    Apparently has a good shot.

    I wonder if there's any chance of the late reclassification (a la Kuzma)? Of course guard is still where this team will face the most questions, even if this guy were coming this year his position is where Utah seems to be the most solid with Timmy Allen.

    Who cares? He's not getting us into the tournament and his players are transferring by junior year. His bench coaching is bad to a bizarre extent, and the defense and discipline is lacking. Washington fired Romar with the no. 1 recruiting class in the country, because he couldn't get them into the tournament regardless of recruiting.

    Also, however wowed you are by his recruiting, it's still in the bottom half of the Pac 12, if that's your sine qua non.

    Why are you defending these coaches?

    That dunk was a near miss. I hope the rim is okay.

    Scratch didn't defend the coaches, he stated a fact about recruiting.

    You have such a hard-on about getting Larry gone, you are arguing against things that people aren't saying. You have Larry Derangement Syndrome (I won't even comment on the irony of that acronym).

    Just announced on twitter that its official. Huge get for the program. Huge get for the program.

    Interesting note on this kid..........his Dad played at BYU. His mom's cousin is the head coach at wasatch. Mark Pope went after this kid like crazy. He would have likely been a cougar but for Tim LaComb not coming back.

    Sorry folks, there is not a chance in hell that Larry is going anywhere anytime soon.

    Offer list:

    Baylor, Texas, KSU, BYU, TCU, Texas A&M.

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    I never said he should be fired. I have never said that. I do, however, think he's been substantially underperforming and he needs to do a lot better.

    You have come awfully close.

    If there are mass transfers, a good lawyer should be able to find termination for cause grounds somewhere in the debacle, nixing the buyout or making a negotiation of a substantial discount possible.

    Maybe fire the whole staff for cause. I'm not interested in defending this coaching staff with what abouts.

    I say keep chasing ghosts until we hit on a worthy coach.

    You have been totally predictable in your apologetics for this charlatan of a coach.

    Too bad that his second NCAA appearance was so excruciating. Mark Few made us see reality as to where Krystkowiak sits in the coaching pecking order As has Altman.

    He isn't "here now simply because of that buyout." Do you think you do him favors by saying that? See if you can wrap your intellect (such as it is) around all the implications of that. The AD could easily raise money to buy him out, and the University probably could fire him for cause and negotiate a discount or just tell him, eff off, sue us, cheater. Probably what Krystkowiak has going for him is that he and his two predecessors have over 15 years smothered a great deal of enthusiasm for the program.
    underneath it all, there's lots of hidden love and respect for this charlatan of a coach

    He told me he’ll be doing the color commentary for at least another year.
