Maybe it is like we refer to things at Fordham.

Is he Bob Hill bad or Tom Pecora bad?

Bob Hill's best year was an exciting one despite being .483.

Pecora's best year was .345 and aside from two games it was not very exciting.

I kind of agree with that. Bruiser would likely be more of what you just got rid of. He wouldn't get you to a higher level, but he probably doesn't crash the program onto the rocks either.

Right. I think with Phil we were in a nosedive as a program. With Bruiser it would be the same way. With the guy we're about to hire, it's a nose dive and electing total destruction on a quicker timeline. Fun!

Re: Phil Martelli Out at Saint Joseph's

SJU fired a lifer and a human college basketball brand for... Billy Lange? I figured they must’ve had a grand slam hire lined up when they ditched Phil. This is confounding.

Lots of other names were in the mix. Picking this guy seems like the worst choice of a lot of choices.

You sometimes manage to hit the mark, usually by pure luck.

This is a heck of a swing and a miss.

The process has wanted Billy Lange gone for awhile.

SJU hiring Billy Lange is a surprise however, SJU hiring a Eustace grad is probably the least surprising thing I've ever heard.

Yup. Great defense under Pierce and tanked under Lange.

Sixers fans are happy to foot the bill for his Uber to campus.

Dreadful choice.

This is very similar to UD’s firing of Don Donoher. Hopefully it turns out better.

UD hired Jim O’Brien who won 46% of his games as HC at Wheeling Jesuit and after an NCAA appearance with Donoher’s players proceeded to go 39 and 77 at UD. Incidentally O’Brien is Jack Ramsey’s son-in-law and SJU letterman. This SJHawk, was a near total disaster.

I was close to sjhawk’s age at the time. He has time to wait another 25 years for an Archie Miller to come in a win a few games.

Hopefully, it's just bad reporting and isn't true.

Hilariously, want to guess who the guy is who's pushing for Lange to get the job?
