Don't know if I agree with everything you've said, but I agree with the title of your post. If the coaching change is made now, I (and many others I think) will be seriously questioning McCaw's judgement/motives.

Minutemanfan, what do you know about Everhart that leads you to believe his hiring will worsen the program? I'm just wondering because I know pretty much nothing about him. If this talk of the coaching change is for real, it sounds pretty fishy. It seems like McCaw is doing this to get one of his gu...

I agree. If we are going to do this, we need to do it quickly, especially at this stage. Assuming there is truth to this rumor, the new coach is going to have a lot of work to do recruiting. He'll not only need to fill the vacant scholarships, he's also going to have to re-recruit Bowers and Maxwell...

I personally think sitting out a yr can be a good thing for a player who transfers. He has time to get his feet wet with another coach and a different style, and when he gets to play he's a year older too.

:? I just checked out a little stuff on his bio and his team's past records, and I'm not overly impressed by him based on that. Recently, he took over a Northeastern team that went something like 11-17, and the following year they finished with a 7-21 record or something like that. This year they fi...

This is probably just wild speculation. The only way I could see this happening is if the admin put out some feelers and some bigtime coaches gave a positive response, and I don't know if I see that happening. For better or worse, Lappas will probably be here at least another year.

...And I know you can't put to much stock in stats, but it really caught my eye that he averaged 12 assists per game as a pg last season. That is very unusual to see for a guy 6-5. I also remember reading a scouting report that says he has a very calm presence with the ball in traffic, which is some...

Not at all. How many good players in college are over 6-9 anyway? I'll take a 6-9 skilled player over a 7 ft cluts any day of the wk.

I hope that Lasme changes his mind. I know some of his motives for leaving come across as a little selfish and short sighted, but it's so strange and surprising to me because he never seemed to be bad for the team chemistry. He never really played selfishly, in fact, I remember the coach once saying...

The language here is a little strong. I certainly wouldn't call Lasme a wimp after the toughness he has shown on the court, playing as hard as any player on the team, with some major injuries no less. Of course we're disappointed for him and for the team. But still, keep things in perspective...he's...

That sounds like a fair assessment of who will start. I've heard from a good source that Briggs was our most dominant post player at practices this past season, so I'm guessing that he will start. Freeman is a question mark since he's been sitting out a season and we have yet to know how good he act...
