Jirsa gone

The HD reports that Marshall University has shit-canned the Ron Jirsa era.

No word yet on whether or not people will start dragging out the (highly unhelpful) ol' "They shoulda hired D'Antoni."

Oh, wait, I guess someone just did. :)

Seriously, though, this is a good time for the university to re-examine sports priorities. We can work toward having a great basketball program in a solid basketball conference, or we can gripe about how C-USA never gets noticed in football.

It was the right time. Glad they made the move.

I hear that Marshall folk've been poking around the Southern Conference and other lower mid majors to uncover the next hidden coaching gem.

Well, as much as that rumor disturbs me, it doesn't surprise me. It's nearly impossible to get a top tier coach--even a young assistant from another program--to come for the base salary, the problems getting in and out of town via air travel and the difficulty recruiting blue chip talent for a losing mid-major.

That said, there was one Rick Huckaby. There could be another.

I was hoping for Donnie Jones, considering his ties to the area and the university.

I will hate Marcum and the rest forever and ever if they screw this up.
