with a 24-6 record and in second place in the conference standings. The fact that anyone would even consider firing a coach under these circumstances is nothing short of unfathomable. Get a grip. Your ludicrosity meter is pegged.
