Nothing I've read has violated civility or 'balance', on either side of the 'hire'.
Opinions differ.
That's fine.
Let's communicate, avoid accusations. and chill...


You strike me as someone who enjoyed the late 60's and early 70's. True or false?

I wonder if we have had prior walk-ons who actually contributed in games not just in practice?

Well Moose, truth be told, I guess my 'sweet & sour' spot--some good/some bad--were those decades, yes. Lol.

There are a lot of us that did that Moose. We just can't remember everything about it.

No one dislikes Mullin. Like someone else said, the reason we were all so frustrated is because we love him and he's a legend from our program...but somehow he did not put anywhere near the effort needed into the gig. I remember someone hearing a rumor that he felt he was "doing us a favor" rather than being totally into it. Whether true or not, that certainly showed with the lack of effort and incompetent staff construction.

Totally correct. Everybody loves Mullin. He’s just not a college coach and wasn’t willing nor able to build the staff nor put in the recruiting it takes for sustained success. I’m glad he went out with an ncaa tourney appearance and a decent season and cut bait there.

Mullin just wasn't suited to be a HC at the college level
But his image remains intact - he will always be loved and revered by the SJU faithful

100 percent agree with this.

Chris's tenure didn't follow the path anybody wanted. It takes a special kind of drive to be successful as a college basketball coach. Chris had that as a player, but it's a different game running the program.

Still, I"m grateful that he put his name and reputation on the line for St. John's. That's a true Johnny, right to the core...

I still believe that if his wife didn’t head back to the west coast after a year, things may have gone differently.
