No sir Ehsan, the expectations that fans have were built prior to you coming, and are part of the reason there was an opening for Haase in the first place. Gene Bartow is responsible for the tradition and the expectation on the southside. Your job is to live up to it.

Good grief. He is talking about the expectations for this year's team based on what they did the previous two years. And he was an integral part of it.

Have we really reached the "Picking apart everything he says for flaws" after only Year One?

So you are saying tradition is built in 2 years?

No, that's not what he was saying. "Built up a lot of tradition". Maybe expectation was a better word. But hey, if he had known fans were going to pick his words a part, he would have brought a thesaurus to the game.

You know as well as I do that often times coaches and people in general only see history from their perspective. But it's good that you "know" what he meant.

It appears to me that he mentions both tradition and expectation separately, and that the reference to the past 2 years and his integral part of it was referring to the expectation part of his comment. I'd have to hear the quote for better context though.

Why not dissect the words & interpret them to mean what you want them to mean instead?

Ehsan is well aware of the legacy of Gene Bartow and in no way feels that traditions and expectations began with Herod Haase. you want confirmation? Ask Ruth Bartow about Rob Ehsan. I'll hang up and listen...
