just remember what happened to Texas Tech Coach, Rick Leach, when he thought
he'd become bigger than the game. Big mistake taing your ball and
going home. Grow up, or get out!
This headline just restates what has been Majerus' history for a long time--he's
always upset with his employer.
Saint Louis should have known what they were getting into when they hired
Majerus. Utah AD Chris Hill must be getting a good laugh right about now.Utah's success in the 90's was awesome. But it sure is good to have
Majerus gone once it became obvious how he was mistreating players.
Yes, ha ha--I'm sure that Dr. Hill is just stretching back and having a big ol
belly laugh over the fact that Majerus is not the coach of the Utah Utes
anymore. "The upper echelon of big time college basketball was so stressful.
Those trips to the Elite 8 and Final Four were just too much packing. Oooh
Rick's having a spat with a radio station---heh heh heh--I am one lucky AD!"Rick Majerus was the best college bb coach I've ever seen in this state
and his teams were three cuts above anything I've ever seen at the U outside of
Jerry Pimms Vranes, Chambers, Bankowski teams. Would I want him coaching my sons
Jr. Jazz team, No. Would I want him coaching young men who are learning to be
grown up men--in a half a heartbeat.
Rick M and a soap opera......neverThis world is just full of
Majerus is merely making a point to the administration. Not a bad point to
make, either. He is one excellent coach, but like many folks who are excellent
at certain things, he is erratic in behavior. Dr. Hill's life is easier, but the
bb team is poorer for Rick's leaving.
Distain?You receive your degree in Provo, Dick?
Jack Gardner was a much better coach than Majerus. I'd also throw in Stan
As an Aggie I think Stew is the best coach in the state. But I must say that
Magerus knows the game inside and out like no one else. Utah was very fortunate
to have had him as long as they did.
Majerus never did REALLY want to be in SLC as a Yewts - because it is in
Utah. He did say - If I had Shaun Bradley as my center - I would be
the NCAA champion - or something like that. I do believe that he would have done
so or come darn close.
Please come back to Utah and save our basketball program at Utah.Since you left, it has gone all down Hill, (pun intended)!!!!
No, Gardner and Watts were good, but not Majerus good. Majerus was and still is
the best coach this state has ever seen.
while we are all entitled to our opinions, and I think Rose is doing a great
job, but he has some more things to do before he is even in the comparison with
Majerus and what he accomplished at Utah. The man is a basketball genius.
Every time a big time job came open, his name was mentioned. When NBA teams
played in Salt Lake, often times there coaches were at Utah practices to watch
Majerus. Many people in this state refuse to acknowledge what he did because of
the way he did things. I will be the first to admit that his off court, and
even his on court behavior was often time tasteless, crude and vulgar, but the
man could flat out coach.
was the Bobby Knight of Runnin' Ute BasketballA great basketball
mindA great motivator and teacherA great big bully who mistreated
grade. But then I moved on...so should everyone else when it comes to our
favorite time in life, a favorite coach, yadda, yadda, yadda. This too must
pass. So to fans everywhere...enjoy the winning when it's good cause it can and
will change and be patient when times are tough and your team is just so-so...it
can get a whole lot better and it can also get a whole lot worse. Support the
kids, be true to your school and be gracious to those around you. Best of luck
to St. Louis University & Coach Majerus.
