FSU's athletic program is getting destroyed when it comes to basketball

Posted by Admin on October 6, 2013 at 5:05 PM

What I mainly try to do on this site is promote the FSU basketball program. I truly believe that FSU has one of the better coaches in the nation, has had just as much ACC success as anyone (not named Duke or UNC) under Hamilton, and that Hamilton has also done a great job of putting players in the NBA while he's been there. The numbers and stats are all there to back these claims up. Just peruse the website.

However, today I came across a recent feature from Sports Illustrated which was out to establish "college basketball's top 20 current programs." This is a link to the breakdown of the Top 5, but it also has links to the rest of the Top 20 as well as "honorable mention" programs. Considering the recent successes of FSU basketball, I expected them to at least gain a spot on the honorable mention list.

But what I came to find was just a strong confirmation of what I already knew- The investment that Florida State's athletic department has made in the basketball program really, really, really sucks.

And I'm not here to write another typical Florida State basketball piece, the "it's amazing what Leonard has accomplished here given the circumstances" piece we've read a million times.

But it's starting to get a bit ridiculous at this point.

Just click that link and look at some of the programs they have on there- they've had nowhere near the success Florida State has had on the court as of late. The little care that exists for the basketball program in Tallahassee is deemed SO mediocre that a list made a year after FSU's best run in the history of the program can't even include FSU on the list.

Now, granted, this list is most likely opinion-based. Florida State's basketball program has carried this reputation for a while, so it wouldn't surprise me if the college basketball writers at SI just whipped up the piece without doing much research at all.

But there's no doubt that the investment into FSU basketball is still below-average. Hamilton has proven he can bring success on the court, and it's the athletic department's turn to prove they can do their part. The mix of these two components are what make programs elite.

I know you haven't been here long, Stan Wilcox, but- your move.
