•"The secret is to have eight great players and four others who will cheer like crazy." --Jerry Tarkanian
Alford was 24-9, finished 3rd in Conf, lost in first round NIT in year 1 at New Mexico with players he didn't recruit.
Rice was 26-9, finished 3rd in Conf, lost in first game(round 2) of NCAA in year 1 at UNLV with players he didn't recruit.
I think these are very comparable stats. I wouldn't have and won't judge either off of the first year. I like both Coaches results, although I'm sure we all wished for even better for our schools.
Seems UNLV's MO for new coaches is to sign them to a 3 year and secretly guarantee a 2 yr extension. Hauck got a 2 yr extension too. My only guess is the AD thinks they can't get more than a 3 yr initial congrats approved by the Regents.
The raises for both were pretty negligible too.
Eh, hopefully, that was Kruger's deal. Despite his "squeaky clean" image, Kruger's players sure had more than their fair share of run ins with the po po.
Just my opinion, obviously, but I really couldn't care less what UNLV pays Rice....Why does this matter at all?
