    Tulsa Looks Like Konkol Will Be The Next Head Coach at Tulsa…

    Interesting if it comes to fruition-

    Should know more tomorrow

    Big question is if he does jump to the Golden Hurricane - what effect will it have on our roster

    Nationally he has a great rep on what he has accomplished here given the resources (worked with less than Mike White had) -

    It doesn’t surprise me that he has a chance to move on, but honestly I think “ doing more with less” should be on all of our coaches business cards.

    Holtz’s card would have read “doing less with less”.

    What style do we want to see in Ruston? Fast pace with lots of pressing and good defense and buckets in transition like Mike White’s teams? Whatever that was with Konkol? Other past coaches have a style we should try to find again?

    If you watched Miami in the tourney you saw exactly what Konkol was trying to do here and did do here…

    In basketball circles Konkol is very well respected and has had opportunities to leave before

    Biggest question is - if he is hired away how drastic to our roster will the changes be?

    I don’t know what to think about that. Will Jr and others follow him to TULSA? Really? Will they try to find a bigger program to move up? Will the incoming coach be so liked by his players that some follow him here? With the new transfer portal option, our roster could have 10 new faces next season.

    That’s the era we are now in -

    Or does he have a hard number and conditions he won’t waiver from and only leave if they meet it knowing what he has coming back in Ruston?

    Many of our fans would think of this as a semi-lateral move when in essence it’s not

    We are probably much closer to McNeese than we are to Tulsa…

    Agreed about Konkol-- class act and great coach. It's not easy to get good players who are also good kids to come play basketball in Ruston. But Konkol has been able to do that and he has also shown an ability to adjust his coaching strategy according to his personnel (same thing Larranaga is doing at Miami). That's something he does better than Mike White imo.

    Here's who I'd love to see us go after if we lose Konkol. Might not be able to land him but it would be nice to take a swing. I love the way Houston plays.
    Have you considered those Dogs?

    Re: Looks Like Konkol Will Be The Next Head Coach at Tulsa…

    Those who know more than me, would Konkol’s style of play won the conference a couple of times with 3-5% better FT and 3 point shooting? Was that the missing ingredient?

    Main two -

    Covid not shutting down the 2020 tourney

    Not scheduling that stupid game the last week of last season where Cobe broke his finger

    Otherwise it's a FT here or there - a made three or an opponents missed three

    He won 22 or more games in 5 of his 7 years

    He had double digit conference wins 5 of 7 years (finished 3rd or higher 5 of the 7 years)

    His worst year was 2017-18 when he went 17-16 and 9-11 in conference

    This year - we three games basically on the last possession - either a made 3, missed 3, inability to secure a rebound or inability to make FTs when it mattered

    I think some of our people are shocked that Konkol is garnering serious interest from what they perceive as a per school - but if you look at his track record as a first time D1 coach, it's pretty damn solid

    To answer you question -

    All a coach can do is put the player in position to make the plays

    That mean's grabbing the rebound when it matters

    Not having your supposed superstar go 1 of 6 from the FT line with the game in balance

    Knocking down the wind open 3 or putting the bunny in off the glass in the last 15 seconds with the game on the line

    Or having a senior guard mishandle the ball and dribble it off his knee

    That's the difference between a good player and a true STAR - one can do it night in and night out, the other one can't

    Seems like last year there was fortunate breaks for Western Kentucky in terms of forfeitures so they were able to avoid playing North Texas and UAB (or something like that). We won the west but not overall. This year, the loss of Crawford really hurt us (at the 4).
    Have you considered those Dogs?

    Let's go after the Saint Peters coach, if Konkol goes to Tulsa...

    I wonder how much he gets paid and I wonder how many big schools will be going after him...
