  1. OK, so just a point of order. three years ago some folks said that Orlando and Oliver Antigua was a bad hire for USF hoops. this (Gregory HC with Bartow as Asst Coach) is not a bad hire at all...
  2. Brian Gregory as head coach with Murry Bartow as asst coach is lightyears ahead of having Orlando and Oliver Antigua....that is most certainly an
  3. Brian Gregory has 248 wins as a Head Coach with two NCAAs, 4 NITs (1 NIT Championship) and coached in the A10 along with the ACC. he took an 11 win GTech program to 21 wins with an NIT and they fired him for it. he also set up Pastner to win ACC COY. if Gregory and Bartow can't rebuild USF...I don't know who can. that's the best positive spin I've got.
  4. that's why keeping Bartow is important.
  5. no, you hired the guy who got Pastner ACC COY....it's really not a bad hire...esp if Bartow stays on as an Asst.
  6. I'm being serious...17 wins at USF next season would put him in serious contention for AAC COY.
  7. the Akron coach did turn you down...so maybe the job was offered around and folks simply said no. that happened to memphis after Cal...Mike Anderson and Scott Drew turned us down before we settled for Pastner.
  8. smart move.
  9. USF will certainly have low expectations like GTech...here's to 17 wins and AAC COY!
  10. This is true...
  11. ^ This. Brian Gregory took an 11 win team to 21 wins and an NIT...he also set up his successor for ACC COY. it's not a terrible hire...he's better than Antigua or Bartow.
  12. nope (I thank GTech for taking him off our hands)...we would not be pleased with 17-15...hell, our fans grumble about 19-13 with attendance over 9,500.
  13. Pastner found what he always needed.....low expectations. Congrats, Josh!
  14. it's just like Memphis...sure, he can beat a ranked UNC and ranked FSU...but he also lost to Ohio (not Ohio State), Penn State, TN by 23, Duke by over 50, and even NC State. just like at Memphis he could beat a ranked OSU and Louisville before losing to Tulane, ECU, and South Florida. the bad Ls cancel out the good Ws.
  15. going from 21-15 (8-10) to 17-15 (8-10) is a step forward? Brian Gregory is a better coach than Antigua or Bartow...that should make you guys feel a little better.
  16. That's why I said 'Homerun hire for USF' its all in the eye of the beholder. Matt McCall, Dooley, even Mark Gottfried...make them turn you down before you move on
  17. USF could never get Bobby Knight...someone like Dooley is 'as good as it gets' for USF. remember...Akron's coach just turned you down.
  18. no, his star player from Memphis (Greg Pryor) suffered a season ending injury after Chatt started the season 19-7 and lost out. that means McCall can be had for a decent price right now. 2016: 29-6 NCAA Tournament 2017: 19-12 Declined CIT bid
  19. I still say Joe Dooley or Matt McCall are worth offers before saying 'screw it' and hiring Bartow.
  20. Dooley would be a 'home run hire' for USF.
  21. copy that...I actually just ran my eyes down his wiki page looking for seasons that ended in 'champion' he also had a NIT Championship (1979) and something called a CCAT (WTF?) Championship...that's where I got 5 from.
  22. Bobby Knight won NCAA titles, graduated his players, and those kids would run through brick walls for him. is he an a$$hole? sure... but so are Marine Drill Instructors...and plenty of folks send them their kids. Bobby has 902 wins and 5 NCAA titles...he may be old and a little senile...but he sure ain't irrelevant.
  23. Gottfried would be an outstanding hire...took Bama to an Elite Eight and NC State to two Sweet 16s with over 400 career wins. let NC State and Texas pay big chunks of you basketball and football salaries the next couple years.
  24. rumor is you guys are in talks with former GTech coach Brian Gregory Season Team Overall Conference Standing Postseason Dayton Flyers (Atlantic 10 Conference) (2003–2011) 2003–04 Dayton 24–9 12–4 1st (West) NCAA First Round 2004–05 Dayton 18–11 10–6 T–2nd (West) 2005–06 Dayton 14–17 6–10 T–11th 2006–07 Dayton 19–12 8–8 T–7th 2007–08 Dayton 23–11 8–8 T–7th NIT Quarterfinals 2008–09 Dayton 27–8 11–5 T–2nd NCAA Second Round 2009–10 Dayton 25–12 8–8 7th NIT Champions 2010–11 Dayton 22–14 7–9 T–8th NIT First Round Dayton: 172–94 (.647) 70–58 (.547) Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (Atlantic Coast Conference) (2011–2016) 2011–12 Georgia Tech 11–20 4–12 11th 2012–13 Georgia Tech 16–15 6–12 9th 2013–14 Georgia Tech 16–17 6–12 11th 2014–15 Georgia Tech 12–19 3–15 14th 2015–16 Georgia Tech 21–15 8–10 T–11th NIT Quarterfinals Georgia Tech: 76–86 (.469) 27–61 (.307) Total: 248–180 (.579) I guess the idea is he took an 11 win GTech to 21 wins with an NIT and they fired him for it...Pastner then took the team Gregory rebuilt 17-15 and won ACC COY. It's better than Antigua or Masiello...but not a slam dunk hire.
  25. ugh...hire Mike Davis at Texas Southern before you hire Johnny Jones (former Memphis interim coach) 2000–01 Indiana 21–13 10–6 4th NCAA First Round 2001–02 Indiana 25–12 11–5 T–1st NCAA Runner-Up 2002–03 Indiana 21–13 8–8 6th NCAA Second Round 2003–04 Indiana 14–15 7–9 T–9th 2004–05 Indiana 15–14 10–6 T–4th NIT First Round 2005–06 Indiana 19–12 9–7 T–4th NCAA Second Round Indiana: 115–79 (.593) 55–41 (.573) UAB (Conference USA) (2006–2012) 2006–07 UAB 15–16 7–9 T–8th 2007–08 UAB 23–11 12–4 2nd NIT Second Round 2008–09 UAB 22–11 11–5 3rd NIT First Round 2009–10 UAB 25–9 11–5 T–3rd NIT Quarterfinals 2010–11 UAB 22–9 12–4 1st NCAA First Round 2011–12 UAB 15–16 9–7 T–5th UAB: 122–72 (.629) 62–34 (.646) Texas Southern (Southwestern Athletic Conference) (2012–present) 2012–13 Texas Southern 17–14 16–2 1st 2013–14 Texas Southern 19–15 12–6 T–2nd NCAA First Four 2014–15 Texas Southern 22–13 16–2 1st NCAA Second Round 2015–16 Texas Southern 18–15 16–2 1st NIT First Round 2016–17 Texas Southern 21–11 16–2 1st Texas Southern: 97–68 (.588) 76–14 (.844) at least Davis has a Final Four and has won everywhere he's been (if you can fix Texas Southern, you can fix USF)...just say no to Johnny Jones.
