    Tennis team is in shambles

    From all I have heard, Jay Butler is a great guy. However, he is a horrible tennis coach. I don't know how we did against Southern, but against the remaining schedule, save Grambling, we have won not one a single match. We are consistently putting up goose eggs. (LSU 0-7; Sam Houston 0-7; USL - 0-7; UAB - 0-6). We barely beat Grambling - 4-3.

    Butler has no business coaching tennis, and Oakes should absolutely be ashamed of this hire. Butler is a basketball coach. Would we hire a tennis coach to coach basketball? Of course not.

    Oakes, shame on you. You have embarassed the team and our university.

    I hope Butler can turn this around, but I don't see much hope.

    Jay, please prove me wrong. If you don't, please live up to your reputation as a great guy, and resign as soon as the year is up. Use your talents in an area you have some competence.

    We could have more than one program heading this direction if we are not very careful.

    You can't second something that has already been seconded. I seconded it, so that means you THIRD it.

    What, we can criticize football and basketball coaches on the public forum, but we cannot criticize JO? The tennis team's record is a matter of public record. The fact that we were stupid enough to hire a basketball coach to coach tennis is a matter of public record. I really don't blame the girls at all. They are playing as they are coached.

    Move it if you would like, it won't hurt my feelings. I just don't think it is necessary.

    Re: Tennis team is in shambles

    Talked to a few folks in the TAC and it's not a reflection of him as a person he is just not a Tennis coach and everyone knows it. He admits it. In that same breathe everyone will say what a great guy he is and how he does a lot with FCA I believe, but just not a tennis person, and if you want to compete you can't make these kind of hires.

    We barely won a game. It was all over the LSU newspaper.

    I do hope the team will improve. To be frank, it has to.

    Then why in heck did JO hire somebody who admits he is not a tennis coach? Why on earth did he take the job? This really bewilders me.

    Re: Tennis team is in shambles

    Does he even PLAY tennis? I hope we didn't hire a 3.5 club player that coaches basketball 'cuz he likes the sport? Perhaps I need to rethink my theory about winners being able to coach whatever sport if he really IS a decent basketball coach. So, if he fails miserably here are they just going to let him hang around until some assistant basketball coaching spot comes open? What was the point of this hire?
