    Do you like Billy hire?

    How do you like the Billy Fennelly hire to fill the WBB assistant position.

    Your choices:

    Billy was a great addition (BF made a great hire)
    I trust BF (because you trust BF you are going with the hire, but personally you're not sure)
    Billy needs to be replaced (BF made a terrible hire)

    I say he could hire his dog for all I care. Bill Fennelly is the head coach and the reason we are always good.

    More like I trust JP. He would not have let this happen if he thought it was a bad idea.

    Re: Do you like Billy hire?

    I trust the head coach that made the hire happen. Not my job to question the hire when he works with him every day.

    Re: Do you like Billy hire?

    BF has never been one to just give out jobs or playing time due to sense of entitlement so I trust him that Billy has earned this promotion.

    Re: Do you like Billy hire?

    ^The idea behind the poll was fine. I just wish the options were better. Options 1 and 2 should be combined. I don't think it was a great hire but I certainly don't want Billy to be replaced ASAP. I'm somewhere in the middle in "wait and see" mode. I can't really voted for any of these options. I definitely think BF has earned some trust but I don't blindly trust people just because they wear the cardinal and gold.

    I'm sure Billy will be fine. I always figured there was a chance he'd take over for BF when he retired anyway. It appears the wheels are in motion for that to happen. Let's see what the kid has.

    That is basically what "I trust BF" is, wait and see.

    Looking it over again I can see why it is ambiguous. Basically, because you trust BF you are going with the hire for now is what that option is trying to say.

    Re: Do you like Billy hire?

    Had this hire happened as recently as two years ago, I don't think anybody would have questioned it. In fact, I'd bet there be at least a couple of people openly wondering how long it would be until Lyndsey joined them on the bench, and not acting like that was a bad idea. If the team bounces back and gets out of the first round of the NCAA tourney this year, 90% of people will stop questioning.

    The only 3 people that voted, "Billy Fennelly needs to be replaced NOW" are TornadoMan and his reffing buddies.

    There should have been only two options, yes the hire is OK or no it was a bad hire. The bottom line is BF is the head coach so no matter who he hired he has the final say. That is how it is in most succesful programs, you have the head coach and the assistants give opinions and usually only opinions.

    You better get to liking it. Our future head coach is on this staff right now.

    Some of the opinions have been stated in the other thread, but I'd be interested why the five people that voted for Billy to be replaced right now feel that way.
