Vanderbilt, coming off a season in which it went 0-18 in the SEC and ended on a 20-game losing streak. I’m still of the opinion that another year would not have been the worst idea in the world (though I probably shouldn’t have scheduled that to publish literally 30 minutes before the decision was announced), but I get why you would have seen the team this season and thought a change was needed. At least I actually watched the team. Unlike these guys:
Bryce Drew: Great guy who had brutal luck this season with a lottery pick going down 5 games into the season. Athletic director on the job for 6 weeks fires him after Drew’s third season (he went to NCAA in Year 1). This business makes NO sense sometimes. None.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanHoops) March 22, 2019
I know that Vanderbilt didn't win a game in the SEC this year, but firing Bryce Drew after three seasons when his top ten pick got hurt in November seems like a bit much. You are, after all, Vanderbilt. https://t.co/4LAH41K2uX— Rob Dauster (@RobDauster) March 22, 2019
Vanderbilt just fired the guy who brought in the best recruiting class in school history.— Tom Hart (@tom_hart) March 22, 2019
Is this tired and completely predictable? Absolutely.
Are these mostly the same people who are blasting Vanderbilt for taking its SEC Network checks and not making an attempt to really compete? Uh, yeah.
Listen, we can disagree about whether Bryce Drew should have been fired or not. We can probably all agree that unless you watched at least the majority of Vanderbilt’s basketball games this season, though, your opinion probably isn’t worth much.
