Certain biases are pretty apparent when that is allowed constantly without any backlash but if I were to reply this would be moved to rewind too. Lol.

If a coach has a career 474-226 record, won a Div III National Championship, won a NIT Championship, was 6 time conference coach of the year, and was first or tied for first in conference 12 times, would that qualify for HOF?

Absolutely should. Especially in a school's HOF where he gave them the only championship I see them realistically ever winning.

It took Rutgers many years to dig out of after they had to fire Mike Rice Jr for abusing the players. They did and GW will.

Great recent success at Rutgers, not the easiest places to win, Rutgers and GW, but the right Coaches will always succeed at both programs. 

 In the case of Pikiell and Hobbs the same two Coaches!  

I mean if this is allowed to go unchecked maybe I should tell everyone about those unnamed players and what Nero was up to from 2011-16

There's a middle ground here between saying everything's always Ok no matter what self-destructive
acts are undertaken or remarks university leaders make--and substantially withdrawing support.
 Let's face it: we're all inclined to support GW basketball and it is a large part of our lives. We may wish for healthier interests, but that's the reality. We're here all the time, year round, when there are no games and despite how much GW has resolutely tried to help us totally lose faith.
   GW leadership chose this path of self-destruction. Pretty much those involved are gone, deservedly. One day, GW should right the wrongs done because the real story is very, very ugly. We've been on a six-year nosedive--and to say we shouldn't ever discuss it is ignoring the elephant in the room affecting us today. While we can't take back the truly awful and immoral things that happed around the GW basketball program, we can at least understand why we are here. 
   We went from one NCAA and two NIT appearances, including cutting down the nets at Madison Square Garden to talking about dropping down to DIII in a pretty rapid spiral. Not even the Patriot League. DIII.        Meanwhile, we are changing the name of the team because of just some activist students/strident professors, and their let's gently say, misplaced sensitivity. This constant turmoil doesn't help building back a program. Nor does having interim leadership at the top or a board that makes spineless decisions.
      Add in these presidential remarks, which may have been offhand, a signal flare, or may have been because the interim president comes from a DIII school.  It may have been telling the students what they want to hear. Even if you believed it, you shouldn't say it aloud if you didn't want to even inadvertently damage the program. In a normal world, there would be a long road to travel before this got anywhere near happening, but this is GW. So anything is possible.

I’m shocked at how many people want to literally give up and end the program because we had 6 bad years (I realize it’s only 2 or 3 posters, but why would you even visit this site in the off-season if you’ve given up?)

Sounds like the president wants to give up

I can't be the only one excited for the sheer number of streakers if they name them the Buffs right?

Washington Basketball Team. Or keep it classy and reverse the offensiveness with the Washington Red Coats!

A great victory for everyone who was insulted to the very fiber of their being by "Colonials".

Let's take the Stanford/Dartmouth/ Syracuse route and go with a color.

I vote Buff or Buffs because it is unique. And you don't have to change anything.

The GW Mascot for the buffs better be a naked guy or gal

ML should but they'll never do it. They delete him out of the championship anniversary videos when they even remember to post about it. What makes you think they would honor him after driving the school bus over him a few dozen times lol. Tonya and Forest would be sick to have to see that day lol

The truth came out. That dead spin article gets a lot right. The video alone should show you that ML wanting to whistle blow that creepy discount Kevin Spacey isn't that large of a leap of faith. The only things really omitted in that article were who the "5" players were, all of whom had personal grudges or were doing some WILD stuff in the background. Yes I know all 5.
