I can see it, but I dont think so. I think he comes back strong after having an off year. He fits right in with Golding's style.

There is no minutes left for him. When Kennedy cam back his minutes went down big time.

I’m not surprised about this. I told Adrian Broaddus that Golding was about relationships, but Adrian seemed to disagree. So we think Boum is coming back. We know Bienemy is coming back. What about KK?

Wait. Why does Broaddus think Golding is *not* about relationships?

Broaddus repeatedly insinuating that Boum and KK were gone because of third party handlers. I told him that Golding is about more than coaching - he build relationships. Seen Soule at Golding’s son’s high school basketball game said a lot. What also said a lot was Golding deferring to Soule, Bienemy and Tydus regarding whether or not to play in the postseason.

So you’re saying they’re all coming back?

I totally believe uni because Boum said publicly he loves playing under Golding.

As stated in an earlier thread, Adrian Broadus was not off base about "third parties" and you have to go off history at UTEP and UTEP basketball rosters have been fluid to say the least. Floyd went off the rails and Terry was such a micro manager that players were unhappy and there were unsubstantiated reports of players fighting among each other.

Golding is wrapping up year one under his belt and we still have a summer to go. It may the Bryson Williams sage all over again with Kennedy or he may pull the trigger early with a decision. The new reality of college sports.

I hope they all come back. I think that's why we are seeing some big upsets in the Dance this year. You have senior-laden teams, that have played together upsetting some one-and-done teams that have are as solid as room temperature Jell-o. I'm not delusional, truly the most talented teams win, but it at least gives teams like UTEP, a window.

Exactly what happened to Kentucky. They have multiple NBA prospects, but did not gel well as a team.

Exactly. Agree 100%. If we are ever able to get back and actually win a few games in the NCAA tourney its gonna take a team with multiple talented players. Keeping our starting backcourt, GETTING A PLUG IN BIG and sustaining at least a 3 deep on the depth chart will be imperative.

If that were to happen and we made an NCAA run, it would absolutely be another BCG situation and Golding would be out the door. It would totally be worth it, though.
Yeah probably. The good thing though is that it would end our 30 year drought and give the program a boost in the right direction. Senter just can't blow the opportunity.

This is what I don't get about most of you guys on here. Why the shitty outlook on Senter? Because he is doing things different from what WE think he needs to do?
What was his bad hire? Terry? Ok..but....MOST of the posters on here thought it was a slam dunk hire. I didn't. We got lucky he left. Look at the the state of ALL the other sports. MOST are tending upwards. In addition, he must consider the academic part was well.
You can question parts of his decisions, but we can question yours too, no? Trust the process....geez

I give Senter a B +. Basketball and football are trending in the right direction. What will get him into A territory are facilities upgrades...especially the Don - that place needs some money and attention to detail.

Also, get rid of the new orange.

Dude, I can totally agree with this....
The Tennessee orange does need to go....

All I said is that he can't blow the opportunity if he thats how things pan out. Our last AD made some good hires, but then missed opportunities in football and basketball to snowball the programs forward when things were going well.

Probably but if the local billionaire would step up with his pocket change maybe UTEP could keep Golding around. Most coaches aren't like Few at Gonzaga who has been there forever for a paltry $2M but if Golding and family learn to love El Paso, who knows?

Some of you on here are getting way ahead of yourselves. Some of you are already talking about multiple games in the NCAA Tournament.

I want to go to the NCAA Tournament as much as everybody else, but some of you are making it seem like Golding lost in the CUSA Championship Game. He had a respectable first year, but still couldn't win the Don Haskins Invitational and reached the CUSA Tournament Quarterfinals.

Golding has a long way to go to get this team where it needs to be. Is he a good coach? So far I think he is.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves because it will just lead to disappointment. I hope Golding does well and gets UTEP back in the NCAA Tournament. For all we know we're going to be sitting here in 3 years hoping for a coaching change. lol

The Foster & Stevens Basketball Complex wasn't built by supporters of the girl scouts.

What happens now??

New coach is going to have another tough first year. Probably a crappy year. How can a new coach dig UTEP out of this mess???

Hopefully Senter hires a coach who has some players he can bring .

But what's happens with the roster?? I actually find it hard to believe that any player stays.
Shockingly, you were correct on all of this

Someone keeps saying that Evans isn’t staying. Don’t remember who, but they’ve said it at least twice.
