I can’t imagine any Bucknell recruit is honestly considering the comments of a 47 year old townie living in Jacksonville, Florida.

Looks like we need to get this topic warmed up again.

You’re right, I wish ND would go away!

He needs to go. Everyone knows it but this board won’t embrace it.

Bucknell could certainly do a lot better.

For those that are around the program more closely, is ND likable? Personable? Do players like playing for him? Do assistants enjoy coaching with him?

Although it was hard to tell with his mask on, Coach D seemed to be dispassionate on the sidelines. From his body language and position and his eyes he seemed like someone who had already decided to move on. Just sayin'

George Mason wants Paulsen out! Can we make a trade??!! I agree with you Bison 54. Davis looked like he had no desire passion or energy! I can honestly say I have seen that look a number of times in the past... Pretty sad IMO.

That’s interesting about DP. At least according the standings, George Mason is competitive in a very challenging league. George Mason had the one magic season a couple of decades ago but it’s not like they were a perennial power before DP. Far from it.

In case you missed it, ND is not Bob Knight when it comes to displays of passion on the court, in fact back when we had an extremely passion at coach in Pat Flannery, it fell to than assistant coach ND to keep PF in check and keep him from being tossed. Fwiw he looked dispassionate as a Bison Asst, as a Colgate Asst, as a Navy Asst and as a Randolf-Macon HC who piled up close to an 80% winning % . So please do not start pinning the “ doesn’t care” label on him.

Also as for DP, I have no interest in a DP that does not have Dane Fischer as an Asst, as Paulsen’s recruiting “expertise” was the fact that he hired Fischer.

Don’t hold your breath waiting for ND to get fired on the basis of this effed up season. It ain’t happenin’ nor should it. Better focus on convincing the powers that be to let Meeks have another year.$

GMU was not a perennial power under Larranaga, but they also were far from a one year wonder. In his 13 seasons, they went 273-164 (.625) and made it to five NCAA tournaments.

I agree on not judging ND by his lack of outward passion. Also agree on Paulsen without Fischer.

My problems with ND don't relate much to outward emotion but rather to mediocre coaching and mediocre recruiting. His staff is not close to DP's staffs. My other, more minor problem is how he seems to go out of his way to ignore the fans on every possible occasion. The current staff has annoyed a lot of fans who attend the games.

At least from my perspective I think 137 has hit it on the nose.

It’s time for a change. That’s clear. The program has taken marked steps backward under ND. I do disagree with the the comment about quality recruiting. However we fail to coach them up and ND is a crappy game manager.

I don’t know anything about ND annoying fans, and if true it is of concern. I do not think that he annoyed too many this season however.

The team definitely has some young talent - it does not appear to be a downhill program in that perspective.

I have only watched games on TV or internet in recent years. One thing I have noticed is it seems like players are not having that much fun -- does it feel like that in person?
