Head coach Stan Joplin was fired yesterday following the first losing season in five years for the University of Toledo men's basketball team. via Toledo Blade
Since: Oct 07
I remember watching Stan play for UT back in the mid to late 70's. Harvey Knuckles, Jay Lehman, Kevin Apple. The Rockets were amazing. They beat OSU, Mich, had 20+ seasons. I loved going to CENTENIAL Hall. I remember UT beating Iowas in the NCAA Tourney at the buzzer (78?) and then only losing by 6 to ND the following game.
What shame that it has come down to this. The Rockets used to have such a tremendous follwing. I wish Stan the best and hope some other school will pick him up as their coach. Go Rockets.
