Kennedy is the not the right man for the job and he shouldn't be kept but you guys have to put some blame on the players tonight! Nobody played defense, couldn't hit free throws, Summers being careless with ball all night, Henderson with horrible shot selection and it just goes on and on. This team did not play with any urgency at all and that's the players fault
Here I am! Did any of you Ak hater's ever play a competitive sport? Did anyone have to get you up to play? Ak did his damndest to get em going. He can't shoot, he can't rebound, he can't pass and dribble! He did recruit em tho. I do agree this was disastrous for us Rebel faithful. It sucks! He is probably gone but who the hell is coming in with the players we have left and do any better? I just hope next year we are not in the same shape State is in right now. Guess we have to start some where. Y'all enjoy the firing and don't hold your breath for some miracle coach. Bet Ak is scooped up in a hurry and we have a hard time finding the "miracle man". I do hope we find him and he wins 20 a year and takes us forward. We are all Rebels so Hotty Toddy by damn! PS-I'll be in my seat Tuesday!!!
Refer to first post on this page. Thanks.
Guess my post was taken down before it got up, oh well! Ak can't pass, dribble, or shoot but he did recruit em. Hope we get y'all's miracle man cause what I see for Reb Bball next year is resembling State this year. Ak will be scooped up and we will have a hard time hiring someone better. Ross is very good and I have lots of faith in him. Let's move on and Hotty Toddy! PS- I will be in my seat Tuesday'
13, can you read or are you blinded by hate. I didn't defend him nor his player's. he is gone! I just don't know where we go from here, I hope up but I have my doubts. Everyone, this time next year, recall 13's comments.
It went over your head I suppose. Where we go from here would be by hiring a coach that can prepare our boys for the game and who can manage a game.
Let's see whose head it's over next year!!! I have my thinking on straight not hate. Player 's have to play! Yes, a coach makes a difference and I have admitted that. He is gone, I just hope we can hire a very good replacement! Hotty Toddy
So snide. Our team had no offensive or defensive strategy this season. I do not think it will be hard to find a better replacement nor do I think we will miss AK. I'd just assume be in the cellar as to the NIT every year
Get em all send om back to tennessee georgia and florida in search of talent this is our State- Oxfordawg
I have held my thoughts on this subject until now. I believe AK is a good coach, but I also believe he will be gone at the end of the season. As Rebel fans, we need to ask ourselves what coach can recruit the kind of talent needed to consistently win with our present facilities. I know there is a new arena on the horizon, but the last time I checked not even the smallest amount of dirt has been turned. Promises are nice, but potential recruits need to see serious emphasis put on improving facilities now. Until then, it doesn't matter who the coach is, he will have to try to build a program on hope. That, my friends is a hard thing to sell kids on these days.
The new arena is not a pipe dream. It's happening. Check out forward rebels campaign website. The funding is in place and there is a concrete plan laid out. AK is a good recruiter, just not a great game coach "Think Orgeron". The great news is we finally have an AD that gets it and is making wonderful things happen at Ole Miss!
Don't think I said the arena was a pipe dream, but it Is a few years away. I was recruited to play baseball at Ole Miss and was promised I would get to play in a new stadium. They had the drawings, funding was coming, everything sounded good. First game in that new stadium was played two years after I graduated. I'm just saying that until there is visible movement any coach is going to have a hard time recruiting and competing against the traditional Big Dance teams.
I think CHF has shown what can b accomplished under extremely difficult circumstances. The right coach CAN be a game changer. Wonder if Archie can spearhead the search for a new bbal coach?
He has a great track record!!
Newbie would hAve played hard.
24 up votes and 3 / 4 down votes is almost like giving everyone a trophy, win or lose.
Kennedy is directly responsible for everything you listed. There is a bench for summers....and the lack of developing a NBA type player like Buckner is almost criminal.
Someone that loves Ole Miss.
That is critical for this school.
See Hugh Freeze.
