Thread: Byington to JMU?

  1. Default Re: Byington to JMU?

    But now how do we continue and finally get to the big dance ...cause we could easily hire a new HC that gets us 20 + wins every season and then we get knocked out in SB tournament

    Looks like JB has his first test (unless Coronavirus is counted as first)

    I dont assume we lost him to JMU, itís just as likely that we let him go. He did very well by GS, but he peaked and it was obvious.

    Gasouthern01 said he went back and looked at our time in the SoCon. We were the only team per him to never make the Big Dance. I know we haven't been in the Sun Belt that long, but I wonder over a 20 year period how many different teams won the postseason tournament and got the only bid. Yes I know Byington was not here and obviously the probation cost us 10 years but Price put us on a winning track, but never could win in the tournament. Byington did win in the tournament and got us a bit further. Now maybe this next coach can do the same and take us 1 step further and win?

    I agree......I predicted on a thread toward the end of the year that he would move leave in a lateral move either this year or next. The writing was on the wall. Like I said on that thread every coach has a self life. He needed a reset, I wish him well,........ a good guy and a good coach. Good luck Mark!
    It's time to see what our new AD can do.

    Not true. Elon, Samford, The Citadel, VMI, Marshall, and Furman never won the tournament championship the years we were in the SoCon.
