Subject: Outside Looking In

I stayed away from posting all year, but after last night and thinking about the program, we have to make a change and get rid of Reggie. Yes, we finished 2nd but in a conference where teams couldn't get out of their own way. This was wide open for us and somehow it crumbled.

This was supposed to be the year, we have the talent and it was wasted. There is no fight, no energy, no development. You look up Main St. and the opposite is going on. We've dealt with programs like Siena and Niagara in the 2000's, multiple Bona's Team get to the tournament, and again we're here just shrugging our shoulders saying "next year."

Hell even look at the student buy-in? Non-existent. We finally again have a local kid who is contributing and there's no connection. The only thing i come back to is Reggie. The coaching staff has wasted this year and next year isn't too promising, they've insulted the few fans that actually go to the games, and stopped any momentum this program had.

I hope Maher and Hurley take notice, we've fallen behind and it's a shame, and if something isnt done, we'll continue to live on the outside looking in.

Reggie and Baron were safe hires, after being burned by TP. But safe hires have turned out to be stale hires. Time for some new blood, some new fire, someone who can connect with the CC community, which has a tremendous local alumni base that just is not excited.

Why not Pat Beilein, if he'd take the job? He has succeeded at D3 and D2 and it's clear he's going to be a DI coach at some point.

He has a recognizable local name, some in-state recruiting connections, is young and enthusiastic, and certainly working knowledge of the CC situation.

Why not now, with CC?

Could not agree more. Who is going to play next year? They have not recruited anyone. We already have a short bench, and Faulkner and Sanks are gone. We do not have a pivot player who can defend,let alone score. At this time of year, the better prospects are long gone. More projects and players no one else wanted. Warm bodies to fill out a roster. It has become a theme with this staff. Shame on them. The Program is in shambles,
to be honest.

TK - agreed on all accounts.

No outreach to students, boosters, alums. Runs the administration of the team the same way he coaches - no energy, no plan, no success.

The Reggie experiment has been a complete failure. 15-17 in the 3rd worst conference in the country. An empty cupboard in front of him ... scorched earth behind. It’s time to move on.

In his three years at CC, Reggie's record is 54/45. Maher isn't going to fire a coach with a winning record who just coached his team to second place in the conference. I believe this season could have been a disaster if it wasn't for some good coaching. First off, they never were able to replace Crumpton, and secondly what ever happened to Reece. As a soph, he averaged 16 pts per game, and this season he played poorly, and got suspended for tell RW that he intended to transfer. Despite this, the team wins 15 games and ends up in second place in the conference. I totally agree that the staff has to come up with a good recruiting class for 2019-20, or the the program will be in trouble. We'll just have to wait and see. I know everybody is excited about our neighbor UB. They have a great team, but they lose five excellent players. I know they supposedly have recruited well, but realistically next year they will be struggling like the rest of us. Oates will probably bail out and land a high paying job. He knows he's in Pergulaville, and college basketball will always take a back seat behind the Bills and Sabers. The days ahead will sure be interesting . Go Griffs!!!
