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.


The man did NOT know how to coach and showed no interest in learning!

Regardless of where his wife was living, his staff would've remained the same.

To do that , we need kids who can compete at a BE Level . Not sure if Anderson ever won the SEC title but , it’s a tough league . Like the BE . Cooley has done well , except this Year at PC , he gets the occasional 4-5 star kid but , basically finishes in the middle of the BE pack . We need to aim higher and look to overtake Xavier , Marquette, Villanova regularly . I don’t think you can win in the BE with a Roster of just 2,3 and the occasional 4 star kid . No matter if you press all game . It won’t happen .

those are fine standards. Why didnt you hold Mullin to them ?

. Yes, their are good Objectives for our Program or any Program . Lavin didn’t accomplish them either and both , he and Mullin shared the same fate . Lavin got to the NCAA twice , once with Norm’s players in 5 years He did a great job with Norm’s kids , Burrell, Kennedy , in year 1 . And , again in his last year with DLO, Greene , etc . If you accept these Goals , which are tough to achieve , you will have a good team . Next Year , without Figgy and Heron , will be tough . And , as with Mullin , Coach Anderson gets a free pass for year 1 results . Even , with them both, it will be tough to be .500 barring miraculous Late minute additions , like G’ town got last year with Akingo and McGuinn. Who will haunt us for 3 more years . I had opinions that favored Mullin for sure . You have opinions too . If you believe it’s a duty for you to criticize others opinions , on a basketball site , go ahead . As for Mullin , there were many , many posters and fans that supported Chris , in addition to those who resorted to weak personal attacks . I am not accusing you but , there were many in the Anti Mullin posse. If Anderson can achieve winning a BE Title in 5 years And the other Goals , he will be a success . If not , he will suffer the same fate . Although at age 60 , he can simply retire , if he doesn’t get those results .

.....the answer to my question ?

I am a big, big fan of how CMA is integrating himself so much with our community and culture. Even connecting with old players now, gotta love it!

If Hatten is 'old', that leaves 'some' of the rest of us, 'ancient'!
