    Blaine Taylor fired by ODU

    Now, he is 2-20 this year and he lost some guys off of last year's team.

    Overall, he has been at ODU for 12 years, gone to 8 straight postseason appearances. He has averaged a 25-10 record over the past 4 seasons. he was 237-124 prior to this seasons disaster. There is more to this story that got him fired, cause if you have all of these credentials you arent fired for one bad season and in the middle of that season for that matter.

    Also... There's no reason you have this bad of a season with what was predicted to be a "decent" team without something else happening.

    well they knew it was going to be a rebuilding team this year, but not 2-20. Apparently he came to a radio show the day after a game intoxicated. Basically lost best player in kent bazemore and also had to replace Chris Cooper who was the 2nd leading scorer from last year. The AD was asked 2 weeks ago about Taylor and he was quoted as saying that he was secure and nothing would happen....lol...Guess that is not set in stone.

    Re: Blaine Taylor fired by ODU

    Dawg, that's not the whole story. Remember they are leaving the CAA and the CAA won't even allow them into their conference tourney, so they really have nothing to play for this year. That makes his firing even more egregious. No excuse for this, unless like you say something else is up.

    We played them last year with our national champs and it was a terrible game for us. ODU was always good.

    I tell you, he should have never shaved that 'stache. It was the best in college hoops. lol
    KT is so knowelegable about basketball, he can back his **** up. He can rip a program 6 ways to Sunday, yet turn around in the next breath and explain why that same program should/could/will be/is a great program.

    This board would be boring if it wasn't for Kentubby's posts and the responses he gets.
    -fatboydog

    Kentubby is one of my favorite posters on this board. Sure he has some personal views, but this board would be so if everyone agreed all the time that it wouldn't be worth going to. I'd challenge you to find another poster on this board that knows as much about EVERY SEC team as he does. He knows more about lowly South Carolina and our recruiting then alot of our own fans do. It would be a sad day for the basketball forum if he ever left.

    Re: Blaine Taylor fired by ODU

    I must add this BTW, the ODU AD is Wood Selig, who is a well-respected AD. He was the first guy to put a clause in his coaches contracts that if they leave for a BCS team, that program has to schedule the coaches' old program for two or four years. Selig did that at Western Kentucky. Thus, Selig is a great AD and he knows what he's doing. I have to think something else is at play here.

    Clearly, it's other stuff. That's what the official statement says. Lost in the shuffle of this mess is that this is actually a good job. I bet lots of guys, even some head coaches, will try to latch on here.

    Re: Blaine Taylor fired by ODU

    He has a drinking problem. Taylor was clearly intoxicated at his coaches' show a couple weeks ago; couldn't pronounce his players names, slurred speech, spilled his drink all over himself. Final straw was showing up to his last game drunk.

    ODU tried to help but he refused to admit he has a big problem.
