Another Jeff Portnoy column

Jeff Portnoy is back with yet another column here on Hawaii hoops.

As for our two cents, nothing we write or say has any effect (as it should be -- we try to not kid ourselves) but barring winning its remaining games or making some noise in the WAC tourney, the UH basketball program needs some sort of a momentum changer heading into next season.

It's just not a sell-able business product right now and season ticket sales will drop even further heading into the 2010-2011 season.

By all accounts, Bob Nash is a very good and honorable man but his recruiting hasn't been up to par and that is unlikely to change if he is in that limbo stage of will-he-or-won't-he be retained.

But on the plus side, he has Bill Amis returning next season and two D-1 transfers who will also be eligible.

Regardless of a change or not (and for what it's worth), we do hope the personal attacks on Nash cease. They are uncalled for on someone who is trying to do the best he can with what he has in what is a sport -- a diversion whose outcomes have zero effect on the quality of our daily lives and those who surround us.
