Back To The Drawing Board?

Looks that way. Debbie Yow's letter to the faithful does not inspire a lot of confidence:

The conversations have been candid. We have not tried to sugarcoat the challenge of rebuilding our basketball program. Our absence for 5 consecutive years from the NCAA Tournament was noted by each coach as evidence that the program is in poor shape and will require a special effort to rebuild.

Finding a coach with the fight and fire to do this job has been a challenge. That said, we will find an excellent college coach who shares the vision of what State Basketball can become and is up for the challenge.

Like a lot of people, I'd been holding out hope that all of the developments today meant that Yow had her guy and was letting other candidates know they were out of the running. But nothing in this letter suggests Yow is set on anybody at this point. And that is very, very bad news.

We're pretty much screwed, is my guess.

Professor, without knowing precisely what the danger is, would you say it's time for our viewers to crack each other's heads open and feast on the goo inside?

Yes I would, Kent.
