    Penny Hardaway is Memphis’ head coach. Has 5 top 100 recruits (4 top 40) meanwhile their former coach is crapping the bed at GT in a recruiting hotbed for college basketball. Oof...

    I was just saying to myself how we needed another thread about Partner's poor recruiting.

    There aren't many P5 teams that completely whiff on a recruiting class. Or that have only one post player on the roster.

    I'm not really wanting to crap on Pastner as I've tried to be patient. I'm still buying season tickets in a PSL zone as an example. But this point is even sadder when you realize we have a highly respected big man coach on staff in Reveno.

    Pastner shows it's one thing to say you're all about recruiting, it's another to make it happen. His recruiting has been worse than Gregory's... But at least he could recruit a PG

    I can't believe we pay someone millions to be this bad

    To play devil's advocate, Penny Hardaway hasn't been embroiled in a PR nightmare lawsuit with a complete nutso hell-bent on destroying his previous favorite person in the whole world.

    On one hand, I can totally see how this would be cause for parting ways with Pastner, on the other hand it gives me pause how easy it would be for some person with a personality disorder and free time to become obsessed with someone and complicate their career.

    Most people have enough common sense to avoid becoming entangled with someone like this.

    I think that you are giving "most people" too much credit

    I am not aware of a similar situation with any other college football or basketball coach.

    Or Penny Hardaway is a genuine good dude and coach meanwhile Pastner is the fakiest fake snake oil salesman in the history of D1 basketball. A ööööing snake.

    öööö Pastner.

    Memphis recruits itself in a lot of ways and keep it real, if you're a 17 year old basketball star, who do you wanna play for between Penny and Pastner?

    I wonder what Penny’s buyout is.

    Did you ever read a book growing up? Can you not communicate without the use of sophomoric words?

    This depends, like when choosing all teams in all sports.
