I told you so

 I’m not finding much substance in this post nor can I tell even what you’re arguing. I’ve said that I don’t think shaka deserves to be our coach anymore based on his past here, he’s been a complete failure outside of that little NIT run.   I never said he deserves the benefit of the doubt either so obviously we’re not arguing about his   legitimacy as our coach this year. 

 Is this boiling down to your last sentence about whether this season can be judged at this time?  If so, you’ll never change my mind on that, at 6-1, seven games into a long season before conference play has even started, the season cannot be judged.  I just find that weird, and miserably pessimistic. But you do you 

you have done nothing but move the goal posts further and further away since your initial retarded post in this thread. none of the self righteous bullshit you keep spewing has anything to do with what you originally said, which is what the rest of us are replying to. try and keep up with your own idiotic arguments a little better, jesus. 

cameltoe's OP is all about how he was right that Shaka would be a great coach at Texas who would turn the program around. then you come running in here claiming that anyone who says that he's wrong is "just as ridiculous as the OP." so how did we get from there, to you droning on interminably about waiting to judge a season until it's over? Has Shaka Smart turned this program around? Has he been a great coach at Texas? No? Then Camel and his OP are in fact wrong, you moron.

You come in here insulting everyone else while literally talking about how intelligent you are/what a great fan you are, yet you can't even keep up with or defend your original take in the first place. i have no idea why you've chosen now to suddenly grace this board with your moronic presence, but you should definitely disappear again.

lmao. ah geez man, i am sorry that self awareness is so clearly lost on you, but there's only one person in here right now behaving like a someone who is miserable, and it ain't any of us who dared to say that OP was wrong.

 Nah this thread is packed with premature ejaculators. You need to find some balance in your lives.  I’m not moving any goal posts nor should my position be hard to understand.  It’s like you can’t comprehend it, or don’t want to, because it’s not pessimistic and does not line up perfectly with your views.  

Here’s where I stand.  It’s simple. Try responding to it without forcing positions on me that I’m not taking and making up lies that I’m not saying. 

 

-OP obviously jizzed prematurely.  Saying “I told you so” after what was it, two games into a season, is laughably dumb. Just ridiculous. Verdict? Ridicule: Warranted

 -Anybody saying the entire season, at 6-1, or earlier, as it were, can be judged, is jizzing prematurely. Verdict? Ridicule: Warranted

 -Having no faith in Shaka based off of the past: Fair

-  letting your lack of faith in the coach blind you into believing that if our players hit some more of those wide-open shots that things can’t change for the better: Not Fair

 

 As a college basketball fan you’re only cheating yourselves.  But as I said before, you do you. Getting furious that somebody doesn’t think like you do reeks of mental illness.

I don't really disagree with any of this except to say this about "being blinded."  We've watched Shaka's teams deteriorate over the time he has been our coach.  Our shooting percentages are terrible from the FT line, 2 pt shots and 3 pt shots.  Our stats are beyond awful.  There was a snapshot on the fire Shaka thread that really can't be explained other than very bad coaching.  If this were year one or two in Shaka's tenure, I would maybe agree that "I'm blinded into believing . . . ."  I'm not mentally ill.  I'm fucking sick of Shaka being a shitty coach and his teams year after year playing like dog shit.

Actually they're fairly decent from the FT line and from 2.  We just don't shoot enough of them.

I just hope we ride the line of mediocrity long enough for this post to still be a thing in March, instead of falling into the abyss of expected outcomes, where we all laugh at OP and then cry in our beers.

For 4 long years I supported Shaka and what he's been trying accomplish here in Austin against the wave of populist idiocy that's penalized him for rebuilding a program in a powerful Big 12 conference. Over the last 5 years the Big 12 has been the strongest basketball conference in America top to bottom, hands down. That is not up for debate.

When I said it could take up to 5 years to rebuild a program I was roundly abused, but that was the truth of the matter, and after 4 long years of extremely checkered luck here we are in year 5 and we are finally turning the corner.

Year after year of strong rercuiting has produced a seasoned and tough roster. We are ready to compete this year, and even though the Big12 remains one of the top conferences in America if not the premier conference, we're going to compete for the title this year.

We are a sweet 16 team this year. And next year, we compete for a national title. So I came back here to say to all the Shaka haters "I told you so". And I will laugh as this year unfolds and Derka become the biggest Shaka fan of us all, and as he gives all the credit to Yaklich, even though the credit belongs to Shaka.

This is what we planned for and dreamed of when we showed Rick B the door. This is the new horns basketball under Shaka, and we jack the 3 early and often, and we hit those shots, and we play D. Welcome aboard, folks.

Lulz.  What a fucking moron.

This team will not make the NCAA tournament. They'll be lucky to win 7 or 8 conference games which won't be adequate enough to make the big dance. NIT bound once again, the Shaka shit show continues you miserable fucking troll.

so is Shaka still on the Mike Krzyzewski arc? you know the one that was used to defend him routinely over the last two years, it went something like "dumb Duke fans wanted Coach K run off after he had a losing record in his third season, and three years later they were 37-2 and NCAA runners-up, you dumb fans don't know what you're talking about wanting Shaka replaced!"

he looks like he's a year behind at this point. :(  Coach K was .500/3rd in ACC play, 24-10 overall, and made the NCAA Tournament in Year 4. That slightly better than our losing conference record, 6th in the conference, and ending up in the NIT (and winning it!) in Year 4. 

This year he needs a winning record in conference and to win an NCAA game in order to keep pace with what Coach K did (23-8, 4th in the ACC, split two NCAA games-- also, were ranked in the Top Ten all season long). 

Then next year he needs to win about as many games in one year as he's won in any two years at Texas, he needs to reach the NCAA title game (and lose competitively), and he needs to win the Big 12. He probably better bring back practically every single player off his fifth team to make that happen since that '86 Duke team was loaded with veteran talent and then added Danny Ferry and Quin Snyder.

so how we feelin', are we all still stupid for wanting Future Coach K fired when he's clearly on the precipice of matching the career ascendancy of literally one of the five best coaches of all time?

cause I don't really feel like that

well, yeah, I gotta eat mine. I thought this whole turnaround thing was a sham, but to maul Duke by 32 points like that? Man, I think we're really for real this year.

Based on the timeline, he made this post in 2017 after we beat Lipscomb and before we had even played a major conference opponent.

Lol.  Has Camel just been a brilliant troll this whole time?   He can’t really be for real.

That sweet 16 run cameltoe was rambling on about is off to a good start. 0-2 in the Big 12.

Every time I see this thread, I remember that I gave Camel his 100th downvote to get him banned the first time. Good times.

I don’t even want camel banned this time. Just let him wallow in the pile of shit that is Shaka’s coaching.

Dear Cameltoe/Camelback74/Camelback80 (assuming you are not a troll and assuming you REALLY meant what you said in your OP):

Do you still think Shaka Smart should be coaching our basketball team?

Yep. Now isn't the time to judge this team or this coach. In April, we can talk about should Shaka be coaching this team. Until then, if you really consider yourself a fan, the team could use your support in a season that is still very much in play.

Your original post judging the team and coach is from mid November.  How can mid November not be too early but January be too early?

The team could really use our support? No, this team could really a competent coach worth a damn. You know, something that will make a difference. Fan support doesn't mean jack shit.

But anyways, this has to be some troll job anyways. No one could still be this in favor of Shaka still.

There are some that supported Charlie Strong until the very end, but this is a blatant troll job.
