Thanks for the memories Coach Altman!
« on: April 03, 2007, 06:55:47 pm »

I thought it would be great for all of us to put our favorite moments of Dana Altman's time here.

Personally, mine was him talking it up with the guys on DTS last night. Man.. I'm going to miss him.

  On a positive Note, This may shine a bright National media light on the BAC. Someone may dig and find out why no coaches want to come to the land of OZ.

He did lie about one thing, he certainly isn't boring.

I would have loved for him to stay...


...but did anyone notice that he had a look on his face similar to the way you look after eating a big ole bowl of cereal and then realizing the milk is ruined?


He looked like someone had just killed his cat at the press conference.


best of luck coach Altman-you gotta follow your heart-or else you just might throw up!

Remember that time Coach Altman did the hog call? Yeah, Yeah. Remember that time Coach Altman said they press 40 minutes? Yeah, Yeah. Remember that time Coach Altman quit before the first day on the job? If  no other circumstances led to his demise other than being homesick then Im glad this Jabroni is gone. Fire Frank for hiring him.

Classic.  It did only seem like yesterday.  I think my favorite memory of Coach A was when he said he was going to retire here and how he was going to restore us to national prominence.  You will be greatly missed Coach A.  Best of luck at your new, well old, job.

I really will miss how he looked like Opie Taylor. Ho Hum, it made me forget about Coach Richardson. HAHAHAHA I actually said that with a strait face. Actaully I would pay to see that fight, Coach Richardson and Altman....... The memories. Oh and I have been looking at their board, they say this guy was classy? Only thing he did classy was talk to the media, the rest was a bunch of lies. I guess I should rememeber whos board I was on, half of them need a few lessons on being classy.

Oh man. You remember that game when coach Altman got that T. No wait. check that. Uhh . Okay, Okay. The time at SEC tourney when he. No no. There was that game against Duke in the Sweet 16, and Patrick Beverly went for 30 points, and Coach A said.
No. wasn't him. My bad.

My favorite memory was his love for water.  He must have gone through a whole case during his press conference. Intense anxiety will sure dry a fella out.  Let's raise our Aquafina bottles to Coach A.  We hardly knew yee.

My favorite memory was the way he walked into Bud Walton for his press conference.  He looked like a man being led to the gas chamber.  I think I even saw Frank walking in front of him crying, "DEAD MAN WALKING"!

The excitement that gushed from both Dana & wife the day he was introduced at Bud Walton.  Seems like only yesterday.  Made me excited to have them.  Boy, I'll never forget the feeling that it was THE day Arkansas basketball had returned to prominence.

I liked it when he told Chuck that his goal for our program was to "have the best basketball team that we can" year after year . . . . "barring injuries or illnesses."

Too bad we missed out on that kind of high level success.

I'll always remember Coach Altman for being the only undefeated basketball coach.  Too bad pressing for 40 minutes would have lasted slightly shorter than your coaching career here.

Ha Ha, It's been awhile since I heard the word Jabroni but this guy is one.  He needs to get back to omaha, before we check him into smackdown hotel, feed him the rock bottom followed by a big mouth of peoples elbow.  IFFFFFFFF  YOUUUUUUU SMELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL, what The Rock is cooking!

I liked that part where the next season started and this was all just a dream... and Bobby was still alive, or Nolan was still coach... or something like that.

Could this have been an HDN masterminded scheme to make him look like a loyal Hog soldier?
