What would you have like Tanner to have done? Have a HCIW already? Just because the media and cockytalk says the hiring process was botched doesn't mean it's true.


I bet we wouldn't have crashed to 3 wins if we had a HCIW. It wasn't a secret SOS was on the verge of retirement. It's part of the game. Tanner dropped the ball on that then had to revert to his 3rd choice at best on the hire.
I'm not as critical as some about champ but it's yet to be seen.

We were 10-21 (2-14 SEC) in Horn's last year.

Just getting to NIT level from that is drastic improvement. Granted, we all want more than that, but you can't forget just how bad we were.

All Gamecock sports are fine. Football has improved, baseball has gotten better this past season, basketball has been on the up swing and facilities are improving. Why is it some people seem to always try and point out the negatives. See "Why are we fans" thread. Now this..

Then the football program fell off the face of the earth under his watch. Unacceptable.

Awesome we won 25 games. The prize was the NIT. Meh.

Gamecock sports are in good shape and most of all improving. This thread is an insane thread.

It's fair to evaluate a coach/AD job performance. It shouldn't be done as a knee jerk reaction to one game though.

That said, Tanner's doing fine.

Maybe you should have asked a better question then. Do you need me to do it for you?

Judging by the responses, only a few people read the questions posed in my original post.

And people who are too emotional to take a 50,000 foot view are why some message boards thrive. Without conflict, there is no story.

Ya know -- no one is forced to be a Gamecock fan.

Anyone is free to find a new school to "support" at any time. And it seems we have several who need to seriously consider doing just that.

So we should find another team because we feel like the one that we pull for should be more successful?

How about this: Can you define what you would consider success within our major sports? And realistically. This 'we should win 11 games per year' stuff just isn't going to happen. It's difficult to maintain such a winning percentage for longer than a few seasons--which we did. It's also important to realize that both our football and basketball programs can literally count how many post season games they've been involved with.

Not be dominated by a program with similar resources. Don't fall off the face of the earth.

C+ at best. Tons of good but on his watch the #1 revenue $ generator went stagnant and then regressed.

That other program has been running a slush fund for years and we haven't so not every resource is similar. And no, that's not the answer. Despite what you and others on here say cheating isn't a way to run a winning program.
