That they hoped Texas got Shaka Smart as their basketball coach because then the two major head coaches would be Strong and Smart?

I think it was j_stew, but I could be wrong.

But well, whoever it was, you got your wish, damnit.

Legsdiamond, let's pour a little out. We lost our homie.

One we knew would inevitably come, but at the same time hoped never would. I guess I was hoping that he wasn't quite satisfied with where the program had gotten, though it made huge strides during his tenure. I hope whoever we get to replace him can generate the same energy and excitement that Shaka was able to. New coach will be inheriting a talented young team.

Where do we go for our next coach?

Here is a nice lil list of possible candidates.

http://www.midmajormadness.com/atlantic-10/2015/4/2/8327207/shaka-smart-texas-vcu-candidates-replacements-who-next-coach#comments

This is our best recruiting class in a minute... I hope we don't lose any of them due to Shaka moving on.

he's deferred big raises to have that money put in to the program and facilities at VCU. yes, the money is definitely a factor, but not the only one.

like i said, it feels like we lost a homie.

i'm happy for the man and grateful for what he's done at VCU. he took this program to a new level. we gotta get someone in who can continue that trajectory. i feel a little lost this morning as so much of our identity as a program and fan base was wrapped up in Shaka and the Havoc system.

i mean, does Havoc no longer live here? is it still Havoc you fear? what we gonna chant now at the Siegel Center?

so many questions.

and i think there's lots of reasons why this was the job for him. one being that as basketball coach at Texas there's a little less pressure than at a school that only has basketball to focus on, or focus more on, like UCLA and NC State. doubling his salary is certainly enticing. and Austin is probably a kickass town to live in. the facilities and recruiting base in Texas are great. so, lots of reasons.

it's a sad day in Ramnation. but we gotta continue to support with as much excitement and enthusiasm as we always have, or at least as we have these past 5-6 years.
