Sutton Out at Oklahoma State

April 1st, 2008

Sean Sutton's two year stint as Oklahoma State head coach is reportedly coming to an end. Various outlets are saying Sutton is being "forced out" regardless of whether he ends up technically resigning or not.

Sutton's brief record is 39-29 over two seasons with two NIT losses. Making things worse for Sutton is the lack of talent on the horizon. The Cowboys have two players locked up for next year who are glorified high-major prospects, while rival Oklahoma is bringing in Top 20 recruit Willie Warren.

March 19th, 2008

A rundown of some of today's coaching news:

- UAPB head coach Van Holt resigned after six seasons at the helm. The Golden Lions finished 13-18 this year, and Holt's overall record was 50-124. This record might not look good but consider that UAPB was 4-51 in the two seasons before Holt took over.

Multiple sources are reporting that Arkansas State has hired former LSU coach John Brady. Brady replaces Dickey Nutt, who resigned after 13 years leading the Indians.

Brady was fired by LSU in the middle of the season, with the Tigers struggling to an 8-13 start.

There was some recent rumblings that Nolan Richardson, the long time Arkansas coach, would get the job.. but talks fell through.

Seven Day Stretch: Sutton Brothers Going Different Directions

February 15th, 2008
Three weeks ago I pegged Providence College as the Seven Day Savior (team), and they have collapsed since then. Two weeks ago, I put Seton Hall in the same category and they too, have fallen off the radar since my selection. Even my choices of SDS individual awards have been hit. Two weeks ago, it was Central Florida. Last week it was UNC-Asheville. Both teams went from undefeated when I wrote about them to losing…in UCF’s case, more than once. Last week I selected Drake and probably put a scare into those

Seven Day Stretch: The Week in College Hoops

February 8th, 2008
Okay, this may now become a curse…I have written this column two times now and each time I’ve written about a savior (team), that team, or teams, seems to flop the following week. This past week’s victims are the teams from New Jersey, specifically Seton Hall and Rutgers who were both 0-fer for the week in the Big East. It was an especially bad week for the Hall as the Pirates had won a nice stretch of games to put themselves in position for an NCAA Tournament bid and are now, at best, back on the bubble.
