    I've seen a couple of pretty negative things said in article comments about the potential BZ hire for wake, and that got me wondering what the general WFU take on this move was. Does anyone know of any non-premium WFU forums?

    There have been a hell of a lot of lurkers in the bball forum. Perhaps we can coax a few to actually post their thoughts.

    if you go to their scout board, I would say its about 95% against Coach B..

    I imagine that is getting written because they are just looking at W/L records.

    That's exactly what they're doing. Most of the media around here has no clue who Bzdelik even is and they are completely baffled that Wake is even interested in him. Mark Packer (yes, Billy's boy) went as far as to look up our record the 3 years prior to Bzdelik taking over and noted how we've been worse record-wise these past 3 years in conference play.

    Outside of Bzz's connection to the Wake AD, there is no way a school like Wake should be considering him. This is a sweetheart deal, plain and simple.

    That's on one hand. On the other hand, Bzz is definitely more qualified for Wake than Gaudio was. And you can argue that Bzz is even more qualified than Prosser. And he sure as hell is more qualified than Prosser's predecessor Odom was. Despite this, Prosser and Odom both did well at Wake.

    So fan reaction is overrated. They'd likely be pissed at anyone not named Self, Coach K, Roy, et al. If the new guy wins, everything will be hunky dory.

    I guess in one poll back there, 6% think its an OK hire, 29% do not and 65% have no idea who the hell he is, :lol:
