In hindsight, it is obvious that Skip's leaving set this program back 10 years. Skip came in and in one year cleaned up the Schnieder mess and took this school farther than it had ever gone before. Now we're as bad as before Skip, if not worse.

In March 1994, this program was clearly at the crossroads. LC didn't have to match Skip's offer from XU dollar for dollar, but they needed to do something to capitalize on the goodwill toward the hoops program that was present that Spring. Something that reflected a committment to basketball.

Ellerbe may have been a good pick on paper, but his well-documented flaws played a big role in setting this fiasco in motion. Clearly, he was the wrong fit for the job.

Who knows, maybe 1994 was a big fluke?
