    I still support Pitino and think he is the right coach for our program.

    Good for you! I think he will be a good to great coach somewhere. I hope it works out for him here! Let's go Gophers!!! Just win some big games and see what happens. If we win 2 in a row Ewert PC will vanish

    Until they lose two in a row. There is still a lot to be decided this year for the Gophers. If they win 3 of their final 6 and one in the B1G tournament, I think they make the tournament.

    Me too, alchemy.

    We brought him in KNOWING he was young. KNOWING he'd have to learn. KNOWING he'd have to go through trial and error. And he's doing it well. He doesn't make the same mistakes twice, and shows every sign that he is growing into a coach that can lead a team for decades. We need to look at his component qualities and skills - not simple win/loss. Not for a guy we KNEW had to grow into the job a bit.

    I just don't see the sense in seasoning Pitino and then letting him go - at which time he'll go be successful somewhere else. Sit your @sses tight. He's going to be great.

    Pitino, I'm in your corner. (I'm sure you'll sleep better knowing that.)

    Still sending my checks, still going to games, still believing in this team but very curious as to what do people think he is doing well. Instead of constantly finding negatives what are his strengths or as one said his component qualities and skills ? Hard to look past terrible defensive rankings and wins and losses but i will start. He has good energy for the job, he loves his children. He was willing to upgrade his staff, he recruits hard.

    Save for the Michigan State game, they are playing hard. He and the staff are definitely developing Oturu. In all but the MSU game they are a few plays away. Their defense is getting better- they had a brief stretch of getting beat by drives and mostly cleaned that up in last night's game.

    He comes across to me as the everyday guy. He seems to be approachable, which I cant say about many college coaches. Maybe part of it is his stature, but when I see Pitino going up against these other coaches it almost comes across to me as a David vss. Goliath thing and I have to smile when David pulls it off. Still, gotta recruit and gotta win.

    I want him to succeed and agree that he seems to be a good guy. I have been frustrated with his recruiting and honestly expected more in his 6th year.

    Based on this post might as well give Pitino a lifetime contract.

    At some point maybe someday hopefully he will be great!

    Also playing hard save Michigan St.? Must have missed Boston College, Ohio St, and Illinois road games.

    And the defense getting better? Nebraska made 13 layups and shot 50%. If that is an improvement they must have been really bad defensively.

    I want the Gophers to succeed and by extension Pitino, but I don't remember when Pitino was brought in anybody saying that this would be a training job for Pitino. If he wanted to apprentice and not be judged by wins and losses he should have spent more time being an assistant for his dad or Billy Donovan. When you are the head coach of a power 5 program, wins and losses absolutely matter. From your opening tip they do. We got paying customers, a band, and uniforms and everything, the wins and losses count.

    I'm with you. Tough breaks this year and last year. I'm hoping for great things the next couple years.
