Stallings does he stay or go ?

Postby billy guns on Sat Feb 03, 2018 11:27 pm

I’m all about giving a new coach a chance. Jaime left the cupboard absofuckinglutely empty
But is tne guy to lead the comeback? Carr seems to be the only stud going forward. Julious page I think alluded to fact that stallings was more interested in bringing university ‘corporate’
Players Than a few street smart more talented players.
This team is now not relevant. Heather AD attends all tne away Games and she wanted to win I think she shoots him early. I mean after this season who the fuck does he attract ??

From what I have heard recently, his attitude is what is not helping him. He looks and sounds defeated. So even if they manage to win the rest of their games this season, who is going to want to play for a coach, or keep one on payroll, who cannot keep a positive attitude going when things get tough?

The only problem I see with getting rid of him after this season is the buyout of his contract. I have not heard what the amount would be, though.

He was a bad hire and one of the worst coaches in basketball they suck every season he's been here, now the Pete is empty no one goes to the games not even the students. Maybe Pitt just needs to end all their team sports because its almost an embarrassment to the City and school.

... Objective view?

... You've surely came to the proper place, mate.
... Step into me office --

... The football programme ... er, "american football"
is in a decent position in the ACC - at least
if they can WIN - they then have a long,
but outside chance at the BCS finals.

... The basketballers have the same chance,
but they surely need to attract BETTER PLAYERS.
No offence meant, but WHO in their right state o'
mind wants to come to Pittsburgh University??

Unless you wanna be a doctor or lawyer?

... Penn State and some o' the other "Big" schools
grab whatever really good football talent is out there,
and WHO is coming HERE for basketball in the
winter monthes when they can play at Carolina
or Georgia where it's warm.

... You can blame Narduzzi and Stallings
if you wish - but WHO do you replace
them with??

... Pittsburgh aint the greatest college
football job out there, just sayin' ...

Football is doing OK :lol: That should be their new Slogan sure that would make kids want to come play their. :lol: Come here and do OK and finish around 6-6 if we play Ok :lol:

As for the Steelers they make the playoffs almost every year and if not for New England they would have won a few more SB

Well I thought I gave a great idea for the whole program and not just basketball but since you don't like that one then maybe drop down from Div 1 and maybe go to Div 2 or 3 and maybe then they could do better and be respectable once again :lol:

But I still like my 1st view just imagen how much money the school could save each year

Stallings was a terrible hire!! His reputation for fighting with his players and the fact that he NEVER had a winning conference record at Vanderbilt is all they should have needed to know to stay away from him. Should have found a young guy with ACC roots and a known recruiter.

Who would be a good replacement? Who would want to coach Pitt and have to rebuild a program that is already in the process of rebuilding? Do you get someone who is going to pick up where Stallings leaves off? Or do you scrap everything and start over again?

Stallings was a huge mistake I want to see what next year's recruiting class will be like but I look at it this way we're at rock bottom right now the only team in the top 6 conferences without a conference win it can't get any worse than this. Firing him and starting over won't be a set back it would be a start back. Get some young thirty something who can reinvigorate the program.

Ok let me address a few items.

1) Billy the true test of a Pgh sports fan and their level of fanhood is measured in the amount of bitching. Its just who we are. With that being said, based on Steeler69's level I would assume he is a huge fan. We are negative nellies because we expect wins all the time. Just the way it is.

2) Steeler I will tell you Pitt football can be a 8-4 or 9-3 program. They can beat number 2's and I think they found their QB.

3) Stallings SUCKS!!! I agree the man sounds like life has kicked his ass everyday. I think he survives this year. Next year if there isnt a huge improvement, he's gone.

He was a terrible hire and Pitt is in quite a quandary at this point.
Maybe worth taking another step back to maybe make a possible step forward.

It is never going to be better than the Howland Dixon era.

They are now totally irrelevant.

It's the end of the season Pitt has not won a game in 2018 and won't win their remaining 2 games with number 1 in the nation Virginia and Notre Dame. The day after Pitt loses in the first round of the ACC tournament Stallings must be fired. He brings nothing to the program replace him with some young hungry assistant coach you know like Jamie Dixon was when he first took over the program.

Even if they miraculously win the last two games, it doesn't prove that he has the stuff to coach at Pitt. It's not like the football team being good and managing to pull it together even better to beat some much better teams. For the basketball team, it would just be luck right now, or the other teams taking them way too lightly. So I think it is time to find a new coach. Someone younger, with a lot more energy, and who can light a fire under the program.

Felix, the problem is it was easy to get a Dixon because he was following a fairly successful Ben Howland. Today this is a whole different bag of shit. The good news is, whoever does follow Stallings won't have to worry about following success.

You're right Bam, Dixon was also howland's protege. I don't want to see a tired old man who looks like Otis the drunk on the Andy Griffith show, give me a young vigorous guy with fire in his eyes who will be an inspiration to the squad. But when you get down to it, it all depends on recruiting. We'll see what happens but it can't get any worse than it is now. He might be a nice guy but Stallings must go.

There is no way Sean Miller or any coach with a winning pedigree, is going to come to Pitt. There's no incentive! I think the only way you get a winning coach here is to pull him from lower divisions. That actually is a good idea.

Was there ever any doubt 8-23, 0 for the ACC. Rematch with Notre Dame on Tuesday in the ACC tournament. Before the echoes of the last ball clunking off the rim fade Stallings should be gone. Some "experts " say firing him will set the program back even further I say bullshit. We're at rock bottom you can't get any worse than this, there's nothing to tear down. There is no way you can justify giving him another season.

Pretty sure he was joking.

Worst hire that I can remember. Not the current ADs fault. She didn’t hire him! I’d like to know what recruits Stallings has coming in for next year. If his recruiting class isn’t looking good I’d let him go BUT I’d already have some feelers out to see what young up and coming guys are available.
I’d also look hard at African American candidates. Pitts a city school...most of our recruits will be city kids. We would be Sort of the non-prissy option vs the snobby Duke, NC, etc of the conference. We can’t match them in any other way. Promote our city grittiness vs these other schools as a positive.
I disagree that the Pitt job isn’t a good job. Unlike the football team, when Pitt plays well, the place is packed. The Pete is first class, on campus and the program has some good history.

Close but no cigar. Pitt loses in the first round of the ACC tournament 67-64 to Notre Dame. So that's it. Pitt goes 8-24, 0 for 2018, and 0-19 in the ACC. Unless Stallings has some 4 star recruits who will decommit if Stallings is out Pitt should eat the last two years of the contract and let him go. There's nothing to lose here except another wasted season if they keep Stallings. Start fresh in the fall it can't get any worse than this.
