I hope everyone reading these comments understands what SUU mens basketball team
is up against. Going to D1 and becoming competative does not happen overnight.
Coach Reid has had winning programs at every level and SUU is very fortunate to
have a coach of his credentials at the helm. Given time SUU's program will
continue to improve. I am sure the President Benson is well aware of that and
supports Coach Reid. We are fortunate to have a Coach with his connections and
abilities. I have seen a huge difference in the caliber of player Coach Reid is
bringing to the table right now. They are not just good athletes, but also good
students. That makes a big difference. Keep in mind this years team only has
one senior. Be patient and let Coach Reids system work. It will, it has in the
past and it will again. The atheletes are in place let there coach take them
Did you not see we won SUUstudent. Obviously you are not a real SUU fan. No
one rip's his own team and coaches like this.
My understanding is the T-Birds don't need to rebuild, they are building right
now. Four of their leading scorers from last night's game are SOPHS, the other
two are JRS. Having that experience going into the Big Sky will be a boon,
especially where it is a lesser league than the Summit League and the Bird's
will be competing against more similarly-situated schools (and recruits) without
the brutal travel. The Summit League's RPI is currently 17, the Big Sky 26 (out
of 31 leagues).Coach Reid has been a coach of the year at every
level of basketball, and won hundreds of games over 30 years of coaching. The
commissioner of the Summit League said after last night's game he had never seen
any team do what SUU did to the Jags on their home court. Good on ya, T-Birds.
SoCaltransplant, unfortunately Roger Reid has one year left on his contract,
unless he gets bought out, we will have to suffer another atrocious season. I
like you hope that they can him this year and build for the future, he has been
an utter disappointment.
Looking at the roster, almost every player will be back next year. The team
seems to be playing good basketball right now.
Fantastic win!! IUPUI is a good team. The downside: This is going to possibly
hurt our chances that President Benson will do the right thing and make a change
at the Head Coach spot. One win, while great, does not atone for the absolute
ineptitude that we've witnessed from Coach Reid. We've got one season to
prepare for getting into the Big Sky Conference. Please spend that year
rebuilding, and not waiting our the lame duck season of a coach that will
absolutely not be brought back in 2013. We've got one shot at this. Don't blow
Huge win. Great job Birds.
