SLU wouldn’t be the only school after him there will be competition for his services so I would not blame SLU for not hiring him. If Ford is back next season I will not renew my tickets until there is a change and that cannot be another coach fired that did not get the job done. IF and only if SLU actually does fire Travis Ford, i agree there needs to be a true once in the lifetime run at a big time coach. if not, the program slides back to where it was when Ford was the surprise hire imo. We need to keep pushing the program to the next level. if not, we will forever be stuck in this cycle of rebuilding, plateau, never getting to that next level, fire that coach, start over again, rebuild again. 5-10 years later repeat the entire cycle. as to beard, i dont know about the rest, but i am an american that believes "innocent until prove guilty". if Chris Beard was never convicted. if the only "witness" says he didnt do it she made it up, then i am struggling with the issue. couldnt SLU hire him with a no second chance clause? all i know is the guy's run coaching has been really good. normally we are fearing (myself included) the coach that cheats to win. i have never heard an inkling of that being the case with beard. the other positive, beard will likely have to give a discount, at least to start out with, to get hired again due to this current issue. when will we ever get another chance at a big time successful coach for the discounted price he is going to come with? of course all this is just wishful thinking. we havent even severed ties with Travis Ford yet. we all need to hold back and support our team for now. who knows, maybe the big second half run is yet to come.
