      Larry hasn’t shown he’s capable of winning big games without bonafide NBA talent on his roster.

        We haven’t had a decent coach since Majerus; and frankly I’ve stopped watching since that time.

          Copy. Lost interest in Ute BB 3-4 years ago when the player exodus started. LK can’t hide behind this being a coach issue any longer. Agree, if one starter transfers, LK needs to go. Problem is, LK has too much coach celebrity power in the college BB world so doubtful Harlan does anything about it.

      Las Vegas has us as a 12 1/2 point dog – frankly, I’d be satisfied with a game that close.

      On the other hand, we have all been saying all year, that with this young a team, you never know what (good or bad) to expect, so I’ll watch in case we actually pull out a win, but also won’t be surprised if we lose by 30.

      And I’m sticking with my plan of giving Coach K and staff one more year. If we see no more critical transfers at the end of this season, and we make the NCAA tourney at the end of next year, I’ll assume that means a return to the promise I thought I saw in the program a few years ago.

      If not, I won’t be renewing the season tickets I’ve been buying during the many years of mediocrity or worse since Majerus.

        Back in the Big Rick era could you ever have imagined saying something like that?

          You’re right Tony, I would never have imagined during the Majerus era, (or anytime in my lifetime before that), that we would ever have (what it is now 16 years since Majerus) this many years with largely mediocre basketball, falling attendance, only a few post season visits, and even fewer post season wins.

          I do remember, when it was announced that Majerus would not be returning, that many people I know were not only happy, but thought that we would improve with the next hire.  I remember thinking we’ll be lucky if we ever have a coach as good as Majerus again, and we’ll be even luckier if it’s one of the next 3 or 4 hires.  That was based upon watching what other bigger programs were going through trying to replace great coaches.

          It turns out sorrowfully, that I was more right than wrong.

          That said, I did see some hope a few years ago with this staff, so I haven’t given up quite yet.
