Right now,

Rob Ehsan = our Mark Gottfried.

I hope my equation is wrong.

Ehsan is recruiting at a very high level for UAB. He is coaching at a very low level, almost like a guy who had little to no hc experience before he got the job. Our fan base demanded this hire, and it’s not looking good for us

How did we not hire some sort of experienced, curmudgeonly assistant coach to maybe help make up for Ehsan's deficiencies? It literally seems like there's been zero changes from last season.

There have been differences. We blew out teams we were supposed to blow out. While Richmond is supposed to be down, they are a strong program and their player who scored 26 is talented. More umportabtly , they are no Furman. Who we lost at home to last year.

Yep
Double Yep! Lack of toughness and resiliency, especially against more formidable opponents.

Those teams that we've blown out are the worst of the worst. How can you take anything from beating them? Furthermore, we only beat a d2 (I think?) team by about 25. That proves nothing. This seems like the same team as last year with some more talent and depth. At this pace, we will win about 5-6 more games than last year and be no more than thoroughly mediocre. With a team with this experience and talent, that is a major, major failure.

Only thing that matters is getting better in time for the conference tournament which we will have to win to go to the tournament.
