Re: Coaching Carousel 2021

I have been a Patrick Sellers advocate since Howie retired. He is my first choice. The problem with Mitch Oliver (DIII) and Scott Burrell (DII) is that they do not have experience with DI recruiting. A D1 assistant or former HC would be well experienced and have many connections within the D1 market...

Re: Fans in the Stands

Maintain space and wear a mask. There should be no problem, especially for outdoor venues.

Re: The stat I wish I didn’t have to write and one you most definitely don’t want to read.

if DM really wants out I would expect that he will say something soon. Like a Twitter post stating thanks to Central but its time to move on.

Re: The stat I wish I didn’t have to write and one you most definitely don’t want to read.

Is it a reasonable expectation that they could prefer to keep Marshall until they identify a permanent Athletic Director? No, I don't think that is reasonable. If you have an acting AD then he should do the job of AD until told otherwise by his superiors, and there isn't anyway one can justify rehi...

Re: The stat I wish I didn’t have to write and one you most definitely don’t want to read.

Will Patrick Sellers even take the job? We might be in for a real 'no name' here. That will never be known until the job is up for application and an offer is made. He seemed interested last time. Central is really an opportunity for any D1 assistant coach who has confidence in his abilities. Think...

Re: 2/20 @ LIU

Jamir Reed got ejected for kicking a chair? Jamir Reed got a technical late in the 4th Q. I did not see anything bad, the announcer thought he said something to the Ref. Two shots for the foul and two more for the technical. According to the announcer he went back to the bench and kicked a chair an...

Re: The stat I wish I didn’t have to write and one you most definitely don’t want to read.

Yeah, there is no point in talking about a new coach at this time. Do we really know that DM is bailing out? or that Central will choose not to renew? Its speculation..... unless someone has an inside source. I think that at the end of this season there should be a change. If it causes a load of tra...

Re: The stat I wish I didn’t have to write and one you most definitely don’t want to read.

Times are tough. But Central's MBB (and WBB too) have been on a steep decline for most of the last decade. With no light at the end of the tunnel. Now it has been suggested that one of the problems is financing being not up to par for a D1 program. But most D1 programs are not majors. We are not tal...

Re: The stat I wish I didn’t have to write and one you most definitely don’t want to read.

On a personal level I like DM and I realize this is his first time as a head coach. He is a good guy. I have some opinions on the areas where DM is deficient as a coach, but that is neither here nor there. I think its acknowledged here that there are on this team and in the previous 4 teams - good t...

Re: 2/11 Merrimack @ CCSU

Only 4 teams make the NEC playoffs this year so rest easy they were long eliminated.
That doesn't matter. Even with the usual top eight in the tournament, Central was not going. But cheer up! We have an excellent shot at 9th place. I call that a moral victory ](*,)

Re: 2/11 Merrimack @ CCSU

That sucks.
So we can't go to the game in person, and we can't watch it for free on Front Row, but we have to pay to watch it on ESPN+.

Re: SFU 1/29 and 1/30/21

Clearly Marshall knows more about coaching than I do, and he knows his players better than I do. But you'd struggle to find other coaches who play their best players so few minutes. If they were 7-4 instead of 4-7, I'd think the staff has found something. But, that's clearly not the case, and as of...

Re: SFU 1/29 and 1/30/21

The three point shooting was outrageous! Central 48% and SFU 45%. They cannot maintain that game after game. But this Central team is going to live and die by their ability to knock down threes. They don't have much of an in the paint presence, especially with Wilson out. Although Wallace is much im...
