I was talking to someone at the football game on Saturday and it got me thinking. This will be Year 2 of the Hurley regime. If we are not a tourney team by next year does he get another? The guy was saying Edsall is in year 3 and hasn’t turned the program around yet. My view was given the mess he needs at least until 2020. But football was A. a total disaster and B. Harder to turn around. Basketball programs can go from eh to wow in one year. By next year Hurley will have had 3. Does he need to deliver something serious by then? Does he need to do it this year?
You were at the football game - hard stop - think about that for a second.

No, no, I kid, i kid, well kind of.

The OP is asking what about not making the tourney by the end of year 3, which is the year after this upcoming year? Legitimate question. My guess would be that the honeymoon would be getting stale but if we have big recruits coming in it would mitigate that. It’s always about performance but also the future promise of what is coming.

If we’re a bubble team and we have recruiting traction I think he’s fine. He just has to show progress.

20 minutes?
After the appropriate instant shutdown, I scrolled down to see how long before this one came up.
And then I scroll up with last second curiosity to see the final post on page 1, and it's OP back for another whack at his own piñata.

Over 49 years of watching college hoops I’ve seen lots of “can’t miss” guys flame out st the next level. Lots of people including me were happy to get him but I think we need to be a tournament team by 2021 or seriously question if he is one of those guys. We need to finish above .500 and be at worst an NIT team this year or I think there will be some questions. We can’t make the mistake of waiting too long
Seriously? You thought it was appropriate to double down on the original post? Attention whore.

were you and your buddy drinking when the conversation made this interesting turn. I can’t imagine what thoughtful debates followed.

It’s may be legitimate question next off season, not after year one.

Besides, there are many more legitimate questions to ask/answer like how to tip at restaurants or what grinds your gears at sporting events.

5-6 years. Stop firing coaches in all sports
Uh which coach that was fired do you believe that we should have kept? Just wondering.

Ugh. We can’t make the mistake of giving this any more replies.
