Unless/until McGrath flops I'm all on board. He deserves the support of Seahawk Nation. He's talked a good game and he is recruiting and scoring good looking players. I have never felt a new coach should be immediately placed on the gallows and told to find a way out. He's doing his part, and as a fan, I will do mine. But, to each his/her own.
I find myself in agreement with 33. My support is with the man until he proves to be unworthy of it. I've seen a lot of coaches over the years (from Coach Brooks up to Coach McGrath) and I have given each my support until I felt they no longer earned or deserved it.

RE: McGrath was the right choice to build on success
Stating you are not ready to declare a new coach is the "right hire" in no way means you don't support the coach...unless you said "we made the wrong hire".

McGrath may very well be the "right hire", but who knows? I would make that statement for any new coach...just as I would support any new coach. You can do both ya' know, they aren't at odds with each other.

RE: McGrath was the right choice to build on success
Early signs are good:

* I like the renewed focus to developing a "total big man". Cacok adding a jumper will help him take his game to another level.

* The pedigree of assistant coaches McGrath has brought in is high. The combination of experience and devoted skillsets (such as Wolf being our "big man" specialist) have me very excited about the ENTIRE coaching staff. And this is coming from a UNC hater.

* The caliber of recruits brought in thus far looks strong too. You don't know what they're capable of until they start playing D-I competition, but at least on paper, our incoming players are promising. At least as promising as just about any other new coach's recruiting class can be before getting a season under his belt.


I'm bullish on McGrath. That doesn't me I'm sold on him, but I'm feeling good given the limited information we have.

That's a fair position to have. Can't say i really disagree with anything there.

RE: McGrath was the right choice to build on success
What hurt us last year was the Coaches inability or refusal to deviate from his plan. That was evident when we played UVA. I think C.B. has seen enough different styles of play and coaching to enable him to go from Man to Zone defense as needed. Almost every game we lost last year was due to this. This isn't the NBA, you can't play man defense solely and expect to win every game.

That is very true. Incredibly frustrating at times particularly when the refs were calling a tight game

We also were very small at our guard spots and had a hard time stopping penetration playing man. As a result, Cacock was in the position of trying to defend his man as well as a driving guard. This ended up I fouls or easy layups.

I don't know if McGrath will have a zone defense when needed, but I sure hope so.
