Would like to see them stop recruiting players who are "even finer young men off the court" We need ballers not Boy Scouts. Will pay top dollar for sttraight up thugs with a chip on their shoulder and gang tattoos on their chest. Cornrows preferred but not required. No diploma no problem. We`ll provide one for you upon request. Felons welcome.

So what does this mean with two coaches both resigning together???

UMaine needs to release something on this latest departure. Maybe it`s time to make Curry the remaining assistant coach the head coach, this program just can`t get turned around. So sad.

Staff is  16–56 (.222) in 3 seasons. Who is Coach bringing in to right the ship?

Agreed.  Maine would get HUGE attention for hiring the first woman as HC of a men`s program.  Curry is a class act....I`d love to see her get the chance.

As far as Barron goes......I would think that the coming season could be his swan song if he doesn`t start winning some games.

I think we need to see where these 2 end up ? If they have better gigs lined up, then who is to blame them?  I still have faith in Coach B. last year was a toatl joke with all the cancellatioins, etc... I can`t support replacing him based on last year. I still believe he has this ship heading out of troubled water.
