No excuse for our esteemed athletic director to let it come to this...

I get that this season is a disaster but it’s not like he hasn’t won with his own players. He’s put himself in a position to give him slack in his leash upto this season. After this season questions should be answered

can somebody call DPS. There’s a murder in progress in Chaifetz Pavilion. It’s a double murder situation. Kent Miller is simultaneously killing the Billiken volleyball program and his coaching career

Congratulations to Kent Miller on becoming the first Billiken coach to lose to LaSalle. The Billikens had never been beaten (17-0) by the Explorers until last nights 3-1 drubbing.

I don’t follow this but how did a team who couldn’t win a game get this far?

I can’t explain it other than saying that all A10 teams are equally terrible after Dayton and VCU. They should get destroyed by VCU today. They did have some injuries early in the season. It’s possible that they have returned or they have made personnel adjustments.

Dropped a close first set 25-22. About to be down 2-0; as they’re trailing 21-11 in the second.

A billiken volleyball team should never drop 3 straight sets to any A10 team. It is truly a trash League and this team is at the bottom of that heap.

Well, Kent Miller finally did it. He has dropped the volleyball program back to rock bottom after Anne Kordes took them to 4 NCAA tournaments. Billikens lost to SEMO at home last night 3-2. I can't imagine Chris May allows this to continue past this season.

Maybe the AD can make some calls and get somebody big time like new tennis coach. I heard a rumor that his wish list includes the head coaches at Harris Stowe, Avila, Central Methodist, Webster University and U of Phoenix. I’m kidding none of those coaches would leave for slu now. The program is laughed at and looked down upon within the local volleyball community. If it wasn’t D1 the relevancy of the program might be even with JFK High School. I say give current coach a raise and 10 more years. At least he has a pulse which seems to be the only real criteria for being the slu volleyball coach.

Volleyball went 2-0 this weekend but against two very bad teams in Fordham and Rhode Island. The Fordham match was comically bad volleyball. This team cannot pass for sh*t and is very bad defensively at the net and in the back row. Kent "Teflon Don" Miller will somehow finish 3rd in a bad conference. It remains to be seen if May has had enough. My guess he's out after this year.

SLU and AD May are all about the $.  Paying a volleyball coach not to coach is likely a tough thing.   How much longer is on Coach Miller's contract?  Or is it an annual contract to be renewed or not each year?

Yeah I'm not sure. I believe he's in his ninth year. It seems like Chris May when doing extensions for coaches beyond year to year he goes with 4 years. It's possible he got 4 years to start and a 4 year extension. I can't imagine he got extended after watching May at games last year

Well the team has certainly been bad for nine years.  A real shame because Ann Kordes showed us what the program/team can do.

I watched it from the inside for a year. Anne was the antithesis of Kent Miller. Young, energetic, charismatic are all words you would never use to describe Kent Miller.

How come there is no similar angst for the Women's Field Hockey Team??  They are 0-10.  No love at all from this board?

And to think that the prior coach before Ann Kordis was the Hall of Fame Marilyn Nolan who had our own Billiken girls in the top 10 of the country. Two outstanding coaches and then nine years of mediocrity poor volleyball. What gives?

And to all who on this board who only care about men’s basketball, this is another reason why SLU is not as attractive as it as it could be toward the Big East.
