What do you want him to do,put a Gun to their head and make them stay?recruit bad players so they will stay? Mike Anderson or any coach can't stop a player from leaving if they want to go.it's not that hard to understand.
What do I want? To be good. What does that take? Securing good players. How he achieves that (short of NCAA violations), I don't care. Basically, I want a coach that players want to play for. These players are choosing to no longer play for MA; meanwhile, many players elsewhere are choosing to stay to play for their coach. Those coaches then win.
Just like he can't get a player to come here that doesn't want to. Is it any different than recruiting?
Nope no different at all; if anything, should be easier as your players should look up to you / you should be their mentor once in college whereas their HS/AAU/parents/etc. are the main mentors in HS. But exactly the issue. It's a chronic problem. To date, he hasn't been able to keep the best HS players in the state nor keep the best Razorbacks on the team. Keep BP and MQ, looking at an Elite 8 or F4 team that year. Get Kevaughn Allen and Monk, looking at a F4 or NC team this year. I am not saying it's easy, all I am saying is he has not been able to do these things, and if he had been able to, we would have been very good - it is doing these things that is requisite to being very good.
Those tides seem to be turning; if they are, that is huge - we should and will be good! If we lose our current players who have no hope of getting drafted this year, it appears MA really just does not have it in him. For one reason or another, players time and time again will have (again, IF they leave...if they stay, great - there is not an issue) demonstrated they do not want to play for him.
