Exactly my point. They've made strides in their play but haven't seen the results since the last 3 out of 4 games have been versus ranked Power 5 teams. This gives them a chance to see some tangible results from their work and get some Ws. This will do wonders for a team with youth and new faces and lead to greater improvement moving into conference.If the Gophers don't beat these teams by 10+ points each, CBJ should be fired.
The fact that you made this comment is sad "Let's see how they do with 3 match-ups against some non Power 5 teams over the next 3 weeks." - We are a big ten program, it's a joke that we are even scheduling these teams.
The teams for reference:
Arkansas Pine Bluff #354 KenPom
Chicago State #343 KenPom
ALcorn State #266 KenPom
Should the Gophers falter and not perform to your expectations, I strongly urge you to contact Mark Coyle. Why waste so much hot air on a message board. If you want real change, you should take the hour that you spend each day berating the coaches and players on the GopherHole and leave 50 messages for Coyle with all of your solutions. It might help if you open up your pocketbook too and write a nice check for the new designer coach Coyle will hire mid-season.
