So what's the top dollar we can afford for a BBall coach? Would we do a Bama except in BBall?

He just said any problems at Arkansas had nothing to do with his decision to go back. Said it was just in his heart to go back. Apparently got a call from Arkansas this morning, perhaps concerning the Wally article. Said he had made his decision Monday night.

Altman sounds convincing.  He really sounds like a stand-up guy who messed up.  He claims the decision was based on his "heart" and that me made the decision before he even went into the office.

That was a funny line about thinking he had one job change left in him, but it turning out to be two.

I wonder if this isn't a situation caused by the way coaching hires are done now. He wasn't allowed to go to Fayetteville and look around. He wasn't allowed to meet with the players or administration.

Sounds just like When Cremins left/returned to Gterch and the Winthopw coach doing the same with COC.  Altman too.  All "agreed" to move without having spent much or any time in the new place.

has to see that this guy is an emotional wreck and wanted to run home.

This has NOTHING to do with academics, drug tests, etc.


He loves Creighton, was greeted here with unhappiness with his hiring and he wanted to go home.

End of story.


As  I said earlier, when he turned on the 10pm news here on Monday night, saw interviews with fans and a internet poll showing DEFINITE unhappiness with is hiring, how would you have felt.

Source/Link?

The source was my pair of eyes ( and those of my wife as well, who used to work at 40/29 btw ), i do not know if there is a link or not.  They reported the poll during their rewport on the new coach.

It amazes me that everyone wants to tear the program down from WITHIN.  Let this go, let's hire another coach, WIN SOME GAMES NEXT YEAR, and restore some dignity to being Arkansan in the nation's eye.

Amen.

If he left 100% because he was 'homesick"  thats one thing.  If, as many here would lead you to believe, that there is more to it, grades, durgs, etc, then are you saying he should have stayed, regardless?  If so, shoudn't Gus, and MM, and DW have stayed, even though what they were told "apparently" was not what actually happened?

« Reply #71 on: April 04, 2007, 12:46:44 pm »

That's exactly right.  I watched it and thought he might break down and cry at first.  When asked if problems within the athletic dept such as player ineligibility were part of the reason for his changing his mind, he flat out denied it, stating "That is not true."  Concerning the statement about some players needing to attend classes, he said that there were Creighton players who also needed to attend class more, which brought a laugh from the audience. I don't remember his exact words here, but something along the lines that the things going on at U of A were no different than any other college.  He was much more relaxed and at home at this press conference, very different than the one at BWA.

You beat me to that last part, Scott.  Before the next hire, if the coach hasn't been to the campus before and knows some of the PTB's,  He should be required to visit before being hired.

The problem with that is that it can not be done "quietly".  Do you think Bill Slef is going to come tour the campus, knowing it will be reported in Jayhawkland 10 seconds after he gets here.

I think he saw Otis Kirk in cutoffs and a T-Shirt and thought " you my goodness, what did I get myself into" and when Otis asked him what trash can he leaves his recruiting lists in that was the final straw for DA.

You guys don't be swayed by this news conference.........Altman has been around too long to jump into something like this without weighing all the factors involved.  He held this press conference in the same manner a defeated politician would and said all the right things without speaking the truth.
If there are eligibility issues out there or other concerns with players, we will find out in time!

He'd better plan on retiring at Creighton because noone else will touch him.  there is a reason why a coach would go from a major school to a mid major and that is because he doesn't like the pressure that comes from a major university.

There's a reason so many are cynical: everyone knows that "family" is a code word.

Everybody.

Dana Don Altman will lead Creighton to the Nat'l Championship when pigs fly out of my arse.  He is a wimp that doesnt have the stomach for leading a team to the Nat'l championship.  He knew those expectations would be here at UofA and not at Creighton, so he goes back to where they have man-crushes on him and gets his little 20 win season one game exit from NCAAT and collects his check.  He will never be fired there and collects 1.4 million a year, would you leave?  You would if you seriously wanted to achieve something great(Nat'l Championship) before you became worm food and had the opportunity to do it.  He had the opportunity but doesnt have the stomach for it.  He is content with the status quo and fine for him.  He still nuked our BBall Program for years to come and is still a wuss and will be forever shunned in this state, but hey he will never get a Nat'l championship and be forever considered a mid-major college coach who did not have the guts to bring a prominent program back to National recognition in the BBall world.  Good riddance Dana!

Alright, got my flame proof underware on now.

The only way Altman would have done this is because of what he found under the covers.  Then he was denied when he asked to bring some of his non-coaching staff to help him with these non-court issues.  I hate to say it, but these things will come out.

Dana is too classy a person to ruin UA's chance at the next prospect by "outing" the program's ills.

He does love Creighton, but most of his reasons are a nice cover story.

Don't be like the A&M cancer that tried to wreck our board last week. Have some class, and I am glad you guys got your coach back. Would not have been a good fit.
