    It also could change nothing at all.  If we stumble into a few wins i'd chalk that up to Trey coming back and slightly lesser opponents more than I would reaction to a radio interview.

    Might be everything.  It reinforces how bad the defense is and how inconsistent the offense is.

    The lift every voice song is great and I see no issue with it.
     
    The drum however borders on cringe. I have been to 90% of games this year and they threw it in like the second or third game and I hated it from the jump. Props to the hype guy to trying something new, but it isn't working. I hope this is the last year we see that godforsaken drum lol

    And the thing is no one wants to fire him now or then; he still the almost universally liked person who happens to be running a basketball program that is markedly worse than Minnesota in year one of the Ben Johnson era.

    Firing Fred is a $$ issues.  If his buyout was less than $5mil we'd already have a replacement coach thread up.

    Sort of amazing to read these type of hard yet amorphous takes where a large portion is scoreboard keeping of disagreements with previous kitchen wall takes from specific months and years.  I don't know what I had for lunch yesterday.

    Exactly this.
     
    And for that, I'm going to have to live with this for a few years, regardless of the performance on the court. I might as well try to find meaning in the team and staff we have rather than dwell on decisions that aren't likely for 2+ years.

    He'll still be with us during this time whether or not he gets it done. He clearly had a good lawyer.

    Very eye opening interview. I'm sure this was discussed in house after the fact and it opened up a lot of conversations that probably should've happened before. I have an idea of the guys he's referring to about receiving criticism and who he's telling the coach to hold accountable as I'm sure everyone else does.

    Can you imagine if we go 0-20. Trev will either have to bring back the coach with the worst P6 conf season of all time. Or pay out the largest buyout in CBB history. Historically bad in either way. That's like having to drop a 20lb weight on one of your feet OR having to drop a 20lb weight on the other foot. Good luck Trev.

    The last possession of the first half where TJD scored on all 5 of our defenders with less than 5 seconds left stood out to me.

    @aphilso1, actually, I think Frost saved his job this off-season. I think the changes he made were not just window-dressing or rearranging the Titanic's deck chairs, but actual, structural improvements that will lead to success. And we have a bit easier of a path next season, in terms of schedule, to get to a bowl game.
     
    We still have a few needs, but we've checked some boxes. And if Frost wins 8 or 9 games and takes us to a bowl, it'll be impossible to fire him after NOT firing him this season and giving him another chance to fix things. If you give him a chance to fix stuff and it gets fixed ...
     
    So, I expect the O-line is going to look a bit saltier. We have a pretty solid receivers room. We just added a the best juco player in the country to our running backs room. And we replaced the turnover machine with the Big 12 leader in TDs, so the QB room should look better. The offensive coordinating will probably be just a bit better. And special teams could be night and day. I mean, it would be hard for our special teams to NOT be a lot better than they were a year ago.
     
    So, yeah. Anyway, Fred, not so much.

    Not yet. Ask me after. I fully expect to be wrong. I probably just ate some meat that was past It's date or something. 😆

    Tried zone on a few occasions this season, and it has made our regular defense look stout.

    Eh, not really. They've started settling in. Wilcher, Webster, Tominaga and B McGowens are shooting .422 as a group from 3 since the Kansas St. game. Wilcher and Tominaga are both shooting north of .450.
     
    Lat has had a nice stretch shooting the last three games, too, miraculously.

    If we fired Hoiberg after this year it would be the highest buyout ever for a CBB coach. If fired after next year, it would be tied for the largest buyout ever with Wake/Danny Manning - and significantly larger than next highest buyout. The contract is awful...

    Maybe next year will be the year that replacing the guys who weren't winning with guys who never have will work out.

    Sip this morning said its hard to brimg a coach back that goes 0-20 or 2-18.  He said is buyout only goes down about $3M a year so at that point if things stay bad, are you really losing much?  Also said Andre was very close to leaving last year which is interesting.

    I'm just a basketball fan, so I'm just going to enjoy watching it in person since I wasn't afforded that opportunity last year. I'm rooting for for the young men to continue to get better at the game they have an opportunity to play. Nothing's good right now, and I hate losing as much as anyone. Is what it is right now, all you can do is find a silver lining and stay positive
     
    As far as who's around next year, we (or @Norm Petersonsince you did it last offseason) can start a thread on the potential lineup going into next year. One thing to remember, Wilcher and Keon have both already used their "free transfer" so they'd have to get a waiver or sit a year.
