Re: Is It Time/Fire Wardle?

Correct. Good caveat. Maybe, but even then there have been more unmitigated disasters than not. Hoiberg was a definite outlier. And it still gets unnecessarily messy if/when you have to make a change. Exhibit A: Kim Anderson at Mizzou. He had won a D2 national championship and was well respected in...

And schools still hire those big name alums. Stop doing that. ... without any coaching background and proven coaching results. Alumni are fine IF they have already proven they can coach at a college level. Without that it is like taking a janitor and making them the CEO. It might work, but probably...

They haven't talked in almost 2 months and aren't meeting until next week. I don't see a full season or likely a season at all. Yes, I think they will be that dumb.

Re: Is It Time/Fire Wardle?

Sorry to all for the back to back posts, getting caught up. I want a solution that’s all. Maybe that’s firing Wardle, maybe not. This comparison is not valid because: A) Do you see P5 schools (OU) looking to hire Wardle away from us? B) Have we been ranked in the AP Top 25 at any point during our t...

Likely moot as he is likely on course to graduate spring/summer.

Re: Is It Time/Fire Wardle?

So let's look at Loyola. Spent money to upgrade facilities in 2011 (which were already newer than Civic Center). Joined MVC in 2013. Didn't make NCAA until 2018 then again 2021. They have exactly as many NCAA tournament berths as Bradley since the mid-80's. They had a great run in 2018 similar to B...

With all due respect, what leads you to believe this? He's missed the tournament 9 out of 11 times. Apart from two weekends, he's never won more than 1 game in Arch Madness. Bounced Thursday (2017, 2021) Won 1 game (2016, 2018) I think your assessment of Wardle is based on recency bias Last season'...

And, then, what to make of it if truly all eggs are put in the 3 games in 3 days basket (or 4 in 4), and that doesn’t work? We are getting to the part of the season where they should play...

So it sounds like you guys would have rather Bradley finished top 2/3 in the regular season, and not won the championship and made the NCAA. And before you say "both", that clearly isn't Wardle's model. He is willing to juggle lineups, rotations, etc to prepare for the important part of t...

The Valley is not a 2 team tournament league for the most part. Regular season titles are nice, but winning the conference tournament to make the NCAA tournament is the goal. In the last 30+ years (since 1988), Bradley has qualified for exactly 4 NCAA tournaments. People here are openly talking abou...

Sure fire him. Then what? You don't have the $$$ to pay Wardle and find a quality replacement. You still play in a bad facility with an aging and rapidly dwindling fan base with a student population that doesn't show much engagement. Bradley is what its record says it is / has been for the last 20+ ...
