My guess is the worst case scenario for many might be if we have a really solid regular season but get no payoff as COVID cancels the tournament. However, the regular season is so promising that you can't possibly justify not bringing Pitino back. I'm still one of his supporters actually.I've been as critical of Pitino as anyone but it feels like some folks want him to lose.
In general, I agree with you but I've seen Pitino teams collapse before (more than once) so I'm going to reserve judgment a bit longer.However, the regular season is so promising that you can't possibly justify not bringing Pitino back. I'm still one of his supporters actually.
Patience is a virtue.Only 33 more in a row and Pitino will be .500 in the B1G!
I have always been on his side, but will be honest that I didn't think he could get it done and have been critical of him at times. Still not sure if that is the case, but I don't see any reason that he couldn't evolve and be the guy. Maybe this is the start of a good run for a few years. Hope like hell it is, he sure seems like a great guy.Patience is a virtue.
He seems to be improving this season. His efforts in recruiting and transfers have been good and his coaching seems to be finally catching up.
Maybe he can build it here and we just need to be patient.
Using his overall B1G record as a hammer is tiresome. He has led two of our worst all time seasons and went a combined 6-30. It will take several years to get to .500 or above if he ever does.
Conroy seems like a likely candidate. Mitchell after him.New theory:
The Gophers were struggling, recently blown out by Illinois, when Omersa announces he's gone. Boom - the team promptly reels off wins over St. Louis, Iowa, and Michigan State.
Then trouble seeps in again with the Wisconsin game. Mutaf then announces that he's gone, and boom - the team hammers Ohio State.
Who can we sacrifice next when times get tough?
