    He says he's a gopher fan, that's good enough for me

    I don't think he needs to take message board loyalty oath/test

    Because i admire other programs, go to their games as well. Cheer for the Gophers but that is not good enough for some. You have to say only good things about one coach, one program. Do i lose my Gopher card for attending and cheering for UVA at the final 4 ?

    No. I've stated my thoughts, on a gopher message board we're going to tire of consistently hearing about Bennets and Gards (and especially Wisconsin)

    Hell, I'll give Wi the respect they deserve in sports, they've been better than us. It's a culmination of things why they've been better of late, and not one thing.

    It's sometimes the way you go about it on a gopher message board that draws ire.

    Built can fight his own battles, but I really think if he bugs you that much, just him on ignore

    I’ve been less active than usual on this board/site because its mostly the same tired posters saying the same tired things.

    The reason people are sick of built is because a lot of what he says is true. And he is pretentious, but so are most of us, myself included.

    I find it odd how often he chooses to post about other programs here. Must have a ton of free time. I don’t have that kind of time or dedication to spreading the gospel of coaches I like, I guess.

    Thank you for saying this in a nice way. Build A Badger, I would just suggest less name dropping or adulation dropping towards programs that we do not like or enjoy their style of play and uVa. It has gotten really repetitive

    Where did anyone mention correct?

    We have had our differences and I try not to make it personal. We can respect each other's opinion, but that doesn't mean we have to agree. I do like Pitino's potential more than some of you, and by no means do I have a lower standard.

    To put it in perspective, I was years ahead of the crowd calling for Woog and Lucia to be replaced. Many looked at the overall records and said I was crazy, but I looked at the details of how they coached and expected better.

    Pitino was hired as a top P5 head coach very, very early in his career. He did not have the time to develop his style, recruiting standards, roster management, etc at a lower level before he was thrown into the fire. On numerous occasions I have supplied data that shows he is on track with many other successful coaches "at this point" in his HC career. He has shown signs of improvement and that he has learned from his early mistakes. The team is still not at the level that we expect it to be, but he has taken it to the NCAA 2 out of the last 3 years (It could have been 3 years in a row without the major injuries, etc). If Pitino stop improving, then I will again expect a better coach.

    Many of our fans are our own worst enemy! We have got to have hope and support our program instead of always using the past to bash our team.

    Apologies if I’ve missed it but I’d love to see this data you speak of. I don’t recall seeing it. Been a busy summer/fall for me so not much time spent on here. I recall it being the opposite though

Just because people are born and or live here and post only great opinions of the team and the coach does not make them a better fan than someone who cites facts, shares insights and observations and watches with a critical eye. We all want this to be a great program.
    Sheesh Built, put on your big boy pants...

    If you want to come on here and call BS on everything then - expect the rest of us to call BS on your BS. You come on here and explain how your the expert and advise all the recruits and know all the coaches have a philosophy on life and fandom but you want us to make sure our comments are not hurting your feelings? You have officially upped the ante on bizarre posts.

    Oh... I get it. Your trolling me/us. Good one! You got me.

    I find this thread interesting. Builtbadger definitely gets attacked by many posters on GH. Some I feel might be warranted (the Wisconsin comparisons), and some I might feel are unwarranted (opinions on the Minnesota program, not involving Wisconsin).

    I will say this though, some of you act like total a$$holes, and some of you type like this is a d$ck measuring contest. But hey, you get anything and everything on message boards, so nothing ever surprises me.

    Disagree. Ski-U-Merta must be observed.
