There is a reason Khys not here, I won’t share my specific opinion on that.
    What is with these cryptic posts? This is exactly where you share your opinion, or why are you even here?

    Iíve been following your team closely all year and I watch a lot of your games and attend most SDSU home games. Your team needs to move on from Richman. Heíll get another year (itís deserved) to turn it around and he might do it, but I think it will just postpone the inevitable. Hopefully next years recruits can get it done or the real issue is the senior leadership and they move on.

    Hopefully for the Summit League he can make NDSU great again. #MNGA

    Agreed ... particularly on lack of unity, emotion and leadership .... you can lead a horse to water but if the horse won't drink. Nevertheless I believe the HC is responsible for creating an environment of unity, a teamwork and commonality of purpose.

    Well next year we will have one senior and that is Dylan Miller. His playing time has been cut this year. He has not developed as well as most on here think that he should have by now. Question even if he would return for his senior year. That would leave us with Juniors Nnamdi (does not play at all), Jared (plays but is a defensive liability), Deng ( who is getting better but still has a way to go and not getting enough court time) and Tyson (who needs to be more aggressive and lead this team).
    As an outside person, can you expand on your thoughts?

    Dylan Miller violated team rules and was suspended for last week's games plus tonight.

    Is next year the last season of Richman's original contract ? Looks like he signed a 5 year deal starting in 2014/15. Would Larsen let him go into a lame duck status next season with no extension?

    6 games into the 2017 FB season, I was convinced that SDS had to move on from Stig as they did not seem to be playing to their ability. He did a nice job of turning that around in spite of the JMU loss.

    Itís now or never for Richman. Needs to get it back to above .500 this season, and show something by Christmas next year. Another flat Summit Lesgue tourney and Iíd be ready to cut bait.

    Guessing he would get the ax if Larsen wants to go in a new direction, the program is bleeding interest. Zero chance he gets any kind of extension unless it is an extension without really guaranteeing anything.

    Can’t. No one knows what’s truly going on except those that are in that locker room and athletic department. He needs to figure it out this offseason, though. Didn’t last year end with the team deciding not to do a post-season tournament because of the way it ended? Not a good look when the page still hasn’t been turned. To me, it just looks like no one on the team enjoys themselves. Richman seems to want to act like Bill Belichick from the Patriots, but without the winning (obviously). It’s just his style.

    I think Stig is a better coach than people think. The issue is that fans have to look 2.5hrs down the road and see NDSU. Tough comparison. We’ll miss him when he’s gone.
