RE: Once again...
The head coach is responsible for motivating players. However in some circumstances and with some players that is an impossible job. I don't know if this team or these circumstances made it impossible or near impossible, but the possibility exists.

So should a coach be blamed if he can't do the impossible. Should a player be blamed if he refuses to be motivated. Sure the coach can sit him, but he catches heat for that as well. Damned if you do...damned if you don't.

Not just Ehsan, abut all first year coaches gets a pass in my opinion, especially when their point guard goes down first game. He did a lot of things wrong this year, but he is learning the job, and it is to be expected. Some of you know this but just can't help yourself but to place blame.

Hold judgment until he has two or three years experience. He's not going anywhere until then anyway.

Wonder how many tourney teams had a seriously injured player this year.

As I've said, even though i think this season was a colossal failure and Ehsan did very little to instill any confidence in me that he has what it takes to be a successful head coach, he still gets a pass. However, if next year is worse, equally bad, or only a slight improvement, then the heat should really be on. Especially if we have a full healthy roster. I doubt UAB would get rid of him but the primary impetus of his hiring (roster continuity, continued momentum) would be completely negated.

Maybe not explicitly in this thread but if you've been following along all season then you know it's happened.

So your assertion is that it happened, not that you can name a time or place. And that if I had been keeping up, I would know. Got it.

Yeah. It's happened. Multiple times this season on this board. Do you want me to go back and scour all the threads and quote all the times it happened? I'm not going to call anyone out directly but there's someone who has posted in this thread who essentially called this team uncoachable due to the attitudes of the upperclassmen.

RE: Once again...
You are probably referring to me, and I never said that.

The word "essentially" is a great word. You can take what someone says, throw the word "essentially" in front of it and then reinterpret what they actually said into whatever you want them to say. Essentially.

Well you are the one that said it happened, so, yeah.

Ehsan was a bad hire and is a colossal failure as a coach. We'll be stuck with him at least two more years, I'll wager. Or for however long his contract is.

He should not and will not (thank god) be judged on one year and one schizophrenic team.

Took all of 2 minutes to find that...and that's a mild defense.
