    You keep telling yourself that. Maybe we can hire Izzo's son as our next coach. I am sure he's qualified.

    You're right. Molinari is the best we can do. Great take.

    Looks like Pitino will need to figure out how to win 4 out of the last 7.

    If they only win 3 they probably need at least 2 wins in the B1G Tourney.

    Either way I don’t see it happening.

    Yep. If they win Wednesday I give them a 50-60% chance at making it. If they lose, 10% at best. And Nebraska is way overdue for a win, and they aren't winning at Purdue today. Ugh.

    Good question....why waste your energy on the Gophers


    Cheer for Bucky instead

    The best approach at this point is to fire him tomorrow. It will give us a larger window of time to find the next coach. His tenure here has been at utter failure. Have fun Rick coaching at Pacific Palisades and say hi to Dan Monson for us.

    If they lose a couple more I can see this argument. Can't do that yet.

    I'm fairly confident this team won't make the NCAA tournament as I think they would need to win four of their last seven to do that. I also see little chance of them winning more than one game in the Big Ten tournament and there's a fair chance they won't win any because they're not so likely to play on Wednesday this year. If things go as expected, I say fire Pitino after the Big Ten tournament and let the assistants handle the team in the NIT if they get a bid.

    No that would not be the right move. They still have a shot at the NCAA Tournament....that would be a mess if we did that. Let the season play out and see what happens. While I'm not a fan of Pitino, he deserves the chance to coach out this year at least. I'm not convinced he will be fired if we miss the tournament. But firing him now is not the correct move.

    Correct. It would also be considered a low class move by other coaches, something you only do in the case of a complete breakdown.

    If your an assistant coach or even the HC , how do you not show Coffey tape of a left hander dribbling right (especially catching a ball by jump stopping with the ability to go either hand) and show Murphy how to shoot a jump shot over 3 years and 4 years respectively? Ridiculous.

    At this point I would fire him even if he makes the tournament. This program is going nowhere. We fired Tubby after he won a game. And I believe his overall and B1G records are better than Pitinos.

    Have you ever watched a tape of Tiger Woods? How's your golf game?

    There is no doubt in my mind that both players have been worked on regarding these aspects. The rest is on the player and sometimes it's just not in them. You think Wisconsin works on Happ's shooting? Think how amazing he could be if he could shoot free throws and outside jumpers.

But your choice wouldn't make sense. By the way those who say they saw signs before Lynch was suspended that the team wasn't playing as well as they could, were right. It was already known by Lynch that the situation was under investigation and it no doubt affected his play. He wasn't himself for his last month.

    So let me ask you, without the injuries and the Lynch suspension do you think they would have at least made the NCAAs?
    Which poll were we ranked 10th in?

    Kinda sounds like somebody is re-inventing history

    I thought we were 10th- it turns out that we were 12th in both the coaches and the AP poll when we were 7-0. Same in USA Today. I wasn't trying to revise history-I'd say 12th is pretty close...but my bad.
