Baker and Lee are huge liabilities. Getting Kerr back and Jordan Brown staying out of foul trouble (even though 4-5 fouls were flops) should prevent those two from seeing the floor.

Akinjo is what he is but Terry is going to be a stud. It’s too early to tell on guys like Koloko or Mathurin.

Baker is another one who has steadily regressed horribly under Miller.

You have to at some point be good to regress.

He at least showed some promise when he first started playing last year. Then it has been steadily downhill. Miller has actually been making his players worse, not better, of late...

It was bad enough to lose against a mediocre Stanford team, but now the team is down 7 at the half at home to freaking Montana.

Sean Miller's firing is long overdue. He brings nothing positive to the table at this point.

JFC imagine wanting another coaching search.

Would you rather have a toxic coach who cheats and still can't win?

Of course, as long as an incompetent like Heeke is running the Athletic Department, we're screwed either way.

I would hire Desiree Reed Francois from UNLV (who has Tucson roots as a graduate of the U of A College of Law) as the AD and let her hire Sean Miller's replacement.

You don’t get it. Robbins isn’t replacing Heeke... He ignores the AD, boosters, alumni, ex players etc... He’s an idiot when it comes to running a university and a huge narcissist.

Then the Regents need to show Robbins the door.

So devils' advocate why did they wait until now? I assume they mean Book and Pasternack talking about lack of judgement and clearly they knew about that stuff ages ago.

A cynic would suggest the 3 touted freshmen last year convinced them they might be able to win lots of games so they didn't do it then.

I think you probably nailed it. They had to make sure they had the 3 freshman on board first. Cynically, there is something called a "bait and switch". Just a guess, I have no clue about the deadlines, etc., but probably timed to lessen damage to recruiting.
