Couldn’t n agree more with shorty. I’ m not a Coyle lackey but I honestly think he is the right man(person) for this time and place. I give him credit for his hires, completing the village as well as other miscellaneous items. It still comes down to ticket price or tv revenue. Universities need to decide.Re: Coyle. To be fair, we don't know how much leeway Coyle has to make changes. You may have the greatest ideas in the world, but if the big boss says "No," there isn't a lot you can do.
I do get the sense that Coyle is not a maverick or a boat-rocker. He's not going to do anything "new" or "innovative" without someone above him on the food chain signing off on it.
So, it could be that Coyle wants to make changes, but he can't get them approved. Or, it may be that a lot of things are in a holding pattern because Kaler is on his way out, and the new Prexy (hi, wren) hasn't taken over yet.
Sid has been saying for years that the reason Gopher teams are not more successful has a lot to do with the administration. he might actually be right.
