impur Posted March 23, 2009 Share Posted March 23, 2009 My boss said he got a call today from one of his buddies. He was up in Portland attending a meeting of high level donors. The subject - Ernie Kent. Word is there were a couple people there speaking for Uncle Phil and EK will be shown the door. I'm on the fence on this. On one side, EK has been to 2 elite 8s, 5 tourney appearances, a pac10 title, a pac10 tourney title and has sent as many guys to the NBA as UCLA. He graduates over 90% of his players and his players are always model citizens. He has one of the top recruits in the country committing, Jamil Wilson, as well as a local kid in EJ Singler. On the other side no coach in their 12th year at the same school should ever have a 8-23 year, ever. Especially one who was in the tourney the year before. His players quit on him the last few games of the year and showed no marked improvement throughout the year. He is constantly in arguments with TP, and his offense is worthless without an elite PG. I don't know who they are going to go after, probably Mark Few and/or Tubby Smith. We can kiss Jamil Wilson goodbye, and probably EJ Singler as well plus whoever decides to transfer. But hey, you gotta fill the new stadium and Ernie can't even sell out Mac Court this year. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
