    I was referring to the panic of Lofton (at the time) potentially leaving, so we hired the guy who recruited him to be the head coach. Seemed like a desperation move to keep him at Tech, which didn't work out at the time, and hasn't worked out since.

    Yeah he will -

    Even though it was that bad - they still had over a 36% increase in home attendance at Tulsa this year through a 5 win season - that's how bad the situation was he was walking into there...

    What did we experience in Hester's first year in home attendance - a 50% decrease?

    About an 8% decrease on paper (2,704 to 2,493). Had to be close to a 50% decrease in warm bodies in seats, especially during the conference schedule.

    Stewart was on the top of my list to be moving on. Disappeared on the bench for a long stretch, came out and had a stretch of games with significant minutes, and then didn't play much the last 4 games.

    Agreed. Let's see how the coach reacts and rebuilds the team. He should be given the chance to improve the team.

    Haven't we already seen that he can't coach or control what he has on the roster?

    But wasn't the team he had this past season a team he helped build?

    Sure but he's been the head coach less than one year. I think he should be given at least another year as the head coach for us to make a decision.

    …another year of dwindling attendance. Fans haven’t had anything to feel good about since Mike White’s last choke.

    I disagree -

    He inherited a fairly talented team with Williams and Crawford with a decent supporting cast - a lot of them that he personally recruited

    I firmly believe that if it wasn't for the players on this team voicing their support for him being named the head coach, he wouldn't of gotten the job

    I don't think we hit double digit wins in 2024

    Hope I'm wrong

    So the team wanted him as coach and now are leaving.

    Correct. Most of those leaving were players Hester recruited. Cobe Williams was a Hester recruit, now he is in Tulsa with Konkol.

    Much like last time around when we hired a Basketball coach there is a disconnect between do we hire a coach to keep the players happy or hire a coach to build a program?

    A lot of our fear on this board is that the AD hired a coach to keep players happy. That rarely works out.
