Let's just be proactive...add next year also.
This will be the NCAA proving they are not worthless, since the FBI is doing their job in LSU, Auburn, Zona, Bama, & UL probe.
we get busted for the weakest öööö. we need to go full ole miss some day; go big or go home.
Fire everyone on the basketball side of things, burn down the current, "lower-tier ACC - can't make the NCAA tournament" complicitors (well, it should be a word), and start the hell over.
Obviously the program hasn't mastered the 'TECH'nicalities involved in the art of bagman-tality. Consider this episode an exercise in how not to do it.
The fact that rather than stepping up and defending the program, Pastner has his lawyer issue a statement defending him says all you need to know about his integrity. He needs to be removed for cause.
What's so bad about looking at tatas?
Anyone who supports the basketball program until the entire house is cleaned out is the enemy now.
Where do I submit my application Todd?
Cheap bastard, probably took em to Strokers instead of Cheetah, fire him!
Well well well .... looks like a window to fire Pastner with cause and without a buyout has opened.
Oh look - Labarrie is involved. How much do you want to bet Paul Hewitt's ability to recruit above all others is related to his willingness to do things like this above all others? Labarrie was a nobody under Hewitt as a player. But it looks like Hewitt taught him how to play the game dirty. Ron Bell and Pastner implicated as well.
CLEAN HOUSE TODD. You just got handed a get out of jail free card for your basketball program. USE IT.
In related Pastner news, the original Ron Bell whistle blower and Ron Bell himself are going to jail. Not in Arizona, weirdly, but in Georgia (hello karma?).
Time to hit the reset button: clean house and start over
The Final Four is when coaching moves happen. The NCAA and its timing are of course utter horse****, but as far as the future of the program goes you couldn't ask for a better news story or time for it to leak out in terms of firing EVERYBODY and starting over.
Let's see - Pastner is going to argue none of this is his fault, that recruiting will be great going forward. that we will make the NCAA tourney next year, that no one would even think of transferring out of our program and remember had Okogie been here this year we would have made the NCAA tourney if we just had not been disqualified. Oh ------- and he deserves a raise and extended contract.
That was last year.
Stansbury has done an excellent job with the football program. He needs to take decisive action with the basketball program now.
Quinlan is basically saying this is a formality and no big deal. ESPN article seems to indicate Bell and DLab will get a show cause. I dont think anything is going to happen to Pastner, honestly. Given that we have stood behind him thus far and there is nothing alleged that we didn't already know, I dont think we could fire him for cause.
Hello serendipitous publish date. That was published 359 days ago.
