Rick Ray fired.

80 posts in this topic

He didn't get the wins, but I am shocked and disappointed with his firing. He only had a healthy roster one year and we showed improvement. We also were recruiting well. He is a great basketball mind and I am sure he will find success in his next venture.

As for replacements, I think the obvious choice is to bring Stansbury back. He has proven he can win here. Would love to return here. He can recruit on a high level. And it takes away a top assistant from an SEC rival. Thoughs?

Kudos to State for not dragging this out a few more years. Said from the get go he wasn't going to get it done.

I would actually like to see State hire Slick Rick again just to reignite the rivalry we had before.

The landscape of college basketball has changed from the end of The Stansbury era. He would be a great fit now

kinda surprised at the firing, but elated in the decision. this was bound to fail. maybe we can keep him as some sort of basketball defensive coordinator.

the beautiful mind's bags are packed, removed, and being loaded on the gtfo train as we speak.

Stansbury might go Bama if offered. Cold day in hell before he goes back to State.

He didn't want to leave in the first place. The landscape of college basketball has shifted to where he would make us one of the top 2 or 3 teams in the SEC within 2 years. He is the best fit

We all know you want nothing to do with Stans because he had us competing against you guys and made our program better than yours for a few years.

You are scared that having Donovan, Pearl and Stans all in the conference spells trouble for the Squid

Absolutely. Kentucky has obviously struggled against them all. Only managed to win by 15ppg instead of 25+. It's mildly disconcerting.

Stans won't come back to work in MS. Long as he works out of state he can draw his paycheck and his retirement he got from msu. Work in ms and the retirement goes away.

His retirement wouldn't pay him $1 million/yr and Strickland would. That being said, I'd bet on you hiring Andy Kennedy before I'd bet on Stans coming back...

This was very surprising. Had to be done however. Bet Stricklin was feeling his own seat get hot.

Not no but hell no to stansbury.

Out of curiosity, do you have any reasons as to why not other than your own personal hatred of the man? He is the obvious choice. He wants to come back. He has recruited elite talent and won at MSU and the landscape of college basketball has shifted to where he is a great fit for us seeing the state of the SEC.

I understand this is like arguing with a tree stump because you all hate him so much you can't see what would be best for MSU if it means Stansbury has any more success.

His retirement package was pretty fat from what I understand. Combined he's probably making a mil plus now without the head coach headaches not to mention what he stashed outside retirement in the years he was hc.

I can't speak for j but personally I just don't like retreading. Move forward not back. It's the same reason the Diaz hire for DC was a meh hire to me...

On the contrary, I actually like Stansbury the person and thought he was a great representative of our university.

I just don't think we need to rehash something that we've already buried. Why do the same thing again but expect different results?

That is literally all the information I need to say I don't want him back, and it's absolutely nothing personal to him as a person.

      I think the simplest indicator is the popular vote, which you lost by 3 million  how come Hillary actually paid a price for calling people deplorables, but nothing happens to Trump for anything he says? because conservatives are phony amoral hypocrites
