Candle In The Wind
My utmost apologies to Elton John and Bernie Taupin…

Goodbye Jason C.
Though we never really knew you at all
You made a mess with the MACs very best
On both sides of the ball
The fans crawled out of the Glass Bowl
And whispered into your brain
They set you on the coaching treadmill
And pleaded you change your game

And it seems to me you coached our team
Like a candle in the wind
Never knowing pass or run
When the game set in
And we would of liked to have known you
Leading Rockets teams with many wins
Your candle burned out long before
The winning ever did

Goodbye Jason C.
From the young fans in the twenty second row
Who want to see something more
than losing
More than just another MACtion s**tshow

And it seems to me you coached our team
Like a candle in the wind
Never knowing where to turn to when the flags poured in
And we would have liked to have known you
Fans who just wanted to win
Your candle burned out long before
The winning ever did
Your candle burned out long before
The winning ever did

Many if not all on this board agrees. And probably a lot more out there in T Town feel the same

RE: Candle In The Wind
The Fire Candle and Fire Coach K crowd are in unison. For Cullop, it's put up or shut up this year. Can a new AD overhaul every major sport on campus? I do appreciate the longevity of an AD. I hope we get someone who cares about this city and University.

RE: Candle In The Wind
timing of when a new AD will be in place (not until next May or June?) could be problematic in terms of getting rid of any of these coaches including Candle-unless you want MOB to do so this December and hire his replacement???

We had to tie CMU or NIU for the West at some point??? We've had a few top 4 seed teams. Were the 6 when we won the MAC tourney.

Won the west 4 straight years from 2010-2013, and were the #1 seed in the tourney 2 of those 4 years.

The thing to remember about Cullop is that she puts butts in the seats unlike any MAC coach ever, by a very large margin. Also has built up a loyal fan base that are regular donors to the program. To a school that subsidizes sports to such a large extent, those things are huge pluses and a major reason to keep her around.

I do not like basketball. Haven’t a clue why. But I took my granddaughter to the Lady Rockets on several occasions. It was a good time and we were victorious. Except for the ND game
