Should a 40 point loss to Tulsa qualify for a “it happens”?

I have to admit that I was one fan that was not for the Larry Brown hire. I think I can admit that I was wrong about that.

yeah, if by "it happens" you mean it happens every 27 years.

Absolutely! One of the very few sensible posts I’ve read today.

That's harsh. Overly harsh in fact. Year two and he's still learning. He really does need an experienced x's and o's coach on the bench beside him though.

The Tubby hire set this program back 10 years.

As much as I despised Tubby, he would have had us in the Tournament this year.

No way. He wouldn’t have had enough talent.

A good leader places people in place to be good at whatever he or she struggles with. I do not see Penny doing that, and it could be an issue of him not wanting to swallow his pride.

He'll either learn some humility out of this failed season or he will risk being yet another failed experiment here within the next two-three years.

Pearl would have been far better than what we have now

Just check Vegas

Uh, with who? Who in the hell would have come here to play for him? Damn sure not any 5 stars...

Tubby would have done exactly what he did in his failed tenure, sat on his ass, played ho hum ball and collected a check.

I guess Tubby had a point...

Don't build the expectations too fast...Penny should have listened to the old man because people here have lost it.

I understand the reasoning for running Tubby...There was no light at the end of the tunnel

But anyone with eyes can see the track ahead of this years crop of recruits is bright. If Penny gets them all to come back and they improve we will be fine next year...Yet the fire Penny crowd is already out if force.

If he doesn't sign anyone or if he loses a bunch of kids from this team then year I could see that sentiment...But right now it is silly.

Look at the 2004-2005 team that went 22-16...Had a 5 star point guard and 4 Star center and also some solid players around those young kids (Junior Carney, Senior Rice, Junior Hunt). People were calling for Cals head then as well...

Give Penny a chance to build it. This year doesn't look good but this squad has a bright future.

You don't have to recruit 5 stars to make the tournament.

I'm not saying he would have made a run or anything, but imo, he would have recruited 3 stars and jucos and developed them by the time the were juniors and seniors into a tourney team. I hate having to resort to that at Memphis, and we shouldn't have to... but I would bet a large sum that in year 4 he would have had us in the tournament.

I am a pro Penny guy.

Problem is his recruiting class is tied to MM and he is over his head coaching D1 college basketball

Next year's team, even if we have transfers, which we will, will be better l

Just check Vegas

There was a window where we could've had Pearl. But we gave Opie a 2.5 million contract extension for Dellavadova missing a 3 in the tournament. And we're still paying for it.

Pearl would've had us in the Final Four by now.... top 10, year in, year out.
