100% yes she is. Marlene is simply the younger version of borton meaning she was given a job she A, had no business getting and B, was 150% in over her head. Just like when Borton started her career, Stollings had All-Americans given to her and that type of talent can hide and cover up a lot of short-comining from coaches. I truly hope we don't need another 5 year NCAA tournament absence before the new AD does something. I don't understand even waiting till next year when the job will be even less desirable with Wagner, Edwards, and Fernstrom graduating. Just like Borton, it seems like Marlene burned the Minnesota High School coaches bridge pretty early in her career. Add on top of that having players like Allina Starr being less than happy with her move back home according to the recent article, can we really think marlene will be able to talk any HS top level kids or McDonalds all-americans to stay?! It really sucks that when the job finally came over 3 years ago we have the creep Teague screw us over with this hiring. I just wish the AD would of had the guts to cut her this year. As we see, unless a miracle happens, Marlene will not be turning this around. She used up the All-Americans given to her and now we are left with a talented but under-coached team. After next year's recruiting class of Pitts and possibly Kaba, what will her classes start to look like. Minnesota kids will notice when they are losing every game by double digits and cant even make the WNIT. I don't see any more Carlie Wagners or Rachel Banhams (kids who were born and raised to not want to leave the state) coming in MN High School girls basketball. MARLENE actually has to recruit and win over these kids....so far I don't see anything to tell me she will be any better than borton at doing that. Once again for the record, I don't give Borton credit for Banham/Wagner. Their family and hometown pride kept them here.
