To me this move (along with the new bball practice facility) tells me we're serious about trying to get in the AAC which is encouraging. Hopefully the AAC gets the message.

RE: Ehsan Fired
Yep, the best team in the middle pod in almost the worst conference in b-ball. There’s your reason to keep him

We hand away $1.6 million over 4 years, yet he’s the one that deserves better.

Won 5 of last 7 games, most in the middle pod.

Remember that time we fired Davis and he went 9-7 in cusa?

I’m sick of everytime we make a choice of termination that we get the pity party article, but they don’t do the same for the other coaches at other universities in this state.

No matter, what we do or want. There’s still always something published that has us in the wrong. We can’t expect more, just have to accept our place at the bottom of the totem pole and hope that something just magically makes us relevant over time.

what a terrible article
i will argue that this year was his best coaching job yet...but thats not saying a ton

I would really like moving into the AAC making possible a resumption of the "Battle for the Bones" rivalry with Memphis and perhaps with Houston. It is likely however that their conference "IN BOX" has applications from numerous Sunbelt, C-USA, MWC and other G5 teams. In the meantime, the AAC is probably waiting to find out when / if the Big 12 is going to reconstitute itself, likely at their expense. The decade of the 2020s may see major changes in the conference landscape including the rise of P6 or P7 conference labels beyond the present P5. The rise of primarily larger urban university powers to compete with the "old order" mainly rural universities may bring this into being.

He's probably moved on like a few others that didn't like the even-handed moderation. Not being able to count on the mods winning their arguments for them made this an inhospitable place. The truth is the truth and Ehsan's detractors were right all along and proven so.

Ehsan is about as much a D1 head coach as Jude is a D1 player.

I know you have connects but in order for UAB to get Forbes he would have to be interested in the job. Why would Forbes want to leave a program in low major conference for another program in a low major conference when your coaching trajectory is trending up?

Maybe after Haase left UAB could have gotten Forbes but that ship has clearly sailed now.

I like AK (and TJ) but I also wish we were aiming a little higher. Might not be realistic but we need a major jump start to our credibility. Andy is an improvement but not really a shot heard round the basketball world.

Give us a few examples of who a "shot heard round the basketball world" might be outside of stealing a head coach from a major D-1 program. That isn't happening this time around.

77 years old and fighting a sexual harassment suit. That's a candidate for president, not head basketball coach.

Pitino can't even last 15 seconds at Porcini's Restaurant.
