    Probably an impossible request, but it would be nice if we could just let the season play out before starting a new fire Pitino thread after any particular game.

    I'm not calling for a lifetime contract for Pitino but it was nice to see how this team finished given how toxic some of the fan base had turned.
    Winasota Gopher now takes me seriously.....you should too.

    On the negative I hate that he let the team get caught this year without any good guards ready to save the season, and thus forcing Coffey to play out of position all year.


    Overall , I give a great deal of credit to Ricky Jr. and hope for the best going forward. I was ready to quit on him (and did quit on him 4x), if he could have grabbed Bill M's son Eric, but what the hell.. one more year for Jr.

    Now, now, I didn't do what you claim and I agree with your second sentence. I thought I made that clear.

    Are there gopher fans who actually do hate him? I find him enormously likable

    When he first arrived I hoped he become a great coach by the time he hit 40. Now I’m thinking it will be more like 50. I’m too old to wait out another decade.

    The OP is basically correct. Pitino has earned another year. I'm not optimistic about next year being better than this year, but he deserves the chance to prove us wrong.

    You did. I agree. My frustration with all the fire Pitino threads was not directed at you but a general observation.

    Indeed. And I don't mind being proven wrong if that happens. It's happened often enough in my life that I'm used to it.

    I don't care who he's talking to and neither should you. I only care if he closes the deal. Good Lord, you're a whiny little putz. You don't even have the talent to insult someone with bravura.

    I'm good with him coming back.

    Now if he could just get Hurt to pull a Jimmy Chitwood!

    Or pick up a couple of quality spring recruits because of a deep NCAA run.

    Hang in there guys. We made the NCAA tournament without a point guard. I am very hopeful that Pitino lands some good recruits this spring. This year has been frustrating. Not only with our play, but with numerous tough breaks on officiating. We're due for some good things to happen with recruits and the ball bouncing our way. I'm excited for the possibilities and I believe that Pitino can have many good years ahead.

    This season has been successful enough that I think it would be silly to fire him (though not as silly as firing a coach with a better six year record in 2013). That said, I assume his seat will stay warm unless he wins a tourney game. 6 years without one would he bad, probably needs to win one this year or next. Here's hoping he gets that tourney win this month.
