Prohm needs to go away or say bye bye to the future/ money in ticket sales/excitement. Figure it out for ***** sake.
He killed usWorst team in the P6 coached by the worst coach in B12 history and is well on the way to the worst season in modern basketball. Bang up job Prohm, while it’s been obvious from the beginning you were awful, no one knew you were capable of redefining bad. And you may not even be fired, ISU bball is dead.
Totally agree, Prohm is totally over his head and has been since the start. He’sProhm looks like the last 6 years has aged him 40 years. Guy has to get out of here, he looks awful. This has to be horrible on his health.
I have to say though, for the most part the players have conducted themselves quite well despite a horrible situation.
These guys are better than o-18. Bolton can play, JCL would be a great piece on a better team, Harris could give you a few minutes, Solomon can play offensively in the post, and Conditt could be a good rim runner type. It’s not a great team because it’s missing obvious things, but it’s not this bad. No reason they couldn’t win 5 or 6 Big 12 games.
One of the tv announcers said that Iowa State's Offense was One Guy Dribbling the ball while the other four guys just stand around....Prohm Has GOT TO GO!I just got a case of the hysterical laughter watching them all just stand there on offense. Why is no one moving?
I would have gotten tossed that's for sure. It was the worst call I've seen this entire season. What do you have to lose when your team is 2-17?I will agree. His approach is better than mine would be. Killing someone over a basketball game is typically frowned upon. However, did he not put up a bit of a fuss with the official right when it happened and then again at the time out where the official pulled his masked down to talk with him sideways. Then directly after that just before play resumed also take a bit of time to "talk" with the baseline official, pointing at the official that missed the call? It appears to me to be him doing something, not Bill Self quality, but he wasn't just cowering. Larry would have had 73 expletives off before the dude would have known what hit him, but he also would have gotten a T and taken a bad trending situation and added 2 more points to it.
I THOUGHT he was doing something about it, maybe I misread his "working" for quoting bible verses to them?
I can tell you I would have handled it differently, I definitely would have gotten my pound of flesh, but I would have gotten a T, maybe 2 and that is something this team in particular can't handle; 4 points they had no chance of defending against.
And I agree, we don't need a nice guy, we need a coach. If they could be the same guy, I'd be all for it. But, nice only carries you so far. I do wish him luck wherever he ends up. He's a nice guy,
I like your comment "I don't know Prohm or any of the players personally"....that made me realize: Would I want to??? Do they give a rat's ass about us? Something very mercenary about the game now has certainly contributed to my apathy.Is this the worst team in ISU history? I've been watching ISU since the mid 80's and this is the worst I've ever witnessed. I don't know Prohm or any of the players personally. They may all be great people. Whatever. All I know is that they suck at the game of division one mens college basketball. Prohm is so bad at coaching, if he coached the Dream Team and only had to roll the ball out and watch, he would probably roll the ball out of bounds.
I'm sure that there are plenty of posters who have never hired anybody (excluding myself).Coaching hires/JP commentary always reminds me that 99.9% of people on this site have never hired anyone in their lives.
Sometimes things just don't work out, despite what you thought at the time. It happens....
I don't want a personality like Fran McCaffrey walking the sidelines, but I also don't want someone like Prohm walking the sidelines either. There has to be someone that's somewhere between the two.I would have gotten tossed that's for sure. It was the worst call I've seen this entire season. What do you have to lose when your team is 2-17?
