    His team is what I hope Tech will be some day. Bad start, but nice finish to the first half.
    Tigtoo30, did you realize your post would revel so much butthurt when you posted it?

He thought enough of them to recruit them, but he's suddenly not suppose to think they can perform at a DI program like UF? Really? Or, would you prefer him to say, those guys are good enough for Louisiana Tech, but not good enough for Florida.

    With some exceptions, recruits go where they feel a connection to the coach(es). Yeah, there are kids who want to play at a certain school, and will try to go there regardless who the coach is. Is Louisiana Tech such a program in MBB?

    How can Mike White "steal" a recruit, when the kid was White's recruit? Seems to me Tech stole that recruit, if the school refused to give him a release.

    You people need to grow up.
    This week the University of Washington released the number one basketball recruit from his scholarship after they fired their coaching staff so he could follow an assistant coach (his father). Our AD refuses to allow a bench player to follow the coach who recruited him. The Washington AD has confidencein his coaching staff's ability to recover from losing the number one recruit in the country. Our AD wonders if we can recover from losing a sixth man. Tommy is only in his 30's, we could have to deal with the lack of confidence for another 30 years or so. We do not have to worry about some P5 school stealing him away anytime soon.

    His ambition alone will move him along. He's crawling out of his skin. He'll take an AD spot at a CUSA or AAC school, or a Asst AD position at a P5, or a conference asst commish. And his pitch will be that he accomplished stuff in spite of lil' ol' Tech and lil' ol' Ruston. I give it 1-2 more years.

    As for Mike White ... I'll follow with casual interest. If he succeeds, great. If he doesn't, no sweat off my back.

    Ironically, Florida is the thing that confirms my suspicions that it is next to impossible to succeed in basketball at a school like Louisiana Tech.

    They lost in the quarterfinals of the SEC tournament. Yet still they get a great seed in good division of the NCAA tournament.

    The deck is just too stacked for those who have money to spend or live in power basketball conferences.

    Mike White left because he realized the truth about Men's Basketball. Small teams don't stand a chance anymore.

    Right. I'm sure the $ 2MM a year in salary (probably going up after this season??) wasn't a factor in MW's leaving......................

    What do you mean, "small teams" ?? Ever taken a look at the enrollment at schools like Villanova, Gonzaga, Butler, St. Mary's (CA), etc. etc. etc. ??

    Butler's basketball budget is 4.85 million. Not exactly Louisiana Tech's. I would wager the same or higher with most of those you mentioned.

    Sounds to me like we are not properly allocating our resources.

    Mike White's Achilles' Heel....no half-court offense. Stand around and hope the guy with the ball can create something. He needs a good Xs and Os assistant.

    Because NCAA rules were broken. McClelland blocked Stapleton's transfer to UF because there was tampering involved and he and his family lied to Tech. He fully released the others who cooperated in compliance. You are comparing apples to oranges.

    And apparently Mike White is allergic to the Final Four. This makes 4 straight years he's lost the game that would send him to the NCAA or NIT Final Four.

    I didn't say that at all. He's obviously proven to be a great coach, but he's simply 0-for a lot of big games.

    0 for 4 playing for Final Fours
    0 for 6 conference tourneys

    He's 0 for 10 when it counts the most. It always ends in heartbreak for Mike White's teams.

    Yeah, why waste so much on MBB when we could put more into WBB where we have a real chance of winning!
