    Might not make it out of Morgantown with a job.

    Texas is so poorly coached.

    I hate so much that he is the coach at Texas only because KU shot 2-21 from three that day. I’ll never get over that loss.

    What is it with Iowa fans talking about march? Your team hasn't been out of the 2nd round since 1999.

    Your current coach has never even been to a sweet 16 in 30+ years of coaching.

    If your team hasn't seen the 2nd weekend of the ncaa tourney this millennium, you probably shouldnt talk shit.

    Ran Barnes out of town (who probably needed to go) for a shitty coach living off a once in a lifetime run. Seems about right.

    Lookit this guy. Cares more about his league’s perception than that of his team. A league that always comes up short, no less.

    In fairness to Texas, everyone wanted this guy when they got him. He was the “it” coach not just on the heels of his miracle run, but in the following years as well where he kept VCU at or near the top of its league with a catchy nickname for their playing style.

    Not sure why it’s not translating to Texas, atleast in a way that they would be maintaining the median level of success he had at VCU (first weekend NCAAT team), all I know is it’s just not working. Changing of the guard is needed for both parties, Shaka can go back to a midmajor and Texas can try their luck elsewhere.

    31 FTs to 11. Typical Morgantown officiating.

    Well you have WVU that keeps taking it inside and Texas keeps settling for threes. It tends to look lopsided when that happens.

    Other than his one fluke run, he did nothing at VCU that Anthony Grant, Will Wade, and others haven’t done. There were plenty on here who said it was gonna be a bust of a hire.

    And many of us have been saying for 3 years that he’s terrible and Texas needs to fire him if they want to compete for real.

    Where you at @SheriffBufordTJustice?

    That we are sabotaging our program.
    That is recently.

    Most saw that this team this year has taken a step back instead of forward.
    Pretty much was the kiss of death for Smart.

    Now I doubt any of the players will play for him because there is a very strong chance that he is gone.

    We will see.

    Maybe he will awake from the Dead.

    How bad does he want to keep the job. It looks like the players no longer care.

    It doesn’t matter how bad he wants it. The dude can’t coach. We have been telling you this for years. He had one fluke run in an era when college basketball allowed a lot more clutching and grabbing by his “havoc” D.

    Wonder if Gregg Marshall would still walk to Austin for the job.

    He isn't a terrible coach but I think he even knew his name was much bigger than his worth.

    They had won 2 big 12 games in a row before almost beating Kansas and now they no longer care?

    Talking about when they hired Smart.
    Marshall tried to campaign for the job.

    Don't know now if they would be interested.

    Shocking that people either don't understand when that happens or just don't want to acknowledge why it happens. When one team takes 30 shots from 3 and the other takes half that amount, the fouls and FT attempts usually aren't going to be even. Also, when a team feeds the ball inside all the time they're going to get a lot more shooting fouls before they're in the bonus, obviously. I always laugh when people list FT disparity like it's proof of biased officiating or something. Much more often than not, it's due to different styles of play. Not to mention WVU had 28 more rebounds and 17 more FG attempts than Texas....
