  • Weak on the SID/Marketing department folks who just copied and pasted half of the Barford "letter" too. I never thought these kids were writing these verbatim, but still.. at least try to mix it up.

  • I'm getting chills just thinking about Macon and Barford being back and Hawg Ball next year! Go Hogs!!

  • Well of course fcj said those things to cover for MA if those two did leave, because with fcj it's what make Mike looks good above everything, including the team or the players.

    I'm glad they are staying, should mean another good season, but it had more to do with the prospect, or lack thereof, of getting a good pro deal right now than anything else.
    If you say so. There you go again. Just can't help yourself can you? Every time something good is said about CMA you just have to come back with something. That's cool though. Just keep doing what you do, It makes you look great. ;)

    It's understandable that he's feeling a little salty today, Barford and Macon are coming back and there's nothing he can do about it but come on here and bich.

    What parts were copy/pasted?

  • This is exciting for the team and fans, and hopefully we will follow up last year's season with an even better one. I love Barford's game, and the moxy Macon brings is fantastic. Still love that he told the Kentucky players he would meet them out back.
  • #60 by PorkRinds on 10 May 2017
  • I sorta feel like th "is Macon coming back" was cooked up to allow fans something to celebrate and be excited about. I'm cool with it even if that was the point, but it does seem that way.

    What part of "I am glad they are coming back because it means a good season" are you having trouble comprehending?

    FCJ makes 5 posts in a month and none in 2 weeks, and comes back with a post praising Mike for something he himself said Mike had no control over just a few weeks ago.

    It is called being realistic.

    As for myself, I am super glad both guys decided to come back, regardless of the reason. It looks like we might have another good year, hopefully even better than this past season. I just hope folks don't get too carried away with their expectations.

    While it is true that Mike had no control over Macon's decision, he certainly had a part in Macon's decision to come back and play for him. No need to try to diminish that role and CMA does deserve some credit.

    Being realistic about what? Forrest City Joe's love for Mike Anderson? Surely everybody knows that by now. Like the other poster above said, old news. What's the problem? If Forrest City Joe loves Mike Anderson basketball just as much as hogsanity loves Bret Bielema football then let it be.

    But I'm sure hogsanity doesn't see his love and excuse making for Bret Bielema as a problem... :-\

    So Mike had it great either way. If Macon leaves, Mike had no control, but if Macon comes back it is due, at least partly, to Mike? Umm, yea, sure?

    He came back because he deemed it a better move for himself than trying to go pro at this time.

    Yeah, you are right. People can feel the way they want. I guess I am just warning not to be too expectant or you might be let down. The team ended on a high for sure. I feel very good about the team, but I have been a sports fan for years and a hog fan most. I have learned not to get too high. Well on the team this is.

    I try not to get too high on anything. I'm just optimistic until given a reason not to be. Keep it simple.
  • #81 by hogsanity on 10 May 2017
  • Question, do you think he would have come back if Mike hadn't wanted him too?

    I answer to your question, no, if Mike had not wanted his best player back for some reason, no, it is likely he would not have come back. Since Mike was probably on bent knee begging him to come back, we'll never know.

    But had he thought it was in his best interest to go, he would have, regardless of what Mike wanted.

    You also spent countless posts saying Macon should go if that's what is best for him. Had this went the other way and Macon left, you would be blasting Mike for not keeping him here. Don't kid yourself.

    Which is what everyone here, except you, had been saying for a month now. You argued countless times that coming back may not have been the best move. Looks like you too tried to play both sides.

    and if you go look, right after they both said they were exploring their options, i said you can't blame Mike if they leave.
  • #85 by HoopS on 10 May 2017
  • Joe really likes having MA as our coach.

    Hogsanity never wanted him to begin with and feels he will do just enough not to be fired.

    All posts from either are viewed through that lense for me.
  • #86 by mhuff on 10 May 2017
  • I don't blame a coach or a player when they leave unless the coach has not prepared for that possibility. I also blame the coach if he wastes talent. This time CMA can't be criticized for not recruiting . I also would give him credit for better defense after the Missouri game- I don't know if he coached it or someone else. Who cares... good or bad CMA is going to get credit or discredit. im would like to see an assistant from Memphis .Perhaps Cleveland will get a head coaching job. Meanwhile, they should triple Thurman's salary

    It appears the roster is now set for next year, assuming the 'Macon isn't going to class' rumors are just that and all is well there. Guess we'll see on that.

