Fire Dave Rice

Very few cbb programs are at an ELITE level.

 

You'd be surprised to see what a great coach could do.

 

Oh wait, why am I replying to you? I forgot you never listen.

You will never get to an elite level without elite talent.  Your approach is stupid.

You will never get to an elite level with elite recruits without good coaching.

We've seen elite talent wearing UNLV uniforms.

The sideline unfortunately hasn't produced. Nor gave us any reason to think it can produce.

No I get the point. The Lon years were great for a certain segment of the fanbase and were content with the results lon was producing. Even if he didn't put in any effort to maximize the program's potential.

So Your point is then that we got rid of Lon to hire a coach that could get us to the next level as a program. We agree.

Then you do a complete 180 and lower expectations to Fit the coach who replaced Lon. No step up has been taken whatsoever. Yet you still argue for the coach who was hired to.take that step up, but has failed to do so.

Cocognitive Dissonance 101. Pick a theory and stick With it man.

I'm actually not sure that we have seen elite talent under Rice. We have seen a number one pick and a couple of other potential first round picks, but nobody is tearing up the NBA yet.

although i appreciated what lon did in elevating the program, i was not sorry to see lon go, for the reasons you listed above. it was time.

 

i'm curious, though, as to why you think rice deserves more time? and yes he recruits, i know that. but since he will be here next year at least, i really want to see what you see, i'm just having a really hard time after watching the lack of adjustments, the late game coaching, the lack of offensive sets (although i did see a really good play drawn up during the tournament!)...these things are on a coaching staff, not the 'youthful' kids trying to execute said lack of plays/adjustments. (i'd also love to see a little more motivation. maybe that will come),..what makes you so optimistic?

 

i will ask the same question of ph90702...

 

i will say, on the plus side, the rebs were better at attacking a zone, for the most part. and on the other end of the court, rice did implement a zone or two of his own, at times the 1-3-1 with wood up top was effective. but is that enough? should that be enough?

SHUT THE FUCUK UP. WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU?????????????????????

 

 

YOU ARE SCARED TIMID AND WEK JUST LIKE RICE AND  YOU ASRE NOT WILLING TO ADMIT HE SUCKS.

 

WHAT IS WRONG WITH REPLACING RICE WITH BEN HOWLAND LIKE WE SHOULD HAVE DONE.

 

You are way way too focused on begin elite and think that with great players we are instantly elite. Our goal isn';t to be elite. That's stoo strict. Our goal is to be very good and we're not. We were under Kruger.

 

It's a shame that no one ever appreciates good basketball anymore. All everyone cares about our 5 star recruits and it's a shame.

 

Also, what makes Rice such a great coach? Do you ever watch basketball?

Not trying to offend anyone, just sick of Rice supporters.

 

I'm not sick of Rice supporters, there are some guys who recently have made some good posts and reasons why they think he will succeed. WhoDat had a good post yesterday and it wasn't some one line sentence of shit. He listed his reasons and some of them were pretty good. Maybe I'm wrong and honestly I'd love to be because it means we are winning but if you are going to defend the job or lack there of by Rice then back it up.

You forget it took Lon awhile to get going as well. He didn't have a great couple years here. There's been step up in various areas, notably recruiting and Rice is out there putting in the effort.

Second I'm not lowering my expectations, I've already stated my expectations for next season numerous times which are quite high. I've also stated my disappointment with this past season. The only difference here is that I don't have an axe to grind because Theus/Howland et al. didn't get hired by UNLV. It is quite obvious that this upcoming year is absolutely critical to Rice's job security beyond this upcoming season. Failing expectations, he will need to go.

I don't consider WhoDat a Rice supporter. But regarding that post, I don't agree have enough faith in Rice for any kind of improvement. How are we gonna build a real NCAA resume? Rice coached teams usually suck out out of the gate, so I reckon we'll get smoked in Maui. We won';t beat Arizona again. Where are the big wins gonna come from? If Rice is smart, he starts scheduling good mid-majors to make a resume like CSU does.

 

I'm talking about Rosgreen/ph90702 mainly when I talk about the Rice supporters. And 90% of Rebel Neters.
