Balado
Illinois beat asu by 39 and apparently Balado was trash talking with the fans and he was trash talking with Illinois players (his usual MO). He said things to our players in LR the past two seasons. Thought Walker was going to come unglued. Seems like Walker called a timeout and did nothing but stare a hole in Balado for about 30 seconds.

I've argued that Balado has put together a very talented team at ASU this year. If he does not finish near the top of the league, with the talent I think he has, then he deserves the criticism he gets from ASU fans and should be let go.

Didn't get off to a very good start against Illinois, but they are apparently a very good team.

RE: Balado
I've heard from our end that there's more to the story than what is being told, but Mike still has a poor record dealing with fans, and needs to not let them get to him.

I'm judging him by results alone this year.

Maybe there is more to the story. But I have seen him trash talk our players for no reason.

RE: Balado
I was on the balado bandwagon before we hired Grant and after we lost him to UNT and landed Balado I was convinced mens basketball would have a run similar to football and boy was I completely wrong

Balado has been an absolute disappointment (both coaching wise and in general)

BTW, what is the rest of the story? If you have something more, do tell. Inquiring minds want to know.

No one ever beats the rest of the story. And it doesn’t matter. As a coach there’s o excuse. Fire him already.

No. Chiefsfan is defending the defenseless belado. If he knows something he should put up or shut up. He has made the same defense on the asu board but even there he has not offered the "other side of the story."

I don't defend Balado, I just don't judge him by his actions with players and fans, only coaching merit.

I want to win, I don't care one iota how we're viewed as long as we win.
