    Does Marvin Menzies Have What it Takes?

    It might be moot if they dont make it here, but I stand by my statements that Ethan and JPL are solid ncaa level guards. Josh's brother starts at Temple this year and they are good. Ethan is coming from Fairfax. He will be good 100%. Bellifield, Ian Baker, Ethan, all similar ranked and size from similar hs level programs. The back court will be good and deep next year if they end up at UNLV. Only Hardy and Hamilton will have played any college minutes so theres an experience issue. But it leaves a large block of minutes for Jay Green, Woodbury, JPL and Anderson to split. Soeone will be left out, but both freshmen probably play next year. Forget basketball. Just compare the size, body build, leaping ability of JPL and Ethan to Noah and Amauri. These are huge athletic upgrades. A blind person could see that.

    During the cbi, why not? Hamilton could still play a lot more, get Woodbury, Beck and Coleman out there. Im realistic. I know its not going to happen, but the rationale is obvious. The sr will not be back. The back court coming in is a high caliber ncaa tournament back court. Just maybe not year one. Marvin will be forced to play all underclassmen next season, so im not too worried about it. Only Amauri and Jay Green have tenure. The question will change next year to can MM coach up a very young team and get them playing high level bball sooner rather than later. Marv could have gotten a head start on the process this year, but he cheated the process and just talked about youth. I dont even care who plays in the backcourt next year because they will all be young guys he brought in as a result of years of recruiting. No more excuses. That is if he is not fired; which remains to be seen.

    If they do this, it means the UNLV administration buys the 11 freshmen and sophomore line and that MM will most likely be back next season. I just wonder if he will actually play the young guys during the tournament. I doubt it. I still think Marvin is back next year.
  5. Im sure that wasnt written in September, first. Second, look at all of the carnage since all of this has dropped. Zero, none, nothing. Hes gotta be looking around in disbelief that noone has even been slapped on the wrist.

    Yes. A few of those guys and two others. Some of those guys no way.

    If i was going to say, I would have already. I havent been here that long, but im noticing that random people will pop in and give the names. Then maybe I will chime in. Nobody is even close right now.

    We are essentially saying the same thing. It boils down to is what is DRF weighting, attendance right now or what she perceives as Marvin's trajectory as a coach? She was not here during Rice's tenure so it's moot. What can happen, and what has already happened with the football program, is that certain boosters and groups of boosters can get together and force her hand. The whole leaning toward keeping MM thing is the attitude coming from DRF and the ath dept. That could end up being the true. But as ive stated numerous times before, ultimately, the buck does not stop with her and the decision will basically be made for her. Things have heated up with a big name or two. The bigger the names get, and the more certain the funding and push get, the more likely a move will be made. MM certainly has not done enough to silence the talk, and from what I can see the talk has intensified to the point that a few experienced college coaches have contacted UNLV. I also mentioned before UNLV can attract NBA coaches.

    Im hearing that Menzies is a goner. It seems like he knows at this point. I still wont believe it til I see it, but the names associated with the job are getting too good to pass up. DRF has money for her picks. Not sure where its from, but her picks are starting to look very good.

    Marvin compared Clyburn to Kobe or Lebron. Wow.

    Very weird and ugly last stretch. Final 3 minutes with Marvin really shortening the bench 2nd half.
