The New Coach Is......
« on: April 02, 2007, 08:55:11 am »

Dana Altman!!!!!!    ::) ::) ::)

I wish I had better news, but several of my sources have confirmed that this morning.

I wish we would wait a few more days and see what shakes out, but it looks like we are going to pull the trigger on this now.

I think fans still wouldn't be happy if we hired a Anthony Grant or Gregg Marshall, but I bet they would like it more than hiring Dana Altman. He has a LONG track record of so-so basketball.

I wish I had better news guys.

The University pilots have filed a flight plan to leave Atl and go to Omaha, arriving at 12:09 in Omaha.  My guess is we'll have Altman back in F'ville for a PC by 4:00.
Just in time for DTS to spin this hire.

Someone explain to me how hiring Altman will galvanize the fan base, put butts in the seats and inject the state with enthusiasm.  I have the same feeling about Altman as I do when my 2 yr old pees the bed and I have to change the sheets.

That's what I'm still trying to figure out....Why in the world do you offer the fan base steak (Calipari, Self, Floyd, Gillispie) and then show up to the party with a cheeto (altman)

Pathetic. Frank Broyles is a piece of $hit. If you are going to hire a mid level coach at least hire a young one who has the potential to maybe turn into a good one. Dana Altman got fired from K St. Thanks Frank, thanks for medicority. Fire Nutt.

Grant would've been the man if you're going mid-major.  As usual, JFB blew it if this is true.

Why not get Greg Marshall if we're going to get Altman.  Altman couldn't hanle the pressure at KSU, what makes Frank think he will in Arkansas.

If this is true, he will not have the immediate support from the fan base and will have to do wanders to when us over. He is going to walk into a tough crowd because he has to win me over before i talk good about him. I'm just not convinced he is even close to the right man for the job. I sure hope im wrong and he takes us to the promise land, sorry but dont see that happening.

We are going to hire a coach whose NCAA bids for the last three years are lower than the one we just fired? Trends and burnout mean alot in this profession, and this worries me a great deal. Let me take a stab at this - If Bev and Co. stay, Altman has a good year with someone elses players and then ... yawn, cry, throw things, etc. for the next five. I will pass.

Can't wait to see how many butts WON'T be in the seats if he is hired. If the PTB think Dana Altman is the one that will help sell tickets and put butts in the seats, then they are dumber than I previously thought.