    As posted a while back in my "State of the Hogs: My Take", on paper next season looks like a close comparison to this season.

    You lose some key pieces in Kingsley, Hannahs, and Watkins.

    But Barford and Macon should shine even more, and consistently more, in Year 2, as most jucos do.
    Gafford should be a very nice replacement for Kingsley.
    Darious Hall could contribute from the start.
    Thompson should be solid as a senior.
    Beard should be solid.
    Jones should play more.
    Other returnees should be a tad better.

    Add it all up and on paper it looks like you might see a repeat of 2016-17. Not a title-contender, but a very nice squad. One that on paper looks capable of repeating something like 26-10.

    As someone said, there is some carryover excitement which should lead to more fan interest from the get-go.

    Biggest concern I have is losing Hannahs and his dagger 3s and clutch scoring. He took over some games last year, Vandy on the road, S Car on the road, LSU on the road come to mind. Who's going to deliver those clutch buckets right when you need them most? For the 3s part of that, that's where CJ Jones may step into a role. Those 3-balls are huge.

    Everyone knows by now that​ anytime you say something positive you do it with a but this or that still sucks because MA is coach and some people like it.

    It would be nice if you stopped the negativity but you know you won't as long as MA coaches because just like there are people with an irrational love of MA, you have an irrational hate of the idea of him as coach.

    Exactly, ding ding ding!!! All Mike can do is try to get them to come back and if they don't he still did his part.

    He is physical in the paint. The thing is every time he gets physical it's a foul where when other bigs in the conference besides him and Thomas can get away with murder and a foul not be called. Just sayin...I know hogsanity will dispute this but the proof is in the pudding. Go back and watch the games and you will see how many ticky tack fouls those two get called for compared to the others.
  • #95 by HoopS on 11 May 2017
  • It would be nice if people could come together to support our team even if we hired someone they felt wasn't the best fit. But that would be boring. And heaven forbid, you may even look like a homer for your team. Perish the thought. It's so bad. Homers are the Debil, Bobby Bouchet.

    Heck, I didn't want Anderson as our coach. I wanted Gregg Marshall. But reality is I'm with a Hog fan either way and support my teams either way. I could probably be the cool guy and trash whoever I didn't originally want every chance I got. If you look hard enough you can find fault in anyone and nitpick it. That doesn't make you smart or realistic. It makes you an annoying nitpicker. The difference is some people can find joy in supporting their team even if things aren't perfect and others can't. They seek perfection and done the way they want it. They will never be satisfied with some coaches and they'll make sure to let you know every time they see what is a mistake in their eyes. You can join them in that misery or learn to ignore it.

     You won't change some people. That's fine. Just know that what some see as logical, others see as homerism or negativity. It is what it is.

    For me, I'm excited for our program.

  • And at 21 you'll be trying to convince everyone that we may not make the tournament. Wasn't that you, or am I misremembering?

    They should get in, if the schedule turns out to be what it looks like now as far as how opponents perform for their seasons ( somethig the Hogs have no control over ) with 21, maybe as few as 19.

    Last season schedule and this seasons are two very different things. Last years ooc schedule turned out to be pretty bad, except for Mn and OSu. hey will play more than that in the pn80 or whatever its called.

    But, and this goes for pretty much all of college basketball in the p5 leagues unless you have an exceptionally strong schedule and you are likely on the bubble with 19-20 wins.
  • #100 by southarkhog06 on 11 May 2017
  • Macon coming back may mean a sweet sixteen or better. Its truly awesome and I'm thrilled he made the decision to stay. Having said that, just a few weeks ago you attacked several posters claiming the decision was all Macon's to make and Mike had no control and nothing to do with it (yes I can quote it from your post history). Now you are giving credit to Mike for him staying. Now personally, I think Mike DID play a big role in him staying but wanted to point out the hypocrisy in your posts and for all your screaming about this forum you should realize a lot of the problems here fall directly at your feet. I think you purposely troll the posters here and quite frankly it pisses me off.
    PREACH!!!!
