Well there's always next year...uh no, maybe not.

This team continues to spiral downward. As in the last couple of years they fall apart after the Christmas break. The future doesn't look any brighter. The freshman are getting more playing time in favor of veteran players and things don't look good. All freshman played and collectively shot a brilliant 15%(2-13).

I have to agree that it has gone down hill. But it seems they have continued to give it their best at least from listening to the game tonight against Elon. It was a nail biter to the last few seconds. And it was a road game which we know is very tough to win. And on top of that Elon is one of the better teams in the conference. So even though I am disappointed in the year as a whole I am still a loyal fan of the ladies.

http://athletics.wofford.edu/news/2013/ ... ath=wbball Looks like we lost it at the FT line, especially in the second half. Ashton Fleming had a nice game - she shows a lot of promise.

It's quite a shame that a group of women this talented and driven cannot display their true potential. Match up wise, these girls can hang with just about anyone in the SoCon (with the exception of a few like Dewart from Chatt) just like they did in AAU and High School. The difference at this level is the overall management and fundamental offensive/defensive schemes of a team. Wofford Women's Basketball does not have this and it is obvious in the games.
9 years is enough time to build a program and improve and this has not happened. Time to make a change and give Ridgill a shot, Wofford owes that to the players.

Well stated tdogfan97. I am not sure Ridgell is the answer but something needs to be done.

http://athletics.wofford.edu/news/2013/ ... ath=wbball Waxed the Furples, playing one of our best games, esp. in second half. Wrightson 25 points, only 12 team turnovers, wow. This was a very good group of seniors - simply put, this team should have won more than it did. There is some good talent returning.

Tonight we play UNC G away. The loser finishes the regular season in the cellar ... something to play for.

http://athletics.wofford.edu/news/2013/ ... ath=wbball Daniella Motley, second team all conference. Very well deserved. She always played hard, and though thin and not very tall, was the second leading rebounder in the conference ... TEN double-doubles. Art History major - cool. Also highly deserving, and recognized here, was Mariah Masalin, who played courageously despite the loss of her mother, and who is about to tie our all time games-played record.

Now, let's get out there and recruit at least three very fine players for next year; surely if Davidson can, we can too.

Was reading a post on the men's site about Noah Dahlman's sister who is going to Vandy next year and posted about Brad Loesing's sister and the great year she had at Buffalo. With the history of our current coach, getting these girls to even look at Wofford (which we should have an inside track on) is very doubtful. Did a little research on the Girl's BBall team. Under Coach Farmer over the last 9 years they have averaged 3.7 wins and 15.5 losses in the SOCON and have never had even a .500 record. Is there a reason we don't get a new coach? I Would think the girls deserve better and Wofford should have higher expectations for the girl's BBALL program (or any program for that matter) Nice guys who graduate players should also be expected to win(or at least compete) Somethings not right.

I must agree. We OWE it to our lady players (in all sports) to have the best chance to be successful and have the most positive playing experience possible. Our girl's basketball program has more talent than its record has shown - particularly this year's good senior class (which did not improve in its four years) and young talent. There is no reason, for example, for Davidson's girls perennially to be so much more successful than we have been in women's basketball. If this year we cannot recruit some good players to join the returning talent, and have a markedly better record next year, a change is in order.

3for5terrier you could not have said it better. Farmer has had ample time to turn the program around and has proven several times (and several recruiting classes later) that he is not fit to be a successful coach in SoCon. There are only 2 SoCon women's basketball coaches currently (Chatt, Samford) that have been head coaches longer than Coach Farmer. All of the other schools (UNCG, Furman, Davidson, Elon, CofC, Western, and GSU) have had coaching turnover in the past 9 years. Sure, some of these changes happen when coaches get offered better positions, but most of the time they have been to replace a subpar coach and rejuvenate the program. Wofford needs to show some commitment to the women's basketball. Hiring someone new may be a difficult decision to make, but it is surely not uncommon throughout the coaching world.

Honestly I am quite surprised that Edgar Farmer is still coaching this team. He might be a great guy and all that but he has obviously proven he is not the answer for the program. Sometimes I just have to question Richard Johnson's and Wofford's committment to winning in some sports.
