He is not very mature as a coach - and it shows.

You're dead-on... It's fine to chew out a guy, and bluntly lay out his situation in private, but in public is taking it a step too far. I'm not even opposed to chewing the team out in public, IF you do it as a group.

And just in case someone asks, I didn't like it when Huggs did it either. But, I don't really remember too many (maybe Barker for not playing through a bad back?).

I may be in the minority on this but these these guys have been playing ball and getting yelled at way before they got to UC. I could care less if mick calls a player out. Has he been wrong with any of his comments? I dont think so. They are playing in the Big East and getting a free education. They should be able to handle a coach blasting them in the paper. Some of these guys are 21-22 years old, they need to grow up

RE: Fire Mick Cronin?
just to be clear, i don't think it would be smart to fire cronin. practically speaking, this is his first year because he was hired so late last year and missed an entire recruiting season. andy kennedy did no recruiting either, so this is really his first class of players. it's the equivelant to taking over a team that's been on probation for two years and is now off of it. you're not going to be good right away if you've missed two recruiting classes regardless of who is coaching.

i'm just surprised uc isn't better than this, that's all. i wasn't expecting them to do much, but i wasn't expecting them to do this little either.

were you ever told you weren't good enough, that the only reason you were on the team is cause no one else wanted you? To the papers and city no less -

You just don't do that - only Nancy can say that 03-wink

oh come on, willy's just frustrated and wants to win. can't blame him for that. he's looking for a scapegoat, a reason why we suck. that being said willy, count me in as one who disagrees with you as well.

RE: Fire Mick Cronin?
I really wasn't truly asking to fire him right now, just wanted some discussion to be honest. Having said that, regardless of wins or losses, WHEN is it reasonable for us to start seeing some progress on the court?

And I sure as heck don't want to hear from Cronin that we don't have any shooters etc. because we just had a Top 25 rated 6 man recruiting class (you don't get classes that large very often) and should have nabbed a couple of shooters if necessary. I think horrible shot selection has as much to do with the poor shooting as anything.

For only $7,501-$12,500 you can get him to speak at your event. I hear he is a great motivator too. Guys this is a great deal!

Mick does not get fired this or next year. The jury is still out. The problem is that this team was so low when he got here, that no one should call him a failure yet. But what would be a fair judgement year?
What should be the maximum time allowed before a tourney bid?

Biggie's foot has been a big issue in regards to conditioning. After very short stints on the floor he needs to come out...
