Hobbs and the BCS

1-15 against the BCS on the road. 15 straight loses. 15 in a row. Even teams such as Illinois Chicago have beaten multiple BCS teams on the road in recent years. 

After the recent the Auburn game Hobbs stated in his Hobbsian way. "I think they're better teams - that's what's different. "We're GW and we're coming in here trying to beat an SEC team. It's always difficult."

Sir you are not GW. Is he saying that if he had better players he could beat SEC teams? Isn't that usually the case. Essentially he is saying that if he had a SEC caliber team he could beat a SEC team. Genius. In that case sign me up for a head coaching job. (and also pay me half a million per year)

DC Funny Man Writes up on "FKH"

Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post blog and possibly my idol since 2007 write about Fire Karl Hobbs.   Don't worry sir we will pace ourselves. Your thunder is our thunder.


Hobbs excels with U-10 USA team

According to

"During the summer of 2007 USA Basketball selected Coach Hobbs to serve as an assistant coach for the U-10 World Championships. Hobbs and Team USA brought home the silver medal in a closely contested championship game against the host Serbia."

Hobbs Bio

If Acting does not work out for him, I am sure the Prince George's County Pee-Wee Basketball League could use a "star" coach for one of their teams.

Newsflash: Hobbs' can act better than he can coach!

Maybe he should stop making commercials and hit the recruiting trail or take some lessons from John Thompson on how when to exactly call a timeout.

Hobbs' Acting Debut.


GWU BASKETBALL FANS.........please use this topic to post your favorite Karl Hobbs quotes

Here is one of mine

I think (how I act on the sidelines) is a product of my competitiveness," Hobbs said. "I think it's a product of my passion to win. And to me, there's nothing more important than winning. I'm just so desperate to win, and I think sometimes I have to control it and not let that get the best of me."-Karl Hobbs


Coppin St. WTF!

Hobbsie just lost to a team that was not only 0-10 against DI opponents but got manhandled but Dayton and Richmond. If they lost by double-digits to these two A10 teams I wonder how much Hobbs is going to lose by to Richmond in less than 3 weeks from now. 

Some quick Coppin St. facts. 

  • 16-21 last year.
  • Lost 4 Starters and retained the Powerful MEAC POY who suprising played all 40 min agsint GW. Hmmmm... I guess we are keeping Diggs (13 Min) Hollis (20 Min) and Spoon (who hasnt seen the floor since playing ~10 min against American) rested so we can make a HUGE RUN for the A-10 regular season championship title.
  • Were the play in team last year in the tourny. That theam Lost to a team we crushed last yr (Mt. St. Mary's)
  • Coppin St beat a D3 school in Delaware called Wilmington 94-73. We could not even put up more pts than a D3 school. Could Hobbs lead us to victory against the Wilmington Univerisity Wildcats? This school just became a "official University"

Karl Hobbs is a disgrace to our University

A basketball coach has 3 jobs: to recruit players, to teach them a few good plays, and to control his players on and off the court. For years now he has failed in all three of these aspects of coaching. He is paid an absurd amount to go out there every day and lose to the likes of Vermont, Hawaii, and the 1-10 powerhouse that is Coppin State. Our premier player, Rob Diggs, sits on the bench for the majority of the game, while he sends out Noel Wilmore to jack up threes for 20 minutes and prays that over a third of them go in. It is time for our university to take a stand against Karl Hobbs and his awful, awful coaching methods.


It is time

to Fire Karl Hobbs.
