  • See Ya, Quin!

    So glad to hear yesterday that Quin Snyder is finally out at Mizzou.

    I've read how some Mizzou supporters actually liked this hire when it happened, but that it's gone downhill since the first few seasons.

    I never liked the decision. Quin Snyder is a Dukie, and a Dukie with no previous head coaching experience. So, what basis was he hired under? And why was his first job in a superconference like the Big 12?  Let's look at three of Mizzou's major rivals, Arkansas, Kansas, and Illinois. How many of those teams, all of whom have endured coaching changes in the last few years, hired a coach with no head coaching experience? That's right --- None.

     Snyder needs to get a job at a mid-major school or lower to learn how to coach before he tries to return to the major college coaching circles, but I'd be wary of hiring him since he also carries NCAA scandals in his wake....

  • Laughing at the Cards (Or, an uglier train wreck than the Cats)

    Gotta hand it to Louisville, who has made a huge splash in the Big East with Rick Pitino at the helm. I wonder how often the Cards started Conference USA play 1-4.

    What's scarier is that they've played like crap since getting their butts kicked by Kentucky, who's also having a nasty time of it in the SEC, pulling out a last-second win to avoid an 0-3 home conference record for the first time in history...

     I wonder what it will take before Cardinal fans start grumbling about Pitino....

  • Fire Quin Snyder!

    I'm not a fan of Dookies anyway, but this one has done nothing but drive nails in the coffin since he got to Mizzou...
