Mike's Not Going Anywhere
As much as it pains me to say, he will be here next year. See basketball attendance chart below, starting at the opening of BWA:

Yr______Rank____Attendance
94______4_______20,134
95______4_______20,081
96______5_______19,261
97______5_______18,196
98______4_______19,406
99______5_______18,294
00______6_______17,807
01______9_______16,225
02______13______15,065
03______14______14,790
04______13______14,792
05______9_______15,788
06______12______14,958
07______9_______16,720
08______8_______17,148
09______11______16,043
10______25______13,182
11______29______11,884
12______23______13,096
13______20______13,750
14______21______14,023
15______11______15,519
16______12______14,879
17______12______15,247
18______9_______16,181


ETA: I just calculated the average attendance for this year, based on wikipedia attendance numbers: 13,437. A huge drop. So we could drop him after next year.

re: Mike's Not Going Anywhere
Bielema’s buyout and Nolan Court naming are the only reasons he stays.

re: Mike's Not Going Anywhere
What if we’re naming the court in order to appease the Nolan faithful while also getting rid of Mike? Just my thoughts, heard others mention this as well

You have to name the court and have the ceremony for it BEFORE you fire Mike.

If you fire Mike, then name the court: Nolan will speak to the crowd and tear the university a new one, or just as bad, he will not show up at the court naming ceremony. Nolan gives no fricks about the court being named after him.

Nolan appears to be a stubborn old man. Loyalty to a fault when it comes to Mike. He has to be able to see Mike isn't getting it done.

I get that logic completely, just think they’d be better served doing that this year. A huge flop in recruiting this year (which is very likely) coupled with this ending to the season, I wouldn’t expect there to be much support at games next year either. Just think there’s no ideal scenario here. Should’ve named the court after him awhile back

re: Mike's Not Going Anywhere
They should’ve had the naming lined up for the 25th NC anniversary celebration few weeks ago and fired him today but of course this is Arkansas without direction and leadership.

re: Mike's Not Going Anywhere
I think Yurachek is just in over his head. Public support for leaving Little Rock was at an all-time high and then he makes that terrible Mizzou deal. Bungled the Nolan court naming and pretends like the board of trustees and state legislature have to get involved. Now he'll probably pussyfoot around with Mike instead of making the tough decision.

He’s been since day 1, he was hired to be a puppet.

He was brought in to do as he’s told.

I assume that's tickets sold, not average attendance.

Very seldom are there more than 7000 actually in the building.
