    This is a joke. He has yet to win a game in the Tournament. It’s a clean program but we lost to Indiana State, not Indiana!

    I agree. Just as with Mac, Tad has hit the proverbial ceiling. It's time for a change and I'd put money on RG thinking the same thing.

    Not good enough, time for a change. They should be 10-0, can't lose games like that. Tad is similar to Mac, just can't recruit the guys needed or inspire them enough to take the next step. Mediocrity is not acceptable.

    How long of a leash does he have if he misses the tournament again?

    The expectation on this year's team is NIT

    It is a ceiling that Tad also set.

    Insanity. CU isn’t going to find a better coach than Tad Boyle.

    We need to know our place in college basketball. This is our ceiling.

    True statement. Also true that we have one round of 32 appearance. Is NIT/CBI/1 and done in the NCAA good enough? I don't think so. I want this program to take the next step. That said, if I'm RG I would not fire Boyle unless I am 100% sure I have my guy lined up who I firmly believe will be an upgrade. Probably tough to come up with the money for a guy like that when we're still on the hook for MM's contract. :(

    What is ridiculous? Patton got us to the second round at least. I’m not expecting winning the PAC 12 every year but I do expect beating Indiana State on a neutral floor and qualifying for the tourney

    That's right, just like Mac. We need more "no excuses" coaches here. It's gonna happen, RG will make a move.

    Winningest coach in CU history. Continues to add wrinkles and improve as a coach. We're still 8-2 right now. Talent is as high as it has ever been.

    Improvement? Please show me the improvement from Tad's record since 2011. They should be 10-0, they gave away those two games. And once they get in the Pac, they're gonna get torn up. He's had plenty of time to increase recruiting and wins, it's not happened.

    That's not improvement, that's ceiling at best.

    Did you listen to that postgame interview? Tad didnt give excuses. He took responsibility for the loss. That is the opposite of FHCMM.

    Cu basketball was so bad, even average tad doesn't get scrutinized like football coaches, lucky for him.

    I don't care about taking responsibility, I care about this happening over and over again. These kinds of losses have happened far too many times with Tad, it's not a rarity.

    This isn’t football. Basketball season does not end with one bad loss, although some around here think it does. Today’s loss is not acceptable. It is not a reason to blow things up.

    Agreed. Tad has proven resilient over the years and has bounced back from losses like this.

    How this team responds against either Hawaii or UNLV will tell us a ton about the maturity and toughness of this year's team.

    Looks like it will be Hawaii. Would that count as a road game instead of a neutral?

    Recruiting under Tad:

    2018 - 3*/1 | NR/1
    2017 - 4*/2 | 3*/1 | NR/2
    2016 - 4*/1 | 2*/2 | NR/1
    2015 - 3*/1 | NR/1
    2014 - 4*/1 | 3*/1
    2013 - 4*/1 | 3*/2 | R/1
    2012 - 4*/2 | 2*/4

    Where's the improvement? That screams ceiling to me. I've supported Tad as much as I have Mac over the years but ceiling is not acceptable to me. Mediocrity is not acceptable to me. I don't think it's acceptable to RG either. It's time to make a change. It's time for "no excuses" such as the one Tad gave after this game.

    Have you seen how bad the rest of the Pac-12 is? Could go winless in the NCAA tournament this year.

    No way. They will get blown up on visiting courts. They don't have a good track record on the road and I don't expect that to change this year. That's just another measure where Tad fails.
