Maybe Florida Atlantic couldn't do better than Mike Jarvis.

Maybe FAU couldn't do better than a coach who ran St. John's so far underground, the sinkhole will eventually swallow the guy who replaced Jarvis, Norm Roberts.

Maybe FAU couldn't do better than a coach who was accused by one of his own players at St. John's, Abe Keita, of helping supply him with $300 a month for three years. The NCAA looked into that, but Jarvis and others refused to fully cooperate, and the NCAA was never able to make that charge stick to him. But still.

Maybe FAU couldn't do better than hire an insincere Northeast snob who hasn't coached in three years.

Maybe FAU really couldn't do better than Mike Jarvis.

How sad for FAU.

While I read all of the support for Mike Jarvis and the potential good he may do for a struggling program... I present to you all INDIANA BASKETBALL last season. Are we good?

"This has the same look and feel to what the Hoosiers did when the hired Calvin Sampras after he got in trouble at Oklahoma."

 


 

Who the hell is Calvin Sampras? lol, I think that would be Kelvin Sampson. I thought it was pretty funny though....Jarvis should be able to bring the program to respectability in a few years. Just look at what he did at BU and GW before he went to St John's

This is a great hire. It gets Mike Jarvis's ugly mug off my TV set and sends him to a place where he will never be heard from again.

whoa! lets be fair to Jarvis cuz st johns  was on the sinks before they hired him. Mike was on a list of the hottest coaches at that time and the redmen were on the decline for one reason, the best players in the city were, and are being recruited successfully by big schools in other states. Mike Jarvis was hired to do just that, and promissed so, but  him bein a hot black coach who could bring in the inner-city stars again was a sad and desperate attempt to bring the program back to life. Jarvis is a better than average coach in a situation he can handle now, and st johns needs more than a savior coach, it needs top players again. GOOD LUCK!

How bad is it?  Have you been following what has been going on with Indiana basketball?  This has the same look and feel to what the Hoosiers did when the hired Calvin Sampras after he got in trouble at Oklahoma.  A bad egg is a bad egg and no good can come from hiring someone who has already shown he can't follow the NCAA rules.  Don't know much about FAU but I wish them luck because I think they are going to need it.

Greg Doyel, we know you are a joke

Couldn't have put it better Sooner, writing just to get a reaction. The man makes many personal attacks on people and is the definition of a scum. Parrish is much more objective.

Great comment trespac!  Doyel is a no-talent hack who writes garbage just to get reactions.  An from the looks of it, he is getting reactions.  This is the same guy who said Pau Gasol sucks and then spent the rest of the article explaining that he didn't really think Gasol sucks.  What a waste of human flesh.
