    Basketball program destroyed - long 11 years

    Will our basketball team ever be relevant again?

    If Jans can recruit, it absolutely will.

    It's crazy to think how long ago it was that we were relevant. With NIL, you need a lot more money to get players, so I don't see us being relevant again anytime soon.

    Agreed it was destroyed under Stans. When he let cancers like Dee Bost, Renardo Sidney, etc. do their destruction with no accountability, it all went down hill. When you have cancer, you cut it out or nuke it. It’s the only way.

    Stands let it rot from within and then we made an absolute terrible hire behind it. So you can say it started with Stands and the Cheerleader helped kill it

    Cant blame Ray- he never should have gotten the job

    Not defending it, but our basketball history has been terrible overall since I remember being old enough to watch State which was in the mid 90s. 2 great seasons under Williams. A great season in 2004 under Stans. A nice tournament SEC tourney run under Stans in 2009. That’s basically the highlights of MSU basketball in my lifetime that I can remember. No matter who takes this job it’s difficult. This year is still less frustrating than the Howland years because we underachieved every year with him. This isn’t really an underachievement we just don’t have the players to compete with Bama or UT. We are going to be looking at a Rick Ray year though if we don’t beat UF Saturday. It’s a must win to keep our team bought in. The schedule gets lighter in February and we need to take advantage of that.

    An excellent characterization of what transpired.

    We got an SEC championship in 1991. That was a really nice year as well. I've quit watching this year though. A team that can't score has little to no hope in this day and age of basketball when playing a good team.

    I don’t doubt his coaching ability but we have to see how he recruits. I’m still 100 percent behind Jans. He seems to beat all the teams he is supposed to beat. We got dealt a bad first half SEC schedule. Even UGA is much improved at 3-1 and currently winning at Rupp arena

    Give the f'n guy a chance. It's its 1st f'n year. Ya'll suck as fans. No one is patient anymore. This is a program that is years away from being solid under him. Give him another year before you bitch about it.

    Jans will be fine. Total faith in that guy.

    Running stans off remains one of the dumbest moves in our history.

    If we had a good class instead of one of the worst in the sec in recent years, I'd have more faith

    Jan’s is a good coach for sure. Just worried the long term damage incurred from Ray and Howland will carry over during his tenure. Hard to remove the demons.
