The biggest problem is the Athletic Director and his poor hire of basketball coaches. He is trying to keep costs low while he pays down athletic department debt. He is hiring low tier MN coaches that fans can connect with and help him raise donor monies. That's it.Some of you must be very unpleasant to spend time with in person. The constant negativity and endless nit-picking is just so tiring. I would hate to be your child or spouse who fails to meet expectations day in and day out. It would also really suck to have you as a supervisor as nothing is likely ever good enough because its not exactly how you would do it.
The coaches and team are trying as hard as they can on and off the court. If you don't like a 4-1 record for nearly a full roster of new players, go follow another team. Maybe you can come back next year when Evans and Christie lace 'em up. Of course, I am sure they will disappoint you as well so maybe just watch the #1 team in the country each week as I am sure that will bring you greater joy and match your basketball acumen.
I know many of you are still chaffed about Johnson being hired. We are stuck with Johnson and company for a few more years so you may want to move past this. Or maybe share some of your expertise with the staff and AD. I am sure they would love to hear from you.
I might also recommend that you and your bobos cough up some major cash so Coyle can hire the biggest name coach out there and so we can pay the NIL necessary to attract the can't miss talent.
While you are doing that, I am going to sit back and watch this young team grow, gel, and IMPROVE. There is a lot of room for that but fortunately we have 25+ more games to go.
You can keep believing the lie that every year it is going to get better, but it will not. Both men's and women's basketball programs will be BIG10 bottom dwellers year after year until the change is made at the top. The results speak for themselves.
