    1. Most underachieving college bball coach

      2012 There isn't a team in college basketball that would have a problem with Calipari's level of success.
    2. Most underachieving college bball coach

      Any excuse to shit on Calipari in a down year... You can't use the talent recruited as a sole basis for judging Calipari. His entire pitch to get that talent in the first place is that he's the fastest road to the NBA. Of course he's going to get more talent than any other coach, because he has to reload the roster every single year. But if you're going to judge him... Judge him on overall success. 81% win rate at UK. One title, 4 Final Four appearances in 8 years. Can you seriously with a straight face tell me you think he's underachieving? If you just use the 8 years that Cal has been at UK, Coach K has 2 titles, but Cal has twice as many Final Fours in that timespan. But your poll conveniently goes all the way back to the year 2000, when, surprise, Duke won a title. Convenient. He's taken a 9 loss team to the Final Four and an 11 loss team to the Final Four. This team has 10 losses going into the SEC Tournament. Sure, I'll admit this isn't the best team we've put on the floor during Cal's time at UK, but as a UK fan, I'm quite happy with his level of success, and I like our chances just fine.

      You're approved for the Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin Cajuns! Request here (politely) for Louisiana-Lafayette's logo as your avatar picture. Once your account has been elevated you will gain access to the shoutbox and the private conference subforum. The 2021 CFBHC season has been underway for a few weeks. Your 2021 roster can be seen here. Place your depth chart here; if you are not sure to how to properly format the chart, look here. Make sure to request an account on the interface, that's where we handle gameplanning and recruiting (Make sure to choose CFBHC, not CBBHC!). Recruiting is currently underway, with the first few weeks already in the books, so you'll definitely want to read up on how that works. You are expected to maintain Louisiana-Lafayette's Wiki page. If you are inexperienced with wiki editing, that's OK, we have a template you can use. You are also responsible for individual season pages for each year. You can use Western Michigan's 2021 season page as an example there. Feel free to PM me with any questions regarding this. If you have any further questions, concerns, or comments don't hesitate to ask in the chat or message me directly. There's a lot to catch up on, coach, and you're starting out in a hole.. Also, because this sim requires timely interaction, be aware that if you are inactive for 14 consecutive days or fail to perform recruiting duties for your school for two weeks during the season that can be grounds for losing your team. Welcome to and to !

Maybe he spent his points on some monster croot, maybe he spent them at Arby's. Who knows? With every position now represented, every coach in the conference should look to this as an example of how to build a foundation for the future. All that remains is to try to land a whale in JUCO. It will be hard for anyone in our conference to top this class. South Alabama Jaguars 46th nationally (-3) - 2nd Conference (-) Commits This Week: Complete: Analysis: Coach Neovenator signs an OG, further strengthening his line. This group still need help at DE and OLB, but it is shaping up to be a stellar class. Texas State Bobcats 58th Nationally (-2) - 3rd Conference (-) Commits This Week: Complete: Analysis: Coach Rabidsnowman finally lands his QB, Thomas Maddox. He also adds an OG for a little more depth. This class still has a few needs to fill, most importantly FB, FS, and SS. Georgia State Panthers 71st Nationally (-1) - 4th Conference (-) Commits This Week: Complete: Analysis: Rookie coach ProBowler adds another solid recruit to his class in FS Danny DeLoatch, filling one of the Panthers few remaining needs If you go by the Total Stars metric, which is arguably the best way to measure recruiting in the Sun Belt, this class ranks second overall in the conference. Remaining needs: Punter, Kicker. Troy Trojans 86th Nationally (-4) - 5th Conference (-) Commits This Week: Complete: Analysis: Coach Sbowman had a down week, failing to sign anyone. Time is running short, and there is still a lot of work to do, with holes at RB, FB, C, DT, FS, K, and P...but at least we're to the point where we can start talking about this group as a class. Appalachian State Mountaineers 100th Nationally (-2) - 6th Conference (-) Commits This Week: Complete: Analysis: New Head Coach Carl345 failed to sign any recruits in his first week with the team. With the smallest class in the conference, there is much work to do and not much time to do it in. Show us something, Coach! Arkansas State Red Wolves 101st Nationally (-) - 7th Conference (-) Commits This Week: Complete: Analysis: Rookie Coach T40Flamelizard steps it up big time, pulling in seven recruits this week, bringing his class size to 21. This class still needs a FB, TE, and P. This group won't win any recruiting awards, but at least it's a solid foundation to build from, particularly with the returning talent on the Red Wolves roster. The fans have to be happy with the work this staff has done, particularly starting so late in the process. Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks 105th Nationally (+4) - 8th Conference (+1) Commits This Week: Complete: Analysis: The Warhawks are the only team in the conference to move up in the national rankings this week, signing three players to their defense. Coach Jared's class is beginning to take shape, but still lacks a QB, FB, C, DT, SS, and P. Definitely things are moving in the right direction with this team. Coastal Carolina Chanticleers 110th Nationally (-5) - 9th Conference (-1) Commits This Week: Complete: Analysis: Coach Jeff adds five more depth pieces, but that wasn't enough to hold off the surging Warhawks from pushing them back to 9th in the conference standings. While it lacks the star power of some of the higher teams, there is clearly a strategy at work here, as several players are ready to start as true freshmen. This class still needs a FB, WR, SS, K, and P. Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns 115th Nationally (-2) - 10th Conference (-) Commits This Week: Complete: Analysis: Interim Head Coach Nu Battles has pulled in seven recruits, bringing the Ragin Cajuns class size to 25. For being the worst class in the conference, this group isn't bad at all. Remaining needs: FB, WR, FS. If you rank by the Total Stars metric, which is arguably the best way to rank classes in our conference, this is not the worst class at all, ranking 4th in the conference. Hopefully a qualified coach will be found this week to take control of this program and move them forward. At least that coach won't inherit a sinking ship.

      Maybe, but Weldon is the man to beat right now.
    11. [2021] Week #7 - 4 PM

      Singletary really came up big, for being an unheralded rookie forced into a starting OLB spot.
