“Jamie Dixon leads TCU past Kansas, kicks Pitt in groin“
I’ve stayed away from BB talk on here because I historically haven’t been that interested in it. But halfway through this season, and after reading the complaints about Kevin Stallings on here, I started paying more attention.
And what a waste of time that was. Again, I didn’t watch much Pitt BB under Dixon – just tourney games but it seems his teams were 100% better than what I saw out of Pitt this season… and I don’t think Dixon had that much better talent every year either.
I had a phone conversation the other day with some interesting third-party info being passed – which means it is 50/50 at best – but supposedly Stallings wouldn’t mind moving on if the financial side of things didn’t hurt him. Again, that may well be just water cooler talk but still… I wouldn’t be surprised on bit – would you?
We’ll wait and see on that. What is evident, and I’ll disagree with one of our commenters here, is that Stallings had zero control over that squad from the day he was hired. My take on that?
These student/athletes aren’t stupid and whatever happens in the Pitt administration as far as coaching departures, hires, press conferences, etc…, affect them way more than that stuff affects Pitt fans. After all, this is not only their educational opportunity on the line but in some cases it maybe their life’s work and huge financial opportunities in the balance also.
