Would burn some UNCC minds if he was hired and actually took our program anywhere, since the UNCC program is in the dumps after they ran him outta town down there.

Lutz presided over an awful UNCC program. I'd be real careful about taking him. UNCC went from NCAA at large bids to not even making the A-10 tournament several times under Lutz.

UNCC's fans are something else. I've never seen so much smack thrown by teams with losing records.

Lutz wasn't exactly a world beater. Think some App fans just want to annoy UNCC fans. Correction, Charlotte fans. Doubt Lutz is anything but talk.

You could certainly do worse than Lutz, but you could also do better.

I don't really think it would annoy many Charlotte fans because I don't know many that wanted to keep him. After he didn't get the Tennessee job and Michael Beasley decommited (and the rest of that class afterwards), he pretty much just mailed it in.

Recruiting became ****. Discipline on the court was awful. He deserved to be fired. What he didn't deserve was the contract extension we gave him the year before we fired him.

We only missed the A10 tournament 1 time and that was Alan Major's first year.

Lutz finished 12th once, but we finished between 2nd (2005-2006) and 9th every other year.

RE: App State Fires Basketball Coach
Cobb said during the press conference he would be "Pursuing a coach with head coaching experience, regardless of the level." He then backed off that a bit saying although he "didn't want to pigeonhole themselves" into that criteria. So we go from a guy with zero experience to wanting someone with HC experience.

Sure sounds like a Bobby Lutz type of statement. Others being mentioned are Southern Florida's Linc Darner who is the brother of former ASU player and ASN color commentator Tige Darner and Lincoln Memorial's Josh Schertz. Some of our more intellectually challenged fans are lobbying for Seth Greenburg and Bruce Pearl. I have no inside info, but have to think Mike Young of Wofford will be in the mix.

I've heard ULM fans are particularly "fond" of Orlando Early.

So everyone that doesn't like or want their head coach is volunteering to lose them?

Pretty much sums it up. I am not sold on Bobby "Big Fish" Marlin down here. He is a solid coach, like the style of play but man has he had problems. Starting with the inability to recruit.

We went from Jessie Evans who had flat out studs, to having just 2 guys who can really play. It has been the worst decade of basketball is the history of Cajuns basketball. I include the time we had the death penalty.
