Until then, we’re a solid notch below those who have a room full of “non-conference championship” trophies.

Bingo!  If the Pac12 is the Conference of Champions, you need more than the Conference Trophies to show for it.

Linear thinking--I'm a fan.

What we need now is a coach who can go toe to toe with those programs and elevate Arizona....Miller aint it. 8th pace in the PAC12. Missed 30% of the NCAA tournaments since he's been here. Lost to Bucknell (RPI 5,891) at home in the NIT...any one of those things should get ANY Arizona coach fired, but we have no standards anymore.

We missed the tourney in two of Miller's first three years with an Elite 8 appearance sandwiched in between. No one expected Miller to get us back on track so quickly after the messy way Lute went out, not to mention the recruiting limits we were under because of the violations that occurred. Last season we missed out because of the ESPN report. And no one in Tucson gave a shit about the NIT and the only reason we played in that tourney was for Fogg but the players didn't come to Arizona to win an NIT championship. Josiah Turner and Sidiki Johnson being total busts also didn't help that season.

its all a matter of perspective, some folks want to validate their anger by focusing on the outliers that lend support to their worldview

its the difference between lawyers and doctors.  A lawyer will find every bit of information that supports his case and vigorously deny anything that disagrees, while the doctor reviews the entire body of evidence and lets the facts dictate the conclusion.

we're fine, we'll be even finer

we finished 8th the year after we sent our starters to the pros and the contrived scandal hurt our recruiting, we've finished first and second (tied for first but lost tiebreaker) and we will not finish 8th again

some see the glass as almost full, others see a swirling cauldron of corruption and failure, I see a program weathering tremendous adversity with a bit of style, makes me proud

some people see ostriches with their head under sand, others see a bunch of fans supporting their team and their coach

so Bear Down my peoples, and pray for threads that aren't hijacked by the FUD campaign, maybe we can have some good discussions over the summer without the constantly repeated negativity

Facts clearly do not matter to any of the doctors here. They have a patient presenting with stage 4 cancer throughout its body and are giving him a clean bill of health.

I have always said that Miller handled the transition brilliantly and following legend is not easy.

What we need now is a coach who can go toe to toe with those programs and elevate Arizona....Miller aint it. 8th pace in the PAC12. Missed 30% of the NCAA tournaments since he's been here. Lost to Bucknell (RPI 5,891) at home in the NIT...any one of those things should get ANY Arizona coach fired, but we have no standards anymore.

So did Miller handle the transition brilliantly or should he have been fired for missing the tourney in two of his first three years and losing to Bucknell? You seem to be contradicting yourself with these quotes.

he's irrelevant mate, he's got nothing but to overexaggerate

I've seen stage 4 cancer, in my dad, anyone who would compare the men's basketball program or CSM to cancer is clearly on a mission of hate

its a shame because if no one replies then his bullshit goes uncontested, but if anyone replies then he has an audience and an opportunity to double down, just gives him a platform to spew

cancer

Damn sorry to hear that ichi. In the end basketball is just a game - hope you're doing alright.

Liquidated Is a really angry person and puts way to much effort and energy into spewing hateful comments. Fans like him have a singular mission to spread hate and discontent. Don’t feed the troll and simply ignore him. If he is afforded an avenue to spew his negativity, he wins.                                                                                      The other members on PPU are awesome and one bad apple shouldn’t ruin it for others.

its all good, it was hard to see him waste away, but he took the opportunity to show me how to handle a bad deal in the best way

thanks for kind words, I feel bad about bringing it up in here, I should follow my own advice and ignore stupid stuff
