Above .500 with someone else’s players then lost the players. Pitino was under .500 and got 7 years but y’all got Ben on the hot seat after a year full of injuries?!?!? What’s the difference between Ben and Whalen or Pitino beside… well we know
You can keep flaming on, but I hope you realize this same crowd didn't Pitino to have 7 years. We were the outspoken ones then too. Maybe then it was our anti-Italian sentiments getting the best of us.
But if you want to know the difference. . .
Richard had 14 Big 10 wins in his first two seasons.
Lindsay had 14 Big 10 wins in her first two seasons.
Ben Johnson mustered up 6 Big 10 wins in his first two seasons.
They were both won more than twice as many Big 10 games as Ben in their first two seasons. It's not even close. Pitino was not a good coach here and I'm glad he got canned. Lindsay the same. But their first two seasons were not even remotely comparable to Ben Johnson's.
