    I was really hoping coach Crean would be the man to get our program turned around. I like coach, but it's time to find a young, up and coming coach. We're the University of Georgia, we SHOULD be a h3ll of a lot better in basketball than we've been. I'm tired of seeing our basketball program underachieve! It's time to turn this crap around! Let's go!

    GO DAWGS!

    UGA is less competitive in Mens BB than Vandy is in football. Let that sink in.

    That pretty much seals Tom's fate. On to the next "coach." Next coach needs optics....size. UGA is small. Cannot convert on or off the boards. UGA needs a total team update. The team has been allowed to become like a relic. Scrimmage at best for SEC foes. Very embarrassing.

    Once he gets fired, Tom Crean apologists will talk about how he was missing his two best players because of injury and how he didn't have any height and so on and so forth. All that's true, but I think the real story of this team goes back to all of those transfers after last season. I know there were record numbers of transfers throughout college basketball, but Crean lost the entire team, and the two best players stayed in the SEC. I knew then that he had problems from which he would not overcome. Even if there hadn't been injuries this year, we were still headed for yet another losing season. Time to move on. Go Dawgs!

    Been hoping they'd turn it around since the 70's. If I have to wait 50+ years more to see it change, I'll be out of luck, I'd be over 110 years old 🤣

    Jump on the chance now to hire a good coach now before other teams start firing their coaches and the pickings get slim.

    Is he fired yet? Is he fired yet? Is he fired yet?

    He will be fired, but I do not think this week or next. Unless they come to an agreement. I think it will be around April 4......the buyout drops after that day. We need to save all the $$ and find the best fitting coach.

    Once Crean is let go, I would really like to see a thorough article on the state of UGA basketball facilities, coaching salaries, and any other factors that will give us a real sense of the athletics department's commitment level toward men's basketball. The AD and others will say all the right things, but what is the real state of the program? If the athletic brass really want men's BB to be making the NCAA tourney on a regular basis, are they supporting it in the way it needs to be supported for that level of success to be a reality? Or are they just giving lip-service without providing the facilities, salaries, etc. needed? I don't know the answer to that question, and I'd really like to get it.
