from everything i've heard, they are pissed. can't blame them either from their point of view.
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..
is he there yet?
not a ringing endorsement
Alec Burkes is nothing much of note?
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:
